About this perfidy exciteTo the head of the therapy department says Vladimir Markovski.
Question №1. Vladimir Borisovich, that is chlamydia? What is the peculiarity of this parasite?
Chlamydia are a special class - theyoccupy an intermediate position between the bacteria and viruses. The fundamental difference from viruses in that they can not reproduce themselves, and chlamydia can. Chlamydia are very small in size and have a similar virus life cycle, it is the intracellular parasite.
Chlamydia can very quickly move in an L-shape- State, when the parasite loses its typical structure and becomes a protective shell. This is a fight for survival. In this form, the pathogen can not multiply, but so he can survive adverse conditions.
Question №2. What are these conditions?
For example, antibiotics. Chlamydia does not like when her "cure." This intracellular parasite, is not interested in the fact that it expelled from there. Chlamydia characteristic that the antibiotic treatment after only 7 days induces the formation of L-shapes.
Part of chlamydia are killed, and those who hadgo in L-shape, to become "bulletproof" antibiotics. And so after some time, they can take its previous form and begin to actively proliferate, taking all the new cell site.
That is, even when the clinical effectWhen chlamydia symptoms disappear, the person is not cured! And infections due to L-forms distributed throughout the body - becomes generalized. In most cases antibiotic therapy leads to improvement of local, i.e. in place of the entrance gate process ends.
Question №3. Well, the entrance gate from chlamydia clear what: it's genital infection!
And here you are wrong! Not only. The input gate for chlamydia are any mucous membranes (eyes, nose, throat, genitals). But mainly it's still a disease transmitted through sexual contact.
Depending on the entrance gate chlamydia cancause various lesions. It chlamydial urethritis, which runs very sluggish, often asymptomatic, especially in men. As a rule, the disease goes unnoticed. In women, chlamydia often manifests itself clearly, here are more favorable environment for the reproduction of chlamydia.
Appointment of antibacterial drugs leadsto ensure that the local process ends. He may end up spontaneously due to the immune system. But in most cases, against the backdrop of improving local infection generalizing, ie from mECTA entrance gate leaves, and can be stored somewhere in a very long time.
Question №4. Where is she hiding?
In the blood, in the lymph nodes and joints. Recently, Chlamydia has become a big surgical problem. It turns out that the so-called aseptic necrosis of the femoral head in almost half of cases directly related to chlamydial infection. This is not a classic inflammation because chlamydia lives in the bones, but it forms the mucous cysts, and bone as if "foams." This can lead to complete destruction of the joint.
In general, a lot of variants of Chlamydia infection. Chronic chlamydial infection - this is a huge problem. An American researcher aptly said that there are only two kinds of diseases in human pathology - it's infectious diseases and infectious diseases actually.
Question №5. That is, those diseases that we have always considered non-infectious, is actually caused by infection?
This is a condition caused by chronic virusand bacterial infection. Even in the development of such common diseases as atherosclerosis, is not the last role played by chlamydial infection. The constant presence of the pathogen in the body causes immunodeficiency.
After all, what any chronic illness? This series of exacerbations and remissions. Another academician IV Davydovsky wrote that the remission phase - this is not a period of temporary health, as reason - in this case Chlamydia - has not disappeared. Therefore, the body, even in a state of remission continues to struggle with it.
This means that the immune system whenatherosclerosis, and other diseases, is always in the voltage phase. Chronic infection is accompanied by the release of inflammatory regulators - cytokines, which are involved in the formation of atherosclerotic plaque. And in the plaques themselves are often found chlamydia.
Question №6. They say that the flu is not terrible in itself, as its complications. And what about chlamydia?
Chlamydia is just dangerous is theirconsequences: it is chronic urogenital diseases, decreased erectile function, miscarriage, infertility. This complication of a local nature. But there are complications associated with damage to other organs.
Here's an example: a young man, Sergeant railway troops became ill with acute chlamydial urethritis. As a result, he became blind in one eye, he had to put the prosthesis femoral head - a twenty-something years! That's what chlamydia. Wrong or not fully cured the infection represents a great danger for the organism.
Because the infection tends to become chronic, there is always an immunodeficiency, the immune system over-voltage, which is bound to affect hereinafter: the earlier the development of atherosclerosis, the destruction of bones, formation of mucous cysts.
Question №7. It turns out, correctly, that in any diagnostic program necessarily includes examination of the patient for infections?
A survey on the most topical infection is necessary, because even if the infection does not cause, it is always difficult for any disease.
In terms of diagnosis of chlamydia - an analysisurogenital scrape by PCR and, of course, the determination of antibody titer in blood. After the process in chronic pathogen in the blood is in the L-shape, so here we rely on antibodies. Titer high - should be treated!
Question №8. And how do you treat?
Now the rule of treatment - a combination of antibioticsrational immunotherapy. Sensitivity to antibiotics known Chlamydia. Worse is the case with immunotherapy. Because the immune system is extremely complex, multifactorial, and there are not sufficient criteria to evaluate it. These tests are very expensive and, again, a complete picture of the state do not provide immunity.
Question №9. Then the question arises: what is the rational immunotherapy?
This is a complex effect on the immune system. Treatment is prescribed depending on the age, disease duration, presence of complications, etc. The assignment may include various combinations of T-activin, polioksidony, interferon inducers, vitamins and others. Any patient can be helped here.
But most importantly: in the scheme of treatment is required to present a unique drug that regulates the formation of glycoproteins - the basic building blocks of cell membranes and receptors. Thanks to them, the cell "talks", there is an exchange of matter and energy. At the level of the body that regulates the drug all the factors of immune protection. It also has a direct antiviral effect.
Furthermore, there is unspecificbiostimulation: increasing the body's resistance to stress, stress, etc. After all, the immune system recognizes everything, and L-forms of chlamydia, too, but it does not always have enough reserves to fight chronic infection, for that it should be supported.
Question 10: After all is said, the guarantor of our health is probably the abstinence?
Well no! Complete abstinence is not required. While moderation never hurts! The only guarantee of health is a state of immunity. After all, 10% of people have a congenital immunodeficiency, they are always sick. Another 10% - these are people with strong immune systems, they will never get sick or get sick very often. And 80% of people - including those we have with you - the immune system depends on the conditions.
So you need to create the conditions under whichthe immune system would always be on guard our health. This is all that strengthens the immune system, starting from the regime, quitting smoking, etc., including the proper use of immunomodulators - rational immunotherapy.
So, despite all the deceit of the pathogen and we have something to say: the modern medicine can cope with chlamydia and its complications!
