Minnesota researchers say they have succeeded in growing the organism responsible for human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (HGE), a newly recognized, potentially deadly disease spread by ticks. HGE is spread by organisms harbored by the species of tick responsible for Lyme disease, they said. The ability to grow the bacteria-like organism may help scientists develop better tests and treatments as they study how it grows and spreads.

Lyme disease? That's old news. Scientists have discovered a new virus carried by ticks. And they say it is just the beginning, now that the spotlight on Lyme disease has sparked new interest in the biting, bloodsucking bugs. "There are viruses and bacteria that we don't know about simply because we haven't looked," said Duane Gubler, who studies tick diseases at the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "I think as we study them, we are going to find even more."
