Lyme disease challenge : Dr Horowitz




Dr Zhang from John Hopkins University just published an important article in PLoS One on innovative drug combinations for the treatment of Lyme disease.



Dr Zhang from John Hopkins University just published an important article in PLoS One on innovative drug combinations for the treatment of Lyme disease.
"Of studied drugs, daptomycin was the common element in the most active regimens when combined with doxycycline plus either beta-lactams (cefoperazone or carbenicillin) or an energy inhibitor (clofazimine). Daptomycin plus doxycycline and cefoperazone eradicated the most resistant microcolony form of B. burgdorferi persisters and did not yield viable spirochetes upon subculturing, suggesting durable killing that was not achieved by any other two or three drug combinations. These findings may have implications for improved treatment of Lyme disease, if persistent organisms or detritus are responsible for symptoms that do not resolve with conventional therapy. Further studies are needed to validate whether such combination antimicrobial approaches are useful in animal models and human infection". Research monies and grants are now needed ASAP to test out these drug combinations in clinical practice in order to relieve the suffering of those with Lyme-MSIDS.

Dr. Joseph Jemsek, Susan Green, Esq., Monte Skall, Gregg P. Skall, Esq., and Jacques Simon, Esq., salute the Take a Bite out of Lyme Challenge!
Joseph G. Jemsek, MD, FACP is Board Certified in Infectious Diseases. He began his clinical practice in Charlotte, NC where he diagnosed the first case of AIDS in NC in 1983, and subsequently devoted his practice to HIV care until 2006, establishing one of the largest private practices in the country while lecturing and publishing widely. For almost a decade in his early career, he also functioned as the first hospital epidemiologist in a private institution and was the designated infectious disease consultant for the Carolinas Medical Center heart transplant program. Dr. Jemsek is the namesake for the destination practice, the Jemsek Specialty Clinic, which operates out of Washington, DC and is exclusively devoted to the care of patients with Lyme Borreliosis Complex.
Dr. Jemsek was featured in the award winning documentary Under Our Skin and the sequel, Emergence. One particular quote from Emergence stands out:
"The lie is too big to confess at this point" - Dr. Joseph Jemsek
For anyone wanting to learn more about the Lyme Disease controversy, we highly recommend streaming Under Our Skin in its entirety.
Monte Skall, Gregg Skall and Susan Green have been tremendous advocates for the Lyme community through NatCapLyme.
