Abstract

Lyme disease is the result of an infection, caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi bacterium, which is common in ticks; people can develop Lyme disease after being bitten by an infected tick. This evidence review focuses on treatment for Lyme disease. Its aim is to bring together evidence from patients, clinicians and researchers about their experiences of receiving, delivering or evaluating interventions for Lyme disease in order to identify factors that might impact on successful treatment.
