Excellent that you posted this info. Thank you so much!!!

I'm adding another list that has notes from our docs that I've picked up on over the years. I'm not swift enough to combine the two lists right now- brain frogs- but it can be found here.

You're welcome and thanks for the Maryland Lyme link. They have a great site.

Interesting that band 41 can be due to oral spirochetes unrelated to Lyme. And band 66 can be due to E. Coli. That's new to me.
