Serological evidence of infection with Coxiella burnetii was found in 41 (2%) of 1,951 domestic birds and in 167 (19%) of 863 wild birds from 17 and 5 prefectures in Japan, respectively, by microagglutination (MA) test. The bacteriological evidence of the infection was found in 17 (41%) of 41 domestic birds and 37 (22%) of 167 wild birds by the nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR). In addition, C. burnetii was isolated from five each of serum, spleen and fecal specimens from five jungle crows… Expand
Detection of Coxiella burnetii DNA in Peridomestic and Wild Animals and Ticks in an Endemic Region (Canary Islands, Spain).
TLDR
Results suggest that, in the Canary Islands, C. burnetii develops in a peridomestic rather than a wild cycle. Expand
Molecular investigation of the occurrence of Coxiella burnetii in wildlife and ticks in an endemic area.
TLDR
Investigation of the distribution of C. burnetii in the main wild species in the Basque Country (Northern Spain), such as carnivores, cervids, wild boar, lagomorphs and several species of birds showed that it circulates in wildlife in Spain participating in the cycle of Q fever in nature. Expand
Coxiella burnetii in ticks and wild birds.
TLDR
The places of wild bird stopover in Russia and in Bulgaria proved to be natural foci of C. burnetii infection and are likely to act as efficient "vehicles" in dispersal of the pathogen over Europe by both birds. Expand
Molecular epidemiology of Coxiella burnetii in human, animals and ticks in Bangladesh
TLDR
It is observed that this is the first time the presence of C. burnetii in ticks using real time PCR is reported. Expand

TLDR
In this review, the epidemiology of the disease along with some characteristics of isolates of C. burnetii in Japan is summarized in five sections, i.e., coxiellosis, Q fever, modes of spread of the infection, laboratory diagnosis of the infected person and some characteristic of Japanese isolates. Expand
Diversity and global distribution of the Coxiella intracellular bacterium in seabird ticks.
TLDR
The potential epidemiological significance of the presence of Coxiella in seabird ticks is discussed, and it is suggested that these organisms may not be pathogenic forms, but rather behave as endosymbionts engaged in intricate interactions with their tick hosts. Expand

TLDR
According to a rough estimate, nearly a quarter of a billion migratory birds fly through the island during the two periods of migration, thus supporting the role of the island as a stopover of great importance. Expand
Rickettsiae of spotted fever group, Borrelia valaisiana, and Coxiella burnetii in ticks on passerine birds and mammals from the Camargue in the south of France.
TLDR
The presence of emerging zoonotic bacteria in ticks collected from passerine birds and mammals present in the Camargue, in the south of France, is analyzed to detect Candidatus Ri. Expand

Seroepidemiologic survey in Thailand of Coxiella burnetii infection in cattle and chickens and presence in ticks attached to dairy cattle.
TLDR
Results indicated that infestation of C. burnetii among cattle and chickens is considerably low in Thailand, and coxiella DNA was detected in two of 102 engorged Rhipicephalus microplus ticks attached to dairy cattle. Expand

SURVEY OF Q-FEVER AGGLUTININS IN BIRDS AND SMALL RODENTS IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, 1975–76 1
TLDR
Serum samples from 15 species of rodents and 33 species of birds were tested for agglutinins against Coxiella burnetii by the microagglutination test and there was a tendency for the seropositive animals to have been collected in the vicinity of endemically infected livestock. Expand
Isolation of Coxiella burnetii from Dairy Cattle and Ticks, and Some Characteristics of the Isolates in Japan
TLDR
The results of isolation suggested a high prevalence of Coxiella infection in dairy cattle with reproductive problems in Japan and 12 strains suggested that these strains are associated with an acute form of Q fever. Expand
Prevalence of antibodies to Coxiella burnetii in Japan
TLDR
Antibody prevalence was high for healthy humans living in close contact with animals (e.g., veterinarians and meat-processing workers), and the rates differed forhealthy humans and respiratory-disorder patients. Expand
Q-fever Antibodies in Birds 1
TLDR
Serum samples were obtained from 307 birds collected on a sheep range and a nearby dairy farm in northern California and the birds with the highest antibody prevalence were the carrion eating birds and those birds that live and feed in close proximity to infected livestock. Expand
Serological Evidence that the Q Fever Agent (Coxiella burnetii) Has Spread Widely among Dairy Cattle of Japan
TLDR
The results suggest an increase in the number of infected cows with C. burnetii in Japan since 1954, and imply the possibility of the prevalence of acute Q fever in the human population, which had been underestimated and undiagnosed for the last three decades. Expand
[The behavior of the Q-fever agent, Coxiella burnetii, in birds. 3. Experimental infection of quail].
TLDR
In the majority of birds agglutinating antibodies could be demonstrated from the 18th day up to termination of the experiment 66 days after infection, and C. burnetii was found in various organs up to 21 days after infections. Expand
Retrospective survey of chronic Q fever in Japan by using PCR to detect Coxiella burnetii DNA in paraffin-embedded clinical samples
TLDR
PCR was used to detect Coxiella burnetii DNA in paraffin-embedded tissues obtained from patients with chronic endocarditis in which the etiological agent had been unknown, and five samples from four patients were found to be positive. Expand
Sero-epidemiology of Q-fever in poultry.
TLDR
The sero-epidemiology of Q-fever was studied by capillary agglutination test at 25 poultry farms in the Nainital and Ajmer districts of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan and the breed difference and comparatively high infection rates in poultry attendants of a Q-Fever-positive farm are discussed. Expand
Isolation of a Coxiella burnetii Strain That Has Low Virulence for Mice from a Patient with Acute Q Fever
TLDR
The isolated strain, named TK‐1, caused no symptoms in ddY and BALB/c mice except when the mice were treated with cyclophosphamide and was identified by electron microscopic morphology and indirect fluorescent antibody test with convalescent‐phase serum. Expand
A heat shock operon in Coxiella burnetti produces a major antigen homologous to a protein in both mycobacteria and Escherichia coli
TLDR
A gene library from the DNA of Coxiella burnetii has been constructed in the cosmid vector pHC79, and a particular clone reacted strongly withcoxiella-specific antibodies elicited in a number of different species of animals, suggesting it may serve as an efficacious vaccine against C. burningetii and other pathogenic microorganisms that express the conserved antigen.
