LYME DISEASE – In the early 1970s, a mysterious clustering of arthritis cases occurred among children in Lyme, Connecticut, and surrounding towns. Medical experts soon recognized the illness as a distinct disease, which they called Lyme disease. They subsequently described the signs and symptoms of Lyme disease, established the usefulness of antibiotics for treating it, identified the deer tick as the key to its spread, and isolated the bacterium that caused it.
This thoroughly researched collection presents vital information from many authoritative sources: Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Contents include clinical and medical Information, with information on risk groups, signs, symptoms, testing, diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and clinical trials.
In addition to the comprehensive disease-specific coverage, as a bonus we have included an encyclopedic collection of general medical and health documents, with extensive material from the CDC, FDA, and NIH on hundreds of diseases. Since navigating the Internet to find additional non-governmental medical information can be confusing, we’ve also provided our exclusive “Guide to Leading Medical Websites” with updated links to 73 of the best sites for medical information! By using weblinks on the CD-ROM, you can quickly check for the latest clinical updates directly from the government.
