the transovarial transmission of babesia trautmanni by rhipicephalus simus to domestic pigs.rhipicephalus simus was, for the first time, experimentally proven to be a transovarial vector of babesia trautmanni of domestic pigs. the nymphal and adult progeny of experimentally infected female ticks transmitted the infection to 2 susceptible splenectomized pigs. features of the infection included a prepatent period of 6-8 days post-tick infestation, a febrile reaction for 3 days and a maximum parasitaemia score of 15 (more than 6 parasites per 300 red blood cells). other clinical signs in ...19921437025
studies on the blood parasites of pigs in ibadan, nigeria.the blood parasites in the blood of local pigs kept under free range, and exotic pigs kept under intensive management of ibadan were investigated. the species found were babesia trautmanni, b. perroncitoi, eperythrozoon suis and e. parvum. eperythrozoon suis was the most predominant in both breeds. most of the local pigs carried mixed infections, while the same number of the exotic pigs carried single and mixed infections. mixed infection of individual pigs with all four blood parasites was comm ...19827201715
pathogenicity of eperythrozoon suis alone and when mixed with babesia trautmanni in experimentally-infected pigs.the pathogenicity of a single infection with eperythrozoon suis and of a mixed infection of e. suis and babesia trautmanni in experimentally-infected pigs, was described. in the pigs with a single infection, parasitaemia of e. suis was observed 4 days after blood inoculation. although parasitaemia with this parasite was also observed on the 4th day in a mixed infection, the parasitaemia of b. trautmanni was not noted until 14 days after inoculation at a period when that of e. suis had started to ...19836685398

parasites in cross-bred pigs in the upper east region of ghana.a cross-sectional study was carried out in the upper east region (uer) of ghana in order to estimate the prevalence of parasitic infections in local cross-bred pigs. out of 60 villages with a human population of 200-1000 inhabitants, 10 villages were randomly selected for the study. the number of pigs varied from 50 to 200 pigs per village. in total 259 faecal samples from growers were collected and examined. ninety-one percent of the animals excreted parasite eggs. among these the prevalence of ...199910628701
