Controlling and Preventing the Disease of Lyme

Recommend to others!

Lyme, a disease accepted through vectors, is reported to be a common disease having most of its cases in Northeastern region of United States. The breeding agents, the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi, of lyme and its ticks have been detected nearly three decades ago which spreading over this region gradually since then.

A renowned Journal of Medical Entomology is going to publish a fresh article on the prevention and control of Lyme disease, written by the writers of Colorado State University and the Centers for Disease Control under the title of “What Do We Need to Know About Disease Ecology to Prevent Lyme Disease in the Northeastern United States?” in which they discussed the probable causes that lead to the failure of all the efforts done to prevent and control the disease of Lyme in this region of US alongwith their identification to the conceptual fields which can help you in identifying the process to make improved strategies to prevent and control Lyme.

Some of the identified conceptual fields


  • Recognizing the areas that attract large number of dangerous bacterias to preserve the rate of transmission of B. burgdorferi
  • Getting the knowledge of controlling the environmental changes and disintegration of forest born bacterias which may effect on the dangers of being exposed to B. burgdorferi as well as to enable it to lessen the risk through intervention
  • Calculating the resultants of the epidemic interventions that aim on the vertebrate reservoirs or ticks
  • Rectifying the knowledge as how to control the mankind’s behavior that can effect the risk of Lyme disease and acknowledging the restrains that reduces the efforts for personal protection and managing the environment accordingly.

The prevailing strategies used to prevent and control the disease of Lyme and the measures targeting to the reduction of man’s contact with B. burgdorferi and vector ticks are discussed elaborately in above said article. They have also discussed the main perceptive fields that are needed to be enhanced with the knowledge of maintaining the human-tick interface or enzootic transmission cycle to take more effective steps to control and prevent Lyme disease strategically and implementing the existing measures alongwith it.

This all strategic involvements are needed to control the human behavior towards the exposure to both, the pathogen and the tick, which may increase the risk of exposure to B. burgdorferi infected ticks. The writers of the article are also stressing on the increase of the knowledge to prevent and control the disease beside controlling the human behavior.
