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

I would love to be able to continue this discussion and more fully explain that I was not attacking any specific researchers, merely pointing out the general problem. I don't use that tactic and prefer to discuss each study on its own merits or lack thereof, as can be seen in several of my posts whe...

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

Henry, you seem to believe that credentials somehow automatically = credibility. Maybe in some scientific fields this is true, however you seem to have forgotten that there is one very large factor (which is highly prevalent among those Lyme researchers you favour) that can completely negate your eq...

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

Henry, I posted a response to some of your earlier comments to me, (along with a few questions), which I think you must have missed. It appears that we cross-posted contributions to this discussion - given that your post was exactly one second after mine. IF you did truly write "suit yourself....." ...

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

@ duncan.......These two things are not mutually exclusive and in fact are most likely interconnected. Read to the bottom to see why I think that could be the case.

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

Henry, I have purposefully not contributed to this conversation because Duncan was so very eloquently engaging with you and trying to help you understand some basic deficiencies in your thought processes. However, I think you are completely wrong on this. A competent physician would look at Duncan's...

Re: Borrelia miyamotoi Polymerase Chain Reaction in Rhode Island: A Case Series

Thank you Henry for drawing my attention back to this thread. As outraged as I was that one third of the PCR positive patients were not provided any treatment, clearly when I first noticed and posted this I did not do my usual thorough job of digging deeper. I am very familiar with your first refere...
