My doc has sent my blood to the vet doing this research. Still waiting as animals have first dibs!! Doc said the results will take months.

20% of my doctor's patients are testing positive with the new testing method.

My doctor also got a grant with this vet to validate the new test for human diagnosis.

Crazy stuff...
14 years undiagnosed Lyme. I had a bulls-eye rash following a camping trip to NC in 1994. Swollen knees and replapsing and remitting vertigo followed for the next 14 years. All Lyme tests negative. Could possibly be B. lonestari due to being bit in the South.
Just began treatment with low dose Minocycline and Benicar on 12/08.
TGF B1 and C4a very high indicating inflammation.

Thanks, I am very excited as well.

I feel hope for the first time with my illness.

My uneducated guess is that it would not show up on available Bartonella tests, and that it needs to be tested for separately.  Just as it is possible there are other strains of Babesiosis that there are no testing for at this time.
