  • infection
  • Wild canids are potential hosts for numerous species of Bartonella , yet little research has been done to quantify their infection rates in South America. (cambridge.org)
  • tested for, it will be important to conduct further research in non-captive wild canids to gain an accurate understanding of Bartonella infection in free-ranging wild canids in South America. (cambridge.org)
  • Cats
  • Of the twenty-three cats examined, Bartonella DNA was detected in various tissues from 10 of the 23 cats. (lsu.edu)
  • The spleen of nine of the 10 cats was positive for Bartonella DNA. (lsu.edu)
  • RNA expression analysis using the RT-PCR assay with primers specific for the 16S rRNA and the citrate synthase gene (gltA) of Bartonella detected no Bartonella RNA expression in the tissue of infected cats. (lsu.edu)
  • immunocompetent
  • While Bartonella species are susceptible to a number of standard antibiotics in vitro - macrolides and tetracycline , for example - the efficacy of antibiotic treatment in immunocompetent individuals is uncertain. (wikipedia.org)
  • antibiotics
  • But I listened to a rheumatologist podcast who happened to find many of his patients actually have bartonella and so he uses long term double antibiotics to treat them for between 6 months to a year. (healingwell.com)
