"The evidence continues to mount that Chronic Lyme Disease (CLD) exists and must be addressed by the medical communityif solutions are to be found. Four National Institutes of Health (NIH) trials validated the existence and severity of CLD. Despitethe evidence, there are physicians who continue to deny the existence and severity of CLD, which can hinder efforts to find asolution. Recognizing CLD could facilitate efforts to avoid diagnostic delays of two years and durations of illness of 4.7 to 9 yearsdescribed in the NIH trials. The risk to society of emerging antibiotic-resistant organisms should be weighed against the societalrisks associated with failing to treat an emerging population saddled with CLD. The mixed long-term outcome in children couldalso be examined. Once we accept the evidence that CLD exists, the medical community should be able to find solutions. Medicalprofessionals should be encouraged to examine whether: (1) innovative treatments for early LD might prevent CLD, (2) earlydiagnosis of CLD might result in better treatment outcomes, and (3) more effective treatment regimens can be developed for CLDpatients who have had prolonged illness and an associated poor quality of life" Cited from the peer reviewed article, Cameron DJ.
