Prostatitis, Prostate Cancer and Chlamydia Pneumoniae

Submitted by Jim K on Wed, 2006-09-06 16:31

Stratton et al found evidence of Cpn in interstitial cystitis (IC) in a study which is listed in our research pages. In a recent web excursion I found this researcher's page which describes a number of studies finding quite high rates of Cpn in prostatitis, BHP, and even prostate cancer:

The research looks solid to me. Worth taking a look. 

Interesting article and another thread of evidence of the effect of Cpn on the human body.

I had a quite giggle to myself when I read this phrase though:   "Chlamydia Pneumoniae (C.p.) is one of the newest pathogens of the respiratory tract in humans."  

Did it not exist before it was discovered?

Michele:  on Wheldon protocol since 1st May 2006 for a variety of long standing ailments, also spokesperson for Ella started Wheldon protocol 17th March 2006 for RRMS

Michèle (UK) GFA: Wheldon CAP 1st May 2006. Daily Doxy, Azi MWF, metro pulse.

Michele- of course nothing exists until it's discovered by scientists... we all know that!

Actually, it may be more a translation inaccuracy, as the abstracts on the page are littered with funny translation errors.

There was a relationship for me. I can chronic prostatitis since my early twenties. It was largely blown off by my pc doc. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer at the age of 43. I was diagnosed with CPN 3 months before my cancer was detected. Threre was a clear relationship for me. Hope that helps.
