Occupational exposure to allergenic mites in a Polish zoo.
TLDR
It is stressed, that cages and run-offs of different mammals, aviaries of parrots and terrariums of snakes are important sources of some allergenic mites, especially A. farris and T. putrescentiae, that might cause allergies in workers. Expand
Detection of protozoans Babesia microti and Toxoplasma gondii and their co-existence in ticks (Acari: Ixodida) collected in Tarnogórski district (Upper Silesia, Poland).
TLDR
Demonstrating a high percentage of ticks collected from animals infected with Tg may indicate their important role in the transmission of this pathogen, but it requires a further studies. Expand
The risk of exposure to Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, Babesia sp. and co-infections in Ixodes ricinus ticks on the territory of Niepołomice forest (southern Poland).
TLDR
In Poland the problem of tick-borne diseases is a growing issue, therefore people residing in southern Polish touristic areas should be informed about the prevention and protection against ticks. Expand
Risk of exposure to ticks (Ixodidae) and the prevalence of tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) in ticks in Southern Poland.
TLDR
The results of this study show that TBEV pool prevalence in nymphs is low in accordance with the low number of TBE cases reported within the region. Expand
Occupational exposure to allergenic mites among workers of the Silesian Zoo
TLDR
The results revealed the occurrence of allergenic mites in the examined places in the Silesian Zoo and the strong and specific immune responses of zoo workers to various mite allergens. Expand
Preliminary study on the occurrence and species composition of astigmatic mites [Acari: Astigmata] in samples of dust, debris and residues from farming environments in Poland
252. Abstract: Twenty one samples of various materials (organic dust, litter, debris and residues) from farming environments (cowsheds, stables, barns, chaff-cutters, lofts, poultry houses and pigeonExpand
Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Babesia microti, Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, and Toxoplasma gondii in Ixodes ricinus (Acari, Ixodida) Ticks Collected from Slowinski National Park (Northern Poland)
TLDR
This work presents a large number of new parasites found in Sosnowiec, Poland, which have never been seen before in the wild and are thought to be new to Europe. Expand
Sensitization to the storage mite Tyrophagus putrescentiae in urban population of Upper Silesia (Poland).
TLDR
A new class of immunizing protein of about 25 kDa has been identified in excrements from TP reacting with IgE from patients showing allergy to other mite extracts, indicating significant discrepancy between so called standard allergy skin test and what the patient is actually sensitive to. Expand
Allergenic mites associated with bird nests in Poland (Astigmata: Pyroglyphidae, Acaridae, Glycyphagidae)
TLDR
The most important allergenic house dust and storage mites (Glycyphagus domesticus, Tyrophagus putrescentiae, Acarus siro, D. farinae) were found among the less abundant mite species. Expand
Some allergenic species of astigmatid mites (Acari, Acaridida) from different synanthropic environments in southern Poland
TLDR
Samples from zoological garden were actually analysed for the first time on the occurrence of allergenic mites and found the astigma- tid mites were most abundant in farming environments and constituted 67.4% of all mites collected. Expand
