(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

Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia 

Multiple Sclerosis

Alzheimers and CPn Cardiovascular Issues and Chlamydia pneumoniae

Please do read THIS material even if you are here for something other than cardiovascular problems!

Arthritis and Chlamydia pneumoniae

Respiratory Issues and Chlamydia including asthma

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.

Porphyria and CAPs

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!

Supplements Research and monographs for Natural substances usd in the protocols

Vitamin D Vitamin d is now on its own page

Chlamydia Pneumoniae Miscellaneous related material

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.

I am 76 years old. My daughter-in-law was diagnosed with MS and we are all very keen for her to start this new antibiotic treatment. We hope to be able to do this in the next couple of weeks by finding a doctor willing to deal with any issues like reactions that may crop up. My daughter-in-law is 43 years old.

I have been an active poilitical journalist most of my life and have felt for a long time that there must be a cure out there for MS which the medical community has largely ignored. I am very excited by the Wheldon protocol.

Neena, yes I will use this on a page I want to start on really new research, so could everyone post the links here, then I will move them!

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

Please, to make life a little easier for me, please post any new links on cpn or supplement research here, then I will move it to my new page.

Diseases thought to be caused by cpn wanted, but please no lyme, which is well dealt with elsewhere.  A different pathogen in any case!

Sarah--

I will hunt for the first article link I posted (I did not save it).

Here is another article that just came out:

Thanks Jan!

Oh, a different one than the MS one! Good, I'll post it.

Jan, of course they don't tell you what the transient myopathy is in the abstract and I feel unwilling to pay $39 to find out, especially when I have been taking it for a couple of years and feel nothing but improvement whereas this case involves just one person!

Thanks Sarah!  I've also felt nothing but good on N-A-C (also for a couple of years)... but just like other eyes on the research as I am don't have a science background.

Um, Jan, I was taking about biotin, not NAC. However, I have been taking that as well, though not in super-high dose: just 2500mg to start with, now 1000mg.

Incidentally, my science background stopped when I was 18, apart from what I taught myself later and later again what I learnt from David!

Sorry about the mix-up, Sarah!  

Sending some sunshine from the desert southwest.  Today, I am planting a tree... terrible time of the year to plant anything, but I have to get it out of the nursery pot before it boils.

Never mind about that: just get on and help your tree. Early June is still a good time of year for us to plant out trees, most years, whilst Mac in Chicago was still complaining about winter temperatures a few days ago!

I'm putting this in the research section, but it could go elsewhere.

"New gene tests for germs quickly reveal source of infections"  By MARILYNN MARCHIONE

This is one of the companies the article is talking about:

https://www.kariusdx.com/

I think the key thing is to look at the Pathogen List under the product link.  For patients who have not had a definitive diagnosis of Cpn, this test, if done correctly, should identify it.  I don't know the cost, but possibly insurance would cover it.

Interesting Jan, I'll get David to look into it!

We are accumulating quite a bit of new research stuff, but Drupal are also producing a lot of new updates, so Pinky is busy with those at the moment .  As soon as they stop I will set her on the research!

Because I'm reading a lot about biofilms these days:

 

"Borrelia and Chlamydia can form mixed biofilms in infected human skin tissues."

European Journal of Microbiology and Immunology · April 2019

 

I got a free PDF of the document on this page:
