Immunochromatographic assay of Babesia caballi and Babesia equi Laveran 1901 (Theileria equi Mehlhorn and Schein, 1998) (Phylum Apicomplexa) infection in Philippine horses correlated with parasite detection in blood smears.
To the authors' knowledge, this is the fi rst immunochromatographic assay of equine babesiosis in the Philippines validated by the detection of specifi c etiologic agent(s) in blood smears. Expand
