Poor Positive Predictive Value of Lyme Disease Serologic Testing in an Area of Low Disease Incidence

Conclusions. In this low-prevalence cohort, fewer than 20% of positive Lyme disease tests are obtained from patients with clinically likely Lyme disease. Positive Lyme disease test results may have little diagnostic value in this setting.

Conclusion: We applied a microsimulation approach to estimate the costs of salmonellosis and its sequelae in Queensland during 2016–2036 under baseline conditions and according to climate change projections. This novel application of microsimulation models demonstrates the models’ potential utility to researchers for examining complex interactions between weather and disease to estimate future costs. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1370 Received: 14 November 2016 Revised: 8 November 2017 Accepted: 8 November 2017 Published: 11 December 2017 Address correspondence to D.

SetPoint Medical said today it won FDA investigational device exemption clearance to launch a trial of its proprietary bioelectronic device designed to treat patients with drug refractory rheumatoid arthritis. The device is designed to be surgically placed on the vagus nerve to activate the body’s natural inflammatory reflex, the Valencia, Calif.-based company said. “We are ready to build on the published positive data from our earlier first-in-human proof-of-concept study of bioelectronic therapy in RA, which significantly improved measures of RA disease activity in this difficult-to-treat patient po...
