Rickettsia typhi infection in a clinically-ill dog from Houston, Texas


By: N. Juhasz n, J. Wilson n, K. Haney n, M. Clark*, A. Davenport*, E. Breitschwerdt n, B. Qurollo n

author keywords: Dog; Rickettsia typhi; Murine typhus; North America
MeSH headings : Animals; Dog Diseases / diagnosis; Dog Diseases / drug therapy; Dogs; Doxycycline / therapeutic use; Polymerase Chain Reaction / veterinary; Rickettsia typhi; Texas; Typhus, Endemic Flea-Borne / diagnosis; Typhus, Endemic Flea-Borne / drug therapy; Typhus, Endemic Flea-Borne / veterinary
TL;DR: In 2020, Rickettsia typhi was diagnosed in a dog from Houston, Texas, USA based upon R. typhi IFA seroreactivity in both acute and convalescent sera, and PCR with DNA sequencing of 4 different gene regions, all of which were 100% identical to R. Typhi. (via Semantic Scholar)

Evaluation of a commercial microbial enrichment kit used prior DNA extraction to improve the molecular detection of vector-borne pathogens from naturally infected dogs


By: K. Oney*, M. Koo*, C. Roy*, S. Ren*, B. Qurollo n, N. Juhasz n, E. Vasconcelos*, B. Oakley*, P. Diniz*

author keywords: Tick-borne disease; 16S rRNA gene; Next-generation sequencing; Real-time PCR; MolYsis; Anaplasma phagocytophilum; Ehrlichia ewingii; Microbial community; DNA extraction
MeSH headings : Anaplasma / genetics; Anaplasma phagocytophilum; Animals; Bacteria / genetics; DNA, Bacterial / isolation & purification; DNA, Protozoan / isolation & purification; Dog Diseases / diagnosis; Dogs; Ehrlichia / genetics; High-Throughput Nucleotide Sequencing; Microbiota; Polymerase Chain Reaction; RNA, Ribosomal, 16S / genetics; RNA, Ribosomal, 18S / genetics; Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction; Tick-Borne Diseases; Vector Borne Diseases / diagnosis; Vector Borne Diseases / microbiology; Vector Borne Diseases / parasitology
TL;DR: Results from the three molecular methods suggest that the microbial concentrating kit did not improve the detection of VBPs, although significantly reduced the presence of host DNA. (via Semantic Scholar)

By: J. Wilson n, E. Breitschwerdt n, N. Juhasz n, H. Marr n, J. Galvao n, C. Pratt n, B. Qurollo n

MeSH headings : Animals; Dog Diseases / epidemiology; Dogs; Phylogeny; Rickettsia / genetics; Rickettsia Infections / epidemiology; Rickettsia Infections / veterinary; United States / epidemiology
TL;DR: Multilocus phylogenetic analysis showed the dogs were infected with a novel Rickettsia species related to humanRickettsia pathogens. (via Semantic Scholar)
