Serological prevalence of human babesiosis in Venezuela

Veterinaria Tropical 1990; 13: 93-101

Direct immunofluorescence was performed on 294 human serum samples. Positive reactions for Babesia bigemina were found in 7 of 34 veterinarians, 6 of 14 veterinary auxiliary workers, 8 of 14 agricultural workers, and 105 of 232 military personnel of rural origin. Respective numbers of reactions for B. bovis were 7, 6, 4 and 47. Total reactor rates were 42.9% for B. bigemina and 21.8% for B. bovis.
