Multiple Bart infection treated:
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3962907/

"Treatment with azithromycin (500 mg daily for 3 days, repeated after 7 days) plus minocycline (50 mg daily for 2 weeks) cleared the blood and saliva of the RNA and DNA of all three Bartonella species."

Reliable Cheaper Testing (China)
/www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5187759/

"LAMP method is rapid and simple to perform, requiring only a water bath or heating block for amplification...LAMP has high sensitivity and specificity compared to conventional, nested or qPCR for the detection of several intracellular bacteria.. and in distinguishing intraerythrocytic protozoan parasites, such as Plasmodium spp. and Babesia spp. [30,31]. The present study is the first report of a LAMP assay to identify B. Quintana"

The following pertains to Central and S. America. Highlights are quoted:

Detection of a Potential New Bartonella Species “Candidatus Bartonella rondoniensis” in Human Biting Kissing Bugs (South America)

/www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5271407/

"Depending on the gene fragment used, this agent shares 84% to 91% of identity with B. bacilliformis, the agent of the deadly Carrion’s disease"

(Peru)
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5382735/

"The genus Bartonella contains >40 species, and an increasing number of these Bartonella species are being implicated in human disease. One such pathogen is Bartonella ancashensis, which was isolated in blood samples from 2 patients living in Caraz, Peru, during a clinical trial of treatment for bartonellosis...Whole-genome analyses confirmed our previous identification of the isolates as a new species (B. ancashensis)

Gonna order them both today. I am just trying to decide it I need Minocycline or others and how much of each. So I am asking all of these drug questions.

I don't want to waste money and I feel like that is what I did with the supplemental Amoxy. Its cheap so it wasn't a lot of money but the highest I got to was 3000mg plus the 3 Augmentin a day.

I am still on the 3 Augmentin a day and will be until mid May but the high dose of amoxy wasn't helping. If anything it was making things worse.

Okay - when you said it wasn't working - you are talking about as part of a parasite protocol not for lyme/bart/babesia treatment. Is Amoxy supposed to work for parasites?

High dose Amoxy/Tinidazole is a Lyme treatment but yes I am also treating for parasites based on a modified Dr. K protocol. Its all a different shade of grey from where I am standing. If I respond to it I continue, if I don't I will stop.

The Bartonella just grows stronger in the face of most of my treatments. It responds mildly to Doxy but I know Doxy is not the answer. We have come full circle to the fact that I need to address the Bartonella. Yourself and others have been a big help in me addressing this. Its a shame I have to wait a month to get my hands on Rifampin for how old of a drug it is.

Don't get me wrong, it could be a lot worse. It was a lot worse. I am strategizing the Bart treatment now as this seems to be the next logical step. Thanks for all of your continued help.

Okay -

Doxy can be paired with Rifampin...if you don't want to do minocycline. You do need another antibiotic to do with the Rifampin.

So these are a new species? (how?)

Or just newly found. (makes more sense).

Im getting Mino and I have doxy if I run out. Im also getting Azithro

Can I take the whole Rifampin 600mg at once? These look like difficult to split capsules.

If not and I must take every 12 hours then I will get the lower dose.

Good question. There must be a registry somewhere that might tip us off.

I started rifampin by taking a 300 mg capsule and splitting it (bought some empty capsules and did my best to split in half) - did that for a week ? (can't remember exactly how long)

Then did 300 mg capsules once daily - for a few more weeks...before going to 300 mg twice daily.


After many, many months on that dosage...my LLND (after a positive pcr bart test) switched me to 600 mg once daily...and wow - it hit me harder than the 300 mg twice daily.

Liver enzymes were great - the best they'v been since lyme treatment started.

I wanted to save money if at all possible and order the 600mg and take it at once or split the dose but these look like capsules therefore if it is impractical or irresponsible based on your response, then I will order the 300 mg.

I am not afraid of herxing so don't factor this in.

So it sounds like you can do either its just a bit of a pain.

Is each ball inside the capsule the drug or are some of them filler? Are they all the same color inside the capsule?

Well you could order half and half...and after you've used the 300 mg...you can switch to once daily 600 mg.
Will save you some money.


I do think it's hitting it harder....and I think it's maybe 50/50 with the LLMD's - how they prescribe it.

LOL, I checked and we are looking at a 2 cent savings per day. In this case the convenience is worth the extra penny! Ill order the 300mg. Thanks again.

Not only is it too short of treatment - the combo usually won't get bart.


Maybe if you catch it early?
