Thanks, yeah, minocycline seems the best at crossing the BBB. Does it treat all forms of borrelia? (free, cysts, biofilms). If not, any other drug that both crosses the BBB and treat resistant forms of borrelia?
I don't think it's good for biofilms and cysts.
I've read Tinidazole (for cyst form) effectively passes thru b/b barrier.
I take Xylitol and Lactoferrin for biofilms. I don't know about
b/b barrier penetration with them.
