Good news for the new year!
HARD SCIENCE ON LYME: Straubinger’s New Study Shows How Lyme Bacteria survives
One of the hot topics in Lyme disease is whether the bacteria that causes Lyme disease persists. There are a lot of factors that go into proving this, but one is whether there is a “plausible biological mechanism for persistence.”
What this means is whether there is a mechanism in biology that might allow the bacteria to survive.
Simply put, the Infectious Diseases Society of America says there isn’t and other researchers disagree.
The most recent article on this subject is from Straubinger, who is best known for his research on persistence in dogs.
No. It's just more evidence to add to the pile. Eventually the pile will become so massively obvious, that the denial will no longer be tolerated by "most" physicians, even if members of the IDSA cling.
It's part of a typical shift in Science. It's common for this type of pattern to take place.

Thanks for sharing. The abstract is also on PubMed.

Thank you for the heads up Tincup.
I look forward to being able to read the entire study sometime.
I also hope there is plenty of follow-up by their fellow colleagues. There is already a lot of research supporting this study's findings, but it definitely goes a step further than some (the viable RNA, post cyst form).
