Emergence of a new pathogenic Ehrlichia species, Wisconsin and Minnesota, 2009.

New Eng. J. Med., 365, 422-429, 2011.

Order of authorship in the original publication: Pritt, Sloan, Johnson. Discovery of a new species of Ehrlichia, initially denoted as "Wisconsin and Minnesota, 2009," that was not related to E. chaffeensiis or E. ewingii but is similar to E.muris. Digital text from PubMedCentral at this link.

Human infection with Ehrlichia muris-like pathogen, United States, 2007-2013.

New Eng. J. Med., 365, 422-429, 2015.

Order of authorship in the original publication: Johnson, Schiffman, Davis, Pritt. The authors, found some commonality in this pathogen, originally designated generally as "Wisconsin and Minnesota, 2009" with the mouse strain, and identified the vector of what appeared to be a new species as the Ixodes scapularis tick.

Proposal to reclassify Ehrlichia muris as Ehrlichia muris subsp. muris subsp. nov. and description of Ehrlichia muris subsp. eauclairensis subsp. nov., a newly recognized tick borne pathogen of humans.

Int. J. Syst. Evol. Microbiol., 67, 2121-2126, 2017.

Order of authorship in the original publication: Pritt, Allderdice, Sloan. By extremely complex genotyping methods and fine electron microscopic analysis of the organism, the authors showed that the infectious agent is a new human subspecies similar to the murine pathogen that is conveyed from the murine reservoirs to humans by the tick vector. The pathogen was named for Eau Claire, a city in Wisconsin, where the patient was infected. Full text available from PubMedCentral at this link.
