Reservoir hosts of human babesiosis on Nantucket Island



Reservoir hosts of human babesiosis on Nantucket Island



American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 30(3): 560-565



Examination of Peromyscus leucopus from Nantucket Island, USA, during a 4-year period, showed that Babesia microti infections were present throughout the year, but were less frequent during the winter. Examination of P. leucopus from more than 19 locations in southern New England revealed infections in mice from all island locations except Esther and Muskeget islands, which were the only islands without deer.
