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

A review is given of attempts to produce protection against babesial infection by means of antigens derived from infected blood. So far it has been difficult to identify or isolate the antigens involved.

Abstract

The morphology and life-cycle, classification, host-parasite relationships, diagnosis, epizootiology and chemotherapy of babesiasis are reviewed with 9 pages of references. Clinical and sub-clinical infections and their role in the development of immunity are discussed.

Abstract

Models of the epidemiology of babesiasis were tested over a 5-year period in 4 breeding cattle herds under different regimes of tick control. It was concluded that in south-eastern Queensland, any form of tick control would exacerbate the situation, and that herds under conditions of reduced tick...
