molecular detection of zoonotic tick-borne pathogens from ticks collected from ruminants in four south african provinces.ticks carry and transmit a remarkable array of pathogens including bacteria, protozoa and viruses, which may be of veterinary and/or of medical significance. with little to no information regarding the presence of tick-borne zoonotic pathogens or their known vectors in southern africa, the aim of our study was to screen for anaplasma phagocytophilum, borrelia burgdorferi, coxiella burnetii, rickettsia species and ehrlichia ruminantium in ticks collected and identified from ruminants in the easte ...201526227797
occurrence of <i>coxiella burnetii</i>, <i>ehrlichia canis</i>, <i>rickettsia</i> species and <i>anaplasma phagocytophilum</i>-like bacterium in ticks collected from dogs and cats in south africa.ticks are major vectors of arthropod-borne infections and transmit a wide variety of zoonotic pathogens. this study was conducted mainly to determine the occurrence of canine tick-borne bacterial and rickettsial pathogens especially those with zoonotic potential. we examined 276 rhipicephalus sanguineus, 38 haemaphysalis elliptica and 4 amblyomma hebraeum ticks from 90 dogs and 4 cats from the free state, kwazulu-natal, north west and mpumalanga provinces. dna of coxiella burnetii (41%), ehrlich ...201728582983
