Tick-Borne Diseases of Norway

Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is one of eight zoonoses carried by ticks in Norway (the others are Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, Louping ill, Lyme borreliosis, Relapsing fever, Rickettsial spotted fever and Tularemia).  As displayed in the following graphs, rates of human TBE are considerably lower than those of other tick-borne diseases in Norway, and below TBE rates reported by neighboring countries.

This report describes a new lethal case of Rickettsia rickettsii infection in a child from Northwestern Colombia, after ten years of the last outbreaks in the same region. Colombian public-health authorities should consider to include this severe rickettsiosis in the compulsory-reporting diseases, with the aim of knowing its burden in the country.

LYME disease is a relatively unknown condition with an estimated 2,000 to 3,000 new cases each year in England and Wales. For an unknown disease however, anyone can develop the condition as its caught by a tick. This major symptom could mean you might have Lyme disease. Do you have it?

Abstract Background and purpose: The incidence and prevalence of autoimmune encephalitis is gradually increasing. This retrospective observational study primarily aimed to analyze the clinical characteristics of autoimmune encephalitis patients in the Second Xiangya Hospital and report patient prognoses after immunotherapy. Methods: The clinical data of 86 patients who were diagnosed with autoimmune encephalitis from October 2014 to September 2018 were collected, and their corresponding clinical characteristics, laboratory examination, treatment, and outcome data analyzed. Results: In our study, 72 patients (83.7%) wer...

This study was conducted to assess genetic diversity of Tp1 and Tp2 genes from T. parva isolates that are recognized by CD8 + T-cells in cattle and buffalo. The Tp1 and Tp2 genes are currently under evaluation as candidates for inclusion in a subunit vaccine. A total of 130 blood samples collected from cattle which do not interact with buffalo (98), cattle co-grazing with buffalo (19) and buffalo (13) in Mara, Mbeya, Morogoro, Tanga, and Coast regions in Tanzania were used in this study. Genomic DNA was extracted from the blood samples, Tp1 and Tp2 genes were amplified using nested PCR and the PCR products we...
