dbwilco, also i dont htink the Galaxy test i is a bad idea. they have their test protocol for bartonella before/during/after treatment.
with bartonella in particular i believe you can monitor the titers for increase/decrease for treatment response. not sure how many people pay to monitor these titers. but the document above says "Bartonella
antibodies tend to decrease rapidly (within weeks to months) in patients who eliminate the infection." Given that Dr Mozayeni, Breitschwerdt, and dr SP are working together, this test protocol seems sound to me.
i am going to do ePCR/IFA again soon to gauge my response with titers.
