TOUCHED BY LYME: Important journal articles you won’t want to miss
I’d like to draw your attention to a treasure trove of recently published journal articles about Lyme disease and related illnesses.
Healthcare is an international, peer-reviewed, online scientific journal. It’s also open access, which mean anybody can read it for free.
(Some journals put their articles behind hefty paywalls, making them largely inaccessible to the Lyme patient community.)
Healthcare’s special issue on Lyme Disease and Related Tick-borne Infections includes such diverse topics as a new test for tick-borne relapsing fever, Lyme-related psychiatric illness, and problems faced by families with Lyme disease.
You can read them online or download individual ones for future reference.
