|Brief Title||Evaluation, Treatment, and Follow-up of Patients With Lyme Disease|
|Official Title||Evaluation, Treatment and Follow up of Patients With Lyme Disease|
This study is designed to establish a population of patients with Lyme disease for evaluation, treatment and follow-up to learn more about the infection.
Patients with active Lyme disease may be eligible for this study.
Participants will have a medical history and physical examination and diagnostic evaluations as appropriate to their individual condition. Laboratory tests may include routing blood and urine tests, X-rays, or other imaging studies, body fluid or tissue cultures, skin biopsy and tests for allergic or immune responses. Treatment will include only medications approved by the Food and Drug Administration, given according to accepted dose schedules and ways of taking the medicines. All diagnostic tests and treatments will be according to standard medical practice for the disease. No experimental procedures will be offered under this protocol.
Patients will be followed as needed for evaluation and treatment of their condition. In general, they will be asked to return at the end of therapy, then 3, 6 and 12 months later, and then every 6 to 12 months. More frequent visits may be required or less frequent visits may be allowed, depending on the individual s condition.
Participants may be asked to undergo the following additional procedures for research purposes:
|Detailed Description||Lyme disease is a multisystem illness caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi and it is the most common vector-borne illness in the United States. This protocol is designed to offer evaluation, therapy and follow up to patients with Lyme disease. This is a natural history study, which has the objective of developing a rigorously defined population of patients with Lyme disease to serve as the basis of research in multiple aspects of the infection. These research sub-projects have emphasis in exploring the biological markers of Borrelia infections, assessment of clinical course and outcomes of patients with Lyme infection, and the immunological response to B. burgdorferi infection.|
