    M S Klempner
    New England Medical Center and Tufts University School of Medicine, Boston, MA, USA
    N Engl J Med 345:85-92. 2001
    ..It is controversial whether prolonged antibiotic treatment is effective for patients in whom symptoms persist after the recommended antibiotic treatment for acute Lyme disease...

    Zhihui Zhao
    Boston Medical Center, 650 Albany Street, Boston, MA 02118, USA
    Infect Immun 75:3062-9. 2007
    ..These data suggest that the upregulation of MMP-9 by B. burgdorferi involves the CD14 pathway in infiltrating inflammatory cells. Fibroblasts could be recruited to amplify local production of MMP-9 by acquiring CD14 from macrophages...
