Post Finally PCR found " Corynebacterium tuberculostearicum"?
Corynebacterium tuberculostearicum is the bacteria found in semen. Has anyone exp this bacteria?

The test performed on semen is looking for more than 20,000 copies of bacteria before even considering the cause.

Since all my urine analysis and basic cultures have been negative and this test is the only one positive could this be the cause of all?

How do you treat it? I couldn't find any Abx that works against it...Will discuss with doc in upcoming weeks.

Bedford research lab in Boston does PCR testing on Semen to identify prostate infection.

Hey Mate.

I discussed RNA testing with my Infectious disease dr today in the hope that they might do something locally. Pretty much they brushed the idea aside, said that the testing didnt really help, and that corynebacterium could be found in the prostate anyways... so i'm now at the end of my treatment options locally... no sure what to do now...

what do you mean corneybacterium could be found in the prostate? Bro last time I had my prostate semen check (EPS) they couldn't find any bacteria this is when I was healthy...

The problem is I wouldn't care if It wasn't causing arthritis....Something in my body is causing arthritis...

my dr suggested that the corney is normally found in both healthy and unhealthy prostates and that potentially they do awol if you are immune compromised and become and issue, but that generally they are there in the semen so she rules them out for me.. im not saying they are not the problem, just saying that i was told they appear in prostates of healthy males aswell.. :( they are hard to culture..

They say that with most bacteria it seems, also Enterrococus even though it should never be found in the prostate.

I wish there were infectious disease urologists, then we might get somewhere, just hard cause Urologists are surgeons and Infectious Disease docs don't really understand prostatitis.

That's it exactly, Satch. Urologists area not trained for this, and even worse, in the US they are wrongly trained to think only 10% of prosatitis is bacterial.

Corynebacterium Group G are very strongly associated with prostatitis whereas the other Corynebacterium groups are not. Corynebacterium bacteria in general are commonly found but Group G is almost exclusively found in men with prostatitis.

Not offhand. I would use google scholar and search on "Corynebacterium and antibiotics".

other than sending away for this test you did ( i cant seem to get any email replies from the place that does it ), are there any other tests that can be done to check for things like Corny?

Did you have any direct email addresses of people that you have contacted, im overseas so an email is the best options.

If United Medical Lab not responding to email call them at 703-356-4422. I had reason to call them not long ago and they were caring & helpful. I do not know whether they can check for corynebacteria as this takes special testing.
