Here's a little tidbit I found in a study of the "nicotinic (niacin) transport system"
"These lines of evidence suggest that the transport system of lomefloxacin and ofloxacin in rat erythrocytes is common with that of a water-soluble vitamin, nicotinic acid, to which quinolones are structurally analogous."
Notice that last part....the quinolones antibiotic group are structurally analogous to Niacin. Many of us here have taken antibiotics belonging to this group for our Lyme. Levaquin is one that I know is in this group. Cipro is another.
