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

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

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

Transmission of Babesia bovis by Boophilus microplus (Can.) was studied in 4 breeding herds of European and Zebu X European cattle in Queensland under different levels of tick infestation in 4 pastures on one station. The observations consisted of weekly counts of female ticks on the cattle,...

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

The many projects reviewed in this report on research on the health of livestock in Australia include about 20 on arthropods of veterinary importance, especially Culicoides spp. (as vectors of virus diseases), Lucilia cuprina (Wied.) on sheep, and Boophilus microplus (Can.) (including its action as ...

Abstract

Observations on the dynamics of the transovarial transmission of Babesia bovis by Boophilus microplus showed that, at 28 deg C and 90 to 95% relative humidity, a low proportion of the eggs laid during the first 5 days' incubation of the engorged female ticks was infected with the Babesia. However,...

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....
