Researchers: May Lyme Have Your Attention, Please?

Underdiagnosed or overdiagnosed? Easily cured or everlasting? Lyme disease is a tricky flashpoint for discordant groups of physicians and patients.

The controversies are widely covered—what’s really needed, says editor Pamela Weintraub, is a spotlight on potentially game-changing research. 

From prevention (vaccine development or releasing Lyme-resistant mice) to diagnosis and treatment (pinpointing neurological expressions like brain inflammation), researchers are working on all fronts to battle a disease with a current treatment failure of 20% or more. 

The Quote: “It is biomedical research, not a fight made for social media influencers and the media, that will deliver true solutions and science is stepping up.”
