Re: Perceptions/behaviors re LD in the Netherlands

B.b.ss, B garinii, B afzelii, B.ruski, B. valaisianae, B. spiel...

Re: Virginia Lyme bill

@Henry Once again I ask, in such seronegative individuals, upon what EVIDENCE do you maintain that such individuals have Lyme disease and not some other illness with similar symptoms? Could it be that it is nothing more than just your biased opinion? That's not enough for me. If you have read abunda...

Re: Perceptions/behaviors re LD in the Netherlands

Uncarefull research of the autors. They write that 90% get a EM and use for this the CDC as reference. May be in the US but not in the Netherlands where it is approx 50% due to the different genospecies In humans LD develops in three stages. In the first stage (the early localized infection), people...

Legislators obviously think different validity of all reliable tests that are used and needed to make correct diagnoses. the bill expresses the unreliablity of testresults. Which tests do you mean?

http://lymedisease.org/news/lyme_disease_views/virginia-gov-signs-lyme-bill.html Is it not ridiculous that this must be forced by law, then something is really wrong.

Re: Live-stream panel with Fallon and Blumenthal March 11

What Gulick tells in this video that long treatment is not recommended. His view about the long treatment trials was in contradiction with what Fallon presented.
