I used the European definition chronic Lyme borreliosis (=late Lyme disease) in the topic below, and this was because this European definition (for late Lyme disease) WAS USED in this study from Norway:
http://www.lymeneteurope.org/forum/view ... =10#p30385
ACA is a localized skin lesion and not at all like the condition most people in the U.S. -- and now even Europe-- refer to as chronic Lyme disease. It's not the same thing. It is treated with 21 days of antibiotics, usually oral doxycycline -- with complete cure
As you can see, he did not understand what I talked about, but as he say this:
It is treated with 21 days of antibiotics, usually oral doxycycline -- with complete cure.
I will give you a study on ACA (this is one of the two studies they use in for ACA in the Swedish recommendations).
A quote (from the study above):
Later extracutaneous manifestations developed in 27% of the patients with erythema migrans and in 47% of the patients with ACA despite antibiotic therapy. We could not prove the superiority of any antibiotic tested in either early or late European Lyme borreliosis.
I give you what Henry said again:
with complete cure
Does it look like that in the study?
