Detection of haemoparasites in cattle by reverse line blot hybridisation with a note on the distribution of ticks in Sicily.
Simultaneous detection of Anaplasma and Ehrlichia species in ruminants and detection of Ehrlichia ruminantium in Amblyomma variegatum ticks by reverse line blot hybridization.
Equine and Canine Anaplasma phagocytophilum Strains Isolated on the Island of Sardinia (Italy) Are Phylogenetically Related to Pathogenic Strains from the United States
Phylogenetic analysis revealed that Sardinian strains are genetically distinct from the two lineages previously described in Europe and are closely related to strains isolated in different areas of the United States.

Literature on DNA extraction methods, PCR protocols, primers and probes, which are in use for the successful detection and identification of pathogens in ticks, are critically reviewed.
Poultry red mite (Dermanyssus gallinae) infestation: a broad impact parasitological disease that still remains a significant challenge for the egg-laying industry in Europe
It is concluded that effective and sustainable treatment approach to control poultry red mite infestation is urgently required, included integrated pest management.
Should the poultry red mite Dermanyssus gallinae be of wider concern for veterinary and medical science?
Although reported cases of D. gallinae infesting mammals are relatively rare, when coupled with the reported genetic plasticity of this species and evidence of permanent infestations on non-avian hosts, potential for host-expansion may exist, it is concluded that further research should be urgently conducted to confirm the full extent of the threat posed to the veterinary and medical sectors.

Polymerase chain reaction performed on the Rhipicephalus sanguineus ticks collected from those dogs showed that they were also infected with A. platys and there was no correlation between infection status and age or breed of the dogs.
