Reactivation and immune evasion of Borrelia infection

http://www.lymenet.de/literatur/niches.htm#Bergstrom, 2005

Abstract

"The aim of this project is to gain knowledge of the interactions between Borrelia spirochetes and the host during infection. We are using both the Lyme borreliosis and the relapsing fever borreliosis spirochetes as model organisms. We are investigating how the Borrelia spirochetes can circumvent the immunological defence, how they spread form the infectious focus, reach various sites in the mammalian body, and how the spirochetes can live in these tissues at a dormant state, reactivate, return to the circulatory system and cause acute disease again. We also aim to characterize and define the components involved in the interactions between Borrelia and human cells, including the cells of the innate and adaptive immunity."

This is 'older' information but I continually go back in time for information about Lyme---- back in the days when denial and division wasn't quite as rampant. There will be 'thoughts' that may have been disproved or discarded but that' what science does, folks. Everything is grist for it's mill.

To read more really interesting (or mind-numbing, depending on ones love for information) articles go to:

Thanks for this -- I agree, it's good to ponder and try to see if we've veered off in a less helpful direction.
