CPn test

Post by somebodyx » Tue Nov 13, 2012 2:33 pm

Hello,
could someone please tell me how can one get tested for CPn in Slovenia? I am also interested in antibiotics treatment if possible in Slovenia. Does anyone have any experiences with doctors in my country being pro antibiotic treatment for MS?
Thank you for answers.

I'm not sure about Slovenia but if you look at this site: www(dot)cpn(nospace)help(dot)org you will find severalpeople from eastern European countries(Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania) who might be able to help.

Best of luck,

Hi Sarah,
isn't CPn test useless as an indication of the cause of MS?

Some people say so. Actually a positive result obviousy does not show that you have MS, but a positive result for someone with MS indicates one of the reasons why they have the disease. Many people start treatment without being tested. I did: I was tested a few weeks later.

Sorry, this is not what I wanted to say. I might have misunderstood it. My understanding was that CPn test is from blood, but if you have MS, CPn is already in your other cells, so blood test has no relevance in case of MS. My test was negative, but it was done two months after the start of the Wheldon protocol.

Yes, you are right there: my C pn test was two weeks after starting, when the mixture or infection and dead cells tends to make the reading higher, but mine was only 1:64, not high enough to be bothered with treating according to my GP. Two months on and I might well have regulated and so shown negative like you.

Sarah, I might be confused about testing CPn, even though Sriram recommended the test as well. If someone took antibiotics for different reasons in the past. Can he still have a positive CPn test from his blood? Wouldn't it be more likely that CPn is already in other cells of his body and cleared out from his blood?
