Data for age and the incidence of antibody to Babesia divergens in cattle from areas of high and low endemicity have been analysed using three simple epidemiological models to estimate the rates of gain and loss of antibody. The models adequately described the observations but did not allow for an increased recovery rate attributable to acquired immunity in… CONTINUE READING
