Large-scale countrywide screening for tick-borne pathogens in field-collected ticks in Latvia during 2017 –2019

Tick-borne diseases are of substantial concern worldwide in both humans and animals. Several hard tick species are of medical and veterinary interest in Europe, and changes in the range of tick species can aff...

In this study, we found that tick bites cause the host hair loss and regeneration disorders. For resisting tick bite, the host activates the immune response and initiates vascular repair and wound-healing systems. In addition, some phosphorylated proteins promote host immunity and vascular repair. These results can help us further understand the defence mechanism of the host against tick bites, provide a basis for the development of an anti-tick vaccine, the development of anti-tick drugs, and the diagnosis of tick-borne diseases.

Abstract Ticks are the most important vectors of human pathogens, leading to increased public health burdens worldwide. Tick-borne pathogens include viruses (e.g. tick-borne encephalitis and Powassan); bacteria, such as the causative agents of Lyme disease, spotted fever rickettsiosis and human anaplasmosis; and malaria-like protozoan parasites causing babesiosis. Tick-borne diseases are emerging due to the geographical expansion of their tick vectors, especially in the northern hemisphere. Two examples of this phenomenon are Ixodes scapularis and Amblyomma americanum, which have expanded their ranges in the USA i...
