STANFORD UNIVERSITY STUDY:
Immune Responses and Symptoms in Lyme Disease
Patients and Healthy Controls


Are you interested in participating in a research project at Stanford University researching Lyme disease?
 
You could be included in this important research if you:

• Have been diagnosed with Lyme disease

• Speak and read English

• Have never been homeless

• Since 2005 have not taken antibiotics every day for 2 consecutive years.

• Participants will have their blood drawn for diagnostic tests used for Lyme disease.

• Following this, they will complete questionnaires related to quality of life, demographics, distress, medical symptoms and treatment, coping and pain during a one-time 2 to 3 hour visit at Stanford University.

By participating in this study you will:

• Contribute valuable information that may benefit adults living 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.
