A forum for the discussion of antibiotics as a potential therapy for MS

Ignoring the Evidence

Well, it may not be a hefty scientific paper, but this arrived through our letter-box this morning.

"Hospital Doctor" is the British hospital doctors' coffee break reading matter, published weekly
and very widely read. David wrote this in an hour or so and I supplied the artwork!

Then we both forgot about it.

Now I have put it in the occasional essays section of my website
because the "Hospital Doctor" only has a certain amount ...

Calling all Minocycline Users

Minocycline has great promise as a therapeutic for MS (just search for it on our forums and you will unearth a mass of information explaining why). As it is a very straightforward therapy IF it works, there is a great deal of interest to see how those experimental souls willing to try it are faring.

Could all the people using minocycline please post their experiences in this thread? In the loose form of:

How long ...

The gen behing CPn

Hello,

What do you smart people think of this discovery? Something tells me that it is very important.
http://www.thisisms.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=210&mode=&order=0&thold=0

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 ...

Long-term antibiotics do not cut heart attack risk

Thought this might be of tangential interest...

"Long-term antibiotic treatment designed to fight a common but stubborn bacterial infection does not reduce the risk of heart attack, according to two studies released on Wednesday.

Previous studies found that more than three-quarters of heart attack patients were infected with Chlamydia pneumonia, a bug present in the fatty plaques that clog arteries"

Do antibiotics preclude other treatments?

Thanks to information I've obtained from this site, and the exceptional contributions of Anecdote (Sarah) and others...I have just now started on an antibiotic regime, in fact, on my third day. My question is, I've started the antibiotics through assistance of my GP. I have an upcoming MRI and appointment scheduled with a neurologist at the MS clinic. If the neurologist recommends that based on the MRI I start on one of the CRABS, do ...

"Anecdote's Personal treatment Regime" additions

If you look at the first of my postings in "Anecdote's Personal treatment Regime" in the Regimens section, you will see that I have made some additions to the supplements list. These are in no way compulsory, but I have found them very beneficial, especially when you get onto the metronodizole. It means you don't have to take so much of the other supplements as well!

Also, coming soon, new paper from Vanderbilt.

Sarah ...

Recent Research from Vanderbilt

Ok, I'm new to this site, so I don't presume I can actually say much that would be of interest but here goes.

I recently checked Vanderbilt site and noted that S. Sriram will shortly be publishing the results of his pilot trial of antibiotics in RR MS.

So I called him. Of course he didn't answer, but the woman who did was friendly. I said I was SO looking forward to the publication because ...

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a serious chronic neurological disorder in which demyelination and inflammation occur in the white matter of the CNS. The findings of many epidemiological studies and a discordance of MS in monozygotic twins suggest that the ...
