Abstract

The presence of protective antibodies to Babesia bovis has been demonstrated by the passive transfer of immunity with serum from carriers to highly susceptible splenectomized calves. The effector mechanism was mediated by antibodies which reacted with the parasitized erythrocytes and emerging...

Abstract

The role of antibodies in protection against B. bovis infection in cattle is reviewed and it is shown that they are an important effector mechanism. The use of protective antigens for vaccine production is also discussed and it is concluded that prospects are good provided techniques for obtaining...

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...

Abstract

Splenectomized calves and intact cattle were immunized with virulent B. bovis exposed to various levels of irradiation, or with dead lyophilized material. The greatest degree of protection against virulent heterologous challenge was obtained with parasites exposed to 35 krad: this dose reduced the...

Abstract

In order to verify a predictive model developed in 1972 for Babesia bovis infection in Bos taurus cattle, the transmission of Babesia bovis was monitored in breeding herds under management systems that resulted in various levels of tick infestation. It was found that the prediction of 20...

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 optimum gel filtration fraction from lysate of B. bovis infected erythrocytes was determined for use as an antigen in an ELISA to diagnose B. bovis infection in cattle. Of 4 enzyme labels tested, horseradish peroxidase was the most suitable. The assay is both sensitive and specific in detecting ...
