#Lyme Clinical Presentation: nonspecific, viral-like symptoms that persist, & new ones appear. Then symptoms more focused on musculoskeletal, peripheral and central nervous systems, heart and skin. Muti-systemic & migratory. #ILADS2022 Image

3/Burrascano: Types of tests
SEROLOGIES are indirect, B-cell based tests:
B-cells create antibodies and serologies measure these antibodies #ILADS2022

Joseph Burrascano, Jr. MD: Ticks are "Nature’s Dirty Needle." In addition to #Lyme, ticks may be infected with #Babesia #Bartonella #Ehrlichia #Anaplasma #Chlamydia #Mycoplasma #WestNileVirus #Nematodes #candida and viruses. #ILADS2022
2/Burrascano: B. microti and B. duncani (also known as WA-1) are the predominant cause of Babesiosis in the United States #Babesiosis has been detected in all 50 states #ILADS2022
3/Burrascano: #Babesia odocoilei has been found in ticks across N America, but not human samples, perhaps due to defective primers. Immunoblot data shows significant % of Babesia species in human patients are not microti or duncani. Could be divergens and/or odocoilei? #ILADS2022

So we begin #ParasitesOnline21 today with C.A. Wright Medal 2020 winner, Prof Sarah Reece (@ReeceLab), who is telling us about "The private life of #malaria parasites: Strategies for survival & reproduction." #Parasitology Image
Prof Reece describes how the #malaria parasite regulates gametocyte sex ratio; highest number of offspring depends in female gametocyte number; the highest proportion of matings depends on male gametocyte number: sciencedirect.com/science/articl… #ParasitesOnline21
For optimal #malaria gametocyte ratio, there needs to be plasticity in the gametocyte conversion rate. The @ReeceLab has investigated environmental factors that may influence this rate, such as in ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P… #ParasitesOnline21
