prevalence of borrelia burgdorferi s. l. in ixodes ricinus ticks from four localities in bavaria, a part of a larger survey a total of 599 ixodes ricinus ticks collected from four locations (neustadt an der waldnaab, amberg, poppenricht and lintach) in the north of the upper palatinate in bavaria were investigated for infection with borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (s. l.) species using the 5s-23s intergenic spacer of rrna gene as a target in a nested pcr (rijpkema et al., 1995) and a sequencing method. overall, 15.8% ticks were infected with b. burgdorferi s. i. borrelia afzelii (43.1%) w ...201223045802

[tick infestation and the prevalence of borrelia burgdorferi and babesia divergens in cattle in bavaria].during the grazing period 2002 319 cattle from 31 farms located in 6 districts of southern bavaria were examined for the presence of ticks in 4- to 5-week intervals, and 287 serum samples were tested for the presence of antibodies against borrelia burgdorferi and babesia divergens. ticks were detected in all 31 farms with a mean prevalence of 69%. 3218 out of 3453 collected ticks were ixodes ricinus; 139 nymphs, 19 larvae and 77 damaged adult specimens could only be determined to the genus level ...200617009719
antibodies against borrelia burgdorferi in bavarian forest workers.the sera of 496 forest workers (fw), 44 customs officials and 20 other persons in outdoor professions from different areas of bavaria were tested for antibodies against borrelia burgdorferi (strain b 31) by indirect immunofluorescence. in sera previously absorbed with treponema phagedenis ultrasonicate, significantly elevated igg antibody titers were found in 69 cases, in 68 fw (13.7%) and 1 custom agent. in accordance with previous observations the distribution of positive results showed a dist ...19873296565
[incidence of antibodies to borrelia burgdorferi in dogs in small animal practice in north bavaria].with help of indirect immunofluorescent assay antibodies were detected to borrelia burgdorferi, agent of lyme borreliosis in 46 (35.5%) serum samples of 130 randomly selected dogs of a small animal practice in northern bavaria. a positive reaction of the indirect immunofluorescent assay was demonstrated in 15 cases in a serum dilution of 1:64, in 9 cases in a serum dilution of 1:128, in 5 cases in a serum dilution of 1:256, in 2 cases in a serum dilution of 1:512, in 3 cases in a serum dilution ...19911772393
[tick-borne encephalitis and lyme borreliosis. spread of pathogens and risk of illness in a tick-borne encephalitis region].a knowledge of the distribution of tick-borne agents and the related risks of contracting diseases are essential to ensure an appropriate response between hysteria and disregard, and to decide the appropriateness of vaccination. illustrated by the german town of lohr a. m. (bavaria), the prevalence of tbe-virus and borrelia burgdorferi in ticks was investigated and compared, and the respective risk of contracting disease from a bite assessed. using the polymerase chain reaction (pcr), a total of ...200212613267
assessing the risk of human granulocytic anaplasmosis and lyme borreliosis after a tick bite in bavaria, date, only isolated incidences of human granulocytic anaplasmosis (hga) have been reported in europe. however, entomological studies in bavaria, germany showed a prevalence of anaplasma phagocytophilum of between 2 and 9.5% in the tick vector ixodes ricinus. in this study we assessed the risk of pathogenic a. phagocytophilum infection after a tick bite in bavaria. the seroprevalence of anti-borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (s.l.) antibodies was investigated as an indicator of past exposure, se ...201526338146
