ILADS adds another milestone to a long list of accomplishments in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme and its co-infections.  By the 1980’s, doctors were increasingly concerned with the growing numbers of Lyme disease patients with chronic manifestations.  A number of these doctors formed the International Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS) a nonprofit, international, multidisciplinary medical society dedicated to advance for the standard of care for these conditions.

ILADS continues to offer cutting edge, smart professional conferences and courses in the US and abroad to advance the standard of care. A chronic disease paradigm has emerged that is supported by animal models and pathophysiologic evidence.

ILADS has twice published evidence-based guidelines in 2004 and 2014 to elucidate the foundations of the chronic disease paradigm.  Both guidelines have been listed in the National Guideline Clearinghouse to allow physicians to understand the chronic disease paradigm.

ILADS expects the upcoming professional conference in Ft. Lauderdale will continue to advance our collective understanding of Lyme and its associated diseases.

Please plan on joining us.

Thank you.
