horses and borrelia: immunoblot patterns with five borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato strains and sera from horses of various stud farms in austria and from the spanish riding school in vienna.grazing animals are continuously exposed to tick bites. consequently, one may expect that horses will become infected with the various pathogens carried by ticks including borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato. whether horses may develop clinical disease due to this pathogen is controversially discussed. we were interested to learn about the infection of horses with borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato within one season by studying the dynamics of the humoral immune response in paired blood samples. the ma ...200212141766
prevalence of borreliae in ixodid ticks from a floodplain forest ixodid ticks were sampled in a floodplain forest ecosystem along the lower reaches of the thaya (dyje) river in south moravia (czech republic) and lower austria during the period 1989-2002. the ticks were examined by dark-field microscopy for borreliae (borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, the agent of lyme borreliosis), and attempts were made to culture the spirochetes in bsk-h medium from preparations containing their high numbers. isolated borreliae were identified by pcr-rflp analys ...200312674689
