PATHOGENS

  • Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato, agent of Lyme disease (LD) in North America.
  • Other strains may cause LD in regions outside the U.S., e.g. B. garinii, B. afzelii in Europe.
    • These species may not trigger positive U.S. 2-tier Lyme serologic assays, but are better detected by Lyme C6 (Vlse) antibody testing.
