Double Your Impact! 

Make a gift before January 1, 2018, and it will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000! Special thanks to Steve Sim and his wife Marilyn Einstein and Nancy and Mike Goodman who are generously supporting Dr. Marna Ericson's research by matching up to $10,000 raised for this fund.

Please join the Beating Bartonella community in supporting a research study led by Dr. Marna Ericson and her team at the Cutaneous Imaging Lab here at the University of Minnesota Medical School.  Following numerous reports from clinicians and patients, an association between skin striae and infection with Bartonella henselae has recently been documented in a published case report. A larger study is needed to investigate the potential role that Bartonella play in the development of skin striae, linear streaks in the skin, in infected patients.  The goal of this study is to generate preliminary data needed to apply for grant support through regular research funding channels.  In this study, Dr. Ericson and her research team will measure the prevalence of Bartonella spp infection in patients who present with these skin striae through molecular confirmation of Bartonella DNA in blood and skin samples. Dr. Ericson will further investigate the interactions of the Bartonella with fibrillar collagen in the dermis of the skin.  Research partners include Galaxy Diagnostics where the blood and tissue will be tested for Bartonella DNA.  

Please make a donation to support this research!!  Bartonella infection is extremely challenging to confirm with laboratory testing.  As a result, the findings form this study are of critical importance to physicians and patients in the effort to better diagnose Bartonella infections in people with chronic illness potentially associated with Bartonella infection. Your support will go directly to Dr. Ericson’s lab to support this important research.
