Great to see the name of Dr. Jose Montoya in this study. If he's in it, then they are on to something good.
On the other hand, I'm surprised to see that the very controversial Allen Steere is attached to this project. He has been one of the most staunch advocates (and creators) of the official two-tiered test.
We also saw recently another staunch IDSA committee member, Auwaerter, taking part in Dr. Zhang's study on Lyme persistence.
Not sure what to make of this. Is the tide turning? Can they no longer keep denying the severity of Lyme in the face of so many peer-reviewed studies being published? Or is this a case of the rats leaving the sinking ship?
A couple of years from now, these people will start telling us that they have never, ever denied the severity and persistence of Lyme disease.
On the other hand, most of the members of the IDSA Lyme panel have often spoken from both sides of their mouth, subscribing to the official IDSA guidelines, but then holding patents and researching treatments and vaccines to treat "chronic Lyme". Hmmm...
The standard line is, "We were just working with the evidence we had at the time. There was no solid evidence then of persistence of Lyme disease. Now that there's evidence, we're 100% behind it." That completely ignores their efforts to undermine progress in the field, of course, but that always seems to get swept under the rug.
The same folks that prevented the Embers study with live monkeys from being published for 12 years!
(Yes, the famous Embers study that was published two years ago was funded in 1998 and completed in 2001)
