Important review article by Charels Stratton of Vanderbilt, "Association of Chlamydia pneuomoniae with Chronic Human Diseases by Dr. Charles Stratton, Antimicrobics and Infectious Diseases Newsletter, Vol. 18, No. 7, July 2000). The full-text article is available Here
A valuable textbook article on Cpn, its biology, life cycle, structure, detection and treatment. It gives a very clear visual diagram of the life cycle of Cpn as it invades and useds the host cell. Invauable for understanding Straton et al's patent descritpionns for those digging deeper into the biology of this. Here
The work of microbiologist David Wheldon, whose wife has MS and has recovered significantly after the administration of his antibiotic regimen: David Wheldon MS Treatment
David Wheldon's wife, Sarah, is a regular contributor to www.thisisms.com forum on antibiotics in MS This Is MS ABX site and the forum there is probably the best one I've found for information on antibiotic treatment of MS- lots of people on the treatment and reporting results.
Here's a newspaper article about a CPn+ MS patient who improved dramatically on antibiotics: Cpn news article
Information on Chlamydia pneumoniae and its relationship to human diseases in general
Page with links to various Chlamydia including Cpn research and disccussion. Chlamydia site
This article includes neurological diseases and includes the statement, currently ignored by most neurologists, that "chlamydial infections should be included in the differential diagnosis of neurological syndromes." Here
Another newspaper article on the treatment of MS with antibiotics: Here
A very unpolished but interesting page with all kinds of information about antibiotics and MS, mostly from Vanderbilt. Here
This is a sub-page of the above address: The owner of the page tracked down many of the patients treated with antibiotics at Vanderbilt, and actually talked or e-mailed with them. Interesting information! Here
If you go Here then you can call up the patents on treatment and diagnosis of Chlamydia pneumoniae.
The patent numbers are 6,838,552, 6,756,369, 6,884,784 and for MS specifically, 6,710,033.
The role of CPn in multiple other diseases, including asthma, arthritis, etc: Includes a good explanation of CPn in general: Here
On treating those with asthma for CPn infection: Here
"How one man discovered an asthma cure after researching chlamydia pneumoniae and mycoplasma."
As well as this Here
For men (Prostatitis): Here
Interstitial cystitis: Here
Cardiovascular Disease (includes an explanation of how CPn can disseminate throughout the body- good stuff): Here
And here’s an article on the “usual” view of Chlamydia pneumoniae as a respiratory pathogen: Here
A Wiki Research Resource page on Cpn and Rosacea! Excellent resource.

Stratton, Charles Patent
Here is a highly edited version of the Stratton Patent. (By Colourbleu - I tried to pull out all that seemed most relevent and reduced the whole by more than half.) Here
Here's a recent article published in a periodical for UK hospital physicians, which tells Sarah Wheldon's story quite nicely, I think. Here
An excellent site on Chronic Fatigue Disorder which makes available research especially on infectious sources such as Chlamydia, Mycloplasm and viral sources. http://www.cfsresearch.org/
Dr. Mike Powell has an excellent Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue oriented clinic which tests for Cpn, among other infectious agents, and uses Dr. Stratton's protocol in treating for Cpn. He is very knowledgable about the Cpn treatment process.
- Another excellent site on CFS which has superbly referenced discussions on Vitamin D, nutrition, and a very intelligently structured "For What It's Worth Protocol" which outlines nutritional and anti-infections program of treatment in a step-wise manner is Ken Lassesen's site http://lassesen.com/cfids/ZeroBasedProtocol.htm . An excellent source on nutrition and other information quite useful in treating Cpn related problems.
Micropathology Ltd.- a diagnostic laboratory in Coventry, England which may be setting up a Cpn test using the Vanderbilt DNA primers and methods. Direct inquiries to them via this link.
