Re: Doxycycline stops Prion Protein Infections

For some reason, these posts reminded me of the automatic computer science paper generator: http://pdos.csail.mit.edu/scigen/.

Is it possible that someone built a similar generator for LymeNet Europe postings? :geek:

Re: Xenodiagnosis in Humans to Detect Bb infection

Some other interesting data from the full paper: Patient D-02 (the PTLDS patient with positive xeno-d/x twice) has the highest C6 index value of all participants (fro...
