NorVect is arranging an international conference about vector-borne diseases at The Grand Hotel in Oslo, May 26th and May 27th 2014. Some of the world’s leading experts, scientists and medical doctors have accepted our invitation to come and share the latest research, as well as their own experiences on the subject matter. We are honored to welcome the following speakers:

•Joseph J. Burrascano Jr., MD
•Richard I. Horowitz, MD
•Edward B. Breitschwerdt, DVM
•Alan MacDonald, MD
•Eva Sapi Ph.D.
•Christian Perronne, Ph.D, MD
•Jyotsna Shah, Ph.D, CCLD, MBA
•Judith Miklossy, Ph.D, MD, DSc
•Carl-Morten Motzfeld Laane, Ph.D
•Randi Eikeland, Ph.D, MD
•Bela Bozsik, MD
•Armin Schwarzbach, Ph.D, MD
•Åshild Andreassen, Ph.D

A rapidly increasing number of people are getting chronically ill due to insufficient diagnostics and treatment of Lyme disease and co-infections. Recent figures from the US (Center for Disease Control, CDC) report that the number of infected with Lyme Disease is indeed 10 times higher than previously anticipated – that is 300.000 per year in the US. New estimates from Scotland confirm a 1000% increase of infected people over the last decade. An ongoing Scandinavian collaborative (Scandtick) demonstrates a modest estimate of about 40.000 infected with vector-borne diseases in the Öresund/Kattegat/Skagerrak-region last year. This is strongly contradictory to the 255 infected that was the official infection rate in Norway in 2012.

It has become evident that we need much more research regarding vector-borne diseases, in order to develop sufficient diagnostic tools, and to give adequate treatment to patients. However, in the medical communities there is a discrepancy regarding what direction one should take, that is, how to diagnose correctly and how to treat sufficiently. Increasingly more Norwegian doctors realize that there is an urgent need for more knowledge, new research and expertise from medical communities outside Norway to meet this growing number patients falling ill to these diseases.
