Future Possibilities and Speculations about IPT
by Chris Duffield

        Typically caught from a bite from a tick, Lyme disease is a spirochete bacterial infection that can bring a wide variety of symptoms, from fever  to fatigue to dizziness.  There is a raging controversy (New York Times May 23, 2000, D1,10) over whether or not Lyme disease symptoms can persist after a standard 30 to 60 day course of antibiotic treatment.  More conservative doctors believe that such treatment works in all cases, and that if symptoms persist, some other disease is the cause.  Other doctors, and patients groups, believe that Lyme infection can persist, and may require long-term antibiotic treatment.

        At IPTQ I do not want to enter into this controversy.  However, I do want to suggest that IPT-boosted antibiotic treatment may be a faster way to get results in treatment of Lyme infection.  And that it may be a better way to treat persistent Lyme infection, if it exists.  IPT had its first success in treating syphilis, another spirochete disease, by enhancing drug delivery into the central nervous system (CNS), where disease organisms were hiding.  This may be useful in treating Lyme disease as well.  

I have heard rumors of an unnamed doctor trying insulin potentiation of antibiotics for suspected Lyme disease, and getting promising results.  We need more than that if we are to know.
