Until we have campaign finance reform, politics in the US will continue to be bought.

Re: Evolution of Human B Cell Responses to Bb VlsE Protein from Early to Late Stages of Lyme Disease

The subclass deficiency would contribute to less effective spirochete ( or bacterial and viral in general) killing off. If both the innate/cellular immune system is blunted and infectious Ab production lowered, that may be an aquired form of immune suppresion that inhibits the killing off of the la...

Re: Ms vs Lyme Differential Diagnosis

The suggestions the others have posted so far I would say are very helpful and are all good things to consider. It's rather sad, but you have to be your own advocate. If you are given a diagnosis, you must ask why, and then question the methods to make sure it really is the right diagnosis and that ...

Re: IDSA Lyme Guidelines (2006) WITHDRAWN from NGC

So, where exactly is this summary response to the public comments period? It currently is certainly well past the close of the public comments period. In fact, it is roughly 9 months and 18 days AFTER the close of this period. I seems pretty incredulous to me that a couple who conceived a child sho...

Re: PET/CT Scan and Lyme

Oh wow, thanks for sharing. I'll keep this in mind. So with the Lymph node granulaomas, does that mean your lymph nodes are enlarged or that you can feel them? Or is this the type of thing that is too small to detect without a scan? This kind of reminds me of the UC Davis work about the lymph node a...

Re: Best way to seek diagnosis and treatment

Lyme is a great imitator, so I would be sure to be ruled out for other things as well. Part of getting diagnosed with Lyme, is making sure you don't have overlapping conditions. You could have Lyme, or you could not. You could have other things or you could not. Or you could be dealing with more tha...
