I didn't see this posted yet so just in case - from IDSA website:
"Feb. 2 - IDSA has convened a review panel to examine whether the Society’s Lyme Disease guidelines, published in 2006, should be revised or updated based on a rigorous review of the medical and scientific evidence on the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease.
The Review Panel is initiating a 60-day input period to allow the public to submit information to ensure that all points of view are taken into consideration. There will also be an
open public hearing to offer a forum for the presentation of relevant information on the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme Disease.
The 60-day public input period is now
I encourage everyone to talk to their LLMD's or others with medcial / scientific backgrounds to comment. Even letters from regular people referencing studies/research may prove helpful. I don't think this is the venue for letters re: personal experiences but thats up to anyone who wants to respond.
Note - there will also be a public meeting in Washington DC on Monday, April 27, 2009 (TBD
location) - a good time to organize and show support for Lyme and disgust at IDSA.
