Wikipedia information on cpn
31 Jul 2009
Wikipedia has got involved in cpn but needs some help. If you go to edit this page you can add information from the cpn website. Anyone want to take a stab at it. However wrote it needs lots of help. Heres the website http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Dangermouse72/Cpn == These sections need to be written: == *'''Treatment''' - talk about multiple antibiotics needed - one for each lifecycle stage. *'''Persistent State''' - key paragraph. Why treating Cpn is not trivial. *'''Pneumonia/Acute infection''' - rather than have the whole article about this as before, just need a small paragraph as these things are pretty straight forward. *'''Dissemination paragraph''' - how Cpn disseminates throughout the body via the lungs. Different types of cell it can infect. This is key as Cpn is not (just) a lung infection. *'''Asthma''' *'''MS''' - this should be easy to do. Lots of references available. Difficulty will be condensing it down to 1 paragraph. *'''RA''' *'''Research Difficulties''' - Due to intracellular nature & persistence. Why do results differ so much - e.g. PCR results of studies. Great resistance within some areas of clinical medicine for infections as cause of chronic disease (e.g. h. pylori). *'''Cause vs Effect''' - Is CPn the cause of all these diseases or is it just a pillion-passenger? Answer likely to be both. *'''Testing''' - Debate on PCR vs Antibody (with references if possible). NAC test? *'''Miscellaneous''' *'''External links''' - add in links to *major* sites of interest only. Any major source which hasn't been referenced above can go here.
