[the prevalence of ixodes ricinus ticks (acari, ixodidae) in the forested areas of gdansk, sopot, and gdynia and their infection rate with borrelia burgdorferi spirochetes].data are presented on the variable patterns on the seasonal activity of ixodes ricinus questing on vegetation in 6 study sites in the forested areas of gdaƄsk, sopot and gdynia in 1993-1995. a total of 8992 specimens collected there show that ticks frequently occupy habitats closely associated with man. out of them 5775 (4328 nymphs, 713 females and 680 males) collected in 1994 and 1995 were examined individually for borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato-the etiologic agent of lyme borreliosis-using i ...19979333838
coinfection of ixodes ricinus (acari: ixodidae) in northern poland with the agents of lyme borreliosis (lb) and human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (hge).adult ixodes ricinus ticks were collected from pomerania province, northern poland, to determine the presence of infection with agents of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (hge) and lyme borreliosis by using the polymerase chain reaction (pcr). of the 424 ticks 19.2% and 11.6% contained ehrlichiae and spirochetes, respectively. frequency of single infection with the hge agent was 63/424 while frequency of single infection with borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato was 28/424. as many as 21/424 ticks (5% ...200212141746
[occurrence of genomic species of borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in populations of ixodes ricinus ticks from west pomerania].the aim of this study was to determine the incidence of borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato infections in ixodes ricinus ticks from recreational areas of the province of west pomerania. ticks (nymphs and adults) were collected between april and october 2000 and 2001 from 10 sampling sites. the presence of the spirochete, borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, was confirmed with an indirect fluorescence assay (ifa) and the polymerase chain reaction (pcr). in addition, a nested pcr technique was used to det ...200214601491
ixodes ricinus as a vector of borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, anaplasma phagocytophilum and babesia microti in urban and suburban forests.in the suburban and urban forests in the cities of gdansk, sopot and gdynia (northern poland), ixodes ricinus ticks should be considered as the vector of pathogenic microorganisms that may cause significant diseases in wild and domestic animals and humans. these microorganisms include etiologic agents of lyme disease, human anaplasmosis (ha) and babesiosis: borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, anaplasma phagocytophilum and babesia microti, respectively. dna extracts from 701 ticks collected in 15 lo ...200415236507
[prevalence of borreliosis among forestry workers in kujawsko-pomorskie voivodeship].prevalence and clinical manifestation of borreliosis were analyzed. evaluation of frequency of anti-borrelia burgdorferi in sera collected from forestry workers were performed too.200717702441
