THROUGH CHALLENGE and Lyme Disease

Lyme and Lizards

  I Awoke to an article by a FB reader scientist researcher integrative medicine person this morning. It is very worth the read.
I lifted this from Doctor sussers Lizard story. at:
http://www.murraysussermd.com/lyme-disease-and-lizards-los…/ ----------------------- I wanted to write this blog about Lizards because of some comments I received from the California Lyme Support Group about the Western Fence Lizard (Sceloporus occidentals) and its connection to Ly...me disease.
Lyme Disease and Lizards Los Angeles
About 16 years ago a number of studies showed that a protein in Western Fence Lizard’s blood killed the Lyme disease bacteria in the gut of an infected immature western black-legged tick. The tick then molts (matures) into a disease-free adult tick. This was especially true when ticks fed around the lizard’s ears.[1] Interestingly enough, as far as my limited research has shown, there is no work going on to produce a therapeutic agent to help humans fight Lyme disease by isolating the protein from the Western Fence Lizard. This article deserves some Lyme Disease Association, Inc. (LDA) assoc. and Lyme Research Alliance time read.
