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

Serum carboxypeptidase B (SCPB) levels were measured in splenectomized calves and in non-splenectomized cattle infected with three virulent and one avirulent strains of B. bovis, and in splenectomized calves infected with virulent B. bigemina. SCPB levels began falling three days after infection in ...

Abstract

Five splenectomised calves were immunised with a soluble extract prepared from erythrocytes infected with B. bovis and then challenged by the intravenous inoculation of virulent B. bovis along with appropriate control animals. All controls died but 4 of the 5 immunised animals survived. All...

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...

Abstract

A cryofibrinogen complex, found in the plasma of cattle acutely infected with Babesia bovis (argentina), was characterized. The fibrinogen-like proteins of the complex were isolated and the structure of their polypeptide chains analysed. The chain structure was similar to that of soluble...

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

Sixty calves, 3 to 6 months old, were vaccinated once against Babesia bovis in groups of 10, by the following methods: (a) tick infestation; (b) inoculation of virulent parasites obtained from the tick-infested animals immediately after infection; (c) inoculation of the parasites used in (b)...

Abstract

When splenectomized calves were inoculated intravenously with various inocula (107 to 10-1) of Babesia bovis (argentina) Lismore (L) strain the mean prepatent period was inversely proportional to the logarithm of the number of parasites from 66 hours with 107 parasites to 220 hours with 101...

Abstract

In a histological study of kidney and lung of acutely infected cattle, samples were examined with haematoxylin-eosin, Lendrums acid picro-Mallory, and phosphotungstic acid-haematoxylin fibrin stains, direct fluorescent antibody techniques using rabbit anti-B. bovis cryofibrinogen and rabbit...
