1. [No author]. Protective effects of an experimental sporozoite-based immunization strategy against Theileria equi .

Degree: 2016, Washington State University

Theileria equi is a tick-transmitted apicomplexan hemoparasite parasite of equids with a worldwide distribution and a cause of equine piroplasmosis, a World Organization of Animal Health (OIE) reportable disease. Although a protective vaccine would improve current T. equi control strategies, no vaccine is available. In natural transmission the infective life stage is the sporozoite, which is inoculated by ticks; therefore specific immune responses directed against sporozoites could prevent the establishment of infection. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the protective effects of an experimental radiation-attenuated whole sporozoite immunization strategy against T. equi sporozoite challenge. Three horses were immunized with irradiated sporozoites three times at six week intervals, while three additional horses were inoculated with non-irradiated infectious sporozoites at the same interval, and cleared of infection three weeks after each inoculation by treatment with imidocarb dipropionate. All horses were subsequently challenged with non-irradiated infectious T. equi sporozoites. Repeated immunization with irradiated sporozoites prevented infection in one horse, while partial protection (mitigation of clinical signs) was observed in the two other horses. Prior to challenge, antibodies against equi merozoite antigen (EMA)-1 and 2 were identified in both groups but did not correlate with complete protection. Our results suggest that a protective sporozoite-based vaccine is feasible against T. equi, but correlates of protection are yet undefined. In addition, this study describes a method for efficiently generating a T. equi sporozoite preparation with enhanced purity. Advisors/Committee Members: Mealey, Robert H (advisor).

2. [No author]. IN VITRO DRUG SUSCEPTIBILITY OF THEILERIA EQUI AND THE ROLE OF ABC TRANSPORTERS IN RESISTANCE TO IMIDOCARB DIPROPIONATE .

Degree: 2015, Washington State University

The primary work presented involves evaluation of the apicomplexan hemoparasite Theileria equi for imidocarb dipropionate resistance, assessment of possible alternative treatment options, and investigation of the potential role for ATP-binding cassette transporters in drug resistance. An in vitro drug susceptibility assay was developed and adapted to multiple different drugs. The susceptibility of two T. equi isolates and a lab generated variant to both imidocarb dipropionate and the experimental bumped kinase inhibitor 1294 was assessed. Two distinct isolates of T. equi had an almost four-fold difference in imidocarb dipropionate susceptibility, and a variant generated through continuous in vitro imidocarb dipropionate exposure developed a further 15-fold decrease in susceptibility. In contrast, there was no difference in susceptibility to bumped kinase inhibitor 1294, suggesting that these drugs may represent a possible alternative for resistant T. equi parasites. Also presented is the failure of four T. equi infected ponies to clear infection with the USDA Florida strain despite two rounds of imidocarb dipropionate treatment, a demonstration of drug resistance in vivo. This collective data raises concern for the existence and emergence of drug resistance at the parasite level. An investigation was undertaken of the 45 putative T. equi ATP-binding cassette transporters as potential mediators of imidocarb dipropionate efflux leading to drug resistance. Selection of the most likely candidate transporters based on differential transcription was accomplished using RNA sequencing. No experiments performed in this study supported imidocarb dipropionate as a substrate for efflux by the most differentially expressed ABC transporter BEWA_032300, however there are other transporters of interest and other mechanisms by which ABC transporters can contribute to drug resistance for further investigation.The described drug assay was utilized in a collaborative project to examine the effect of environmental exposures on the stability and efficacy of buparvaquone and parvaquone. T. equi was used as a model organism for Theileria parva, for which these drugs are vital in prophylaxis and treatment. It was found that air exposure causes significant drug degradation and subsequent loss of efficacy, a finding that has implications for successful treatment as well as the prevention of drug resistance development.
