Re: SARM1, Not MyD88, Mediates TLR7/TLR9-Induced Apoptosis in Neurons

This looks important but I wonder how many years will pass before it can be used clinically, if it can.

Was surprised that anything useful came out of NAIAD, but in fact this is not Bethesda speaking, it is Montana. Much more believable.

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

I see nothing unreasonable about people assuming that apples will be found on apple trees, instead of orange trees. Snapping at those people is not useful and should not be allowed on the forum. Having these researchers produce anything that helped us or in fact was truthful about chronic lyme would...

Re: Heartland Virus Neutralizing Antibodies in U.S. Vertebrate Wildlife 2009–2014

The extent to which Durland Fish will go to deny any kind of tick related new information is breathtaking. Dr. No should be his nickname. We will never get any help from people like this. His PhD should be taken away. He is no scientist.

Re: Results PLEASE study on prolonged antibiotic treatment

A repeat of the Klempner trial with the same shortcomings in design. Known to the researchers and used for that reason, it is clear. This study could have had no other outcome, was predicted from the outset right here on LNE.

Re: LNB in patient treated with TNF-alpha inhibitor

So how is this different from treating with steroids? Lots of different cytokines and chemokines. Who is to say which one or ones is important? I would have to wonder if this kind of treatment were tried in a lot of patients instead, what would the outcome be? How long would you have to follow the p...

Re: Widely Used Antibiotics ↔ Mitochondrial Dysfunction

Thank you Lorima for pointing out the dosages, which definitely puts a different slant on it.

Re: Inflammation in the Pathogenesis of LNB

Well, what we really need is less inflammation in chronic lyme cases. What about concurrent antibiotics and steroids? I would have assumed that anyone with longterm chronic lyme has got various autoimmune markers, not to mention high levels of inflammation that are causing damage too.

Re: Effects of Borrelia on host immune system

I agree velvet. We sure can't rely on the medical establishment which has found the rewards of denial to exceed those of honesty.

Re: Mexico Not Taking It Lying Down!

Impressed with some of the analysis here and thinking it deserves to be seen in print. Tom? Others. Not the one, as usual, full of venom.

And did Barbara Johnson leave CDC? This was news to me.
