Jim Wilson

Health committee  Do you mean, if I knew I had a tick attachment, what would I do at that point?

Jim Wilson

Health committee  I would insist on antibiotics before they identify the tick, before they have the tick tested, or certainly before an ELISA is run, because the human does not build antibodies to this bacteria until four to six weeks after infection. By that time, the disease is disseminated into

Health committee  The point also is that most people whom we hear from do not know they have had a tick attachment; they are completely unaware that they have encountered a tick. If you look at the biology of the tick and what they're capable of, you learn that if a tiny little nymph tick crawls

Health committee  There hasn't been anything that they've been able to relate genetically. There is some suspicion that there is a genetic tendency in people who experience this chronic form of Lyme that is more difficult to treat. But such a huge percentage of the population carries that gene, wh

Health committee  My understanding is that it was going to be amended to just reflect best practices.
