pcr-based detection of theileria ovis in rhipicephalus bursa adult ticks.tick-borne diseases in ruminants are common in tropical and subtropical regions and lead to meat and milk production losses. in this study, polymerase chain reaction (pcr) was used to assess the presence of theileria ovis in rhipicephalus bursa ticks. we have demonstrated that the pcr enabled detection of t. ovis in field isolates of r. bursa collected from naturally infested sheep and goats in eastern turkey. the sampling was done in spring season (between may and june 2004). a total of 420 r. ...200616682122
determination of prevalence and risk factors for infection with babesia ovis in small ruminants from turkey by polymerase chain this study, pcr and thin blood smear-based diagnostic methods were used to assess the frequency of babesia infection in small ruminants. a total of 300 sheep and 100 goats from 37 randomly selected herds located in eight locations of eastern turkey were examined for the presence of babesia infection and any tick species on the body of the animals. of 400 blood samples examined, 6 (1.5%) were positive for babesia spp. piroplasms upon microscopic examination, whereas 33 (8.25%) were positive fo ...200717096146
[determination of tick species and treatment of cows, sheep and goats in the sivas-zara region].the purpose of this study was to examine tick infestation in cattle, sheep and goats in the zara-sivas region for one year and to determine the epizootiology of the tick species as well as to investigate treatment of the infested animals. tick infestation was detected in 71 (29.6%) out of 240 cattle, 66 (24.0%) out of 275 sheep and 50 (19.9%) out of 252 goats in the zara region. it has been shown that the tick infestation on cattle included haemaphysalis parva (33.8%), dermacentor marginatus (2. ...200617160854
detection of babesia ovis by pcr in rhipicephalus bursa collected from naturally infested sheep and goats.polymerase chain reaction (pcr) was used to assess the presence and the frequency of babesia ovis infection in the adult rhipicephalus bursa and their hosts in elazig province located in eastern turkey. tick and blood samples were collected from 32 sheep and 28 goats of four selected herds. a total of 226 r. bursa were randomly selected from the collected ticks and their salivary glands were dissected out in 0.85% saline under stereo microscope. dna amplification method revealed that the frequen ...200817881019
genetic analysis of the m rna segment of crimean-congo hemorrhagic fever virus strains in turkey.crimean-congo hemorrhagic fever (cchf) virus is member of the genus nairovirus of the family bunyaviridae. all members of the family bunyaviridae are enveloped viruses containing tripartite, negative polarity, single-stranded rna. cchf is characterized by high case mortality, occurring in asia, africa, the middle east and europe. during recent years, outbreaks have been reported in turkey. however, little information is available on the genetic diversity of cchf virus in turkey. in this study, a ...200817955162
seroprevalence of q fever (coxiellosis) in sheep from the southern marmara region, turkey.little information is available in turkey on q fever, a zoonose caused by coxiella burnetii and transmitted from domestic ruminants. this study aimed at investigating the seroprevalence in sheep flocks from three provinces (bursa, balikesir and canakkale). serosurvey was undertaken on 42 flocks, which were categorised by sizes. sera were collected randomly from specific age groups within the young population. chekit q-fever elisa kit was used to identify the infection in sheep. the results showe ...201018848356
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
