Since when did you learn to read Chinese? You didn't? Then why are you peeking in here?

[lol]

This article, about a place I've never heard of in China, indicates there is a Lyme infection rate there in ticks of about 35%. Almost 20% of ticks were coinfected.

Makes me concerned that we've been misdiagnosing so many people not just here, but world wide too. So sad. I wonder if they have support groups and good doctors there? Wonder too if since they have a CDC, are their treatment protocols any different?

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To study the co-infection of tick-borne pathogens in Ixodes persulcatus collected in Charles Hilary, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region (Xinjiang).

METHODS:

Ticks were collected by flagging in grassy areas in Charles Hilary, Xinjiang from June 2012 to June 2013.

The 5S-23S rRNA intergenic region from Borrelia (B.) burgdorferi, 16S rRNA gene from Anaplasma, ompA gene from spotted fever group Rickettsia, com1 gene from Coxiella (C.) burneti and Nss-rRNA gene from Babesia were amplified with nested polymerase chain reaction (nested PCR) , respectively.

RESULTS:

Among 204 Ixodes persulcatus, 104 were positive for tick-borne pathogens with the positive rate of 50.98%, and among them the positive rates of B. burgdorferi, spotted fever group Rickettsia and Anaplasma phagocytophilum were 34.31% (n=70) , 28.92% (n=59) , 9.31% (n=19) , respectively.

And no C. burnetii and Babesia were detected. The overall co-infection rate was 19.12% (39/204) , the co-infection rate was 16.18% (33/204) for B. garinii and spotted fever group Rickettsia, 4.90% (10/204) for B. burgdorferi and Anaplasma phagocytophilum,

2.94% (6/204) for spotted fever group Rickettsia and Anaplasma phagocytophilum and 2.45% (5/204) for B. burgdorferi, Anaplasma phagocytophilum and spotted fever group Rickettsia.

CONCLUSION:

The results indicated that the natural co-infections of B. garinii, B. afzelii, Anaplasma phagocytophilum and spotted fever group Rickettsia existed in Charles Hilary Ixodes persulcatus collected in Xinjiang.

It's something else, reading all this. I bet they're treating with herbs.

In China you can buy a lot of antibiotics at the pharmacy without a prescription.
