reported distribution of ixodes scapularis and ixodes pacificus (acari: ixodidae) in the united states.lyme disease, caused by infection with borrelia burgdorferi, is the most frequently reported arthropod-borne disease in the united states. to develop a national map of the distribution of the vectors of b. burgdorferi to humans (ixodes scapularis say and ixodes pacificus cooley & kohls ticks), we sent questionnaires to acarologists, health officials, and lyme disease researchers; surveyed the 1966-1996 medline data base; and reviewed 1907-1995 national tick collection data. tick collection metho ...19989775584
using exploratory data analysis to identify and predict patterns of human lyme disease case clustering within a multistate region, 2010-2014.lyme disease is the most commonly reported vectorborne disease in the united states. the objective of our study was to identify patterns of lyme disease reporting after multistate inclusion to mitigate potential border effects. county-level human lyme disease surveillance data were obtained from kentucky, maryland, ohio, pennsylvania, virginia, and west virginia state health departments. rate smoothing and local moran's i was performed to identify clusters of reporting activity and identify spat ...201728137676
the season for lyme disease: should ohio physicians be concerned? 19902325988
county-scale distribution of ixodes scapularis and ixodes pacificus (acari: ixodidae) in the continental united states.the blacklegged tick, ixodes scapularis say, is the primary vector to humans in the eastern united states of the lyme disease spirochete borrelia burgdorferi, as well as causative agents of anaplasmosis and babesiosis. its close relative in the far western united states, the western blacklegged tick ixodes pacificus cooley and kohls, is the primary vector to humans in that region of the lyme disease and anaplasmosis agents. since 1991, when standardized surveillance and reporting began, lyme dis ...201626783367
emergence of ixodes scapularis and borrelia burgdorferi, the lyme disease vector and agent, in ohio.lyme disease, the most common vector-borne disease in the united states, is caused by a tick-borne infection with borrelia burgdorferi. currently, ohio is considered by the centers for disease control and prevention (cdc) to be non-endemic for lyme disease. the low incidence of lyme disease in this state was largely attributed to the absence of the transmitting vector, ixodes scapularis, commonly known as the blacklegged tick. however, a tick surveillance program established by ohio department o ...201424926441
