Johns Hopkins- the bad boys- have published (2019) once again that Lyme tests missed approximately 75% of those with Lyme disease.

They did this in 2005 too, just before the 2006 Lyme guidelines were published.

The authors on this latest study are also on the 2019 Lyme guidelines that recommend having not one, but TWO positive tests before receiving treatment.

Just like what happened before the 2006 guidelines came out.

They contradict their ownselves then wonder why no one likes their guidelines, or THEM!

Think they have an agenda? They published this without funding.

BUT, they didn't see the BIG picture.

What they are trying to do is say many people are being diagnosed with Lyme and treated for it that don't have it- a broken record I know.

What they are actually saying is the tests they are using (and that they recommend) to check the work of other doctors are missing about 75% of those with Lyme.

Maybe they are just plain old stupid?

Just responded on the other post you posted.

Yes, lack of many words after telling the IDSA what I though of their guidelines. HA!

Thanks Ann-OH.

I have been meaning to ask about Hopkins recently but have not done so yet.

Basically, what I was going to ask about was if Hopkins had become less hostile to the idea of chronic Lyme disease?

Hasn't Hopkins been in the Lyme news recently acknowledging that 'Persistent' Lyme Disease exists?

https://hub.jhu.edu/2018/12/04/lyme-disease-treatment-essential-oils/

Also, have come up with a three drug cocktail that treats this persistent lyme disease?

https://www.jhsph.edu/news/news-releases/2019/three-antibiotic-cocktail-clears-persister-lyme-bacteria-in-mouse-study.html

Are there different factions within the school, because their latest research seems to suggest that they acknowledge chronic Lyme, but what Tincup posted about their guidelines suggests they are still hostile to it.

Doesn't make sense imo.
