Re: Expanded Study Confirms Lyme May Be Sexually Transmitted

Plausibly, at best perhaps it may happen as a very rare accident, just like transmission via mosquitoes . The problem is that as long as persons stung by mosquitoes and getting sick after a while are not tested for Lyme disease, we will never know if transmission via mosquitoes is so rare as it see...

Re: Resurrecting the 'yuppie vaccine'

I knew it and I've always known! That in all those years my family practioner thought he was dealing with a patient suffering from yuppie disease when seeing me! But fortunately, after almost 20 years of untreated Lyme disease, it seems he finally believes me as I now look like a Junky! Lucky me! :w...

Re: How prone is PCR to contamination?

Hi velvetmagnetta, Does anyone have any facts, figures, opinions , or just thoughts about the how prone the (PCR) method of DNA detection by amplification is to contamination? Here's my opinion which, at the same time, is also a question: Isn't it remarkable that when it comes to Lyme disease this c...

Re: Long-Term Assessment of Fatigue in LD

Thanks for posting Rita.
I wonder if besides Borrelia, these patients have also been tested for other possible pathogens/viruses such as Epstein Barr, of which has been found that can be reactive and which perhaps cause long term fatigue.

Well, where are our scientists waiting for? why not doing a xenodiagnostic trial with Bartonella infected ticks on humans?

Re: Never was nor will be one only infected with Borrelia

Thanks for verifying Martian. And my apologies if my post was misleading (but this is what I had at my disposal). With regard to sientific evidence that ticks might transmit Bartonella, I found the following study: Source: Pubmed 1Laboratory of Rickettsiae, Chlamydiae, and Enzotic Spirochetes, Natio...

Re: Never was nor will be one only infected with Borrelia

Got that? How can I get that when it's not included in the article I red?? (Source: Dutch Association for Lymepatients, bulletin nr. 02/2014) Thanks anyway for your kind efforts in supplying these additional details Martian ;) . Besides all this, AFAIK it is still not established that Bartonella ca...
