pcr detection of anaplasma phagocytophilum and borrelia burgdorferi in ixodes persulcatus ticks in mongolia.a molecular epidemiological survey was conducted to identify the tick-borne disease agents anaplasma phagocytophilum and borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in selenge province, mongolia. the survey was in response to a suspected a. phagocytophilum infection in a patient. in 2012, a total of 129 questing ixodes persulcatus adult ticks were sampled by flagging vegetation. a. phagocytophilum and borrelia spp. were detected by pcr, targeting the 16s rdna (rrs) and 5s-23s intergenic spacer region, respe ...201424451102
high prevalence of genetically diverse borrelia bavariensis-like strains in ixodes persulcatus from selenge aimag, mongolia, lyme borreliosis was first reported in 2003. to determine which borrelia species may contribute to the occurrence of lyme borreliosis in mongolia, real-time pcr was conducted on 372 adult ixodes persulcatus ticks collected in selenge aimag, the province with the highest incidence of human lyme borreliosis. 24.5% of ticks were identified to be positive for borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato dna. species differentiation using an snp-based real-time pcr and multi-locus sequence analysis r ...201323084366
serological evidence for tick-borne encephalitis, borreliosis, and human granulocytic anaplasmosis in mongolia.five hundred and forty-five serum samples from donors from various parts of mongolia were investigated for antibodies against the tick-borne encephalitis (tbe) virus, borrelia burgdorferi, and anaplasma phagocytophilum. seroprevalence against tbe was 5.1% in the province of selenge and 0.9% in bulgan province, seroprevalence against b. burgdorferi was 1.9% in selenge province and bulgan province, 13.9% in dornogov province, and 3.0% in tov province and ulaanbaatar. seroprevalence against a. phag ...200616524782
