Re: Ticks blamed for horse deaths

So what killed the horses? RMSF? Lyme, Bart, Babs, etc, etc, etc, etc. Or is it in fact just speculation. I hate articles like this.

"Temporal Study of Immunoglobulin M Seroreactivity to Borrelia burgdorferi in Patients Treated for Lyme Borreliosis..."

Strange patterns on some of the WBs. Strange the low level/number for 39 kDa.

Only variable antigen for Bb that I am aware of is VlsE.
