Lyme Disease Message Board


Lyme Disease Board Index


band 18 highly specific for lyme...many will say that this band alone is a positive for lyme

band 41 flagellan protein of all spirochetes

band 45 cross reactive for all borrellia

band 58 unknown..possibly heat shock Bb protein

I just quickly went through a site I found but maybe take some time and look it up, and read about it. hope this helps.

I think the infectious disease doc rule it out for this:

CDC criteria for IgM : 2 of the following 3 bands have to be positive

ospc(22-25),39,41 (your 39 and 41 and IND=indeterminante I read that means there are antibodies present but just not enough to be a solid (+)

CDC criteria for IgG 5 of the following bands have to be positive 18, ospc(22-25) 28 30 39 41 45 58 66 93

IgM means more recent and current infection
IgG means previous exposure to bacteria or older infection

Igenex criteria for IgGand IgM testing using western blot
positive if 2 or more bands are positive ospc(23-25) 31 34 39 41 83-93

I hope I didn't confuse you
