Reptiles, amphibians, and human Salmonella infection: a population-based, case-control study.
To estimate the burden of reptile- and amphibian-associated Salmonella infections, we conducted 2 case-control studies of human salmonellosis occurring during 1996-1997. The studies took place at 5Expand

Rochalimaea henselae infection. A new zoonosis with the domestic cat as reservoir.
OBJECTIVE To determine the reservoir and vector(s) for Rochalimaea henselae, a causative agent of bacillary angiomatosis (BA) and cat scratch disease, and to estimate the percentage of domestic catsExpand

Experimental transmission of Bartonella henselae by the cat flea.
Bartonella henselae is an emerging bacterial pathogen, causing cat scratch disease and bacillary angiomatosis. Cats bacteremic with B. henselae constitute a large reservoir from which humans becomeExpand

A family of variably expressed outer-membrane proteins (Vomp) mediates adhesion and autoaggregation in Bartonella quintana.
Bartonella species are fastidious, Gram-negative human pathogens that can persist in the host bloodstream for years and bind to and invade several types of host cells. For many pathogens, adhesion toExpand

Bacillary angiomatosis and bacillary peliosis in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus.
Drs. Koehler and Tappero have extensively reviewed the problem of rochalimaea infection in persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1). Species of this genus cause trench feverExpand
