mycoplasmas (hemoplasmas): a review and new insights into pathogenic potential.
Surprisingly, the fecal material also contained DNA of the ectoparasite-transmitted genera, such as the hemotrophic bartonellae (9).
are facultative intracellular bacteria that typically cause long-lasting hemotrophic bacteremia in their mammalian reservoir hosts, such as rodents (9).
mycoplasmas induce programmed cell death in red blood cells.
PCR testing is routinely used in human and veterinary medicine to diagnose bacteremic infections by Anaplasma, Ehrlichia, hemotrophic
Mycoplasma, and Rickettsia spp.
His research focuses on hemotrophic
infections in domestic animals and wildlife and their effects on human health.
In the light of modern knowledge, we now know that these 2 syndromes, 1 benign, the other pernicious, are both caused by the hemotrophic
bacterium, Bartonella bacilliformis.
To the Editor: Infections caused by hemotrophic mycoplasmas (formerly called eperythrozoonoses) in animals and humans have been emerging in the People's Republic of China in recent years.
We conducted an epidemiologic investigation of hemotrophic mycoplasma infections in China by reviewing all reported cases and outbreaks for 1994-2007.
The genus Bartonella includes a variety of gram-negative, fastidious, hemotrophic
bacteria that are transmitted by blood-sucking arthropod vectors.
mycoplasma infection was reported in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) (6).
