Additional Study Information:

This long-term goal of this study is to reduce the number of patients who develop symptoms of chronic Lyme disease (also known as Post-treatment Lyme Syndrome) by identifying better tests and by understanding the immunologic, rheumatologic, and neurologic impact of this illness over time. This can only be done by comparing those patients who recover fully to those who experience ongoing symptoms, as well as to healthy controls. Healthy participants complete two visits to our center. The first visit is to verify good health, and includes blood and urine testing, a physical exam, and an intake interview (1.5 hours). If determined to be eligible during the first visit, participants complete the second visit, which includes sensory testing, neurocognitive testing, and questionnaires (2.5 hours). Participants are then compensated between $65-75. Participants are also invited to complete two follow-up questionnaires six weeks later and six months later (no in-person visits required), for which we compensate $20 each.
