Re: LTT for Borrelia Detects Active Lyme Borreliosis

I only skimmed the paper. On page 10. A Borrelia-LTT test that has become negative is not evidence, however, that a Borrelia infection has been cured. This was demonstrated in follow-up studies over a one year period in patients with late borreliosis. Borrelia that persist in spite of antibiotic tre...

Re: Chronic persistent Lyme Disease (LD) or chronic Borrelio

Chuck, I agree, the scenario I suggested is likely to be a rare occurence. Even if it happens, less than 5% of the ticks are said to have the severe infection that leads to Bb in the saliva before feeding. It seems clear that the usual way the infection works is for spirochetes to move to the saliv...
