Abstract:Lyme borreliosis continues to be a significant public health problem. Because of good public education, the incidence of Lyme arthritis and other late-stage symptoms has not increased in tandem with the increases in early infection. There have been major advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis of Lyme arthritis. The understanding of mechanisms of arthritis in Lyme borreliosis may also shed light on the mechanisms of disease in other infectious and noninfectious arthritides.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
