New pathogen linked to Lyme disease

Animal Health SmartBrief | Feb 09, 2016

A novel bacteria named Borrelia mayonii causes Lyme disease, according to new research. Testing isolated the bacteria from two patients as well as in 3% of ticks collected from Wisconsin and tested. B. mayonii is genetically distinct from B. burgdorferi, previously the only pathogen known to cause Lyme disease. The novel pathogen is associated with Lyme disease symptoms but not the classic bull's-eye rash. FoxNews.com (02/08) National Public Radio (02/09)
