New at ArminLabs: The Borrelia miyamotoi EliSpot

In the past years, more and more Borrelia miyamotoi have been found in ticks (England, Germany, USA, amongst others) and related diseases have been documented at the same time.

  • it is the human pathogen of relapsing fever
  • an erythema migrans does typically not appear
    As of now, the analysis of the cellular activity against Borrelia miyamotoi is performed at ArminLabs by means of the certified EliSpot method.

Symptoms: relapsing fever, chills, headaches, joint and muscle pain, fatigue, nausea/vomiting, sometimes conjunctivitis, and cough at an incubation period of 5-15 days. Typically, the symptoms appear for 2-9 days. They can recur in periods of different lengths or even persist. Contrary to an infection with Borrelia burgdoferi, an erythema migrans does typically not appear.
Atypical symptoms: abdominal pain, diarrhoea, hepatitis, myocarditis, arrhythmia, pulmonary symptoms (like ARDS), disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), facial nerve paralysis, hearing loss, iritis, polyneuropathies or neuropsychiatric symptoms.
