Merge Confusion[edit]

While the article currently equates Borrelia with Borrelia burgdorferi (agent of Lyme disease), Borrelia is the genus, and it also includes other bacteria such as the agents of Relapsing fever. Many new Borrelia species and strains have been recently discovered according to the Lyme disease article; whether or not some of these belong in the Lyme disease or Relapsing fever category (or another) seems yet to be determined. But they're not all Borrelia burgorferi.-- 19:11, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Borrelia aren't microaerophilic[edit]

According to the source borrelia don't need oxygen. So they aren't microaerophile but obligate anaerobe. This is important for patients, because they should increase their oxygen intake. -- (talk) 14:08, 7 November 2013 (UTC)

Actually, some Borellia are obligate anaerobe and some have aerotolerance according to -- (talk) 14:11, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
