seasonal rainfall variability, the incidence of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome, and prediction of the disease in low-lying areas of investigate determinants of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (hfrs) in low-lying areas of china, the authors studied chuigang and wanggang communities in anhui province. these adjacent farming communities have a population of about 100,000. data were collected from the two communities in 1961-1977 and from yingshang county in 1983-1995; information covered the incidence of hfrs, amount of precipitation, differences in the water level of the huai river, density of apodemus agrarius, autum ...19989690365
borrelia sinica sp. nov., a lyme disease-related borrelia species isolated in china.a survey was performed for lyme disease borrelia in the southern part of china, in zhejiang, sichuan and anhui provinces, along the yangtze river valley, in may of 1997 and 1998. twenty isolates from ixodes granulatus, ixodes ovatus, apodemus agrarius and niviventer confucianus were obtained. these isolates were characterized by rflp of the 5s-23s rdna intergenic spacer, sequence analysis of the intergenic spacer, 16s rdna and flagellin gene, dna-dna hybridization analysis, sds-page and western ...200111594614
time-series analysis of the risk factors for haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome: comparison of statistical models.three conventional regression models were compared using the time-series data of the occurrence of haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (hfrs) and several key climatic and occupational variables collected in low-lying land, anhui province, china. model i was a linear time series with normally distributed residuals; model ii was a generalized linear model with poisson-distributed residuals and a log link; and model iii was a generalized additive model with the same distributional features as mo ...200716780612
determination of scrub typhus suggests a new epidemic focus in the anhui province of 2007, 19 cases of a scrub typhus epidemic occurred within a week at a sports school in mingguang county, anhui province, where no previous incidence of this mite borne disease had been reported. sero-surveillance in 2009 indicated that 10 of the 100 school students possessed anti-orientia tsutsugamushi antibodies. from 2009 to 2013, 60 small animals and 2250 mites were collected in the vicinity of the school. 5 of the apodemus agrarius samples and 1 group of leptotrombidium linhuaikongense te ...201626860982
orientia tsutsugamushi infection in rodents in anhui province of china.we conducted an investigation of orientia tsutsugamushi infection among rodents in non-endemic areas in anhui province. fifty-six (56) rodents including 44 apodemus agrarius and 12 niviventer niviventer were trapped and captured in autumn in the fields of three counties in anhui province. dna samples were amplified and sequenced for the 56kda protein gene of orientia tsutsugamushi. the overall infection rate in the rodents was 23.2%(13/56). the rate of detection of o. tsutsugamushi in apodemus a ...201729037778
