Gene context of Babesiosis

  • Serum studies were also carried out retrospectively on stored sera from patients with babesiosis [16].
  • Two persons who had been splenectomized later contracted babesiosis, one on Cape Cod and one near Islip, Long Island, areas where human cases of babesiosis had not been previously identified [17].
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: We describe a 62-year-old man with babesiosis, outline his clinical course and response to therapy, and discuss the use of the polymerase chain reaction for the diagnosis and monitoring of the infection [18].
  • Nylar and CFW mice as well as CFW and Wistar intact and splenectomized rats were refractory to B. microti isolates from Long Island. Indirect fluorescence tests using convalescent sera from six Long Island cases of babesiosis showed no titer differences with tests using the three Long Island antigens as well as the Gray strain antigens [19].
  • To determine whether the relative abundance of immature Ixodes dammini (the vector of Lyme disease and human babesiosis) is related to habitat structure, we examined tick burdens on their main host, the white-footed mouse (Peromyscus leucopus), in 4 structurally diverse sites on Great Island, Massachusetts, USA [20].
