Preparation of antibodies directed to the Babesia ovata- or Theileria sergenti-parasitized erythrocytes. (1/319)

To investigate the surface antigens of the bovine red blood cells (RBCs) parasitized by Babesia ovata or Theileria sergenti, attempts were made to produce monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) with BALB/c mice. Comparable numbers of hybridomas producing anti-piroplasm mAbs, as well as anti-bovine RBC mAbs, were obtained from the mice immunized with B. ovata- or T. sergenti-PRBCs. However, mAbs directed to the surface of parasitized RBCs (PRBCs) were obtained only from the mice immunized with B. ovata-PRBCs, but not from those immunized with T. sergenti-PRBCs. When serum samples from the immunized mice and the infected cattle were examined, antibodies recognizing B. ovata-PRBC surface were detected in the sera against B. ovata, but analogous antibodies were undetectable in the sera against T. sergenti, despite that the sera showed substantial antibody titers to T. sergenti piroplasms. The results suggest that significant antigenic modifications occur on the surface of B. ovata-PRBCs, but not on the surface of T. sergenti-PRBCs.  (+info)

Detection of enzootic babesiosis in baboons (Papio cynocephalus) and phylogenetic evidence supporting synonymy of the genera Entopolypoides and Babesia. (2/319)

Blood smear evaluation of two baboons (Papio cynocephalus) experiencing acute hemolytic crises following experimental stem cell transplantation revealed numerous intraerythrocytic organisms typical of the genus Babesia. Both animals had received whole-blood transfusions from two baboon donors, one of which was subsequently found to display rare trophozoites of Entopolypoides macaci. An investigation was then undertaken to determine the prevalence of hematozoa in baboons held in our primate colony and to determine the relationship, if any, between the involved species. Analysis of thick and thin blood films from 65 healthy baboons (23 originating from our breeding facility, 26 originating from an out-of-state breeding facility, and 16 imported from Africa) for hematozoa revealed rare E. macaci parasites in 31%, with respective prevalences of 39, 35, and 12%. Phylogenetic analysis of nuclear small-subunit rRNA gene sequences amplified from peripheral blood of a baboon chronically infected with E. macaci demonstrated this parasite to be most closely related to Babesia microti (97.9% sequence similarity); sera from infected animals did not react in indirect fluorescent-antibody tests with Babesia microti antigen, however, suggesting that they represent different species. These results support an emerging view that the genus Entopolypoides Mayer 1933 is synonymous with that of the genus Babesia Starcovici 1893 and that the morphological variation noted among intracellular forms is a function of alteration in host immune status. The presence of an underrecognized, but highly enzootic, Babesia sp. in baboons may result in substantial, unanticipated impact on research programs. The similarity of this parasite to the known human pathogen B. microti may also pose risks to humans undergoing xenotransplantation, mandating effective screening of donor animals.  (+info)

Simultaneous detection of bovine Theileria and Babesia species by reverse line blot hybridization. (3/319)

A reverse line blot (RLB) assay was developed for the identification of cattle carrying different species of Theileria and Babesia simultaneously. We included Theileria annulata, T. parva, T. mutans, T. taurotragi, and T. velifera in the assay, as well as parasites belonging to the T. sergenti-T. buffeli-T. orientalis group. The Babesia species included were Babesia bovis, B. bigemina, and B. divergens. The assay employs one set of primers for specific amplification of the rRNA gene V4 hypervariable regions of all Theileria and Babesia species. PCR products obtained from blood samples were hybridized to a membrane onto which nine species-specific oligonucleotides were covalently linked. Cross-reactions were not observed between any of the tested species. No DNA sequences from Bos taurus or other hemoparasites (Trypanosoma species, Cowdria ruminantium, Anaplasma marginale, and Ehrlichia species) were amplified. The sensitivity of the assay was determined at 0.000001% parasitemia, enabling detection of the carrier state of most parasites. Mixed DNAs from five different parasites were correctly identified. Moreover, blood samples from cattle experimentally infected with two different parasites reacted only with the corresponding species-specific oligonucleotides. Finally, RLB was used to screen blood samples collected from carrier cattle in two regions of Spain. T. annulata, T. orientalis, and B. bigemina were identified in these samples. In conclusion, the RLB is a versatile technique for simultaneous detection of all bovine tick-borne protozoan parasites. We recommend its use for integrated epidemiological monitoring of tick-borne disease, since RLB can also be used for screening ticks and can easily be expanded to include additional hemoparasite species.  (+info)

Southern extension of the range of human babesiosis in the eastern United States. (4/319)

We sought evidence of babesiosis in three residents of New Jersey who were suspected of local acquisition of Babesia microti infection. We tested serial blood samples from these residents for B. microti antibodies and amplifiable DNA by using immunofluorescent antibody and PCR techniques. All three residents experienced symptoms suggestive of acute babesiosis. The sera of each of the patients reacted against babesial antigen at a titer fourfold or higher in sequentially collected blood samples. PCR-amplifiable DNA, characteristic of B. microti, was detected in their blood. These data suggest that human B. microti infections were acquired recently in New Jersey, extending the range of this piroplasmosis in the northeastern United States.  (+info)

Detection of equine antibodies to babesia caballi by recombinant B. caballi rhoptry-associated protein 1 in a competitive-inhibition enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. (5/319)

A competitive-inhibition enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (cELISA) was developed for detection of equine antibodies specific for Babesia caballi. The assay used recombinant B. caballi rhoptry-associated protein 1 (RAP-1) and monoclonal antibody (MAb) 79/17.18.5, which is reactive with a peptide epitope of a native 60-kDa B. caballi antigen. The gene encoding the recombinant antigen was sequenced, and database analysis revealed that the gene product is a rhoptry-associated protein. Cloning and expression of a truncated copy of the gene demonstrated that MAb 79/17.18.5 reacts with the C-terminal repeat region of the protein. The cELISA was used to evaluate 302 equine serum samples previously tested for antibodies to B. caballi by a standardized complement fixation test (CFT). The results of cELISA and CFT were 73% concordant. Seventy-two of the 77 serum samples with discordant results were CFT negative and cELISA positive. Further evaluation of the serum samples with discordant results by indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA) demonstrated that at a serum dilution of 1:200, 48 of the CFT-negative and cELISA-positive serum samples contained antibodies reactive with B. caballi RAP-1. Four of five CFT-positive and cELISA-negative serum samples contained antibodies reactive with B. caballi when they were tested by IFA. These data indicate that following infection with B. caballi, horses consistently produce antibody to the RAP-1 epitope defined by MAb 79/17.18.5, and when used in the cELISA format, recombinant RAP-1 is a useful antigen for the serologic detection of anti-B. caballi antibodies.  (+info)

Isolation of a new subspecies, Bartonella vinsonii subsp. arupensis, from a cattle rancher: identity with isolates found in conjunction with Borrelia burgdorferi and Babesia microti among naturally infected mice. (6/319)

Bacteremia with fever due to a novel subspecies of Bartonella vinsonii was found in a cattle rancher. The subspecies shared major characteristics of the genus Bartonella in terms of most biochemical features and cellular fatty acid profile, but it was distinguishable from other subspecies of B. vinsonii by good growth on heart infusion agar supplemented with X factor and by its pattern of enzymatic hydrolysis of peptide substrates. DNA relatedness studies verified that the isolate belonged to the genus Bartonella and that it was genotypically related to B. vinsonii. The highest level of relatedness was observed with recently characterized strains from naturally infected mice that were coinfected with Borrelia burgdorferi and Babesia microti. We propose the name Bartonella vinsonii subsp. arupensis subsp. nov. as the new subspecies to accommodate these human and murine isolates.  (+info)

Coinfection with multiple tick-borne pathogens in a Walker Hound kennel in North Carolina. (7/319)

Both dogs and humans can be coinfected with various Ehrlichia, Bartonella, Rickettsia, and Babesia species. We investigated a kennel of sick Walker Hounds and their owners in southeastern North Carolina for evidence of tick-borne infections and associated risk factors. A high degree of coinfection was documented in the dog population. Of the 27 dogs, 26 were seroreactive to an Ehrlichia sp., 16 to Babesia canis, and 25 to Bartonella vinsonii, and 22 seroconverted to Rickettsia rickettsii antigens. According to PCR results, 15 dogs were infected with Ehrlichia canis, 9 with Ehrlichia chaffeensis, 8 with Ehrlichia ewingii, 3 with Ehrlichia equi, 9 with Ehrlichia platys, 20 with a Rickettsia species, 16 with a Bartonella species, and 7 with B. canis. The detection of DNA from any Ehrlichia species was associated with clinical illness and with concurrent B. canis infection (by PCR). Both E. canis and an uncharacterized Rickettsia species appeared to result in chronic or recurrent infection. Death in the dog population was associated with living in a dirt lot rather than the concrete kennel. Of 23 people on whom serologic testing was conducted, eight were seroreactive to Bartonella henselae, one to E. chaffeensis, and one to R. rickettsii antigen; however, none had clinical or hematologic abnormalities consistent with illness caused by these organisms. We conclude that kennel dogs with heavy tick exposure can be infected at a high rate with multiple, potentially zoonotic, tick-borne pathogens. In addition, our findings further illustrate the utility of PCR for documenting coinfection with tick-transmitted pathogens.  (+info)

Development of Babesia gibsoni in the midgut of larval tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus. (8/319)

Studies were made on the development of Babesia gibsoni in the midgut of the larval tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus. Six hr after repletion, merozoites of B. gibsoni, freed from erythrocytes, were observed in the midgut contents of the tick. After that, within 24 hr, those merozoites were transformed into the ring-forms which were relatively large, 2-3 microns in diameter. Later, the ring forms developed into the spherical forms which were subelliptical in shape and 4-6 microns in diameter. Within 2-4 days, the elongated forms, 5-8 microns in length, were found. At this time, some of the binucleated fusion form has assumed a form intermediate between the spherical and elongated-forms. About 5-6 days after repletion, large round or elliptic zygotes, 8-10 microns in diameter, were observed in the tick gut.  (+info)

Babesiosis is a globally important zoonotic disease caused by tick-borne intraerythrocytic protozoan of the genus Babesia (phylum apicomplexa). In China, there are five species that infect cattle buffalo and cause great economic loss, which include Babesia bigemina, Babesia bovis, Babesia major, Babesia ovata and Babesia orientalis . Among them, B. orientalis is the most recently identified new Babesia species epidemic in China. This review summarized the work done in the past 33 years to give an overview of what learned about this parasite. This parasitic protozoan was found in 1984 in Central and South China and then named as B. orientalis in 1997 based on its differences in transmitting host, morphology, pathogenicity and characteristics of in vitro cultivation when compared with B. bigemina and B. bovis. It was found that Rhipicephalus haemaphysaloides is the transmitting vector and water buffalo is the only reported host. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 18S rRNA gene also confirmed that B.
Babesia species are protozoan parasites that develop in the erythrocytes of vertebrate hosts and are transmitted transovarially and transstadially by Ixodid ticks. Ovine babesiosis is an important disease in the livestock with high morbidity and mortality, thereby, resulting in high economical losses worldwide. B. motasi and B. ovis are both capable of causing either acute or chronic disease with symptoms similar to those seen in cattle. B. ovis produces mild disease of short duration, whereas B. motasi causes fatal disease in acute cases. Like all Babesia organisms, sheep that recover from babesiosis become asymptomatic carriers. VetPCR Babesia sp. Detection Kit is the direct detection of Babesia sp. on the basis of a genetic database, so it can diagnose very fast and accurately. It can amplify only specific gene using the PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) method, and take only 3 hours for detection. Therefore, it is a very fast, accurate and reliable technique.
Canine babesiosis remains a major concern over large parts of South Africa [1]. The main causative organism, Babesia rossi, has only been reported from sub-Saharan Africa. The less virulent Babesia canis (sensu stricto), transmitted by Dermacentor reticulatus, is restricted to Europe, while the least virulent Babesia vogeli, transmitted by Rhipicephalus sanguineus (sensu lato), has a cosmopolitan distribution that includes sub-Saharan Africa. Female Haemaphysalis elliptica (and presumably also Haemaphysalis leachi [2]) ticks, having become infected with B. rossi when engorging on infected hosts, transmit the infection transovarially. Larvae of the next generation and nymphs remain infected while engorging primarily on small rodents; B. rossi is transmitted when next-generation adults engorge, primarily on carnivores [3, 4].. Domestic dogs have been present for centuries or even millennia in sub-Saharan Africa, but they are not native to the region [5]. Since B. rossi and its vector(s) only occur ...
Babesia spp. are protozoal organisms that parasitize erythrocytes, causing anemia in the host. B. canis and B. gibsoni are two organisms commonly known to infect dogs. Babesia canis is thought to cycle primarily between domestic dogs and Rhipicephalus sanguineus, the brown dog tick. Cases of canine babesiosis may present with a wide variation of severity of clinical signs, ranging from a hyperacute, shock-associated, hemolytic crisis to an inapparent, subclinical infection. VetPCR B.canis Detection Kit is the direct detection of Babesia canis on the basis of a genetic database, so it can detect very fast and accurately. It can amplify only specific gene using the PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) method, and take only 3 hours for detection. Therefore, it is a very fast, accurate and reliable technique.
As ticker said. Night sweats are hallmark with babesia. Bart and lyme can have night sweats too but they are slightly more pronounced with babesia. They can become severe on the 3rd or 4th day of babesia treatment. Meds such as bactrim, biaxin, doxy or plaquenil are mildly anti-babesia so they can calm many of the babs symptoms but the babesia is almost always still there. This can sometimes fool the patient or doctor. Some other symptoms to accompany babesia are depression, lack of appetite, sometimes liver pain, losing your breath just going up a short flight of stairs, skin itching on the back of neck etc. But im sure you know. Lyme and bartonella can cause some of these symptoms also, that was my reason for the treat them all regardless approach. And im still not 100% convinced that mepron/zithromax or malarone/zithromax is the answer. Very little research has been done on babesia so we dont know everything. And just because it is similar to malaria, does not mean it will behave exactly ...
To increase understanding of human bacterial and parasitic pathogens in bats, we investigated the prevalence of Babesia spp., Rickettsia spp., Anaplasma spp. and Coxiella burnetii in bats from China. Bats were captured from Mengyin County, Shandong Province of China using nets. DNA was extracted from the blood and spleen of bats for molecular detection of Babesia spp., Rickettsia spp., Anaplasma spp. and Coxiella burnetii with specific primers for each species. A total of 146 spleen samples and 107 blood samples of insectivorous bats, which belonged to 6 species within two families, were collected from Mengyin County, Shandong Province of China. We found that two Eptesicus serotinus (2/15, 13.3%) were positive for Babesia vesperuginis. We were unable to detect genomic sequences for Rickettsia spp., Anaplasma spp. and Coxiella burnetii. To our knowledge, our study showed for the first time the presence of Babesia vesperuginis in Eptesicus serotinus collected from China, suggesting that Babesia
Glycosylphosphatidylinositols (GPIs) are glycolipids described as toxins of protozoan parasites due to their inflammatory properties in mammalian hosts characterized by the production of interleukin (IL)-1, IL-12 and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α. In the present work, we studied the cytokines produced by antigen presenting cells in response to ten different GPI species extracted from Babesia divergens, responsible for babesiosis. Interestingly, B. divergens GPIs induced the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines (IL-2, IL-5) and of the regulatory cytokine IL-10 by macrophages and dendritic cells. In contrast to all protozoan GPIs studied until now, GPIs from B. divergens did not stimulate the production of TNF-α and IL-12, leading to a unique Th1/Th2 profile. Analysis of the carbohydrate composition of the B. divergens GPIs indicated that the di-mannose structure was different from the evolutionary conserved tri-mannose structure, which might explain the particular cytokine profile they ...

Equine piroplasmosis is significant tick-borne disease with wide distribution. The prevalence of equine piroplasmosis in Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina is unknown. In aim to obtain a first insight into the prevalence we performed molecular epidemiological study which included 142 horses, on seven locations in these three countries. We first performed PCR for the detection of a 450bp long section of the 18S rRNA of piroplasma-specific region. For all positive samples we have done multiplex PCR for the species detection. Species determination was further confirmed by sequencing PCR products of 10 randomly selected Theileria equi and all Babesia caballi samples. The overall prevalence rates in analysed region for T. equi and B. caballi were 22.5% and 2.1%, respectively. Possible risk factors (such as location, age, sex and activity) associated with PCR positivity were evaluated. Marked differences were found in prevalence between geographic areas. There was no significant association ...

Infection occurs when a Babesia-infected tick bites a dog and releases Babesia sporozoites into the dogs bloodstream. A tick must feed for two to three days to infect a dog with Babesia. The young Babesia organisms attach to red blood cells, eventually penetrating and making a new home within the cells for themselves. Inside the red blood cell, the Babesia organism divests its outer coating and begins to divide, becoming a new form called a merozoite that a new tick may ingest during a blood meal. Infected pregnant dogs can spread Babesia to their unborn puppies, and dogs can transmit the organism by biting another dog as well. (In fact, for Babesia gibsoni, which is primarily a pit bull terrier infection, ticks are a minor cause of infection and maternal transmission and bite wounds are the chief routes of transmission.). Having a parasite in your red blood cells does not go undetected by your immune system. Infected red blood cells are identified and destroyed thus killing the Babesia ...

The archaeological excavations of the Boston-Higginbotham House, a historic property on York Street, contributed to ongoing efforts spearheaded by the Massachusetts Museum of African American History and UMass Boston to expand public knowledge of African American history in New England. These excavations offer greater insight into the lives and labor of some of Nantucket Islands most well-known Black residents, Seneca Boston, Absalom Boston, and Florence Higginbotham, and have also illuminated the significance of Black womens labor to the support and maintenance of their homes and community. This talk will provide an overview of the key findings from the excavations of the Boston-Higginbotham House while describing the hidden labor that Black women often performed in their homes to help their families survive the economic uncertainty of the whaling industry during the nineteenth century. Ultimately, Lee posits that additional archaeological study of Black womens labor on Nantucket Island has ...

Babesia diagnosis is made through a blood sample tested using indirect fluorescent assay usually after suspect protozoa are identified in a blood smear. Babesia protozoa can look very similar to the malarial parasite Plasmodium falciparum but clinicians can distinguish the two by looking for protozoa with a variety of sizes and shapes and which lack pigment, along with having the potential to create vacuoles which the malarial parasite does not. Understanding Babesia morphology can help reduce the risk of misdiagnosis with malaria, and it is unlikely that trained physicians will mistake Babesiosis for Lyme disease although it is possible that they would simply miss diagnosing one if the symptoms of the other are more prominent ...

French strain: Distribution: north and east Mediterranean area, locally in Holland (The Hague, Arnhem), focuses in western Germany (Saarland, Rhineland-Palatinate, Baden-Wuerttemberg). What is often noticed about the French strain is its low antibody production. Hungarian strain: Distribution: Hungary, Ukraine, Romania, eastern Germany. What is often noticed about the Hungarian strain is its high antibody production. In 80% of the animals, new infections with the Hungarian strain lead to death if untreated. In this strain, it is particularly important to achieve pathogen elimination with the treatment in order to counteract further spread of this strain.. Babesia vogeli Distribution: North Africa, the whole Mediterranean area, Southern Europe, France. In Germany, 2 isolates from Dermacentor ticks were discovered in the Berlin ...

ABSTRACT. C-reactive protein (CRP) is a positive major acute-phase protein in dogs and can be used as a predictive marker for risk of disease and to monitor the response to treatment. Increased concentrations in certain diseases are associated with poor outcome. This cross-sectional, observational study of 75 dogs naturally infected with Babesia rossi was designed to examine the relationship between outcome and CRP concentration at admission and the magnitude of CRP change 24 hours after admission. Diagnosis was confirmed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and reverse line blot. CRP concentrations were determined by an automated human CRP Turbidometric Immunoassay, previously validated for use in dogs. There was no significant difference in mean CRP concentration between survivors (n = 57), 107.5 ± 49.5 mg/l and non-survivors (n = 11), 122.1 ± 64.6 mg/l at admission and using the exact logistic regression, adjusting for age and sex, there was no association with outcome (P = 0.53). Multiple ...

It has been in the news that some dogs in Essex have been infected with Babesia Canis and become very ill. This is news because these dogs had not travelled outside the UK, and Babesia had not previously been endemic in the UK, although commonly occurring in Europe.. What is Babesiosis?. Babesiosis is a tick borne disease which causes destruction of red blood cells resulting in anaemia and jaundice. Acutely affected dogs appear depressed, weak and are disinclined to eat (anorexic). They have pale membranes (e.g. lips, eye lids or tongue) and often have a fever. The passing of very dark coloured urine is also frequently noted. The disease cannot be passed directly from one animal to another. It is only spread by bites from ticks infected with the protozoan (one celled) parasite, Babesia.. Babesiosis is common in many parts of the world including large parts of Southern Europe.. What is the cause of the disease?. The disease is caused by protozoan (single celled) organisms. Babesia canis is the ...

Babesiosis is yet another common tick borne disease. It is caused by a protozoan blood infection, Babesia canis or Babesia gibsoni and carried by a variety of ticks. The protozoa break down the dogs red blood cells and create an anemic condition. The infected tick must feed on the dog for 2 to 3 days in order for the dog to become infected. Symptoms include weakness, jaundice, fever and red or orange colored urine. While the level of infection can be reduced, a dog infected with Babesia will remain a carrier and could have recurrent anemic problems for the balance of his life. By avoiding areas frequented by ticks, such as woods, fields and park areas, you can minimize the possibility of your dog becoming infected by one of the tick borne diseases. If your dog is an avid outdoor dog and joins you on hikes or hunting trips, using some sort of flea and tick prevention will also help avoid infection, although it is not foolproof. Be sure to check your dog for ticks each day or immediately after a ...

NANTUCKET, MA -The Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) is pleased to announce the return of the silent film Down to the Sea in Ships (1922), with live piano accompaniment by Grammy Award-nominated pianist Jennifer Maxwell at the Whaling Museum, 13 Broad Street, on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 at 7 P.M.. This one-night only performance will allow audiences to hear a new interpretation of the films original score, arranged by Maxwell herself. Using musical archives from the New Bedford Whaling Museum, Maxwell incorporated certain pieces that were played during the films initial release in 1922, along with original music from William Perry, who later composed another score for the film in the 1970s.. Down to the Sea in Ships is a story of forbidden love and open-water adventure. The film is set in a Quaker whaling community, where the young and eligible Patience Morgan is courted by rising businessman Samuel Siggs, despite the fact that her heart belongs to Allan Dexter, her childhood ...

Interpretive Summary: The recent finding of horses infected with Babesia (Theileria) equi within the United States has increased the need to understand the transmission risks associated with this long-term infection of horse red blood cells. This study used assays which detect antibody to the two parasites which cause babesiosis in horses, Babesia (Theileria) equi and Babesia caballi. Use of these assays in the State of Sao Paulo in Brazil defined the percentage of horses infected with either of these parasites. Also the study identified certain ticks which were associated with infection and these data help direct studies in the United States at defining which ticks are capable of transmitting one or both of the above listed ...

Ticks transmit Babesia microti, the causative agents of babesiosis in North America and Europe. Babesiosis is now endemic in Northeastern USA and affects people of all ages. Babesia species infect erythrocytes and can be transmitted through blood transfusion. Whole blood and blood products, which are not tested for Babesia, can cause transfusion-transmitted babesiosis (TTB) resulting in severe consequences in the immuno-compromised patients. The purpose of this study was epidemiological evaluation of babesiosis in a tick-infested state. We examined blood samples from 192 patients who visited clinics during the active tick-borne diseases season, using a newly developed qPCR assay that uses the specific molecular beacon probe. Due to the absence of clear symptomology, clinical laboratories did not test 131 samples by IFA, FISH or microscopic examination of Giemsa-stained blood smears. Babesia infection was detected in all age groups by FISH and microscopy; notably patients |40 years of age represented 64%
In 2005 and 2006, three adult female chamois (Rupicapra r. rupicapra) were found dead with signs of acute babesial infection in the eastern Swiss Alps. PCR on DNA extracted from blood or spleen of the carcasses revealed sequence identity of the amplified part of the 18S rRNA gene with GenBank entries attributed to Babesia divergens of cattle origin or B. capreoli of wild ruminant origin which have never been described before in this region. Examination of 424 blood samples from 314 head of cattle from this area by IFAT, microscopy and PCR provided no evidence for babesial infection. Six of 887 ticks collected from cattle were PCR-positive, and sequencing revealed Babesia sp. genotype EU1 in five and B. divergens/B. capreoli in one of them. A Babesia isolate of chamois, two isolates of roe deer from the same region and one isolate of a roe deer from the north-western Swiss Alps were genetically compared with two Swiss B. divergens isolates of cattle origin by analysing the genomic rDNA locus. ...

Babesiosis is an important tick-borne disease that occurs worldwide. It ranges from a relatively mild to a fatal disease. Although haemolytic anaemia is the hallmark of the disease, a number of variations and complications can occur. The genus Babesia was named after Victor Babes, who in 1887 established the aetiology of the cattle disease in Romania. The first report of canine babesiosis was in South Africa in 1885 by Hutcheon; however, the parasites were only recognised by Purvis and Koch, in 1896 and 1897 respectively. Feline babesiosis has been reported from France, Germany, Thailand, and Zimbabwe, but only appears to cause clinical disease in South Africa.. EPIDEMIOLOGY. Three subtypes of Babesia canis are recognised, namely: B. c. canis, B. c. vogeli, and B. c. rossi. The former 2 subtypes occur in Europe and North Africa respectively, whereas the latter subtype occurs in Southern Africa. Babesia gibsoni occurs in Asia, North America, and North-and East Africa.. Feline babesiosis is caused ...

Equine piroplasmosis is caused by the intracellular, haemoprotozoan parasites Theileria equi (formerly known as as Babesia equi, Mehlhorn and Schein, 1998) and Babesia caballi, which are transmitted by ticks of several genera including Boophilus, Hyalomma, Dermacentor and Rhipicephalus. The disease is found in many tropical and subtropical areas. Clinical manifestation of the disease is variable and often includes icterus (jaundice), haemoglobinuria and fever. Both chronic and acute infection can occur. Sub-clinical infected animals are of major concern, as they can be carriers of the organism. The geographic movement of presumably healthy horses may aid in the spread of piroplasmosis. In addition to the fact that sub-clinical piroplasmosis may negatively affect the animals performance, it has been shown that strenuous exercise, such as that experienced in horse racing, can cause sub-clinical infections to become acute (Hailat et al., 1997). Thus there is a real need for the diagnosis of both ...

Two of these pathogens belong to the Babesia genus. Babesia divergens is a bovine pathogen, while Babesia microti infects mainly rodents. Both Babesia species cause human infection by tickbite. Babesias cause haemolysis and secondary hepatic, as well as renal dysfunction in humans. Capnocytophaga canimorsus occurs normaly in the oral cavity of dogs and cats. Humans usually become infected from the pets by biting. This bacterium species can cause septicaemia, following local wound infection, as well as endocarditis and meningitis. Both babesiosis, as well as C. canimorsus infection are curable by using appropriate antibiotic treatment, but ...

Veternarians expressed grave concern when the regulations governing the import of dogs into the UK were relaxed in 2005 in compliance with EU regulations concerning the free movement of animals. Sadly it appears that their predictions have come true and this relaxation has led to the import of a tick borne disease new to the UK, along with the dogs. Coupled to this the recent mild, wet winters in Britain have led to an increase in tick populations. Vets who initially treated the infected dogs have pointed out that the thousands of eggs laid by an infected female tick will all carry the parasite so canine babesiosis could rapidly spread to other areas of the UK.. At the risk of shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted perhaps it is time to rethink the relaxation of regulations regarding the free movement of dogs between the UK and mainland Europe.. ...

The Trick: For Lyme, RMSF, and Babesia, find donors that need money. For adults, Lyme and Babesia are primarily in New England while RMSF is primarily in the Western U.S. HGE and Tularemia are lesser known and have not been needed by SeraCare so the focus of recruitment will be on RMSF, Lyme, and Babesia. Once a donor has been identified, empathize with them - they are probably in pain and tired of dealing with the testing issues. Confirm Clinical Diagnosis by getting a copy of the patient file. Service their needs - arrange travel, fill out forms for them over the phone, send driving directions, etcetera. Prequalify them by using a variety of available test methods - for Lyme, use one EIA from each of the three groups (Lyme, LymeM, and LymeC ...

Sofia Rossi is a 59 year old homemaker. One Tuesday morning at 0500 she awakes from sleep with lower abdominal cramping that she did not have when she went to bed the previous night. She takes some Tylenol and tries to return to sleep but by 0630 when her husband awakes the pain is more severe. She is brought to a walkin medical centre by her son. The physician at the walkin clinic examines her and a clinical diagnosis of diverticulitis is made. The physician also orders a CBC, creatinine and electrolytes and provides Mrs. Rossi with a prescription for a 7 day course of oral ciprofloxacin and metronidazole. Mrs. Rossi gets her blood work drawn and fills her prescription.

I washed ashore on Nantucket Island decades ago as a college student with a job scooping ice cream. Since then, Ive returned nearly every summer, often with kids in tow. I come back for the beaches, the open moorland, the gray cedar cottages, and the outdoor showers.

Casey Stoner said it would be foolish to write off Valentino Rossi as a potential title contender after just one race of the 2011 MotoGP world championship. The Australian made a dream start to his factory Honda career in Qatar last weekend as he won for the fourth time in five years at the Losail International Circuit. Rossi meanwhile was having a much tougher first outing on the new Ducati GP11 machine and the Italian could only finish in seventh position - over 16-seconds adrift. Spaniard Jorge Lorenzo won the 2010 title with an incredible run of 16 podium finishes in 18 races and his worst result was two fourth places at the Motorland Aragon and Twin Ring Motegi. But Stoner said there is no way Rossi could be dismissed as a title threat at such an early stage and he said: I think people can still win championship with one, maybe even two bad results.

This time of year always makes me happy: the tulips come out, everything blooms, and the world feels hopeful again. It also makes me nervous, because I know spring brings an influx of my worst enemy: ticks. Articles and newscasts from The Boston Globe to CBS warn that a warmer winter will make tick season especially bad this year.. But isnt the horse already out of the barn,? a friend asked me when I voiced my concern. She meant that since I already have Lyme and babesia, what would be the harm in getting a new tick bite? A lot, it turns out.. Getting a new tick bite ranks up there with relapse in terms of my worst fears. My Lyme and babesia are currently in remission, well-controlled and well-maintained by specific medication, supplements, dietary restrictions, and lifestyle limitations. A new infection could spur a relapse, and engender new symptoms that I did not experience with my initial infection. It could also re-infect me with ehrlichia, a co-infection I previously beat, or give me ...
Anyway, 12 hours later, I woke up at night feeling extremely hot and sweaty (but no fever). I have had night sweats before a few times (at least 15 or so) during the last half year, but never have I felt hot at the same time. My complete body was very hot. This lasted then for over 24 hours (was better in the morning the day after but became bad again in the next evening). Now a few days later I feel a bit hot in my forehead still and I have more fatigue/feeling slightly sick that before. But the extreme heat in the body is gone ...
