Abstract

Lyme disease results from persistent infection with the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi. A combination of bacterial factors and host factors contributes to the development of inflammatory disease. Studies from the past year have provided insight into both sides of this host-pathogen interplay. We now have a better appreciation of the bacterial genes and products that are involved in pathology and the components of the host response that participate in disease development.
