Post-bacterial infection chronic fatigue syndrome is not a latent infection.

Post-bacterial infection chronic fatigue syndrome is not a latent infection. Med Mal Infect. 2019 Feb 02;: Authors: Melenotte C, Drancourt M, Gorvel JP, Mège JL, Raoult D Abstract Post-infectious chronic fatigue syndrome is a public health problem. Etiologies and physiopathological mechanisms are unknown. Some viruses are known to be involved in post-infectious chronic fatigue syndrome, but the role of bacterial infection is still questioned, especially in cases of post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome where subjective symptoms are regularly attributed to the presence of the dormant bacterium without scientific evidence. However, the medical experience of recalcitrant infections, relapses, and reactivations questions the role of "dormant bacteria" in asymptomatic latent infections as well as in subjective symptoms. We summarized scientific literature data on post-bacterial infection chronic fatigue syndrome, the role of dormant bacteria in latent infections, and bacterial asymptomatic carriage. Subjective symptoms described in post-infectious chronic fatigue syndromes are still misunderstood and there is no evidence suggesting that such symptoms could be related to dormant bacterial infection or carriage of viable bacteria. Psychological trauma may be part of these subjective symptoms. Post-infectious chronic fatigue syndrome could nonetheless be due to unknown microorganisms. Antibiotic treatment is not required for latent infections, exc...

Contributors : Wang Xin ; Hussain SeemaSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mycobacterium tuberculosisWe applied RNAseq (Nextseq) technology to study mechanism of action of nitro-containing heterocycle antitubercular JSF-2019, with des-nitro JSF-2026 as control. Briefly, mid-log phase (OD = 0.3) M. tuberculosis culture was treated by 10x MIC of each compound in biological quadruplicates followed by mRNA extraction and RNAseq analysis. We find that JSF-2019 and pretomanid as intracellular NO • donors exhibited distinct transcriptional patterns comparing to extracellular iNOS induce...

Some of the voices of the past can appear entirely contemporary, because they saw further and with greater clarity than most of their peers. John W. Campbell, editor of Astounding Science-Fiction Magazine, died of heart disease at age 61 in 1971. In 1949 he wrote an editorial on the future of medicine, aging, and longevity that wouldn't seem out of place today. He anticipated what we presently call actuarial escape velocity, or longevity escape velocity, the idea that gains in life span through progress in medical technology allow greater time to benefit from further gains - and eventually, we are repaired more rapidly tha...

This study evaluated antibiotic vs placebo. The study was terminated early due to the determined likelihood that a beneficial effect would not be found. When this was critically analyzed with biostatistical methods, an article was published which I believe demonstrates that Klempner's study was so poorly designed and analyzed that in order for a treatment effect to have been observed, the antibiotic treated patients would have had to improve to a level of health which was a full standard deviation better than the average health of the general population. It's a reasonable hope for antibiotics to return a patient to a somew...
