Disclosures: Dr G.P. Wormser reports receiving research grants from Immunetics, Inc, RareCyte, Inc, Institute for Systems Biology and bioMérieux SA. He owns equity in Abbott; has been an expert witness in malpractice cases involving Lyme disease; is an unpaid board member of the American Lyme Disease Foundation; has been an expert witness regarding Lyme disease in a disciplinary action for the Missouri Board of Registration for the Healing Arts; and was a consultant to Baxter for Lyme disease vaccine development.
The greater the ignorance, the greater the dogmatism.
