Difference in Lyme tests in US and Europe
Excerpts:

"Although two-tier testing is standard practice in both the United States and Europe for the serologic diagnosis of Lyme borreliosis (LB), the test kits generally differ. The purpose of this study was to determine if the testing used in the United States will detect LB acquired in Europe and vice versa."

" Two-tier serologic testing with the US test kits may be unsatisfactory for detection of LB acquired in Europe. First-tier testing with an assay such as the C6 ELISA should be considered as a stand-alone diagnostic strategy in such cases."
