Re: New Lyme infection occurs with new rash - not relapse

"In fact, in the primary experiment, recovery of B. burgdorferi in culture from specimens obtained from these nonhuman primates was almost uniformly unsuccessful, even among untreated animals." BUT don't forget this part... "Finally, small numbers of intact spirochetes were recovered by xenodiagnosi...

Re: The Patient Experience

Just voted as the only one diagnosed and treated early but it didn't cure me. I was very classic, from attached tick (ignorantly crushed and broken off leaving snout in me for weeks), to bullseye a few days later to very strong flu like a couple weeks after that followed by heavy head, facial palsy,...

Re: Sweden: Lyme Vaccine Almost Ready

I agree with Robert. Why would anyone be interested in a vaccine for something that is so rare and could easily be cured with a couple weeks of antibiotics? I would hope that ground level physicians are current and in good conscience would never recommend a patient take a vaccine that they don't nee...

Re: Duration of tickfeeding before removal on transmission o

These timelines are also based on the tick being left to feed. Being crushed or partially squished whiile feeding can push the contents of the midgut into it's host while they are attached. The timeline is out the window then. Sources of Lyme info often mention to not squeeze the tick but don't expl...

Re: Nervous System LD (as per Dr. J.J. Halperin)

My god some things don't change. I haven't logged on here in months and Spanky still sucks 50% of threads into this black hole. Spanky we all don't have time, or the desire, to play your games. This can be a very informative site and has some great posters. Devil's Advocate is a good role to some ex...

Re: Wormser et al cite flaws in Embers Rhesus Macaque Study

Well since you asked, Spanky, the part I don't understand is why you are so hypersensitive as to ignore the clear meaning of my original post and instead respond with information that is clearly common knowledge. You really showed me...just looked so smart there. Don't worry, I am sure everyone read...

Re: Wormser et al cite flaws in Embers Rhesus Macaque Study

Sorry one more thought related directly to topic/article... I have not seen Shapiro and the gang's treatment guidelines for Chinese humans v other humans. They obviously would be different, judging by their printed critique. How much Doxy should a physician be prescribing for a non-American? These g...

Re: Wormser et al cite flaws in Embers Rhesus Macaque Study

"...insufficient attention was placed on documenting the blood levels, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamic parameters of the antibiotics used in this host. Consequently, it is impossible to conclude that the findings have validity in judging the efficacy of doxycycline or ceftriaxone for the treat...
