A Letter from our President

ILADS is proud to announce new Guidelines for the treatment of Lyme Disease. These Guidelines broaden the scope of treatment and re-treatment and will greatly enhance the care of patients suffering from Lyme and persistent Lyme. The new Guidelines call for therapies to be guided by clinical response rather than a predetermined response and view laboratory testing as a contribution to the physicians’ judgment. Please read the full text below. We congratulate the authors of this work and all in the Lyme community who have made this momentous achievement possible.
