Babesia sp. is a protozoan hemoparasite that affects livestock worldwide. The Colombian Middle Magdalena is an enzootic region for babesiosis, but there is no previous research providing detail on its transmission cycle. This study aims to assess some Babesia sp. infection indicators in cattle and...

Abstract

Tick-borne diseases are of increasing concern in many countries, particularly as a consequence of changes in land use and climate. Ticks are vectors of numerous pathogens (viruses, bacteria, protozoa) that can be harmful to humans and animals. In the context of animal health, bovine babesiosis...

Abstract

Babesiosis and Theileriosis are tick-borne diseases widespread in tropical and sub-tropical regions with high economic impact worldwide. In Portugal there are at least 4 tick vectors known to be competent for the transmission of Babesia and Theileria sp. identified: Rhipicephalus bursa, ...

Abstract

The Babesia bovis and B. bigemina apicomplexan protozoa in conjunction with the rickettsia Anaplasma marginale are intraerythrocytic pathogens that are responsible for the most prevalent and costly tick borne diseases (TBD's) of cattle worldwide. These organisms are historically associated as they...

Abstract

To ascertain the infection rate for tick-borne pathogens in Zambia, an epidemiological survey of Theileria parva, Babesia bigemina and Anaplasma marginale in traditionally managed Sanga cattle was conducted using PCR. Of the 71 native Zambian cattle, 28 (39.4%) were positive for T. parva, 16...

Abstract

In an experiment using 20 cattle, a virulent field isolate of B. bigemina, an attenuated cultured isolate and 2 irradiated derivatives of the latter, only the virulent isolate appeared in the haemolymph and affected the reproductivity of ticks feeding on the cattle and was transmissible to other ...

Abstract

In this review, the current knowledge of the biology of Babesia bigemina in Boophilus microplus is discussed. Areas of controversy, including the existence of sexuality and nomenclature of stages found within ticks, are addressed. The factors that affect transmission of Babesia bigemina from (1)...

Abstract

Second generation larvae, nymphs and adults bred from female adult Boophilus microplus naturally infected with Babesia bovis and B. bigemina were allowed to feed on splenectomized cattle. The results indicated that Boophilus microplus transmitted Babesia bovis and B. bigemina transovarially. The...
