The sensitivities and specificities of three enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) for Borrelia burgdorferi antibodies were compared for 41 patients presenting with symptoms compatible with late Lyme borreliosis (LB) and 37 healthy controls. All subjects were living in southwestern Finland, where LB is endemic. Only patients with culture- or PCR-proven disease were enrolled in the study. The antigens of the ELISAs consisted of sonicated spirochetes, 41-kDa flagellin, and recombinant P39… CONTINUE READING
