This is a manipulated study with the objectiv to cut future cost of testing. Doctors should more often follow the Dutch guidelines and reduce bloodsample examination because the majority came out negativ with the C6 test. Only patients with specific LD symptoms like fasial paresis, arthritis and ACA...

Re: The Phenomenon of "Chronic Lyme Disease"

I think 6 months is too short. Is this 6 months after tickbite? 6 months after the onset of symptoms? 6 months after the diagnosis? 6 months after first treatment completion?. In a questionairy in Holland among 725 patients 51% was diagnosed within a year. This is because the family doctor only in 3...

Re: CDC FAQ: Can Lyme disease be transmitted sexually?

@duncan I think you are right, wording, definitions is/are important. In Holland we requested that Lyme disease became a notifiable disease. I was rejected because to a notifiable disease belongs a case definition, and that was the problem. How do you define Lyme disease? It is difficult to avoid ov...

Re: CDC FAQ: Can Lyme disease be transmitted sexually?

That's right, served for the vaccine, to be able to distinguish vaccinated from non-vaccinated patients, but it failed, so solely a business decision, the biggest crime in Lyme history

Re: Lyme Disease May Be Sexually Transmitted, Study Suggests

It is recognized that the relevant human structures are not mouse skin. Human mucous membrane isnot equal to mice skin. When referring to studies as " evidence" it might be logic to ask oneself, is this study reliable and applicable? Does this study prove that human sexual transmision can be exclud...

Re: CDC FAQ: Can Lyme disease be transmitted sexually?

Lyme disease is all about the hidden secrets I have never understood, and nobody could never explain to me, why 2 significants bands p30 and p34 were excluded in the CDC critieria for WB.
