    I am reluctant to venture whether this article struck me as biased or revisionist, or not. (It does.)

    I would hope the prospect of a new OspA vaccine, waiting in the wings, had little to do with the article's existence. (Personally, I suspect it has at least a tiny bit to do with it.)

    Sadly I have become very suspicious due go my medical experiences these past ten years.

    The copy is pretty much a good indicator. Authors are human and sometimes they manipulate even when they should not. Usually, they try to hide that, or at least take a stab at nuance.

    I couldn't find much nuance in this piece, :)

    If I wanted to go about promoting a new vaccine without proclaiming my efforts as PR, I might consider approaching it from the vantage of an ostensibly disinterested review...
