    Great article on the research studies on Lyme persistence and biofilms by researcher Eva Sapi. She's interviewed in the article, and had some very interesting things to say:
    • She suffered Lyme disease herself.

    • Like Dr. McDonald, she has been able to prove that borrelia spirochetes create biofilms that protect them from antibiotics.

    • She's been testing several medicines and agents that would help dissolve the borrelia biofilm, so antibiotics can penetrate it and more effectively kill the spirochetes. One of them is a new abx being tested called Curza.

    • She also speaks of bee venom and the natural sweetener Stevia as agents that proved effective (very interesting).

    • She was told by her school research authorities when she decided to focus her research on Lyme, “that asking certain questions was not allowed” within the tight-knit community of Lyme disease researchers. She worked around these constrains by researching Lyme at a CT state level.

    • Despite that, and her peer-reviewed validated studies, she organized a conference that other researchers in the field tried to shut down because of fears that it would propagate her way of thinking. (Yeah, I wonder who those people that tried to censor her were...)

    I would also like to reproduce here a great reply to this article in the comments section of the New Haven Registrar.
    It's quite worth reading:

    Very well said indeed!

    wow , This is a real eye opener from another researcher speaking out on the misguided attitudes of Panelist on the IDSA. It's great to see some of the positive research going on in-spite of the IDSA.
