Roles of the Maltese cross form in the development of parasitemia and protection against Babesia microti infection in mice. (1/65)

Babesia microti, a hemoprotozoan parasite of rodents, is also important as a zoonotic agent of human babesiosis. The Maltese cross form, which consists of four masses in an erythrocyte, is characteristic of the developmental stage of B. microti. Monoclonal antibody (MAb) 2-1E, which specifically recognizes the Maltese cross form of B. microti, has been described previously. In the present study, we examined the roles of the Maltese cross form during the infectious course of B. microti in mice. The number of the Maltese cross form increased in the peripheral blood of infected mice prior to the peak of parasitemia. With confocal laser scanning microscopy, MAb 2-1E was found to be reactive with the ring form, with the parasites undergoing transformation to the Maltese cross form and subsequent division, and also with extracellular merozoites. Furthermore, the Maltese cross form-related antigen (MRA) gene was isolated from a B. microti cDNA library by immunoscreening with MAb 2-1E, and the nucleotide sequence was determined. Genomic analyses indicated that the MRA gene exists as a single-copy gene in B. microti. Immunization of mice with recombinant MRA induced significant protective immunity against B. microti infection. These findings indicate that the Maltese cross form plays important roles in both the development of parasitemia and the protective response against the infection.  (+info)

The prevalence of piroplasms in a population of Ixodes ricinus (Acari: Ixodidae) from north-western Poland. (2/65)

Developmental forms of Babesia spp. were studied in isolated salivary glands of Ixodes ricinus, subjected to the Feulgen reaction. The same ticks were also hosts to Babesia microti, which was determined by PCR amplification with primers specific to the fragment of a gene encoding the nuclear small sub-unit ribosomal RNA (SS-rDNA). Presence of Babesia spp. was recorded in the salivary glands of 59.9% of ticks collected, both in nymphs and adults. PCR reactions specific to Babesia microti were positive in 1.9% of nymphs.  (+info)

Transfusion-associated babesiosis after heart transplant. (3/65)

We describe a 54-year-old spleen-intact man with transfusion-associated Babesia microti infection after a heart transplant. Adult respiratory distress syndrome developed in the patient, and he required mechanical ventilation. Our experiences with this patient suggest that babesiosis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of transplant patients who have fever and hemolytic anemia.  (+info)

Identification and characterization of putative secreted antigens from Babesia microti. (4/65)

The need for improved diagnostic reagents to identify human long-term carriers of the zoonotic parasite Babesia microti is evidenced by numerous reported cases of transfusion-acquired infections. This report describes the identification and initial characterization of 27 clones representing seven genes or gene families that were isolated through serological expression cloning by using a technique that we specifically designed to screen for shed antigens. In this screen, sera from B. microti-infected SCID mice, putatively containing secreted or shed antigens from the parasites, were harvested and used to immunize syngeneic immunocompetent mice (BALB/c). After boosting, the sera from the BALB/c mice, containing antibodies against the immunodominant secreted antigens, were used to screen a B. microti genomic expression library. Analyses of the putative peptides encoded by the novel DNA sequences revealed characteristics indicating that these peptides might be secreted. Initial serological data obtained with recombinant proteins and a patient serum panel demonstrated that several of the proteins could be useful in developing diagnostic tests for detection of B. microti antibodies and antigens in serum.  (+info)

Increasing health burden of human babesiosis in endemic sites. (5/65)

Human infection due to Babesia microti has been regarded as infrequent and a condition primarily affecting the elderly or immunocompromised. To determine whether risk in endemic sites may be increasing relative to that of Borrelia burgdorferi and to define its age-related clinical spectrum, we carried out a 10-year community-based serosurvey and case finding study on Block Island, Rhode Island. Less intensive observations were conducted in nearby sites. Incidence of babesial infection on Block Island increased during the early 1990s, reaching a level about three-fourths that of borrelial infection. The sera of approximately one-tenth of Block Island residents reacted against babesial antigen, a seroprevalence similar to those on Prudence Island and in southeastern Connecticut. Although the number and duration of babesial symptoms in people older than 50 years of age approximated those in people 20 to 49 years of age, more older adults were admitted to hospital than younger adults. Few Babesia-infected children were hospitalized. Babesial incidence at endemic sites in southern New England appears to have risen during the 1990s to a level approaching that due to borreliosis.  (+info)

Age-associated decline in resistance to Babesia microti is genetically determined. (6/65)

BACKGROUND: Although infection by the protozoan Babesia microti is rarely symptomatic in immunocompetent young people, healthy individuals aged >50 years may experience life-threatening disease. To determine the basis for this age relationship, we developed a mouse model of babesiosis using a novel clinical isolate of B. microti. METHODS: Mice were infected at 2, 6, 12, or 18 months. Parasitemia was monitored on Giemsa-stained blood smears or by flow cytometry. RESULTS: In DBA/2 mice, early and persistent parasitemias increased with age at infection. BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice were resistant, regardless of age, which indicates that allelic variation determines resistance to B. microti. Unlike immunocompetent mice, SCID mice, which retain an innate immune system but lack the lymphocytes needed for adaptive immunity, developed high and persistent levels of parasitemia that were markedly reduced by transfer of naive BALB/c or DBA/2 splenocytes. BALB/c cells reduced the persistent parasitemia to a greater extent than did age-matched DBA/2 cells. Of importance, there was an age-associated loss of protection by cells of both strains. CONCLUSION: The resistance to B. microti infection conferred by the adaptive immune system is genetically determined and associated with age. We postulate that there are age-related differences in the expression of alleles critical for adaptive immunity to B. microti.  (+info)

Survey of rodents and ticks in human babesiosis emergence area in Japan: first detection of Babesia microti-like parasites in Ixodes ovatus. (7/65)

Babesia microti-like parasites were detected for the first time in Ixodes ovatus in Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, where two reported types of B. microti-like parasites were recognized in many rodents. Of 80 adult I. ovatus ticks collected, 5 possessed the reported type and 1 possessed a new type of B. microti-like parasite.  (+info)

Prevalence of Borrelia burgdorferi, Bartonella spp., Babesia microti, and Anaplasma phagocytophila in Ixodes scapularis ticks collected in Northern New Jersey. (8/65)

PCR analysis of Ixodes scapularis ticks collected in New Jersey identified infections with Borrelia burgdorferi (33.6%), Babesia microti (8.4%), Anaplasma phagocytophila (1.9%), and Bartonella spp. (34.5%). The I. scapularis tick is a potential pathogen vector that can cause coinfection and contribute to the variety of clinical responses noted in some tick-borne disease patients.  (+info)

Abstract To learn more about the course of Babesia microti infections in primates, six Macaca mulatta monkeys with blood-induced B. microti infections were followed for 270 days with regular thick blood smears. Three of the monkeys experienced from 1-3 recurrences of parasitemia defined here as ⩾200 organisms/mm3 blood. Following splenectomy on day 297, parasitemia recurred in all animals, reaching levels of 1.9 × 105 to 2.7 × 106 organisms/mm3, and was associated with a moderately severe hemolytic anemia. These findings suggest that similar recurrences of parasitemia may occur in human cases, and that splenectomy may present a risk to persons with a past history of B. microti infection.

Abstract The nature of resistance to a primary infection with Babesia microti (Peabody strain) was studied in lethally irradiated, bone marrow- and/or thymocyte-reconstituted BALB/c mice. Mice depleted of T lymphocytes by thymectomy, lethal irradiation, and reconstitution with anti-theta serum-treated bone marrow cells developed significantly higher parasitemias than sham-thymectomized, lethally irradiated mice reconstituted with thymocytes alone. Natural resistance to B. microti could be partially restored to T lymphocyte-depleted mice by transfer of spleen cells depleted of B lymphocytes by treatment with anti-immunoglobulin serum. The greatest resistance to infection among lethally irradiated mice, however, was observed when T lymphocytes were given to mice with intact thymuses. The return of the spleen to normal size after enlargement resulting from infection with B. microti was shown to be a T cell-mediated response. Twenty days after peak parasitemia, the total cell and leucocyte numbers in the

Data presented by Herwaldt and colleagues also suggest that the number and frequency of transfusion-associated babesiosis cases are rapidly increasing. Whereas only 7 (4%) cases were reported during the initial 11 years (1979 to 1989) of study, 122 (77%) cases occurred from 2000 to 2009. This precipitous increase is corroborated by recently published reports from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Rhode Island Blood Center, American Red Cross, and the New York City Department of Mental Health and Hygiene (7-10). The observed increase in cases raises the question of whether the parasites endemic range is expanding, if prospective donors are becoming infected more frequently, or if physicians and hospitals are more attuned to potential Babesia infections in blood recipients. As with many questions regarding emerging infectious agents, this is difficult to answer, but the explanation is probably multifactorial. Studies to define the geographic spread of the parasite are limited but should ...
Theileria microti is a parasitic blood-borne piroplasm transmitted by deer ticks. T. microti is responsible for the disease human theileriosis, similar to babesiosis, a malaria-like disease which also causes fever and hemolysis. T. microti lives in red blood cells, and is an important transfusion-transmitted infectious organism. Between 2010 and 2014 it caused four out of fifteen (27%) of transfusion-transmitted microbial infections[where?] (the highest of any single organism). An important difference from malaria is that T. microti does not infect liver cells. Additionally, the piroplasm is spread by tick bites (Ixodes scapularis, the same tick that spreads Lyme disease), while the malaria protozoans are spread via mosquito. Finally, under the microscope, the merozoite form of the T. microti lifecycle in red blood cells forms a cross-shaped structure, often referred to as a "Maltese cross", whereas malaria forms more of a diamond ring structure in red blood cells. Until 2006 T. microti was ...
A serologic test can be used as an adjunct in the diagnosis of babesiosis or in seroepidemiologic surveys of the prevalence of the infection in certain populations. Babesiosis is usually diagnosed by observing the organisms in infected RBCs on Giemsa-stained thin blood films of smeared peripheral blood.. Serology may be useful if the parasitemia is too low to detect or if the infection has cleared naturally or following treatment.. Serology may also be useful in the follow-up of documented cases of babesiosis or if chronic or persistent infection is suspected.. ...
Here in Ohio, spring is in full swing.

Move over, Lyme disease: Another tick-borne illness is on the rise in various parts of the country, and this one can kill.. Known as babesiosis, the disease is caused by a microscopic parasite that attacks blood cells, causing flu-like symptoms that can make it difficult to accurately diagnose. Like Lyme disease, which is caused by bacteria, babesia microti parasites are carried by deer ticks.. First documented in Massachusetts in 1969, the once-obscure babesiosis has surfaced as a significant public health threat in parts of the Northeast and Upper Midwest over the last several years. A recent study in the journal Emerging Infectious Diseases, published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, revealed that between 2001 and 2008 cases climbed from six to 119 in New Yorks Lower Hudson Valley - a 20-fold regional increase..

These results indicate that it may not be as easy to eradicate dangerous viruses as had been assumed. For eliminating an infectious agent perma¬nently from the population by means of vaccination requires that there are no animal hosts from which a new infection might come. "In bats, we assume that there is a vast reservoir of such agents," said Drosten. "If the vaccination campaigns are stopped once a virus has been eradicated, this might present a potential risk - maybe we will have to rethink." This is why Drosten advocates taking into account ecological data when planning vaccination campaigns. Eradicating bats or other wild animals would be neither possible nor sensible. "Bats and other small wild mammals are of immeasurable value for our planets ecosystems," Drosten summarized his and his colleagues unanimous opinion ...

To evaluate the course of parasitemia and the associated lesions, mice were inoculated intraperitoneally with either WA1-infected, B. microti-infected, or uninfected hamster red blood cells. WA1-infected mice developed dyspnea and moderate parasitemias, after which death occurred. Babesia microti-infected mice experienced low parasitemias with no apparent morbidity or mortality. WA1-infected mice were thrombocytopenic but not anemic. Hemograms for B. microti-infected mice were similar to controls. Postmortem examination of WA1-infected mice revealed ...
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 ...
Two strains of Gram-positive cocci were isolated from viscera of common voles (Microtus arvalis Pallas) with generalized Brucella microti infection in the Czech Republic. Biochemical features and phylogenetic analysis based on 16S rRNA gene sequences showed that the strains are representatives of the genus Staphylococcus and assigned Staphylococcus muscae as the nearest relative. A detailed characterization done by ribotyping, rpoB and hsp60 gene sequencing, whole-cell protein analysis and rep-PCR using the (GTG)5 primer differentiated the two strains from all described staphylococci. DNA-DNA hybridization with the type strain of S. muscae demonstrated that the two strains should be considered as members of a novel species (26.8 % reassociation). The two analysed strains were found to be coagulase-negative, novobiocin-susceptible, oxidase-negative cultures, phenotypically close to one another, but showing differences in ribotype profiles. The major fatty acids were iso-C15 : 0, iso-C17 : 0, anteiso-C15

Just as there are people who are rare in the world of human beings, there are dogs that stand out in the dog world because of something unusual about them. Basenji Did you know there is a dog who cannot bark? He is called a Basenji. No one knows why he does not bark like other dogs, but this fellow gives sharp little cries that sound like a Swiss yodel. Because he did not bark to frighten the game away, and because be had such a very keen sense of smell that he could scent as far as eighty yards, he was used long ago in Africa to hunt rats, to retrieve, and to drive small wild game into nets.
... is a warm-season, annual, herbaceous legume. Plant types are often categorized as erect, semi-erect, prostrate (trailing), or climbing. There is much variability within the species. Growth habit ranges from indeterminate to fairly determinate with the non-vining types tending to be more determinate. Cowpea generally is strongly taprooted. Root depth has been measured at 95 in. 8 weeks after seeding.. Cowpea seed ranges in size from the very small wild types up to nearly 2 in. long and the number of seeds per pounds range from 1600 to 4300. Seed shape is a major characteristic correlated with seed development in the pod. Seeds develop a kidney shape if not restricted within the pod. When seed growth is restricted by the pod the seed becomes progressively more globular.. The seed coat can be either smooth or wrinkled and of various colors including white, cream, green, buff, red, brown, and black. Seed may also be speckled, mottled, or blotchy. Many are also referred to as eyed (blackeye, ...

How or if 34-year-old Kobe Bryant returns from his torn Achilles is unpredictable; history shows some stars who have taken different routes back from the injury, which is relatively rare among NBA players.
It appears a no-brainer that Bryant remains the Lakers focal point after cementing an 18-year career that has spanned five NBA championships and a fourth place standing on the leagues all-time scoring list. But Bryant, who has two years left on his $48.5 million contract, will turn 36 in August and faces plenty of uncertainty surrounding his health. He missed the first 19 games last season while healing his left Achilles tendon. Bryant played in six games before suffering a season-ending left knee fracture. Bryant scoffed at Mike DAntonis fast-paced system, preferring a more methodical offense that featured him more in the post. Kupchak conceded as much when he analyzed what the best way to use Bryant will entail. "Hes become most effective where you see a lot of him posting up," Kupchak said. "I think you will see the ball in his hands making plays. At the end of games, hes going to have the ball in his hands. Hes going to get a call and hes going to make free throws. The Kobe today is ...

James Harden, he had just come off of Sixth Man of the Year and you seen that he was ready to take the next step, and he sat the bench. He didnt complain, he didnt mope around, he was like, All right, were gonna get this gold medal, cause at the end nobody gonna care who was the leading scorer on this team. Anthony Davis was there. He was a rookie, he soaked up everything, and look at him now. We had Kobe Bryant, who went games without shooting the ball. [Andre] Iguodala came off the bench, Tyson Chandler -- we had so many great players and we played against some good teams. We had some close games, but nobody cared who took the shots, nobody cared who was the leader. Everybody had a voice. It was like, If we get this gold medal, then who cares? ...

Babesiosis is an emerging zoonotic disease caused primarily by Babesia microti, an intraerythocytic protozoan. Babesia microti, like the causal agents for Lyme disease and anaplasmosis, is endemic to the northeastern and upper midwestern United States where it is usually transmitted by the blacklegged tick, Ixodes scapularis. Although babesiosis is usually a mild to moderate illness, older or immunocompromised persons can develop a serious malaria-like illness that can be fatal without prompt treatment. The most common initial clinical signs and symptoms of babesiosis (fever, fatigue, chills, and diaphoresis) are nonspecific and present diagnostic challenges that can contribute to delays in diagnosis and effective treatment with atovaquone and azithromycin (1). Results of one study revealed a mean delay of 12-14 days from symptom onset to treatment (2). Knowledge of the incidence and geographic distribution of babesiosis can raise the index of clinical suspicion and facilitate more prompt ...

Concerning the question on whether Babesia screening will be routine for blood donations, Dr Stramer said, "Screening is feasible, these tests are before the FDA awaiting licensure, and yes I believe once licensed, FDA will require screening in certain portions of the United States where Babesia is common.". LISTEN to the interview below:. ...
In the United States, most reported cases of babesiosis have been caused by Babesia microti and acquired in the northeast. Although three cases of babesiosis acquired in New Jersey were recently described by others, babesiosis has not been widely known to be endemic in New Jersey. We describe a case of babesiosis acquired in New Jersey in 1999 in an otherwise healthy 53-year-old woman who developed life-threatening disease. We also provide composite data on 40 cases of babesiosis acquired from 1993 through 2001 in New Jersey. The 40 cases include the one we describe, the three cases previously described, and 36 other cases reported to public health agencies. The 40 cases were acquired in eight (38.1%) of the 21 counties in the state. Babesiosis, a potentially serious zoonosis, is endemic in New Jersey and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with fever and hemolytic anemia, particularly in the spring, summer, and early fall ...

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.
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 ...

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 ...

In the summer of 2011, José de la Luz Maldonado, a 22-year-old resident of the San José Rio Verde neighborhood of Guadalajara was out picking guavas with his friends in a small wild grove of fruit trees near his home. From the corner of his eye he saw a sparkle between two branches. José went closer to the source of light and saw what appeared to be a small being. He grabbed it and took it back to his house. By the time he arrived home the small creature had apparently died and was also missing a foot. He put it in a jar full of water and formaldehyde to preserve it. José showed it to his friends and in a few days, people from all around the neighborhood began showing up at his door to see what he had dubbed his "hada madrina" or "fairy godmother." Lines began to form outside his door and soon a carnival atmosphere developed, with people selling food like churros and gorditas, and trinkets to those waiting outside. José began to charge admission, a few pesos per person to be given as a ...

I thought of my dogs, Kobe, the incredibly high strung Pomeranian who appeared in my back yard two-and-half years ago, and Max, the wonderful mutt-from-the-pound who hated closed spaces and died of cancer last year. I told what few pet stories I had: Id brought Max to my office once on a weekend. He panicked in the elevator (we left by the stairs). He couldnt even sleep in a bedroom with us, he scratched at closed doors. No therapy for Max. And Kobe doesnt sit still and would be an amazing distraction. Kobe, sad to say, is all about Kobe.

To assess the potential risk for other tick-borne diseases, we collected 100 adult Ixodes scapularis in Hunterdon County, a rapidly developing rural county in Lyme disease endemic western New Jersey. We tested the ticks by polymerase chain reaction for Borrelia burgdorferi, Babesia microti, and the rickettsial agent of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (HGE). Fifty-five ticks were infected with at least one of the three pathogens: 43 with B. burgdorferi, five with B. microti, and 17 with the HGE agent. Ten ticks were coinfected with two of the pathogens. The results suggest that county residents are at considerable risk for infection by a tick-borne pathogen after an I. scapularis bite ...

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.

His words in talking about the incident in hindsight showcased an outstanding example for young men and male youth (of any sexuality) across the nation on what "real manhood" sounds like and looks like when addressing a perceived misstep in any given situation ...

After his stellar 20 year career with the Los Angeles Lakers, its only fair that we check out Kobe Bryants height, weight and body measurements
The Lakers Kobe Bryant passed Basketball Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain on the NBAs career scoring list on Saturday night to move into fourth place.
Kobe Bryant authored some of his most memorable moments at Madison Square Garden and made himself a centerpiece of the Lakers-Celtics rivalry. Bryant was remembered for that and so much more Sunday after the five-time NBA champion, his teenage daughter and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash
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.

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
Babesia canis is an apicomplexan tick-transmitted hemoprotozoan responsible for causing canine babesiosis in Europe and west Asia. Despite its importance, there is no known rapid diagnostic kit detection of B. canis infection in dogs. The present study identified two novel antigens of B. canis and used the recombinant antigens to establish a rapid, specific and sensitive serodiagnostic technique for detection of B. canis infection. A complementary DNA (cDNA) expression library was constructed from the mRNA of B. canis and immunoscreened using B. canis-infected dog sera. The cDNAs encoding a merozoite surface antigen and a secreted antigen protein were identified and designated as BcMSA1 and BcSA1, respectively. The recombinant BcMSA1 and BcSA1 (rBcMSA1 and rBcSA1) expressed in Escherichia coli were purified and injected into mice for production of anti-sera. The native proteins were characterized by Western blot analysis and immunofluorescence. Furthermore, indirect enzyme
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.. ...
