Abstract

A generalized approach to modelling the epidemiology of tick-borne diseases is outlined after reviewing previous approaches to model Babesia spp. Approaches are described for investigating the distribution, abundance and management of such parasites. Geographical distributions can be explored using ...

Abstract

The role of antibodies in protection against B. bovis infection in cattle is reviewed and it is shown that they are an important effector mechanism. The use of protective antigens for vaccine production is also discussed and it is concluded that prospects are good provided techniques for obtaining...

Abstract

Experiments were conducted on the induction of immunity to Babesia bovis in cattle with antigen extracted from erythrocytes infected with the parasite. Protection after inoculation with crude parasite-erythrocyte stroma mixtures was as strong as that induced by natural infection. B. bovis appears...

Abstract

A review is given of attempts to produce protection against babesial infection by means of antigens derived from infected blood. So far it has been difficult to identify or isolate the antigens involved.

Abstract

This paper, which is concerned primarily with the diagnosis in Australia of clinical babesiosis in cattle (caused by Babesia bovis (argentina) and B. bigemina), includes a discussion of the distribution in the continent of the only vector, Boophilus microplus (Can.), which determines occurrence of...

Abstract

The optimum gel filtration fraction from lysate of B. bovis infected erythrocytes was determined for use as an antigen in an ELISA to diagnose B. bovis infection in cattle. Of 4 enzyme labels tested, horseradish peroxidase was the most suitable. The assay is both sensitive and specific in detecting ...

Abstract

Studies undertaken to determine the underlying epidemiological mechanisms that caused endemic babesiosis in areas of Australia infested with Boophilus microplus and to find methods for prediction that would assist babesiosis control are described. It was concluded that the failure of individual...

Abstract

Plasma samples from cattle recovering from acute B. bovis infection contain cryoprecipitable immune complexes (IC). Production of bovine and rabbit antisera to IC and subsequent serological assays indicated IC contained antigens of both babesial and erythrocytic origin. Vaccination of naive cattle...
