@VerlorengezondheidM,
Is er bekend of de 'Phelix Phage Borrelia test' onderscheid kan maken tussen de Amerikaanse en de Europese varianten van
B. miyamotoi/Relapsing Fever? Ilads Lyme artsen als R.H testen niet met de test maar met de testen van andere verschillende laboratoria onder andere bij Igenex.

Heeft 60%-70% van de Nederlandse patiënten en of van de leden van de Lymevereniging B. miyamotoi/Relapsing Fever?
Als dit juist is waarom blijven de Lymevereniging en de samenwerkende partner Team Phelix Research & Development; Bron http://phelix.info/en/about/team/ er zo stil over?

Persoonlijk hoor ik weinig Nederlandse patiënten die een positieve uitslag B. miyamotoi/Relapsing Fever met de 'Phelix Phage Borrelia test' hebben gekregen de specifieke klachten van B. miyamotoi/Relapsing Fever noemen. Speurtocht naar broertje van lymebacterie; Bron https://www.rd.nl/meer-rd/gezondheid/sp ... -1.1372383
De ziekteverschijnselen die B. miyamotoi veroorzaakt, zijn vrij algemeen: koortspieken met hoge temperaturen, moeheid, spier- en gewrichtspijn, hoofdpijn en, misselijkheid. „Hoe erg mensen er ziek van worden, weten we eigenlijk nog niet goed. Onze kennis is vooral gebaseerd op de ergste gevallen, de mensen die onder behandeling komen. Onduidelijk is of mensen die niet naar een arts stappen ook deze klachten met koortspieken krijgen. De symptomen kunnen makkelijk worden versleten voor een griepje, want ze zijn weinig specifiek. Sommige patiënten hebben milde schade aan de lever en een afgenomen aantal bloedplaatjes. Die zijn betrokken bij de bloedstolling. Wat de gevolgen van de infectie op lange termijn zijn, weten we niet”, zegt Wagemakers.

Iemand die een infectie heeft met de bacterie B. myamotoi heeft dus geen lyme, stelt Wagemaker. „Je kunt wel zeggen dat hij een borreliose heeft. Lyme wordt veroorzaakt door B. burgdorferi en geeft andere ziekteverschijnselen.”
Zo’n 2,5 tot 4 procent van de Nederlandse teken is besmet met de bacterie. Het percentage wisselt een beetje per onderzoek. „Wij hebben zelf ruim 3000 teken afkomstig van 11 verschillende locaties in Nederland onderzocht en kwamen uit op 2,5 procent. Zo’n 10 procent was drager van B. burgdorferi, de verwekker van de ziekte van Lyme. Dat is aan de lage kant, andere studies komen uit rond de 20 procent.”

Het kan ook zijn dat een teek beide bacteriën bij zich draagt. „In ons onderzoek kwam B. miyamotoi in 4,3 procent van de gevallen voor in teken die ook B. burgdorferi bij zich droegen. Dat was slechts 2,3 procent in teken zonder B. burgdorferi. Dus de teken met een combinatie van beide ziekteverwekkers lijken vaker voor te komen dan met alléén B. miyamotoi.”

She Tested Negative for Lyme Disease. So What Was Wrong?


Lisa Sanders, M.D.

Only one result was positive — the test for a distant cousin of Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacterium that causes Lyme. It’s called Borrelia miyamotoi, and it causes one of the newest tick-borne diseases. The first cases, in Russia, were reported in 2011. Cases were reported in the U.S. two years later. B. miyamotoi, like Lyme, is carried by the black-legged deer tick, but it’s a much easier infection to get. With Lyme, the tick has to be attached to a body for two to three days before the bug can be transmitted. That’s because B. burgdorferi lives deep in the tick’s gut. But B. miyamotoi lives in the tick’s mouth and can invade the body almost immediately.

2 New York State Psychiatric Institute, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, New York, NY, United States

Kort onderzoeksrapport artikel (case study)
Methods
This study included 82 patients consecutively screened for B. miyamotoi and B. burgdorferi antibodies as part of a clinical workup for tick-borne illness at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center from June 2017 to October 2018. Chart review was approved by the New York State Psychiatric Institute IRB. Clinic patients were seeking a second opinion to determine whether their persistent polymorphic symptoms were attributable to tick-borne infection. Patients frequently endorsed chronic symptoms of fatigue, pain, neurocognitive, and psychiatric problems.

Evaluations consisted of comprehensive physician assessments, serologic testing, and questionnaires. The GLP-Q assay was an indirect EIA for detection of antibody to B. miyamotoi, performed at Imugen, Inc. in Norwood, MA. As previously reported, they use the GlpQ gene sequence from B. miyamotoi (GenBank accession number AY368276) as the basis for cloning and expression as a 38-kDa recombinant protein (rGlpQ) (6). B. burgdorferi antibodies were assessed using the C6 peptide ELISA and IgM and IgG western immunoblot. Patients were designated B. miyamotoi positive based on IgG or IgM GlpQ seroreactivity (defined as >1 to the value calculated for the highest result on the standard curve). Patients were designated Lyme-positive if they met 2017 CDC surveillance criteria for definite or probable Lyme disease, having an EM skin lesion or multisystem clinical symptoms with at least 5 positive IgG bands on the Western blot.

Patients rated their symptoms using the General Symptom Questionnaire-30 (GSQ-30), a measure specifically developed to assess multisystem symptom burden in patients with early Lyme disease and post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome (12). Patients also completed the Beck Depression Inventory-II, Cognitive Failures Questionnaire, Fatigue Severity Scale, Epworth Sleepiness Scale, McGill VAS Pain Scale, and Zung Anxiety Scale. Mann-Whitney U tests were conducted to compare B. miyamotoi-positive and B. burgdorferi-positive patients on these measures.

Results
Of the 82 patients, 21 (26%) tested positive for B. miyamotoi by anti-GlpQ ELISA; all were IgG positive and IgM negative. Of these 21 patients, five also met CDC surveillance criteria for definite or probable Lyme disease. Of the 61 patients who tested negative for B. miyamotoi, 22 met criteria for definite or probable Lyme disease. The remaining 39 patients tested negative for both B. miyamotoi and B. burgdorferi antibodies.

The B. miyamotoi-positive group reported significantly more sleepiness on the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (Md = 9 vs. 4, U = 42.00, z = −2.51, p = 0.01) and significantly more pain on the VAS (Md = 5.80 vs. 2.70, U = 58.00, z = −2.02, p = 0.04) than the group with probable or definite Lyme disease. On the total score and individual item level, there were no significant between-groups differences on the GSQ-30, but the B. miyamotoi-positive group did endorse being bothered more by headaches than the B. burgdorferi-positive group (Md = 3 vs. 2 at a trend level, U = 52.50, z = −1.79, p = 0.07).

Data for B. miyamotoi-positive patients is presented in Supplementary Table 1. Mean age was 34 years. Eight of 21 (38%) reported hospitalization (seven medical and one psychiatric) since symptom onset, three for cardiac and two for neurologic abnormalities. All 21 received prior antibiotic treatment, of whom 20 received at least 2 weeks of doxycycline or amoxicillin. Sixteen of the 21 patients lived in the Northeast/Mid-Atlantic USA. Of the remaining five patients, two lived in California, two lived in Florida, and one lived in Illinois. Of the 82 patients in the study, 80 (98%) had not been previously tested for B. miyamotoi infection. Among the 21 patients positive on the GlpQ ELISA, 18 were also tested using the Lyme C6 ELISA and none were positive.

Discussion
..Given that B. miyamotoi disease is an emerging tick-borne illness, further basic science research and in-vitro models are needed to clarify the mechanisms and optimal treatment of B. miyamotoi disease.

DIVERSITY OF TICK-BORNE PATHOGENS- Need to test for co-infections
In a 2018 study that tested ticks submitted by patients to Igenex, 11.3% contained Lyme Borrelia, 3.4% contained tick-borne relapsing fever (TBRF) Borrelia, 3.3% contained Rickettsia, 2.4% contained Babesia, 2.1% contained Ehrlichia and 0.4% contained Bartonella. A concurrent study in which over 10,000 patient samples tested by Igenex were reported, 37.3% were positive for Babesia species, 32.1% for Lyme Borrelia, 27.7% for TBRF, 19.1% for Bartonella, 16.7% for Anaplasma, 12.8% for Rickettsia and 6.9% for Ehrlichia.

..My wife has been ill for over seven years. She has done countless urine, feces, blood, breath, hair and saliva tests – effectively every available type of laboratory test across two continents. This included tests for Lyme and other tick-borne diseases with a specialist laboratory in the United States (ELISA, Western Blot, PCR, etc.)..

..In March, my wife tried a newly developed blood test for bacteria of the borellia genus by Phelix. The result was *positive* for Borrellia miyamotoi (one of many “cousins” of Borellia burgdorfi, the well-known bacteria that causes Lyme disease)..

..Her test results have shown some abnormalities (e.g., gut dysbiosis, abnormal metabolites, poor mitochondrial function, adrenal insufficiency, impaired T4 to T3 conversion, etc.), but never a pathogen. Like so many people with ME/CFS, she has a complex illness without a clear origin – if only she had an identifiable “bad bug” to explain it all!..

..Her doctor indicated that this pathogen could explain her very severe ME/CFS symptoms. We could hardly believe it!..

..I have learned that the new blood test is a break-through for the tick-borne illness community – and may also be a break-through for some ME/CFS patients..

..Unfortunately, it is very difficult to rid a body of tick-borne bacteria: patients describe months and years of grueling IV and oral antibiotic treatments. Yet we are encouraged by recent trials that have had positive results on defeating “persistent” bacteria based on off-label uses of existing drugs (c.f. dapsone and disulfiram)..

Clinicians want guidance in choosing which tests to run and from which labs. This choice should be based upon results of objective validation and proficiency test results, and publications. Labs that do not provide this data should raise concerns.

Thanks to advancements in technology, testing quality has improved over the years. However, approach these new technologies cautiously if data on test accuracy is not provided.

Introduction
Ixodes ticks are the vector of the Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato complex causing Lyme borreliosis (LB) and of Borrelia miyamotoi, a relapsing fever Borrelia species causing Borrelia miyamotoi disease (BMD). The latter disease entity was first described in 2011 (1), and its clinical symptoms in patients in Asia, Europe, and the USA mostly consist of a flu-like illness (2). The recent Frontiers in Medicine article by Michel Franck et al. claims to have detected Borrelia miyamotoi DNA in 43 out of 824 French patients with a complex of non-specific symptoms lasting at least 6 months (3). However, we have serious doubts about the author's findings and conclusions. In this commentary, we describe evident shortcomings of this study and urge for a reconsideration of its interpretation and conclusions.

Dr. Paul Duray Research Fellowship Endowment Inc

Cutting-edge research into persistent Borrelia infection

What we discovered in 2015 was even more disturbing.

Borrelia miyamotoi a Relapsing Fever borrelia, was routinely being seen inside human brains. As Alan continued to do his brain autopsy research on Alzheimer’s brains from Harvard Brain Bank, he found, using fluorescent FISH stains, that B. miyamotoi was not only in many of the brain tissue samples, but that it was usually associated with amyloid plaques.

It may turn out that B. miyamotoi is as prevalent as, or even predominant over B. burgdorferi in human brains and dementia patients.

Host Immune Evasion by Lyme and Relapsing Fever Borreliae: Findings to Lead Future Studies for Borrelia miyamotoi


Brandee L. Stone and Catherine A. Brissette*

Mechanisms of Immune Evasion by B. miyamotoi: Where We Need to be

Even though B. miyamotoi is genetically similar to relapsing fever spirochetes, it has evolved and exists in different vectors (Ixodes not Ornithodoros) with different enzootic cycles and different co-pathogens compared to relapsing fever spirochetes. We should not assume B. miyamotoi utilizes the same set of mechanisms as other relapsing fever spirochetes. B. miyamotoi may use a combination of relapsing fever and Lyme Borrelia mechanisms as well as completely novel mechanisms.

The role of IgM in clearing B. miyamotoi has not been demonstrated. As discussed above, IgM is key in clearing relapsing fever infections. During B. hermsii infections, IgM targets FhbA and other surface proteins (113). IgM likely is important in clearing B. miyamotoi. All immunocompromised patients diagnosed with a B. miyamotoi infection developed meningoencephalitis. A shared factor with these patients has been treatment with rituximab, a monoclonal anti-CD20 antibody targeting IgM-producing CD20-positive B cells. Depletion of B cells may explain how B. miyamotoi is able to migrate to the CNS and causes meningoencephalitis in patients treated with rituximab. The presence of unknown complement inhibitors, however, could contribute to the complement resistance of B. miyamotoi and may be useful in establishing infection (241, 242).

The effects of tick saliva on B. miyamotoi survival have not yet been studied. However, being vectored by Ixodes, B. miyamotoi likely takes advantage of the protective proteins in tick saliva. In addition, understanding interactions between host, vector, and pathogen will aid in the development of Lyme and relapsing fever prevention strategies and thus requires more attention.

Re: Borrelia Miyamotoi

@VerlorengezondheidM,
Rituximab (chemokuur) zal niet het genezende medicijn voor de ziekte van Lyme/chronische Lyme of B. miyamotoi gaan worden. Rituximab onderdrukt het immuunsysteem (witte bloedcellen B-lymfocyten worden uitgeschakeld). Rituximab vernietigt de B-cellen. Als mensen een (bacteriële) infectie oplopen wanneer men geen B-cellen heeft (dus tijdens de behandeling met Rituximab) kan dit erg risicovol zijn in het slechtste geval mogelijk fataal. Zou je dat als Lyme patiënt wenselijk vinden?
Ilads Lyme artsen zijn geen nefroloog of oncoloog.

Screening
..Voordat u kunt starten met de rituximab-behandeling, dient beoordeeld te worden of er geen medische bezwaren zijn tegen de behandeling met een biological, waar de rituximab toe behoort. Omdat een infectie doorgemaakt in het verleden kan opvlammen door de behandeling..
De gevolgen van de behandeling met Rituximab het opvlammen van een doorgemaakte infectie (bacterie Borrelia burgdorferi)?
Bron https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10 ... 00012/full Two patients treated with rituximab for NHL, one from the US (88) and one from the Netherlands (87), with reported recent tick bites developed meningoencephalitis. Motile spirochetes were detected in cerebral spinal fluid in both cases. Interestingly, glpQ was amplified and sequenced from both patient’s samples yet no anti-GlpQ antibodies were detected in the blood or cerebral spinal fluid of the European patient. IgM against B. burgdorferi was negative for both patients. Neither patient reported any of the commonly associated symptoms of a B. miyamotoi infection (e.g., fever, headache, myalgia, malaise). Instead, both patients exhibited neurological symptoms (cognitive processing defects, disturbed gait). A third patient from Germany, also treated with rituximab for NHL, developed Lyme neuroborreliosis-like symptoms (dizziness, vomiting, and headache) (111).
