    Despite the absence of enzymes that digest extracellular matrix, Borrelia burgdorferi spreads in the skin to form erythema migrans (EM) lesions and then disseminates to other organs. We studied the induction by bacteria of host matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) in EM skin lesions of patients with...

    Introduction: Acute transverse myelitis (ATM) is a rare disorder (1-8 new cases per million of population per year), with 20% of all cases occurring in patients younger than 18 years of age. Diagnosis requires clinical symptoms and evidence of inflammation within the spinal cord (cerebrospinal...

    The diagnosis of Lyme neuroborreliosis (LNB) requires the detection of intrathecal synthesis of Borrelia-specific antibodies, but in very early disease, the sensitivity may be low. We compared the performance of the second-generation IDEIA Lyme Neuroborreliosis test (Oxoid), based on purified...
