Rabies virus ticks Pholeoixodes rugicollis


Essais de transmission de la rage au furet par un ixodide: Pholeoixodes rugicollis (Schulze et Schlottke, 1929). - Severa! experiments of inoculation with rabies virus were performed in the coelomic cavity of the tick: Pholeoixodes rugicollis. These ticks were unable to keep the virulence of the inoculum and unable to transmit it to their host: the ferret. Likewise, ticks were unable to keep the virulence inoculated in the skin of a ferret at the points of attachment of these parasites. In ali cases, eggs laid by ticks were avirulent. These results lead to a rejection of the hypothesis of a reservoir role played by the ticks, nevertheless, experiments with the fox and its specifie ticks are needed.
