HARD SCIENCE ON LYME: Straubingers New Study Shows How Lyme Bacteria survives

02
Jan

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 isnt 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.

The highlights of the study after the jump. . .

Already added it to the Case For Chronic Infection for anyone interested. Just one more for the pile that support the possibility (And probability) of Chronic Infection taking place.

Is this enough to make the IDSA crumble?

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.

We're the ones who will make the IDSA crumble, by getting the word out exposing them for the butchers they are.

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).
