- Excellent and very brave of them to publish that. It could not have been easy and they will get a lot of grief from the IDSA for that but, whew!, finally. Truth is coming out.
Not sure how the wording will be interpreted, there seems some "wiggle room" -- still, amazing for that to be a neurology journal.
Still, imagine if they went further to include other tick borne infections . . . or if they were to follow the poor person who gets only that short course of doxycycline but later could very likely see symptoms return & become chronic because the treatment of just doxy pushed it into the cyst form to just hide for a while.
Wonder if they will keep in touch with that patient. And I hope that patient finds an ILADS doctor in they have the slightest issues in the future.
Still, kudos for the courage of the writers and publishers of that. It's a huge step forward.
Finally, some truth coming about lyme coming out of a university medical center. -

Keebler, I couldn't have said it better! You are right on!
We need more of this kind of publication out there and yes, it is risky because the IDIOTS go after anyone who dares to put the truth out there like a rabid bull dog after a bone, which is so shameful.
I am caught up in some deep projects, but would love to know someone would go to various ALS sites and share this with them.
