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 interventions for preventing Lyme disease. The aim is to determine the types of evaluated interventions, their effectiveness and their applicability to the UK.
