Product Description

Rickettsia are endemic bacterias and found in many vectors like ticks, fleas, mites and lice and are spreaded in Mediterranean countries, Eastern Europe, the tropics and North America. These bacteria cause in humans diverse diseases with different clinical pictures, which are grouped together medically to the group of Rickettsioses. Examples include typhus (syn. Typhus exanthematicus), rickettsialpox, Brill-Zinsser disease, Boutonneuse fever (Mediterranean tick-borne fever) and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.  Rickettsiae thrive – like viruses -, as intracellular parasites exclusively in living cells. In this way, they manage to escape the immune system of their hosts.
