Such resistance has bee) detected in babesiosis (Riek 1968, Zwart ard Brocklesby, 1979) an: lasmosis (Ristic, 1968; 1981) and heartwater (Uilenberg, 1983), but ,10 evidence for an age-related innate resistance has been described in theileriosis apart from the rather equivocal data reported by Adler and Ellenbogen (1935) for calves infected with Theileria annulata.
