2017 Annual Scientific Conference: What Clinicians Need to Know about an Expanding Epidemic

2017 Conference speakersLooking for the real facts on Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases− what’s happening with coinfections such as Powassan, B. miyamotoi and with Bartonella? Why do Lyme patients often have low blood pressure–how does Lyme affect the heart, breathing, and digestive process when the autonomic nervous system is disrupted? How does inflammation from Lyme affect the brain and how can it be treated? Biofilms and persisters, what are they and are they causing chronic Lyme disease?

The Lyme Disease Association (LDA) & Columbia University’s 18th annual, conference, Lyme & Other Tick-Borne Diseases: What Clinicians Need to Know about an Expanding Epidemic was held at the Hilton Penns Landing on the banks of the Delaware River, in Philadelphia, PA, on Sept. 23 & 24, 2017. 

The conference is designed for physicians and researchers but the public was invited to register and all registrants could attend a reception and network with the conference faculty. Medical students/post docs were encouraged to apply for scholarships. CME credits were offered by Columbia University to CME-registered physician attendees. The conference featured 20 faculty consisting of clinicians and researchers from across the US and one from Canada.

The conference lectures detailed very current research that could alter the field. The Keynote speaker, Nicole Baumgarth, UC Davis, discussed Bb outmaneuvering the adaptive immune system. Other faculty included Garth Erlich, Drexel, Pan-Diagnostics for Lyme & Co-Infections; Eva Sapi UNH, Lyme & biofilms; Ying Zhang, Johns Hopkins, persisters & Lyme; John Aucott, immune biomarkers & Lyme; Sheila Arvikar, Mass Gen Hospital, autoimmune disorders following Lyme; Brian Fallon, Columbia, also Conference Director, Why Do Symptoms Persist?; Robert Bransfield, Rutgers-RWJ, inflammation & neuro Lyme; Diego Cadavid, Harvard/Biogen, treatment of neuro Lyme.

More speakers: Saravanan Thangamani, University of Texas Medical Branch, Powassan; Travis Taylor, University of Toledo, Powassan/Tick-Borne Flavivirus; Sam Telford, Tufts who discusses Babesia microti, duncani, & B. miyamotoi; Ed Breitschwerdt, NCSU, Bartonella; Maya Jeraf, UNC, Alpha-gal meat allergy; Monica Embers, Tulane, next generation diagnostics; Safwan Jaradeh, Stanford, autonomic dysfunction & Lyme; Adrian Baranchuk, Queen’s University, Lyme Carditis and High Degree AV Block; Ahmet Z. Burakgazi, Virginia Tech, optic neuritis and probable Lyme; Christopher D. Paddock, CDC, Rickettsial Zoonoses Branch, Rickettsioses in the U.S.; Lorraine Johnson, LymeDisease.org, big data on Lyme research priorities; and a panel discussion of chronic Lyme. Poster presenters also presented their studies and were available to answer questions.

This was followed by a talk by Dr. Judith Miklossy, International Alzheimer Research Center, reviewing evidence suggesting a link between spirochetal infection and Alzheimer’s Disease. The newest breakthrough in the combination of novel biotechnologies (proteomics and nanotechnology) for improved Lyme diagnostics has led to the nanotrap; results from an initial study will be presented by Dr. Alessandra Luchini from George Mason University. A new species of Borrelia was recently discovered to cause Lyme in the US; this will be discussed by Dr. Bobbi Pritt from the Mayo Clinic. Dr. Ying Zhang from Johns Hopkins discussed new in vitro antimicrobial strategies to eradicate “Borrelia persisters”, that offer promise for more effective interventions for human Lyme disease. Dr. John Aucott from Johns Hopkins Medical Center presented new findings regarding the human immune response in Lyme disease.

In the area of prevention, the latest on a novel mouse vaccine was discussed by Dr. Steve Zatechka, US BIOLOGIC. Work so new it is generating discussions from scientists around the world on the impact it might have on ecology in general was presented by Dr. Kevin Esvelt, from MIT Sculpting Evolution Lab, his talk addressed Community-Guided Ecological Immunization to Prevent Tick-Borne Disease using CRISPR technology.

Other talks discussed diagnosing neurologic Lyme disease by Dr. Patricia Coyle, Stony Brook; acute and chronic neuropsychiatric disease by Dr. Brian Fallon, Columbia; a cardiac Lyme case by Dr. Betty Maloney, Partnership for Tick-Borne Diseases Education, a Lyme CME Provider; a review of clinical trials of Lyme Disease by Internist/epidemiologist Dr. Daniel Cameron; isolation of spirochetes from patients in the Southern U.S. by Dr. Kerry Clark, University of N. Florida; diagnosis and treatment of pediatric Lyme arthritis by Dr. Lise Nigrovic, Boston Children’s Hospital; controlling the inflammatory response in the mouse model of Lyme arthritis by Southern Research Institute’s Dr. Timothy Sellati; studies of viruses in ticks by Dr. Rafal Tokarz of Columbia University; clinical review of other TBDs such as Tularemia by Nantucket clinician Dr.Timothy Lepore, Bartonella by Dr. Marna Ericson of University of Minnesota, and Babesia in the blood supply by Dr. Evan Bloch of Johns Hopkins. Finally, the conference concluded with a public health talk on the spread of Lyme disease vector into the United States by the CDC’s Dr. Ben Beard.
