infections following tickbites. tick-borne encephalitis and lyme borreliosis--a prospective epidemiological study from tyrol.we present here a prospective study on infections following tickbites in military recruits in the province of tyrol (austria). 84 recruits experienced tickbites and underwent clinical and serological examination twice at four-week intervals for signs of tick borne encephalitis (tbe)-virus or borrelia burgdorferi infections. 56 and 50 recruits could be evaluated for tbe-virus and borrelia infection, respectively. whereas no recruit was found with clinical or laboratory evidence of tbe-virus infec ...19883215687
serological evidence for human granulocytic ehrlichiosis in western order to evaluate the seroprevalence of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis in western austria, sera from 357 tyrolean blood donors were tested by an immunofluorescence assay. to assess the concomitant seroreactivity against borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, sera were further investigated by enzyme-linked immunoassay and western blot. thirty-two sera (9.0%) showed antibodies to anaplasma phagocytophilum at a titre of 1:128 or higher, and 30 (8.4%) were seroreactive against borrelia burgdorferi sen ...200312938008
lyme neuroborreliosis: aetiology and diagnosis of facial palsy in children from tyrol.lyme neuroborreliosis (lnb) is the second most common manifestation of borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (s. l.) infection in europe. lnb is difficult to differentiate from other aetiologies of aseptic meningitis. diagnostic criteria for lnb in children are not established. therfore, based on the epidemiology of lnb in children from tyrol, the aim of our study was to point out the necessity of a clear definition of pediatric lnb to avoid underdiagnosis and overtreatment.201020455197
human seroprevalence against borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in two comparable regions of the eastern alps is not correlated to vector infection rates.seroprevalences were determined by testing sera of 1607 blood donors from north, east, and south tyrol. in the tyrols, the continental divide delimitates areas with high seroprevalences of igg antibodies against borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in the north (7.2%) from areas with low seroprevalences in the south (1.5%). to determine borrelia prevalences in unfed ixodes ricinus ticks, 755 questing ticks were tested by pcr. prevalences in nymphal and adult ticks were found to be 19.7% (n=132) and 2 ...201525661649
