Equine piroplasmosis seroprevalence in spanish horses prior to exportation

Equine Piroplasmosis (EP), caused by the intraerythrocytic parasites Babesia caballi and/or Theileria equi, is the main restriction for the international movement of equids from endemic countries, such as Spain, to countries free from EP, which involves huge economic losses for the equine sector. Up to present, there are no studies regarding the impact of EP on the exportation of horses from Spain; the aim of this study was to obtain the first EP seroprevalence data in horse samples received fro…

Theileria equi and Babesia caballi in vitro culture

Equine piroplasmosis (EP) is an infectious disease of equids caused by the intraerythrocytic protozoan parasites Babesia caballi (B. caballi) and Theileria equi (T. equi). The importance of this disease is the fact that, after the infection, horses can remain as chronic carriers of the parasites for a long time, being seropositive but showing clinical signs only in cases of immunosuppression or intense exercise. EP involves serious economic losses for the equine industry due to the restrictions …
