inflammatory proteins in erythema migrans patients [ Time Frame: up to 12 months follow-up ]
The inflammatory immune profiles will be assessed using Luminex to measure the expression of cytokines and chemokines representative of innate and adaptive TH1, TH2, TH17, and B cell responses in serum and if available, skin, of patients during active infection and after treatment.

gene polymorphisms in erythema migrans patients [ Time Frame: at enrollment ]
The expression of disease-relevant genomic variants will be assessed using ImmunoChip.
Same as current
transcriptome profiles in erythema migrans patients [ Time Frame: at 6 month follow-up ]
We will use RNA sequencing of individual immune cell subtypes from patients to determine their transcriptome.

Cytokines and Chemokines in Erythema Migrans
Inflammatory Proteins, Gene Polymorphisms, and Transcriptome Profiles in Patients With Erythema Migrans
The main objective of this study is to characterize the inflammatory proteins, gene polymorphisms, and transcriptome profiles in patients with erythema migrans to gain better insight into pathogenesis of early Lyme borreliosis and to define new immune modulators that could serve as biomarkers of disease activity.
