Some patients treated for Lyme disease continue to suffer neurological symptoms. In these patients compared to healthy controls, there was increased interferon-α (IFNα) activity observed in the blood. IFNα is a cytokine, or chemical messenger, and together with the observation of elevated antibodies against B. burgdorferi and neural proteins, suggests an ongoing inflammatory response in these patients.
