this is a large project headed by Neil Spector at Duke, Monica Embers at Tulane (who just showed that borellia survives long term doxy treatment), Zhang at Johns Hopkins and Dr Steven Phillips, former head of Ilads and practicing LLMD...
...from Spector's facebook:
"We're very excited about
this new direction in Lyme disease research and development of a targeted, non-antibiotic treatment approach to Lyme and Bartonella as starters. I'm blessed to be working with a great team at Duke (Dr. Tim Haystead) and colleagues at Tulane (Dr. Monica Embers) and Johns Hopkins (Dr. Ying Zhang). Thanks to Dana Parish and Dr. Steven Phillips who are great friends and also colleagues contributing their insight into these diseases, and key members of our team. First and foremost, thank you to Steve and Alex Cohen who through their Foundation are supporting innovative research.
My dream of bringing researchers from other disciplines e.g. cancer research, basic immunology, drug development to change the way we approach Lyme disease and other devastating infectious diseases is finally coming to fruition . Fasten your seatbelts!
Please share so that others know that the status quo is no longer acceptable and change is in the works."
