Part Description

LP265757-7   Babesia divergens+MO-1 strain 18S rRNA gene
Babesia divergens-like MO-1 strain is a parasite that invades human red blood cells and is transmitted by the Ixodid tick. Infection by the Babesia species was first discovered in Croatia in 1957, but has proven to exist across the world in the last fifty years. B. divergens-like Missouri strain primarily infects humans who live in Missouri, Kentucky, and Washington state. The Babesia parasites possess vesicles that secrete enzymes that facilitates its entrance into the host erythrocytes. They reproduces asexually in red blood cells and sexually in the Ixodid tick. Infection with Babesia leads to a wide range and severity of symptoms. Symptoms that are characterized as mild to moderate include fever, fatigue, chills, sweats, headache, myalgia, anorexia cough, arthralgia and nausea. Symptoms of severe illness are seen most often in patients who are immunosuppressed due to infections like Human immunodeficiency virus and conditions such as cancer. Severe symptoms of Babesia infection include respiratory failure, disseminated intravascular coagulation, congestive heart failure, liver and renal failure, and splenic infarction. Infection with Babesia divergens-like Missouri strain consistently causes symptoms that are life threatening. There are several ways to diagnose infections with Babesia including thick and thin smear analysis, polymerase chain reaction, indirect immunofluorescence antibody, and by injecting patient blood into a hamster and waiting for severe parasitemia to develop in 2-4 weeks. Treatment of Babesia infection is with antibiotics or exchange transfusion when the parasite load in the blood becomes very high.[PMID:18755385][https://academic.oup.com/cid/article/64/11/1622/3067352/Possible-TransfusionTransmitted-Babesia] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
