    Biography

      One of Dr. Dattwyler's research group's aims is the development of new diagnostic tests for infectious diseases, including Lyme disease. The goal is to provide assays that are more sensitive and specific then current assays, especial in early Lyme disease. Timely diagnosis enables prompt treatment leading to better patient outcomes.



      The research, both clinical and translational, bridges the gap between basic science research and clinical medicine. With funding from the NIH, Dr. Dattwyler's group is working to develop new diagnostic tests for a number of infectious diseases. The new Lyme tests in development are designed to fill the gaps that exist in testing today, moving away from the cumbersome Western blot technology to a more accurate, more user friendly test technology.


    Abstract

    Date:  May 13, 2021

    Time: 11:00am PDT

     

    Dr. Dattwyler will share his extensive experience on the clinical diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease including a brief history of Lyme Disease and how serological testing has evolved. He will discuss both the Standard Two-Tier Testing (STTT) and Modified Two-Tier Testing (MTTT) algorithms and the impact the new assays have on Lyme diagnosis and treatment. Finally, Dr. Dattwyler will comment on future directions in Lyme testing including what is required to improve diagnostic tools from a research perspective as we move forward.

     

    Learning Objectives

    • History of Lyme Disease and serological testing
    • Origin of the Lyme Standard Two-Tier Testing algorithm
    • Lyme Modified Two-Tier Testing and impact to Lyme Disease outcomes (Dx and Treatment)
    • Overview of current and future research needs for Lyme Disease Testing

     

     

    Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
