Chlamydia Pneumoniae Infections Possibly Linked to Inflammatory Arthritis


Research has discovered that Chlamydia pneumoniae, a believed trigger of ME/CFS & Fibromyalgia, and C trachomatis may be responsible for 150,000 new cases of inflammatory arthritis each year in the United States. Inflammatory arthritis related to Chlamydia pneumoniae outnumbers new cases of rheumatoid arthritis with approximately 125,000 new cases of RA each year.

The study, led by John D. Carter, MD, of the University of South Florida, revealed that joint fluid in 62% of patients who have inflammatory arthritis from unknown causes tested positive for Chlamydia pneumoniae and/or C trachomatis. Chlamydia pneumoniae usually starts as an upper respiratory infection and C trachomatis usually starts as a urinary infection.

  1. my grandmother also suffers from arthritis. she just takes glucosamine, chondroitin and lots of vitamin-c as supplemental therapy for arthritis.

  2. Many effective and safe natural therapies are available for Chlamydia cures. The treatments give quick relief from the symptoms and help controlling its spread.

  3. Since its discovery just over a decade ago, C. pneumoniae has been associated with a number of chronic diseases including some presumed to be autoimmune, such as multiple sclerosis and Reiter’s disease. So, it wouldnt really come as a surprise if it is also linked to inflammatory arthritis.
