Wild ungulates as Babesia hosts in northern and central Italy.
TLDR
The sequence analysis showed that the roe deer is a susceptible host for several piroplasms belonging both to Babesia and Theileria species, which means that ecological changes in progress cause the increase of both the deer species and the vector tick populations. Expand
Tick reservoirs for piroplasms in central and northern Italy.
TLDR
Novel tick/pathogen associations were detected, suggesting that certain tick species (such as Hy. marginatum, R. sanguineus and I. ricinus) are vector of more piroplasm species than previously thought. Expand
The inhibition of Candida albicans by selected essential oils and their major components
TLDR
The in-vitro inhibiting activity of some essential oils and their main constituents against a strain of Candida albicans is evaluated and β-phellandrene proved to be the most interesting component among cyclic monoterpenic hydrocarbons as it showed a strong activity. Expand
Detection of Babesia EU1 in Ixodes ricinus ticks in northern Italy.
TLDR
The finding that also in northern Italy the tick population is carrying Babesia EU1 suggests a wide geographical spreading of this zoonotic pathogen in Europe. Expand
PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATIONS OF DISEASE-CAUSING ORGANISMS IN THE WHITE-CLAWED CRAYFISH AUSTROPOTAMOBIUS PALLIPES COMPLEX FROM STREAMS OF NORTHERN ITALY
TLDR
Mortalities occurred in two tanks, after 2 and 4 weeks respectively, in the adult crayfish coming from Bidente River utilized for breeding, with approximately a 23.5% cumulative mortality rate. Expand
Anaplasma phagocytophilum in ticks from parks in the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy.
TLDR
Evidence of the circulation of A. phagocytophilum in ticks in three parks of the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy is provided and the possible involvement of wild ruminants is indicated. Expand
New insights into the epidemiology of bovine piroplasmoses in Italy.
TLDR
It is suggested that different species of piroplasms are circulating in bovine populations in Central and Northern Italy, and provide new insights into the complex epidemiology of bovines piroPLasmoses in Italy. Expand
Italian wolves (Canis lupus italicus Altobello, 1921) and molecular detection of taeniids in the Foreste Casentinesi National Park, Northern Italian Apennines
TLDR
The results show that the taeniid fauna found in wolves from the Foreste Casentinesi National Park is comparable to that described for other domestic and wild Italian canids and provides insights into the wolves’ diet and their relationship with the environment. Expand
Molecular characterization of Cryptosporidium spp. from foals in Italy.
TLDR
Sequences of the gp60 gene of Cryptosporidium horse genotype allowed identification of the subtype family VIaA15G4, defining a novel microsatellite pattern within horse subtype VIa. Expand
Detection and molecular characterization of Theileria sp. in fallow deer (Dama dama) and ticks from an Italian natural preserve.
TLDR
Interestingly, the phylogenetical analyses evidenced differences between the Theileria strain from Mesola wood and the ones isolated in fallow deer from other Italian areas. Expand
