    Just wondered if anyone has any fresh anecdotes of Lyme patients improving with stem cell treatment ?
    Especially from those of you in the US who might know more about this.

    There is this recovery story of Amy Scher who went to India for stem cell therapy.

    I found this Mexican clinic on the web who offer treatment for Lyme. http://a1stemcells.com/treatment/lyme-disease .

    It is hard to find convincing evidence from patients that this is a really effective therapy. Theoretically it sounds good, but there doesn't seem to be many success stories on the web.

    I would appreciate it if anyone has any updated knowledge on where this type of treatment is headed in the future regards Lyme disease.

    Maybe you could outline some of the ethical issues surrounding the embryonic stem cell treatment from the above Mexican clinic as well.

    I can find zero research on this particular therapy for Lyme.

    The above clinic is advertising for patients to participate in Stem Cell clinical trials for Lyme disease. Something tells me this wont get published in The Lancet.

    It might help as supportive therapy but you still need something else to target the infection.
