  1. 1. Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis - a new agent of tick-borne infectious disease

    Author : Anna Grankvist; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Tick-borne; Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis; infectious disease; human; neoehrlichiosis;

    Abstract : “Candidatus Neoehrlichia mikurensis” (Ca. N. mikurensis) is a tick-borne bacterial pathogen that can cause disease particularly among immune compromised persons. This new infectious disease is called neoehrlichiosis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Neoehrlichia mikurensis in Sweden : An emerging tick-borne human pathogen

    Author : Lisa Labbé Sandelin; Björn Olsen; Jonas Waldenström; Per-Eric Lindgren; Ivar Tjernberg; Lars Hagberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neoehrlichia; Tick-borne Infections; Transfusion-transmitted infections; Bacterial Zoonotic infections; Blood Donors; Immunosuppression; Infectious Diseases; Emerging; Blood Safety; Bird Migration; Infektionssjukdomar; Infectious Diseases;

    Abstract : Neoehrlichia mikurensis is an emerging tick-borne human pathogen, causing neoehrlichiosis in immunosuppressed and immunocompetent individuals. It targets the vascular endothelium, leading to thromboembolic and vascular events, but can also pass without symptoms. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ticks and Tick-borne Encephalitis Virus : From Nature to Infection

    Author : Naveed Asghar; Magnus Johansson; Patrik Dinnétz; Travis Taylor; Södertörns högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Co-occurrence; Environmental factors; Flavivirus; Ixodes ricinus; Natural foci; Non-coding region; Poly A tract; Quasispecies; Questing ticks; Scandinavia; Tick-borne encephalitis virus; Vegetation.; Environmental Studies; Miljövetenskapliga studier;

    Abstract : Vector-borne diseases are an increasing global threat to humans due to climate changes, elevating the risk of infections transmitted by mosquitos, ticks, and other arthropod vectors. Ixodes ricinus, a common tick in Europe, transmits dangerous tick-borne pathogens to humans. READ MORE

  4. 4. Tick-borne encephalitis - clinical and virological aspects

    Author : Malin Veje; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Tick-borne encephalitis; TBE; zoonosis; sequelae; fatigue; polysomnography; sleep; functional outcome; serology; PCR; complement activation; classical pathway;

    Abstract : Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE), an important central nervous system infection in Europe and Asia, is caused by the TBE virus (TBEV), which is mainly transmitted to humans through tick bites. This thesis studied data from 201 of the 373 patients diagnosed in Region Västra Götaland between 1997 and 2017. READ MORE

  5. 5. Tick-borne encephalitis : clinical and pathogenetic aspects

    Author : Auksė Mickienė; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : tick-borne encephalitis;

    Abstract : The aims of this study were to investigate the morbidity associated with tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) in the acute stage and at long-term follow-up, to identify the possible host risk factors for development of clinical TBE with special reference to the role of the genetic polymorphism, and to investigate neurochemical changes in the brain induced by TBE virus (TBEV) and their possible role on severity of TBE with special reference to endogenous kynurenic acid (KYNA). Paper I: Of 250 consecutively admitted patients with central nervous system (CNS) infections treated during a 1-year period, all 133 patients with TBE participated in the prospective follow-up study.
