Intracellular pathogens like Chlamydia pneumoniae have been strongly implicated in the initiation and pathogenesis of several idiopathic autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. This has been created in collaboration with a Scientific Advisory Board of the physicians and researchers most published in this field. The sole purpose of IRG is to educate you so that you can help your patients.
Designed for healthcare providers, an abstract or brief description is provided for each piece of literature. They are each linked to the original publication. Seeing the whole body of research sheds light on the importance of intracellular infection. The epidemiological view of this information is quite compelling and funding for further exploration is desperately needed.
If you’re a patient, welcome to you, too. This is a resource for your primary care doctor or specialist to access this information. If you believe that you have a chronic infection seek out a healthcare provider who is willing to listen and to learn. You are your own best advocate.
