“Mycoplasma incognitus: Newly Discovered Treatable Opportunistic Infection?” 01/19/90; Issue: 095; John S. James.

“The organism previously called a 'virus-like infectious agent,' discovered by Dr. Shyh-Ching Lo and colleagues at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, has been found to be a mycoplasma which is susceptible to several common antibiotics. Even before a blood test is widely available and clinical trials have been done, physicians may want to consider this new information when choosing empirical antibiotic treatment for patients with certain undiagnosed problems.”

Research Issues

“Cytokines in Allergic Disease.” Copyright © 1994, 1995 University of Texas - Houston Medical School, DPALM MEDIC

“Perhaps most exciting is recent data from several investigators that address the effects of allergen immunotherapy (AIT) on cytokine production. What has been appreciated for many years is the positive clinical effects of AIT on symptoms of allergic diseases such as rhinitis and asthma. Until recently, the mechanisms were largely unknown. Now we are beginning to understand that the process of AIT can selectively change allergen-specific cytokine profiles.”

“B Cell Function - The Missing Link Between CD4s and Antibody Production.” Jeff Baggish MD (author of How Your Immune System Works)
