LYMEPOLICYWONK: Was this important Lyme study hidden for 12 years?

The recently published monkey study by Embers and colleagues regarding the persistence of Lyme after antibiotic treatment is important for two distinct reasons. The first is because of the scientific results of the study, explained in a 5-part article I posted on this blog last week. (Links follow this post.) The second, more troubling reason, is because publication of this important research was delayed for over a decade. And that delay has seriously harmed Lyme patients.
