small mammals as reservoir hosts for borrelia in 1992-1993, a total of 29 isolates of borrelia were obtained from small mammals captured in taiga forests of the perm' region: 26 isolates were obtained from clethrionomus glareolus and one each from c. rufocanus, microtus oeconomus, and apodemus sylvaticus. isolation of borrelia was performed by plating the animal material on bsk-ii medium. most isolates (86.2%) were obtained from the urinary bladder, the rest from the heart and spleen. according to the results of ifa with a set of monoclonal ...19957549164
[long-term dynamics of the epizootic process in natural foci of ixodid tick borreliosis in mountain taiga forests of the middle ural].during eleven spring-summer seasons (1992-2002), the dynamics of the epizootic process in natural foci of ixodid tick-borne borrelioses (itbb) were studied in taiga forests of the middle ural (perm province, russia). in these foci, borrelia garinii and b. afzelii circulate, and their main vector is the ixodes persulcatus tick. main parameters of the epizootic process were calculated for each season. in four seasons (1993, 1996, 1999 and 2002), the parameters characterizing the abundance of unfed ...200415174388
[etiological structure of complex ixodes tickborne borreliosis natural foci of southern taiga].89 primary isolates of b. garinii and 72 b. afzelii from different developmental phases of i. persulcatus, i. trianguliceps and form small mammalian hosts of borrelia were obtained at an area of ca. 30 km2 located in low-mountain southern taiga forests (perm region). the area provides home for two borrelia species (b. garinii and b. afzeli) and their natural carrier ixodes persulcatus. 23 isolate of b.garnii were obtained from skin biopsies and blood samples taken in patients with borreliosis. t ...201122168033
[risk of human infection with ixodes tick-borne relapsing fever in different regional subzones of the perm region].serological and epidemiological surveys covered 2407 persons in 20 populated localities situated in all large geographical and regional subdivisions (subzones) in the perm region. indirect immunofluorescence tests revealed serum immunoglobulins to borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato. antibodies in 1:40 or higher dilution were found in nearly 5 to 11% of the dwellers of localities in the subzones of south taiga, coniferous broad-leaved forests, and forest steppe; about 3-7% and 1-6% of them were pres ...200212224266
