seroprevalence of lyme disease and genospecies of borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in patients diagnosed with borreliosis in the province of warmia-masuria in north-eastern poland.between 2009-2010, a group of 259 patients suspected of contracting lyme disease were examined in the provincial sanitary-epidemiological station in olsztyn for the presence of igm and igg against specific borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (s.l.) genospecies antigens by immunoblot. a total of 27.4% and 29.0% of the blood serum samples showed positive and uncertain results for igm and igg antibodies. the majority of positive and uncertain results were found in patients aged 30-40 years (30%) for ig ...201222742788
occurrence of borrelia spirochaetes in ticks (acari, ixodidae) collected in the forest areas in olsztyn province (north central poland).in 1993, 2178 out of 3816 ixodes ricinus and 45 out of 82 dermacentor reticulatus collected from vegetation at 35 sites and removed from hunter-killed deer in olsztyn province (n. c. poland) were examined individually for the presence of borrelia spirochaetes. detection of spirochaetes was carried out by the routine indirect immunofluorescence assay (ifa) using polyclonal antibody anti-b. burgdorferi, strain 1 b 29. borreliae, presumably b. burgdorferi, were evident in 192 (11.5%) i. ricinus (ny ...19937580351
the first isolation of borrelia burgdorferi from ixodes ricinus (acari, ixodidae) ticks in poland.among ticks ixodes ricinus collected in april 1994 in the forest near fraknowo (olsztyn province, n. c. poland), 17 ticks were evaluated for borrelia infection by cultivating in the bsk-h medium (sigma). the ticks were examined in five pools--four of 3 females and one pool of 5 nymphs. spirochaetes were cultured successfully only from one pool of females and identified as borrelia burgdorferi with monoclonal antibodies: h 9724, h 5332, h 3ts and 11 g 1 by indirect immunofluorescence assay (ifa). ...19937580352
