Complex pathogens call for sophisticated and rigorous research. The greatest hope for progress in diagnosing and treating difficult diseases like Lyme borreliosis lies with scientists with the equipment, skill and imagination to push the boundaries of knowledge. Congratulations to Sapi et al. Their contribution to research into borrelia, surely keeps the USA at the forefront of this important and challenging field.
