Determine the Presence of Pathogens on Ticks in the Mekong Delta Region

Tick-borne diseases are an emerging medical and veterinary problem. Ticks are implicated in the transmission of different pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, protozoa and filarial nematodes. However, up to now researches on these pathogens in Vietnam which has been limited, especially in the Mekong Delta region (Southwestern of Vietnam). We have collected 4763 tick individuals of 7 species. 5 genus. 2 families (Argas sp.. Apononmta crassipes, Aponomma gervaisi. Rhipicephalus (Rhipicephalus) haemaphỵsaloides, Rhipicephalus (Rh.) sanguineus, Boophilus microplus, Ixodes (Ixodes) granulatus) at 8 sites in the Mekong delta region on the rainy season and dry season from 2015 to 2016 which determine the presence of pathogens (Rickettsia spp. and Orientia tsutsugamushi) on ticks. A total of 1457 tick individuals which were subdivided into 299 samples, that determine the presence of Rickettsia spp. and Oriental tsutsugamushi. Initial results, we have determined the presence of pathogen on ticks.
