Wilske - Persistence and seronegativity

In the UK our HPA reference Wilske to support that testing is 99% http://www.hpa.org.uk/web/HPAweb&HPAwebStandard/HPAweb_C/1204031510081 I have looked at many of Wilske's earlier papers and found that she talks about seronegativity and persistent infection after antibiotic treatment but can find no ...

Re: Treponema denticola: not so harmless after all

Analysis of the evidence following Koch's and Hill's criteria http://ww...

Re: Dr Stephen Hawking's father - Aftrican Borrelia research

Very interesting thread. I am sure I haven't been the only Lyme patient that has wondered about Steven Hawking's diagnosis of ALS in view of the longevity of his condition. So I was pleased that you made contact with him- sorry to hear he doesn't seem to have applied his mind to the possibility of B...

Re: IDSA Facebook page gets over 2000 LymeLand comments

I have come rather belatedly to this thread. As I was the second poster to the IDSA Facebook comment of which you are all talking about I clearly had considerable influence to this going viral amongst my fellow Lyme sufferers.

Re: Lyme Disease in a British Referral Clinic

I was not at all surprised to see these results from this referral clinic having heard several reports from patients that had been referred there and may well even be included in this study. One in particular who is doing well on antibiotics. However that aside 23% of cases were positive for Lyme Di...

Re: After discontinuation of treatment, there are 3 options

Hi Camp It was through your blog and then a Google alert that drew me into looking at Lymenet Europe once again. I have been impressed, busy reading more interesting posts again today especially in the Science section. Thank you for some of your interesting questions and posts. Not sure I can cope w...

It is now a year since I stopped antibiotics after nearly ...
