Kroonisen Borrelioosin olemassaolo on yksi lääketieteen historian kuumimmista kiistoja aiheuttavista puheenaiheista. Lääkärit, joiden mukaan taudin kroonistuminen on mielikuvitusta, väittävät että lääkärit jotka usein hoitavat tautia, eivät ole erikoistuneita infektiotauteihin eikä heillä näin ollen ole heidän mukaan pätevyyttä puhua asiasta.
Tri Waisbren on toiminut infektiolääkärinä 57v. Hän on julkaissut useita Borrelioosia käsitteleviä tutkimuksia arvostetuissa lääketieteellisissä julkaisuissa kuten Lancet. Hänellä on siis merkittävästi tieto-taitoa ilmaista mielipiteensä kroonista Borrelioosia koskevaan IDSA:an vastaiseen taisteluun. Jatkuvasta, päivä päivältä lisääntyvästä tieteellisestä näytöstä huolimatta osa IDSA:lääkäreistä kieltäytyy myöntämästä kroonisen Borrelioosin olemassaolon.
Chronic Lyme Patients Get Political Victory: New Book by Top Infectious Disease Doctor Supports Long Term Antibiotic Treatment
"Chronic Lyme disease does exist," says Burton A. Waisbren Sr. MD, FACP, FIDSA, in his new book, "Treatment of Chronic Lyme Disease: Fifty-One Case Reports and Essays in Their Regard." The book, released in January, 2012, adds fuel to the already fiery debate over the existence of chronic Lyme disease.
Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) February 24, 2012
Chronic Lyme disease has become one of the most hotly debated diseases in medical history.
Those who claim that the disease is fictitious have stood on the argument that the doctors who treat this condition are untrained in infectious disease and are unqualified to determine whether the syndrome is in fact a legitimate diagnosis.
Dr. Burton Waisbren's new book, "Treatment of Chronic Lyme Disease: Fifty-One Case Reports and Essays in Their Regard", has rendered such an argument invalid.
Burton Waisbren, MD, FACP, FIDSA, has been practicing medicine for over 57 years. He is one of the Founding Members of the Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) and has published research on Lyme disease in prestigious journals such as The Lancet. He is board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and is a fellow of the American College of Physicians, as well as the Infectious Diseases Society of America. He is also a founding member of the American Burn Association and the Critical Care Society of America.
One thing is certain: Dr. Waisbren has the credentials to take an authoritative position on the chronic Lyme disease debate. And, like more and more experienced physicians, his position goes against the guidelines of the very organization of which he is a Founding Member: The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA). Despite mounting scientific evidence, this organization continues to deny the reality of chronic Lyme disease.
Sufferers of chronic Lyme disease are encouraged by Dr. Waisbren's position. "This doctor's credentials and experience are turning the tide in the chronic Lyme disease debate," says Bryan Rosner, a recovered Lyme patient and owner of BioMed Publishing Group (South Lake Tahoe, CA), the publishing company that markets Dr. Waisbren's new book. "Scientific studies have already proven that the Lyme disease organism can survive a standard course of antibiotics and that chronic Lyme disease is a real medical condition. What we've been missing is the right voice to explain this truth. I believe Dr. Waisbren's voice will turn the tide of this debate."
By reading his book, people can discover how Dr. Waisbren is helping his patients and which treatments he has found to be most effective for chronic Lyme disease. The book provides 51 case reports of chronic Lyme disease which Dr. Waisbren has personally treated, as well as essays in their regard.
Published in January, 2012, the book is available from BioMed Publishing Group for $24.95. Visit the publisher's website for more information.
