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

Don't get me wrong - I am a big fan of some Lyme researchers - well-published ones, too. Names that come to mind include Lewis and Zhang and Embers and Aucott. Of course, most of the researchers I like sort of contradict much of the misplaced dogma being proven untenable by the front-line clinicians...

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

Not to be confused with experts on the front lines who actually deal directly with Lyme patients daily, year after year, and try to cure them?

Theory has its place, yes, but sometimes it has to be put in its proper place by reality.

Universally accepted? :shock:

They are not even universally accepted in the United States.

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

It is a good thought, Henry, and I am heartened and encouraged that you speak to the sufferers and their plight, and that you offer hope. I suspect, as dlf alluded to, there is a component of immune dysfunction at play. I also suspect there is a subset of the Lyme population who will directly benefi...

Too narrow. We are dealing with systemic issues in too many sufferers. Persistent infection fits better.

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

Henry, about 350,000 US citizens will be diagnosed with Lyme in the next 12 months. How many of them do you think will be forced to prove they are actively infected, as in via culture? Seriously, where does it say in the IDSA Guidelines that prospective patients must prove ACTIVE infection, when ind...

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

I have conducted research and written research reports, and I have directed research projects. I have had my results published many, many times. Companies as well as governments have paid as much as $4,000 for a single copy of one of my reports. So I know a thing or two about research, Henry, and I ...

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

Before you ride off into the sunset, Henry, let me set you straight on a couple of things. I am not "just" 2T positive. Regardless, changing diagnostic rules post-treatment is ludicrous and dangerous -- for reasons I've already covered. A competent physician would evaluate labs and symptom clusters ...

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

Go grab yourself a dictionary. Or go to Google. Look up "evidence". Look up "prove." Do you appreciate there is a difference? Now, symptoms aside, ask the same question you asked me of anyone who gets diagnosed with early disseminated Lyme or late stage Lyme. Why are you demanding of me more than th...
