Abstract

Babesiosis is estimated to cost the Australian beef industry $A 30 million per year and possibly 10 million cattle are at risk of of infection across northern Australia. The existing live attenuated vaccine has significant drawbacks in both efficacy and sustainability. At CSIRO Long Pocket...

Abstract

The development of recombinant vaccines against Boophilus microplus and Babesia bovis by CSIRO and Biotech Australia is briefly reviewed. The Bm 86 antigen, a membrane-bound protein from the tick's gut has been shown to confer immunity against Boophilus microplus in cattle; field trials in...

Abstract

Because the dominant antigens of B. bovis were incapable of protecting cattle against infection, it was necessary to isolate and identify individual immunogenic fractions. A combination of several recombinant antigens had given promising results.

Abstract

This review focuses on the possible approaches to vaccination against T. parva infection in cattle. The subject is introduced with accounts of the life cycle, the disease and the nature of immunity (both humoral and cell mediated). Approaches to vaccination are then given, considering in turn:...

Abstract

This chapter deals mainly with preparation and application of vaccines against T. annulata in cattle. After an introduction, the life cycle, pathology, epizootiological considerations and immunology are discussed to the extent that they are relevant to vaccination. A history of vaccination against ...

Abstract

The use of dead antigens as a vaccination method against Babesia is discussed in this chapter. Selection of vaccination antigens is considered and vaccination of bovine (Babesia bovis, B. bigemina, B. divergens), ovine, equine and canine species are discussed. Vaccination efficacy is evaluated and...

Abstract

An overview of attenuated and irradiated vaccines of Babesia is presented. The methods of attenuation which are discussed are as follows: rapid passage in splenectomized normal hosts, with consideration to Babesia bovis, B. divergens, B. bigemina and B. ovis; attenuation by "slow" passage (B....

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...
