Abstract

Piroplasmosis or babesiosis in cattle in northern Europe is caused either by Babesia divergens, which is transmitted by the tick Ixodes ricinus, or B. major, which is transmitted by the tick Haemaphysalis punctata. B. divergens is responsible for clinical cases which are characterized by fever,...

Abstract

About 100 cases (invariably in immunodepressed individuals) of human babesiosis have been recorded in Europe, since the first report of this disease in man in 1957. The territorial range coincides with that of bovine babesiosis caused by Babesia divergens, for which cattle are the reservoir hosts...

Abstract

Babesiosis, caused by Babesia divergens, is common in cattle in the Clos-du-Doubs area of the Jura, Switzerland. Tick infestation of 3 heifers and tick infection with Babesia were observed throughout the grazing season (25 weeks) on a farm there in 1982. Less than 100 examples of Ixodes ricinus and ...

Abstract

Studies on the epizootiology of bovine babesiosis in an endemic area (Charollais) of France, involving examination of I. ricinus population dynamics in relation to cases of babesiosis, are described. On the basis of this study, prophylactic measures (sanitary and medical) were assessed. The results ...

Abstract

During 1983, the Institute continued the study of trypanosomiasis and its vectors in Burkina Faso, including Glossina breeding programmes carried out in France and at Bobo-Dioulasso. Field trials were carried out, at Sidéradougou, of fly traps impregnated with deltamethrin and of the release of...

Abstract

An ill-defined syndrome, involving a decline in milk yield, that occurs in cattle in the Rhone plain in Switzerland, principally in spring and autumn, and of which the cause was formerly not recognised, is shown to be due to infection with Babesia bovis transmitted by Ixodes ricinus (L.). This tick ...

Abstract

The transmission of B. bigemina and B. argentina was studied; it was confirmed that the tick Boophilus microplus is the natural vector in Madagascar. Experiments on transmission of Anaplasma margínale by B. microplus larvae gave only negative results, although epidemiological data indicated this...

Abstract

In the low plain of the Rhone in Switzerland, the incidence of bovine piroplasmosis (caused by species of Babesia) is fairly frequent, with peaks in spring or early summer and in autumn. Cases are localised, especially in the region of the St. Maurice Gorge. The occurrence of the disease coincides...

Abstract

There are two babesia of cattle: B. bigemina, and B. argentina (previously called B. bovis or Babesiella berbera). They are pathogenic, but clinical cases are rare in zebu cattle provided that their ticks are not removed. Young calves, even those of imported breeds, are also resistant. Most adult ...
