Serosurvey of antibodies against spotted fever group Rickettsia spp. in horse farms in Northern Paraná, Brazil

Abstract: Brazilian spotted fever (BSF) is an emerging disease most likely caused by Rickettsia rickettsii. The objective of the present study was to estimate the seroprevalence of BSF rickettsia infections in equines from six horse farms located in Londrina County, Paraná, Southern Brazil. Six owners of horse farms situated in Cambé, Santa Fé, Guaraci and Londrina municipalities participated in the study. All farms were located in areas where BSF has not been reported. A total of 273 horses were sampled and the… Show more

“…provide the comparative results needed for effective public health action. In PR, the first confirmed SFR case occurred in 2006 (14), resulting in a number of subsequent studies in the state (51)(52)(53)(54)(55)(56)(57)(58)(59)(60). The majority of these have provided basic information concerning rickettsia circulation in a given area, with little direct attempt to study case association or use Surveillance System data.…”

“…These other studies indicated positive rates ranging from 5.5 to 38.5% in horses, from 0 to 19.1% in dogs and from 4.7 to 21.0% in humans (BATISTA et al, 2010;FREITAS et al, 2010;OTOMURA et al, 2010;TAMEKUNI et al, 2010;TAMEKUNI et al, 2011;TOLEDO et al, 2011), according to the geographic area. The low prevalence found in this study suggests that dogs and horses are exposed to a small vector population infected by Rickettsiae.…”

“…Screening by titles and abstracts left 55 studies for full-text review. An assessment of full texts found 27 studies that complied with all eligibility criteria [ 11 , 13 , 15 , [21] , [22] , [23] , [24] , [25] , [26] , [27] , [28] , [29] , [30] , [31] , [32] , [33] , [34] , [35] , [36] , [37] , [38] , [39] , [40] , [41] , [42] , [43] , [44] ].
