"Lyme Disease." World of Health. Gale, 2010. Science in Context. Web. 18 Sept. 2014.
This article is about the symptoms and the background history of Lyme disease. The article mainly focused on the symptoms of Lyme disease such as headache, and flue like symptoms. This article is a brief description of the Lyme disease, the incubation period of Lyme disease and where the disease was reported first. More than anything this article is a rundown of facts about Lyme disease.

"Lyme Disease."   Sick!   Gale, 2007.   Science in Context . Web. 19 Sept. 2014.
This article isn’t exactly an article. This page shows what the actual Lyme disease looks like on a human body, what Lyme disease is, description, causes, symptoms and the late and early stages of the disease. This is a good page to look at if you’re not familiar with the Lyme disease. Anyone who is looking up what is Lyme disease of a project on Lyme disease should use this source. It’s a good recommendation.

Lasker, Jill S. "Lyme disease." The Gale Encyclopedia of Science. Ed. K. Lee Lerner and Brenda Wilmoth Lerner. 5th ed. Farmington Hills, MI: Gale, 2014. Science in Context. Web. 19 Sept. 2014.
This article was about Lyme disease and what is Lyme disease. This article focuses on how Lyme disease is caused, treatment for Lyme disease after diagnosis, incubation period, this is a good article because it answers the questions of What is the prognosis of the disease, How can the disease be prevented, How is the disease diagnosed, How is the disease transmitted, and What is the background/history of the disease.

Frey, Rebecca J., Jennifer E. Sisk, and Tish Davidson. "Lyme disease." The Gale Encyclopedia of Medicine. Ed. Laurie J. Fundukian. 4th ed. Detroit: Gale, 2011.Science in Context. Web. 19 Sept. 2014.
This article was basically a page on the graphic cite of Lyme disease. All this article was were pictures of the effects of Lyme disease and the early and late stages of the lime disease. The very main focus of this article was the demographics, description, rick factors, symptoms and causes, early stages, late stages, diagnosis, tests, treatment. Drugs, and prevention of the disease.

"The quest for a Lyme vaccine." New York Times 22 Sept. 2013: 10(L). Science in Context. Web. 22 Sept. 2014.
This article was interesting and different from all of the others this article was about what causes Lyme disease and what type of setting you  have to be in to get the disease.in the article it said “People who spend time outdoors in wooded or grassy areas where black-legged ticks are abundant would welcome a vaccine to protect them from Lyme disease and other dangerous pathogens that the same ticks can transmit simultaneously.” And also this article it states that “Other researchers are working to develop vaccines that could cause the human immune system to react to the saliva in a tick bite in ways that would make it hard for the tick to continue ingesting blood and disrupt its ability to transmit germs. That would protect people from the Lyme bacteria and possibly other pathogens that can cause even more lethal diseases, such as Powassan, which kills about 10 percent of its victims.”

"Lyme disease."  World of Scientific Discovery . Gale, 2007.  Science in Context . Web. 17 Sept. 2014.
This article is about lyme disease and the stages there are. Most people don’t know that there are atages whith lyme disease they think you get bit by a tick or bug and it appears. This the article it stated that “ A Lyme disease infection progresses through three stages. The first stage includes a bull's-eye-like rash that can appear at the site of the tick bite in a few days to a few weeks. There can also be symptoms similar to influenza, headaches, and soreness in the neck. The second stage includes irregular heartbeat, joint pains, disturbances of vision and memory, and facial-nerve paralysis. The disease can then progress to a third stage which includes joint inflammation and arthritis. While it can be easily treated with antibiotics (especially oral tetracycline) in the early stages, Lyme disease is often misdiagnosed until it has progressed to the second or third stage, during which the damage can become permanent.”

This article is about how infectious Lyme disease is and how some people go and get shots because people in their household have the disease but they don’t.  Also this article touches base on the three stages that lime disease has and the symptoms that come with the stages. The stages are not similar to the flue or H1N1 so this disease cannot be mistaken for a cold.
