Leishmania infantum leishmaniasis is endemic in south-east of France. The main goal of our study was to evaluate the real prevalence of asymptomatic carriage in dogs by means of real time quantitative PCR (qPCR) and serology. We included prospectively 140 military dogs wearing deltamethrine-impregnated collars. Parasitaemia levels were then measured by(More)
From 2006 to 2009 we screened 108 red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) and 894 wild boars (Sus scrofa) in Haut-Var, France for Trichinella britovi infection. Prevalences were 2.7 and 0% respectively. The fox may be considered a predictive sentinel for Trichinella in the Haut-Var ecosystem.
A one-step real time quantitative RT-PCR (qRT-PCR) assay was developed to detect all published Dugbe virus (DUGV) genomes of the Nairovirus genus. Primers and probes were designed to detect specific sequences on the most conserved regions of the S segment. The limit of detection of the assay was 10 copies per reaction which is an improvement of 3(More)
