DEVELOPING A TREATMENT FOR DEBILITATING SYMPTOM COMPLEXES ATTRIBUTED TO TICKS
Grant number: 1169827 | Funding period: 2019 - 2024
DSCATT (Debilitating Symptom Complexes attributed to Ticks) are medically unexplained. With similar conditions, effective therapies have been developed even though the causes are unclear. This project would extend that approach to DSCATT. We would first develop a case definition, then adapt the treatment approach for unexplained syndromes to the specifics of DSCATT. We would then pilot a randomised controlled trial to confirm the effectiveness of the new therapy.
