Human babesiosis: an emerging tick-borne disease.
Human babesiosis is an important emerging tick-borne disease. Babesia divergens, a parasite of cattle, has been implicated as the most common agent of human babesiosis in Europe, causing severeExpand
Toxoplasma gondii: epidemiology, feline clinical aspects, and prevention.
TLDR
Because of their fastidious nature, the passing of non-infective oocysts, and the short duration of oocyst shedding, direct contact with cats is not thought to be a primary risk for human infection. Expand
Neosporosis in cattle.
TLDR
Suggested control measures focus on programs to reduce the number of congenitally infected animals retained in the herd and to minimize the opportunity for postnatal transmission from the environment. Expand
Transmission of Toxoplasma: clues from the study of sea otters as sentinels of Toxoplasma gondii flow into the marine environment.
TLDR
Investigation into the processes promoting T. gondii infections in sea otters will provide a better understanding of terrestrial parasite flow and the emergence of disease at the interface between wildlife, domestic animals and humans. Expand
Coastal freshwater runoff is a risk factor for Toxoplasma gondii infection of southern sea otters (Enhydra lutris nereis).
TLDR
Evidence implicating land-based surface runoff as a source of T. gondii infection for marine mammals, specifically sea otters, is provided and provides a convincing illustration of pathogen pollution in the marine ecosystem. Expand
Immune responses to Neospora caninum and prospects for vaccination.
TLDR
This article discusses some of the issues and reports on the progress towards a vaccine for neosporosis and suggests vaccination is a feasible option to control the disease. Expand
PATTERNS OF MORTALITY IN SOUTHERN SEA OTTERS (ENHYDRA LUTRIS NEREIS) FROM 1998–2001
TLDR
A pattern of mortality, observed predominantly in juvenile and prime-aged adult southern sea otters, has negative implications for the overall health and recovery of this population. Expand
Infection with a babesia-like organism in northern California.
TLDR
A newly identified babesia-like organism causes infections in humans in the western United States, andylogenic analysis showed that this strain is more closely related to a known canine pathogen and to theileria species than to some members of the genus Babesia. Expand
Hemolytic anemia caused by Babesia gibsoni infection in dogs.
TLDR
The pathogenicity of B gibsoni, difficulties in diagnosis, the parasite's resistance to treatment with available drugs, and frequent interstate movement of dogs indicate that this disease may be a serious threat to dogs throughout the United States. Expand
Detection of Babesia microti by polymerase chain reaction
TLDR
DNA amplification may provide an adjunct to conventional methods for the diagnosis of human babesiosis and may provide a new means of monitoring therapy or enhancing epidemiological surveillance for this emerging pathogen. Expand
