[seroprevalence of anaplasma phagocytophilum infection in dogs in germany].to determine the prevalence of anaplasma phagocytophilum in dogs in germany serum samples from 1124 dogs that were under suspicion of having anaplasmosis were examined. the samples were tested by an indirect immunofluorescence test (oft) for antibodies to a. phagocytophilum. the geographical origin of positive cases were analysed with an geographic information system. antibodies to a. phagocytophilum were found in 563 (50.1%) of the tested dogs. 166 dogs came from saarland, 161 from north rhine- ...200617009720
prevalence of anaplasma phagocytophilum and coinfection with borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in the hard tick ixodes ricinus in the city of hanover (germany).the castor bean tick ixodes ricinus has been found to be the main vector for lyme borreliosis spirochetes and anaplasma phagocytophilum in central europe. 1646 i. ricinus ticks from hanover, a city located in northern germany, were examined for infection with a. phagocytophilum and coinfection with borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (sl) to obtain so far missing prevalence data for this region. the total a. phagocytophilum infection rate was 3.2% (52/1646 ticks), divided into 4.1% (32/777) adults a ...201121919727
seroprevalence and bacteremia [corrected] of anaplasma phagocytophilum in cats from bavaria and lower saxony (germany).anaplasma (a.) phagocytophilum is a tick-transmitted obligate intracellular bacterium and has been identified in a wide range of mammalian species, causing febrile disease in some. few reports show that it can also cause granulocytic anaplasmosis in cats. as data on the occurrence of a. phagocytophilum in cats from germany is limited, a total of 326 serum and 306 edta-blood samples from cats from germany were screened by direct (giemsa-stained blood/buffy coat smears, real-time pcr) and indirect ...201222515036
