Recommendation ID

Core outcome set for studies of management of Lyme disease:- Can a core outcome set be developed for clinical trials of management of Lyme disease?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why this is important:- Antibiotic treatment is the mainstay of management for Lyme disease. The studies published on the management of Lyme disease use differing outcomes, which are often poorly defined. The development of a core outcome set has been identified as a high priority because it would allow comparison across trials and allow appropriate meta-analysis to strengthen results. The methods used should be patient-focused and include patient input on priority outcomes and how they should be measured.
