Borrelia is the cause of Lyme disease, and according to studies, vaccinating mice can reduce the incidence of infection. Let us go into the details.
A Preview-Lyme disease: Lyme disease is a vector-borne infection (common vectors being white-tailed deer, and other small mammals) caused by spirochete (Borrelia burgdorferi), which is transmitted to humans by bites of ticks belonging to Ixodes. Clinical manifestations may be both cutaneous and systemic, affecting the cardiovascular system, neurological and/or musculoskeletal system. Diagnosis of the disease is a challenge, and is often confirmed by Western Blot and ELISA Test. Managing the Lyme disease is also difficult and judicious use of antibiotics such as (doxycycline, and cephalosporins) is suggested by the guidelines. Avoiding the vectors is the best preventive strategy for Lyme disease. Treating Lyme disease with antibiotics relieves the symptoms and prevents sequelae. In nearly all the cases, antibiotics can treat Lyme disease, even in later stages.
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is associated with an increase in the risk of low bone density due to Vitamin-D deficiency. Age, certain disease conditions and incorrect nutritional status can lead to loss of minerals from the bone, causing a decline in the bone density, making them fragile and weak. This increases the risk of fracture in such patients. The link between vitamin-D deficiency and low bone density due to IBD, (including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease) was studied by researchers of Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, TX. The lead author of the study was Bincy P. Abraham, MD.

Second is the nervous and heart system involvement, including meningitis and nerve palsies. The third one is the disease that features sensory and motor brain inflammation, nerve damage, and arthritis.
