Nonhuman primates have been found susceptible to infection with borrelias which cause relapsing fever in man (2). Preliminary experiments showed that patas monkeys (Erythrocebus patas) and vervets (African green monkeys, Cercopithecus aethiops) may serve as satisfactory models for the investigation of the immunologic features of infections with Borrelia turicatae 2 and B. hermsii, which are the two most frequently reported causative agents of human borreliosis in the United States.
