Therefore, rodents could play a critical role as reservoir hosts
burgdorferi, is affected by the presence of strongly and weakly competent reservoir hosts
in the same communities (34,35).
Laboratory evaluation of a rodenticide-insecticide, Coumavec[R], against Rhombomys opimus, the main reservoir host
of zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis in Iran.
They found white-footed mice to be much more competent reservoir hosts
than the other species tested.
Here donkeys and dogs are considered to be potential reservoir hosts
, and humans are only incidental hosts (they are sink but not source of infection).
Isolation and detection of Leishmania species among naturally infected Rhombomis opimus, a reservoir host
of zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis in Turkmen Sahara, northeast of Iran.
Rodents belonging to Gerbillinae subfamily are the main reservoir hosts
of zoonotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (ZCL) in Iran.
However, bats have been implicated as reservoir hosts
for viral human pathogens, such as paramyxoviruses (3) and rabies virus and related lyssaviruses (4).
This animal serves as a keystone host for all life stages of the principal tick vector (Amblyomma americanum) and is perhaps the most important vertebrate reservoir host
to birds should be investigated, and additional studies that investigate the reservoir host
range of Bartonella spp.
uralensis mice need to confirm whether these rodents have a role as a potential reservoir host
