Treatment of Chronic Lyme – 51 Case Reports by Burton A Waisbren Sr MD
Dr Waisbren is a Founding Member of the Infectious Diseases Society of America. People in the field of Lyme disease research believe that Waisbren’s book may be the most important Lyme disease book written so far. It may close some of the gaps between the two schools of thought concerning the treatment of Lyme disease. What sets this book apart from other Lyme-related books are the credentials of the physician who wrote it: Dr Burton A Waisbren, MD, FACP, FIDSA, has been practicing medicine for over 57 years and has published research on Lyme disease in prestigious journals. In 51 Cases, he shares the treatment strategies and protocols that he utilized in 51 cases of chronic Lyme disease and he presents essays containing his professional analysis of the cases. Waisbren is a current Fellow of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and he is also one of its founding members. The IDSA is a prestigious physicians’ society that has generally taken the position that chronic Lyme disease is not a scientifically-proven medical condition, or at least, that it should not be treated with long-term antibiotics in most circumstances. Many believe that the IDSA’s position on this issue has negatively impacted the credibility of Lyme disease physicians who desire to help their patients with chronic Lyme disease. The IDSA’s policies have drawn fire from numerous people including politicians like Richard Blumenthal, US Senator from Connecticut and former Connecticut Attorney General.
Dr. Waisbren’s new book, Treatment of Chronic Lyme – 51 Case Reports and Essays in Their Regard explains that chronic Lyme disease is, in fact, a real medical condition which demands appropriate and aggressive treatment. Waisbren, remember, is one of the founding members of the IDSA itself. Waisbren’s book, together with other offerings for instance the film documentary, Under Our Skin, which won multiple awards, and other award-winning Lyme books, are important steps in helping Lyme sufferers gain recognition, a voice, and vindication in their desire to recover, get healed and live normal lives. Waisbren has 57 years of practicing medicine, a valuable contribution alone, however, his methodologies for treating Lyme disease will be useful to the physicians, researchers and patients who read his book.

Penicillin in Syphilis http://jama.ama-assn.org/content/134/18/1576.2.short
Since this article does not have an abstract, we have provided the first 150 words of the full text.
By Joseph Earle Moore, M.D., Associate Professor of Medicine and Adjunct Professor of Public Health Administration, the Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore. Fabrikoid. Price, $5. Pp. 319, with 57 illustrations. Charles C Thomas, 301-327 E. Lawrence Ave., Springfield, Ill., 1946.
With characteristic thoroughness Moore presents the essential points of penicillin therapy in easily understandable form. Those interested in the clinical use of penicillin will find the section on penicillin in early syphilis very valuable. The same applies to the chapters on syphilis in pregnancy, congenital syphilis, benign late syphilis, cardiovascular syphilis and ocular syphilis. Following a detailed discussion of treatment in these forms of syphilis the author gives a short, pertinent summary of results. Nearly half of the text is devoted to fundamental information on the chemistry, pharmacology, therapeutic activity and mode of action of penicillin. The section on the pharmacology of penicillin in the central nervous system contains timely advice, and the chapter on toxicity is of special interest to the practitioner. Those who plan to read this book will be disappointed if expecting to find solutions for all of the problems of penicillin therapy in syphilis.
