The latest issue of The Lyme Report goes out to subscribers tomorrow and its focus is on human granulocytic anaplasmosis, Colorado tick fever and lone star ticks. In tomorrow’s issue, subscribers will find:
FEATURE: Whenever the topic of Lyme disease co-infections comes up, by far the most discussed pathogens are babesia, bartonella, and Borrelia miyamotoi. However, it’s becoming increasingly clear that Anaplasma phagocytophilum is quickly overtaking the other three as a public health concern in this country. Tomorrow’s feature will explain what anaplasma is, where it’s found in Canada, and why it is suddenly causing concern amongst public health researchers.
ANALYSIS: Speaking of tick-borne illnesses that deserve more attention, I’ll be analyzing a study highlighting a case of Colorado tick fever that cropped up rather unexpectedly in Manitoba in 2017.
ANALYSIS: I’ll also be breaking down a recent paper that predicts when and where lone star ticks will be expanding into Canada. There are some surprises in this paper that I go into in some detail.
NEWS BRIEFS: A Lyme disease conference held in Nova Scotia in November drew hundreds of participants, a blacklegged tick expert discusses why we can’t let our guard down this time of year, and The Lyme Report goes to Belleville, ON.
