Volunteers are being sought to donate blood to help evaluate a new genomic diagnostic being developed by Translational Genomics Institute.  Holly Ahern, Associate Professor of Microbiology at SUNY Adirondack and Science Adviser to the Focus on Lyme Foundation (a nonprofit genomics research organization affiliated with Northern Arizona University) will be coordinating this project.  You are invited to become a test subject if you are able to have your blood drawn.  Both healthy and not-so-healthy subjects are needed for this study.  Please consider volunteering if you fall into one of these broad categories:

  •    Healthy, no symptoms of illness.
  •    Not feeling great, but don’t know why.
  •    Might have a tick-borne disease (TBD), but not sure.
  •    Diagnosed with TBD.
  •    Previously treated for TBD and now healthy.
  •    Previously treated for TBD and experiencing continued symptoms.
  •    Previously treated with one or two doses of antibiotics to “prevent” Lyme.

Donated blood samples will be analyzed by a certified and licensed clinical laboratory using standard Lyme disease assays, followed by assay with the newly developed LymeSeq assay platform, a genomic based test for several tick-borne diseases. The clinical tests will take several months and therefore results will not be applicable to the diagnosis or treatment of tick-borne disease for participants.

Additional blood draw events are being scheduled for other locations.  More information will be forthcoming.  Please watch this space for details.
