Abstract

The primary aim of this study was to establish the seroprevalence of Borrelia burgdorferi in dogs in Los Angeles County by testing shelter and client owned dogs with 2-tier ELISA testing. A secondary goal was to create a pilot study for evaluation of all Borrelia positive dogs for dermatologic...

Abstract

Background: In North America, Borrelia burgdorferi is the causative bacterial agent of canine Lyme borreliosis and is transmitted following prolonged attachment and feeding of vector ticks, Ixodes scapularis or Ixodes pacificus. Its prevention is predicated upon tick-avoidance, effective on-animal...

Abstract

Lyme disease in dogs can be effectively prevented by vaccination against antigens expressed by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi during transmission by the tick vector Ixodes sp. Lyme vaccine efficacy has traditionally been based on indicators of infection following wild-caught tick challenge...

Abstract

Tick-borne relapsing fever (TBRF) is caused by several Borrelia spp. (including Borrelia turicatae), which are primarily transmitted by Ornithodoros ticks. Relapsing fever group species are found worldwide, except for Antarctica. Approximately 500 human cases were reported between 1990 and 2011 in...

Abstract

We characterized the antibody response to decorin-binding protein A (DbpA) or DbpB from immune serum samples collected from 27 dogs infected with Borrelia burgdorferi by Ixodes scapularis ticks. Immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies to DbpA or DbpB were rarely detected, but high levels of IgG...

AbstractFull Text

Lyme disease is a vector-borne disease caused by spirochetes from Borrelia burgdorferi complex transmitted by ticks. In Europe, the most common genospecies isolated from animals and humans are: Borrelia afzelii, Borrelia garinii and Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto. Pathogens are transmitted by...

Abstract

In eastern North America, the blacklegged tick, Ixodes scapularis, is the vector for Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto and Anaplasma phagocytophilum, the causal agents for human and canine Lyme disease and anaplasmosis, respectively. The extensive range expansion of I. scapularis in Ontario is a...

Abstract

In North America, the tick-borne pathogens Borreliella burgdorferi (Lyme disease; LD) and Anaplasma phagocytophilum (anaplasmosis) are a significant health threat to dogs. Little is known regarding the seroprevalence of maternal antibodies (Abs) to these pathogens in young dogs. The analysis of...

Abstract

Background: Borrelia burgdorferi and Anaplasma phagocytophilum are tick-borne infections transmitted by Ixodes scapularis in the eastern USA; both agents cause disease in dogs and people. To characterize changes in seroprevalence over time, Cochran Armitage trend tests were used to evaluate percent ...
