anaplasmosis

(ăn′ə-plăz-mō′sĭs)
n. pl. anaoplas·moses (-mō′sēz)
Infection with parasitic rickettsiae of the genus Anaplasma, especially A. phagocytophilum, formerly classified as Ehrlichia phagocytophilum, that are transmitted by ticks and produce manifestations in humans similar to those of Rocky Mountain spotted fever, including rash, muscle pain, and fever.

anaplasmosis

(an″ă-plaz-mō′sĭs) [ Anaplasma + -osis]
Infection with species of Anaplasma. Although the disease is usually found in cattle, humans may sometimes contract it after a tick bite. Anaplasmosis is characterized by fevers, chills, muscle aches, headache, and interstitial pneumonia.

However, Anaplasma phagocytophilum, an obligate intracellular bacteria closely related member of the family Anaplasmataceae is responsible for causing human granulocytic anaplasmosis. This is currently becoming an emerging disease in humans it has the potential to be transmitted by ticks as well as nosocomial infection (Dumlar et al., 2005; Walker et al., 2008; Zhang et al., 2012).
One reason for doxycycline's effectiveness against notoriously recalcitrant bacterial infections such as Borrelia burgdorferi (the spirochete bacterium that causes Lyme disease) and the rickettsial bacteria that cause Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, anaplasmosis, and ehrlichiosis, is its high lipid solubility, which allows it to attack pathogens that have set up shop in the central nervous system and in the synovial fluid of the joints.
Another possibility, however, is that we excluded patients whose fever or systemic symptoms were primarily caused by human granulocytic anaplasmosis, rather than Lyme disease, and thus had started antimicrobial drug therapy before study entry.
From second day and onwards the calf was treated for Anaplasmosis and anemia with Inj.
* Northeast: deer or black-legged ticks (Ixodes scapularis) can spread Lyme disease to dogs and humans; babesiosis to humans and anaplasmosis to dogs and humans.
Bovine Anaplasmosis caused by Anaplasma marginale is a non-contagious, arthropod-borne, parasitic disease of ruminants that results in significant economic losses to cattle industry.
El metodo inmunoprofilactico constituye una herramienta importante utilizada en nuestro pais, de comprobada eficacia para controlar el impacto de anaplasmosis y babesiosis en los sistemas de produccion ganadera.
During feeding ticks can transmit disease, including Lymes disease, Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis and Ehrlichiosis.
Among the rest were four ticks with the bacterial infection leading to babesiosis, eight showing the infection leading to anaplasmosis and five harboring the Borrelia miyamotoi bacteria.
Human granulocytic anaplasmosis (HGA) is a tickborne intracellular bacterial infection caused by Anaplasma phagocytophilum.
