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

Henry, you dear man...

I tested positive on the ELISA.

Now please move on. :)

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

Yes, Henry. I meant that - when I said "comes up short" - if the ELISA came back with the wrong result. That's why I also added "in error."

But. That. Reference. Was. Not. About. Me.

Time to move on.

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

I wrote "What differentiates me from someone that...etc...Or someone that doesn't even get a shot at the WB because the ELISA came up short?" GOT IT??? What differentiates me and my results - positive on all three key metrics - from people who get shafted because their results are not in accordance ...

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

Clarity admittedly is not one of my strength these days, but I'm pretty sure it is hard to misinterpret what I wrote. Geez, Henry, I shouldn't have to walk you through each paragraph of my narrative. I test positive on all three FDA-approved tests. I did NOT say I tested negative on the ELISA. Pleas...

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

What differentiates me from someone that consistently only registers IgM positive? Or someone that only has two or even a single IgG band? Or someone that doesn't ever even get a shot at the WB because the ELISA came up short in error? A suspect algorithm? The Bb diagnostic and treatment infrastruct...

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

Oh, I have five or more bands positive, Henry. Otherwise, how could I claim to satisfy each of the three FDA-approved metrics? You need to read before you leap. And don't forget, theoretically each of those one in five that are not cured also satisfied the 2T at some point. Medicine - last I checked...

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

Henry: "...a persistent infection FOR WHICH THERE IS NO EVIDENCE..." That is blatantly false. You are welcome to use me as an example, if you like. If I walk into ANY IDSA clinician's office with my symptom cluster, and they order the three FDA-approved Lyme diagnostics, I should be diagnosed with l...

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

I wonder what the clinical relevance of, every 12 months, the generating of over 60,000 confirmed Lyme patients - but not cured of symptoms - is. As to ethics, I'm a bit hazy on how ethical either ignoring or deflecting the fact that conventional treatment fails up to 20% of confirmed Lyme patients ...

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

How do the authors put it? "...at least 10-20% of the patients continue to suffer from persistent symptoms..." Why? "...one possibility is due to Borrelia burgdorferi persisters..." So that's 10-20% of - what is the latest estimate? Upwards of 375,000 in the US alone each year? Thank goodness courag...

What I find particularly gratifying is that this study represents a Johns Hopkins effort. :D
