Abstract: Recent studies have been conducted in Brazil using molecular techniques for the detection of hemotrophic mycoplasmas in several mammals. In domestic cats, Mycoplasma haemofelis, 'Candidatus M. haemominutum', and 'Candidatus M. turicensis' infections have been identified. These species have also been found in free-ranging and captive neotropical felid species. Two canine hemoplasmas, Mycoplasma haemocanis and 'Candidatus Mycoplasma haematoparvum', have been identified in dogs. In commercial swine populations, M… Show more

“…Os hemoplasmas têm sido frequentemente detectados em esfregaço sanguíneo de gatos domésticos no Brasil, embora alguns trabalhos que investigam a ocorrência desses agentes apontem a PCR como o método de eleição para o diagnóstico direto, em virtude de sua maior sensibilidade e especificidade (Moraes et al 2007, Biondo et al 2009, Sykes 2010. Através da PCR pode-se detectar infecções com baixa carga parasitária comuns em estudos epidemiológicos onde os animais são selecionados de forma randômica (Foley et al 1998).…”

“…Subsequently, the same "Candidatus" species was found in other dogs in the United States (27) and in canids from Brazil (28), Europe (8,(29)(30)(31)(32), and Australia (33)(34)(35). Although ticks, in particular Rhipicephalus sanguineus (the brown dog tick), have been suggested as vectors for canine hemotropic mycoplasma transmission, there are no experimental data to support vector competence by any tick species (8,28,30,32,33,35,36). Interestingly, in this study, Mycoplasma ovis-like DNA was amplified only from blood samples, whereas "Candidatus Mycoplasma haematoparvum" was amplified from both blood and serum samples.…”
