I got together with a friend of my family xxxx , over the wekend, the one that was seeing a neuro for the possibility of lyme. Well, he was tested at Stony Brook (I'm thinking of testing there as well). His results are as follows..
LYME DISEASE SEROLOGY (I guess this is the elisa)
NON -REATIVE PATIENT SPECIMEN O.D. 0.108
WESTERN BLOT RESULT IgM- Negative
CDC specefic kDa band reactivity: NONE
Igm and Igg reactivitiy to "CDC" non-specific bands only.
Igm NONE SPECIFIC BANDS = 18, 34, 93
Igg NON-SPECIFIC BANDS = 29
Then it goes on to say.....
While there is someIgm and Igg band reactivity, these results do not meet CDC criteria for a positive western blot.
My friend was told that his lyme test was extremely negative.
Oh, and I forgot to mention, he was put on antibiotics as a percaution for around a month or so. So he was on antibiotics when he was tested.
I don't know what to tell him
