New Handbook page on Cpn & Rosacea

I'm very please to announce the addition to the Cpni Handbook of a page on Rosaceai and Cpn put together by our own intrepid member Red. Red has been a pioneer in applying the CAPi for Chlamydia pneumoniae to his own condition of rosacea">i, and has been instrumental in educating many of us about this condition through his own experience on the CAP, as well as his careful studies of the biology and research which connects them together. I know that all of you reading his page will learn more whether you have rosacea as part of your own Cpn difficulties or not.

As we have prevented comments in Handbook pages, this thread might be a good place for any feedback or discussion about this addition.

Comments

Jim, thank you as well for all your advice and helpful input with this. I believe your suggestions help make the case for connecting Cpni and Rosaceai much more clear and strong.

Remember I don't have any science or medical background, so if anyone on the board, particularly those of you with a science or medical background, have any suggestions for strengthening the case further, please let me know either in this thread or via PM. Your input would be greatly appreciated...

Although my recent edits keep moving the page to the top of recent posts, here's a direct link to the handbook page for future reference:

Hi All,

I just noticed the Fernandez-Obregon / Patton study I referenced in the above page which implicated C. pneumoniae with rosaceai originally has been included in this month's issue of Cutis (Cutaneous Medicine for the Practicioner):

http://www.cutis.com/asp/archive/article.asp?ArticleID=1778&FileType=abs<


The abstract on Cutis now also states: "These preliminary data suggest the need for further investigation with clinical trials to study long-term tolerability and efficacy and also strongly implicate C pneumoniae in the pathogenesis of acne rosacea">i.".

Strongly implicated. Alright!   Although we know that single antibiotic therapy is very unlikely to eradicate a persistent Cpni infection, hopefully this article will at least help stir some additional research in this area...
