Dear user community,

What would you recommend as best strategy to find out a doctor in the region you live.

Target : help you to implement the "cure" protocol + follow up (diagnostic, PCRi, serologyi).

How to be sure of the strain infecting (rRNA mapping ?) - diagnostic tools to be used (is Roche diag / Cobas the good choice, any other one ?, what about antibiogram / strain resistance and/or sensitivity to specific antibiotica.

<Latent ChlamydiaL Infectionsi: THE Probable Cause of a Wide Spectrum of Human Diseasesi< Authors: Dipl. Ing. Emil Bazala, Vítězná 588, Litovel, Czech Republic Dr. Vet. Med. Jaroslav Renda, in memoriam, Czech Republic In 1977, MVDr. Jaroslav Renda and I came to that conclusion that we both, as well as members of both our families, suffered from strikingly similar health problems, problems often diagnosed in people involved in animal breeding.  This brought us to the hypothesis that the cause of these problems could be an infectious agent of the same origin.  

Summary

 In the decade from 1980 to 1990, we amassed anamnestic data from 746 animal breeders on 31 farms, suffering from similar health problems and as a control sample we chose 146 people from various professions outside agriculture.  A randomly selected group of 20 people from the 746 animal breeders were serologically tested for a wide range of infectious diseases (mycoplasmosis, tularaemia, leptospirosis, boreliosis, toxoplasmosis, listeriosis, and others).  The analyses of these tests showed comparable figures in the majority of the tested people only in their serological response to chlamydial infection.  Then, another randomly selected group of 157 people were serologically tested specifically for chlamydial infection.  In 96% of these people, we diagnosed a serological chlamydial response to a general chlamydial antigen and Chlamydia trachomatis antigen.                Over the following eight years, these people were under medical observation and from one to four times a year they were serologically tested for various chlamydial antigens.  Some of these sera were placed in long-term stored at a temperature of -18°C and then gradually serologically tested to compare levels of specific antibodies with other antigen batches.                In addition, we also conducted a biological experiment on two Chlamydiae seronegative guinea pigs in one animal breeder’s family where all family members suffered from long-term health problems and showed varying levels of chlamydial antibodies.  The guinea pigs were kept separately: one of them was fed on granulated feed and family food leftovers, the other on granulated feed only.  After three months, the first guinea pig showed serological chlamydial response, whereas the latter was seronegative.  The seropositive animal later lost weight and died, and its internal organs were congested and small haemorrhages were found on its pleura.                After twelve years of intensive research, analyses and consultations with experts in both human and veterinary medicine, we finally came to the conclusion that the cause of a number of health problems and diseases could be identified in latent chlamydial infection.  The findings of our research were published in veterinary journals in the Czech Republic and Germany in 1992 (1).  Due to persistent and deteriorating health problems in a majority of the examined people, we decided to continue in our research efforts and consequently discovered similar symptoms in people from urban, non-animal breeding communities, whose tests were also in many cases Chlamydia seropositive.                The detected cause of infection, observed health problems and diseases, as well as their origin and development were based on logical conclusions drawn from amassed results, long-term research and both anamnestic and diagnostic data obtained from infected people. These conclusions are based on the following facts: 
  1. Strikingly similar health problems.
  2. Hospitalized as well as examined persons were tested for common zoonoses, yet none of these were detected.
  3. Examined people and their families, in a majority of cases, did not suffer from the observed health problems when not in contact with animals.  In the Czech Republic, many animal breeders originally had non-agricultural professions.
  4. Family members who are not in direct contact with animals show symptoms of infection mostly with a considerable delay in comparison to the breeders themselves.
  5. Of a number of serological tests for various infectious diseases, a comparable antibody response appears only for chlamydial infection.
  6. With varying frequency, some infected patients suffer from acute inflammations of the internal organs, described in cases of Chlamydiae.  In these patients, following the acute feverish inflammations, we observed a rise in specific chlamydial antibodies, which then gradually decreased to initial values.
  7. Long-term and repeated diagnostic examinations of these patients performed in various specialised medical facilities did not reveal any objective cause for their problems or diseases.
  8. The current symptomatic treatment is not adequately efficient and even inefficient from a long-term point of view; the infection usually slowly, very gradually deteriorates.
  9. Some, namely macrolid, antibiotic treatment results in a reduction and occasionally in disappearance of health problems in some patients, however, these problems later resurface and gradually deteriorate, while serum levels of specific antibodies remain unchanged.
  10. Biological experiment on seronegative guinea pigs discovered production of chlamydial antibodies in a guinea pig receiving food leftovers from the family of an infected farmer.
  11. Living standards, nutritional quality, living conditions and the environment for the majority of patients under study is very good.
  12. After publishing our findings in various journals, we received a lot of feedback from people primarily from a non-agricultural, urban, population who were suffering similar problems.  In most of these people, Serological tests discovered a seropositive response corresponding to persisting, latent chlamydial infection, with titres of IgA antibodies at 1:20 and higher and IgGi antibodies at 1:64 and higher.
  13. In the families of people under study, the number of premature deaths, most frequently caused by cancer, as well as cardiovascular diseases and general health-instability were quite high, affecting one or more members in over 40% of the families.
  14. Some of these patients were neurologically examined for the possible influence of unidentified toxins.
 After the assessment of these, as well as other, no less important, relationships, we are drawn to a logical conclusion, that there has to be one, common primary agent and that other possible negative factors are secondary in nature.
