Serological and molecular analysis of feline vector-borne anaplasmosis and ehrlichiosis using species-specific peptides and PCR

Parasites & Vectors, 8(1), 320.

By: B. Hegarty n, B. Qurollo n, B. Thomas n, K. Park n, R. Chandrashekar*, M. Beall*, B. Thatcher*, E. Breitschwerdt n

author keywords: Anaplasma; Borrelia; Ehrlichia; Cats; Vector-borne pathogens
MeSH headings : Anaplasma / genetics; Anaplasma / immunology; Anaplasma / isolation & purification; Anaplasmosis / blood; Anaplasmosis / diagnosis; Anaplasmosis / microbiology; Animals; Antibodies, Bacterial / blood; Cat Diseases / blood; Cat Diseases / diagnosis; Cat Diseases / microbiology; Cats; Ehrlichia / genetics; Ehrlichia / immunology; Ehrlichia / isolation & purification; Ehrlichiosis / blood; Ehrlichiosis / diagnosis; Ehrlichiosis / microbiology; Ehrlichiosis / veterinary; Female; Male; Peptides / genetics; Polymerase Chain Reaction; Prospective Studies; Species Specificity
TL;DR: This study provides the first evidence for E.chaffeensis and E.ewingii infection in naturally-exposed cats in North America and supports the need for regional, serological and molecular FVBP prevalence studies, and the need to further optimize serodiagnostic and PCR testing for cats.
