     ILADS Extended Antibiotic Lyme disease Treatment Guidelines in Top 5 Percent

    Lexington, KY USA
    By Mac McDonald, BA, MA, CCE
    Editor Lymeblog News

    A message from Samuel Shor, MD, FACP, President, International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society 

    We are proud to announce that Altmetrics has affirmed the evidence treatment guidelines for Lyme disease are in the top 5% of all research articles. Altmetrics citation-based metrics consists of qualitative data that tracks research publications and their ability to reach and influence their audience. According to Altmetrics, their data encompassed more than 107,000 downloads.

    After the guidelines by the Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) had been criticized for not addressing the severity of chronic manifestations, ILADS published guidelines in hopes of filling the gap. Due to the growing number of chronic conditions, controversy over treatment, and high level of public concern, ILADS composed their guidelines based on The Grading of Recommendations Assessment Development and Evaluation (GRADE). ILADS assessed and graded available research evidence and shifted their guidelines from evidence to recommendations, providing individuals with a transparent and systematic framework. GRADE took in account the harm and benefits of interventions, patient preferences, and values.

    The extended antibiotics recommendation provided by the ILADS guidelines has already been adopted, and that notion is continuing to grow. According to a survey in...

     Virginia Doctors reminded: Unreliable Lyme Test Warning is Mandatory

    Virginia Board of Medicine Warns Health Care Providers Lyme Tests Are Unreliable!
    If you are tested and do not receive this warning, you can file a complaint with the Virginia Board of Healthcare Professions.

    The Virginia Board of Medicine recently reminded all Virginia doctors that standard Lyme tests often produce false results and doctors should not rely on the results when symptoms persist.


    It also reminded them of their legal obligation to notify patients in writing that Lyme testing is unreliable


    The Lyme testing notification reminder was the first item in the board's April newsletter.  See a copy in the picture below. Click on the picture for a copy of the PDF sent to all Virginia doctors.

     Lyme Disease (MSIDS) May Have Killed 5,300 Year Old Ice Man Ötzi

    LymeBlog News
    Lymeblog News
    April 11. 2015
    Lexington, KY USA
    By Mac McDonald, BA, MA, CCE
    Editor Lymeblog News

    The mystery of Ötzi the Iceman, the 5,300 frozen mummy discovered in the Easter Alps about 20 years ago, may have been solved.  Scientists said it appears dear, old Ötzi may have had the oldest known case of Lyme disease and that eventually led to his demise.


    Researchers analyzed the Iceman's genome and discovered his genetic material contained the bacterium borrelia burgdorferi which is responsible for the mislabeled condition which was named Lyme disease because a researcher in the last half of the 20th century, Allen Steere, thought he had discovered a hitherto unknown infection. 


    For much of the 20th century the public were led to believe that the disease Dr. Steare called Lyme disease was only located in or near the eastern portion of the American state of Connecticut. Certain members of the medical hierarchy insisted that borrelia burgdorferi, which was the scientific name assigned to the disease, could only exist in the northeastern United States which appears to have resulted in large numbers of people not being correctly diagnosed in the United States and Europe.


    but there is evidence that the bacteria is also transmitted sexually and in vitro (from mother to child).


    The evidence of Lyme disease is an intriguing investigative lead, according to ...

     Bay Area Lyme Foundation Offers Free Tick Testing Nationwide

    Support Groups

    Free Tick Testing Initiative Is First In The Nation and Aims to Map Tick-borne Diseases Across the U.S. Through Crowd-sourcing


    Lymeblog News
    February 26, 2016
    Lexington, KY USA
    By Mac McDonald, BA, MA, CCE
    Editor Lymeblog News

    Silicon Valley, CA — Bay Area Lyme Foundation, a leading nonprofit funder of innovative Lyme disease research in the US, today announced that the Foundation is the first to offer free tick testing for residents of the U.S.  Testing is available through a partnership with Nate Nieto, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of Biological Sciences, Northern Arizona University and his lab.  Bay Area Lyme Foundation hopes to use this crowd-sourced data as a vehicle for gaining a greater understanding of the geography of tick-borne diseases in the U.S.  If successful in accumulating data, it will be the first crowd-sourced study of its kind.


    “A major challenge for the Lyme disease community is understanding the prevalence of Lyme disease bacteria in ticks throughout the U.S., so that physicians and residents can be appropriately vigilant to the symptoms of the disease.” explained Laure Woods, President and Co-founder, Bay Area Lyme Foundation, who conceptualized this idea, and provided funding to Bay Area Lyme Foundation through a grant from the Laurel Foundation to cover the initial costs of the tick analyses.


    “With this effort, we intend to make it easier for people who have been bit by ticks, particularly in geographic areas where Lyme disease is not yet recognized as endemic, to understand their potential risk,” added Woods.


    This free service is designed to offer insights into the pathogens carried by ticks, and the results, in addition to any symptoms, should be discussed with a healthcare provider. Results from the tick test are ... (Read More)

     New Lyme disease bacteria discovered

    Lyme ResearchLymeblog News

    Lexington, KY USA
    By Mac McDonald, BA, MA, CCE
    Editor Lymeblog News

    Borrelia mayonii closely related to B. burgdorferi

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in collaboration with Mayo Clinic and health officials from Minnesota, Wisconsin, and North Dakota, report the discovery of a new species of bacteria (Borrelia mayonii) that causes Lyme disease in people. Until now, Borrelia burgdorferi was the only species believed to cause Lyme disease in North America.


    Scientists at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, first suspected the possibility of new bacteria after lab tests from six people with suspected Lyme disease produced unusual results, according to the findings published today in Lancet Infectious Diseases. Additional genetic testing at the Mayo Clinic and CDC found that the bacteria, provisionally named Borrelia mayonii, is closely related to B. burgdorferi.


    “This discovery adds another important piece of information to the complex picture of tickborne diseases in the United States,” said Dr. Jeannine Petersen, microbiologist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


    So far, new Lyme species found only in upper Midwest

    Limited information from the first six patients suggests that illness caused by B. mayonii is similar to that caused by B. burgdorferi, but with a few possible differences. Like B. burgdorferi, B. mayonii causes fever, headache, rash, and neck pain in the early stages of infection (days after exposure) and arthritis in later stages of infection (weeks after exposure). Unlike B. burgdorferi, however, B. mayonii is associated with nausea and vomiting, diffuse rashes (rather than a single so-called “bull’s-eye” rash), and a higher concentration of bacteria in the blood.


    The researchers believe that, like B. burgdorferi, B. mayonii is transmitted to humans by ...
