Analysis of the concentration of selected serological parameters in patients undergoing antibiotic treatment of Lyme disease and assessment of their potential application in the control of the therapy effectiveness - pilot study

CONCLUSIONS: The presence of high concentrations of anti-C6VlsE IgG is associated with appearance of response to Borreliella spp. infection, which suggests that the parameter can be used in the diagnosis of the active form of borreliosis. However, from a practical point of view, a marker of successful elimination of infection should indicate the effectiveness or failure of antibiotic therapy within a relatively short post-treatment period. The anti-C6VlsE IgG antibodies do not seem to satisfy this provision.PMID:34969217 | DOI:10.26444/aaem/132786
