This research article is the first of its kind, in that no one has ever summarized the proof that Chronic Lyme Disease exists before in this type of format.

The article presents several findings and pieces of data from research and studies related to Chronic Lyme Disease, including but not limited to the following issues; diagnosis, current limitations of and costs for treatment, the severity of symptoms, and mixed long-term outcome for children with the disease. Dr. Cameron includes research from his own practice, 32% of a consecutive case series of Lyme disease cases (confirmed by an ELISA and 5 or more positive bands on a IgG Western blot) had an average treatment delay of 1.8 years. Of these, 60% conformed to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention epidemiological criteria, presenting with a rash, Bell’s palsy, or arthritis, yet there was still a diagnostic delay. Patients in this case series were significantly more likely to fail their initial antibiotic treatment since they had delayed treatment. Dr. Cameron also addresses the risk to society of emerging antibiotic-resistant organisms – the fact this should be weighed against the societal risks associated with failing to treat an emerging population saddled with Chronic Lyme Disease. He believes once we acknowledge and accept the evidence that Chronic Lyme Disease exists, the medical community will be able to focus on developing solutions for this debilitating disease.
This research article is the first of its kind, in that no one has ever summarized the proof that Chronic Lyme Disease exists before in this type of format. In addition, no one has focused on the consequences of denying that Chronic Lyme Disease exists, or on the opportunities if one accepts that Chronic Lyme Disease exists.
