Babesiosis: A group of tick-borne diseases of mammals including ZOONOSES in humans. They are caused by protozoa of the genus BABESIA, which parasitize erythrocytes, producing hemolysis. In the U.S., the organism's natural host is mice and transmission is by the deer tick IXODES SCAPULARIS.Babesia: A genus of tick-borne protozoan parasites that infests the red blood cells of mammals, including humans. There are many recognized species, and the distribution is world-wide.Babesia microti: A species of protozoa infecting humans via the intermediate tick vector IXODES scapularis. The other hosts are the mouse PEROMYSCUS leucopus and meadow vole MICROTUS pennsylvanicus, which are fed on by the tick. Other primates can be experimentally infected with Babesia microti.Imidocarb: One of ANTIPROTOZOAL AGENTS used especially against BABESIA in livestock. Toxicity has been reported.Tick-Borne Diseases: Bacterial, viral, or parasitic diseases transmitted to humans and animals by the bite of infected ticks. The families Ixodidae and Argasidae contain many bloodsucking species that are important pests of man and domestic birds and mammals and probably exceed all other arthropods in the number and variety of disease agents they transmit. Many of the tick-borne diseases are zoonotic.Babesia bovis: A species of protozoa that is a cause of bovine babesiosis. Ticks of the genera Boophilus, Rhipicephalus, and IXODES are the chief vectors.Arachnid Vectors: Members of the class Arachnida, especially SPIDERS; SCORPIONS; MITES; and TICKS; which transmit infective organisms from one host to another or from an inanimate reservoir to an animate host.Ticks: Blood-sucking acarid parasites of the order Ixodida comprising two families: the softbacked ticks (ARGASIDAE) and hardbacked ticks (IXODIDAE). Ticks are larger than their relatives, the MITES. They penetrate the skin of their host by means of highly specialized, hooked mouth parts and feed on its blood. Ticks attack all groups of terrestrial vertebrates. In humans they are responsible for many TICK-BORNE DISEASES, including the transmission of ROCKY MOUNTAIN SPOTTED FEVER; TULAREMIA; BABESIOSIS; AFRICAN SWINE FEVER; and RELAPSING FEVER. (From Barnes, Invertebrate Zoology, 5th ed, pp543-44)Tick Infestations: Infestations with soft-bodied (Argasidae) or hard-bodied (Ixodidae) ticks.Dog Diseases: Diseases of the domestic dog (Canis familiaris).

The disease was formerly known as Lyme arthritis and first discovered at Old Lyme, Connecticut.Quinine: An alkaloid derived from the bark of the cinchona tree. It is used as an antimalarial drug, and is the active ingredient in extracts of the cinchona that have been used for that purpose since before 1633. Quinine is also a mild antipyretic and analgesic and has been used in common cold preparations for that purpose. It was used commonly and as a bitter and flavoring agent, and is still useful for the treatment of babesiosis. Quinine is also useful in some muscular disorders, especially nocturnal leg cramps and myotonia congenita, because of its direct effects on muscle membrane and sodium channels. The mechanisms of its antimalarial effects are not well understood.Anaplasmosis: A disease of cattle caused by parasitization of the red blood cells by bacteria of the genus ANAPLASMA.Muridae: A family of the order Rodentia containing 250 genera including the two genera Mus (MICE) and Rattus (RATS), from which the laboratory inbred strains are developed.

Preparation of antibodies directed to the Babesia ovata- or Theileria sergenti-parasitized erythrocytes. (1/385)

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. (2/385)

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. (3/385)

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. (4/385)

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. (5/385)

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)

Roles of CD4(+) T cells and gamma interferon in protective immunity against Babesia microti infection in mice. (6/385)

Babesia microti produces a self-limiting infection in mice, and recovered mice are resistant to reinfection. In the present study, the role of T cells in protective immunity against challenge infection was examined. BALB/c mice which recovered from primary infection showed strong protective immunity against challenge infection. In contrast, nude mice which failed to control the primary infection and were cured with an antibabesial drug did not show protection against challenge infection. Treatment of immune mice with anti-CD4 monoclonal antibody (MAb) diminished the protective immunity against challenge infection, but treatment with anti-CD8 MAb had no effect on the protection. Transfer of CD4(+) T-cell-depleted spleen cells resulted in higher parasitemia than transfer of CD8(+) T-cell-depleted spleen cells. A high level of gamma interferon (IFN-gamma), which was produced by CD4(+) T cells, was observed for the culture supernatant of spleen cells from immune mice, and treatment of immune mice with anti-IFN-gamma MAb partially reduced the protection. Moreover, no protection against challenge infection was found in IFN-gamma-deficient mice. On the other hand, treatment of immune mice with MAbs against interleukin-2 (IL-2), IL-4, or tumor necrosis factor alpha did not affect protective immunity. These results suggest essential requirements for CD4(+) T cells and IFN-gamma in protective immunity against challenge infection with B. microti.  (+info)

Infection with agents of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis, lyme disease, and babesiosis in wild white-footed mice (Peromyscus leucopus) in Connecticut. (7/385)

White-footed mice, Peromyscus leucopus, were captured in southern Connecticut during 1997 and 1998 to determine the prevalence of infections caused by granulocytic Ehrlichia sp., Borrelia burgdorferi, and Babesia microti. Of the 50 mice captured and recaptured, 25 of 47 (53.2%) and 23 of 48 (47.9%) contained antibodies to the BDS or NCH-1 Ehrlichia strains, respectively, as determined by indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) staining methods. The majority (83.3%) of 48 mice also contained antibodies to B. burgdorferi, as determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Moreover, 20 of 26 (76.9%) contained antibodies to B. microti by IFA staining methods. In nested PCR tests using the 16S rRNA gene, the DNA of the human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (HGE) agent was detected in 17 of 47 mice (36.2%), but only 4 (23.5%) of these 17 mice were PCR positive at each capture. Antibody-positive reactions to granulocytic Ehrlichia sp. organisms were detected in 17 of 23 (73. 9%) of the PCR-positive mice. The sequences from PCR products from nine positive blood samples were identical to the HGE agent. Ehrlichia spp. were cultured from three of five mice captured in April 1998, including one that was PCR positive in April 1997. In addition, 2 of 14 larval Ixodes scapularis pools, which were attached to two PCR-positive mice, contained DNA of the HGE agent. A high percentage of white-footed mice are infected or have been infected naturally by the HGE agent with low-level persistent infection or frequent reinfection in some individual mice. However, the changes noted in the presence of DNA and antibodies in repeated blood and serum samples from individual mice over several months of field collection suggests that infection with granulocytic Ehrlichia is transient in most wild P. leucopus.  (+info)

Cloning and expression of a 48-kilodalton Babesia caballi merozoite rhoptry protein and potential use of the recombinant antigen in an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. (8/385)

A cDNA expression library prepared from Babesia caballi merozoite mRNA was screened with a monoclonal antibody BC11D against the rhoptry protein of B. caballi merozoite. A cDNA encoding a 48-kDa protein of B. caballi was cloned and designated BC48. The complete nucleotide sequence of the BC48 gene had 1,828 bp and was shown to contain no intron. Southern blotting analysis indicated that the BC48 gene contained more than two copies in the B. caballi genome. Computer analysis suggested that this sequence contained an open reading frame of 1,374 bp with a coding capacity of approximately 52 kDa. The recombinant protein expressed by the vaccinia virus vector in horse cells had an apparent molecular mass of 48 kDa, which was the same as that of the native B. caballi 48-kDa protein. Moreover, recombinant proteins expressed by the pGEX4T expression vector in Escherichia coli as glutathione S-transferase fusion proteins were used for antigen in an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The ELISA was able to differentiate very clearly between B. caballi-infected horse sera and B. equi-infected horse sera or noninfected normal horse sera. These results suggest that this simple and highly sensitive test might be applicable to the detection of B. caballi-infected horses in the field.  (+info)

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 ...
DDC classification: 2367-T Dissertation note: Babesiosis which is also called as piroplasmosisis, Texas fever, redwater or tick fever, is an emerging, tick-transmitted (by a vector ixodidea) disease caused by intraerythrocytic parasites of the genus babesia having considerable worldwide economic, medical, and veterinary impact. Keeping in view the importance of babesiosis under local conditions, the present study was designed to evaluate the status babesiosis in Balochistan. For this purpose field and experimental studies were carried in two districts Quetta and Sibi of Balochistan Province to find out the status of babesiosis in Bhag Nari, Holstein Friesian and Crossbred cattle. During field study epidemiological status of babesiosis was highlighted by selecting 600 cattle randomly from each district. The animals were distributed into 2 major groups i.e. Young animals less than 12 months and adult over 12 months of age. These groups were further sub-divided into Young animals (less than 6 ...
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 ...

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.. ...

Your veterinarian will want to monitor your dogs progress, and will schedule regular follow-up appointments to repeat blood chemical profiles, complete blood counts, urinalyses and electrolyte panels. Two to three consecutive negative PCR tests beginning two months post-treatment should be performed to rule out treatment failure and persistent parasitemia.. In addition, when one dog housed in a multi-dog kennel is diagnosed with babesiosis, all of the dogs in that kennel will need to be screened since there is a high percentage of carrier animals in kennel situations.. If your dog is spending time in an area that is a known tick habitat, prevention is the best course of action. Check your dog daily for the presence of ticks and remove them promptly.

07/31/2001]. Described by some medical specialists as the "neglected brother of Lyme disease," babesiosis is another tick-borne disease that can be fatal if left untreated. It is a sometimes fatal malaria-like infection from the parasites found on ticks and exhibits symptoms similar to Lyme disease. The peak of summer is usually the best time for the proliferation of babesiosis as people spend more time outdoors. The heaviest hit state in the United States is Massachusetts, which has reported over 200 cases during the last 10 years, mostly in Nantucket. Officials believe this statistic is lower than actual numbers of cases because the nature of the illness makes it sometimes indistinguishable from influenza or mononucleosis, making correct diagnosis difficult. Babesiosis is not bacterial like Lyme disease, but rather it is a parasite that attacks the bodys red blood cells; but caught early enough, can be cured with a regiment of antiparasitic drugs and in more critical cases, blood ...
Less than 10% of infected horses show symptoms.. Treatment for horses is a course of IV antibiotics for 4-6 weeks, administered by a veterinarian. Response is quick if the diagnosis is correct. Other adjunct treatments are anti-inflammatory medications for the pain and stiffness; along with stomach medicine to help deal with the side effects of antibiotic treatment. Probiotics can be helpful here. With horses, the only prevention method is tick control. Ticks are mostly found on the head, throat latch area, neck, stomach and under the tail areas of the horse. Cover your hands (gloves, any kind) when cleaning stalls. Check horses frequently (at the very least, daily) for ticks and remove them carefully. An infected animal is a sign that the area is endemic, so other horses found locally should have tick checks done and be observed for illness. Check with your veterinarian for prevention and tick control products that may be used on the horse.. CANINE BABESIOSIS. Babesiosis in dogs and other ...

A novel combination therapy cures an emerging infectious disease, babesiosis, which is transmitted by the same ticks that transmit the agents of Lyme disease, said Yale researchers. This radical therapy not only clears the infection but also prevents the recurrence that often occurs with existing treatments.
CIDRAP News) Researchers from the US Centers Disease for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are pressing their case for a test to screen blood donors for the tickborne disease babesiosis, reporting that 162 transfusion-related cases were documented over the past three decades, most of them since 2000. ...

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 ...
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.

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 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.
The failure of a 3-week course of chloroquine to eliminate an infection of Babesia microti acquired on Marthas Vineyard led to tests of selected drugs in hamsters infected with the strain from this patient. The results showed response to several antitrypanosomal drugs (pentamidine and 4,4′-diazoaminobenzamidine) but not to antimalarial drugs (chloroquine, sulfadiazine, and pyrimethamine). ...
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

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.. ...

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 ...
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 ...

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.. And many cases may be escaping detection, experts say.. "I think its underreported. One of the reasons were seeing more about it is because people are ...

Prevalence of equine Piroplasmosis and its association with tick infestation in the State of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Parasitology. 18(4):1-8. 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 ...
Andrew Spielman, Sc.D. (24 February 1930 - 20 December 2006) was a prominent American public health entomologist and Professor of Tropical Public Health in the Department of Immunology and Infectious Disease at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). Spielman was a world-renowned expert in the vector-borne illnesses malaria, Lyme disease, babesiosis and in the ways in which they are transmitted by mosquitoes and ticks. He was a major figure in the modern history of public health entomology. Spielman earned a B.S. from Colorado College and an Sc. D. in the malaria lab at Johns Hopkins University in 1952, serving thereafter as a public health entomologist in the U.S. Navy (he left the service as a lieutenant commander). Spielman became a member of the faculty at HSPH in 1959, where he divided his time between the lab and the field. After George Healy, a researcher at the Centers for Disease Control, helped diagnose a second case of human babesiosis on Nantucket in 1973, Spielman traveled to ...

A recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Surveillance Summary reported for the period of 2008-2015, a total of 275,589 cases of Lyme disease were reported to CDC (208,834 confirmed and 66,755 probable).. In addition, the report noted that 14 US states were met the criteria for classification as states with high incidence, New York being among them.. New York State health officials released the latest numbers on infectious diseases in the state in the Communicable Disease in New York State cases reported in 2016, which includes the three common tick-borne infections-Lyme disease, Babesiosis and Anaplasmosis-all contracted from the same blacklegged tick.. Related: We Can Prevent Half of Fatal Infections from Blood Transfusion by Screening for Babesiosis. What we see, and not altogether surprisingly, is significant increases in these tick-borne bacterial and parasitic infection in the Empire State during the past decade..

Symptoms of anaplasmosis include the abrupt onset of a high fever of 102 degrees or higher, chills, severe headache and muscle aches. The symptoms appear one to three weeks after an infectious tick bite. Although people of all ages are affected, it is the most severe in the elderly.. Babesiosis is characterized by high fever, muscle aches, fatigue, headache and loss of appetite. These symptoms usually appear one to six weeks after an infectious tick bite. Most people infected with the babesiosis parasite will experience mild symptoms or no symptoms at all. However, people who have compromised immune systems may develop severe illness.. With the exception of powassan, which is caused by a virus, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) reports all other of the states tick-borne diseases are treatable with antibiotics. If one or more of the symptoms appear within two to 30 days after a tick bite or after spending time in a wooded area where ticks are present, see you physician immediately.. If ...

Rossi wrote: "Yes, we decided to dedicate to Sven Kullander the high energy reactors. We are strongly indebted with him and I will never forget that he, while fighting for his health in the last days of his life, still helped our work with his priceless suggestions.".

Darden/IH only obtained a (manufacture/sell) license for about 55% of the world energy market.(With the option of "RFR"). If Rossi wanted to sell the license for the other 45% or any part there of, Darden inc could match any offer plus (10% if I recall correctly) and obtain the additional territories.. I see nothing in the contract to prevent Rossi from starting his own operations, but also dont see that as a show stopper for Darden. Rossi would likely abide by the implied no compete of the contract being an original signing member to the contract.. However, I believe Darden inc got a rude awakening while shopping around investors into IH. China singly tendered an offer of $200 Million dollars for a non controlling interest in IH for an as yet unproven technology. Do you think this is of no significance. Then why did Darden/IH make serious note of it in documents. Surprise-They were caught off guard.. NO Corporation can compete financially against major Governments such as the Saudis, India, ...
There is no rivalry in MotoGP more bitter than that between Valentino Rossi and Casey Stoner, more bitter even than the one between Wayne Rainey and Kevin Schwantz.

I have thought for some time and continue to believe that I have Lymes Disease. This is do to the fact that when all the symptoms started, well maybe a month or so later when I noticed it, I had a weird pinkish tan, irregularly shaped oval mark on my back. It was gone less than a month later. It did not have a bullseye but Ive heard that doesnt matter. This was back in 2002, but I was never tested for Lymes disease until about two weeks ago. I had a Lyme Titer done, which came back negative. I do not know what type of Titer was done, if they did the old ELISA test or the ELISA6 test and I assume they did not do the western blot. Additionally, I have heard that other tick borne illnesses can cause similar symptoms (babesiosis, erlichiosis). I should add that I lived in Maryland until about a year ago and individuals I knew, specifically the neighbor across the street, had contracted Lymes Disease there. I had heard that the IGeneX is the best lab to use to have your blood or other fluids tested ...

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.

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 ...
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 ...
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.
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 ...

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 ...

N2 - The authors call the attention to three pathogenic agents occurring in Hungary and capable of causing zoonotic infections, that might result in severe, potententially lethal infections in asplenic human patients. 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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
The prevalence of ticks in cattle, sheep and goats in three group ranches in the arid area of Kajiado District in Kenya was studied. Four differet genera were identified from a total of 2,546 ticks collected. Of all the ticks collected, Rhipicephalus constituted 80.45 percent, Amblyomma 16.3 percent, Hyalomma 2.64 percent and Boophilus 0.6 percent. Anaplasmosis, theileriosis and babesiosis were identified from blood and lymph nodes smears of animals from which the ticks were collected. The prevalence of these tick-borne diseases was 3.9 percent, 2.6 percent and 0.4 percent for anaplasmosis, theileriosis and babesiosis respectively ...
Across the United States, Western New York is among the areas most heavily populated by ticks. These small insects have been known to carry several potentially deadly diseases, including:. Lyme disease - A bacterial infection that can affect any organ of the body, including the brain, nervous system, muscles, joints, and the heart. Women infected with Lyme disease from a tick bite may pass the disease to their fetus, in rare cases, resulting in stillbirth.. Tularemia - A bacterial disease whose symptoms can range from mild to severe. Typically accompanied by a high fever, Tularemia may also cause a skin ulcer at the infection site, and swelling of regional lymph glands.. Ehrlichiosis - A bacterial infection that can cause flu-like symptoms that typically appear a week or two after a tick bite.. Babesiosis - A rare, severe, and sometimes fatal tick-borne disease caused by a microscopic parasite that infects red blood cells. Babesiosis may be transmitted from a pregnant woman to her fetus. ...

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 main reason why you should have ticks removed from your pets is because they can transmit diseases. Lyme disease is probably the most well-known sickness which can be transmitted because of ticks, but thats not the only one. These parasites can also transmit babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, and other diseases which can affect not just animals but humans as well.. Aside from the diseases and sickness which they can cause because of pathogens, tick infestation of a pet can also lead to other issues. For example, a large number of ticks infesting a dog can suck a large amount of the animals blood leading to anemia.There are around 200 tick species which can be found in the United States alone.. ...
HYANNIS - When Debra Jones, of Centerville, found a deer tick on her son a year after his twin brother was hospitalized with Lyme disease, she didnt panic. She mailed the tick to a then-free testing program at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, where it was found to be carrying the pathogens for two illnesses, Lyme disease and babesiosis. Armed with the UMass report, Jones requested and received a course of oral antibiotics for her son from his pediatrician.

Coartem is provided without profit to developing countries using grants from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, US President's Malaria Initiative along with other donors. Novartis has lowered the price of Coartem by 50% since 2001, increasing access to patients around the world. The first significant price reduction occurred in 2006, when the price of Coartem decreased from an average of US $1.57 to US $1.00. In 2006, due to an improved supply situation for the natural ingredient artemisinin, Novartis was able to undertake the pharmaceutical industry's most aggressive manufacturing scale-up of its kind from 4 million treatments in 2004 to 62 million treatments in 2006.[citation needed] Novartis and its partners invested heavily in expanding production capacity at their facilities in China, and Suffern, New York. This increase in production capacity ensured that supplies of Coartem met demand which enabled Novartis to further decrease the price of Coartem. In April 2008, ...
... is a form of aminoquinoline with an amine at the 8-position of quinoline. The 8-aminoquinoline family of drugs contains three members, primaquine, tafenoquine and pamaquine[1] and are used in the treatment of malaria. They may be used to eradicate malaria hypnozoites from the liver and have both been used for malaria prophylaxis. The 8-aminoquinoline drugs must not be given to patients with G6PD deficiency, because they cause potentially fatal haemolysis in these patients. Pamaquine is no longer available anywhere, but primaquine is still used routinely worldwide as part of the treatment of Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium ovale malaria. Tafenoquine is currently in Phase III clinical trials and is not yet available to prescribe. ...

From 1995 to 2013, 228 cases of CCHF were reported in the Republic of Kosovo, with a case-fatality rate of 25.5%.[21] Between 2002-2008 the Ministry of Health of Turkey reported 3,128 CCHF cases, with a 5% death rate.[citation needed] In July 2005, authorities reported 41 cases of CCHF in central Turkey's Yozgat Province, with one death.[clarification needed] As of August 2008, a total of 50 deaths were reported for the year thus far in various cities in Turkey due to CCHF.[clarification needed] In September 2010, an outbreak was reported in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. Poor diagnosis and record keeping caused the extent of the outbreak to be uncertain, though some reports indicated over 100 cases, with a case-fatality rate above 10%.[citation needed] In January 2011, the first human cases of CCHF in India was reported in Sanand, Gujarat, India, with 4 reported deaths, which included the index patient, treating physician and nurse.[22] As of May 2012[update], 71 people were reported ...

... is primarily used to prevent relapse of malaria due to Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium ovale.[9] It eliminates hypnozoites, the dormant liver form of the parasite,[10] after the organisms have been cleared from the bloodstream.[9] If primaquine is not administered to patients with proven P. vivax or P. ovale infection, a very high likelihood of relapse exists for weeks or months (sometimes years).[9] Use in combination with quinine or chloroquine each of which is very effective at clearing P. vivax from blood, improves outcomes; they appear to also potentiate the action of primaquine.[11] As of 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommended the use of primaquine for primary prophylaxis prior to travel to areas with a high incidence of P. vivax, and for terminal prophylaxis (anti-relapse therapy) after travel.[4] A single dose of primaquine has rapid and potent ability to kill gametocytes (stage V) of P. falciparum and P. vivax in blood; it also kills asexual ...
... was formulated at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) in the 1970s shortly after the end of the Vietnam war. Mefloquine was number 142,490 of a total of 250,000 antimalarial compounds screened during the study.[3] Mefloquine was the first Public-Private Venture (PPV) between the US Department of Defense and a pharmaceutical company. WRAIR transferred all its phase I and phase II clinical trial data to Hoffman LaRoche and Smith Kline. FDA approval as a treatment for malaria was swift. Most notably, phase III safety and tolerability trials were skipped.[3] The drug was first approved and sold on a commercial basis in Switzerland in 1985.[31] However, mefloquine was not approved by the FDA for prophylactic use until 1989. This approval was based primarily on compliance, while safety and tolerability were overlooked.[3] Because of the drug's very long half-life, the Centers for Disease Control originally recommended a mefloquine dosage of 250 mg every two weeks; however, this ...

Ticks generally are obligate blood feeders. All active stages (larvae, nymphs and adults) require blood as a source of nutrition (except for a few Argasid genera in which the adult mouthparts are non-functional, i.e. Antricola, Otobius and Nothoaspis). Adults also require the blood for sperm or egg production. The feeding process of Ixodid ticks has first a slow phase for several days followed by a fast phase in the last 12-24 hours before detachment. There may be a tenfold increase in fed: unfed weights by the end of the slow phase, but there is an additional tenfold increase by the end of the final fast phase. Leaving the full engorgement as late as possible reduces the chances of detection and removal by the host. The process of feeding is called engorging. The hypostome has a groove along its dorsal surface forming a food canal (also known as the preoral canal) through which blood is drawn from the host and passed on to the mouth and pharynx. During blood feeding by Ixodid ticks, the liquid ...
