prevalence of bartonella henselae and borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato dna in ixodes ricinus ticks in europe.bartonella spp. can cause persistent bloodstream infections in humans and animals. to determine whether bartonella henselae is present in questing ixodes ricinus ticks, we analyzed the prevalence of b. henselae dna among tick stages compared to the prevalence of dna from borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, the pathogen most frequently transmitted by ticks. b. henselae dna was present with a prevalence of up to approximately 40% in tick populations sampled in four european sites (eberdingen, germany ...201020061459
transmission of the agent of lyme disease on a subtropical determine whether the agent of lyme disease (borrelia burgdorferi) perpetuates on a subtropical island, we recorded prevalence of spirochetal infection in ixodes ricinus ticks collected on madeira island and identified local reservoir hosts of both pathogen and vector tick. spirochetes infect at least 1.3% of the nymphal ticks collected in a particular site. subadult ticks frequently parasitized norway as well as black rats on the island, and lyme disease spirochetes were found in these hosts ...19948066380
