New Lyme Disease Test

Millions of Americans will benefit from a new Lyme Disease Test being developed by Dr. Emanuel Petricoin at George Mason University. This new test uses the patient’s urine to see if they are positive for Lyme disease at a very early stage, which allows the patient to fight the disease early on. In clinical trials this test has achieved a sensitivity of virtually 100 percent for early stage Lyme disease and has shown a reversal from positive to negative, if the patient was successfully treated for the disease. Current test are inaccurate during the early onset of the disease.
