Re: Ceftriaxone Pulse Dosing Fails to Eradicate Biofilm-Like Bb Persisters

Since I am not advocating the "disrupted immune system" hypothesis, you will have to get assistance from someone else to enlighten you on that issue. All I have suggested is that since the lipoprotein of live or dead Borrelia -- or their cellular debris-- have pharmacological properties that elicit ...

Re: Ceftriaxone Pulse Dosing Fails to Eradicate Biofilm-Like Bb Persisters

dlf: As I noted in a previous posting on this topic, the work you describe re: cytokines in humans is now in progress. Bockenstedt is but one of the investigators examining this issue.

Re: Ceftriaxone Pulse Dosing Fails to Eradicate Biofilm-Like Bb Persisters

dlf: I find it troubling and indicative of a deep seated mental problem to be writing and posting on LNE at 1:46am and 2:25 am. Usually, I am soundly asleep at that time. Perhaps you ought to get a bit more rest. It might help to "clarify" your thought process. Incidentally, several investigators ha...

Re: Ceftriaxone Pulse Dosing Fails to Eradicate Biofilm-Like Bb Persisters

I too was pointing out the general problem, namely, when evaluating information about Lyme disease, it is important to know something about their past accomplishments and contributions of the investigator (credentials) and what other established investigators think about their views (i.e., publicati...

Re: Ceftriaxone Pulse Dosing Fails to Eradicate Biofilm-Like Bb Persisters

Shoddy reasoning, Duncan. What you say assumes that these patients all are suffering from the same thing, namely, that they have a persistent Borrelia infection, which has not been demonstrated to be the case, and that extended antibiotic therapy or treatment with other kinds of antibiotics will cur...

Re: Ceftriaxone Pulse Dosing Fails to Eradicate Biofilm-Like Bb Persisters

dlf: More telling is the tendency to attack the hard-earned reputation of accomplished scientists, who can't all be wrong, when their findings fail to support your unproven views. In the final analysis, that's what you are doing. When you can't provide proof to support your unfounded views, the next...

Re: Ceftriaxone Pulse Dosing Fails to Eradicate Biofilm-Like Bb Persisters

You entirely miss the point, Duncan. The issue is one of examining the credentials of those making statements to be interpreted as facts based on evidence . Surely you would agree that having extensive experience doing productive research on Lyme disease and having the results of such research evalu...

Re: Ceftriaxone Pulse Dosing Fails to Eradicate Biofilm-Like Bb Persisters

Duncan: Surely you jest. A list of MANY publications on Lyme disease in major peer-reviewed scientific journals MUST count for something, yah think? Compare your top 3 to the list of published papers by Steere, Wormser, and Shapiro. No comparison!!

Re: Ceftriaxone Pulse Dosing Fails to Eradicate Biofilm-Like Bb Persisters

You should do a PubMed search on the number of Lyme-related research papers -- not opinion paper, notes, and letters-- by your "front-line" people. It could be revealing. If they know anything about Lyme disease, they sure aren't telling anyone.
