How herpes and other dormant viruses 'reactivate' explained in new study


Scientists are mystified by the mechanism that 'reactivates' dormant viruses such as herpes. Now, a new study suggests interactions with other infections may be responsible.

Sadly, North Carolina resident Jim Young lost his battle with late stage Lyme


Sadly, North Carolina resident Jim Young lost his battle with late stage Lyme. After deteriorating for approximately 5 years, Jim was diagnosed with ALS. Jim later discovered he actually had Lyme Disease and was able to fight back for years (far longer than the 6 month death sentence he had been handed).
Jim bravely shared his story in May 2013 to promote Lyme Disease awareness month: http://abc11.com/archive/9121538/
FOX News also picked up his story last August:http://video.foxnews.com/v/2584466440001/living-with-lyme-disease/?playlist_id=163197
FLDA Note: We pay our deepest condolences to Jim, his beautiful wife Erica, two children, friends and other family members. Unfortunately, in some cases, patients suffer permanent damage due to delays in diagnosis, particularly for those with an ALS presentation.
Sweet Jim was not able to make it. He passed away on Friday morning. We are all so very sad. So very very sad.

Innate immunity networks during infection with Borrelia burgdorferi

Mississippi researchers report they've detected various Borrelia spirochetes in Gulf Coast ticks from Mississippi including Borrelia turcica, a species associated with reptiles.

Mississippi researchers report they've detected various Borrelia spirochetes in Gulf Coast ticks from Mississippi including Borrelia turcica, a species associated with reptiles.
We found Gulf Coast ticks as far inland as Atlanta during tick collecting projects, so don't be fooled by the name. Gulf coast ticks are known to bite humans and have been associated with Rickettsia parkeri cases. More research is needed to determine whether these ticks transmit Borreliosis, as well.
Remember, nobody knows everything about ticks and the diseases they carry. There's not a tick bite that's a good tick bite. Protect yourself.



Is there a Lyme disease and Autism connection? Many believe that there is,at least in some cases.


Autism alert!
<<This paper proposes that some children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in the United States have undiagnosed Lyme disease and different testing criteria used by commercial laboratories may be producing false negative results. Two testing protocols will be evaluated; first, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA) approved two-tiered Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA) or Immunofluorescence Assay (IFA) followed by an IgM and/or IgG Western Blot test. Second, a clinical diagnosis (flu like symptoms, joint pain, fatigue, neurological symptoms, etc.) possibly followed by a Western Blot with a broader criteria for positive bands [1] . The hypothesis proposes that the former criteria may be producing false negative results for some individuals diagnosed with an ASD. Through an online survey parents of 48 children who have a diagnosis of an ASD and have been diagnosed with Lyme disease were asked to fill out the Autism Treatment Evaluation Checklist (ATEC) before they started antibiotic therapy and after treatment. Of the 48 parents surveyed 45 of them (94%) indicated their child initially tested negative using the two-tiered CDC/IDSA approved test. The parents sought a second physician who diagnosed their child with Lyme disease using the wider range of Western Blot bands. The children were treated with antibiotics and their scores on the ATEC improved. Anecdotal data indicated that some of the children achieved previously unattained developmental milestones after antibiotic therapy began. Protein bands OSP-A and/or OSP-B (Western Blot band 31) and (Western Blot band 34) were found in 44 of 48 patients. These two bands are so specific to Borrelia burgdorferi that they were targeted for use in vaccine trials, yet are not included in the IDSA interpretation of the Western Blot.>

Webinar on Persistence of ‎LymeDisease‬


Important CDC Webinar on Persistence of LymeDisease‬
On May 22, 2014 the Department of Health and Human Services - including the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the Centers for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration - held a "Special Webinar on Lyme Disease and Borrelia Persistence" that proved to be very interesting. They invited folks to listen in and people could send in questions, too. There were some really great questions submitted.
Speaker lineup was:
Dr. Stephen Barthold, University of California, Davis
The Comparative Biology of Borrelia burgdorferi Persistence
Dr. Linda Bockenstedt, Yale School of Medicine
Design of Animal Studies to Assess Borrelia burgdorferi Persistence
Dr. Monica Embers, Tulane University
Studies of B. burgdorferi Persistence in the Nonhuman Primate
Dr. Adriana Marques, NIH, NIAID

THE HUNT FOR A WITCH WITH LYME DISEASE


Delle Donne out Indefinitely With Lyme Disease


From the Associated Press: "Chicago Sky forward Elena Delle Donne won't be in the lineup against the New York Liberty on Friday night, sidelined indefinitely with a recurrence of Lyme disease.
The team announced Friday afternoon at shoot-around that Delle Donne had returned home to Delaware. The reigning rookie of the year missed five games this month because of the disease before playing against Connecticut on Wednesday. She scored 13 points in the loss, but said she wasn't feeling well after the game."

Another person writes ignorant, misleading comments about Lyme disease, this time on Forbes.com.
"It is very easily treated with antibiotics. Despite the hype coming from some patients and doctors, once Lyme is treated it is cured. There is no such thing as “chronic Lyme disease”.
He obviously hasn't done his homework by actually READING the published studies which completely prove him wrong.
He didn't warn that Lyme disease is endemic in other regions and wrote other misleading comments, as well.
How many people will read this and actually believe the guy knows what he's talking about? What ever happened to real reporters and integrity in journalism?
