Fighting Chronic Lyme Disease

Medical Research: Scientific Confirmation of Bartonella Transmission from Mother to Fetus

bartonella transmission in utero

From the Journal of Clinical Microbiology: A research study in 2010 provides the first scientific evidence that Bartonella (a common co-infection of Lyme Disease) can be transmitted to children in utero or during cesarean section. The paper further reports that, based on other research, an increasing number of arthropods, including biting flies, fleas, keds, lice, sandflies, besides ticks, are confirmed or suspected vectors for Bartonella.
