Se llevo a cabo un estudio descriptivo transversal, no probabilistico con un muestreo por conveniencia que pretendio determinar la seroprevalencia de anticuerpos para Borrelia
burgdorferi en el departamento de Cordoba.

Laboratory reagents: Elisa and western - blot assays for antibody determination against borrelia

The incidence of LB in southern Sweden was 69/100 000 in 1995 (26), whilst the rate of seroprevalence of Borrelia
IgG antibodies was 3.
Borreliosis are a group of globally distributed infectious diseases caused by spirochete bacteria of the genus Borrelia
that are transmitted by ticks and lice acting as vectors.
To investigate the reliability of the new test, Dr Audun Aase, from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, and his colleagues collected blood samples both from people who had been suffering from Lyme disease-like symptoms for several years and previously tested positive for Borrelia
and/or Babesia by the LM-method (21 people), and healthy controls with no known history of tick bites (41 people).
Among the five blood specimens tested, the median oppA1 copy number was 180 times higher than that found in 13 specimens testing positive for Borrelia
burgdorferi during the same time period.
Until now, scientists thought that the tick-borne illness was caused by only one species of bacteria, called Borrelia
Other postulated causes include autoimmunity, inheritance, local trauma, focal scleroderma, endocrine and metabolic disorders, and other factors, including Borrelia
burgdorferi sensu lato infections (1-4).
anserina is a pathogen of high importance in poultry industry which causes fowl spirocheatosis.
Based upon similarities with recognized human clinical syndromes in Europe that were of unknown etiology, but associated with the bite of Ixodes ricinus ticks, the causative agent was isolated from North American Ixodes scapularis ticks in 1982 , and subsequently named Borrelia
burgdorferi [3, 4].
Of particular concern is the deer tick (Ixodes scapularis), which is host to at least five potentially dangerous pathogens including Borrelia
burgdorferi, Babesia microti, Anaplasma phagocytophilium, Borrelia
miyamotoi, and Deer Tick Virus.
