A NEW SPECIES OF CYTAUXZOON FROM PALLAS' CATS CAUGHT IN MONGOLIA AND COMMENTS ON THE SYSTEMATICS AND TAXONOMY OF PIROPLASMIDS
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of the parasite DNA sequences obtained from the 3 Pallas' cats to other piroplasms revealed a sister group relationship to C. felis, and phylogenetic analyses revealed several taxonomic problems that have impeded the development of a classification that accurately reflects evolutionary history of piroPLasms. Expand
Detection of Babesia gibsoni and the canine small Babesia 'Spanish isolate' in blood samples obtained from dogs confiscated from dogfighting operations.
TLDR
It is suggested that dogs with a history of fighting should be evaluated for infection with B gibsoni, which is a common parasite of dogs confiscated from dogfighting operations. Expand
There are at least three genetically distinct small piroplasms from dogs.
TLDR
The 18S nuclear subunit ribosomal RNA (18S rRNA) gene of small piroplasms isolated from dogs from Okinawa (Japan), Oklahoma, North Carolina, Indiana, Missouri, and Alabama, was isolated and sequenced and suggested that there are multiple small piraplasm species in dogs. Expand
Confirmation of Amblyomma americanum (Acari: Ixodidae) as a Vector for Cytauxzoon felis (Piroplasmorida: Theileriidae) to Domestic Cats
TLDR
Amblyomma americanum was confirmed as a competent vector in the transmission of Cytauxzoon felis to domestic cats and the eitiologic agent's presence was confirmed. Expand
Cats surviving natural infection with Cytauxzoon felis: 18 cases (1997-1998).
TLDR
The findings of this study may indicate the existence of a less virulent strain of C felis, which was previously unknown. Expand
An Intraerythrocytic Small Piroplasm In Wild-caught Pallas's Cats (Otocolobus manul) from Mongolia
During the quarantine examination of four Pallas's cats (Otocolobus manul) imported from Mongolia in October and December 2000, intraerythrocytic piroplasms were detected on Wright-Giemsa stainedExpand
Platelet size, platelet surface-associated IgG, and reticulated platelets in dogs with immune-mediated thrombocytopenia.
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that sample age and time of sampling during disease affect interpretation of platelet parameters in dogs with IMT. Expand
Transmission of Cytauxzoon felis to a domestic cat by Amblyomma americanum.
TLDR
Cytauxzoon felis infection from one domestic cat to another indicates that domestic cats subclinically infected with C. felis may be a reservoir of infection for naive domestic cats. Expand
Quantification of hepatic and renal cortical echogenicity in clinically normal cats.
TLDR
Quantitative determination of hepatic and renal cortical echogenicity in cats is feasible, using histogram analysis, and may be useful for early detection of diffuse parenchymal disease and for serially evaluating disease progression. Expand
Canine Distemper Virus Strains Circulating among North American Dogs
TLDR
Seven samples from dogs with CD from the United States during 2007 formed large, multinucleated syncytia in a Vero cell line expressing canine signaling lymphocyte activation molecule (SLAM), and both CDV groups were genetically different from the current vaccine strains. Expand
