We have studied the immune response to a variable surface-exposed loop region of the P66 outer membrane protein from Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato by using an enzyme immunoassay. Lyme borreliosis populations found in North America and Sweden were preferentially more seroreactive to P66 from their respective regional species, namely, B. burgdorferi sensu stricto and B. garinii and B. afzelii, respectively.
