Hello all. I was wondering if you had any studies or research papers to share with me on the existence and treatment of Chronic Lyme's disease? I'm attempting to raise awareness online, and having legitimate sources would help a lot. I have a few, but finding useful research is proving difficult.

Thanks!

My current list for anyone else seeking to compile useful sources: The top one is the most recent and groundbreaking.

these pasted earlier are just the newest ones. however you know there are over 700 peer reviewed articles showing persistence/chronic lyme presence. the NGO created by doctors treating lyme, called ILADS is keeping a compiled updated list of this

www.ilads.org/ilads_news/2017/list-of-700-articles-citing-chronic-infection-associated-with-tick-borne-disease-compiled-by-dr-robert-bransfield/

but 700 articles may not be enough for your audience....

I've been informed that MDPI is a predatory publishing site, so the research being posted there doesn't lend as much credibility as I had hoped. I wish there was better information on these diseases out there.

You have to ask yourself what are you trying to prove. Persistent cells? Long term effect? How does it differ from post treatment lyme? Yes Ilads has 700 but you need to find quality studies. Look at New England Journal of medicine. What studies have conflicts of interest ? What studies have rebuttals? What studies are vitro and don't relate to people? Then you will be left with solid studies. Start with John Hopkins newest then look at Tufts and BE. Another thing to look at for if you are trying to prove something to a audience is don't quote 20 studies from the same author.
