New Pathogen Discovered By Researchers Who Discovered Lyme – But Was Not Reported
Bay Area Lyme Foundation Responds to News Related to Initial Studies of Lyme Disease
Portola Valley, CA, October 12, 2016 – Bay Area Lyme Foundation, an organization dedicated to making Lyme disease easy to diagnose and simple to cure, is deeply disturbed by the news that researchers involved in the initial discoveries of Lyme disease omitted critical information related to additional bacteria that may have contributed to illness in early cases. This information was revealed in a story today in STAT News titled “The ‘Swiss Agent’: Long forgotten research unearths new mystery about Lyme disease.”
This new development clearly points to a critical need to reexamine much of the current orthodoxy in Lyme disease.
