Petition to Remove Outdated Lyme Treatment Guidelines from National Guidelines Clearinghouse

  [ 29 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • February 9, 2012


LymeDisease.org* has dedicated a page to an online petition requesting that the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) guidelines for medical treatment of Lyme disease be removed from the National Guidelines Clearinghouse list and be updated to reflect current research.

A key reason stated for the petition is that the current IDSA Lyme guidelines, established in 2006, do not recognize the possibility of persistent infection after initial 10 to 28 days of antibiotic treatment. Research since 2006 has found evidence that infection may persist after initial antibiotics where infection is established. (See for example "Aggressive antibiotic therapy could not kill all spirochetes in monkeys with disseminated Lyme disease," Posted Jan 15, 2012.)

Find the petition here - http://www.lymedisease.org/petitionscript/index.php.

The list of more than 12,690 signatures appears to be growing moment by moment – and though signers are required to provide some information to ensure validity, they can elect to remain anonymous by clicking a box.
