Paul M Arnaboldi, Christina D'Arco, Yosefa Hefter, Sheila Nolan, Dean A Jobe, Steven M Callister, Raymond J Dattwyler,

<h4>Background</h4>QuantiFERON ELISA with Borrelia burgdorferi peptide antigens was previously shown to reliably detect IFN-γ in blood samples from adult patients with early Lyme disease and the response disappeared rapidly after treatment. We evaluated the response before and after appropriate antibiotic therapy in adolescent and adult subjects with more diverse stages ... Read more >>

Evaluation of a Novel Multiplex High-Definition PCR Assay for Detection of Tick-Borne Pathogens in Whole-Blood Specimens.

Blake W Buchan, Dean A Jobe, Michael Mashock, Derek Gerstbrein, Matthew L Faron, Nathan A Ledeboer, Steven M Callister,

The prevalence of tick-borne infections has been steadily increasing in both number and geographic distribution in the United States and abroad. This increase, in conjunction with the continued recognition of novel pathogens transmitted by ticks, has made accurate diagnosis of these infections challenging. Mainstay serologic tests are insensitive during the ... Read more >>

Detection of IFN-γ Secretion by T Cells Collected Before and After Successful Treatment of Early Lyme Disease.

Steven M Callister, Dean A Jobe, Aleksandra Stuparic-Stancic, Misato Miyamasu, Jeff Boyle, Raymond J Dattwyler, Paul M Arnaboldi,

<h4>Background</h4>Current serodiagnostics for Lyme disease lack sensitivity during early disease, and cannot determine treatment response. We evaluated an assay based on QuantiFERON technology utilizing peptide antigens derived from Borrelia burgdorferi to stimulate interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) release as an alternative to serodiagnosis for the laboratory detection of Lyme disease.<h4>Methods</h4>Blood was obtained from ...

Outer surface protein C peptide derived from Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto as a target for serodiagnosis of early lyme disease.

Paul M Arnaboldi, Rudra Seedarnee, Mariya Sambir, Steven M Callister, Josephine A Imparato, Raymond J Dattwyler,

Current serodiagnostic assays for Lyme disease are inadequate at detecting early infection due to poor sensitivity and nonspecificity that arise from the use of whole bacteria or bacterial proteins as assay targets; both targets contain epitopes that are cross-reactive with epitopes found in antigens of other bacterial species. Tests utilizing ... Read more >>

Sanjay K Shukla, Madhulatha Pantrangi, Buffy Stahl, Adam M Briska, Mary E Stemper, Trevor K Wagner, Emily B Zentz, Steven M Callister, Steven D Lovrich, John K Henkhaus, Colin W Dykes,

Despite being a clonal pathogen, Staphylococcus aureus continues to acquire virulence and antibiotic-resistant genes located on mobile genetic elements such as genomic islands, prophages, pathogenicity islands, and the staphylococcal chromosomal cassette mec (SCCmec) by horizontal gene transfer from other staphylococci. The potential virulence of a S. aureus strain is often ... Read more >>

Dean T Nardelli, Joshua O Luedtke, Erik L Munson, Thomas F Warner, Steven M Callister, Ronald F Schell,

The immunological events leading to the development of Lyme arthritis in humans are partially understood.

Interleukin-35 enhances Lyme arthritis in Borrelia-vaccinated and -infected mice.

Joseph Kuo, Dean T Nardelli, Thomas F Warner, Steven M Callister, Ronald F Schell,

Interleukin-35 (IL-35) has been reported to inhibit the production of interleukin-17 (IL-17) as a means of preventing arthritis and other inflammatory diseases. We previously showed that treatment of Borrelia-vaccinated and -infected mice with anti-IL-17 antibody at the time of infection prevented the development of arthritis. The anti-IL-17 antibody-treated mice lacked ... Read more >>

Human Lyme disease vaccines: past and future concerns.

Dean T Nardelli, Erik L Munson, Steven M Callister, Ronald F Schell,

The development of a vaccine for Lyme disease was intensely pursued in the 1990s. However, citing a lack of demand, the first human Lyme disease vaccine was withdrawn from the market less than 5 years after its approval. The public's concerns about the vaccine's safety also likely contributed to the ... Read more >>

Interleukin-23 is required for development of arthritis in mice vaccinated and challenged with Borrelia species.

Nicholas J Kotloski, Dean T Nardelli, Sara Heil Peterson, Jose R Torrealba, Thomas F Warner, Steven M Callister, Ronald F Schell,

We recently hypothesized that T helper 17 (Th17) cells and their associated cytokines are involved in the development of arthritis following infection with Borrelia burgdorferi. Here, we show that interleukin-23 (IL-23), a survival factor for Th17 cells, is required for the induction of arthritis in mice vaccinated with B. burgdorferi ... Read more >>
