Lyme Vaccine?

Lyme Vaccine?





A Lyme disease vaccination called LYMErix (SmithKline Beecham) was available for people in high-risk areas. The key ingredient in LYMErix was a genetically engineered protein from the surface of the bacteria B. Burgdorferi that helps stimulate an immune response against the bacteria. The protein, called OspA, stimulates antibodies that disable B. burgdorferi bacteria's ability to infect people. However, OspA triggers autoimmune responses (some life threatening) and arthritis in some individuals. Consequently, LYMErix was removed from the market in 2002.
