Final Report - MEDLABAB (Molecular characterisation of Latin American and Mediterranean Babesia bovis and B. bigemina strains and its application for the development of improved control strategies)

Project ID: 3691
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

This is the final report for the MEDLABAB project, which aimed to develop parasitic control strategies for cattle, specifically for the disease-causing strains Babesia bovis and B. Bigemina. The document examines generating tools and knowledge that help control the disease, ultimately through vaccine design and through decision-making to adopt adequate control measures. It discusses the development of new diagnostic methods for bovine babesiosis. The project brought together a consortium of partners from around the world (Argentina, Brazil, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Turkey) to tackle nine distinct work packages that are outlined in the report, each with its own tasks and achievements.
