anaplasma phagocytophilum, sardinia, italy. 200516110587
equine and canine anaplasma phagocytophilum strains isolated on the island of sardinia (italy) are phylogenetically related to pathogenic strains from the united states.the presence of anaplasma phagocytophilum, a tick-transmitted zoonotic pathogen, was investigated in sardinia using a molecular approach. phylogenetic analysis revealed that sardinian strains are genetically distinct from the two lineages previously described in europe and are closely related to strains isolated in different areas of the united states.200516204571
pathogens and symbionts in ticks: a survey on tick species distribution and presence of tick-transmitted micro-organisms in sardinia, italy.a total of 1485 adult ticks were collected from mammalian hosts in south-eastern sardinia, italy, during the years 2007-2008. ticks were identified and tested by pcr analysis for presence of rickettsia species of the spotted fever group, ehrlichia canis, anaplasma phagocytophilum, coxiella burnetii, bartonella species and leishmania species. among all tick species examined (rhipicephalus sanguineus, rhipicephalus turanicus, rhipicephalus bursa, rhipicephalus pusillus, hyalomma marginatum margina ...201020884769
molecular diagnosis of granulocytic anaplasmosis and infectious cyclic thrombocytopenia by pcr-rflp.anaplasma phagocytophilum (a. phagocytophilum, formerly ehrlichia phagocytophila) is a tick-borne pathogen responsible for tick-borne fever in ruminants, equine granulocytic ehrlichiosis (ege) in horses, canine granulocytic ehrlichiosis (cge) in dogs, and for human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (hge). human cases have been registered in many countries with a broad range of symptoms and pathogenicity. this article focused on sardinia as the prevalence in humans was almost seven times higher than in t ...200617135540
