Hello you two, I often have trouble viewing these Acclerated Cure things, so can one of you tell me if it is this, copied from PubMed?

The significance of Chlamydia pneumoniae infection in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) is unclear.We determined the frequency of serum C. pneumoniae-specific immune complexes in patients withMS, neurological (OND) and healthy controls in a blinded, cross-sectional study. C. pneumoniaeimmune complexes were detected in 24% (38/156) of MS patients, 16% (11/69) of OND and 15%(77/499) of healthy controls. The odds ratio for all MS patients was 3.95 (95% CI: 2.15 to 7.24;P _ 0.0001) accounting for the covariates: sex, age, socio-economic status and area of residence. Theodds ratio for recently diagnosed MS patients was 4.33 (95% CI: 1.76 to 10.64; P _ 0.001). SystemicC. pneumoniae infection is more frequent in MS patients than the healthy population and occurs early in the course of the disease.
