Re: Persistence of Bb after antibiotic treatment (murine model)

Just parking this here so that I can find it again and also refer to it. I find the term 'persistence' to be more productive than 'chronic' when searching for credible research on PubMed or Google Scholar. Some authors may be reluctant to use the word 'chronic' because of the political debate that a...

Re: A question about treatment for babesia duncani

The strains of Babesia formerly known as Ca1-5, Wa1-3, and Mo1-? were recently included in the newly named genotype B.duncani. Igenex has separate tests for microti v duncani and I suspect that they do not cross react or why would Igenex off distinctly separate tests? and because I had two negative ...

Re: A question about treatment for babesia duncani

Just my experience, FWIW; The only distinct symptom of Babs that I recognized was mid day sweats, not night sweats. Nick at Igenex recommended that since I was in New Mexico I should be tested for B.microti. However maybe Nick didn't recognize that New Mexico is a western state. (Almost all U.S. sta...

Re: IV VANCOMYCIN- I have questions PLEASE

Easy on first. I'm not a big fan of vancomycin. When I started looking at it because of recommendations on LNusa some years ago I didn't get any farther than its molecular weight of ~1500 and with no noted lipophilicity or influx mechanism I discarded it as an option for treating neuroborreliosis.
