I am interested in links to journal articles/abstracts on Lyme and other tick borne diseases. What are the best articles? I checked the library here at Lymenet and all the abstracts are pretty old (1997-1998).

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Check out pages 108-114 of this slideshow. It's a long list of published articles.

"Best" is a subjective term. What meets the needs of one person might not meet the needs of another.

PubMed is a comprehensive collection of health science journal articles compiled by the US National Library of Medicine. You can use medical search terms to find articles, and receive alerts on new articles meeting those terms.

The Lyme Disease Digital Library (Lymebrary) is an online consumer health library of articles, websites, and other online resources on tick-borne disease and related areas. Resources selected are chosen for their authority and readability, among other criteria.

LymeInfo collects information from all over the Internet and sorts it into categories on its website. They also have a Yahoo group to alert the group to recent articles of interest.

Hope that helps you,
Sharon

From the May 2007 issue of Clinical Advisor


CONTROVERSY CONTINUES TO FUEL THE "LYME WAR" -(author's details at link)


As two medical societies battle over its diagnosis and treatment, Lyme disease remains a frequently missed illness. Here is how to spot and treat it.

Excerpts:


Meet the players


The opponents in the battle over the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease are the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA), the largest national organization of general infectious disease specialists, (and)

and the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS), an organization made up of physicians from many specialties. ( www.ilads.org )


IDSA maintains that Lyme disease is relatively rare, overdiagnosed, difficult to contract, easy to diagnose through blood testing, and straightforward to treat ( www.journals.uchicago.edu/CID/journal/issues/v43n9/40897/40897.html - Accessed April 6, 2007).


ILADS, by contrast, asserts that the illness is much more common than reported, underdiagnosed, easier to contract than previously believed, difficult to diagnose through commercial blood tests, and difficult to treat, (especially)

especially when treatment is delayed because of commonly encountered diagnostic difficulties ( http://www.ilads.org/guidelines.html - Accessed April 6, 2007).

. . .

" . . .To treat Lyme disease for a comparable number of life cycles, treatment would need to last 30 weeks. . . ."


`` . . .Patients with Lyme disease almost always have negative results on standard blood screening tests and have no remarkable findings on physical exam, so they are frequently referred to mental-health professionals for evaluation.


"...If all cases were detected and treated in the early stages of Lyme disease, the debate over the diagnosis and treatment of late-stage disease would not be an issue, and devastating rheumatologic, neurologic, and cardiac complications could be avoided..."


. . . * Clinicians do not realize that the CDC has gone on record as saying the commercial Lyme tests are designed for epidemiologic rather than diagnostic purposes, and a diagnosis should be based on clinical presentation rather than serologic results.

Dear Keebler,

Thank you for posting the references above. The article in the Journal of Neuroinflammation was excellent.

I honestly don't understand how any M.D. could claim that Borrelia is "easy" to treat in light of the evidence provided in the article. Of course, most MD's don't read peer reviewed research.

I am new to this forum but am very impressed with the knowledge that many members have regarding Lyme and related tick diseases.

Everybody should print the above article out and give it to their MD's, neurologists, etc. etc.

Thank you very much!

Infected 1988
Diagnosed 2005
still have neuro symptoms but have other markers of improvement

Dali,

thanks for your note. Welcome and sorry that you are dealing with all this.

As for taking good articles to our doctors, well, we have done that and are still kicked out the door, hat in hand. Over and over. Over and over. It does no good. It's a very deep problem with the medical system.
