prevalence of bartonella infection in wild african lions (panthera leo) and cheetahs (acinonyx jubatus).bartonella species are emerging pathogens that have been isolated worldwide from humans and other mammals. our objective was to estimate the prevalence of bartonella infection in free-ranging african lions (panthera leo) and cheetahs (acinonyx jubatus). blood and/or serum samples were collected from a convenience sample of 113 lions and 74 cheetahs captured in africa between 1982 and 2002. whole blood samples available from 58 of the lions and 17 of the cheetahs were cultured for evidence of bar ...200415135511
isolation of bartonella henselae, bartonella koehlerae subsp. koehlerae, bartonella koehlerae subsp. bothieri and a new subspecies of b. koehlerae from free-ranging lions (panthera leo) from south africa, cheetahs (acinonyx jubatus) from namibia and captive cheetahs from california.bartonellae are blood- and vector-borne gram-negative bacteria, recognized as emerging pathogens. whole-blood samples were collected from 58 free-ranging lions (panthera leo) in south africa and 17 cheetahs (acinonyx jubatus) from namibia. blood samples were also collected from 11 cheetahs (more than once for some of them) at the san diego wildlife safari park. bacteria were isolated from the blood of three (5%) lions, one (6%) namibian cheetah and eight (73%) cheetahs from california. the lion ...201627453220
