    This article sheds more light in the recent discovery from Dr. Kim Lewis at Northeastern, adding that they are going into animal testing soon, which could lead to verifiable protocols to treat persistent Lyme.

    Promising stuff, but it won't necessarily get rid of the Borrelia that are located intracellularly, will it? I think liposomal antibiotics will be the crucial in this regard.

    Before I fell ill I thought that, apart from super bugs, we had bacteria's number, whereas now I realise that we haven't learnt how to defeat them, but only how to stop them killing people quickly.
