Although this website deals primarily with the results of evidence-based research on Lyme disease, we simply do not have the resources to present the results of current research on the other tick-borne diseases listed above. We refer the reader to the CDC’s website (www.cdc.gov) where, by means of their alphabetical search mechanism, one can obtain relevant and recently updated information on each of these other diseases.
