    What a mess. They abbreviate Lyme Disease as "LD", then only use LA after that. Presumably they mean it to be Lyme Arthritis, but it looks like no one has proof-read it, much less reviewed the article.
     
    Izola and Kina like this.

    Well, Lyme Arthritis is Lyme Disease for some people.

    It would have been good if they had included a non-Lyme arthritis group, which is why I said ┬┤potential┬┤ and added a question mark.

    I was confused, as well about the switching of abbreviations.

    It would be great if there was a definitive biomarker. My question would be if you would find this same marker before lyme induced arthritis set in.

    So maybe a third control group of those with lyme at different stages?
