    In vitro effect of salivary gland extract from fed Ixodes ricinus, the competent vector of Lyme borreliosis in Europe, on the growth of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (B. garinii, B. afzelii and B. burgdorferi sensu stricto) was examined in BSK-H medium. Motility rate, concentration of motile spirochaetes and their morphology were estimated at intervals of 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 days using darkfield microscopy. Salivary gland extract derived from I. ricinus stimulated markedly the growth of three genomic species of borreliae. The results confirm a substantial role of salivary glands in the mechanism of pathogen transmission to vertebrate host.
