Beating Lyme disease, tickedy spit.

Researchers at Yale are using a different approach to developing a vaccine for Lyme disease. Instead of trying to base it on the DNA of the bacteria, they are using the DNA from tick saliva, on the theory that if the tick is immune to the Lyme disease it carries, that immunity can be incorporated into the vaccine.
