short report: distribution and feeding preference of the sand flies phlebotomus sergenti and p. papatasi in a cutaneous leishmaniasis focus in sanliurfa, turkey.sand flies (diptera: psychodidae) and rodents were collected in the endemic focus of urban cutaneous leishmaniasis in sanliurfa, turkey. phlebotomus sergenti and p. papatasi represented 99% of the sand fly population. these flies were trapped in highest numbers in animal sheds, followed by cellars. however, p. sergenti was relatively more abundant in rooms. an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay of the gut contents from blood-fed females detected immunoglobulins specific to birds and mammals, sugg ...200312556140
[prevalence of gastrointestinal nematodes in sheep in the sanliurfa region].in this study, the gastrointestinal nematodes of 75 sheep and their seasonal prevalence were investigated during march 2003-2004, in the sanliurfa district, in turkey. fifty-seven (76 %) of the sheep under investigation were infected with gastro-intestinal nematodes. eleven nematode species were detected. a total of 2,711 nematodes were collected from the digestive system of the infected sheep. the total number of parasites in each infected animal ranged from 1-977. the average number of parasit ...200617309037
a serologic investigation of blue tongue virus (btv) in cattle, sheep and gazella subgutturosa subgutturosa in southeastern turkey.bluetongue virus (btv) is a vector-borne disease of ruminants disseminated in the tropic and sub-tropic zone of the world. it is also an important problem in the middle east. three serotypes (4-9-16) of the virus have been isolated so far in turkey. gazella subgutturosa subgutturosa (goitred gazella) is native species of anatolia. due to risk of extinction, captured gazelles have been taken under protection in a restricted area at ceylanpinar state farm. in this study, the presence of bluetongue ...200818484124
molecular genetic characterization of different isolates of echinococcus granulosus in east and southeast regions of turkey.we used pcr-rflp analysis of ribosomal its1 fragment using four different restriction enzymes and dna sequencing of mitochondrial co1 gene to investigate the genetic characteristics of isolates of echinococcus granulosus obtained from different hosts (179 sheep, 19 cattle, 7 goat, 1 camel, 1 dog and 1 human) and regions (elazig, malatya, erzurum, van, diyarbakir and sanliurfa) of turkey. the report represents the most comprehensive genotypic investigation of e. granulosus isolates undertaken in ...200818579101
