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. 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.

Le premier signe est souvent une inflammation locale de la peau, l'"érythème migrant", qui apparaît quelques jours après la piqûre, généralement accompagné de symptômes grippaux. Un traitement antibiotique est recommandé. Mais parfois la bactérie n'est pas détectée ou résiste. Elle se camoufle alors dans l'organisme et contamine le système nerveux central.

PLOS 25/02/15 Borrelia burgdorferi Sensu Lato Spirochetes in Wild Birds in Northwestern California: Associations with Ecological Factors, Bird Behavior and Tick Infestation. Abstract Although Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato (s.l.) are found in a great diversity of vertebrates, most studies in North America have focused on the role of mammals as spirochete reservoir hosts.
We investigated the roles of birds as hosts for subadult Ixodes pacificus ticks and potential reservoirs of the Lyme disease spirochete B. burgdorferi sensu stricto (s.s.) in northwestern California. Overall, 623 birds representing 53 species yielded 284 I. pacificus larvae and nymphs. We used generalized linear models and zero-inflated negative binomial models to determine associations of bird behaviors, taxonomic relationships and infestation by I. pacificus with borrelial infection in the birds. 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.

In particular, the introduction of a new host species can increase health threats by adding a new reservoir and/or by amplifying the circulation of either exotic or native pathogens. Lyme borreliosis is a multi-host vector-borne disease caused by bacteria belonging to the Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato complex.
