Update: Lyme Disease
Lyme disease is probably the most common tick-borne illness in the U.S., and the best understood. It's a regional disease, very common in some areas, vanishingly rare in others for reasons that aren't yet clear. There are about 35,000 cases reported yearly in the U.S., but this likely underestimates the true incidence as many people either don't seek help or are not properly diagnosed.

Single tick bite can pack double pathogen punch
People who get bitten by a blacklegged tick have a higher-than-expected chance of being exposed to more than one pathogen at the same time. "We found that ticks are almost twice as likely to be infected with two pathogens -- the bacterium that causes Lyme disease and the protozoan that causes babesiosis -- than we would have expected," said a professor of biology involved in a recent study.

Lyme disease is a stealthy, often misdiagnosed disease that was only recognized about 40 years ago, but new discoveries of ticks fossilized in amber show that the bacteria which cause it may have been lurking around for 15 million years -- long before any humans walked on Earth. The findings were made by researchers who studied 15-20 million-year-old amber from the Dominican Republic that offer the oldest fossil evidence ever found of Borrelia, a type of spirochete-like bacteria that to this day causes Lyme disease.

What Causes Leg Pain?
Discussion “Growing pains” of the legs are a common complaint in children. Heterogeneous studies from 1928-2004 have found prevalence rates of 2.6-49.4% in children ages 4-19. The studies are heterogeneous because of time, location, and especially definition of growing pains. A study of 1445, 4-6 year olds in 2004 using a validated tool showed a prevalence rate of 36.9%. The definition of growing pains used by Peterson in the 2004 study is chronic “…intermittent (nonarticular) pains in both legs that generally occur late in the day or at night…” with a normal physical examination and ...

Study Finds Obesity Can Have Negative Effect On Young Breast Cancer Patients
BOSTON (CBS) — A new study says obesity can have a negative effect on young breast cancer patients. Karen Hackett has shed 30 pounds since being diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago. “I’ve made exercise become a priority,” she says. “It’s just part of my day. I try to go sometime around the lunchtime hour and if I don’t, I can go in the evening.” A new study finds obesity leads to poorer outcomes for women like Hackett who were pre- or peri-menopausal when they were diagnosed with hormone-sensitive breast cancer. “That’s the novel finding here, we used to th...

Harsh Winter Does Little To Ease Lyme Disease Woes
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — The harsh winter did nothing to cull the nationwide tick population, and health officials are primed for a warm season that could see the number of Lyme disease cases rise. In northern New England, the increase in cases of Lyme correlates with a growing population of deer ticks, which transmit the disease, state epidemiologist Stephen Sears said. In Maine and elsewhere, heavy snow acted as an insulating blanket that protected ticks from winter’s cold, state entomologist Charlene Donahue said. Nationwide, the number of cases of Lyme disease has held relatively steady over the past few year...

NEW HAVEN, Connecticut (CBS) – A new study by Yale researchers suggests that a tick-borne infection similar to Lyme disease has become common in southern New England.

The prevalence of Lyme disease is about 10 percent. “We expect this to be found wherever Lyme disease is found.

BOSTON (CBS) — Shoulder pain is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor and rotator cuff injuries are one of the most common causes of shoulder pain.

The therapy involves administering sound wave pulses on the outside of the body. It has been used for years to break up “kidney stones” and now doctors in Europe are using it to treat rotator cuff tendonitis. “We found that high energy shock wave therapy is very useful f...
