Lyme disease, diphtheria, and leprosy are bacterial diseases characterized by extensive peripheral nerve damage. Diphtheria and leprosy are now rare in the United States, but Lyme disease is on the rise. It can cause a wide range of neuropathic disorders, including a rapidly developing, painful polyneuropathy, often within a few weeks after initial infection by a tick bite

I don`t know for sure but this looks like a very large organization although it does not look like a government organization but I thought others may be interested to see lyme mentioned.

This is one of the institutes of the NIH. It is a government organization. Good that they are interested in lyme because the NIAID, which handles infectious diseases for the NIH, has botched it.
