The director of the Ad Hoc Committee for Health Equity in ICD11 Borreliosis Codes and founder of the Global Network ...

Geographic Expansion of Lyme disease in Michigan, 2000-2014

Before Henry and hv808ct jump to criticize me for slamming this study, I will state up front that there are elements of this paper that I like and actually find sort of encouraging. http://ofid.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2017/01/08/ofid.ofw269.full.pdf+html Oxford JournalsMedicine & Health Ope...

Autoimmune Arthritides, Rheumatoid Arthritis, etc. Following Lyme Disease

Considering that many mainstream IDSA physicians have been telling patients for years that Lyme is mostly an easily treated disease with relatively benign sequelae which are mostly comparable to the "aches and pains of everyday life", this study would seem to be an admission of sorts. Of course, the...

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

Ummm, Henry, you seem to be confused again. You do understand that this is an international discussion forum, don't you? Given your personal focus on Lyme in the U.S., I doubt you really live in the same European time zone as the lymeneteurope clock. Sometimes I wonder why I hope it would even be po...

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

@ hv808ct I continue to be puzzled by what you were trying to communicate when you wrote: John Aucott’s position as Hopkins faculty seems as tenuous as my own office space and title at the University of _______. He’s the sole physician at the obscure JHU LD Research Ctr., and both he and Embers seem...

Re: Review: Low-quality of Clinical Evidence Exists when Comparing Antibiotics for the Treatment of LNB

Yes, Lorima that last paragraph is truly amusing, particularly given what the authors wrote leading up to it. From the Review Article - the Authors' conclusions: There is a lack of evidence identified through our high-quality search strategy on the efficacy of antibiotics for treatment of LNB in the...
