Ticks:- vectors of CCHF

Dear All,


We are at final stage of planning to conduct a nationwide survey for collection of ticks: vectors of Crimean Congo H Fever. At present we are facing some problem in identification of tick due to some scanty work on taxonomy of ticks. Do someone have some expertise in this field?

  • Dear Sir, 

    I am the head of parasitology department in  Khon Kaen University, Thailand.

    Actually my work focus on liver fluke and cholangiocarcinoma and  right now we are moving to do tick borne diseases  in Thailand. So we identify tick by taxonomy and molecular technique. we can work together. 

    Please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • Hello,
    I am Steve Ngoy, i'm living currently in Kisangani where I specialize in ticks on pets at the University of Kisangani. And I am also interested in the vector agents, responsible for the many diseases in humans and animals, that they can transmit to their hosts. So, with the experience I have on identifications I think I can help you on this point.
    Thank you very much.

  • Dear Sir, 
    We are members of tick research group in Gaziosmanpasa Univesity, Department of Biology, Tokat TURKEY. We are working on taxonomy of ixodid ticks and presence of tick-borne diseases in various ixodid tick species in Turkey. We have experience on determination of species diversity and seasonal activity of ixodid ticks infesting on human and animals and detection of tick-borne pathogens such as CCHFV (Bursalı et al 2010, 2011). If you want, we would like to colloborate with you and participate your project for taxonomic identification of ticks and detection of CCHFV.
