Good luck Paula, I hope you make headway. Glad to supply references if requested. My personal goal is to see a tax-payer paid human pathology study to detect persistent Borrelia in the human brain especially post antibiotics. The MN Health department (Mike Osterholm) told me such a study was unnecessary because the blood tests were so accurate. I guess reaching a conclusion before the study saves time and money!
