anaplasma phagocytophilum and babesia spp. in roe deer (capreolus capreolus), fallow deer (dama dama) and mouflon (ovis musimon) in germany.infections with the tick-borne pathogens anaplasma phagocytophilum and babesia spp. can cause febrile disease in several mammalian species, including humans. wild ruminants in europe are suggested to serve as reservoir hosts for particular strains or species of these pathogens. the aims of this study were to investigate the occurrence of a. phagocytophilum and babesia spp. in roe deer (capreolus capreolus), fallow deer (dama dama) and mouflon (ovis musimon orientalis) in germany, and the diversi ...201727546888
morphology and genetics of a babesia isolate from capreolus capreolus.a babesia isolate that was morphologically distinct from babesia capreoli and very similar to b. divergens was found in the blood of a roe deer (capreolus capreolus) found dead in central italy. sequences corresponding to the full coding region of the 18s ribosomal rna (rrna) gene were identical to a sequence reported for babesia divergens from a reindeer (rangifer tarandus) and 99.9% and 99.8% similar to those reported for b. capreoli and bovine origin b. divergens, respectively.200818263834
redescription of babesia capreoli (enigk and friedhoff, 1962) from roe deer (capreolus capreolus): isolation, cultivation, host specificity, molecular characterisation and differentiation from babesia divergens.the recent use of the sole molecular identification of babesia infecting european cervids has led to confusion between the closely related babesia divergens and babesia capreoli, and to their grouping together as "b. divergens-like". in order to clarify this taxonomic confusion, babesia from roe deer, cattle and human blood were isolated, cultured and their biological as well as molecular characteristics compared. on this basis, we conclude that: (i) the parasites isolated from roe deer blood ar ...201019733572
horses infected by piroplasms different from babesia caballi and theileria equi: species identification and risk factors analysis in italy.equine piroplasmosis (ep) caused by theileria equi and babesia caballi is a disease affecting the health and the international movement of horses. in order to assess prevalence of piroplasmid infection in the northwestern part of italy and to evaluate the associated risk factors, whole blood was collected from 135 horses from 7 different stables across the study area. pcr and sequencing were used to assess prevalence of infection and to identify detected piroplasms to species level. a total of 2 ...201728288762
clinical outbreak of babesiosis caused by babesia capreoli in captive reindeer (rangifer tarandus tarandus) in the netherlands.from a herd of captive reindeer (rangifer tarandus tarandus) consisting of two males and seven females with five calves, three calves were diagnosed on post mortem examination with a babesia capreoli infection. the diagnosis was indicated by pcr and when the other reindeer were examined two adult females and a one-year-old male were babesia-positive. molecular characterization of the 18s rdna of the parasite showed complete identity with known b. capreoli sequences. ixodes ricinus has been demon ...201728648772

piroplasmosis in wildlife: babesia and theileria affecting free-ranging ungulates and carnivores in the italian alps.piroplasmosis are among the most relevant diseases of domestic animals. babesia is emerging as cause of tick-borne zoonosis worldwide and free-living animals are reservoir hosts of several zoonotic babesia species. we investigated the epidemiology of babesia spp. and theileria spp. in wild ungulates and carnivores from northern italy to determine which of these apicomplexan species circulate in wildlife and their prevalence of infection.201424533742
molecular detection of babesia capreoli and babesia venatorum in wild swedish roe deer, capreolus capreolus.the epidemiology of the zoonotic tick-transmitted parasite babesia spp. and its occurrence in wild reservoir hosts in sweden is unclear. in european deer, several parasite species, including babesia capreoli and the zoonotic b. venatorum and b. divergens has been reported previously. the european roe deer, capreolus capreolus, is an important and common part of the indigenous fauna in europe, as well as an important host for ixodes ricinus ticks, the vector of several babesia spp. in europe. her ...201627094215
