In China, the ability of Ixodes persulcatus, Haemaphysalis concinna and Dermacentor silvarum to transmit Borrelia spirochetes was determined under laboratory conditions. Results showed that all three tick species can acquire spirochetes by feeding on infected mice. However, the capability of the three species to maintain spirochetes was different. Only I. persulcatus is able to maintain spirochetes alive during molting, and subsequent tick stages transmitted the infection to naive mice. In H… 

Interakce Borrelia burgdorferi s. s. a Borrelia afzelii s buněčnými liniemi klíšťat Ixodes ricinus a Ixodes scapularis

The thesis deals with methods used for investigating the interaction of Borrelia with tick cell lines and expresses a high number of immunogenic outer membrane proteins necessary for infection and maintenance within the tick and the host.

Status of Haemaphysalis tick infestation in domestic ruminants in Iran.

The results show that various species of Haemaphysalis ticks infest domestic ruminants in Iran and each tick species show characteristic geographical distributions.

The importance of Ixodes arboricola in transmission of Rickettsia spp., Anaplasma phagocytophilum, and Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato in the Czech Republic, Central Europe.

This study suggests that I. arboricola, P. major, and P. palustris play important roles in circulating rickettsiae in ticks acquired from birds in the Czech Republic and in central Europe.

An annotated checklist of the ticks (Acari: Ixodida) of Germany

A checklist of the species currently known to occur in Germany, summarized under the endemic species, includes general distribution, hosts, and basic ecology, as well as each species' medical and veterinary significance.

Haemaphysalis concinna (Acari: Ixodida): Persistent efficacy of doramectin in rabbits under laboratory conditions

In the present study, the persistent efficacy of doramectin (DOR) in rabbits infested by Haemaphysalis concinna was observed and there was no reduction of nymphs and adults in the untreated rabbits.



Ability to Ixodes scapularis, Dermacentor variabilis, and Amblyomma americanum (Acari: Ixodidae) to acquire, maintain, and transmit Lyme disease spirochetes (Borrelia burgdorferi).

Although I. scapularis was a competent laboratory vector for Borrelia burgdorferi, natural populations of this tick taken from white-tailed deer and white-footed mice in Alabama were not infected with spirochetes.

Susceptibility of Ixodes persulcatus and I. ovatus (Acari: Ixodidae) to Lyme disease spirochetes isolated from humans in Japan.

The data clearly indicate that I. persulcatus is susceptible to the spirochetes that are pathogenic to humans and is the principal vector of Lyme disease to humans in Japan.

Isolation of Borrelia burgdorferi (Spirochaetales: Spirochaetaceae) from Ixodes scapularis and Dermacentor albipictus ticks (Acari: Ixodidae) in Oklahoma.

Borrelia burgdorferi was isolated from ticks from the south-central United States that were infective for laboratory-reared Peromyscus leucopus and Dermacentor albipictus Packard that were removed as partially fed adults from white-tailed deer in Oklahoma.

Vector competence of Ixodes pacificus and Dermacentor occidentalis (Acari: Ixodidae) for various isolates of Lyme disease spirochetes.

The vector competence of the western black-legged tick, Ixodes pacificus Cooley & Kohls, and the Pacific Coast tick, Dermacentor occidentalis Marx, for the Lyme disease spirochete (Borrelia

Tick infection rates with Borrelia Ixodes ricinus versus Haemaphysalis concinna and Dermacentor reticulatus in two locations in eastern Germany

Unfed nymphal Ixodes ricinus, Haemaphysalis concinna, and adult Dermacentor reticulatus were collected in two locations of Saxony in July and September 1991 by flagging and the prevalence of Borrelia (probably B.burgdorferi) in I.ricinus varied from 12.1% to 21.0%.

Vector competence of Ixodes scapularis, I. spinipalpis, and Dermacentor andersoni (Acari:Ixodidae) in transmitting Borrelia burgdorferi, the etiologic agent of Lyme disease.

The vector competence of 3 ixodid tick species, Ixodes scapularis, I. spinipalpis, and D. andersoni, for Borrelia burgdorferi in Colorado were shown to be competent vectors that acquired the infection from the host reservoir mice and subsequently transmitted it to naive mice.

Glass Capillary Tube Feeding: A Method for Infecting Nymphal Ixodes scapularis (Acari: Ixodidae) with The Lyme Disease Spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi

The capillary infection method is convenient and is a better alternative to syringe inoculation as a means of infecting animals with B. burgdorferi.

Clinical and laboratory evidence of the importance of the tick D. marginatus as a vector of B. burgdorferi in some areas of sporadic Lyme disease in Bulgaria

The result of the study demonstrates that in single cases in some ecosystems, ticks D. marginatus might be implicated in Bb transmission to humans as secondary vectors.

Ability of the Lyme disease spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi to infect rodents and three species of human-biting ticks (blacklegged tick, American dog tick, lone star tick) (Acari:Ixodidae).

I. scapularis was the only species that proved to be vector competent for B. burgdorferi strains inoculated into mice and efficiently maintained these spirochetes transstadially and transmitted infection as nymphs.

Natural foci of Lyme disease in potenial vector ticks and reservoir rodents in the Donglingshan Mountain area of Beijing

Results indicate that Ixodes persulcatus is the principal vector tick transmitting B. burgdorferi, while Apodemus agrarius and A. peninsulae may be the chief reservoirs of this disease.
