  title={Jarisch Herxheimer Reaktion},
  author={Jarisch Herxheimer},
Die Herxheimer-Reaktion (Jarisch-Herxheimer-Reaktion, Herx) ist eine Reaktion des Körpers auf Bakteriengifte (Endotoxine), die durch den Zerfall von Krankheits-Erregern entsteht und zur Freisetzung von Entzündungsbotenstoffen führt. Die Reaktion kann mehrere Tage andauern. Studio of the mechanism of the Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction in louse-borne relapsing fever evidence for the presence of circulating Borrelia endotoxin.

Non-viable Borrelia burgdorferi induce inflammatory mediators and apoptosis in human oligodendrocytes
Results suggest that spirochetal residues left after bacterial demise, due to treatment or otherwise, may continue to be pathogenic to the central nervous system. Expand
High-resolution computed tomography findings in a case of severe leptospira infection (Weil disease) complicated with Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction.
The possibility of leptospirosis being the cause of Weil disease should be included in the differential diagnosis, especially when high-resolution CT findings indicate PAH, and the imaging findings deteriorate rapidly after antibiotic therapy. Expand
Comparison of cefuroxime axetil and doxycycline in treatment of patients with early Lyme disease associated with erythema migrans
Cefuroxime axetil is well tolerated and appears to be equally as effective as doxycycline in the treatment of early Lyme disease and in preventing the subsequent development of late Lyme disease. Expand
