Lyme Light Radio with Katina – Pathologist and Lyme Disease Expert Dr. Alan MacDonald

Alan MacDonald, MD, is a pathologist with a brilliant career spanning over 30 yrs. In the late 1970’s, he worked diligently to create tests to detect the newly discovered pathogen Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb). Dr. MacDonald was among the first to study Bb in humans. He was the first to publish evidence of Bb cystic forms, granular forms and cell wall deficient forms.
In 2008, Dr. Eva Sapi and Dr. Alan MacDonald published a groundbreaking paper concerning Bb forming protective biofilms, similar to other bacterial pathogens, providing evidence Bb infections are harder to eradicate and more difficult to treat. This information can be seen in the movie Under Our Skin.
Through his research, and with the help of other leading researchers in the fields of molecular and cellular biology, Dr. MacDonald is continuing to pioneer a broader understanding about the behavior of Borrelia burgdorferi as an infectious pathogen.
