Abstract

The effect of chronic infection with the protozoan parasite Babesia rodhaini on the subsequent development of mouse leukemia was investigated in three different murine leukemia-lymphoma model systems: congenital lymphoma (in AKR mice), irradiation-induced lymphoma (in C57BL mice), and Rauscher-virus-induced leukemia in NMRI mice. Leukemia incidence was significantly greater than in controls in Babesia-infected (NMRI strain) mice that had been infected with an adjusted dose of Rauscher leukemia virus.
