Drug Azlocillin Shows Promise at Completely Killing Off the Disease-causing Bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi

A new study out of Stanford university shows promise at completly killing off the disease-causing bacteria borrelia burgdorferi.  This disease-causing agent was typically prescribed common antibiotics​ to fight the infection.  For 20% of those patients the standard antibiotics​ did not work.

For those 20% of people antibiotics don’t work, and lingering symptoms of muscle pain, fatigue and cognitive impairment can continue for years.

The new drug azlocillin showed 100% efficacy in rats at the onset of the disease.
