2006: Blumenthal's antitrust investigation into IDSA.
Now-Senator Richard Blumenthal investigated IDSA for antitrust while he was Connecticut Attorney General. IDSA agreed to appoint an "independent" panel to review the Lyme diagnostic and treatment guidelines, which they predictably found to be "appropriate", in the end. Blumenthal has since abandoned Lyme as one of the issues he champions. When TRUTHCURES met with his staff in 2017, they were uncooperative and dismissive.
