A team of researchers and microbiologists from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) are trying to develop blood test for an early detection of tick-borne Lyme disease infection. CDC researcher & microbiologist Claudia Molins said the test would use a "signature" of molecular patterns in the a person’s blood to help identify the Lyme infection by differentiating it from another tick-borne infection known as Southern Tick-Associated Rash Illness (…
