"The unfortunate fact of Lyme disease is that more than twenty years later medical science has not developed any significant breakthroughs in either diagnosis of or the treatment of this disease. Despite all of what we have learned about Borrelia burgdorferi, our diagnostic tests are still poor, and our treatment regimens are for the most part unchanged for the last two decades." (Tom Grier, What Lyme Disease Research Needs To Be Done And Why.)
