    Oops. I see that now on the clinicaltrials listing. It was not included in the new webpage or the email that the researcher sent me. I wonder if the criteria changed or if it's just a discrepancy between pages.

    i wonder if they will test the trial participants who haven’t already shelled out for extensive coinfection tests.

    I have responded quite well to disulfiram, but it was very hard to build up. Took me months to get on a good dosis. I check my liver every month.

    I am still wondering why disulfiram is working, it could only be the effect it has on dopamine. I do wonder about that. I have to say that a few bloodlevels (prostaglandins, cytokines, cd57, cd38) were normal for the first time in years after three months of disulfiram.

    Since it hasn't yet been posted, here is the Liegner article:

    “Repurposing” Disulfiram in the Treatment of Lyme Disease and Babesiosis: Retrospective Review of First 3 Years’ Experience in One Medical Practice (2020)

    Open access, full text: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7761882/

    The methodology and results strike me as very similar to the Horowitz Dapsone retrospective, discussed in this thread.

    I believe that there are many more patients using Disulfiram than Dapsone. I am in two Facebook groups for Lyme patients using Disulfiram with ~5 and ~12 thousand members each.

    I am seriously considering trying Disulfiram again. I received a new Lyme Western Blot IgM that is way more positive than it ever has been, and my symptoms have multiplied and increased in severity.
