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....

Abstract

Thirty-two calves, bred in an area where piroplasmosis was endemic, acquired infection with Babesia argentina and B. bigemina before 5-7 months of age. The animals were then maintained tick-free from 2 to 4 years. Parasitaemia with argentina persisted for the entire period in all but one animal,...

Abstract

Intraerythrocytic forms of B. argentina were exposed to various doses of gamma-radiation and then inoculated intravenously into splenectomized calves to study infectivity and immunogenicity of the irradiated parasites. Commencing with a dose of 8 krads, the proportion of organisms capable of...

Abstract

The Babesia status of Bos taurus in endemic tick-fever areas of Australia is described, in the light of control programming, with emphasis on Babesia argentina. Inoculation rate is a function of the number of infected ticks attaching to each animal daily. The age-structure of the non-infected...

Abstract

The immunological reactions of calves to inoculation of plasma obtained from infected calves were studied. Three types of antigen were recognized. The first was an autoantigen, associated with polymeric haptoglobin complexes, which produced non-specific precipitating antibodies. The second group...

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

Preliminary studies have demonstrated changes to the lipid metabolism of cattle acutely infected with Babesia bovis. Total lipid, total cholesterol, and phospholipids decreased significantly during infection. Associated with this was a decrease in concentration of serum lipoproteins and a loss of...
