Doxycycline is an important drug used in many disease conditions like Brucellosis, Lyme disease, malaria etc. One important side effect with it's use is raised intracranial pressure i.e. idiopathic intracranial pressure. So this study is a nice development as lesser duration of treatment will reduce cost of therapy, and a psychological well being because of less drug, less duration and less cost.
