serologic testing for human granulocytic ehrlichiosis at a national referral center.an indirect immunofluorescence assay (ifa) was used to identify patients with antibodies reactive to the human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (hge) agent. serum samples collected from clinically ill individuals were submitted to the centers for disease control and prevention by physicians via state health departments from throughout the united states and tested against a panel of ehrlichial and rickettsial pathogens. antibodies reactive to the hge agent were detected in 142 (8.9%) of 1,602 individual ...19999986812

association between coxiella burnetii shedding in milk and subclinical mastitis in dairy cattle.the objective of this research was to explore the potential association between coxiella burnetii shedding in milk and chronic subclinical mastitis in dairy cattle. in two separate studies, we identified an association between pcr-based detection of c. burnetii in milk and chronic subclinical mastitis in lactating dairy cows. these studies were conducted in a commercial dairy herd where there was ongoing intensive monitoring of subclinical mastitis by aerobic bacteriology, but no prior knowledge ...200818252189
q fever outbreak among travelers to germany who received live cell therapy--united states and canada, 2014.during september–november 2014, the new york state department of health (nysdoh) was notified of five new york state residents who had tested seropositive for coxiella burnetii, the causative agent of q fever. all five patients had symptoms compatible with q fever (e.g., fever, fatigue, chills, and headache) and a history of travel to germany to receive a medical treatment called "live cell therapy" (sometimes called "fresh cell therapy") in may 2014. live cell therapy is the practice of injecti ...201526421460

seroepidemiology of coxiella burnetii in wild white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus) in new york, united states.coxiella burnetii is an environmentally resistant bacterium that has been reported in wildlife populations. frequent contact on pasture between white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus) and cattle has been reported by farmers in the northeast u.s., and transmission of c. burnetii is thought to occur between wild deer and domestic livestock such as cows, sheep, and goats. blood samples were collected from white-tailed deer throughout new york state in 2009 and 2010 and examined for anti-c. burne ...201222989183
disease risk surface for coxiella burnetii seroprevalence in white-tailed deer.coxiella burnetii is considered a re-emerging zoonosis in many countries. the bacterium is enzootic in livestock and wildlife in the united states, and environmental contamination is widespread. despite the potential for exposure, the estimated prevalence of q fever in humans and animals is not well elucidated, and reported human infections in the united states are relatively rare. zoonotic transmission of the bacterium is usually associated with abortions in domestic ruminants, but other modes ...201323176671
prevalence and spatial distribution of antibodies to bovine viral diarrhea virus and coxiella burnetii in white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus) in new york and pennsylvania.significant pathogens of domestic livestock and public-health related pathogens, such as bovine viral diarrhea virus (bvdv) and coxiella burnetii, are commonly diagnosed in some wildlife species. bvdv is an economically important pathogen of domestic bovids and coxiella burnetii is a highly infectious zoonotic bacterium. as a result of recent shifting patterns of disease, it is critical that baseline information regarding the status of both significant pathogens of domestic livestock and public- ...201223082509
serologic detection of a rare case of q fever in new york city having hepatic and unusual renal complications.we describe the case of a 46-year-old resident of new york city with a one-year history of frequent urination and 3 weeks of undulating fevers. he also had liver and bone marrow abnormalities where a non-culturable gram-negative rod was identified. q fever was suspected and confirmed based on highly elevated phase i and ii serum igm/igg antibodies against coxiella burnetii.201020376527
