  1. Transmission risk of lyme disease and implications for tick management.

    Article - En anglais

    Transmission risk of Lyme disease at a site can be estimated using the probability of exposure (P1=probability of being bitten by at least one infected tick); P1=1-(1-kt)n, where n=number of tick bites per person and kt=spirochete prevalence in questing ticks.

    This probability is more directly related to the likelihood of acquiring Lyme disease than the standard measure of transmission risk (the number of infected ticks per sample) and allows for direct consideration of the level of tick/human contact (by varying n) in assessing exposure risk and designing management strategies.
