Dr. Alaedini’s research has shown that individuals suffering from chronic Lyme have specific antibodies that bind to a protein called VlsE, which is found on the surface of B. burgdorferi, the bacterium that causes Lyme disease. He found that chronic Lyme patients have a greater variety of VlsE antibodies than patients who were successfully treated. He will determine whether these antibodies are also in patients who are infected with different strains of Borrelia burgdorferi, in order to develop a more comprehensive test.
