molecular detection of crimean-congo haemorrhagic fever virus (cchfv) but not west nile virus (wnv) in hard ticks from provinces in northern turkey.in this study, the hard ticks collected from a variety of mammalian species (cattle, sheep, goat, buffalo) and a turtle in either coastal or inland black sea region of turkey were surveyed for the presence of rna from crimean-congo haemorrhagic fever virus (cchfv) and west nile virus (wnv). no wnv genomic rna was detected in any tick sample. however, cchfv rna was found in 29 of 421 tick pools (6.88%). positivity rates for the provinces varied and were as follows: samsun 4.38%; ordu 4.34%; gires ...201020163578
an antigenic investigation of crimean-congo hemorrhagic fever virus (cchfv) in hard ticks from provinces in northern turkey.crimean-congo hemorrhagic fever virus threatens human health. exposure of the infected tick is a strong risk factor for human disease. in this study, the hard ticks collected from a variety of mammalian species (cattle, sheep, goat, and buffalo) and a turtle in either coastal or inland black sea region of turkey were surveyed for the presence of antigen from crimean-congo hemorrhagic fever virus (cchfv). cchfv antigen was found in 46 of 421 tick pools (10.92%). positivity rates for the provinces ...201020401757
maedi-visna virus infection in karayaka and amasya herik breed sheep from provinces in northern turkey.maedi-visna is an important virus infection of sheep having prolonged incubation period (slow disease) and reflecting two distinct forms clinically and pathologically. in this study, the presence of mvv was investigated serologically in 58 amasya herik sheep breed and 525 karayaka sheep breed. seropositivity rates in amasya herik sheep breed and karayaka sheep breed were detected as 69.0% and 18.5%, respectively. mvv antibodies were found in 137 of 583 serum samples (23.5%). positivity rates for ...201122065306
a study on ovine tick-borne hemoprotozoan parasites (theileria and babesia) in the east black sea region of turkey.in this study, the frequency of theileria and babesia species was assessed via reverse line blotting and blood smear-based diagnostic methods in small ruminants. a total of 201 apparently healthy animals from 26 randomly selected herds located in 4 locations (artvin, giresun, gumushane, and tokat) of east black sea region of turkey were investigated for the blood protozoans. in a polymerase chain reaction (pcr), the hypervariable v4 region of the 18s ribosomal rna gene was amplified with a set o ...201222231266
crimean-congo hemorrhagic fever virus in ticks collected from humans, livestock, and picnic sites in the hyperendemic region of turkey.abstract during june and july 2007, about 3125 adult ticks were collected from humans, animals, and vegetation in a hyperendemic region (sivas and tokat) of turkey. a total of 2193 ticks were pooled in 225 pools and screened for the crimean congo hemorrhagic fever virus (cchfv) presence by antigen-capture enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. infection rates were calculated as the maximum likelihood estimation with 95% confidence intervals (ci). the dominant tick species was found to be hyalomma ma ...201121736490
