I also like the discription of persistent lyme bacteria by Kim Lewis. - Lewis had long researched other hard-to-eradicate infections. “What we found, and published over the years,” he says, “is that in chronic infections, you have a small subpopulation of dormant, spore-like cells — these are called persisters,” he says. “So when antibiotics kill off the regular cells, persisters survive to live another day.” Cudos to Doctor Lewis, perhaps his University work will be excepted as easy in the medical field as ilads. He is doing great work.
What he does not offer is that the persistent cells are hiding in other cells that are waiting to reinfest when the conditions are right. There is a long way to go in this field including getting past the Biofilm barrier that has become a friend to the invader cells such as Lyme or TB or the like.
