"Tick Tactics" -- The Discovery Files
Scientists at the University of Cincinnati say the hungrier ticks are, the harder they try to find people or other hosts -- a finding that could have implications for the spread of tick-borne diseases such as Lyme or Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. The researchers explain that starved ticks' metabolisms speed up, causing them to hunt more aggressively. (Source: The Discovery Files)

" Turning the Phage " -- The Discovery Files
The virus called a bacteriophage, found in Dodge Pond in East Lyme, attacks a common multi-drug resistant bacterial pathogen called Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which can lethally infect people with compromised immune systems. In a neat evolutionary trick, the virus attaches to the cell membrane where bacteria pump out antibiotics, a system that had originally evolved to resist antibiotics. The presence of the virus in turn leads to evolutionary changes in the bacterial membrane that makes this pumping mechanism less efficient. This makes bacteria once more susceptible to existing antibiotics. (Source: The Discovery Files)

The Discovery of Lyme Disease with Dr Allen Steere
Dr Allen Steere discovered Lyme disease and discusses what he saw and did when confronted early in his career with a previously undescribed disease. Late stage disease, a form not commonly seen today, is discussed in detail since that is how the disease presented before its cause was determined.
