The distribution of Hyalomma species on domestic animals was studied in four zoogeoghraphical zones and tick species collected are candidates for investigation as vectors of pathogenic organisms in Iran.
Clinical, haematologic and pathologic aspects of experimental ovine babesiosis in Iran.
Studies on the pathogenesis of Babesia ovis infection following blood transfusion of infected blood to sheep with intact spleen and splenectomised sheep showed that all animals developed fever concurrent with a parasitaemia, and clinical signs of disease were severe.
Ribosomal small-subunit RNA gene-sequence analysis of Theileria lestoquardi and a Theileria species highly pathogenic for small ruminants in China
On the basis of the srRNA nucleotide sequence, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primers were designed that specifically amplified genomic DNA of the Chinese Theileria species and may be valuable tools in future epidemiology studies.
Simultaneous differentiation between Theileria spp. and Babesia spp. on stained blood smear using PCR
It is shown that it is possible to detect piroplasms in already stained blood smears as well enabling a simpler method to be developed for the collection of the samples, and that using a primer designed from the hyper variable region V4 of 18S rRNA, it is Possible to detect and differentiate simultaneously the genera Theileria and Babesia in DNA samples isolated from already stainedBlood smears.
