It took them years to do proper autopsies for this too.

Link talks about the keet that causes syphilis.

"In 1917 Julius Wagner-Jauregg discovered that infecting paretic patients with malaria could halt the progression of general paresis."

Ongoing brain inflammation is NOT GOOD.

Malaria triggers a FEVER, shakes (EXTREME!), etc.

I've SEEN it re-occur.

MANY years ago, when I was a nurse on a med-surg unit (later I switched to OB), I will never ever forget a patient who was shaking so bad the bed literally moved all around the room. He had to be in leather restraints while getting anti-malarial treatment.

Malaria:

Under "treatment" see reoccurrences.

I don't think infecting patients with malaria to treat paresis is a good idea (1917).

Now...about "heat"/fever...

This is a defensive move to fight an infection.

When Bb infects a cell, our body sends in "de-icers"...NaCl and CaCl.

(MgCL is also a "de-icer".)

OR...we can "heat" the infected cells another way...photon therapy = energy transfer.

Does the syphilis spirochete have the ability to REBUILD its cell walls?

Just because Pen. works for the syphilis spirochete does not nec. mean it will work for Bb. They are different pathogens.

"But what of the relatives of B. burgdorferi?

Perhaps one of the most infamous of these is Treponema pallidum, the bacterium that causes syphilis.

In contrast to Lyme disease, syphilis is not a modern affliction; it was first recognized in the 15th century in Europe.

It is similar to B. burgdorferi in that it is a spirochete with a relatively small genome and requires a host to survive;

however, at the genomic level, the two organisms are not very closely related to each other at all."
