Abstract

New cases of human babesiosis were recently reported in Europe. The etiological agent was identified as Babesia EU1, a zoonotic pathogen with previously unreported molecular characteristics. On the basis of a comparison of the complete babesial 18S rRNA gene, we have generated strong molecular evidence that Ixodes ricinus ticks from Slovenia are infected with EU1.
