  1. 11. Molecular and serological tools for clinical diagnostics of Lyme borreliosis - can the laboratory analysis be improved?

    Författare :Malin Lager; Anna J. Henningsson; Peter Wilhelmsson; Per-Eric Lindgren; Andreas Matussek; Fredrik Elgh; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Lyme borreliosis (LB) is caused by spirochetes within the Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato complex and is the most common tick-transmitted disease in the northern hemisphere. The transmission of the spirochetes to humans in Europe is done by the Ixodes ricinus ticks, which can also transmit the relapsing fever species Borrelia miyamotoi. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Lyme borreliosis (LB) is the most common vector-borne disease in the Northern Hemisphere. The infection is caused by spirochetes belonging to the Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato complex, and it is transmitted to humans by ticks. LÄS MER

  4. 14. Clinical and Immunological Aspects of Lyme borreliosis

    Författare :Johanna Sjöwall; Pia Forsberg; Ekerfelt Ekerfelt; Jan Ernerudh; Jarmo Oksi; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Lyme borreliosis (LB) is a tick-borne infection caused by spirochetes of the Borrelia (B.) burgdorferi sensu lato complex. The infection is associated with several clinical features, of which erythema migrans (EM) and neuroborreliosis (NB) are the most common in Europe. The prognosis after antibiotic therapy is generally good. LÄS MER
