Transmission studies of Babesia microti in Ixodes ricinus ticks and gerbils


Transmission studies of Babesia microti in Ixodes ricinus ticks and gerbils



Journal of Clinical Microbiology 40(4): 1259-1263



ISSN/ISBN: 0095-1137

PMID: 11923342

DOI: 10.1128/jcm.40.4.1259-1263.2002

In order to investigate the possible role of Ixodes ricinus as a vector of zoonotic Babesia microti infection in Europe, a European rodent isolate (HK) and a zoonotic American isolate (GI) were studied in transmission experiments. PCR detected B. microti in the blood and spleens of infected gerbils (Meriones unguiculatus) and also in laboratory-induced infections of I. ricinus ticks.
