spotted fever group rickettsiae in ticks in two surveys conducted from march 1999 to march 2001 and from january 2004 to december 2006, a total of 3,950 ticks (belonging to ten different species) were collected from seven domestic and wild animals (goat, sheep, cattle, dog, fox, hare, and mouflon) from different localities throughout cyprus. in order to establish their infection rate with spotted fever rickettsiae (sfg), ticks were pooled and tested by polymerase chain reaction targeting glta and ompa genes, followed by sequencing anal ...201121833539
detection of rickettsia hoogstraalii, rickettsia helvetica, rickettsia massiliae, rickettsia slovaca and rickettsia aeschlimannii in ticks from sardinia, italy.tick-borne diseases represent a large proportion of infectious diseases that have become a world health concern. the presence of rickettsia spp. was evaluated by standard pcr and sequencing in 123 ticks collected from several mammals and vegetation in sardinia, italy. this study provides the first evidence of the presence of rickettsia hoogstralii in haemaphysalis punctata and haemaphysalis sulcata ticks from mouflon and rickettsia helvetica in ixodes festai ticks from hedgehog. in addition, ric ...201728110915
rickettsia slovaca from dermacentor marginatus ticks in sardinia, italy.nineteen ticks belonging to the species dermacentor marginatus, rhipicephalus bursa, and haemaphysalis sulcata were collected from wild animals (wild boar, deer, and mouflon) in south-western sardinia, italy. five d. marginatus ticks from wild boar were pcr-positive when analyzed using glta-specific and ompa-specific primers, leading to the identification and first isolation in cell culture of rickettsia slovaca, the causative agent of tick-borne lymphadenopathy (tibola), on the island of sardin ...201223140897
development of three quantitative real-time pcr assays for the detection of rickettsia raoultii, rickettsia slovaca, and rickettsia aeschlimannii and their validation with ticks from the country of georgia and the republic of azerbaijan.a previous surveillance study of human pathogens within ticks collected in the country of georgia showed a relatively high infection rate for rickettsia raoultii, r. slovaca, and r. aeschlimannii. these 3 spotted fever group rickettsiae are human pathogens: r. raoultii and r. slovaca cause tick-borne lymphadenopathy (tibola), and r. aeschlimannii causes an infection characterized by fever and maculopapular rash. three quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qpcr) assays, rraoul, rslov, ...201223182543
