AIM To create and test the complex of polymerase chain reaction-based methods for detection of pathogens vectored by ticks in clinical and environmental samples. MATERIALS AND METHODS Real time PCR methods with hybridization-fluorescent detection were developed for detection of tick-borne encephalitis virus, Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, Anaplasma(More)
Four foreign and one Russian 1st generation test-systems for detecting class G antibodies or summary antibodies to Borrelia burkdorferi sensu lato were comparitively investigated with the use of the clinical material under conditions of an encoded experiment. Cross reactions with sera from patients with syphilis, Epstein-Barr infection, cytomegalovirus(More)
One foreign and two Russian recombinant enzyme immunoassay test-systems were comparatively investigated under conditions of an encoded experiment. Sensitivity in the experiment with the Russian test-systems Borreliosis-ELISA-IgG and Lyme Best was 63.8 and 68.8% respectively. As for the test-system Borrelia IgG Recombinant, it was 47.5%. All the test-systems(More)
It is demonstrated that in the regions, where Ixodes persulcatus and I. ricinus are sympatric, the incidence and prevalence of Borrelia burgdorferi among the latter tick species is higher. In areas, where the Ixodes persulcatus population infected with Borrelia were met, the percent of infected I. ricinus was 3-4 times more and the number of detection of(More)
