"A new blog entry at Joanne's Cottage Garden shows that there is evidence supporting what ILADS (International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society) says that the blood tests are unreliable and for some patients long term antibiotics and repeat courses of antibiotics are sometimes necessary."
Evidence is presented to the IDSA (Infectious Diseases Society of America) Lyme Disease Review Panel at their hearing on July 30th 2009. Details and links into useful research at http://joanne-orangecottages.blogspot.com/
Steven Phillips presents 83 articles of research supporting ILADS claim of seronegativity and persistent infection. He sights 18 co authors who were involved in the writing of the 2006 IDSA Lyme Disease Guidelines which does not support seronegativity or persistent infection after a short course of antibiotics.

Lyme cases have been linked to ME, CFS, Fibromyaligia,Arthritis, Neurological, Parkinsons, MS, ALS, Alzheimers, Autism, Psychiatric
