"Chlamydia pneumoniae Infection and Disease" book - worth getting?


I've found this book on Amazon - one of only few on CPN:http://www.amazon.com/Chlamydia-pneumoniae-Infection-Infectious-Pathogenesis/dp/0306484870/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC?ie=UTF8&coliid=I21LHEZ6H2DH51&colid=JTCRN1Y4KAGQIt's a bit old and quite expensive. Only a few libraries have it, and none in my area. Is it something worth getting or it's completely outdated?


Know your enemy i say, cannot comment on this book though. Looks interesting but as you say expensive. But i recommend reading the stratton patent for treating cpn, its available for free somewhere online. Some parts are very scientific but some parts have very useful information.

Treating PPMS with Azithromycin, Minocycline, Rifampin.

I read it and I did gain a better understanding of Cpn than what I had at the time. However I can't say that it revealed anything earth shattering. It does have lots of pictures of Cpn in various stages though, if thats your thing.

--Positive Lyme test via IGeneX Western Blot, Cpn probable but unconfirmed by ELISA testing, Babesia also likely.Buhner and Cowden herbal protocols, NAC, Artemisinin, Xylitol, Lactoferrin, other supps, essential oils, sauna

Leo, it is rather out of date for a medical book.  I had a look at the pages given on Amazon and I suppose it is reasonable as a text book, but the best place to look for up to date information is Pubmed,  By and large you will only get abstracts but if something takes your fancy you can pay for full access and you would have to buy quite a few permissions before you came up to the price asked for the book.........................SarahA Journey through Light and Shadow

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.
