a serologic survey of mule deer and elk in utah.sera from mule deer (odocoileus hemionus) and elk (cervus canadensis) in central and northern utah were tested for the prevalence of antibodies to 11 diseases communicable to man or domestic livestock. antibodies to francisella tularensis (at 1:20) were found in 47 of 88 (53.4%) elk and 1 of 89 (1.1%) deer. a screening slide agglutination test for titers to brucella (at 1:20) showed two reactors in elk but none in deer sera. no positive antibody titers were obtained in tests for anaplasmosis, co ...1978105153

serologic survey for selected infectious disease agents in swift and kit foxes from the western united states.a serologic survey of swift fox (vulpes velox) and kit fox (v. macrotis) from the western usa was conducted for 12 infectious diseases. samples from swift fox were collected between 1987 and 1992 from colorado (n = 44), kansas (n = 10), and wyoming (n = 9). samples from kit fox were collected in california (n = 86), new mexico (n = 18), utah (n = 9), and arizona (n = 6). overall antibody prevalence rates were 33 of 110 (30%) for canine parvovirus (cpv), 9 of 72 (13%) for canine distemper virus ( ...200011085448
serologic survey for diseases in free-ranging coyotes (canis latrans) from two ecologically distinct areas of utah.the influence of habitat and associated prey assemblages on the prevalence of canine diseases in coyotes (canis latrans) has received scant attention. from december 1997 through december 1999, we captured 67 coyotes in two ecologically distinct areas of utah (usa): deseret land and livestock ranch and us army dugway proving ground. these areas differ in habitat and prey base. we collected blood samples and tested for evidence of various canine diseases. prevalence of antibodies against canine pa ...200312910777

multiple francisella tularensis subspecies and clades, tularemia outbreak, july 2007, a deer fly-associated outbreak of tularemia occurred in utah. human infections were caused by 2 clades (a1 and a2) of francisella tularensis subsp. tularensis. lagomorph carcasses from the area yielded evidence of infection with a1 and a2, as well as f. tularensis subsp. holarctica. these findings indicate that multiple subspecies and clades can cause disease in a localized outbreak of tularemia.200819046524
complete genome sequence of francisella philomiragia atcc 25017.francisella philomiragia is a saprophytic gammaproteobacterium found only occasionally in immunocompromised individuals and is the nearest neighbor to the causative agent of tularemia and category a select agent francisella tularensis. to shed insight into the key genetic differences and the evolution of these two distinct lineages, we sequenced the first complete genome of f. philomiragia strain atcc 25017, which was isolated as a free-living microorganism from water in bear river refuge, utah.201222628499
