An Emerging Tickborne Disease Is Gaining Steam in New York - Gizmodo

An emerging disease spread by ticks is becoming a substantial public health threat in New York State, researchers warn in a new study out this month.

The study found that human cases of anaplasmosis have dramatically increased in the state over the past decade, and ticks are found to be carrying the bacteria responsible for it more frequently.

“Unlike Lyme disease, another tickborne infection with similar early symptoms that can become debilitating but rarely causes death, anaplasmosis can kill if left untreated,” study author Melissa Prusinski, a researcher with the New York State Department of Health’s Bureau of Communicable Disease Control, told Gizmodo in an email.

Though cases of anaplasmosis remain low relative to Lyme disease, the most commonly reported tickborne illness, its incidence has steadily grown over time.

“Our work has shown that anaplasmosis has increased dramatically in certain regions of New York State in recent years, driven partly by an increase of infected ticks in these areas,” Prusinski said.

But there are likely other missing pieces of the puzzle explaining why cases of anaplasmosis in particular have rapidly increased in and around Albany, compared to the more gradual increase seen with Lyme and other tickborne diseases like babesiosis.
