  • Biomarkers
  • Information

B. burgdorferi IgM antibodies

B. burgdorferi IgM antibodies confirm that the body is infected with the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. Lyme disease is caused by the biting of a tick which is infected with the bacteria Borrelia.

B. burgdorferi IgG antibodies

B. burgdorferi IgG are antibodies produced by the body several weeks after the body is infected with the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. Lyme disease is caused by the biting of a tick which is infected with the bacteria Borrelia.

Symptoms of Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is systematic as it can affect the whole body. A common early sign of infection is a circular, expanding rash which has the appearance of a bull's eye Other symptoms that an adult may experience are:

  • flu-like symptoms of aching, fever, headache, sweating
  • fatigue
  • joint pain
  • stiff neck
  • abnormal skin sensations

The rare symptoms are heart block and blurred vision.

Additional Information

Borrelia burgdorferi, is carried by blacklegged ticks, also called deer ticks. Deer ticks are very small, about the size of a poppy seed, so they can be hard to see.


The early symptoms of Lyme disease can be difficult to distinguish from the flu. They may include fever, headache, fatigue, and muscle aches. A rash that looks like a bull’s-eye may also develop at the site of the tick bite. If not treated, Lyme disease can spread to other parts of the body and cause more serious problems.


There is no one definitive test for diagnosing Lyme disease. However, a blood test called an ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) can often be used to detect antibodies to the bacteria that causes Lyme disease.


If you think you may have Lyme disease, see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. Early diagnosis and treatment is key to preventing serious complications.


An ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) is a blood test that can be used to detect antibodies to the bacteria that causes Lyme disease. It is one of the tests that may be used to diagnose Lyme disease.

Transmission of Lyme Disease

Lyme disease, also known as Lyme borreliosis, is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. It is generally passed to humans by the bite of a tick infected with these bacteria. These ticks are about the size of a pin head and are found in woodland and around heathland.

However, Lyme disease is not transmitted from person to person. For example, a person cannot get infected by touching, kissing, or having sex with a person who has Lyme disease. 

Symptoms on an average appear two weeks after the tick bite.

5%
of tick bites cause you a Lyme Disease
Recent studies conducted in Europe estimate that 1-5% of tick bites can lead to Lyme disease. On average, between 2.5–5.1% of ticks are contaminated in England and Wales, although this digit can vary in different areas and across years. In 2021, there were a total of 1,156 laboratory-confirmed cases of Lyme disease in England and Wales.
27%
of the total is infected in Scotland
Of all the cases surveyed across the year, most cases are reported between June and August. Reports suggest that this is due to a moist climate and an increasing number of immigrants. In addition, the South of England also recorded a higher than an average number of cases.

Experts Opinion

"Lyme disease is a common disease caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi transmitted by ticks. Lyme disease can be very debilitating and symptoms may be present only 2 days after a patient has been exposed to ticks."
