Channel 7 news did a piece on LD yesterday.  They spoke with Dr. C. from Tampa.  It's incouraging to see it mentioned in the news.

07 Summer pos. WB, diag with LD, 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 
Dr. Zhang's protocol stopped after 6 months symptoms returned.  Started Buhner's protocol May 2009

I heard that WBAL-TV in Baltimore will do a lyme segment at 11:00 p.m. this evening. It must be the popular season for bringing it up.

The WBAL report was last night - and encouraging. Dr. Aucott who was cited in the show believes the medical community should get past the controversy and address the issues of what to do with LD patients who don't get well after early or initial antibiotic treatments. I googled for info and found he works with Johns Hopkins and is president of a lyme research organization. Since I don't know the forum's rules about posting links I won't do that, but if you are interested you can google it yourself.
