Evaluation of the Immune Response and Antigenic Signature of Patients with Babesia Infection in Pennsylvania with the Aim of Developing a Rapid Diagnostic Test

We are evaluating patients who have been infected with Babesia. Babesia is a blood parasite that is acquired from ticks. The number of cases seen in Pennsylvania every year has been increasing. We intend to evaluate the blood of patients acutely infected with Babesiosis and compare it to the blood of healthy individuals. We hope to identify proteins in the blood of acutely infected patients that are specific for Babesia that could then be used to create a rapid diagnostic test.
