Re: Lyme Atlas of Images - a call for contributions

Definitely interested the more that is documented in a way that people at different levels of understanding can use the better.

Perhaps using dropbox would help prevent LNE from getting too overloaded.

Re: Band 41

Thanks Claudia Still leaves me thinking that a positive band 41 should not be ignored - it is either something nasty or something mild and self limiting - clearly persistent in my case - possibly dental but then even dental spirochetes have been shown to be not so innocuous as previously thought.

Band 41

One useful thing about the streaming was the ability to pause or go back and thus write down certain pertinent points and perhaps catch up during the breaks between speakers.
