Now after reading that:
http://library.lymenet.org/domino/file.nsf/bbf2f15334c1f28585256613000317cc/067a1927dfa5c8db852567c700120020?OpenDocument

("CDC guide to Lyme desease")

.... I am really perplexed.

It says there:

"Treatment and prognosis

Lyme disease is treated with antibiotics under the supervision of a physician. Several antibiotics are effective. Antibiotics usually are given by mouth but may be given intravenously in more severe cases. Patients treated in the early stages with antibiotics usually recover rapidly and completely. Most patients who are treated in later stages of the disease also respond well to antibiotics. In a few patients who are treated for Lyme disease, symptoms of persisting infection may continue or recur, making additional antibiotic treatment necessary. Varying degrees of permanent damage to joints or the nervous system can develop in patients with late chronic Lyme disease. Typically these are patients in whom Lyme disease was unrecognized in the early stages or for whom the initial treatment was unsuccessful. Rare deaths from Lyme disease have been reported."

.... and:

"Lyme disease research

Research continues to discover

* Where ticks are most likely to be and how best to protect against them.
* Which chemicals and other approaches are best for controlling ticks in each kind of habitat.
* Better diagnostic tests.
* Improved antibiotic treatment.
* An effective vaccine.
* Effects of mother's infection on the developing fetus.
* How Lyme disease bacteria cause chronic infections of the joints and nervous system and how to prevent these complications. "

Now, how is it possible that the CDC is so reasonable and that the IDSA is so dogmatic??

Excuse me, I'm German! [Wink]

Okay, I see: they have changed their opinion by now:
http://www.cdc.gov/lyme/diagnosistreatment/Treatment/prolonged/index.html

http://www.cdc.gov/lyme/postLDS/index.html

Now who would have guessed THAT??

That is correct -- the CDC used to believe in prolonged treatment in some cases, but no longer does.

That's pretty crazy! When did they change their opinion?

Anyway, I have read that the CDC is involved in the development of the new blood test which is already available now here in Germany:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22742788

Ann Agric Environ Med. 2012 Jun 27;19(2):203-7.

259 patients ---------

In 71.5% of patients, IgM against flagellin protein (p41) of B. burgdorferi sensu stricto (s.s.) was found.

For IgG, the most frequently detected antibodies were found against the p41 protein of B. burgdorferi s.s. (64.8%)

and the recombinant variable surface antigens (VlsE) (49%).

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22763966

Alpha fucosidase and beta galactosidase in serum of a Lyme disease patients as a possible marker of accelerated senescence - a preliminary study.

That would be Poland saying were tired of your stupid and criminal.
