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

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

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

Two groups (groups 2 and 3) of susceptible two-year-old non-splenectomized Hereford cattle and a group (group 1) of splenectomized three-month-old calves of mixed breeds were infected with a virulent Babesia bovis strain. All non-splenectomized cattle were severely affected, and one of six animals...

Abstract

The haemolytic activity of serum complement was measured in cattle during B. bovis infection. It fell significantly on the 5th day after infection and was not detectable by the 10th day. After clinical recovery between 15 and 20 days after infection it was again detected in serum and gradually...

Abstract

The abnormal plasma proteins, produced during Babesia bovis infection in cattle, which form gels with protamine sulphate and ethanols were characterized. Their sizes and chain structures suggest they are intermediates in the conversion of fibrinogen to cross-linked fibrin. In addition, comparison...
