Abstract

During the 1990s, the incidence of major animal diseases declined due to effective prevention and control measures. However in recent years, animal health has returned to the spotlight with a massive increase in cases of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in Europe, as well as episodes of foot...

Abstract

An account of present knowledge of Babesia divergens infection of cattle in France, including the epidemiology, biology and infection of the vector (Ixodes ricinus), pathogenesis, clinical signs and immunity. Anaplasmosis also occurs in certain parts of France, and may be difficult to distinguish...

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

In this area, since 1965, 17 foci of piroplasmosis in cattle have been identified, and between 1970 and 1981 there were 64 severe cases with haemoglobinuria; 43 of these were aged 9 months to 3 years, but 13 were cows aged 3 to 9 years. Babesia divergens, transmitted by Ixodes ricinus, was...

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

A "presumptive" epidemiological map for bovine piroplasmosis (Babesia divergens), vector Ixodes ricinus, canine (B. canis) and equine (B. caballi) piroplasmosis (both transmitted by Dermacentor reticulatus) was made for the southern Jura, France. It is based on a study of vegetation preferred by...

Abstract

The author considers that B. divergens infection is in an unstable endemic situation in the cattle-farming regions of France, where calf premunition does not usually develop. As the many strains differ antigenically, movement of cattle brings the risk of infection with a heterologous strain and...

Abstract

In 29 naturally infected dogs, 3 mg/kg imidocarb given i/v cured the dogs causing Babesia to disappear from the blood with a single treatment. In four dogs given a similar dose preventively, then challenged experimentally, a protective effect of imidocarb lasting for six weeks was demonstrated. ...
