I've done a search.. here's what I've found, but first a comment:

Look at the players in this vaccine- deja vu?

For a rare disease- and one that's easily treated, there has been and is alot of money invested in patenting and marketing a sucessful vaccine.

There's got to be ALOT of money to be gained. Oh..and check out the details on Baxter Intn'l.

1) SEC INFO 1998-1999

North American Vaccine, Inc. (the "Company") signed a definitive Share Exchange Agreement dated as of November 17, 1999 to be acquired by Baxter International Inc.

QUOTE FROM ARTICLE
IT'S just a coincidence that the research was done in one of the places where it might do the most good. But after 10 years of work, scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory have fashioned a new Lyme disease vaccine that they hope will be on the market by the end of the decade.
The active ingredient is called outer-surface protein A. But the vaccine, now being developed by Baxter Healthcare Corporation of Deerfield, Ill., doesn't have Food and Drug Administration approval or a commercial name. It hasn't even been tested on humans yet.
''It's still in the very early stages,'' said Deborah Spak, a Baxter spokeswoman. ''It would be five to seven years before there's a commercially available vaccine.''END QUOTE

Well, they better do something different this time; if it is just like the last OspA vaccine, it will have problems too.

I think GlaxoSmithKline has a lyme vaccine in the works too, maybe just for Europe?
