    I don't visit this Lyme desease forum much, I got diagnosed with CFS+FMS, but I found this and I hope something will come out of it to help those of you with Lyme.

    Sounds like they're trying to stir up some hype for a non-medical commercial product.

    Also a bit odd that they seem to say that treating Lyme with antibiotics causes chronic Lyme.

    Yeah, this makes me kind of suspicious too. I looked online and there are a lot of sheep placenta products in many forms (oral, transdermal, shots, etc.). It seems like we would know if it helped lyme disease. Additionally, antibiotics do not cause chronic lyme disease. Hmmmm. I have no idea. But certainly placenta and cord stem cells are options that might be developed into treatments, so who knows. But it's interesting to read about anyway so thanks for posting it

    I tried to dig deeper yesterday and havn't found yet a Lyme patient who has used the stuff (MD junction, francophone lyme forums etc).

    I clicked on their clinical research page and it didn't link to anything.

    I clicked on their buy now link and this product product sells for 1700 dollars per 6 vials.

    This appears to be an advertising 'press release'.

    It sounds like marketing hype and an over all hoax product. Sorry man no offence to you, or your post. I just have an easy time sniffing out the bullshit products and protocols greedy marketers try and offer to desperate patients.
