Researchers at University of California, Berkeley have been doing a lot of bird watching lately to help understand the spread of infectious disease. In a recent study they found that Lyme disease, which many believe is spread by rodents and small mammals, is in fact regularly transmitted by several species of birds as well.
Clinical trials were recently conducted and proved promising for a Lyme Disease vaccine developed by science researchers at Stony Brook University. The vaccine proved to produce a large number of antibodies against all targeted species of Borrelia, which causes Lyme Disease in Europe and the United States. Baxter International S.A., who worked with Stony Brook University researchers to develop the vaccine, conducted the clinical trials.
