detection of borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in mosquitoes (culicidae) in recreational areas of the city of szczecin.the mosquitoes were caught within the period of their highest activity, i.e. june august 2001, in recreational areas of the city of szczecin. spirochetes, borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato were detected in mosquitoes with the aid of the method of indirect immunofluorescence (ifa) using rabbit anti-borrelia burgdorferi antibodies and goat anti-rabbit igg marked with fluorescein isothiocyanate (fitc). a total of 639 mosquito females representing genera aëdes (99.1%) and culex (0.9%) were collected. ...200212088398
coexistence dna of borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato and babesia microti in ixodes ricinus ticks from north-western poland.the tick ixodes ricinus may carry microorganisms which cause serious human and animal diseases, i.a., the lyme disease (borreliosis), caused by the spirochaete borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato and babesiosis, induced by the protozoan babesia microti. both microbe species may co-occur in the same and other species of the genus tick and produce a mixed infection in humans and animals. the major objective of the study was to identify dna of b. burgdorferi and b. microti in the i. ricinus ticks colle ...200212088393
[isolation of borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in ticks ixodes ricinus by polymerase chain reaction (pcr)].attempts were made to identify the causative orgamsm of lyme disease in szczecin from tick ixodes ricinus as a vector. ticks were collected in 1997 year in forest areas of szczecin, from localites associated with numerous attendance of people. the method used in this study was the polymerase chain reaction (pcr) on the flagellin structural gene fla of borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto. the flagellin pcr primer set reaction was conservative for b. burgdorferi sensu stricto, b. afzelii and b. gar ...200016886357
[anaplasma phagocytophila and protozoans of babesia genus in dogs from endemic areas of lyme disease in north-western poland].infections caused by the spirochete borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato may be accompanied by other microorganisms, such as anaplasma, ehrlichia and babesia. these pathogens are transmitted by the ticks and are a risk to humans and animals. ixodes ricinus ticks collected from recreational areas of szczecin and northwestern poland contained dna of the pathogens mentioned above and cases of double and triple coinfection have been documented. the aim of this paper was to determine if dogs suspect to ti ...200416865968
identification of borrelia burgdorferi genospecies inducing lyme disease in dogs from western poland.canine lyme borreliosis may be caused by three borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato genospecies. the prevalence of infection by borrelia species was determined by nested polymerase chain reaction (pcr) and restriction fragment length polymorphism (rflp) with the enzyme fsp4h i in the blood of dogs naturally infested by ticks in an endemic region of poland. blood samples were collected from 98 dogs of various breeds, delivered to the veterinary clinic in szczecin (northwestern poland) for various reas ...200515782655

serodiagnosis of borreliosis: indirect immunofluorescence assay, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and immunoblotting.lyme disease is an infectious, multi-system, tick-borne disease caused by genospecies of borrelia burgdorferi bacteria sensu lato, characterized by remarkable heterogeneity. in this situation choosing an optimal antigen array for diagnostic tests seems problematic. the serological tests for borrelia routinely done in laboratories often produce ambiguous results, which makes a proper diagnosis rather complicated and thus delays the implementation of an appropriate treatment regimen. thirty-seven ...201121258869
