seroprevalence of seven pathogens transmitted by the ixodes ricinus tick in forestry workers 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
lyme borreliosis incidence in two french departments: correlation with infection of ixodes ricinus ticks by borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato.we conducted a prospective study to estimate the lyme borreliosis incidence in two rural french departments, meuse and puy-de-dôme. concurrently, we investigated the prevalence of ticks infected with borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (sl) and anaplasma phagocytophilum. the incidence of lyme borreliosis decreased from 156 to 109/100,000 inhabitants in meuse and from 117 to 76/100,000 inhabitants in puy-de-dôme in 2004 and 2005, respectively, corresponding to a decrease in the density of ixodes rici ...200717979533
