Nervous system infections caused by tick-borne spirochetes of the BORRELIA BURGDORFERI GROUP. The disease may affect elements of the central or peripheral nervous system in isolation or in combination. Common clinical manifestations include a lymphocytic meningitis, cranial neuropathy (most often a facial neuropathy), POLYRADICULOPATHY, and a mild loss of memory and other cognitive functions. Less often more extensive inflammation involving the central nervous system (encephalomyelitis) may occur. In the peripheral nervous system, B. burgdorferi infection is associated with mononeuritis multiplex and polyradiculoneuritis. (From J Neurol Sci 1998 Jan 8;153(2):182-91)
An infectious disease caused by a spirochete, BORRELIA BURGDORFERI, which is transmitted chiefly by Ixodes dammini (see IXODES) and pacificus ticks in the United States and Ixodes ricinis (see IXODES) in Europe. It is a disease with early and late cutaneous manifestations plus involvement of the nervous system, heart, eye, and joints in variable combinations. The disease was formerly known as Lyme arthritis and first discovered at Old Lyme, Connecticut.
Gram-negative helical bacteria, in the genus BORRELIA, that are the etiologic agents of LYME DISEASE. The group comprises many specific species including Borrelia afzelii, Borellia garinii, and BORRELIA BURGDORFERI proper. These spirochetes are generally transmitted by several species of ixodid ticks.
A watery fluid that is continuously produced in the CHOROID PLEXUS and circulates around the surface of the BRAIN; SPINAL CORD; and in the CEREBRAL VENTRICLES.
A syndrome characterized by the acute onset of unilateral FACIAL PARALYSIS which progresses over a 2-5 day period. Weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscle and resulting incomplete eye closure may be associated with corneal injury. Pain behind the ear often precedes the onset of paralysis. This condition may be associated with HERPESVIRUS 1, HUMAN infection of the facial nerve. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1376)
Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.
A specific species of bacteria, part of the BORRELIA BURGDORFERI GROUP, whose common name is Lyme disease spirochete.
A genus of gram-negative, anaerobic, helical bacteria, various species of which produce RELAPSING FEVER in humans and other animals.
Disease or trauma involving a single peripheral nerve in isolation, or out of proportion to evidence of diffuse peripheral nerve dysfunction. Mononeuropathy multiplex refers to a condition characterized by multiple isolated nerve injuries. Mononeuropathies may result from a wide variety of causes, including ISCHEMIA; traumatic injury; compression; CONNECTIVE TISSUE DISEASES; CUMULATIVE TRAUMA DISORDERS; and other conditions.
A CXC chemokine that is chemotactic for B-LYMPHOCYTES. It has specificity for CXCR5 RECEPTORS.
A transient increase in the number of leukocytes in a body fluid.
A synthetic peptide that is identical to the 24-amino acid segment at the N-terminal of ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE. ACTH (1-24), a segment similar in all species, contains the biological activity that stimulates production of CORTICOSTEROIDS in the ADRENAL CORTEX.
Immunoglobulins produced in a response to BACTERIAL ANTIGENS.
A synthetic tetracycline derivative with similar antimicrobial activity.
A deep type of gyrate erythema that follows a bite by an ixodid tick; it is a stage-1 manifestation of LYME DISEASE. The site of the bite is characterized by a red papule that expands peripherally as a nonscaling, palpable band that clears centrally. This condition is often associated with systemic symptoms such as chills, fever, headache, malaise, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, backache, and stiff neck.
The study of serum, especially of antigen-antibody reactions in vitro.
Benign and malignant neoplastic processes that arise from or secondarily involve the brain, spinal cord, or meninges.

Genetic analysis of Borrelia garinii OspA serotype 4 strains associated with neuroborreliosis: evidence for extensive genetic homogeneity. (1/80)

Infection with Borrelia garinii outer surface protein (Osp) A serotype 4 strains has been correlated with the development of neuroborreliosis in Lyme borreliosis patients in Europe. OspA serotype 4 isolates have been recovered primarily from human cerebrospinal fluid, suggesting a tropism for this environment. Previous studies with monoclonal antibodies directed against OspA and OspC demonstrated that OspA serotype 4 strains are antigenically closely related. In view of the pronounced antigenic and genetic variability that has been noted in the Osps of other Borrelia isolates, we sought to determine if OspA serotype 4 strains represent a recently emerged clonal lineage of B. garinii. Toward this goal, a representative group of OspA serotype 4 strains was analyzed for traits that typically exhibit hypervariability among isolates that cause Lyme borreliosis. The following criteria were assessed: (i) ospC sequences, (ii) plasmid composition, (iii) genomic restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) patterns, and (iv) the RFLP patterns of the upstream homology box (UHB) element which flanks members of the UHB gene family at their 5' end. Collectively, these analyses demonstrate genetic homogeneity, suggesting that OspA serotype 4 strains are a recently emerged clonal lineage with an apparent tropism for the central nervous system.  (+info)

Scored antibody reactivity determined by immunoblotting shows an association between clinical manifestations and presence of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto, B. garinii, B. afzelii, and B. Valaisiana in humans. (2/80)

An immunoglobulin G immunoblot was developed with antigenic extracts of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto, B. garinii, B. afzelii, and B. valaisiana genospecies and was reacted with sera from patients with neuroborreliosis, acrodermatitis, and Lyme arthritis. A detailed analysis of the reactivities of the protein bands was performed, and a two-step scoring procedure was selected to determine the preferential reactivity of sera to one particular genospecies. The discriminative potential of 5 proteins (12-kDa, 16-kDa, 18-kDa, OspA, and 66-kDa proteins) was used as a rapid first-step scoring method, followed by scoring of 14 additional protein bands if necessary. The advantage of this procedure is the low percentage of serum samples with inconclusive results for one of the four species (10% for patients with neuroborreliosis, 6% for patients with acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans, and 6% for patients with Lyme arthritis). Among 31 serum samples from patients with neuroborreliosis, 16 were more reactive to B. garinii, 7 were more reactive to B. afzelii, 3 were more reactive to B. valaisiana, and 2 were more reactive to B. burgdorferi sensu stricto. Of 31 serum samples from patients with acrodermatitis, 26 showed a higher level of reactivity to B. afzelii. Of 34 serum samples from patients with Lyme arthritis, 21 were more reactive to B. burgdorferi sensu stricto, 10 were more reactive to B. afzelii, and 1 was more reactive to B. valaisiana. Our results suggest an organotropism of Borrelia species and provide some evidence of a pathogenic potential of B. valaisiana in humans.  (+info)

Increased IgA rheumatoid factor and V(H)1 associated cross reactive idiotype expression in patients with Lyme arthritis and neuroborreliosis. (3/80)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether autoreactive mechanisms occur in Lyme disease (LD) by determining IgA, IgG and IgM rheumatoid factor (RF) concentrations and RF associated cross reactive idiotype (CRI) expression in the serum of LD patients, with comparison to patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: The RF isotype profiles were determined in 59 patients with LD; erythema migrans (EM) (n=19), neuroborreliosis (NB) (n=20) and Lyme arthritis (LA) (n=20). Mouse monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) G6 and G8 (V(H)1 gene associated), D12 (V(H)3 gene associated) and C7 (V(kappa)III gene associated) were then used to determine the RF associated CRI expression on IgM antibodies in 16 of these LD patients (eight seropositive for RF); (EM (n=3), NB (n=6), LA (n=7)). RESULTS: Seven (18%) patients with either NB or LA had increased concentrations of IgA RF compared with none with EM. Significant differences in the number of patients with raised concentrations of IgG RF or IgM RF were not found between the LD patient groups. Five (3NB, 1LA and 1 EM) (31%) and three (2NB and 1LA) (19%) of LD patients had raised concentrations of the CRIs recognised by mAbs G6 and G8, respectively. These CRIs were detected in LD sera both with and without raised concentrations of RF and were not demonstrated on anti-Borrelia burgdorferi antibodies using ELISA. No LD sera tested had raised concentrations of the determinants recognised by mAbs C7 or D12. CONCLUSION: Significantly raised concentrations of IgA RF and increased use of V(H)1 germline gene associated CRIs are found on IgM antibodies in the serum of LD patients. These data indicate the recruitment of autoreactive B lymphocytes in some patients with the later stages of LD.  (+info)

Epitope mapping of the immunodominant invariable region of Borrelia burgdorferi VlsE in three host species. (4/80)

VlsE, the variable surface antigen of Borrelia burgdorferi, contains a 26-amino-acid-long immunodominant invariable region, IR(6). In the present study, three overlapping 14-mer peptides reproducing the sequence of IR(6) were used as peptide-based enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay antigens to map this invariable region in infected monkeys, mice, and human Lyme disease patients. Antibodies of the two primate species appeared to recognize IR(6) as a single antigenic determinant, while mouse antibodies recognized multiple epitopes within this region.  (+info)

Primarily chronic and cerebrovascular course of Lyme neuroborreliosis: case reports and literature review. (5/80)

As part of an ongoing study aiming to define the clinical spectrum of neuroborreliosis in childhood, we have identified four patients with unusual clinical manifestations. Two patients suffered from a primarily chronic form of neuroborreliosis and displayed only non-specific symptoms. An 11 year old boy presented with long standing symptoms of severe weight loss and chronic headache, while the other patient had pre-existing mental and motor retardation and developed seizures and failure to thrive. Two further children who presented with acute hemiparesis as a result of cerebral ischaemic infarction had a cerebrovascular course of neuroborreliosis. One was a 15 year old girl; the other, a 5 year old boy, is to our knowledge the youngest patient described with this course of illness. Following adequate antibiotic treatment, all patients showed substantial improvement of their respective symptoms. Laboratory and magnetic resonance imaging findings as well as clinical course are discussed and the relevant literature is reviewed.  (+info)

False-negative serology in patients with neuroborreliosis and the value of employing of different borrelial strains in serological assays. (6/80)

The risk of obtaining false-negative results in serological assays in serum and CSF specimens with only one strain of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato as antigen was investigated in 79 patients with neuroborreliosis with specimens obtained at initial presentation. Serum antibodies were assessed by immunoblotting; the criteria of Hauser et al. were used to evaluate the test. The intrathecal synthesis of borrelial-specific IgM and IgG antibodies was examined by enzyme immunoassay (EIA). Strains of B. burgdorferi sensu stricto (BbZ160), B. garinii (Bbii50) and B. afzelii (PKO) served as sources of antigen in both assays. All patients produced either a positive IgM or IgG test in serum with at least one strain of B. burgdorferi sensu lato. Reactivity of IgM or IgG antibodies, or both, with antigens of all three strains was demonstrated in 67 (85%) of 79 sera. The correlation of results of immunoblotting with different strains was significantly better for IgG (85%) than for IgM antibodies (54%). The variability of positive IgM reactions in 18 specimens was mainly due to the fact that the antibodies were directed to the relevant variable outer-surface protein C (p23). Intrathecal synthesis of IgG antibodies was demonstrated in 58 patients (81%) of 72 and of IgM antibodies in 25 of 58 patients. No patient had isolated intrathecal synthesis of IgM antibodies. The majority of CSF samples (56 of 58) were assessed as IgG antibody-positive, independent of the borrelial strain used as antigen in EIA, whereas only 10 of 25 IgM antibody-positive CSF specimens reacted with all three strains. All patients in the study had intrathecal antibody synthesis demonstrable at 6-week follow-up. From this study it is concluded that there is a small, but real, risk of false-negative serological findings at the time of initial clinical presentation in patients with typical symptoms of neuroborreliosis. In these patients a negative serological result with one strain should prompt the repetition of the test with other strains of B. burgdorferi sensu lato.  (+info)

Two subsets of dendritic cells are present in human cerebrospinal fluid. (7/80)

Little is known about the presence of dendritic cells in the human CNS. To investigate the occurrence of dendritic cells in the CSF, paired blood/CSF samples from patients with multiple sclerosis, acute optic neuritis, Lyme neuroborreliosis, other inflammatory neurological diseases and non-inflammatory neurological diseases were examined using flow cytometry. Almost all CSF samples contained myeloid (lin-CD11c+HLA-DR++CD123(dim)) and plasmacytoid (lin-CD11c-HLA-DR+CD123(high)) dendritic cells. In non-inflammatory neurological diseases, dendritic cells of either subset only constituted up to 1% of CSF mononuclear cells. Myeloid CSF dendritic cells were elevated in optic neuritis, neuroborreliosis and other inflammatory neurological disorders, while plasmacytoid dendritic cells were elevated in all neuroinflammatory conditions studied, with especially high numbers in neuroborreliosis. Numbers of CSF dendritic cells correlated with the common parameters of CNS inflammation. The myeloid dendritic cells in CSF expressed higher levels of HLA-DR, CD86, CD80 and CD40 than those in blood, whereas expression of these molecules by plasmacytoid dendritic cells was equal in blood and CSF. Both CSF and blood dendritic cells expressed the chemokine receptor CCR5. This is the first demonstration that dendritic cells are present in human CSF and that plasmacytoid dendritic cells are present in a non-lymphoid compartment. Myeloid and plasmacytoid dendritic cells in CSF may contribute to orchestration of the local immune responses.  (+info)

Lyme borreliosis in rhesus macaques: effects of corticosteroids on spirochetal load and isotype switching of anti-borrelia burgdorferi antibody. (8/80)

Experimental Borrelia burgdorferi infection of rhesus monkeys is an excellent model of Lyme disease and closely parallels the infection in humans. Little is known about the interaction of host immunity with the spirochete in patients with chronic infection. We hypothesized that rapid development of anti-B. burgdorferi antibody in immunocompetent nonhuman primates (NHPs) is the major determinant of the reduction of the spirochetal load in Lyme borreliosis. This hypothesis was tested by measurement of the spirochetal load by PCR in association with characterization of the anti-B. burgdorferi humoral immune response in immunocompetent NHPs versus that in corticosteroid-treated NHPs. Although anti-B. burgdorferi immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody was effectively inhibited in dexamethasone (Dex)-treated NHPs, anti-B. burgdorferi IgM antibody levels continued to rise after the first month and reached levels in excess of IgM levels in immunocompetent NHPs. This vigorous production of anti-B. burgdorferi IgM antibodies was also studied in vitro by measurement of antibody produced by B. burgdorferi-stimulated peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Despite these high IgM antispirochetal antibodies in Dex-treated NHPs, spirochetal loads were much higher in these animals. These data indicate that Dex treatment results in interference with isotype switching in this model and provide evidence that anti-B. burgdorferi IgG antibody is much more effective than IgM antibody in decreasing the spirochetal load in infected animals.  (+info)

OBJECTIVE: To estimate long term survival, health, and educational/social functioning in patients with Lyme neuroborreliosis compared with the general population.. DESIGN: Nationwide population based cohort study using national registers.. SETTING: Denmark.. PARTICIPANTS: All Danish residents diagnosed during 1986-2016 as having Lyme neuroborreliosis (n=2067), defined as a positive Borrelia burgdorferi intrathecal antibody test and a clinical diagnosis of Lyme borreliosis, and a comparison cohort from the general population matched on sex and date of birth (n=20 670).. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Mortality rate ratios, incidence rate ratios of comorbidities, and differences in educational and social outcomes.. RESULTS: Mortality among patients with Lyme neuroborreliosis was not higher than in the general population (mortality rate ratio 0.90, 95% confidence interval 0.79 to 1.03).

Lyme neuroborreliosis (LNB) is one of the manifestations of Lyme disease. Although it is known that immune reaction of LNB patients is dominated by Th1 and Th2 responses and patients have elevated numbers of B cells in their cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), not all the cells involved in inflammation and cytokine secretion have been characterized. The current diagnostics of LNB is based on intrathecal production of antibodies. In recent years, the measurement of chemokine CXCL13 concentration from the CSF has been introduced as a new promising diagnostic tool for LNB to complement the antibody-based diagnostic methods. A few other cytokines have also been analyzed as possible diagnostic markers. However, multiplex analyses simultaneously evaluating the concentrations of a large number of different cytokines in the CSF of LNB patients have been lacking thus far. Extensive cytokine profiling CSF samples of LNB patients would also help in understanding the complex immunopathogenesis of LNB. CSF samples were
Lyme borreliosis is a tick-transmitted spirochetal infection with protean clinical manifestations, [1] including involvement of the nervous system, [2,3] cardiovascular system, skin, [4] and joints [5]. Neurologic involvement, Lyme neuroborreliosis (LNB), is the most feared of the sequelae of the infection but the one that is least understood from the standpoint of pathogenesis, latency, and therapy.. A better understanding of this infection can be gained from the study of animal models. Inoculation of subprimate animals, such as mice and hamsters, has resulted in systemic infection with the spirochete but an absence of consistent infection and inflammation in the CNS. To test whether a model more faithful to human LNB could be elicited in nonhuman primates (NHPs), we injected rhesus macaques with infectious Borrelia burgdorferi and evaluated the course of the infection.. Methods. Animals. Animals used in this study were housed and cared for in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act and the ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Lyme disease in transgenic mice expressing the Borrelia burgdorferi flagellin epitope implicated in human neuroborreliosis. AU - Fikrig, Erol. AU - Barthold, Stephen W. PY - 1997. Y1 - 1997. N2 - Because of an association of human neuroborreliosis with the development of an antibody response against an antigen in neural tissue that cross-reacts with an epitope on the flagellin protein of Borrelia burgdorferi, C3H transgenic mice were created that expressed the flagellin epitope (amino acids 213-224) as a fusion protein with myelin basic protein. The transgenic mice expressed the flagellin epitope selectively in myelinated regions of the nervous system. Both transgenic and non-transgenic mice developed an antibody response to the flagellin epitope during B. burgdorferi infection and both developed arthritis and carditis. However, no lesions were found in the central nervous system of either type of mouse for up to 8 weeks after infection. The data indicate that expression of the ...
The studies revealed that decorin binding proteins of Borrelia act in a flow-tolerant manner mediating adherence into vascular endothelium under the mechanical force caused by the liquid flow. In addition to decorin, decorin binding proteins were shown to bind biglycan, a proteoglycan which is expressed on endothelium more abundantly than decorin. Moreover, dissemination of Borrelia can be imaged in vivo in mice using positron-emission tomography. The studies also showed that CXCL13 is the most specific cytokine biomarker for Lyme neuroborreliosis and the concentration of CXCL13 can reliably be measured of Lyme neuroborreliosis patients cerebrospinal fluid samples with a point-of-care test. Overall, the studies gave new information on the pathogenesis of Lyme borreliosis and helped to improve the disease diagnostics ...

A 59 year old right handed IT professional presented with left shoulder pain, which evolved to whole arm weakness, numbness and pain, before affecting his right arm and then legs to a lesser degree. Over subsequent weeks he developed right facial weakness and circumferential numbness around his torso. Examination revealed a mixed picture of lower motor neurone signs and long tract signs. CSF analysis showed a pleocytosis of 415 white cells, predominantly lymphocytes and elevated protein at 3.49 g/dL. MRI head showed a number of periventricular and brainstem lesions with appearances and locations typical for demyelination. Nerve conduction studies were compatible with a demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy.. Lyme serology showed elevated IgG positive and borderline elevated IgM. His CSF antibody levels were compatible with neuroborreliosis. He was treated with ceftriaxone 4 g daily for 21 days..

Similarily, misdiagnoses can also occur if the CSF (Cerebrospinal fluid) analysis fails to show Borrelia antibodies or inflammation markers. The same applies if the patient has been treated with Cortisone in the past after a tick bite. The lab results are therefore misleading. A case of chronic persistent Borreliosis will not show any signs of inflammation or abnormalities in the CFS after a certain period of time and ,also, not if the spirochetes haven`t been close enough to the ventricular area or the centre of the brain where the cerebrospinal fluid flows. Nevertheless, CFS is, at the moment, still the standard procedure to rule out the possibility of active Lyme Disease ...
I have been suffering from Lyme neuroborreliosis since 1995, and I still have symptoms of the infection. After years of constant, aggressive treatment with a wide variety of orally taken antibiotics, I still tested IgM-positive on a Western Blot and immunofluorescence test. For two strains of Borrelia. I had been camping in the woods without adequate protection, woke up with several ticks embedded in my skin, didnt notice the one on my upper back and digging that one out days later caused a bloody mess with bits and pieces of arthropod coming out. Due to mainly my own stupidity, I did not obtain adequate antibiotic treatment in the country I was in at the time. I got the classic bulls-eye rash. Mild neurological symptoms appeared already weeks after the event but it took years of insiduous, ever-so-gradual worsening before they suddenly exploded into an acutely life-threatening situation and I ended up in the intensive care with a full ECG, an oxygen tube under my nose and an IV drip. I was ...

Results show that anti-inflammatories may prevent many neuropathologic effects of lyme neuroborreliosis, according to study published in the American Journal of Pathology. Philadelphia, PA, April 16, 2015 - About 15% of patients with Lyme disease develop peripheral and central nervous system involvement, often accompanied by debilitating and painful symptoms. New research indicates that inflammation plays a causal role in the array of neurologic changes associated with Lyme disease, according to a study published in The American Journal of Pathology. The investigators at the Tulane National Primate Research Center and Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center also showed that the anti-inflammatory drug dexamethasone prevents many of these reactions.. These results suggest that inflammation has a causal role in the pathogenesis of acute Lyme neuroborreliosis, explained Mario T. Philipp, PhD, Professor of Microbiology and Immunology and chair of the Division of Bacteriology and ...
Neuroborreliosis affects the nervous system after systemic infection with the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi. Previously, cerebral vasculitis has been regarded as an extremely rare complication of neuroborreliosis. The data on the long-term outcome in patients with cerebral vasculitis due to neuroborreliosis are limited. The objective of this study was to perform a longitudinal analysis of cases of neuroborreliosis-associated cerebral vasculitis. We recruited all patients (n = 11) diagnosed with neuroborreliosis-associated in three neurological departments in an East German region. Inclusion criteria were sudden neurological deficits, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging findings that conform to cerebral ischemia or brain infarction, intrathecal synthesis of borrelia-specific antibodies, and non-atherosclerotic pathology of brain supplying arteries. Vasculitic changes were detected by digital subtraction angiography, MR angiography and/or transcranial Doppler ultrasound. Outcomes were measured by ...
I am writing this letter in reference to the recent paper by Danton and Catalano [1]. I have read with interest their investigation based on the anticipation that If the biological agent Borrelia burgdorferi that causes LD (Lyme disease) also causes AD (Alzheimers disease), then areas with the highest levels of LD should have significantly higher numbers of deaths due to AD compared to low LD areas.. To compare AD populations suffering from Lyme neuroborreliosis in endemic and non-endemic areas would be the right approach to obtain an answer to the question raised by the authors.. From 1993 it was emphasized, that Borrelia burgdorferi alone cannot explain all AD cases, as the incidence of Lyme disease, and particularly of Lyme dementia, compared to AD is very low. The authors noticed that various types of spirochetes were suggested to play a role in AD and to consider this point in their investigation would be critical [2,3]. These various spirochetes, including the highly prevalent ...

months and characterized by encephalitis, encephalomyelitis, serebral arteritis, polyneuropathy, mono or oligoarthritis and acrodermatitis chronica [1].. About 30% - 70% patients have constitutional complaints including malaise and fatigue, headache, short lasting migratory arthralgias and myalgias, low grade fever and lymphadenopathy [1-4]. Rheumatological manifestations include musculoskeletal pain and short attacks of frank arthritis [4]. Migrating transitory musculoskeletal pain is common in Lyme disease, 1/5 of patients have short episodes of pain limited to joints with no objective sign related to joints [2-5].. Acute neuroborreliosis is diagnosed only in 10% - 15% of patients, it develops after weeks to months [2,4,5]. Early invasion into central nervous system can occur within 2 weeks however only half of these patients have CNS symptoms during this period [6]. Bacterial content in central nervous sytem is often low, bacterial contituents are released in small quantities over an extended ...
The laboratory diagnosis of Lyme disease is currently dependent on the detection of IgM and IgG antibodies against Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of the disease. The significance of serum IgA against B. burgdorferi remains unclear. The production of intrathecal IgA has been noted in patients with the late Lyme disease manifestation, neuroborreliosis, but production of antigen-specific IgA during early disease has not been evaluated. In the current study, we assessed serum IgA binding to the B. burgdorferi peptide antigens, C6, the target of the FDA-cleared C6 EIA, and FlaB(211-223)-modVlsE(275-291), a peptide containing a Borrelia flagellin epitope linked to a modified VlsE sequence, in patients with early and late Lyme disease ...
New research from the University of Toronto Mississauga definitively puts to rest a theory that Lyme disease causes Alzheimers. While researching his book The Alzheimers Epidemic-Searching for Causes and a Cure (Emeritus Books), U of T Mississauga Professor Emeritus Danton ODay was intrigued to discover studies and popular professional opinion supporting a potential link between Lyme disease and Alzheimers deaths. In 2012, there were 315 reported cases of Lyme disease in Canada, although the Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation estimates the actual number to be in the thousands. Alzheimers disease affects 750,000 Canadians.. Lyme disease is an illness that is spread to humans through the bite of ticks infected with corkscrew-shaped bacteria known as Borrelia burgdorferi. Part of the spirochete family of bacteria, B. burgdorferi can cause neuroborreliosis, which can lead to dementia. Alzheimers disease causes a similar loss of cognitive ability and, eventually, death.. Studies suggested a ...
Adults are more likely to manifest symptoms of neuroberreliosis than are children. These symptoms can include peripheral nerve parasthesias, a Guillain-Barre-like syndrome and Bannwarths syndrome (lymphocytic meningoradiculitis).(2) A study by Hansen et al. showed that patients with neuroborreliosis demonstrate a blood brain barrier disturbance with 62 % showing an elevated albumin ratio and 60 % revealing an increased IgG index, indicative of intrathecal IgG synthesis. In addition, 51 % of patients exhibited oligoclonal IgG bands and these bands were more likely to be present with a longer time since onset of neurologic symptoms. (3) Immune complexes can be recognized by their distinctive staining pattern on zone electrophoresis. B cells in the CNS may give rise to a clonal proliferation of immunoglobulins within the CSF which will appear as a distinct, restricted band in the gamma region of the zone electrophoresis gel. Immune complexes occur when the antibody binds an antigen which results ...
The department of neurology examines and treats patients with diseases or conditions that affect the brain, the spinal cord and peripheral nerves, as well as some muscle diseases. The most common neurological diagnoses that are treated at the department are stroke, TIA, seizures, epilepsy, MS, Parkinsons disease, migraines, meninges bleeding, neuroborreliosis, polyneuropathy, prolapses in the neck and back, dementia of younger people and tumours of the nervous system. There are guard duties to the position ...
Some believe there are 3 stages of Lyme (there are varying names & lengths of time) - Acute Lyme (within first 1-2 months), Acute Disseminated (within first 2-6 months), and Chronic Disseminated (after 6 months). I dont agree with this...in my opinion, there are 2 - Acute (within first 1-2 months) and Chronic (2+ months). Why the distinction between Acute & Chronic Disseminated makes no sense to me. Once the infection has been present long enough to go through multiple generations (Lyme reproduce once every 3-5 weeks), it has moved beyond the initial stage (i.e., moved from bloodstream into the tissues) and found good hiding places. It has begun making biofilm communities, and begun to set up colonies in various tissues. It has begun to hide from the immune system, mimic chemicals (hormones, etc.) in the body to gain access to the brain, and generally adapted itself to the body. This is all my personal opinion, based on much reading and what little I understand about the human body ...

lyme disease- the great imitator- all your symptoms sound like what happens with lyme and if not aggressivly treat with abx will bring on other - especially the muscle/joint etc. There is a lot of info on such. It is not uncommon to show lesions and then more and then none- and lyme can linger and linger if not treated for quite sometime if symptoms arise- my lyme literate doc has told me there are far too many people being treated for MS that actually have lyme, and they will treat for ms, see lesions dissapate and consider you in remission- and then all sorts of other things occur. Search for a lyme literate doctor in your area- dont dismiss it. I had been wrongfully diagnosed with a multitude of things and all kinds of meds EXCEPT antibiotics and now am in stage 3 neuro lyme, with no prognosis of what will be repairable at this point- im sick all the time and have been out of work for a couple of years before my current diagnosis. Im confident this is indeed what is exactly wrong with me, ...

This month, he was tested again for EPM, to see if the treatment made a change in the antibody levels - it did - he was back to negative status again. We dont know if he cleared the possible new infection on his own - persistence of immunity after treatment is still not known - or if the treatment did the trick. At the same time, he was retested for Lyme - its necessary to wait for at least 6 months after completion of treatment for antibody counts to decline. We were delighted to hear that Pie is below the threshold for active infection for all three Lyme antigens. Dawn and Red were not tested for Lyme as they are asymptomatic - and I keep a very close eye on them for any Lyme-related symptoms. I am aware of other horses with Lyme whose treatments have not been as effective - my vet says the level of antibodies and length the horse has had the disease, as well as the treatment protocol, can affect how successful treatment is. ...
