Research Study: Lyme Disease Test

Now open in Macon and Savannah, GA; Baton Rouge, LA; Rockville, MD; Omaha and Norfolk, NE; Binghamton and Endwell, NY; and Dakota Dunes, SD

There are an estimated 300,000 cases of Lyme disease in the U.S. each year. Up to 30% people do not present the bullseye rash associated with Lyme disease passed by infected ticks. Untreated, Lyme disease can lead to chronic joint inflammation, neurological symptoms, and more. Meridian is conducting a research study for an investigational test intended to help detect Lyme disease.
