[seroepidemiological studies on the detection of q fever in sheep in middle thuringia].in a random samples test altogether 4337 sheep of varying ages from several herds of different sizes in the middle region of thuringia were investigated with complement fixing test for the existence of q fever. in 47.1 per cent of the tested herds and in 5 from 8 of the included districts q fever reagents were provable. the serological detection quota of all tested sheep amounts to 1.11 per cent, but the percentage of serological reagents in mother-sheep was 1.36 per cent, in the female young sh ...19921463436
diversity and coexistence of tick-borne pathogens in central total, 1000 ixodes ricinus l. ticks were collected from a small recreational forest area in central germany (thuringia) and investigated for the presence of borrelia spp., babesia spp., anaplasma spp., rickettsia spp., coxiella burnetii, and francisella tularensis. overall, 43.6% of the ticks were infected with at least one pathogen. in 8.4% of ticks double infections were detected, and 1.6% harbored more than two pathogens. in this study, we present data on the coexistence of established and ...201121661327
prevalence of coxiella burnetii in clinically healthy german sheep flocks.current epidemiological data on the situation of coxiella (c.) burnetii infections in sheep are missing, making risk assessment and the implementation of counteractive measures difficult. using the german state of thuringia as a model example, the estimated sero-, and antigen prevalence of c. burnetii (10% and 25%, respectively) was assessed at flock level in 39/252 randomly selected clinically healthy sheep flocks with more than 100 ewes and unknown abortion rate.201222429653
