Video-microscopy and pictures of Borrelia burgdorferi and other spirochete like structures links collection
By Marie Kroun, MD

A quote:
Borrelia can – like herpes virus – be kept at bay for long periods by a well functioning host immune system probably for decennials or even for the rest of that individual’s life, without causing any symptoms at all?! – but may flare up anytime whenever host conditions i.e. lower immune defence allows it, once Borrelia has been introduced into the host!
We could therefore possibly also possibly sometimes detect “a few” Borrelia ANTIGEN during “small flares” on samples from the Borrelia carrying host, that is asymptomatic most of the time, i.e. who is not chronically ill, who probably won’t benefit from antibiotic treatment. Hence testing asymptomatic persons is NOT relevant; test ONLY SYMPTOMATIC PATIENTS!

Maybe this belong in this thread, too?

“Trailblazing” Lyme Disease Researchers to Be Honored at Lyme Research Alliance Gala

A quote:
Both scientists are deeply involved in researching “persisters,” cells that manage to survive antibiotic assault. Unlike some cells that are literally resistant and can live and replicate normally in the presence of a drug, mysterious persister cells neither die nor grow in the presence of an antibiotic. Rather, they exist in a dormant state that allows them to survive antibiotic treatment, only to awaken later and start a new wave of infection.
