Mycoplasmas (pneumoniae)

Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a quasi-bacteria that can infect humans. It usually causes upper respiratory tract infections but can also cause pneumonia, and it is one of the most common causes of atypical pneumonia in the United States.

Many extrapulmonary infections have been attributed to Mycoplasma pneumoniae infections.

We test for mycoplasma pneumoniae frequently. I have observed 2 cases of pulmonary embolisms and in each case, the "titer" for mycoplasma pneumoniae was above 1500.

The following is from a sample report from LabCorp.

Dr. Trempe told me that he felt mycoplasma was often a laboratory contaminant. It may be much more than that.

Here are links to sites that discuss mycoplasmas as very insidious possibly human-made pathogens.


These are excerpts from one of the references cited above.


  • There are 200 species of mycoplasmas. Most are innocuous and do no harm; only four or five are pathogenic.

  • The Mycoplasma fermentans (incognitus strain) probably comes from the nucleus of the brucellosis bacteria. This disease agent is not a bacteria, and not a virus; it is a mutated form of the brucellosis bacteria, mutated with a visna virus, from which the mycoplasma, is extracted.

  • Dr. Maurice Hilleman, chief virologist for the pharmaceutical company of Merck, Sharp and Dohme, stated that this disease agent is now carried by everybody in North America and possibly most people throughout the world.

  • The mycoplasma used to be very innocuous. Only one person out of 500,000 would get multiple sclerosis; one out of 300,000 would develop Alzheimer's; one out of 1,000,000 would develop Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Before the early 1980's, nobody ever died of AIDS because it didn't exist. The mycoplasma is also the disease agent in AIDS, and I have all the documentation to prove it.

Looks like Dr. Trempe had the right hunch!


The body undoes the damage itself. The scarring in the brain of people with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia will be repaired.

  • There is cellular repair going on all the time. But the mycoplasma has moved on to the next cell.

  • In the early stages of a disease, doxycycline may reverse the disease. It is one of the tetracycline antibiotics, but it is not bactericidal; it is bacteriostatic. It stops the growth of the mycoplasma, and if it is stopped long enough, then the immune system takes over. (Nicholson, G.L., Doxycycline treatment and Desert Storm, JAMA, 1995, 273: 618-619),
