A genus of gram-negative bacteria characteristically appearing in chains of several segmenting organisms. It occurs in man and arthropod vectors and is found only in the Andes region of South America. This genus is the etiologic agent of human bartonellosis. The genus Rochalimaea, once considered a separate genus, has recently been combined with the genus Bartonella as a result of high levels of relatedness in 16S rRNA sequence data and DNA hybridization data.
Infections by the genus BARTONELLA. Bartonella bacilliformis can cause acute febrile anemia, designated Oroya fever, and a benign skin eruption, called verruga peruana. BARTONELLA QUINTANA causes TRENCH FEVER, while BARTONELLA HENSELAE is the etiologic agent of bacillary angiomatosis (ANGIOMATOSIS, BACILLARY) and is also one of the causes of CAT-SCRATCH DISEASE in immunocompetent patients.
A self-limiting bacterial infection of the regional lymph nodes caused by AFIPIA felis, a gram-negative bacterium recently identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and by BARTONELLA HENSELAE.

In vitro method for producing large amounts of specific DNA or RNA fragments of defined length and sequence from small amounts of short oligonucleotide flanking sequences (primers). The essential steps include thermal denaturation of the double-stranded target molecules, annealing of the primers to their complementary sequences, and extension of the annealed primers by enzymatic synthesis with DNA polymerase. The reaction is efficient, specific, and extremely sensitive. Uses for the reaction include disease diagnosis, detection of difficult-to-isolate pathogens, mutation analysis, genetic testing, DNA sequencing, and analyzing evolutionary relationships.
An island of the West Indies. Its capital is St. George's. It was discovered in 1498 by Columbus who called it Concepcion. It was held at different times by the French and the British during the 18th century. The British suppressed a native uprising in 1795. It was an associate state of Great Britain 1967-74 but became an independent nation within the British Commonwealth in 1974. The original name referred to the Feast of the Immaculate Conception but it was later renamed for the Spanish kingdom of Granada.

Cat-scratch disease with paravertebral mass and osteomyelitis. (1/275)

The case of a 9-year-old girl with cat-scratch disease (CSD) complicated by development of a paravertebral mass and osteomyelitis is presented. Following multiple scratches and inguinal lymphadenopathy, she developed back pain, and imaging demonstrated a paravertebral mass with evidence of osteomyelitis involving vertebra T9. The diagnosis was made on the basis of detection of Bartonella henselae by use of molecular techniques on an aspirate from the vertebral column and supportive serology for infection with B. henselae. Eleven other cases of this unusual manifestation associated with CSD have been reported in the literature and are reviewed. The patient was treated with gentamicin, followed by rifampicin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, orally and made a favorable recovery over 7 months. This is comparable with other case reports, regardless of the choice of antibiotic therapy. CSD in immunocompetent hosts is not always self-limiting, and tissues beyond the lymph nodes can be involved.  (+info)

Detection of Bartonella henselae DNA by two different PCR assays and determination of the genotypes of strains involved in histologically defined cat scratch disease. (2/275)

Cat scratch disease (CSD) is a common cause of subacute regional lymphadenopathy, not only in children but also in adults. Serological and molecular studies demonstrated that Bartonella henselae is the etiologic agent in most cases of CSD. Amplification of B. henselae DNA in affected tissue and detection of antibodies to B. henselae are the two mainstays in the laboratory diagnosis of CSD. We designed a retrospective study and investigated formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded lymph nodes from 60 patients (25 female, 35 male) with histologically suspected CSD by PCR amplification. The sensitivities of two different PCR assays were compared. The first primer pair amplified a 296-bp fragment of the 16S rRNA gene in 36 of the 60 samples, corresponding to a sensitivity of 60%. The second primer pair amplified a 414-bp fragment of the htrA gene in 26 of the 60 lymph nodes, corresponding to a sensitivity of 43.3%. Bartonella DNA could be detected in a total of 39 (65%) of the 60 lymph nodes investigated. However, histopathologic findings are typical but not specific for CSD and cannot be considered as a "gold standard" for diagnosis of CSD. The sensitivity of the PCR assays increased from 65 to 87% if two criteria (histology and serology) were used in combination for diagnosis of CSD. Two genotypes (I and II) of B. henselae are described as being involved in CSD. Genotype I was found in 23 (59%) and genotype II was found in 9 (23%) of the 39 PCR-positive lymph nodes. Seven (18%) lymph nodes were negative in both type-specific PCR assays. Thirty (50%) of our 60 patients were younger than 20 years old (15 were younger than 10 years), 20 (33%) were between 21 and 40 years old, and 10 (17%) patients were between 41 and 84 years old. Our data suggest that detection of Bartonella DNA in patients' samples might confirm the histologically suspected diagnosis of CSD.  (+info)

Culture of Bartonella quintana and Bartonella henselae from human samples: a 5-year experience (1993 to 1998). (3/275)

Bartonella quintana and Bartonella henselae are fastidious gram-negative bacteria responsible for bacillary angiomatosis, trench fever, cat scratch disease, and endocarditis. During a 5-year period, we received 2,043 samples for culture of Bartonella sp. We found Bartonella sp. to be the etiologic agent in 38 cases of endocarditis, 78 cases of cat scratch disease, 16 cases of bacteremia in homeless people, and 7 cases of bacillary angiomatosis. We correlated the results of positive cultures with the clinical form of the disease, type of sample, culture procedure, PCR-based genomic detection, and antibody determination. Seventy-two isolates of B. quintana and nine isolates of B. henselae from 43 patients were obtained. Sixty-three of the B. quintana isolates and two of the B. henselae isolates, obtained from patients with no prior antibiotic therapy, were stably subcultured. The sensitivity of culture was low when compared with that of PCR-based detection methods in valves of patients with endocarditis (44 and 81%, respectively), skin biopsy samples of patients with bacillary angiomatosis (43 and 100%, respectively), and lymph nodes of cat scratch disease (13 and 30%, respectively). Serological diagnosis was also more sensitive in cases of endocarditis (97%) and cat scratch disease (90%). Among endocarditis patients, the sensitivity of the shell vial culture assay was 28% when inoculated with blood samples and 44% when inoculated with valvular biopsy samples, and the sensitivity of both was significantly higher than that of culture on agar (5% for blood [P = 0.045] and 4% for valve biopsy samples [P < 0.0005]). The most efficient culture procedure was the subculture of blood culture broth into shell vials (sensitivity, 71%). For patients with endocarditis, previous antibiotic therapy significantly affected results of blood culture; no patient who had been administered antibiotics yielded a positive blood culture, whereas 80% of patients with no previous antibiotic therapy yielded positive blood cultures (P = 0.0006). Previous antibiotic therapy did not, however, prevent isolation of Bartonella sp. from cardiac valves but did prevent the establishment of strains, as none of the 15 isolates from treated patients could be successfully subcultured. For the diagnosis of B. quintana bacteremia in homeless people, the efficiency of systematic subculture of blood culture broth onto agar was higher than that of direct blood plating (respective sensitivities, 98 and 10% [P < 10(-7)]). Nevertheless, both procedures are complementary, since when used together their sensitivity reached 100%. All homeless people with positive blood cultures had negative serology. The isolation rate of B. henselae from PCR-positive lymph nodes, in patients with cat scratch disease, was significantly lower than that from valves of endocarditis patients and skin biopsy samples from bacillary angiomatosis patients (13 and 33%, respectively [P = 0.084]). In cases of bacillary angiomatosis for which an agent was identified to species level, the isolation rate of B. henselae was lower than the isolation rate of B. quintana (28 and 64%, respectively [P = 0.003]). If culture is to be considered an efficient tool for the diagnosis of several Bartonella-related diseases, methodologies need to be improved, notably for the recovery of B. henselae from lymph nodes of patients with cat scratch disease.  (+info)

Acute clinical disease in cats following infection with a pathogenic strain of Bartonella henselae (LSU16). (4/275)

Bartonella henselae is the causative agent of human cat scratch disease as well as several serious sequelae of infections, including bacillary angiomatosis and bacillary peliosis. Conflicting reports describe the pathogenesis of B. henselae in the cat. In this study, we characterized a strain of B. henselae termed LSU16. This strain was isolated on rabbit blood agar from a naturally infected 10-month-old female cat during a recurrent episode of bacteremia. The bacterial species was confirmed by PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis. Nine cats were infected intradermally with 5 x 10(7) CFU of LSU16, and clinical signs, antibody responses, and bacteremia were monitored. All nine cats developed raised, erythematous areas at the site of inoculation within 72 h postinoculation; the swelling peaked at 14 days postinfection and was not palpable by 28 days postinfection. Fever developed in all nine cats between 6 and 16 days postinfection and lasted for 1 to 8 days. Between 6 and 16 days postinfection, all nine cats experienced lethargy which persisted 5 to 18 days. Seven of nine cats were bacteremic by day 7, and all nine cats had become bacteremic by 14 days postinfection. Bacteremia peaked at 14 to 28 days postinfection in all cats. In six of the nine infected cats, bacterial numbers reached nondetectable levels during the 7th week postinfection; however, a single animal maintained bacteremia to 18 weeks postinfection. All nine cats developed strong antibody responses to B. henselae, as determined by Western blot analysis and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Subsequently, three naive cats were injected intradermally with blood from cats infected with LSU16 from a pure culture, and five naive cats were injected with feces from fleas which had been feeding on cats infected with a pure culture of LSU16. These cats developed signs similar to those described in the previous experiment and were euthanized at 5 weeks postinfection. We conclude that B. henselae LSU16 is a virulent strain of B. henselae in cats and propose that the virulence of B. henselae in cats is strain dependent.  (+info)

Bartonella henselae and Bartonella clarridgeiae infection in domestic cats from The Philippines. (5/275)

One hundred seven domestic cats from The Philippines were serologically tested to establish the prevalence of Bartonella infection. A subset of 31 of these cats also had whole blood collected to tentatively isolate Bartonella strains. Bartonella henselae and B. clarridgeiae were isolated from 19 (61%) of these cats. Bartonella henselae type I was isolated from 17 (89%) of the 19 culture-positive cats. Six cats (31%) were infected with B. clarridgeiae, of which four were coinfected with B. henselae. Sixty-eight percent (73 of 107) and 65% (70 of 107) of the cats had antibodies to B. henselae and B. clarridgeiae, respectively, detected by an immunofluorescence antibody (IFA) test at a titer > or = 1:64. When tested by enzyme immunoassay (EIA), 67 cats (62.6%) had antibodies to B. henselae and 71 cats (66.4%) had antibodies to B. clarridgeiae. Compared with the IFA test, the B. henselae EIA had a sensitivity of 90.4% and a specificity of 97%, with positive and negative predictive values of 98.5% and 82.5%, respectively. Similarly, the B. clarridgeiae EIA had a sensitivity of 97% and a specificity of 92% specificity, with positive and negative predictive values of 95.8% and 94.4%, respectively. The presence of antibodies to Bartonella was strongly associated with flea infestation. Domestic cats represent a large reservoir of Bartonella infection in the Philippines.  (+info)

Presumed ocular bartonellosis. (6/275)

BACKGROUND: The spectrum of diseases caused by Bartonella henselae continues to expand and ocular involvement during this infection is being diagnosed with increasing frequency. METHODS: The clinical features and visual prognosis for 13 patients with intraocular inflammatory disease and laboratory evidence of bartonellosis were investigated. There were nine patients with neuroretinitis and four with panuveitis with positive antibody titres against B henselae determined by an enzyme immunoassay (IgG exceeding 1:900 and/or IgM exceeding 1:250). RESULTS: Positive IgG levels were found for eight patients and positive IgM levels for five. Despite animal exposure of 10 patients, only two (IgG positive) cases had systemic symptoms consistent with the diagnosis of cat scratch disease. Pathological fluorescein leakage of the optic disc was observed in all affected eyes. At 6 months' follow up, 3/18 (17%) affected eyes had a visual acuity of less than 20/100, owing to optic disc atrophy and cystoid macular oedema. 12 patients (17 eyes) were treated with antibiotics; visual acuity improved two or more Snellen lines for 9/17 (53%) eyes. CONCLUSIONS: The possibility of B henselae infection should be considered in patients with neuroretinitis and panuveitis (especially in cases with associated optic nerve involvement) even in the absence of systemic symptoms typical for cat scratch disease.  (+info)

Identification of Bartonella-specific immunodominant antigens recognized by the feline humoral immune system. (7/275)

The seroreactivities of both naturally and experimentally infected cats to Bartonella henselae was examined. Serum samples collected weekly from nine cats experimentally infected with B. henselae LSU16 were tested by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and Western blot analysis. The magnitude and isotype of the antibody response were investigated by ELISA. Western blot analysis allowed the identification of at least 24 Bartonella-specific antigens recognized by the cats during infection. Antibody titers to specific antigens, as determined by Western blot analysis, ranged from 10 to 640 and varied among the different antibody-antigen interactions. Absorption of sera from an experimentally infected cat, using whole cells and cell lysates of various Bartonella species and other bacteria that commonly colonize cats, supported the identification of those Bartonella-specific antigens recognized by the experimentally infected cats. Furthermore, a number of possible species- and type-specific antigens were identified. Finally, sera obtained from cats at local animal shelters were screened for the presence of antibodies directed against the Bartonella-specific bands identified in the experimentally infected cats. A number of Bartonella-specific antigens have been identified to which strong antibody responses are generated in both experimentally and naturally infected cats, some of which may be useful in diagnosing species- and/or type-specific infections. In addition, the results from these experiments will lead to the development of monoclonal antibodies targeted against those genus-, species-, and type-specific antigens.  (+info)

Characterization of Bartonella henselae-specific immunity in BALB/c mice. (8/275)

BALB/c mice were inoculated with Bartonella henselae by both systemic and mucosal routes. Culture analysis of tissues from mice infected intraperitoneally with a high dose of B. henselae yielded positive results 24 hr after infection. However, culture analysis of blood taken between 6 hr and 7 days after infection from groups receiving live B. henselae were negative. Following intraperitoneal infection, B. henselae was detected by polymerase chain reaction in liver and mesenteric lymph nodes by 6 hr and up to 7 days after infection in liver, kidney and spleen tissue. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) of serum samples collected as early as 13 days after infection indicated humoral immune responses to B. henselae. Specific humoral responses remained through week 6. Analysis of faecal samples revealed induction of B. henselae-specific immunoglobulin A by day 28 after infection. In addition, B. henselae-specific cellular responses were indicated by a positive delayed-type hypersensitivity and a T helper 1 (Th1) (CD4+ T cell)-type cytokine response following in vitro stimulation of splenocytes. The significance and implications of these data in relation to B. henselae infections are discussed.  (+info)

Bartonella henselae is a zoonotic agent in which the domestic cat serves as the natural reservoir, and humans acquire potentially serious infections associated with this microorganism. The purpose of this research is to contribute to the understanding of the pathogenesis of B. henselae in the domestic cat using a molecular approach. Using sequence differences in a portion of the I 6S rRNA gene between B. henselae genotype I, and B. henselae genotype II, a nested polymerase chain reaction (nPCR) was designed and used to investigate various phases of feline bartonellosis. The nPCR detected 3.2 organisms per milliliter of blood which is below the detection limits of standard bacterial culture. Bartonella henselae LSU 16 genotype II, Bartonella henselae Baby genotype II, Bartonella henselae 87--66 genotype I, and Bartonella henselae Houston-1 genotype I were used in this study to infect cats. The PCR assay detected Bartonella DNA in 40 blood samples that were culture negative. The bacteremia as
Commonly abbreviated as CSD, Cat Scratch Disease is an infectious disease caused by the bacteria Bartonella henselae. As the name suggests, CSD is often caused by scratches and bites from cats that become infected. An indication of CSD is when the lymph nodes around the neck, heads, and sometimes the upper limbs show signs of swelling. Other symptoms of CSD may include fatigue, fever, headache, and a loss of appetite. In rare instances, complications from CSD may arise such as Parinauds oculolandular syndrome and bacillary angiomatosis. Cats do have the capacity to spread Bartonella henselae to humans. Kittens pose a greater risk than cats and pass the bacterium onto their owners more often than adult cats. At some point in their lifetimes, approximately forty percent of cats become carriers of the Bartonella henselae. Cats who are carriers display no symptoms and will not act sickly. It is impossible to tell whether or not a cat can spread the disease to their owner.. Individuals with weak ...

ISSN 1678-9946. https://doi.org/10.1590/s1678-9946202062079.. Bartonella spp. are re-emerging and neglected bacterial pathogens. The natural reservoirs for several species of this genus are domestic animals such as cats and dogs, the most common pets in the USA and Brazil. Some cat studies suggest that the infection is more prevalent in tropical and poverty-stricken areas. These bacteria were associated with a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations: fever of unknown origin, endocarditis, angiomatosis, chronic lymphadenopathy, hepatitis, fatigue, paresthesia and pain. Our group has already demonstrated that B. henselae -infected sickle cell disease mice present with hyperalgesia. We hypothesized that even immunocompetent mice infected by B. henselae would show an increased and persistent mechanical ...
What is cat scratch disease (CSD)?. Cat Scratch Disease (CSD) is a bacterial infection caused by Bartonella henselae. It is transmitted to cats by flea droppings in a cats fur or claws. The bacteria spreads to people when an infected cat bites or scratches, or licks someones open wound. Young children and people with weak immune systems are the most likely to get CSD. Ticks may also spread Bartonella henselae to cats, but it is not clearly documented that ticks can spread CSD to people.. Does my cat carry this disease?. Not every cat or kitten will carry Bartonella henselae. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that about 40% of cats carry the bacteria at some time in their lives. Cats that carry this disease do not show any signs of illness, so you cannot tell which cats can spread the disease to you. Kittens and feral cats are the most likely to spread the disease because they are more likely to bite or scratch.. What are the symptoms of CSD?. The symptoms of CSD ...
It is reported that up to 95% of patients with Cat Scratch Disease present antibodies against Bartonella henselae antigens. Through a type IV secretory system, B. henselae proteins are transported into the host cells. The encoding gene of outer membrane protein p26 has significant nucleotide identity with orthologs in Brucella spp., Bartonella spp., and several plant-associated bacteria ...
Bacteria of the genus Bartonella are fastidious, facultative intracellular bacilli, belonging to the alpha-2 subgroup of Proteobacteria. Bartonella henselae is the causative agent of cat-scratch disease (CSD) and is also involved in other clinical situations such as endocarditis, bacillary angiomatosis (BA) and peliosis hepatitis (PH) in immunocompromised patients (1). Interestingly, erythromycin has become the drug of first choice and has been successfully used to treat many patients with BA (8) and PH (14). However, when the treatment duration is less than 15 days, relapses after antibiotic withdrawal are common, and therefore treatment should be given for 3 to 4 months (8). Macrolide compounds inhibit protein synthesis by binding to domains II and V of 23S rRNA (7). The first mechanism of macrolide resistance described was due to posttranscriptional modifications of the 23S rRNA by the adenine-N 6-methyltransferase. Modification of the ribosomal target confers cross-resistance to macrolides ...
B. henselae infection initiates after trauma to the skin, suggesting that adherence to host cells may be mediated by specific interactions between B. henselae surface proteins such as Pap31 and components of the host ECM such as Fn and Hep. Pap31 was previously shown to be involved in acquisition of heme and thus may be an important virulence factor for B. henselae (8, 53). Because heme receptor molecules are surface exposed, we undertook to determine if Pap31 had another virulence function as an adhesin to ECM. We have expressed and purified B. henselae Pap31 with high yield and purity and demonstrated its immunogenicity. We also demonstrated that Pap31 acts as a potential ligand for Fn and Hep, indicating its broad-range binding ability. Recognition of anti-Pap31 antibodies in rabbits or mice vaccinated with live B. henselae or purified Pap31, respectively, indicated that the protein is expressed in vivo and contributes to the humoral immune response in the host defense against B. henselae. ...

One of the most striking examples of how Lyme disease co-infections can wreak havoc on the extracellular matrix and connective tissues comes from a 2018 study that looked at the effects of Bartonella infection, rheumatological symptoms and associated joint hypermobility (8). The case study publication concerned a female veterinarian who displayed the clinical symptoms of EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome), Type 3. Type 3 EDS is considered to be the most severe form of EDS, chiefly affecting the vascular system, and leading to a significantly reduced life expectancy. The patient was identified as having a Beighton hypermobility score of 7/9.. The patient was found to have Bartonella koehlerae and Bartonella henselae infections. Bartonella bacterial infections have a notable and destructive effect on the vasculature and endothelial functions. The patient was treated for bartonella using the longterm use of antibiotics. The treatment resulted in the resolution of the patients symptoms, and notably the ...
Cat scratch disease, a mild flu-like infection, with swollen lymph nodes (lymphadenitis) and mild fever of short duration, due to cat scratches, especially from kittens. There is usually a little bump (a papule) which may be pus-filled (a pustule) at the site of the scratch. The infection is self-limited and usually goes away by itself in a few weeks. It can also be treated with antibiotics, but it can cause a severe inflammation called bacillary angiomatosis in patients with weakened immune systems. A cat carrying the microbe does not show symptoms and it is not necessary to get rid of it. If someone in the household is at high risk, a test to detect the infection can be done and the cat can be treated. The disease is caused by a bacterium called Rochalimaea henselae, eventually reclassified as Bartonella henselae, named for Diane Hensel, a microbiologist. The disease has also been called regional lymphadenitis. ...

Epidemiological studies showed bacteria prevalence ranging from 15% to 55% in many countries, including Europe, United States, Asia, Australia and Africa.. No direct transmission from cat to cat in a flea-free environment and no vertical transmission from infected queens to their kittens have been observed. ...
The genus Bartonella contains Gram-negative arthropod-borne bacteria that are found in many small animal reservoirs and are capable of causing human disease. Bacteria utilize a general stress response system to combat stresses from their surrounding environments. In α-proteobacteria, the general stress response system uses an alternate σ factor as the main regulator and incorporates it with a two-component system into a unique system. Our study identifies the general stress response system in the α-proteobacterium, Bartonella henselae, where the gene synteny is conserved and both the PhyR and alternate σ factor have similar sequence and domain structures with other α-proteobacteria. Furthermore, we showed that the general stress response genes are up-regulated under conditions that mimic the cat flea vector. We also showed that both RpoE and PhyR positively regulate this system and that RpoE also affects transcription of genes encoding heme-binding proteins and the BadA adhesin. Finally, we also

W średniowiecznej Nubii istniały trzy królestwa. Jednym z nich była Alwa ze stolicą w Soba. Według opisu średniowiecznego podróżnika były tam wystawne domy, duże klasztory, kościoły z bogatym wyposażeniem i pięknymi ogrodami. Ta wieloetniczna metropolia była siedzibą władz kościelnych oraz królewskich. Po tej świetności niewiele zostało śladów na powierzchni ziemi.. Przeprowadzone badania jednak pozwoliły uchylić rąbka tajemnicy i zajrzeć pod powierzchnię. Okazało się, że jedna z dzielnic miasta była gęsto zabudowana i posiadała wyraźną sieć dróg. Druga charakteryzuje się zabudową bardziej rozproszoną i większymi budynkami. Ustalenia te były możliwe dzięki działaniom zespołu geofizyków z Instytutu Archeologii i Etnologii PAN, którzy wykonali mapę anomalii magnetycznych dla obszaru obejmującego 20ha dawnego miasta oraz przebadali ponad 4ha przy użyciu georadaru.. - W czasie badań wykopaliskowych, prowadzonych w różnych częściach ...

A: Scientists often seem tentative about their own explanations because of an enormous amount of nuances that rule the world of science and research. They know that those explanations could change if new evidence or perspectives come to light. When scientists correspond their ideas through the medium of journal articles, they are expected to carefully analyze the evidence for and against their ideas and to be explicit about alternative explanations for what they are observing. Due to the fact that they are trained to do this for their scientific writing, scientists often do the same thing when talking to the press or a broader audience about their ideas. However, this never means that once one of our scientific facilities finishes and evaluates any specific research, the results are wishy-washy. They are as accurate, as any other professional research lab in the world could get that same kind of an information ...
Cat scratch disease is also known as cat scratch fever. This disease strikes people who are infected by the Bartonella henselae bacteria. In almost all cases, cat scratch disease occurs when the person was scratched or bitten by his cat. The cat itself does not catch cat scratch disease. It is just a carrier. Now, before you panic and send your cat to the pound, the National Center for Infectious Diseases (CDC) estimates that 40% of all cats carry this disease at some time in their lives. Considering how many cat owners exist in the world, clearly, this disease is not very infectious or dangerous.. But how do you know whether you were infected by cat scratch disease? The first thing you want to look at is the place your cat bit or scratched you. Is the wound infected? (Note: If you cannot find the wound, then you do not have cat scratch disease.) Then you want to check your lymph nodes. Are the nodes around your head, neck and upper limbs swollen? Do you also have fever, headache, fatigue, and a ...

Cat scratches and bites can cause cat scratch disease, a bacterial infection carried in cat saliva. The bacteria are passed from a cat to a human after the cat licks its paws then scratches human skin. Rubbing the eyes after petting a cats fur can also spread cat scratch disease. Young kittens younger than 1 year of age are more likely to scratch, increasing the likelihood of infection.. ...
Cat scratch disease (CSD), due to Bartonella henselae, is a self-limited chronic lymphadenopathy. A previously healthy 22-year-old woman presented with a palpable painful swelling in the right submandibular region accompanied by enlarged cervical lymph nodes. A diagnosis of B. henselae infection was made according to her personal history that divulged frequent contacts with cats and to a high titre of immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgM antibodies for this agent. The patient improved within 1 month without the requirement of antibiotic treatment or surgery. The CSD should always be included in the differential diagnosis of all equivocal masses in the neck, especially in young individuals. In addition, it is important that a meticulous personal history is obtained. ...
The diagnostic value of the detection of immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgM by Bartonella henselae-based indirect fluorescence assay (IFA) and enzyme-linked immunoassay (EIA) for the diagnosis of cat scratch disease (CSD) was evaluated. The IFA was performed either with B. henselae that was cocultivated for a few hours with Vero cells or with noncocultivated B. henselae as the antigen. Additionally, the performance of a Bartonella PCR hybridization assay based on the 16S rRNA gene was determined and compared with those of the serologic assays. The study group consisted of 45 patients suspected of suffering from CSD by fulfilling one or more of the classical criteria. The specificities of the immunoassays were set at , or = 95% by analysis of sera from 60 healthy blood donors. It is shown that the sensitivities of the IgG assays are very low (40.9% for the IFA with noncocultivated B. henselae as antigen) and that those of the IgM assays are higher (71.4% for the EIA) for patients who fulfilled two or ...
Cat scratch disease, commonly called cat scratch fever, is an infection caused by Bartonella henselae, a bacterium carried in the saliva of infected cats. According to the KidsHealth website, ...
The currently accepted model explaining the infection cycle holds that the transmitting vectors are blood-sucking arthropods and the reservoir hosts are mammals. Immediately after infection, the bacteria colonize a primary niche, the endothelial cells. Every five days, some of the Bartonella bacteria in the endothelial cells are released into the blood stream, where they infect erythrocytes. The bacteria then invade a phagosomal membrane inside the erythrocytes, where they multiply until they reach a critical population density. At this point, they simply wait until they are taken up with the erythrocytes by a blood-sucking arthropod. Though some studies have found no definitive evidence of transmission by a tick to a vertebrate host, [7][8] Bartonella species are well-known to be transmissible to both animals and humans through various other vectors, such as fleas, lice, and sand flies.[9] Recent studies have shown a strong correlation between tick exposure and bartonellosis,[9][10] including ...
Kittens can be diagnosed as cat scratch disease carriers through a simple blood test, and positive kittens can be treated successfully with antibiotics. Because this disease can come back, however, this is not a silver bullet for preventing cat scratch disease. Declawing kittens at an early age is the best way to prevent infection. You should be aware of the ramifications to the cat before declawing it, however. Not only can it be dangerous for the cat to go outside, it can also be psychologically traumatic and cause unexpected complications like arthritis ...

Cat-scratch disease, also called bartonellosis, is by far the most common zoonotic disease associated with cats. Cat-scratch disease can occur when a person is bitten or scratched by an infected cat. Fleas may also play a role in the transmission of infection. People with cat-scratch disease usually have swollen lymph nodes, especially around the head, neck, and upper limbs. They may also experience fever, headache, sore muscles and joints, fatigue, and poor appetite. Some healthy cats are continuously or intermittently infected with cat-scratch disease bacteria. Avoiding scratches and bites, controlling fleas, and keeping cats indoors all reduce the risk of cat-scratch disease.. Fleas are the most common external parasite of cats. While fleas cannot thrive on humans, their bites can cause itching and inflammation. Fleas may also serve as vectors for cat-scratch and other zoonotic diseases. Flea-infested cats may become infected with tapeworms from fleas ingested while grooming. Children can ...

Cat scratches and bites can cause cat scratch disease, a bacterial infection carried in cat saliva. Research suggests a cat may get these bacteria from fleas. The bacteria are passed from an infected cat to a human after the cat licks an open wound or bites or scratches human skin hard enough to break the surface of the skin. Kittens younger than one year of age are more likely to scratch, increasing the likelihood of infection. ...
Before DNA was extracted from the samples, 10 μL of blood was diluted in 190 µL of phosphate-buffered saline. DNA was automatically extracted by using a BioRobot Symphony Workstation and MagAttract DNA Blood M96 Kit (QIAGEN, Valencia, CA, USA). Bartonella DNA was amplified by using conventional Bartonella genus PCR primers targeting the 16S-23S intergenic spacer region: oligonucleotides, 425s (5′-CCG GGG AAG GTT TTC CGG TTT ATCC-3′) and 1,000as (5′-CTG AGC TAC GGC CCC TAA ATC AGG-3′). Amplification was performed in a 25-μL reaction, as described (3). All PCR reactions were analyzed by 2% agarose gel electrophoresis. Amplicons were sequenced to identify the Bartonella sp. and intergenic spacer region genotype. To compare sequences with those in GenBank, we identified bacterial species and genotypes by using Blast version 2.0 (http://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Blast.cgi). DNA extraction and PCR-negative controls remained negative throughout the study.. Results are summarized in the Table. ...

Bartonella species can be isolated (with difficulty) from blood, using ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) tubes. The organisms have been isolated from tissue in only a few laboratories because of the fastidious nature of Bartonella.2 Polymerase chain reaction methods have been developed for identification and speciation of Bartonella but are not widely available.. Preventing Exposure. HIV-infected patients, specifically those who are severely immunocompromised (CD4 counts ,100 cells/mm3), are at high risk of severe disease when infected by B. quintana and B. henselae. The major risk factors for acquisition of B. henselae are contact with cats infested with fleas and receiving cat scratches. Immunocompromised individuals should consider the potential risks of cat ownership (AIII). Patients who want cats should acquire animals that are older than age 1 year and in good health (BII). Cats should be acquired from a known environment, have a documented health history, and be free of fleas. Stray ...

Bartonella species are members of the alpha-2 subgroup of the class Alphaproteobacteria, within the Rhizobiales order. There are now more than 22 species or subspecies described, and DNA sequences from numerous other species or strains have been deposited in GenBank. Warthin-Starry silver stain is recommended for microscopic detection of Bartonella organisms in fixed tissue sections but is not highly specific and is insensitive, even with lymph node biopsy samples from cat scratch disease (CSD) patients. In contrast, even when isolation of the infecting species is not possible, PCR amplification of internal transcribed spacer (ITS) DNA directly from diagnostic samples and/or from enrichment cultures followed by nucleic acid sequencing is an invaluable tool for primary identification at the species, subspecies, and genotype levels. The first serologic test for CSD was an immunofluorescence antibody assay (IFA) based on B. henselae bacilli that were cocultivated with Vero cells to inhibit

Bartonella bacteria cause several diseases in humans. The three most common are cat scratch disease, caused by B. henselae; trench fever, caused by B. quintana; and Carrións disease, caused by B. bacilliformis.
As pet owners we seldom think about how our cat or dogs illness might negatively impact us beyond that of the regular inconvenience of visits to the vets, medical bills, and the cost of prescription drugs, etc. Most illnesses and common ailments that assail pets are non-transferable to humans, leaving us little reason to be concerned for our own welfare. However, though many people are not aware of it, there do exist certain diseases and bacteria which can be passed from a dog or cat to their human owner. Here are some of the illnesses to watch out for.. Cat Scratch Disease: Though the name of the disease sounds nonthreatening and trivial, it is an unpleasant experience to suffer from Cat Scratch Disease. Bacteria can be passed from the cats saliva (if he bites someone) or through this claws (by scratching). The victim would then suffer from fevers, headaches, lethargy, and swollen lymph nodes anywhere from a week to two weeks after the incident. The good news is, only about 40% of cats carry ...
What are the symptoms?. This is not a particularly serious or dangerous disease. It shows up in the form of enlargement of the lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are little glands that are a part of your immune system, and they are located in your armpit, groin, neck, and chest. When you get it, they work overtime and can start to swell. This lasts for about a month or so, and they may drain pus. Other symptoms include fevers, lethargy, headaches, and loss of appetite. What is the treatment?. Usually your doctor will just tell you to wait it out. The immune system will heal it on its own within three to six weeks in the vast majority of cases. If the person shows more severe symptoms, the doctor may want to use antibiotics to speed it up. There isnt a cure that will instantly make it go away.. Do I need to get rid of my cat if I get sick?. No. First of all, even most people who get scratched dont get it. Second, this is not a disease that you get multiple times. No one has ever been seen catching it ...

Cats can be cute - but they bring home more than mice. Scratches and bites can cause infections, from cat-scratch disease to MRSA bacteria to rabies.
To identify potential vaccine candidates against Ixodes ricinus and tick-borne pathogen transmission, we have previously sequenced the salivary gland transcriptomes of female ticks infected or not with Bartonella henselae. The hypothesized potential of both IrSPI (I. ricinus serine protease inhibitor) and IrLip1 (I. ricinus lipocalin 1) as protective antigens decreasing tick feeding and/or the transmission of tick-borne pathogens was based on their presumed involvement in dampening the host immune response to tick feeding. Vaccine endpoints included tick larval and nymphal mortality, feeding, and molting in mice and sheep. Whether the antigens were administered individually or in combination, the vaccination of mice or sheep elicited a potent antigen-specific antibody response. However, and contrary to our expectations, vaccination failed to afford protection against the infestation of mice and sheep by I. ricinus nymphs and larvae, respectively. Rather, vaccination with IrSPI and IrLip1 ...

Her doctors couldnt figure out what was wrong. After some prodding, they told her father that Alexus had cat-scratch disease. Amadeo Rodriguez pushed back on that diagnosis - the family didnt have cats, and there had been no time in the preceding weeks when Alexus could have been scratched by one.. He was skeptical, but he let it go.. The following Monday, he arrived at work and promptly told his supervisor, You know what? Im gonna go. Somethings wrong, and I just have a gut feeling that somethings wrong.. That day, Armadeo Rodriguez pushed doctors for a biopsy. Then, on Wednesday, July 11, 2012, he got the phone call. Alexus had stage four Burkitts lymphoma.. I already knew it, he said. I had a hunch. I had a hunch that it was cancer. … All the signs were there, because I was doing research.
