Beviset för kronisk borrelia: biofilm!

Dr. Alan MacDonald berättar i en intressant artikel om svårigheterna med att få ut vetenskapliga studier som visar att kronisk borrelia finns.

”The most important milestone happened in November 2012 with the long-awaited publication of the PLOS ONE article on In Vitro Biofilms of Borrelia Burgdorferi.

It took six years of tedious and gut-wrenching work to get the article into a prestigious journal, PLOS ONE.  The acceptance for the article to be published was, like some births, not an easy delivery. The original manuscript reviews required mandatory revisions – non-negotiable revisions. The most onerous of these was the directive by the editorial staff  to remove any and all language from the manuscript which  connected the significance of biofilms ofBorrelia  to human medicine, human disease, and to Lyme disease specifically. They also required us to remove any and all language relating to attitudes toward the proper treatment of Lyme disease and related Borrelia infections. We acceded to these demands.

Why would PhD reviewers be at all interested in MD-type concerns? Here the existing politics provide an answer.

None of the three reviewers was an IDSA-aligned person. All of the reviewers, as far as we could determine, were European microbiologists with special life experience in biofilm biology of other non-Borrelia microbes.

The sticky wicket about biofilms is that biofilms of the infectious type are ALWAYS a marker of CHRONIC INFECTION.

Chronic Lyme borreliosis was then and in 2013 still is a much disputed entity.”

  1. the most important part ”None of the three reviewers was an IDSA-aligned person. All of the reviewers, as far as we could determine, were European microbiologists with special life experience in biofilm biology of other non-Borrelia microbes.”

    scientists who are EXPERTS in biofilms and NOT on the side of IDSA didnt want them to state that what they found in the lab had any meaning to humans with Lyme or what it means for treating Lyme..and IMO rightfully so. I think there is not enough provable information about IF and how or why film form in a person with Lyme. and there is even LESS about what to do about it…so far all of the treatments for films Ive read have zero evidence for them.
    we have to be careful about taking some information and applying it too widely.

  2. also please know that eva sapi’s results are often questioned..it seems that no other lab can reproduce her findings! thats very important. because if ONLY Sapi sees these films and no one else can confirm, then they may as well not exist.. and so far ONLY sapi has claimed to see a film on biopsy, and not more than one p[atient ( maybe 2)>

    we cant attach too much importance to results that arent proven
