Introduction Reports of an unusual cluster of children diagnosed with juvenile arthritis and adults with similar symptoms in Lyme, Connecticut and two surrounding towns were brought to the attention of public health authorities in 1975. Many patients reported a previous tick bite and 25% recalled a subsequent rash, often characterized by an expanding center . The causative agent of this mysterious outbreak, initially referred to as Lyme arthritis, was finally identified in 1982.

PARASITES & VECTORS 06/03/18 Control of Lyme borreliosis and other Ixodes ricinus-borne diseases. Clinical presentation of LB and TBE LB is divided in three partially overlapping stages, reflecting the duration of the infection and the severity of the disease [23, 81].
The first stage is characterized by the hallmark EM, an erythematous expanding skin lesion at the site of the tick-bite (Fig. 1), usually occurring 1–2 weeks after the tick-bite. When left untreated or unnoticed the infection can disseminate and cause early disseminated and eventually late disseminated LB, the second and third stage respectively . The characteristic manifestations of early disseminated LB include other skin manifestations, such as lymphocytoma and multiple EM, carditis, oligoarthritis and neurological symptoms, such as meningo-(poly)radiculitis (Bannwarth syndrome) with or without cranial nerve involvement , amongst other rare manifestations.
HEALTHCARE 14/04/18 Persistent Borrelia Infection in Patients with Ongoing Symptoms of Lyme Disease. Introduction: Lyme disease is a tickborne illness that generates controversy among medical providers and researchers.
One of the key topics of debate is the existence of persistent infection with the Lyme spirochete, Borreliaburgdorferi, in patients who have been treated with recommended doses of antibiotics yet remain symptomatic. Persistent spirochetal infection despite antibiotic therapy has recently been demonstrated in non-human primates. Int. J. Environ. Res.

Lyme disease (LD) is the most common vector-borne disease in the temperate zone of the Northern Hemisphere. Diagnosis of LD is mainly based on clinical symptoms supported with serology (detection of anti-Borrelia antibodies) and is often misdiagnosed in areas of endemicity.

MED. 11/10/17 Selective Essential Oils from Spice or Culinary Herbs Have High Activity against Stationary Phase and Biofilm Borrelia burgdorferi. Introduction Lyme disease or Borreliosis is the most common vector borne illness in the United States with an estimated 300,000 cases per year (1).
The illness is transmitted by a tick bite and in some endemic areas, where more than 40% of the ticks are infected with the causative agent of Borreliosis, Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato complex species, which increases the risk of transmission to human host (2). The difficulty in the clinical management of Borreliosis is that the current treatment regimen recommended for acute stage of illness of 21 days of Doxycycline (Dox) (3) leaves over 20% of patients with chronic symptoms that can last over 6 months (4). These chronic symptoms can be debilitating fatigue, muscular and joint pain, and cognitive and neurologic impairment.

ENTOMOLOGY TODAY 05/07/17 CDC Study Sheds Light on New Lyme Disease-Causing Bacteria. The blacklegged tick (Ixodes scapularis), also known as the deer tick, is the primary vector of Lyme disease.
A new species of bacteria that causes Lyme disease has been found to transmit via a tick bite in roughly the same amount of time as the primary bacterial pathogen that causes Lyme disease. (Photo credit: Andrew Nuss) A new species of bacteria that causes Lyme disease needs the same amount of time for transmission after a tick bite compared to previously implicated bacteria, according to new research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Existing guidelines for frequent tick checks and prompt removal of attached ticks remain the same.

THE CONVERSATION 13/12/16 Lyme : le grand bazar des tests de dépistage.
C’est devant la justice, actuellement, que se discute la fiabilité des tests de dépistage pour Lyme, cette maladie transmise par les tiques. Une situation inédite et assez déroutante pour les scientifiques qui, comme moi, travaillent sur le sujet dans leur laboratoire de recherche. Entre les tests homologués peu fiables, les tests non officiels peut-être plus fiables mais non évalués et les tests complètement fantaisistes défendus par des malades dans le désarroi, c’est… le grand bazar. Aiguillonnée par la demande légitime des patients, la communauté des chercheurs met désormais les bouchées doubles pour faire le tri parmi toutes ces méthodes et proposer le plus vite possible des tests efficaces. La Cour d’appel de Colmar doit rendre aujourd’hui, le 14 décembre, son arrêt dans le procès des « rebelles » de Lyme.
L'un des prévenus, pharmacienne, pratiquait dans son laboratoire d'analyses à Strasbourg une méthode de dépistage alternative dans cette maladie transmise par les tiques. BAY AREA LYME FOUNDATION 16/10/16 CRISPR Technology: A New Approach for Eradicating Borrelia. Dr. Chase Beisel is an Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University who was recognized earlier this year with one of Bay Area Lyme Foundation’s prestigious Emerging Leader Awards.
This honor is in recognition of and support for his lab‘s novel work exploring CRISPR technology as a potential treatment for Lyme infections. Dr. Beisel’s work integrates molecular biology, chemical engineering, and mathematical modeling and has been acknowledged with several National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institute for Health (NIH) and other important awards. His foray into the field of Lyme is a new direction for his lab and ties directly to the Foundation’s aim of attracting some of the brightest and best minds in the country to apply innovative new approaches and methodology to accelerate the development of new diagnostics and treatments for Lyme disease. THE SCIENTIST 01/08/16 New Lyme Disease Test Developed by Summer Student. LYME LAB: Temple Douglas, then a high school student, works with former George Mason University grad student Davide Tamburro during the Aspiring Scientist Summer Internship Program.EVAN CANTWELL/GEORGE MASON UNIVERSITYToward the end of her 2009 summer internship at a George Mason University proteomics lab, high school student Temple Douglas wondered if she could use her research to turn a family problem into a clinical breakthrough.
Lyme disease, a scourge in her native Virginia, had previously struck both her mother and brother, so the family was aware of the drawbacks of the single available diagnostic test. The current blood test probes for antibodies developed against the disease-causing bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi, which only appear several weeks after the onset of symptoms such as the telltale reddish oval or “bull’s-eye” rash that appears in three-fourths of cases. It’s so rewarding to see that my research materialized into something useful. PARASITES & VECTORS 24/06/16 Borrelia sp. phylogenetically different from Lyme disease- and relapsing fever-related Borrelia spp. in Amblyomma varanense from Python reticulatus. Ticks were collected from the following five snake species: Python reticulatus, Ophiophagus hannah, Ptyas korros, Naja kaouthia and Elaphe radiata.
Four Amblyomma varanense ticks (three males and one female) were collected from one P. reticulatus. One A. varanense tick (one female) and two Amblyomma pattoni (males) were collected from O. hannah. Two A. pattoni (males) were collected from N. kaouthia. In addition, two A. pattoni males were collected from E. radiata. Finally, one A. varanense tick (male) was collected from E. radiata. A total of 12 ticks was collected from snakes and examined by PCR for the presence of the Borrelia spp. genes. Borrelia sp. Phylogenetic trees were constructed using the neighbour-joining method (PAUP 4.0b1) .

Abstract. BERKELEY UNIVERSITY 25/02/15 Study IDs key birds that host Lyme disease bacteria in California. Birds are more important than previously recognized as hosts for Lyme disease-causing bacteria in California, according to a new study led by UC Berkeley researchers. The findings, published today (Wednesday, Feb. 25) in the journal PLOS ONE, shine a light on an important new reservoir in the western United States for the corkscrew-shaped bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi, responsible for Lyme disease. Wood rats, western gray squirrels and other small mammals have been identified in previous studies as wildlife hosts of the Lyme disease spirochete bacterium in California, but fewer studies have looked at the role of birds as reservoirs.
“The role of birds in the maintenance of Lyme disease bacteria in California is poorly understood,” said study lead author Erica Newman, a UC Berkeley Ph.D. student in the Energy and Resources Group and the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management.
