  1. Fulltext. Antibodies to Borrelia burgdorferi and tick salivary gland proteins in New Jersey outdoor workers.

    Article - En anglais


    In 1990, a second cross-sectional study of outdoor workers (n=758) at high risk for Lyme disease was conducted.

    A questionnaire was administered, and antibodies to Borrelia burgdorferi and tick salivary gland proteins (antitick saliva antibody, a biologic marker of tick exposure) were assayed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.

    The statewide Lyme disease seroprevalence increased from 8.1% in 1988 to 18.7% in 1990.

    Antitick saliva antibody seropositivity varied by county and was associed with measures of self-reported tick exposure.
