From: Experience of Lyme disease and preferences for precautions: a cross-sectional survey of UK patients

  B(SE) Odds ratio (or Exp b) [95% CI]
Constant −3.52* (1.61) -
Knowledge of ticks and LD 0.21*(0.09) 1.24 [1.02; 1.50]
Direct event leading to the realization of tick bite 1.38**(0.42) 3.98 [1.74; 9.12]
