Prescription NSAIDs like Naproxen and Celebrex cost about 55 cents each but they merely suppress painful symptoms. An overview of Minocin sources and costs as of 2011 appears In Appendix II and at www.tmgp.com/minocin.htm.

37) The author fired four rheumatologists who would not even consider a discussion of any alternative treatments other than TNF blockers and other accepted mainstream drugs. They were given a sheaf of research papers describing Dr. Brown’s protocol, which they refused to read.

Another excellent overview is at http://www.roadback.org/index.cfm/fuseaction/studies.display/display_id/184.html For Sarcoidosis or multiple infections, patients should acquaint their doctors with the Marshall Protocol.

This was a study involving 15,716 patients treated with antibiotics for RA between 1998 and 2009. The study’s conclusion: “Rheumatologists have not embraced minocycline or doxycycline as primary treatment options for RA and reserve their use primarily in patients with long-standing, refractory disease.” This reluctance is surprising, considering minimal side effects and generally acceptable tolerance for the antibiotics, and their measurable effectiveness. The duration of just 3-6 months was not enough to significantly decrease the colony of pathogens. Online at http://arthritis-research.com/content/13/5/R168
