Re: CXCL13 as a putative marker of LNB?

TNF antagonists might facilitate the dissemination of dormant or newly acquired viral or bacterial infections, which either directly promote symptoms that mimic autoimmune diseases or break immunological tolerance and induce autoimmunity in predisposed individuals.

New Yorkers, the AG wants to hear your Lyme insurance story

If you live or have lived in NY and were denied treatment for Lyme, now is the time to speak up and tell the Attorney General of New York State, Eric T. Schneiderman, your story.

Details on how to contact his office in the article:

Re: Current Guidelines, Common Clinical Pitfalls, and Future Directions for Laboratory Diagnosis of Lyme Disease, US

Well of course, because all the late neurolyme cases get misdiagnosed as other neurological diseases....

Re: CCL19 as a Chemokine Risk Factor for Post-Treatment Lyme

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't most of Aucott's studies on CDC positive patients or ones with classic bullseyes? If so that's leaving out huge portions of the patients, which in my opinion are probably the ones that are most likely to suffer long terms symptoms if they don't have a good ...

Re: Clinical study to evaluate Advanced Laboratory Services' Borrelia culture test

Immune deficiency significant enough to render serological tests less reliable. It also slightly annoys me that immune deficient folks cannot participate, even tho it's a study on a CULTURE. My guess is they want to compare it to existing immune response based tests. Then there's the fact that Lyme...
