Prevent contamination by pathogens

As the name already suggests, infectious disease is preceded by infection with pathogens. The pathogens are differentiated in different groupy domains, the most important being: bacteria, viruses and fungi. You can find out more about the different forms and occurrences in our analysis directory . Entered into the human organism, they multiply and can be transferred from one body to the next. The causers of the disease can penetrate the most diverse parts of the organism.

 

Transmission paths

In nature there are often unrealized contacts with ticks, their larvae or nymph forms, or with other insects. The most frequently transmitted pathogens are the Borrelia. However, ticks and mosquitoes are also responsible for the transmission of a large number of zoonotic pathogens, such as anaplasms, Ehrlichia, Rickettsia, Bartonella, Chlamydia, Babesia and other pathogens. Researchers have now also discovered another, much more dangerous transmission path: sexual intercourse. Borrelia are related to the syphilis virus and can be regularly detected in the vaginal area of infected women.

 

Symptoms

All these infections are associated with multisymtoma disorders, which are frequently, and almost usually not recognized as the cause of the disease and are often dismissed as psychosomatic. Striking complaints are rapid fatigue to "burn out", depression, "jumping" joint pain, brainfog, concentration disturbances, imperative (immediate) urge to urinate, increased sweating - the symptom list is long. The medical examination of all symptoms and the medical experience leads to the disease. In the case of a depressive illness, the Bornavirus infection must also be thought of, which is probably transmitted from the horse to man, but also from person to person.

 

 

Therapy possibilities

Fresh, acute bacterial infection diseases - provided they are recognized as such - can often be treated very well with antibiotics. Chronic diseases, on the other hand, present a major challenge both diagnostically and therapeutically. Chronic-active borreliosis usually requires long-term treatment with antibiotics. This can be done either by oral or by intravenous infusion. For infusion therapies, we provide our physicians with our therapy area.

Treat Co-infections successfully

The bite of ticks can cause serious consequences for the host. Borreliosis alone causes mild to severe disease symptoms. In addition, different coinfections can be transmitted. The various pathogens also weaken the human organism and lead to further symptoms. For example, if the patient was infected with Babesia, the patient may develop jaundice or anemia. Other pathogens cause cardiac inflammation and muscle complaints or affect the
eye, respiratory and genital areas.

 

In addition, an immune system weakened by co-infections is particularly susceptible to further pathogens. The defenses of the patient are exhausted and further pathogens can multiply faster in the host, spread and further damage the organism. For this reason, co-infections and their consequences should under no circumstances be underestimated. If, in addition to the typical symptoms of borreliosis, other features suggest that such a disease is indicated, a blood test should be carried out.
