The gen behing CPn

Hello,

What do you smart people think of this discovery? Something tells me that it is very important.

Hasn't CPn been implicated in these three diseases: cardiovascular disease, rheumatism, and multiple sclerosis. If so this would possibly explain why this bacteria can get a hold of our bodies. It would also support the antibiotics treatment, maybe followed by a long term statin treatment to avoid that the bacteria come back.

Let me know your thoughts?

Best wishes,

This was originally published a couple of months ago. It fits in well with the infection theory: infection is common, but the disease depends on the body's response to it, and this response has a genetic component. You would expect it to vary according to different patterns of MHCs. Statins possibly work in two ways: they reduce the inflammatory response but they also inhibit Chl pneumoniae, but not stop it. It seems to me that pulses of minocycline are the only things at present which can do that, until a vaccine is developed.
