Five populations, including 903 individuals living in 5 different areas close to Stockholm, were studied with regard to clinical manifestations and antibody prevalence of Lyme borreliosis (LB) and tick-borne encephalitis (TBE).
The study areas involved 4 groups of islands in the Baltic Sea and 1 island in Lake Mälaren.
Serum samples from each individual were tested for antibody activity to Borrelia burgdorferi using a sonicated whole spirochete antigen in an ELISA, and to TBE-virus (TBEV) by ELISA and haemagglutination inhibition.
A history of LB was reported by 1-21% and antibodies to Borrelia burgdorferi were found in 7-29% of the participants from the various areas.
