Abstract

We examined lymphoproliferative response to phytohemagglutinin and anti-parasite antibody level in dogs naturally infected with Babesia gibsoni. The dogs with subclinical B. gibsoni infection exhibited suppressed lymphocyte blastogenesis. Prominent depression of lymphocyte blastogenesis and anti-parasite antibody production was observed in dogs suffering from relapses of clinical B. gibsoni infection.
