Re: Disulfiram: A Test of Symptom Reduction Among Patients With Previously Treated Lyme Disease

Persisters makes a lot more sense than this Peptidoglycan persistence (or proliferation?) theory. It is a cellular component shed by the Lyme bacteria that is causing inflammation...might make sense that this cellular component actually is coming from it’s source. My god old Steere is really getting...

VLA15 Vaccine

I am sure some of you have read about the phase-two clinical trials starting later this year for the new vaccine by Valneva. I am most interested in using it as treatment. I discussed vaccine as treatment with an ID doc years ago. He seemed to think it would be "interesting" and potentially helpful....

Re: Late Disseminated Lyme Disease: Associated Pathology and Spirochete Persistence Post-Treatment in Rhesus Macaques

Thanks Rita. I am only about half done reading this and getting too drowsy so I will finish tomorrow. Wow Embers et all were very thorough. Learned from previous experience...those on the wrong side of science have an even tougher path to discredit this great work. Must be a tough read for some. Won...

Re: Ceftriaxone Pulse Dosing Fails to Eradicate Biofilm-Like Bb Persisters

Yes of course there are other theories of persisting symptoms. We have heard the auto-immune, daily living, viral, and others. Persistent infection is a very realistic culprit that really needs to be investigated thoroughly before funding is dried up and put into other areas. For anyone involved in ...

Re: Johns Hopkins Awarded $10 Million Cohen Foundation Grant

Well I find it heartening that research is being funded and good work is being done. Clearly there is a benefit to not amalgamating two parties when one is considered to be somehow influenced or biased on the matter...I am sure all can appreciate that. Perhaps there is no skeletons involved, no peer...

Re: Anyone know the latest on the Ceres Nanotrap

VM, yes uncured infection is my personal opinion. My GP is leaning towards tick borne virus at this point and that I may have killed the infection already. She doesnt like the antibiotics and prefers mainstream thinking that antibiotics should cure Lyme, but I know she feels far from certain and is ...
