Police threaten girl's charity ride under new laws


(Australia) Police threaten girl's charity ride under new laws

"A CHARITY motorbike ride will go ahead today despite police warnings that any outlaw bikies who participate would risk being arrested and put the event in jeopardy."

"Sunshine Coast resident Marc Revere has organised the event to raise funds for 20-year-old Lucy McGrail, a family friend who is suffering Lyme disease."

"Unfortunately, the innocent event has been caught up in potential pitfalls due to Queensland's strict anti-bikie laws."

Under Our Skin | The Hidden Story of Lyme Disease


After an email from a disgruntled Lyme patient ended in the hands of Dr. Allen C. Steere and Dr. Gary Wormser, lead authors of the IDSA Lyme guidelines, Dr. Wormser forwarded it with the header “Lyme Disease IV antibiotic treatment, Insurance Fraud in NC,” to the CDC, who in turn forwarded it to Curtis Ellis, Director of Investigations, North Carolina Medical Board. Once an investigation was opened, the board was at liberty to pull all of Dr. Jemsek’s Lyme patient files, looking for violations of the IDSA “standard of care,” which takes on the force of law in North Carolina, even though Dr. Jemsek followed the alternative ILADS Lyme guidelines. (ILADS guidelines cite evidence that’s supports this position: “The duration of therapy should be guided by clinical response, rather than by an arbitrary (i.e., 30 day) treatment course.” In the end, Dr. Jemsek’s license was suspended but “stayed” for a year, meaning he could continue to practice medicine under tight restrictions. However, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina seized the opportunity to follow up on the medical board’s judgment with a $20 million lawsuit, for Dr. Jemsek’s alleged “unnecessary” antibiotic treatments.

Many Lyme patients have altered flora in their gut due to long-term antibiotic use. As science progresses, we are learning about more complications that can arise with an imbalance in the gut.

"The inflamed joints and systemic inflammation characteristic of early rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have been linked with an altered pattern of gut microbial colonization, suggesting a new explanation for autoimmunity and having potential implications for treatment, researchers reported."

"The clinical implication of this is that if we can find ways to manipulate the intestinal microbiome, we may be able to have an impact on a number of diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis," said Gail Hecht, MD, the chief of gastroenterology at Loyola University in Chicago, who wasn't involved in the study."

The Vitamin D–antimicrobial Peptide Pathway and Its Role in Protection against Infection


Vitamin D PLEASE NOTE!!!

"Suppression of the adaptive immune system ... by vitamin D [is] probably beneficial for conditions that involve autoimmunity;... however, it could prove detrimental for some infections." [page 2].

High diversity of Borrelia species found in the ticks


High diversity of Borrelia species found in the ticks

Seven different Borrelia species were identified by sequence analysis of the 5S-23S and 16S-23S IGS (Table 1). B. afzelii was the predominant species and was detected in 50% of all ticks containing Borrelia, followed by B. garinii (19%), B. valaisiana (7%), B. burgdorferi ss (4%), B. miyamotoi (2%), B. spielmanii (1%), B. lusitaniae (1%), mixed infection of Borrelia species (1%), and 15% were untypeable.

B. miyamotoi in Europe!


B. miyamotoi in Europe!

As expected for ticks collected in Alsace, a French region with high rates of Lyme disease, we also identified B. afzelii, B. garinii, and B. burgdorferi s.s., the three human pathogenic species known to circulate in France [34]. Interestingly, we also detected sequences from B. miyamotoi, which is responsible for relapsing fever in Russia, and which was recently detected in the USA [35]. The presence of B. miyamotoi DNA was confirmed by real-time PCR. Even though sequences from this bacteria have previously been amplified from I. ricinus in Sweden, France and Slovakia [21], [36], it has never thus far been associated with disease in Europe.
