Serological evidence of infection with Ehrlichia spp. in red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) in Switzerland


Pusterla, N; Deplazes, P; Braun, Ueli; Lutz, H (1999). Serological evidence of infection with Ehrlichia spp. in red foxes (Vulpes vulpes) in Switzerland. Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 37(4):1168-1169.

Abstract

Serum samples from 1,550 red foxes in Switzerland were tested for antibodies to the agents of canine granulocytic and monocytic ehrlichiosis by an indirect immunofluorescent technique. Forty-four (2.8%) of the samples were positive for Ehrlichia phagocytophila, which is an antigen marker for granulocytic ehrlichiosis. In contrast, none of the samples had antibodies specific to Ehrlichia canis, the agent of monocytic ehrlichiosis.
