    The Lyme community is pretty excited about this latest mice study confirming the persistance of spirochetes within collagen-rich tissue and testing positive on PCR in spite of being culture negative after abx therapy. This is but one study that will probably require further replication of results, but we're getting one step closer to proving the IDSA wrong about chronic Lyme and tearing up those restrictive CDC guidelines. :roll-laugh:

    I found this on rheumatology.org, the study uses the term 'antibiotic resistant pediatric  Lyme arthritis':

    There is another one there, too.  Both are from Wilmington, DE.

    This one is about intra-articular joint injections in pediatric patients with antibiotic resistant Lyme arthritis.  This is new terminology to me, sounds like chronic Lyme, right?

     

    Grrr…same deal, copy/paste from the second 'http'.  It makes a link in the 'reply' box, but won't post as one, sorry!

    Suzanne – Try http://www.tinyurl.com.  It works like a charm to make tidy from messy. I have it on my links toolbar.

    Here is an example from one of your two links: http://tinyurl.com/29oxh3
