Background: Lyme disease is an infection caused by Borrelia burgdorferi, a bacteria that is transmitted to humans by ticks. It can cause many different symptoms including rash, fever, headache, meningitis (infection of the central nervous system), and arthritis. While most patients improve after taking antibiotics, some patients continue to have symptoms. It is currently unknown why some patients continue to have symptoms. One possibility is that the antibiotics have not...
The purpose of this study is to see how well antibiotics work in reducing chronic fatigue symptoms, such as tiredness, in patients that were treated for Lyme Disease. Fatigue is a common symptom of Lyme Disease. When fatigue does not improve after treatment, patients are considered to have Post Lyme Syndrome (PLS). The chronic fatigue seen in these patients appears to be related to the initial infection which causes Lyme Disease. It is believed, but not proven, that treatme...
Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne disease in the United States. It is caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi. It may exist in a chronic form and be the result of: 1) active infection by B. burgdorferi; 2) damage caused by the original infectious process; or 3) the presence of co-infection with another organism transmitted by Ixodes ticks. The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness, for seropositive patients, of intensive antibiotic tr...
Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne disease in the United States. It is caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi. It may exist in a chronic form and be the result of: 1) persistent infection by B. burgdorferi; 2) damage caused by the original infectious process; or 3) the presence of coinfection with another organism transmitted by Ixodes ticks. The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness, in seronegative patients, of intensive antibiotic...
Hypothesis: Does treatment of lower extremity clothing with permethrin prevent Lyme disease? This is a double-blind, randomized clinical trial using permethrin treatment of clothing to prevent Lyme disease.
Lyme disease is due to Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato and is transmitted by a tick vector of the genus Ixodes. One of the clinical forms of this disease in the disseminated phase is the appearance of arthritis, classically mono or oligo-arthritis in the large joints.
The investigators will focus on elderly patients with early Lyme borreliosis with the aim of assessing clinical course, serological response and treatment outcome of the disease as compared to younger adults. Furthermore, the investigators will compare the prevalence of nonspecific symptoms among patients and among age-matched controls without a history of Lyme borreliosis.
The objective of this study is to demonstrate the clinical performance of the Sofia® 2 analyzer and Sofia Lyme FIA test in the CLIA waived test environment in comparison to Comparator Method(s) and/or an FDA cleared predicate test(s) using matched finger-stick, whole blood and serum from symptomatic subjects.
This study will analyze cells from erythema migrans lesions, the "bull's eye" rash of Lyme disease. Little is known about what happens in the skin when it is infected with Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria that cause Lyme disease. This study will examine and compare laboratory findings in skin biopsies from people with Lyme disease and from healthy normal volunteers to try to better understand the infection. Healthy volunteers and people with untreated erythema migrans rash w...
Next Generation Sequencing is able to sequence all DNA detected in a sample, including short strands. This differs from PCR testing, which uses pre-determined DNA primers to detect a limited number of specific, often large, strands of DNA. We will test the ability of NGS to detect Borrelia burgdorferi DNA in the blood of pediatric patients with an erythema migrans rash. We plan to compare 20 patients with the EM rash (cases) to 10 healthy control patients (controls). We will co...
This study will evaluate Advanced Laboratory Services Borrelia diagnostic test by culturing Borrelia spirochetes from human serum in subjects with early or late Lyme disease. This is an 8 month study. Subjects entering the study will have two blood samples collected one month apart if they have early Lyme disease and one blood sample collected if they have late Lyme disease. Subjects who sign an IRB-approved consent form and meet the inclusion and exclusion criteria will be en...
The investigators will focus on pretreatment expectations of patients with early Lyme disease manifested as erythema migrans with the aim of assessing the association between pretreatment expectations quantified with a questionnaire and treatment outcome quantified with the presence of post-Lyme symptoms. Furthermore, the investigators will compare the prevalence of nonspecific symptoms among patients and among age-matched controls without a history of Lyme borreliosis.
The T2Lyme assay will be compared to Borrelia culture from erythema migrans (EM) biopsy and/or detection of the C6 antigen in serum collected prospectively from patients suspected of early Lyme disease.
The main purpose of this study is to see if a device known as Transcranial Direct Current Stimulator (tDCS) is helpful in reducing persistent symptoms after Lyme disease treatment. Some of these symptoms include problems with memory, fatigue or pain.
This is a large study of an educational program on Lyme disease prevention for passengers on ferry boats going to Nantucket Island during the period from Memorial Day until Labor Day. Some boats provide passengers with the experimental program and the other boats provide a "control" program that the researchers can compare to the experimental program. The experimental program uses live performances by entertainers to teach people about Lyme disease prevention, and also uses add...
The purpose of this study is to determine clinical course and the sequelae of early Lyme neuroborreliosis after treatment with ceftriaxone.
The current study is set up to chart clinically and laboratory findings in Norwegian patients with symptoms attributed by themselves or their doctor to ongoing chronic Bb infection. Objectives is to assess laboratory findings in relation to established diagnostic criteria and to form a picture of the burden of symptoms and illness perception in this group of patients. The study is essentially exploratory, and is supposed to raise rather than to test hypotheses.
The two-stage protocol is gold standard in terms of infection control treating prosthetic joint infections of total hip and total knee arthroplasty. The antibiotic pause for diagnostic reasons before reconstruction (stage two) is discussed concerning persistence of infection and development of resistant bacterial strains. Serological markers and synovial analysis are common use to exclude persistence of infection. The investigators therefore asked 1) is the serological testing...
This study will determine whether patients who have been infected with the Lyme bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi, and treated with antibiotics still have the bacteria alive inside them and whether it is causing their symptoms. The information from this study may serve as a basis for developing stringent diagnostic criteria for Lyme disease and the establishment of future treatment trials. Individuals in the following categories may be eligible for this study: chronic Lyme ...
The investigators will compare doxycycline and ceftriaxone in treatment of patients with suspected early Lyme neuroborreliosis and normal CSF cell count. The study hypothesis is that the efficacy and adverse effects of both antibiotics are comparable.
The purpose of this exploratory study is to determine the feasibility, acceptability, and efficacy of an exercise persistence intervention for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) following pulmonary rehabilitation (PR).
The purpose of the current study is to examine the effects of health-related internet use on affect, health anxiety and symptom severity in individuals with pathological levels of health anxiety. The present randomized controlled study compares an online medical searching condition with a waiting (i.e. non-searching) condition to manipulate the attentional focus. After an induction of health anxiety using the Autobiographical Emotional Memory Task the participants in the search...
This is a randomized, observer-blind, placebo controlled, multicenter Phase 2 study conducted in two study phases: a run-in phase and a main study phase. The study will investigate 3 doses of a multivalent OspA (Outer Surface Protein A)based Lyme vaccine (VLA15) in healthy adults aged 18 to 65 years of age. Study participants will receive 3 immunizations of the vaccine at a monthly interval. The study will assess the immune response as well as the safety profile of the vaccine.
The Zika infection is a viral disease that is transmitted to humans by the same mosquito that transmits Dengue and Chikungunya fever. The Zika virus has been found in various body fluids such as urine, blood and semen, but we do not know how long it persists in these fluids. For example, parts of the virus were reported to persist in semen after six months of the onset of symptoms, but we do not know if the virus can stay longer. In this way, we want to investigate how long the...
