Tick-borne infections and co-infections in patients with non-specific symptoms in Poland
Conclusions Non-specific symptoms after tick bite may be caused by uncommon pathogens or co-infection, therefore it should be considered in differential diagnosis after tick bite.
In this study, we found only minor ethnic differences in persistent pain. Similar living conditions and cultural features may explain these findings. PMID: 32780007 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Zhou W, Zhou Y, Wang M, Qian C, Wang C, Tang J, Cai Z, Dai W, Zhu X Abstract Peripheral nerve injury (PNI)-induced neuropathic pain is a prevalent and severe clinical problem. It has been shown that microglia-mediated neuroinflammation plays a crucial role in neuropathic pain. The present study investigated the abnormal expression of C-X-C motif chemokine receptor type 2 (CXCR2) in a rat L5 spinal nerve ligation (SNL) model and evaluated the role of SB225002, a specific antagonist of CXCR2, in repressing neuroinflammation and neuropathic pain. It was found that CXCR2 expression was significantly upregulate...
