CFS/ME Metabolomics study published- FYI

I believe this study is relevant to Chronic Lyme suffers. Here is a possible mechanism or basis for that possibility involving a disruption of the metabolic system as a conserved defensive mechanism. This paper describes the principle that underlies the metabolic dysruption. The studies looking for ...

Re: Differences in Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto Strains from Europe and the United States.

I believe it would be more important to review the wide range of genotypes of Borrelia that cause a Lyme like condition such as Borreliosis that would treated identically as common infections. Borrelia has a long history of migration across the world over millions of years with large barriers such a...

The dormant blood microbiome in chronic, inflammatory diseases

This is a very interesting paper in its discussion of a variety of concepts quite applicable to Chronic Lyme and similar conditions like CFS/ME including: viable, non-viable and dormant bacteria culturable versus un-culturable, bacteria bacteria hiding in gut and escaping into the blood the lack of ...

Re: First prize in the Neuro Lyme Denial Category goes to.....

When I searched online, I found a NNecker... Pretty cool! It loves boating and wrestling. I wonder what that back of his fingers look like after being drug along the ground? I guess it makes sense that something like this would have no compassion and full of hatred. Very sad. A Donald supporter I as...

Re: New: Identification of Additional Anti-Persister Activity from an FDA Drug Library

Henry and hv088ct, What are your credentials besides being crude Donald Trump-like goons who enjoy attacking people trying to help while not lifting a finger to detremine what is going on while hiding in the shadows. If you are so sure you are right, tell us your credentials and provide real science...

Re: Ms vs Lyme Differential Diagnosis

I would ask for Western blots (IgG and IgM) regardless of what the ELISA result is. Stony Brook is one of the few non-specialty labs that will do that, if specifically requested. The reason is, that the ELISA is less sensitive and less specific than the Western blots. It is used routinely because i...

Re: Ms vs Lyme Differential Diagnosis

I would also go beyond double checking Lyme as the etiology of your problem. I would recommend that anyone who is diagnosed with a "Syndrome" where the true cause is not known, needs to have a serious differential diagnosis looking for treatable causes before living with it. MS is thought to be an a...

Re: New: Identification of Additional Anti-Persister Activity from an FDA Drug Library

I wonder if people in NIH Lyme research studies even get tested for all the possible Bb agents. Sometimes I wonder if researchers are always really looking all that hard... I'm not even sure the NIH Lyme team has been consistently dedicated solely and exclusively to Lyme, or even to TBD's - despite...
