- Q fever: persistence of antigenic non-viable cell residues of Coxiella burnetii in the host--implications for post Q fever infection fatigue syndrome and other chronic sequelaeB P Marmion
Q Fever Research Group, SA Pathology Hanson Institute, Adelaide, Australia
QJM 102:673-84. 2009..Attempts to isolate the coxiella in standard cell culture and susceptible mice by serial passage of PCR positive PBMC and bone marrow were negative...
- Long-term persistence after acute Q fever of non-infective Coxiella burnetii cell components, including antigensO A Sukocheva
Q Fever Research Group, Hanson Institute, Adelaide, South Australia
QJM 103:847-63. 2010..Attempts to isolate a strain of C.b. in A/J mice, and cell culture from PCR positive PBMC and bone marrow were consistently negative. The detailed composition of the persisting coxiella residues remains to be defined...
- Long-term persistence of Coxiella burnetii after acute primary Q feverB P Marmion
Q Fever Research Group, Infectious Diseases Laboratories, IMVS and Hanson Institute, Adelaide, South Australia
QJM 98:7-20. 2005..Long-term persistence of C. burnetii in infected animals was established in the 1950s and 60s, but the implications for human Q fever are not fully explored...
- Immune response genes in the post-Q-fever fatigue syndrome, Q fever endocarditis and uncomplicated acute primary Q feverK Helbig
Q fever Research Group IMVS and Hanson Institute, Adelaide, Australia
QJM 98:565-74. 2005..DISCUSSION: These immunogenetic differences support the concept of different immune states in chronic Q fever, determined by genetic variations in host immune responses, rather than by solely properties of Coxiella burnetii...
