Isolation and transmission of the Lyme disease spirochete from the southeastern United States.
Transmission experiments indicate that the three Georgia isolates can infect experimentally inoculated hamsters and mice and Tick transmission of one of the isolates has been attempted so far; I. scapularis transmitted isolate SI-1 from hamsters to mice, but the lone-star tick, Amblyomma americanum, did not.
Immature Ixodes scapularis (Acari: Ixodidae) parasitizing lizards from the southeastern U.S.A.
Preserved museum specimens of 13 lizard and 3 snake species common in the southeastern U.S.A. were examined for immature Ixodes scapularis ticks and found Larvae and nymphs on species of Eumeces and Ophisaurus were found almost exclusively in the lateral groove area.
Acute hypersensitivity reaction to Intralipid.
Susceptibility of Eumeces Species Skinks to a Southeastern Isolate of the Lyme Disease Spirochete ( Borrelia burgdorferi )
The SI-4 strain of Borrelia burgdorferi obtained from field collected Ixodes scapularis on Sapelo Island, Georgia, was infective to seven of eight cotton mice (Peromyscus gossypinus) by needle inoculation, and attempts to determine presence of the spirochete in skinks using PGR assay of their organs were inconclusive.
