2008 journal article

Cytauxzoon felis infections are present in bobcats (Lynx rufus) in a region where cytauxzoonosis is not recognized in domestic cats

VETERINARY PARASITOLOGY, 153(1-2), 126–130.

By: A. Birkenheuer n, H. Marr n, C. Warren n, A. Acton n, E. Mucker*, J. Humphreys*, M. Tucker n

author keywords: cytauxzoonosis; piroplasmosis; Cytauxzoon felis; bobcats; PCR; tick
MeSH headings : Animals; Cat Diseases / epidemiology; Cat Diseases / parasitology; Cats; Eukaryota / classification; Eukaryota / isolation & purification; Lynx / parasitology; North Carolina / epidemiology; Pennsylvania / epidemiology; Protozoan Infections, Animal / epidemiology; Protozoan Infections, Animal / parasitology
TL;DR: This study indicates the potential for C. felis infections in domestic cats in the northeastern USA if the appropriate tick vectors are present and Veterinary practitioners in PA should be on alert for cytauxzoonosis in domestic Cats. (via Semantic Scholar)

2007 journal article

The detection of Cytauxzoon felis in apparently healthy free-roaming cats in the USA

VETERINARY PARASITOLOGY, 146(3-4), 316–320.

By: M. Haber n, M. Tucker n, H. Marr n, J. Levy*, J. Burgess*, M. Lappin*, A. Birkenheuer n

author keywords: Cytauxzoonosis; PCR; free-roaming; survival; hyperendemic
MeSH headings : Animals; Carrier State; Cat Diseases / epidemiology; Cat Diseases / parasitology; Cats; Female; Male; Piroplasmida; Protozoan Infections, Animal / epidemiology; Protozoan Infections, Animal / parasitology; United States / epidemiology
TL;DR: Despite the low prevalence rate, the presence of apparently healthy infected free-roaming cats suggests that they may have the capacity to serve as an additional reservoir host for C. felis. (via Semantic Scholar)

2007 journal article

The identification of a genetically unique piroplasma in North American river otters (Lontra canadensis)

PARASITOLOGY, 134(5), 631–635.

By: A. Birkenheuer n, C. Harms n, J. Neel n, H. Marr n, M. Tucker n, A. Acton n, A. Tuttle n, M. Stoskopf n

Contributors: A. Birkenheuer n, C. Harms n, J. Neel n, H. Marr n, M. Tucker n, A. Acton n, A. Tuttle n, M. Stoskopf n

author keywords: Babesia; North American river otter; PCR; phylogenetics
MeSH headings : Animals; Babesia / genetics; Babesia / isolation & purification; Base Sequence; Molecular Sequence Data; North America; Otters / parasitology; Phylogeny; RNA, Protozoan / genetics; RNA, Ribosomal, 18S / genetics; Rivers
TL;DR: It is indicated that the prevalence of piroplasma in North Carolina otters is quite high and the pathogenic potential of this organism for otters or other species remains unknown. (via Semantic Scholar)

2006 journal article

Cytauxzoon felisinfection in cats in the mid-Atlantic states: 34 cases (1998–2004)

Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 228(4), 568–571.

By: A. Birkenheuer n, J. Le*, A. Valenzisi*, M. Tucker*, M. Levy* & E. Breitschwerdt*

MeSH headings : Animals; Base Sequence; Cat Diseases / diagnosis; Cat Diseases / epidemiology; Cats; Diagnosis, Differential; Female; Geography; Male; North Carolina / epidemiology; Piroplasmida / isolation & purification; Piroplasmida / pathogenicity; Protozoan Infections, Animal / diagnosis; Protozoan Infections, Animal / epidemiology; RNA, Protozoan / genetics; RNA, Ribosomal / genetics; RNA, Ribosomal, 18S / genetics; Retrospective Studies; Seasons; Sequence Homology, Nucleic Acid; South Carolina / epidemiology; Virginia / epidemiology
TL;DR: Data indicate that veterinarians in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States should consider C. felis infection in cats that become ill with fever, icterus, and pancytopenia or bicy topenia, especially in the spring and summer months. (via Semantic Scholar)
