Just wondering if others have had this test done, because it seems that it is not common for most LLMD's to test it and I don't understand why not if they are possible coinfections as well.
Did anyone come out positive for any? If so were they treated? I had my daughter tested.as
My daughter came out equivocal for the Proteus OX19 & O2 and positive for salmonella(Typhoid Fever) and even had a low titer show up for Brucella which could be significant from what I have read.
She has fever everyday all day. It's been almost 2 yrs. And she has been in treatment 3 yrs. She did not have this fever initially.
(Lyme, babs, Bart.)  She had been on cipro/zithro to treat Bart 4 months before had this test done, so I think it would have even showed up stronger (proteus/brucella) had it been done earlier.  Unfortuneately the Dr. does not think this is a factor for the fever or not getting completely better, and thinks she has had it in the past and the body has taken care of it. Ya right? That's why she is still not well.

I was tested for brucella some time ago and it came back negative; it can cause a kind of general infection, it can hide in different tissues, and then reactivate (itself) and cause this general infection; normaly its transmitted through raw milk from cows. Thats all I know.
I hope your daughter will get better quickly !! dorit

I had alot of bladder infections and intestinal problems and had a culture done and tested positive for proteus vulgaris. Antibiotics were given. My immunity is not up to par, and I was getting alot of bacterial infections and that was the name of it. Seems proteus is common in immune-compromised people. D
