Abstract

Seventy five percent of emerging diseases comprises zoonoses, most of which originated from wild animal infection. About 22.8% out of them are considered vector-borne diseases. In this way, monitoring the presence of pathogens in wild animals in niches shared with humans becomes an important preventive method of zoonotic infections, given the current search for the integrated concept of "One Health". The families Bartonellaceae and Anaplasmataceae comprise gram-negative, intracellular facultative and obligatory bacteria, respectively, belonging to the alpha-proteobacteria group, which have been identified in a wide variety of mammals, including humans. Hemotrophic mycoplasmas are gram-negative epieritrocitary bacteria, which can cause asymptomatic infections to severe hemolytic anemia, both in animals and in humans. Little is known about the occurrence of agents Anaplasmataceae, Bartonellaceae and Mycoplasmaceae in bats and their ectoparasites in Brazil. Bats can be parasitized by a great diversity of ectoparasites, especially the Streblidae and Nycteribiidae family flies, and the Spinturnicidae and Macronyssidae mites. Considering the pathogens of interest in public health mentioned above, the vast occurrence of animals of the order Chiroptera and the scarce knowledge about the interactions of these agents with these possible reservoirs and their ectoparasites, the aim of the present study is to obtain information of epidemiological importance on the occurrence and genetic diversity of Anaplasmataceae, Bartonellaceae and Mycoplasmaceae agents in peri-urban bats in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul state, in Central-Western Brazil.
