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.
- 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.
- There is no protection from blood transmission due to blood transfusion.
- It can not protect against transmission by feces, urine, or tick-excretes.
- It will not protect sexual transmission.
- It will not protect from congenital transmission. 28 Peer-Reviewed Studies http://home.comcast.net/~runagain/Congenital%20Transmission%20of%20Lyme.doc
