Although this news item is not specifically about Cpn, it certainly is in the ball park. Most of us are focused on getting help via the antibiotic protocol for one disease or another, but it may turn out that we are nipping some other problems in the bud...

Many cancers caused by infections

Disease/Infection News
Published: Thursday, 6-Dec-2007

Cancer - popularly understood as a result of mutations or mistakes within the genetic code in cells - is also caused by infections from viruses, bacteria and parasites.

"I believe that, conservatively, 15 to 20 percent of all cancer is caused by infections, however, the number could be larger -- maybe double," says Dr. Andrew J. Dannenberg, director of the Cancer Center at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center and Henry R. Erle, M.D.-Roberts Family Professor of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. "Unfortunately, the public, as well as many health-care workers, are unaware of the significance of chronic infection as a potentially preventable cause of cancer."

During a speech at the American Association for Cancer Research's (AACR) Sixth Annual International Conference Frontiers in Cancer Prevention Research, on December 5, 6:00 p.m. EST, at the Philadelphia Marriot Downtown, Dr. Dannenberg, who is also the meeting's program committee chairperson, will highlight the link between chronic infection, inflammation and cancer as an opportunity to reduce the global cancer burden. He will review research milestones that have provided the basis for vaccine development and anti-infectives to combat cancer. Some of the topics to be discussed include:

Liver cancer, caused by chronic hepatitis B and C.
Human papillomavirus (HPV), linked to cervical, throat and oral cancer (oropharyngeal carcinoma).
A form of gastric cancer, called adenocarcinoma, and a form of lymphoma, called MALT lymphoma, that have been linked to Helicobacter pylori bacteria.
Bladder cancer, caused by chronic infection with Schistosome parasites.
How inflammation caused by infections may lead to a variety of cancers.
Of Special Interest:
Dr. Dannenberg believes that recent evidence linking HPV to throat and oral cancer -- not only to cervical cancer -- suggests that adolescent boys in addition to girls may benefit from being vaccinated against HPV.

My thanks to Dr. Powell for passing this one on.

Thanks Jim.   Excellent find, and it matches pretty much the list Dr S rattled so quickly off to me when I asked him his thoughts on the potential for C. pneumoniae's involvement in cancers such as glioblastoma multiforme...

Susan- I haven't found anything specifically on Cpn and thyroid cancer, but viral causes seem connected, e.g. http://jama.ama-assn.org/cgi/content/full/281/17/1588

A useful reveiw article: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/417716

 Oh lord....  I'm never having sex again. lol

 

 On another note, pernicious anemia (lack of ability to absorb b12) increases risk of gastric cancers. There is some info out there that pernicious anemia can be caused by infections and if im thinking straight theres info around here about CPN contributing to that.

Cancer is an infectious diseas. Dr. Royal R. Rife isolated 2 different cancer viruses in the early 1930's. Passed them through multiple mouse hosts, and recovered infectious material. A clinic conducted in 1934 under a Special Research Commitee of the University of Southern California oversaw the research and treatments until the end of the 1930's. He successfuly cured 16 of 16 terminal cancer patients within 3 months time. Read about it in The Cancer Cure That Worked. ISBN 0-919951-30-9. I don't understand why we are still running for the cure.

Warning!!! Cynical comment ahead: DrStan writes, "I don't understand why we are still running for the cure." Because there is no money in a cure! --------------- "Chance favors the prepared mind." --Louis Pasteur Husband treating MS with CAP
