serologic survey of the wild boar (sus scrofa) for borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato.sera of 642 wild boars (sus scrofa) shot by hunters in ten administrative regions of the czech republic during 1995-2000, were tested by indirect hemagglutination assay (iha) for the presence of anti-borrelia igg. antibodies to borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (bb) were detected in serum samples from all 10 regions, and overall seroprevalence rate was 12.8%. titres of antibodies ranged from 1:80 to 1:640. borrelia antibodies were most frequent in the animals from three administrative regions of t ...200918973452
vertical distribution of the tick ixodes ricinus and tick-borne pathogens in the northern moravian mountains correlated with climate warming (jeseníky mts., czech republic).a study of the vertical distribution of the common tick ixodes ricinus and tick-borne pathogens--tick-borne encephalitis virus (tbev) and genospecies of borrelia burgdorferi s.l.--was performed in the highest part of the jeseniky mountain area (the hrubý jesenik mts. with the highest summit praded, 1,491 m above see level). altogether 1,253 specimens of all tick stages (607 larvae, 614 nymphs, 8 females and 24 males) were collected at the altitude 990-1,300 m above sea level on 12 collection sit ...200920020603
[variations in the occurrence of borrelia in the tick, ixodes ricinus (l.) in the olomouc district].examinations of 1,998 ticks ixodes ricinus in the district of olomouc revealed 182 cases of borrelia, i.e. in 9.1% ticks. prevalence in males is 10.7%, in females 12.8% and in nymphs 7.0%. a certain coincidence was observed between mosquito incidence, in particular during the first half of the year, and borrelia prevalence in ticks in the course of the following year, with prevalence variations manifested in tick imagos only. a hypothesis is formulated that mosquitos feeding on larger animals, w ...19948168165
