FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Lyme Disease Association/Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons Conference
Nov. 14 to Feature New Research on Genomes of Lyme Bacteria
How Lyme Bacteria Cause Dementia Studied
NY Times Bestselling Author Amy Tan to speak on LymeAid4Kids Fund

Philadelphia PA, October 31, 2003-Open to physicians and the public, the LDA/Columbia Conference offering 8.5 continuing medical education credits (CME's) for physicians will feature new research in the area of the genomic mapping of borrelia burgdorferi. Mapping genomes and identifying proteins can provide researchers with the key to unlocking how some of the borrelia bacteria are able to produce Lyme disease while others do not and can provide data for future vaccine development.

Work which provides insight into how Lyme disease in the brain causes dementia will be showcased, as well as cutting edge studies on biofilms and their potential medical implications, presented by one of the world's leading experts on the topic. In addition, traditional presentations on Lyme disease including testing, treatment, an assessment of treating drugs, and psychiatric, neurologic, gastrointestinal, and pituitary involvement will be made by noted physicians and researchers. Other tick-borne diseases will also be on the agenda.

Internationally acclaimed author Amy Tan will also appear and speak about LymeAid4 Kids, a fund established by LDA for children whose families cannot afford to have their children evaluated for suspected Lyme disease. Ms. Tan is supporting the fund.

The conference will be held on Friday, November 14, at the Hyatt, Pennís Landing, Philadelphia. Details and registration forms can be found on www.LymeDiseaseAssociation.org or email Lymeliter@aol.com. Other questions about conference can be left on 732 938-4834

International Lyme & Associated Diseases Society (ILADS), a professional medical society, conference on the clinical aspects of Lyme disease will follow Nov 14 and 15 at the Hyatt and is open for members and non-member health care professionals. Details on www.ILADS.org.
