ILADS is an acronym for International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society. It is a non-profit medical society dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme and its associated diseases.

10-20% of patients who are diagnosed with early stage Lyme disease don't recover after antibiotic therapy. This amount is even higher (30% or more) for patients who are treated for late stage Lyme disease.

ILADS has published guidelines that recommend longer and repeated antibiotic therapy for patients that have an incomplete response to antibiotic therapy or relapse after therapy is finished.

ILADS promotes understanding of Lyme disease trough research and education and strongly supports physicians and other health care professionals dedicated to advancing the standard of care for Lyme and its associated diseases.
