Department of Occupational Biohazards, Institute of Agricultural Medicine, Jaczewskiego 2, 20-090 Lublin, Poland.

A total of 769 adult neurological patients hospitalised in clinics and hospitals situated in the Lublin region (eastern Poland) were examined during the years 1997-2000 with ELISA test for the presence of anti-Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato antibodies.

A statististically significant (p=0.0422) relationship was found between the clinically confirmed diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and the positive serologic reaction with Borrelia antigen.

Ten out 26 patients with multiple sclerosis (38.5%) showed positive serologic reaction to Borrelia, whereas among the total number of examined neurological patients the frequency of positive findings was twice as low (19.4%).

The result suggests that multiple sclerosis may be often associated with Borrelia infection

Thanks, this is important research!

I do not know how to look up documents on Pubmed; could you provide a date for this abstract, and publication? Thanks.

Consider that ELISA test is sometimes believed to be efficient around 30% [Smile]

If thet have tested them with Western Blot and PCR, results would be higher.

Wow! Great article...Thanks for sharing it...and I second the thought that the results would have been even MORE robust had they run WBs

Thanks.

It's good to know someone is paying attention - maybe other countries will wake up soon.

Wrotek,

I had the very same thought when I first read this.

The EIA is not a very good indicator, so the percentage I am sure would be much higher.

I think neuro's need to read this one, before they label ppl with MS. They kept coming back to MS with me and I wish I had, had this to show the neurologist.

It's study's like this that will continue to advance Lyme Disease and it's awareness.
