Re: Ceftriaxone Pulse Dosing Fails to Eradicate Biofilm-Like Bb Persisters by duncan » Fri 9 Dec 2016 22:47 Don't get me wrong - I am a big fan of some Lyme researchers - well-published ones, too.

From LymeNut: If people only knew what it is like to have Lyme, Lyme sufferers would be admired, Loved ones would look up to us, People would be amazed at our strength and willpower to fight through this, We would be an inspiration, Living examples of tenacity, They would wonder how in the world we'...

Among Lyme activists, these are some of the evolving reasons for treatment failures: 1. Treatment was too short 2. Co-infections 3. Physical seclusion (e.g., intracellular, which Bb doesn’t do) 4.

Re: PLEASE Trial

Re: PLEASE Trial Post by duncan » Fri 22 Jul 2016 17:13 There is an argument that the results of previous trials have been upended by the three persister studies which demonstrated unequivocally that conventional abx therapy can be insufficient.

PLEASE Trial

“The PLEASE RCT adds to the evidence debunking the idea that prolonged antibiotic therapy is more effective than shorter treatment for chronic symptoms attributed to Lyme disease.
