Immunity to Babesia in mice. I. Adoptive transfer of immunity to Babesia rodhaini with immune spleen cells and the effect of irradiation on the protection of immune mice.


Immunisation of Balb/c mice against Babesia rodhaini by an amicarbalide-controlled infection resulted in a solid immunity which lasted for 216 days. With spleen cells of immune mice protection could be transferred both to naive mice pretreated with cyclophosphamide.
