First Isolation of Borrelia lusitaniae from a Human Patient
This isolate, from a chronic skin lesion, is also the first human isolate of Borrelia in Portugal and different phenotypic and molecular methods are used to characterize it.
Aspects of Lyme Borreliosis in Europe

Historical, ecological, epidemiological, clinical, and therapeutic aspects associated with Lyme borreliosis in Europe, which has been accumulated for more than 100 years are presented.
Lyme Arthritis: Current Concepts and a Change in Paradigm
Lyme disease is the most common arthropod-borne infection in the United States, affecting approximately 23,000 individuals bitten by Borrelia burgdorferi -infected Ixodes ticks in 2005 ([30][1]).
Borrelia burgdorferi sp. nov.: Etiologic Agent of Lyme Disease
A review of reports on the genetic and phenotypic characteristics of strains of the spirochete which causes Lyme disease revealed that these organisms are representative of a new species of Borrelia.
Distinct Combinations of Borrelia burgdorferiSensu Lato Genospecies Found in Individual Questing Ticks from Europe
Analysis of mixed infections in the ticks showed that B.garinii and B. valaisianasegregate from B. afzelii interacts with spirochetes in the tick, thereby playing an important role in the ecology of Lyme borreliosis.
Disarming Lyme disease.
Next on the research agenda: how to help people suffering from chronic symptoms, which is usually curative and in clinical trials.
Detection and Typing of Borrelia burgdorferi Sensu Lato in Ixodes ricinus Ticks Attached to Human Skin by PCR
Borrelia species were identified by 16S rRNA sequence analysis, which showed the presence of several species, some not yet defined, and a high prevalence of multiply infected ticks.
Absence of lipopolysaccharide in the Lyme disease spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi
It is shown that the presence of the classic enterobacterium-type lipopolysaccharide in the cells of the Lyme disease spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi B31, is unable to be demonstrated, but this results do not preclude the possible existence of an unusual lipopoly Saccharide-like compound(s) in B. burgdorFERi.
Lyme disease: A tick-borne spirochetosis
A treponema-like spirochete was detected in and isolated from adult Ixodes dammini, the incriminated tick vector of Lyme disease, and it is suggested that the newly discovered spiroChete is involved in the etiology of Lyme Disease.
