Hi there! I don’t know much but maybe this information can help you. Babesiosis is a disease caused by protozoan parasites of the genus Babesia. Around 100 species have been reported, only a few have been identified as causing human infections. Those that are identified are Babesia microti and Babesia divergens. Babesiosis can cause Malaria-like symptoms and hemolitic anemia. At the greatest risk are asplenic, elderly and immunocompromised patients but it can also develop in immunologically normal persons.Artemisin has been previously developed as an anti-malarial but it seems that it can be used to treat babesia with 100mg, 3 times/day.
