The Lyme Elispot-LTT is designed to detect cellular activity in relation to Borrelia burgdorferi in chronic and acute cases of Lyme disease.
Checking whether a Lyme disease therapy has been successful is almost impossible, as Borrellia antibodies can be found in blood years after infection. The Elispot-LTT test for Borrelia closes this diagnostic gap, as it detects actual cellular activity in relation to Borrelia burgdorferi in chronic and also acute cases of Lyme disease. The Elispot-LTT test can detect 1 reactive T-cell per 100,000 lymphocytes. This is 20–200 times more sensitive than an ELISA Borrelia test.
The LTT test reflects the actual, current Borrelia burgdorferi activity of chronic and also acute Lyme infections. The Elispot-LTT is highly sensitive and can detect even one single Borrelia-reactive T-cell in the blood. The Elispot-LTT is very helpful when monitoring a chronic or acute Lyme therapy, and should usually become negative about 6 to 8 weeks after completion of an effective therapy.
