Infectolab Chlamydia pneumoniae Elispot LTT





My suggestion would be to take the NAC test to see if you have a flu like reaction which would confirm CPN. If you don't want antibiotics you may want to investigate Buhner's herbal protocol or  Cowdens. Sphinx here did the Buhners protocol after CAP. There is a Facebook group Buhner Healing Lyme and Co-Infection group that you might want to check out: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1441091676154216/?fref=tsfor Cowdens to here:http://www.nutramedix.ec/ns/lyme-protocolIn addition, this fellow knows a lot about LYME and co-infections. You can get in touch with him via his Facebook or website. He is very nice and helpful. https://www.facebook.com/BetterHealthGuy/?fref=tsPSI was also tested by Infectolab. Both my MD and ND trusted their results. My results were positive for CPN and chronic LYME.Here are my results for CPN for comparison:Chlamydia pneumoniae antibodiesChlam.pneum.-IgG-antibodies (ELISA)+ 1.9 Ratio <0.8=neg.;>1.1=pos.Chlam.pneum.-IgA-antibodies (ELISA)+ 1.7 Ratio <0.8=neg.;>1.1=pos.The specific Chlamydia pneumoniae-IgG- and -IgA-antibodies are an indication for anactual humoral immune response against Chlamydia pneumoniae. Please look at theChlamydia-Elispot-LTT for the actual cellular activity.Chlamydia pneumoniae Elispot LTTChlamydia pneumoniae-Elispot LTT + 5 SI < 2The result of the Elispot-Lymphocyte-Transformation-Test (LTT) is an indication foran actual cellular activity against Chlamydia pneumoniae.

Regarding risk of re-exposure (reinfection, to be specific), most of us plan to take N acetyl cysteine daily, for the rest of our much-healthier lives, to preclude cpn getting another foothold.

The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems. Mohandas Gandhi

Quite, I take 1000mg of NAC most days and I haven't even had a cold this last thirteen years.........................Sarah

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.

Thanks for your replies, I really appreciate it.  Lots to think about.  I'm trying to catch up with some reading at the moment and then hope to write more soon.Not sure how best to organise information I post to the forum.  I think further posts will delve more into treatment options and past medical history, so that probably means starting a new thread in a different section of the forum.  I guess that makes sense, though it seems a shame to detach further information from that preceding it here giving some context and background.  I was even thinking perhaps I should have put this in the blog section of the website so it all stays together...?  But what I've written isn't exactly a blog either.That's all for now.  Brain fog...
