 2016 Feb 23 UNH Discovers Biofilm in Those Affected by Lyme Disease UNH research team led by Professor Eva Sapi is the first to show that the microorganisms that cause Lyme Disease are resistant to treatment due to what’s called a biofilm.

In fact, this biofilm boosts therapy resistance by nearly 1,000 times.
