Considering Dapsone For Persistent Lyme
Lyme disease is a tick-borne, multisystemic disease caused by Borrelia burgdorferi. Standard treatments for early Lyme disease include short courses of oral antibiotics but relapses often occur after discontinuation of treatment. Several studies have suggested that ongoing symptoms may be due to a highly antibiotic-resistant form of B. burgdorferi called biofilms. Recent clinical studies reported the successful use of Dapsone in combination therapy for the treatment of Lyme disease.
