A survey of the German mosquito fauna (Diptera: Culicidae) and identification of associated pathogens
Anopheles daciae, a newly described member of the Maculipennis Group of the culicid genus Anopheles was recently reported from western, southern and eastern Europe. Before its recognition, it had
Is molecular xenomonitoring of mosquitoes for Dirofilaria repens suitable for dirofilariosis surveillance in endemic regions?
Evaluating PCR xenomonitoring of mosquitoes as a tool for dirofilariosis surveillance in Poland found the efficiency of the approach on territories where the prevalence of the disease among definitive hosts is lower than 12 % remains unknown.
No evidence of Dirofilaria repens infection in red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) and raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides) from Brandenburg, Germany
Red foxes and raccoon dogs are well-known wildlife reservoirs for zoonotic diseases and potentially susceptible to Dirofilaria infections, but D. repens-specific DNA could not be amplified from the lungs of red foxes nor from the lung of raccoondogs, suggesting a limited role if a role at all in the natural transmission cycle of D.repens.
The Anopheles maculipennis complex (Diptera: Culicidae) in Germany: an update following recent monitoring activities
In Germany, the occurrence and geographic distribution of the complex species have recently been updated within the framework of a national monitoring programme and the newly described sibling species Anopheles daciae was demonstrated.
Vector-borne pathogens in dogs and red foxes from the federal state of Brandenburg, Germany.
A systematic assessment of the prevalence of D. repens and other canine vector-borne pathogens in Brandenburg found that a high proportion of dogs originated from inland or abroad shelters, and therefore might potentially come from areas endemic for dirofilariosis or babesiosis.
Historische Bedeutung von Stechmücken als Überträger von Krankheitserregern in Europa
Hematophagous arthropods and the diseases associated with them represent a growing threat to human and animal health in Europe. After the eradication of endemic malaria from Europe in the middle of
Blood parasites in reptiles imported to Germany
The investigation revealed a high percentage of imported reptiles being carriers of parasites while possible vectors and pathogenicity are largely unknown so far.
Evaluation of the Adulticidal Efficacy of Imidacloprid 10 %/Moxidectin 2.5 % (w/v) Spot-on (Advocate®, Advantage® Multi) against Dirofilaria repens in Experimentally Infected Dogs
It is concluded that six consecutive monthly treatments with imidacloprid/moxidectin spot-on are effective and safe against adult D. repens and provide an option for preventing the further spread of this zoonotic parasite.


Current Surveys on the Prevalence and Distribution of Dirofilaria spp. in Dogs in Germany
The Central Upper-Rhine (Baden-Württemberg, Germany) is one of the warmest regions in Germany and also harbours abundant numbers of mosquitoes, which prompted a further investigation into the occurrence of vector-borne pathogens.
Human dirofilariosis in Poland: the first cases of autochthonous infections with Dirofilaria repens.
Data on human and canine infection collected from central Poland during the last 5 years indicates that Dirofilaria repens has been introduced into this country, and that the infection is successfully spreading, with the border of the endemic area currently on 52°N, 21°E.
Human dirofilariasis due to Dirofilaria (Nochtiella) repens: an update of world literature from 1995 to 2000.
Of the various forms of human dirofilariasis, that due to D. (N.) repens is confirmed to be the most important as regards not only the number of subjects affected and the wide geographical distribution but also the variety of organs involved, notably the lungs, the male genitals and the female breast, invariably leading to a wrong diagnosis of malignant tumour.
Molecular detection of Setaria tundra (Nematoda: Filarioidea) and an unidentified filarial species in mosquitoes in Germany
BackgroundKnowledge of the potential vector role of Culicidae mosquitoes in Germany is very scanty, and until recently it was generally assumed that they are not involved in the transmission of
Changing climate and changing vector-borne disease distribution: the example of Dirofilaria in Europe.
A growing degree day-based forecast model has been developed and predicted that the summer temperatures are sufficient to facilitate extrinsic incubation of Dirofilaria even at latitudes of 56 °N and longitudes of 39 °E.
Dirofilaria repens Infection and Concomitant Meningoencephalitis
A case of D. repens infection with a subcutaneous gravid worm and the patient’s concomitant meningoencephalitis and aphasia is reported.
