BABESIA ANTIBODIES, IgG & IgM

Babesiosis is a zoonotic infection caused by the protozoan parasite Babesia microti. The infection is aquired by contact with ticks which carry the parasite. Serological tests are useful specially if the parasitemia is too low to detect or if the infection has cleared either naturally or following treatment. Serology is also useful in the follow up of documented cases of Babesiosis or if chronic infection is suspected.
