Carl Tuttle, a Lyme activist from New Hampshire, has written a letter to Dr. Klempner regarding the safety of the monoclonal antibody injection proposed to prevent Lyme Disease.

  1. There is no safety window to protect against infection. According to Dr. Burgdorfer who stated in 1999 that about 5-10% of ticks that are carrying Lyme have a systemic infection and have the disease already in their salivary glands and can transmit infection immediately.
  2.  There is no protection from blood transmission due to blood transfusion.
  3. It can not protect against transmission by feces, urine, or tick-excretes.
  4. It will not protect sexual transmission.
  5. It will not protect from congenital transmission. 28 Peer-Reviewed Studies
