Seven common wombats (Vombatus ursinus) were exposed and two of these were re-exposed to Sarcoptes scabiei var. wombati (Acari: Sarcoptidae). For wombats exposed for the first time, five exposed to 5,000 mites on their shoulder developed moderate to severe parakeratotic mange after 11 wk compared with two given 1,000 mites that developed mild clinical signs of mange after 11 wk. For re-exposed wombats, one of two given 5,000 mites developed mild parakeratotic mange and the other developed… Expand

TLDR
The cellular response in the dermis of common wombats with sarcoptic mange exhibited some typical aspects of an immune response to Sarcoptes scabiei, suggesting that some immune tolerance may develop with severe infections. Expand
The use of Cydectin® by wildlife carers to treat sarcoptic mange in free-ranging bare-nosed wombats (Vombatus ursinus).
TLDR
There is no best-fit for treating wombats in the field, due to individual differences in observed levels of sarcoptic mange severity and differences in wombat behavior, and scientific trials should be undertaken to determine the impact and efficacy of the varying treatment regimens. Expand
Sarcoptes scabiei: The Mange Mite with Mighty Effects on the Common Wombat (Vombatus ursinus)
TLDR
Through the most detailed behavioural observations of wombats, this study contributes to a broader understanding of how mange affects wombat health and abundance, and also to the understanding of the evolution of host responses to this parasite. Expand
Sarcoptic mange in southern hairy-nosed wombats (Lasiorhinus latifrons): distribution and prevalence in the Murraylands of South Australia.
TLDR
It is suggested that mange may have a significant effect on southern hairy-nosed wombats and outbreaks could result in the decline and/or possible extinction of small, isolated populations and population management initiatives, including suspending culling quotas in infected populations should thus be considered. Expand
Sarcoptes scabiei: an important exotic pathogen of wombats
TLDR
Sarcoptes scabiei is a parasitic astigmatid mite, which causes scabies in people and sarcoptic mange in mammals, and is capable of causing high morbidity and mortality rates in wombats. Expand
Primary and secondary experimental infestation of rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) with Sarcoptes scabiei from a wild rabbit: factors determining resistance to reinfestation.
Studies of sarcoptic mange and immunity are hampered by lack of mite sources and natural infestation models. We have investigated the clinical and pathological signs, specific IgG response andExpand
PHARMACOKINETICS OF MOXIDECTIN IN THE SOUTHERN HAIRY-NOSED WOMBAT (LASIORHINUS LATIFRONS)
TLDR
It is suggested that a single injection of 0.2 mg/kg moxidectin may not be sufficient to clear a mange infection in this species, and the peak plasma moxids concentration was higher than that seen in livestock species but the plasma elimination half-life was shorter. Expand
EFFECTS AND TREATMENT OF SARCOPTIC MANGE IN SOUTHERN HAIRY-NOSED WOMBATS (LASIORHINUS LATIFRONS)
TLDR
Investigation indicated substantial hyperplasia, hyperkeratosis, and fluid infiltration into the dermis and epidermis of diseased animals, and ivermectin effectively treated mild, but not severe, mange in wild SHNW and severeMange in captive animals. Expand
Fluralaner as a novel treatment for sarcoptic mange in the bare-nosed wombat (Vombatus ursinus): safety, pharmacokinetics, efficacy and practicable use
TLDR
Fluralaner appears to be a safe and efficacious treatment for sarcoptic mange in the bare-nosed wombat, with a single dose lasting over 1–3 months, and has economic and treatment-effort-related advantages over moxidectin, the most commonly used alternative. Expand
The taxonomy, life cycle and pathology of Sarcoptes scabiei and Notoedres cati (Acarina, Sarcoptidae): A review in a Fennoscandian wildlife perspective
TLDR
An overview of recent knowledge on the taxonomy, life cycles and pathology of these two mites, which are of relevance to Fennoscandian wildlife, is provided by considering knowledge on transmission vectors, host immunology, and some documented outbreaks. Expand

Diseases and parasites of the common wombat Vombatus ursinus in the Healesville area of Victoria
TLDR
Toxoplasmosis is reported in a wild wombat for the first time and the gross pathology and histopathology of severe sarcoptic mange due to S. scabiei is described. Expand
DISTRIBUTION OF LIFE CYCLE STAGES OF SARCOPTES SCABIEI VAR WOMBATI AND EFFECTS OF SEVERE MANGE ON COMMON WOMBATS IN VICTORIA
TLDR
Mite numbers and the severity of clinical signs, namely thickness of scale crust and the degree of alopecia, were correlated and were symmetrical on each side of the body. Expand
Clinical Picture and Antibody Response to Experimental Sarcoptes scabiei var. vulpes Infection in Red Foxes (Vulpes vulpes)
TLDR
Three red foxes were experimentally infected with Sarcoptes scabiei isolated from a naturally infected wild red fox, and two of the infected foxes developed severe sarcoptic mange, and one of these animals died on dpi 121. Expand
Sarcoptic mange in wombats.
TLDR
Intense pruritus, a characteristic sign of hypersensitivity reactions to Sarcoptes in humans and animals has been reported in wombats with sarcoptic mange. Expand
Crusted scabies: A molecular analysis of Sarcoptes scabiei variety hominis populations from patients with repeated infestations.
TLDR
Although the majority of recurrent scabies is probably due to reinfestation from inadequately treated contacts, there was evidence that in very severe crusted scabies, treatment with even 3 doses of ivermectin 14 days apart may be inadequate and relapse may occur. Expand
Density of itch mite, Sarcoptes scabiei (Acari: Sarcoptidae) and temporal development of cutaneous hypersensitivity in swine mange.
TLDR
Experimental infestations of Sarcoptes scabiei were established to study development of cutaneous hypersensitivity in pigs, and immediate responses developed sooner in low-dose pigs, suggesting that immediate hypersensitivity develops at a rate that is independent of rate of antigen exposure. Expand
RESPONSES OF RED FOXES TO FIRST AND SECOND INFECTION WITHSARCOPTES SCABIEI
TLDR
Pronounced mast cell hyperplasia and infiltration with eosinophils were the earliest inflammatory cell responses noted in biopsy samples from infected foxes and were maintained throughout infection. Expand
Current distribution of sarcoptic mange in wombats.
TLDR
Sarcoptic mange occurs in common wombats populations throughout the range of the common wombat including Tasmania and Flinders Island and has the potential to threaten the long-term survival of small, remnant populations. Expand
Experimental Infection of Dogs with Sarcoptes scabiei Derived from Naturally Infected Wild Red Foxes (Vulpes vulpes): Clinical Observations
TLDR
The experimentally induced Sarcoptes scabiei infections caused skin lesions typical of sarcoptic mange in dogs on recognized predilection sites and the incubation periods varied from 6 to 13 days depending on the mode of infection. Expand
The epizootiology and pathology of sarcoptic mange in coyotes, Canis latrans, from south Texas.
TLDR
Significant differences in prevalence of mange across habitat variables of host age and sex, and across seasons were related to the juvenile/adult ratio in the coyote population at any particular time because the infection progressed more rapidly in juveniles. Expand
