Abstract

A computer model was developed to simulate the processes involved in transmission of the cattle fever parasites Babesia bovis and B. bigemina between cattle and Boophilus ticks. The model of Babesia transmission was combined with a dynamic life history model for population dynamics of the vectors ...

Abstract

Babesiosis in Africa is usually caused by Babesia bovis and/or B. bigemina. Their distribution follows the tick vectors Boophilus microplus, B. geigyi, B. decoloratus and/or Rhipicephalus evertsi evertsi. The prevalence of clinical disease in a locality depends on transmission rates. Enzootically...

Abstract

Illustrated accounts are given of the life-cycle of Boophilus microplus and of the life-cycles and transmission of the parasites it transmits to cattle in Queensland, Australia -- Babesia bovis, B. bigemina and Anaplasma.ADDITIONAL ABSTRACT:In this article from Queensland, the life-cycles are...

Abstract

Recent advances in immunology and biotechnology have stimulated much research on the control of parasitic diseases through vaccination. This is a review of the state of the art regarding important protozoan and arthropod veterinary parasites. A live oocyst vaccine for avian coccidiosis is still in...

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

Infection with protozoan parasites may interfere with the immune response to a variety of agents including bacteria, other protozoans and helminths. Field tests in Australia showed that Babesia bovis, a pathogen of cattle, causes immunosuppression against its natural vector, Boophilus microplus...

Abstract

In 2 of 3 experiments, Boophilus microplus larvae infected with Babesia bigemina were released in a 2 to 4 g batch onto an artificially confined area (A) of a donor calf. A 2 g batch of uninfected larvae was released onto a confined area (B) on the other side of the calf. In experiment 1, the calf...

Abstract

Ticks and tick-borne infections with Anaplasma, Babesia, Theileria, Cowdria and Ehrlichia are major obstacles to the livestock industry of most countries although only the first 2 have so far been identified among ruminants in the Americas. The literature on all these diseases and their...

Abstract

Progress in research on the control of cattle ticks [Boophilus microplus (Can.)] and tick fever (caused by Babesia and transmitted by the ticks) in Queensland is reviewed. It has been shown that an increase in temperature produces a form of the pathogen that infects cattle, whereas a decrease...

Abstract

In studies in Australia, 2 strains of Babesia bovis that had been serially blood passaged in splenectomised calves 27-33 times, a procedure known to have reduced their virulence for normal cattle, were shown to have low pathogenicity for replete females of Boophilus microplus (Can.). In comparison...
