The Ehrlichia Antibodies test is designed to detect the tick-transmitted Ehrlichia/Anaplasma bacteria, which can cause fever- and flu-like symptoms. Only some Ehrlichia/Anaplasma bacteria infections are severe however; most have a harmless disease progression. The number of chronic Ehrlichia infections is still unknown.

Ehrlichia bacteria used to be grouped as Rickettsiosis, but now it is recognized as a disease pattern of its own. The bacteria type Ehrlichia can be transmitted to humans by ticks. Severe progression of the infection can also cause myalgia; liver and kidney dysfunctions; as well as meningitis.

Indication:

  • to diagnose an active Ehrlichia/Anaplasma infection
  • to determine the duration of therapy
  • to monitor treatment results after a Ehrlichia/Anaplasma therapy
