ecoepidemiology of tularemia in the southcentral united states.we combined county-based data for tularemia incidence from 1990 to 2003 for a nine-state region (arkansas, illinois, indiana, kansas, kentucky, missouri, nebraska, oklahoma, and tennessee) in the southcentral united states with geographic information system (gis)-based environmental data to determine associations between coverage by different habitats (especially dry forest representing suitable tick habitat) and tularemia incidence. high-risk counties (> 1 case per 100,000 person-years) cluster ...200818385353
francisella tularensis bacteria associated with feline tularemia in the united states.tularemia in the united states was examined by reviewing 106 francisella tularensis isolates, mostly from nebraska, collected during 1998-2012: 48% of nebraska cases were cat-associated; 7/8 human cases were caused by subtype a.i. a vaccine is needed to reduce feline-associated tularemia, and cat owners should protect against bites/scratches and limit their pet's outdoor access.201425424732
