The SUNY Upstate Institute for Global Health is recruiting volunteers for a clinical research study they are conducting on Lyme disease.

Lyme disease can be unpleasant. It can cause fatigue, fever, joint pain, and other flu-like symptoms, as well as a rash. If you’re experiencing any of these common symptoms of Lyme disease following a tick bite, you should see a doctor. You could also consider the Institute’s clinical research study.

We’re looking for men and women who have suspected Lyme disease following a tick bite, and who want to join others to help find out more about this condition. The clinical research study may be an option for you if:

  • you are at least 18 years old
  • you have suspected Lyme disease
  • you have NOT previously had a Lyme disease vaccination
  • you have received ongoing antimicrobial treatment for only two days or less

Other requirements apply. The study doctor will explain these to you.

To find out if this clinical research study is right for you, please contact the Institute directly via email at or phone at (315) 464-9869.

Please download and share the flyer with your family, friends and neighbors to help us recruit volunteers!
