The Potential Role of Migratory Birds in the Rapid Spread of Ticks and Tick-Borne Pathogens in the Changing Climatic and Environmental Conditions in Europe
TLDR
It was concluded that the prognosis of hazards posed by tick-borne pathogens should take into account changes in the migration of birds, hosts of many epidemiologically important tick species. Expand
Spotted fever group rickettsiae transmitted by Dermacentor ticks and determinants of their spread in Europe.
TLDR
The development of a strategy for tick control and the popularisation of knowledge concerning prophylaxis of tick-borne diseases is indispensable and the determinants of the presence of vectors and transmission of rickettsiae are focused on. Expand
Abnormal Development of Hyalomma Marginatum Ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) Induced by Plant Cytotoxic Substances
TLDR
The study demonstrates that cytotoxic compounds with an effect similar to that of colchicine can reduce tick populations and cause teratological changes, which were observed in the specimens found during field studies. Expand
Disease modeling of core pre-mRNA splicing factor haploinsufficiency
TLDR
RNA-Seq data support a model in which EFTUD2 haploinsufficiency leads to the mis-splicing of a distinct subset of pre-mRNAs with a widespread effect on gene expression, including altering the expression of ER stress response genes and genes involved in the development of the craniofacial region. Expand
Comparison of Skin Lesions Caused by Ixodes ricinus Ticks and Lipoptena cervi Deer Keds Infesting Humans in the Natural Environment
TLDR
Skin lesions induced by tick and deer ked bites in patients from recreational forest regions in southeastern Poland are presented and both species should be considered potential causative agents in the differential diagnosis of skin lesions when the patient has been bitten by an arthropod in autumn and winter months. Expand
Scabies and Pediculosis in Penitentiary Institutions in Poland—A Study of Ectoparasitoses in Confinement Conditions
TLDR
Education of prisoners could be a promising tool in prevention of scabies and pediculosis in correctional settings and the scale of the phenomenon in confinement conditions favouring the spread of these parasitoses is assessed. Expand
Host feeding behaviour of Dermacentor reticulatus males in relation to the transmission of pathogens.
TLDR
The host feeding behaviour of D. reticulatus males and their effective feeding suggest that they may play a role in transmission of pathogens and non-pathogenic microorganisms with tick saliva during blood meal ingestion. Expand
A unique phenomenon of oral-anal contact between ticks observed in two tick species Ixodes ricinus and Dermacentor reticulatus.
TLDR
It is suggested that interspecific contacts between ticks in natural conditions can contribute to the spread of some icroorganisms among different tick species and their hosts. Expand
Conspecific hyperparasitism in the Hyalomma excavatum tick and considerations on the biological and epidemiological implications of this phenomenon.
TLDR
It seems that parasitism of a tick on another conspecific specimen, when at least one of them is infected by a microorganism, may be a yet poorly explored route of transmission of pathogens or symbionts between the ticks. Expand
Tick Preventive Behaviors and Practices Adopted by Medical Students from Poland, Germany, and Thailand in Relation to Socio-Demographic Conditions and Their Knowledge of Ticks and Tick-Borne Diseases
TLDR
The insufficient practical implementation of tick prevention measures by the medical students suggests a need for verification of health education programs in schools as well as effective popularization and educational activities. Expand
