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
detection of tick-borne pathogens in roe deer (capreolus capreolus), in questing ticks (ixodes ricinus), and in ticks infesting roe deer in southern germany.the hard tick ixodes ricinus is the most common tick in central europe and plays an important role as a vector of several pathogens. in the complex life cycles of these pathogens, the role of wild animals as natural reservoirs has been discussed. the aims of this study were to investigate the role of roe deer (capreolus capreolus) as a potential reservoir host for babesia spp., anaplasma phagocytophilum, and rickettsia spp. therefore, we explored the differences in the infection rates of roe dee ...201323571115
assessing the risk of human granulocytic anaplasmosis and lyme borreliosis after a tick bite in bavaria, date, only isolated incidences of human granulocytic anaplasmosis (hga) have been reported in europe. however, entomological studies in bavaria, germany showed a prevalence of anaplasma phagocytophilum of between 2 and 9.5% in the tick vector ixodes ricinus. in this study we assessed the risk of pathogenic a. phagocytophilum infection after a tick bite in bavaria. the seroprevalence of anti-borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (s.l.) antibodies was investigated as an indicator of past exposure, se ...201526338146
anaplasma phagocytophilum infection in ixodes ricinus, bavaria, germany.anaplasma phagocytophilum dna was detected by real-time pcr, which targeted the msp2 gene, in 2.9% of questing ixodes ricinus ticks (adults and nymphs; n = 2,862), collected systematically from selected locations in bavaria, germany, in 2006. prevalence was significantly higher in urban public parks in munich than in natural forests.200818507918
[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
