Dr. Betty Maloney comments on the recent CDC paper  https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/66/wr/mm6623a3.htm?s_cid=mm6623a3_e that uses 5 anecdotal cases to announce IV treatments for Lyme/MSIDS patients are too dangerous.

“Patients and their physicians are not the problem.  Poor diagnostic tests and the pathogen itself, are.”  

“Hopefully, one day, we will see constructive CDC papers on topics that can truly reduce the numbers of patients burdened with chronic Lyme disease.”
