Mystery Solved: How Lyme Disease Bacteria Spread Around the Body

Thu Aug 25 14:14:41 EDT 2016 | Live Science
When you're bitten by a tick carrying the bacteria that cause Lyme disease, the microbes travel through your bloodstream and can eventually spread to the heart, joints and nervous system. But exactly how these bacteria move inside human blood vessels to spread throughout the body has remained largely a mystery, until now. A new study sheds light on the way these bacteria latch onto the inside of blood vessel walls and move inside the vessels while fighting the forces of flowing blood. The findin..
