Calcium inhibiting ABX and other drugs

Hi,

I recently came across some articles like this one:
http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/calcium-000945.htm

How do you think about the relevance of the inhibiting effect of Calcium on drugs? Does anyone know what evidence is on the basis of this assertion - in vitro model, animal studies, human trials?

Thanks
--Frank

Neuro Psych Eval

Day 4 of my campath infusion!

I'm on day 4 and it's going MUCH better than expected. I was diagnosed in Sept 08 and started campath off-label Jan 5, 2009.

Combined Antibiotic Protocol for MS - Begin Here

There is a lot of info here, there and everywhere. I'm putting this post up as a very basic place to start. I realize that my TIMS thread is now so long, it's likely cumbersome for someone to follow if they just want to find a starting point. I simply want to cover what I think are the obvious things someone with no prior knowledge of the ABX protocol would want to know.
