Here's a link to a story about
a doctor developing a new way to test for LD. I contacted him, and he is willing to test your blood as part of his study.
I just had a member that I sent the info to point out that it does say you will not get the results from the test. I didn't see the last 3 attachments (one had this info in it). You would be taking part in the study with no direct benefit to yourself ie: no diagnosis or test results.
Still an interesting story!

If you are interested let me know and I will send you the information he sent me (I already wrote and ask his permission to pass along his info).
2001 symptoms started:
Tingling in fingers and toes both sides, not tested at that time for LD
2007 Summer tested pos. WB, diagnosed with LD, tested neg for co-infections thru Igenex
Abx - Doxy 100mg 2x/day for 3 weeks (before diagnosis)
Amoxicillin 1gm 2x/day for 1 month
Amoxicillin 1gm 3x/day with Probenecid 500mg 2x/day 5 months
Currently on Dr. Zhang's protocol stopped Zhang's after 6 months symptoms returned. Started Buhner's protocol May 2009
