  1. Longitudinal study of Borrelia burgdorferi infection in New Jersey outdoor workers, 1988-1991.

    Article - En anglais

    From 1988 to 1991, annual questionnaires and serosurveys were performed in a cohort of outdoor workers in New Jersey at high risk for Lyme disease to 1) evaluate temporal trends in seroprevalence and seroconversion of antibody to Borrelia burgdorferi; 2) identify risk factors for B. burgdorferi seroconversion during these years; and 3) examine associations between such seroconversion in 1989-1990 and anti-tick saliva antibody (ATSA, a biologic marker of tick exposure) seropositivity in 1990.

    A total of 1,519 workers participated in at least 1 year of the study.

    Lyme disease seroprevalence and seroconversion increased from 1988 to 1990 and then decreased in 1991.

    Years at residence, rural residence, and a history of medical problems were observed to be risk factors for seroconversion from 1988 to 1991.
