Fatal experimental transplacental Babesia gibsoni infections in dogs
Fukumoto S, Suzuki H, Igarashi I, Xuan X. Int J Parasitol. 2005 Aug;35(9):1031-5.
A Babesia gibsoni infected bitch was mated with an uninfected dog in order to determine whether this parasite could be vertically transmitted. The bitch delivered a litter of four live and one stillborn pup. The four pups died from congenital babesiosis between 14 and 39 days post-birth. Babesia gibsoni DNA was detected in tissue from all five pups. These results show that vertical transmission occurred by the uterine route and not via the transmammary route. This is the first confirmed report of transplacental Babesia infection in any animal species.

2004 - ringforms in red blood cells of danish chronically ill patients
Power-point (PPT) presentation by Marie Kroun, MD at the conf. in York, UK, June 2004.
15 of 33 chronically ill patients had ringforms in red blood cells. Only few of the 15 had been abroad to malaria endemic regions. All 33 had positive reaction with added specific antibodies against Borrelia burgdorferi, thus the ringforms seen could be the tick-borne species of ringformed parasites, named babesia? - unfortunately it has not been possible to test specifically for these parasites.
Patients with ringforms reacted different to antibiotic treatment than those with "only" borrelia associated structures; response to drugs like amoxicillin and doxycycline was slow and low (took double time to get half way), most responded better to a combination treatment with metronidazole and azithromycin ...
