In an old discussion on "MS, Lupus or Brucellosis", Dr. Garth Nicolson said, "There are a few labs in the Midwest that can test for Brucella in human blood samples using a PCR-based test format."
Dr. Nicolson, if you could please let me know the names of theose laboratories, I would appreciate it. My chronic Brucellosis seems to have recurred, and I would like to get a definitive test done. I have never showed antibodies to Brucellosis, even when cultures in CSF were positive.
This discussion is related to Lupus ? or MS or? Brucellosis.
Welcome to the forum.
In regards to your question, you may want to go to
www.immed.org ,as you may have a better chance of
contacting Dr. Nicolson there.
From what I have noticed, he hasn't been active lately
in this forum. Again, who knows, he may post a reply
soon. It might worth trying through the website, though.
