IA3010 Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato
Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, a spiral microaerophilic bacterium is the causing agent for Lyme Disease. Infection takes place by the bit of an infected Tick (in Germany: Ixodes ricinus). Depending on regions up to 30% of tick are thought to are infected with Borrelia. Lyme borreliosis is one of the most frequent tick borne diseases worldwide.
Disease is not quite easy to diagnose because a direct pathogen detection is hardly possible and symptoms are variable. Diagnosis by detection of serum antibodies is therefor an important tool.
