We investigated the transmission dynamics of a community of tick-borne pathogenic bacteria in a common European songbird (Parus major). Tick-naïve birds were infested with three successive batches (spaced 5 days apart) of field-collected Ixodes ricinus nymphs, carrying the following tick-borne bacteria: Rickettsia helvetica (16.9%), Borrelia garinii (1.9%), Borrelia miyamotoi (1.6%), Anaplasma phagocytophilum (1.2%) and Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis (0.4%). Fed ticks were screened for the pathogens after moulting to the next developmental phase...

Very little is known about the diseases affecting the Darwin's fox (Lycalopex fulvipes), which is considered to be one of the most endangered carnivores worldwide. Blood samples of 30 foxes captured on Chiloé Island (Chile) were tested with a battery of PCR assays targeting the following pathogens: Ehrlichia/Anaplasma sp., Rickettsia sp., Bartonella sp., Coxiella burnetti, Borrelia sp., Mycoplasma sp., Babesia sp., Hepatozoon canis, Hepatozoon felis, Leishmania donovani complex, and Filariae. Analysis of the 16S rRNA gene revealed the presence of Mycoplasma spp...

Trench fever, cause by Bartonella quintana, disappeared decades ago. Between 1992 and 1994 about 20 cases were reported in industrialized countries [6, 7]. Some of these cases were associated with HIV infection [5], but most affected the homeless. The epidemiology of B. quintana is unknown in Europe, but infection and transmission are favoured by poor housing and hygiene. This paper describes the results of a seroprevalence survey among the homeless living in Marseille. The eight major non-profit organizations caring for the homeless in the city participated for the four winter months...

Purified Coxiella burnetii (Nine Mile, phase I) ricketssiae were exposed to a synthetic peptide (CAP37(20-44)) based on the amino acid sequence of CAP37--a 37 K human neutrophil granule-associated cationic antimicrobial protein--and their capacity to infect L929 mouse fibroblast cells was assessed during a 10-day post-exposure period. Because the parasite thrives within the acidic phagolysosome we anticipated that CAP37(20-44) would have no adverse effect on the organism. This was borne out by the experiments; however, to our surprise, treated C...
