antibiotic treatment

What Is The Treatment Duration?

     The antibiotic treatment lasts months or years. The nutraceuticals/medical foods suggested are tailored to each individual. The whole treatment is based on Dr. Franco's beliefs and research findings that microorganisms including mycoplasmas trigger/ cause inflammatory forms of arthritis.

Important message from Dr. Franco

**Important message from A. Robert Franco, MD**
      I often find that patients that come to see me for diagnosis and treatment for rheumatic diseases have already started on antibiotic treatment. Although this may be helpful to the patient, it would be best when applicable to have the appropriate work-up PRIOR to starting on antibiotic treatment. I am referring especially to the mycoplasma and chlamydia PCR test (genetic fingerprint).
