“New Approaches to Combat Lyme Disease”

West Tisbury Free Public Library

Kim Lewis, Ph.D., is a Distinguished Professor at Northeastern University, as well as Director of the Antimicrobial Discovery Center in the University’s College of Science.  His areas of expertise include antimicrobial drug tolerance, drug discovery, and microbial biotechnology.

Professor Lewis and his team have received worldwide attention recently for their discovery of the antibiotic, teixobactin, which kills bacteria without any detectable resistance.  Now Dr. Lewis is targeting the bacteria that cause Lyme, honing a pulse-dosing antibiotic strategy to kill the persistent cells that trigger the chronic form of the disease.

Massachusetts Lyme Insurance Bill – Fact vs Fiction

From the Massachusetts Lyme Legislative Task Force:

In anticipation of Governor Baker’s veto, we updated our previous advocacy document “Fiction versus Fact,” and have sent it to every state legislator to encourage them to support an override:

FICTION VERSUS FACT

In view of Governor Baker’s veto of this vital legislation, we want to clarify some misconceptions about H4491 and to remind you of the following factual information. We hope that this will be help to sort out truth from error in suppositions about the bill.

FICTION #1: Legislators should not pass this bill because they are not qualified to practice medicine.

FACT: This bill does NOT legislate treatment. On the contrary, it enables licensed physicians to make treatment decisions based upon their best clinical judgement, without interference from third-party insurers.

It simply bridges the gap between the physician’s prescription of long-term antibiotics (defined as anything greater than one month), already protected by state law, and the patient’s ability to pay for it through insurance. This approach incorporates both physician judgement as well as patients’ values, consistent with the principles of evidence-based medicine.
