Better Health Guy reports back from ILADS conference here
I was only able to watch a small part through the live Webcast so it was great to read Scott Forsgren's summary.
The slides from the event are available for purchase here for a very reasonable $40. The DVDs (Friday's sessions) and CDs of the presentations can be obtained from ZenWorks Productions.
Below are just a tiny selection that caught my eye from Scott's excellent blog post.
Dr. Richard Horowitz proposed that Chronic Lyme is really MCIDS - Multiple Chronic Infectious Disease Syndrome
Dr. Joe Burrascano shared: New pathogens will likely continue to be discovered such as XMRV / HGRV
In chronic Lyme patients, 100% may be XMRV / HGRV positive
Eva Sapi, PhD talked about the many exciting projects that her team is doing:
They are looking for XMRV in ticks to see if the retrovirus may be transmitted by tick exposure
They did some excellent research showing Samento + Banderol + Serrapeptase (all from NutraMedix) had very significant biofilm eliminating effects
Dr. Joe Brewer spoke on the topic of XMRV:
In one autism study, all mothers tested were XMRV positive and many of them expressed symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia
In a small sample of MS (4), Parkinson's (1), and ALS (1) patients, 100% of those tested were positive for XMRV
In chronic Lyme disease, over 90% of those tested were positive for XMRV
During Q&A, Dr. Fishman acknowledged the politics involved in Lyme disease. He suggested that XMRV may be the pathway that we should pursue in order to benefit ourselves
