I am a bit confused. I don't understand how it can be specific for Borrellia if it is a protein band of ALL flagellan proteins. I would think that other flagellan proteins besides Borrellia could cause a positive result. I think that I am getting hung up on the word specific. Specific to me means reacting to only one thing. I need to go grab my dictionary!!
