potential mosquito (diptera:culicidae) vector of dirofilaria repens and dirofilaria immitis in urban areas of eastern slovakia.this paper follows the study from 2013 focused on the molecular screening of mosquitoes as vectors of dirofilaria spp. which provided the information on aedes vexans as a potential vector of dirofilaria repens in slovakia. current entomological and molecular research indicates that ae. vexans can participate also in the transmission of dirofilaria immitis within the region. using the standard pcr method, we examined 10,500 mosquitoes (ae. vexans, ae. rossicus, anopheles maculipennis s.l., ochler ...201526391170
detection of dirofilaria repens and dirofilaria immitis dna in mosquitoes from belarus.during the last two decades, belarus faces an increase of human cases of dirofilaria (nematoda, spirurida, onchocercidae) infections. however, comprehensive analyses explaining this development and the identification of mosquito vector species are missing. here, we present results using temperature data from belarus and show that the annual number of human dirofilaria cases is significantly correlated with the yearly average temperatures (spearman's rho = 0.49, p < 0.05) and the average sum of p ...201627169723
