Re: General outcomes after discontinuation of treatment

Thanks for bumping this thread.

Re: Intravital Imaging of Vascular Transmigration by the Lyme Spirochete

Excellent find! I skimmed through the paper, but I will need to do another reading. I wonder if NK Cell Function tests findings include iNK cells? So many of us seem to have low NK Cell Function levels... There was a study recently published by Marshal looking at iNKTcells in pt with ME/cfs. http:/...

duncan, As you know I am not an expert on Lyme, but have been studying the past year a lot of stuff on host pathogen interaction. My favorites are protozoa. Protozoa have developed the most remarkable strategies to survive and have a incredible complex life cycle. For example, they manipulate the ch...
