A mouse model for cerebral babesiosis

A mouse model for cerebral babesiosis

Parasitology Today 12(5): 203-205

Clinical symptoms and pathology observed in the cattle infected with Babesia bovis are quite similar to those of human cerebral malaria. Mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of cerebral babesiosis, however, are still poorly understood because of the lack of a suitable experimental animal model. In this report, Masayoshi Tsuji and his colleagues describe B. bovis infection in severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) mice, whose circulating red blood cells (RBCs) have been substituted with bovine RBCs (Bo-RBC-SCID mice). The infected mice not only develop a substantial level of parasitemia, but also show nerve symptoms and pathology similar to those observed in infected cattle.
