What is Chronic Lyme Disease?

Brian Fallon

Chronic Lyme Disease is a source of much debate, causing divisions among doctors and distress and confusion to patients.  This talk will summarize what is known about chronic Lyme disease by reviewing epidemiologic studies, clinical trials, animal studies, immunologic and proteomic studies.  This talk will also draw upon findings from other disorders that may shed light on the etiology of persistent symptoms. Finally, research projects will be suggested that will pave the way for the next phase of breakthroughs in our understanding of chronic Lyme symptoms.
