Epidemiological study of Babesiosis in Sheep in Gibash Locality, West Kordufan State

Abstract

A cross sectional study was conducted from January to May 2018 to investigate

the prevalence Babesia infection in sheep and to assess the relationship between

the occurrence of these parasites and factors of age, sex, district, body condition,

rising system, ,presence of ticks uses of treatment, uses of acaricides in Gibash

locality, west Kordufan state- Sudan. A total of 255 bloods amples were collected from five districts namely: Aumzagaia, Aum-sidare, Diglowa, Gibash Wad-gasim, respectively, and examined using microscopy examination. The result showed that Babesia infection was common in sheep and the prevalence is estimated to be 12.2% (31/255).

The subsequent risk factors revealed association with sheep Babesiosis in the

univariate analysis under significant level of P-value ≤ 0.5: BCS (p-value = 0.003),

presences of ticks (P-value = 0.000), rising system (p-value = 0.000), district (pvalue

= 0.025). These factors may be contributing factors for the relatively high prevalence of Babesia infection among sheep.
