Lyme disease needs randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, peer-reviewed current research performed by disinterested medical researchers and scientists.
To allow researchers that have a vested interest in the outcome of the research to control the resulting information leads to disasters such as the tobacco industry debacle that played out from the 1940s to the 1980s.
It would be wonderful if we could direct you to scientists with years of successful experience with Lyme disease but there is no such thing. Because of the unprecedented confusion around this disease, clinical practise is still experimental and most research is suspect.
We do, however, have doctors and scientists who have done research and who have clinical experience with Lyme sufferers who have published their papers and made them available.
Follow the links to the left for lists of important, current research compiled by medical personnel with clinical experience with Lyme disease sufferers. We tried to find the most current research. We give more weight to research published after 2006, the year that the IDSA reaffirmed their own 1996 guidelines without attempting to review research not performed by their interest group.
We also tried to avoid research where there were clearly conflicts of interest amongst the researchers that render the conclusions questionable.
