Although focused in the northeastern United States, Lyme disease has expanded geographically over the past few decades, with a >320% increase in the number of high-incidence counties and reported cases in 49 states.
Amesh A. Adalja, MD, FIDSA argues that a bill being considered in the Pennsylvania state legislature will ultimately result in increased antibiotic resistance and will set back the clock for finding appropriate treatments for Lyme disease.
The new test can differentiate between Lyme disease and 7 other tick-borne diseases.
