Abstract

In studies in Australia, Babesia bovis that had recently been exposed to gamma -radiation or had been re-isolated from cattle infected 12 months previously with irradiated parasites were not transmitted transovarially by Boophilus microplus (Can.), though the parent strain of the pathogen that had...

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

Boophilus microplus infected with Babesia bovis were transferred artificially from one splenectomised calf to another during each moult in the parasitic life-cycle of the tick. Eggs from the engorged female ticks recovered at the end of the cycle were incubated and the resulting larvae used to...

Abstract

Larvae of Boophilus microplus (Can.) from a culture infected with Babesia argentina were fed on uninfected calves until forms of the organism infective for cattle were produced in the ticks, 3-5 days after attachment. Subcutaneous and intravenous inoculations of homogenates of the whole larvae...

Abstract

Cultures of the cattle tick were experimentally infected either Babesia argentina of B.bigemina. Direct examination of haemolymph from engorged female ticks was able to detect only a proportion of those that would transmit the parasite to their progeny, particularly in the case of B. argentina....
