This study investigated the presence ofAnaplasma spp. in camels in northern Kenya and whether the hematophagous camel ked,Hippobosca camelina, acts as a vector. Camels (n = 976) and> 10,000 keds were sampled over a three-year study period and the presence ofAnaplasma species was determined by PCR-based assays targeting theAnaplasmataceae 16S rRNA gene. Camels were infected by a single species ofAnaplasma,‘Candidatus Anaplasma camelii’, with infection rates ranging from 63 –78% during the dry (September 2017), wet (June-July 2018), and late wet seasons (July-August 2019). 10–29% of camel keds harb...

This bias has potentially severe consequences, illustrated by cases of human granulocytic anaplasmosis and Lyme disease in a pregnant woman and human granulocytic anaplasmosis in another person.PMID:34287136 | DOI:10.3201/eid2708.211107

We describe the epidemiology and growing incidence of anaplasmosis cases reported during 2010-2018. Spatial analysis showed an expanding hot spot of anaplasmosis in the Capital Region, where incidence increased>8-fold. The prevalence of A. phagocytophilum increased greatly within tick populations in the Capital Region over the same period, and entomologic risk factors were correlated with disease incidence at a local level. These results indicate that anaplasmosis is rapidly emerging in a geographically focused area of NYS, likely driven by localized changes in exposure risk.PMID:34287128 | DOI:10.3201/eid2708.210133

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAnaplasma phagocytophilum is an obligate intracellular bacterium and a common tick-borne infectious pathogen that can cause human granulocytic anaplasmosis (HGA). Effector proteins play an important role in the pathogenic mechanism of A. phagocytophilum, but the specifics of the disease mechanism are unclear. We studied the effector protein AptA (A. phagocytophilum toxin A) using yeast two hybrid assays to screen its interacting protein proteasome assembly chaperone 3 (PSMG3, PAC3), and identified new ...
