People contract Lyme disease each year in the United States
The CDC currently recommends a two-step testing process to diagnose Lyme disease. This test detects antibodies which can take several weeks to develop in the body. If you are bitten by a tick, there is at least a 4 – 6 week waiting period before you can be tested for Lyme disease. Hopefully, your body will develop antibodies for testing. If it does not, the test may be negative even though you may be infected. There is a vital need for a diagnostic that does not rely on antibodies to detect disease.
You can help advance a Lyme disease diagnostic test with increased sensitivity and specificity than the standard serological tests available today.
