Abstract

Bovine babesiosis is a disease that usually causes losses in the livestock sector, so it is necessary to diagnose early the haemoparasite in cattle. The aim of this study was the detection, by duplex pcr, of Babesia species that are present in cattle of the municipality of Los Palmitos in the...

Abstract

Background: Babesia bigemina and B. bovis are two economically important hemoparasites affecting both cattle and buffaloes involved in dairy and beef production. In Colombia, although some parasitological and serological studies suggest an endemicity of these pathogens in areas under 1000 m, little ...

AbstractFull Text

Background & objectives: The presence of Babesia spp. in humans, bovine cattle and ticks (the transmitting vector) has not been well characterized in Colombia. Babesia infection in humans can be overlooked due to similarity of the disease symptoms with malaria specially in the regions where malaria ...

Abstract

In Colombia, vector-borne diseases are one of the most important problems in the livestock industry. The present study reports parasitological and molecular surveys of vector-borne pathogens in cattle from two high-value livestock areas in Colombia. A total of 464 samples (226 from Antioquia and...

Abstract

In Colombia, cattle industry is the third level of economic importance after oil and agriculture exploitation systems. This economic resource is affected by hemoparasitic diseases like bovine babesiosis. Transmission of babesiosis is determined by the vector-parasitic-host relation and biotic and...

Abstract

Babesia sp. is a protozoan hemoparasite that affects livestock worldwide. The Colombian Middle Magdalena is an enzootic region for babesiosis, but there is no previous research providing detail on its transmission cycle. This study aims to assess some Babesia sp. infection indicators in cattle and...

AbstractFull Text

In Colombia all cattle raising areas located in tropical areas of low and medium altitude are considered endemic for haemoparasites of cattle, but sometimes losses are minimized by the development of immunity and the achievement of a state of equilibrium in populations. Generally, in the field the...

AbstractFull Text

Babesiosis is a cattle disease transmitted by Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus ticks and caused by protozoan parasites Babesia bovis and Babesia bigemina. An area is considered as epizootiologically stable to Babesia spp. when 75% of the cattle between the ages of 3 to 9 months are seroreactive...

Abstract

The PCV, haemoglobin, temperature, parasitaemia, IFAT and the leukocyte migration inhibition test (LMIT) were used to evaluate the efficiency of immunization against bovine babesiosis. Calves immunized with an attenuated strain of Babesia bovis developed a mild clinical disease which lasted from...
