    Sammanfattning : Lyme neuroborreliosis, the infection of the nervous system by the tick-borne bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi, is a common infection in the temperate parts of the Northern hemisphere. Manifestations of the disease include facial palsy, radicular pain, sensory disturbances, and occasionally CNS symptoms such as confusion and paraparesis. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Lyme disease is a tick-transmitted illness caused by Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (s.l.), a group of spirochetes with at least three human pathogenic species, B. burgdorferi sensu stricto, B. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Epidemiological and clinical characteristics of Lyme borreliosis (LB) in Sweden are described through a one year surveillance-study. The findings differed only marginally when compared to studies from the United States indicating similar clinical presentation of the disease. Incidence was 69/100. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Contribution of the outer surface proteins of Borrelia burgdorferi s.l. to the pathogenesis of Lyme disease

    Författare :Maria Jonsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Borrelia burgdorferi; Lyme disease; Osp proteins; ospAB operon; gene regulation; pathogenicity;

    Sammanfattning : Borrelia burgdorferi s. l. is a spirochete which causes the multisystemic disorder Lyme disease. As the borreliae lack toxin production, the pathogenicity is thought to involve, at least in part, molecules from the outer surface. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Cytokine responses in human Lyme borreliosis : The role of T helper 1-like immunity and aspects of gender and co-exposure in relation to disease course

    Sammanfattning : Lyme borreliosis was first described some 30 years ago in the USA. Today, it is the most common vector borne disease in Europe and the USA. The disease can have multiple stages and symptoms can manifest from various parts of the body; joints, skin heart and nervous system. In Europe, neuroborreliosis is the most frequent late stage diagnosis. LÄS MER
