Atteinte de la maladie de Lyme (neuroborréliose chronique) non-diagnostiqué au Canada (ELISA négatif, IgeneX positif) et de plusieurs co-infections (Babesia, Bartonella et Ehrlichia), je crois que mon expérience en tant que patiente pourrait bénéficier à vos recherches. Ayant vu plusieurs spécialistes depuis 2010, nos objectif (moi-même, mon conjoint, nos enfants) sont de collaborer comme patients avec les équipes de recherches pour évaluer les tests de diagnostic clinique existants et explorer de nouveaux outils et rechercher les modes de transmissions (in utero, relations sexuelles, transfusion de sang).

I’ve studied evolution & phlyogenomics for 20+ yrs. Since 2016, I’ve worked with K. Rochon (U Manitoba Dept Entomology) to characterize tick microbiomes infected with Borrelia, Anaplasma, & Babesia to understand combinatorial effects. I could make important contributions to (1) identification & characterization of strains (necessary to determine impact of variation on diagnosis & treatment), (2) research on prevalence, co-infection & modes of transmission. My father, my wife, & I’ve had Lyme.

Atteinte de la maladie de Lyme non-diagnostiqué mais positive à une co-infection (B. Henselae), je crois que mon expérience de patiente pourrait bénéficier à vos recherches. Ayant vu plusieurs spécialistes depuis 2013, je consacre dorénavant ma vie à comprendre l’évolution de la maladie, ses co-infections, le diagnostic et les traitements. Mon objectif est de collaborer comme patiente avec les équipes de recherches à l’avancée des connaissances sur la maladie de Lyme ainsi que les co-infections.

En tant que victime de la maladie de Lyme chronique depuis maintenant plus de 13 ans, ayant déjà rassemblé une majeure partie de mes différents dossiers médicaux, ayant vu l'érythème migrant, étant capable de dater la contamination, ayant moi même accès à une grande quantité de lymies pour me référer, je crois que mon aide en serait une d'expérience de la maladie, de ses symptômes et ses maux.
