[prevalence of antibodies to anaplasma phagocytophilum and borrelia burgdorferi in forestry workers from the lublin region].ticks are recently regarded as ones of the most important vectors of emerging diseases. one of these diseases is human granulocytic ehrlichiosis caused by obligatory intracellular microorganism recently named as anaplasma phagocytophilum. 334 sera from forestry workers and 56 sera from blood donors (as a control group) were collected and examined for antibodies to a. phagocytophilum and b. burgdorferi. the antibodies were found statistically more frequently in sera from foresters compared to ser ...200416859027
prevalence of anaplasma phagocytophilum in ixodes ricinus ticks determined by polymerase chain reaction with two pairs of primers detecting 16s rrna and anka genes.a total of 684 ixodes ricinus ticks (321 nymphs, 184 males, and 179 females) were collected by flagging lower vegetation in 6 forest districts located on the territory of lublin province (eastern poland). ticks were examined by polymerase chain reaction (pcr) method for the presence of anaplasma phagocytophilum dna with two pairs of primers: ehr521/ehr747 for detecting 16s rrna gene, and la6/la1 for detecting anka gene. to study the relationship between infection in ticks and people occupational ...200718247465
prevalence of infections and co-infections with 6 pathogens in dermacentor reticulatus ticks collected in eastern poland.occurrence of co-infections with various pathogens in ixodid ticks creates a risk of increased severity of tick-borne diseases in humans and animals exposed to bite of the ticks carrying multiple pathogens. accordingly, co-infections in ticks were subject of numerous analyses, but almost exclusively with regard to ixodes ricinus complex whereas potential tick vectors belonging to other genera were much less studied. taking into consideration the role of dermacentor reticulatus in the transmissio ...201728378977
serological surveillance of vector-borne and zoonotic diseases among hunters in eastern poland.many etiological agents of zoonoses are considered as significant biological hazard to people visiting forested areas frequently, for instance, hunters. they may be exposed to ticks, rodents, and birds as well as excreta/secretions of wild animals or contaminated water and soil. hence, this population is at risk of contracting infection with pathogens such as borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (s.l.), anaplasma phagocytophilum, babesia spp., tick-borne encephalitis virus, bartonella spp., francisel ...201628035113
