seroprevalence of seven pathogens transmitted by the ixodes ricinus tick in forestry workers in france.in order to assess the level of occupational exposure to the main pathogens transmitted by the ixodes ricinus tick, a seroprevalence study was performed on serum samples collected in 2003 from 2975 forestry workers of northeastern france. the global seroprevalence estimated for the seven pathogens studied was 14.1% (419/2975) for borrelia burgdorferi sl, 5.7% (164/2908) for francisella tularensis, 2.3% (68/2941) for tick-borne encephalitis virus, 1.7% (50/2908) for anaplasma phagocytophilum and ...201627237545
prevalence of borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato and anaplasmataceae members in ixodes ricinus ticks in alsace, a focus of lyme borreliosis endemicity in france.due to the high lyme borreliosis incidence in alsace, in northeastern france, we investigated in 2003-2004 three cantons in this region in order to determine the density of ixodes ricinus ticks infected by borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato and anaplasmataceae. the peak density of nymphs infected by b. burgdorferi sensu lato at munster and guebwiller, where the disease incidence was high, was among the highest reported in europe (105 and 114 per 100 m(2), respectively). in contrast, the peak densit ...200616598024
[borrelia strains that cause erythema migrans in alsace, france].in europe, borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto, borrelia afzelii and borrelia garinii are known as pathogens among the borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato group. since it is not yet known which borrelia are responsible for lyme borreliosis in france, the objective of this study was to identify the species of borrelia responsible for erythema migrans in the region of alsace, france.200211937923
[epidemiology of lyme borreliosis and neuroborreliosis in france].lyme borreliosis (lb) is a systemic disease called neuroborreliosis (nb) when neurological symptoms are pre-eminent. lb is a zoonosis caused by borrelia bacteria transmitted by ixodes tick-bite. because of the absence of a national registry, epidemiology of lb in france is not well known. moreover, diagnosis of nb may be difficult because of the various clinical forms. acute meningoradiculitis is the most common presentation, but pauci-symptomatic meningitis, encephalitis, myelitis, polyneuropat ...200919447458
[the level of knowledge of general practitioners regarding the early phase of lyme borreliosis. survey conducted among 106 general practitioners].determine the level of knowledge of the general practitioners on the early phase of lyme borreliosis in an endemic area and notably to define the attention paid to the use and interpretation of serologic investigations for the treatment of patients with erythema migrans.200314663387
[seroprevalence of lyme borreliosis and tick-borne encephalitis in workers at risk, in eastern france].the aim of this article was to assess the seroprevalence of lyme borreliosis and tick-borne encephalitis (tbe) among occupationally exposed forest workers.200818722066
comparative population genomics of the borrelia burgdorferi species complex reveals high degree of genetic isolation among species and underscores benefits and constraints to studying intra-specific epidemiological processes.lyme borreliosis, one of the most frequently contracted zoonotic diseases in the northern hemisphere, is caused by bacteria belonging to different genetic groups within the borrelia burgdorferi species complex, which are transmitted by ticks among various wildlife reservoirs, such as small mammals and birds. these features make the borrelia burgdorferi species complex an attractive biological model that can be used to study the diversification and the epidemiology of endemic bacterial pathogens. ...201424721934
