(Some of these pages seem to have been lost in Jim and Kent's time, but gradually I will try to retrieve them or put in something even better. Sarah)
These pages on research articles are now reorganized into separate pages for each category. Doing this has been needed for some time, but it is with some trepidation we do this because in some diseases the research is very equivocal and incomplete. While you may be on this site for MS, CFS or FMS, it is the pattern of ALL the research that provides the depth and impressive volume about CPn and how it causes chronic human disease that makes the picture clear. Don't make the mistake of thinking this is some new idea or that it has only a few studies just because it is relatively unknown in one field and the page on your specific disease includes only a couple of studies. This is as significant to human disease as understanding staphylococcus, only we are talking in this case about chlamydia pneumoniae. Information about the germ applies and transfers from one field to the next: the important thing is to understand the pathogen and how it reacts in the body. Of interest you will find the material in the general, chlamydia pneumoniae bacterial research, and the cardiac sections provide a very great depth. Read these sections in addition to the one related to your disease and you will be miles ahead. Of course I recommend reading all of this stuff it is interesting! And hey we can add to this with so much room now so send along anything you think ought to go in.... Marie
General information : read this section for general information on chlamydia pneumoniae
Please do read THIS material even if you are here for something other than cardiovascular problems!
CPn and other diseases Lots of interesting stuff here!
Interstitial cystitis, prostate enlargement...…….check it out, but we seem to have lost the links!
Lab analysis of Chlamydia Pneumoniae This is an important read for everyone
Antibiotic research in CPn This section contains links and abstracts of research on how antibiotics affect CPn in different stages as well as research on how the antibiotics recommended for CAPs penetrate various tissues.
Endotoxin Research Of interest to the person in treatment
Chlamydia Pneumoniae Bacterial Research Don't miss this section no matter what you are here for!
Vitamin D Vitamin d is now on its own page
Polymicrobial Aspects /Research This section is for the curious and serious investigator and will be of less interest to those who just want to do the treatment. It has become clear that there are some important implications for the person infected with more than one pathogen and that this is common. The combination of one or more pathogens that live and "work" symbiotically may possibly be the key to how people can have something like MS.
