Help find a cure for Lyme disease.
MYLYMEDATA – LYME DISEASE RESEARCH.
MyLymeData is a patient-powered Lyme disease research project. It was conceived by patients, is run by patients, and addresses the issues that patients care about. It lets Lyme disease patients learn from each other and provides data that can help drive Lyme disease research to improve their lives.
What is MyLymeData & Why Is It Important?
MyLymeData – Lyme Disease Research
MyLymeData is LymeDisease.org’s new Lyme disease research project that tracks patient progress over time. It allows patients to use today’s computer technology to quickly and privately pool diagnosis and treatment experiences. When large amounts of data are combined, we can see patterns that help us determine which treatments work best. Add your Lyme data to MyLymeData to help find a cure for Lyme disease
Help Us Advance Science.
We’re looking for patients who have been diagnosed with Lyme disease In the United States initially. Over time we expect to roll this out to different countries, so register and ask us to send you a notice when we launch MyLymeData in your country. You can also place your pin on the world wide map to show where you were bit. We are interested in patients who are sick and those who are well, it includes both children and adults. Join the study. Become part of this new Lyme disease research project by províding your vital piece. When people are sick, they may feel they can’t even help themselves, let alone help anyone else. This is something any patient can do.

MyLymeData lets you determine who you want to share information with and what it can be used for. Your data may only be used for research that is patient-centered. You can change your privacy settings at any time. This puts control over privacy right where it belongs—with you. Data is stored securely offsite using encryption.
Big data can change everything.
MyLymeData expects to gather more data about Lyme disease than any research study has done before. Consider this: The largest Lyme disease trial funded by the National Institute of Health enrolled only 64 patients in the treatment group. Our patient surveys draw over 9,000 responses! We’ll use the information provided by patients to help figure out how to prevent and treat all stages of Lyme disease. It’s that simple.
How it works.
Patients with Lyme disease tell us about their experience, symptoms, treatments, and results. Periodically, they update their information to let us know what has changed. This allows us to better understand the progression of the disease and what works—and doesn’t work—to help people get better. It lets patients learn from each other and provides data that can drive research to improve patients’ lives.
