Lyme borreliosis, the most common vector-bome disease in the northern hemisphere, is caused by bacteria belonging to the Borrelia burgdorferi complex. The disease is multisystemic, affecting mainly the skin, nervous system, heart and joints. In Europe, the vector of the disease is the tick Ixodes ricinus, whereas in the United States of America, two primary tick vectors exist,...

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2012.

Borrelia afzelii, B. garinii, and B. burgdorferi are three of the five Borrelia species definitely recognized as responsible for Lyme borreliosis in Europe. This infectious disease is transmitted by ticks and is characterized by multistage skin, joint, neurological and cardiac manifestations. The aim of the present study is to reveal new species specific proteins of B....

In Europe, Borrelia burgdorferi is transmitted by Ixodes ricinus to animals and human. When infected and uninfected ticks co-feed on a host, spirochetes are transmitted from ticks to animal and also to uninfected ticks. Here, we used uninfected ticks to co-feed with infected ticks on mice to evaluate this method to detect early infection in mice. A total of 128 mice were challenged...
