Can people be tested for these infectious agents and if it turns out that they arn't there would it still make sence to take antiobitics. I don't mean with interferon but just on there own.
So some people with ms have them and some don't ( infectious agents )and some don't have ms but have (infectious agents ) and don't take antibiotics and do the people here at thisisms that are helped by antibiotics have these (infectious agents)and thats why it's helping them. But not all people with these (infectious agents ) develop ms, some just have them.
So you genetically have to have a predispozition to ms and the get the(infectious agents ) which causes the ms but at the same there are people with ms that have no trace of (infectious agents )and still benifit from antibiotics because of the anti-inflamatory properties.
When taking antibiotics with an (infectious agent ) can that person be monitored to see if that particular (infectious agent) is irraticated from that person because of the antibiotics?
Had ms for 24 years now.

Those are all good questions, robbie. I would like to know the answers too because I have wondered the same thing, especially whether all people with MS have the bacteria or just a select percentage.

Maybe anecdote will enlighten us.
