echinococcus multilocularis identified in indiana, ohio, and east-central illinois.echinococcus multilocularis was identified in a coyote in indiana in january 1990. subsequently, 300 wild canids (red foxes, gray foxes, coyotes) were collected from indiana, ohio, illinois, michigan, and kentucky and examined for this parasite. of these, 41 (13.7%) were infected with e. multilocularis. infected animals were from northern and central indiana, northwestern ohio, and east-central illinois. twenty-nine of 162 (17.9%) animals from northern and central indiana were positive, versus 0 ...19938459347
biochemical, biological, and genetic characterization of a sylvatic isolate of trichinella.biological, biochemical, and genetic relationships of trichinella isolates were assessed and compared from 3 species of illinois fur-bearing mammals. tongue muscle collected from 1987 through 1989 from 323 raccoons (procyon lotor), 9 red fox (vulpes fulva), and 1 coyote (canis latrans) were digested and trichinella muscle larval prevalences and mean intensities (larvae/g) determined. the prevalence and mean intensity of tongue muscle-stage larvae were 2.8% and 44.4% and 326 and 2 larvae/g for ra ...19938501590
distribution and prevalence of echinococcus multilocularis in wild predators in nebraska, kansas, and further determine the distribution and prevalence of echinococcus multilocularis in the central united states, 245 wild canids (125 red foxes, 120 coyotes) and 33 bobcats were collected from nebraska, kansas, and wyoming and examined for this parasite. animals examined included 11 red foxes from the western panhandle of nebraska; 5 red foxes and 30 coyotes from southern nebraska; 56 red foxes and 1 coyote from northeastern nebraska; 20 red foxes, 63 coyotes, and 13 bobcats from northern kansa ...200212054030
canine heartworms in coyotes in illinois.canine heartworm (dirofilaria immitis) disease affects wild canids and may be a factor impacting the health and population dynamics of coyotes (canis latrans). coyotes may serve also as a potential reservoir for transmission of these parasites to domestic dogs. we investigated 920 coyotes harvested by hunters and trappers throughout illinois (usa) from 1995-1997. the objectives of the study were to: 1) survey the regional prevalence and intensity of heartworms in coyotes in illinois, 2) determin ...200314567221
echinococcus multilocularis identified in michigan with additional records from ohio.echinococcus multilocularis was identified in a coyote in indiana in january 1990, prompting an investigation of the distribution and prevalence of the parasite in wild canids in indiana and surrounding states. in 1990-1991, the parasite was found throughout northern and central indiana, in northwestern ohio, and in east-central illinois. in 1993-1994, 162 wild canids (97 red foxes, 54 coyotes, 11 gray foxes) were collected from michigan, and an additional 75 (55 red foxes, 7 coyotes, 13 gray fo ...201222339082
using an emergency department syndromic surveillance system to evaluate reporting of potential rabies exposures, illinois, 2013-2015.mandatory reporting of potential rabies exposures and initiation of postexposure prophylaxis (pep) allow local health authorities to monitor pep administration for errors. our objectives were to use an emergency department (ed) syndromic surveillance system to (1) estimate reporting compliance for exposure to rabies in suburban cook county, illinois, and (2) initiate interventions to improve reporting and reassess compliance.201728692394
