Stanford University is looking for chronic Lyme patients for a study that is partially funded by the California Lyme Disease Association. Information about the study (below) is reproduced from a Stanford University flyer, posted June 30 on the CLDA site ( www.lymedisease.org).

The trial involves a one-time 2-3 hour visit at Stanford to fill out a questionnaire and submit a blood sample, and permission to review your medical record.

You could be included in this important research if you:

• Have been diagnosed with Lyme disease

inherently limits to those close by geographically, or have the extra money to spend to travel in order to participate. Sort of a shame, but something is better than nothing.
