Abstract

This paper, which is concerned primarily with the diagnosis in Australia of clinical babesiosis in cattle (caused by Babesia bovis (argentina) and B. bigemina), includes a discussion of the distribution in the continent of the only vector, Boophilus microplus (Can.), which determines occurrence of...

Abstract

The diagnosis of Babesia bovis and B. bigemina infections in cattle, in Australia, is discussed in relation to the recognition of acute disease and to the epizootiology of babesiosis. The use of different serodiagnostic tests (complement fixation, indirect haemagglutination, indirect fluorescent...

Abstract

After a single experimental tick-transmitted infection with B. argentina young cattle maintained in a tick-free environment showed recurrences of parasitaernia for 11/2-2 years. With B. bigemina infection, shorter periods and fewer recurrences were observed. Young cattle retained their ability to...

Abstract

In the development of a routine c.f. test for the diagnosis of bovine babesiosis, the most sensitive antigen for B. argentina (B.a.) was a crude suspension of the parasites prepared by distilled water lysis of infected r.b.c. followed by centrifugation. For B. bigemina (B.b.), a specific, sensitive ...

Abstract

Plasma from heavily-infected calves was freeze-dried, and then reconstituted to one-third of the original volume. These concentrated materials gave two precipitin lines in gel diffusion tests with serum, which had been obtained from cattle 2-4 weeks after recovery from clinical disease due to the...

Abstract

Calves 4-8 months old were experimentally infected, by means of Boophilus microplus, with either Babesia argentlna or B. bigemina. Each week the c.f. antibody titre was determined. Of serum samples from 11 calves infected with B. argentina 95-100% contained antibody at or above minimum diagnostic...

Abstract

Antigens prepared from the blood of cattle with a heavy pure infection of either Babesia bigemina or B. argentina were used. In the sera of calves with pure infections of these organisms homologous c.f. antibodies developed 7-21 days after infection. Antibodies were detected at all stages from the...

Abstract

For epidemiological studies on bovine babesiosis a reliable and practical method of detecting Babesia bigemina and B. argentina in blood films is required. Thick blood films, specially stained, are suitable and much better than thin films. The preparation and staining of thick blood films is...
