abundance of questing ticks and molecular evidence for pathogens in ticks in three parks of emilia-romagna region of northern italy.infectious and parasitic diseases transmitted by ticks, such as lyme diseases, granulocytic anaplasmosis and piroplasmosis, have been frequently reported in europe, with increasing attention to them as an emerging zoonotic problem. the presented study was performed to assess the distribution and the density of questing ticks in three regional parks of emilia-romagna region of northern italy, and to seek molecular evidence of potential human pathogens in tick populations.201526403115
presence of anti-borrelia burgdorferi antibodies and borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato dna in samples of subjects in an area of the northern italy in the period 2002-2008.lyme borreliosis (lb) is a multisystemic disease caused by borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato complex transmitted to humans by ixodes ticks and whose epidemiology is poorly investigated in europe. in this study an epidemiologic survey on the prevalence of the causative agent of such infectious disease was performed in the area of parma (northern italy) during 2002-2008. serum samples belonging to 2336 patients and cerebrospinal fluid samples (belonging to 42 of the same patients) were analyzed for ...201121397424
