Re: Borrelia burgdorferi persister cells

Everyone missing the good news...4 pulsed regimes of Ceftriaxone and all were gone. There was a happy ending after an exhaustive battle.

I am really glad to read this. I wondered how Kim Lewis was making out...this is really important work.

Re: NIH awards $3M grant for new LD test

Well I hold out hope that it is a real improvement and that interpretation is not perversed or neutered by the CDC. I am a patient that is ruled a false positive because I produced IGM positive results only after being sick for years. I wonder how a new test might or might not recognize my case and ...

Re: Dr Burrascano shared his treatment approach recently:

I promise I am not a pharma rep and I doubt phyfe is either. The reality is that most of us have found, through unwanted and prolonged experience, that antibiotics are required to keep us afloat in our work and personal lives. Out of desperation, I have tried a few natural remedies that were suppose...

Re: Dr Burrascano shared his treatment approach recently:

I think it is great. We know it has worked well with Dr B and Pamela Weintraub. I am still not convinced that spirochetes are being drawn from dormancy and caught off guard but if it works, it works. I personally think the immune system is being coached by the cycles of falling ill, like being vacci...

Re: A Real Top Scientist Investigating Chronic Lyme

Thanks for a great post. Good news and great work being done that has yet to be attacked and politicized. I am a little disappointed in the news that ADEP4 was not effective against Lyme...didn't realize that...had been waiting on that one! Regardless, feelings of hope continue. I have been naively ...

Re: ClpP kills persisters and eradicates a chr. biofilom inf

Sounds like quite a breakthrough. Really great work. Not sure where spirochetes fit on the scale of wall permeability but the following quote gives hope. "Lewis’s group is currently collaborating with a team of chemists to develop and identify other small molecules that could activate proteases in d...

Re: Boston Globe - Uncertainty issues and Lyme 2013

Interesting read. So many sources seem to be aware of "The Wall" that leaves patients kicking and scratching for years but it remains just the same.

Re: An Explanation for Borrelia etiology of STARI illness

Wasn't Dr. Edwin (?) Masters screaming this from the hilltops about 20 years ago? Hate to be victims all the time but the technology used was not cutting edge and seems like this could have been done years ago. When will it be replicated or recognized in any way I wonder? Then when will that informa...

Re: Baxter Presents Phase I/II Data Evaluating Lyme Disease

Little late here but reading this and can't help thinking there are a lot of Lyme patients that are denied diagnosis and treatment due to being seronegative. Some patients do not produce enough or are being interpreted to not have enough antibodies to register positive. These patients are likely goi...
