Antibiotic resistance in Chlamydia pneumoniae?

The possible development of antibiotic resistance in Chlamydia pneumoniae


This is often a cause of deep concern for those who begin combined antibiotics to eradicate a chronic infection with C. pneumoniae. There are many good reasons why the development of resistance in C. pneumoniae is likely to be a rarity provided an appropriate antichlamydial combination is used. Here is a list of such reasons:

Progesterone--Mice

Hi all

I’m happy to report that I think it’s finally time to start a progesterone thread.

I know the confidence level in mouse research (mine included) ranges from 0 to –0, but I wanted to initiate a timeline of the development of progesterone starting with the early research in mice. And, the mouse trials are off and running…..

Here’s some postive info (for the mice at least) and the studies have been on the ...

Me me me meeeeee

I've already rudely shouldered my way into the forum but I thought I'd better introduce myself.

I'm Catherine, 28 yrs old in Toronto, just married in August.

I was dx unofficially last November, officially in January 07. I was a lucky one - woke up one morning with no sensation on my right side. Went to the ER, lots of worry and drama, blah blah blah, eventually had a vertigo attack, then came out three ...

To call or not to call...

This a typical "should I call my neurologist?" question.

I've been on Rebif nine months now. Yesterday I started a brand new symptom, and while it isn't that bad a symptom, it is new.

My left thigh is getting waves of tingles non-stop. Very annoying but harmless.

Is this something I call the neurologist for to get steroids, or do I just mark it in my book and tell him about it at my annual ...

Any second timers?

I posted elsewhere that my neuro wants to re-titrate me on Rebif after my liver enzymes come back down. Is there anyone else that has done this? How is it going if so? How long did it take for them to come back to normal? Any info is appreciated!!!
Thanks a bunch,
Kelli
