The US House committee on 21st centurycures passed a bill today that requires HHS to conduct or support epidemologic, basic, translational and other other clinical research regarding Lyme and other tick borne disease. It also requires establishing a permanent working group called the Intra-agency Lyme and tick borne disease working group and specifies who should be part of the committee, which is to includes physician experts, researches, patients and others. OK, kind of sounds like CFSAC for Lyme and tick borne disease. But maybe it will be more effective than CFSAC Anyway, I posted on this here today. The direct link to the bill is here.
