    J Clin Microbiol 39:3666-71. 2001
    ..This is the first study of tick-borne Borrelia and Ehrlichia in Norway and the lowest reported B. garinii prevalence in Northern Europe. The prevalence of the Ehrlichia-like organism is described for the first time in questing ticks...

    Department of Medical Microbiology, Telemark Biomedical Centre, Skien, Norway
    Clin Microbiol Infect 14:498-500. 2008
    ..Although the isolates were genetically heterogeneous, there was evidence of a limited degree of clonal dissemination...

    A Jenkins
    A S Telelab, Skien, Norway
    J Wildl Dis 37:201-3. 2001
    ..Ehrlichia sp. was detected by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in blood from the calf, and in the ticks. Sequence determination identified it as E. phagocytophila. This is the first report of ehrlichiosis in moose...

    N Grude
    Department of Microbiology, Telemark Biomedical Centre, Skien, Norway
    Clin Microbiol Infect 13:208-11. 2007
    ..Russian UTI isolates belonged more often to phylogroup A and possessed fewer virulence genes than did Norwegian isolates. UTI isolates of E. coli were genetically heterogeneous and had a high degree of antimicrobial sensitivity...
