05 Nov 2015

Positive identification of Cowdria ruminantium in Amblyomma hebraeum was obtained by direct and indirect fluorescent antibody techniques, and by light and electron microscopy. Colonies of organisms could only be demonstrated with certainty in the epithelial cells and lumen of the alimentary tract of ticks.
