Scientists have proven* that as the body fights Lyme disease over a period of time that a group of killer cells defined as cd-57 become diminished as our bodies struggle to kill the bacterial infection B. Burgdorferi.

Extensive testing by a reputable neurologist on my own immune system show that ALL my killer cell markers are subnormal (which could be the case in many people with chronic Lyme disease.) Certainly the medical community can agree that there is a correlation between Lyme disease and a compromised immune
Well, once again, the researchers are providing new rays of hope for those of us who struggle for years with chronic and/or neurological Lyme disease.
A study funded by the charities CHILDREN with LEUKEMIA and Leukemia Research, and led by Dr Hugh Brady from Imperial College London’s Department of Life Sciences and carried out by researchers (see end of post) at Imperial College London, UCL and the Medical Research Council’s National Institute for Medical Research.
researchers were initially studying the effect of E4bp4 in a very rare but fatal form of childhood leukemia when they discovered its importance for NK cells.
What they found was a “master gene” that causes blood stem cells to turn into disease-fighting ‘Natural Killer’ (NK) immune cells. Published in
