    hi all. the nevada lab will be offering soluble cd14 testing in late january. i think dr. demeirleir has been offering this test for a while.

    has anyone had this test? if so, what did the doctor say it means? did he talk about antibiotics to address this?

    apparently, a high CD14 correlates with bacteria in the blood from leaky gut.

    the immunobilan test does not test for every kind of bacteria so the soluble CD14 test might be more useful.

    i think elevated sCD14 correlates also with a very high TNF-a.

    check out this quote from an article about elevated sCD14 and HIV-associated cognitive impairment:


    Ryan et al. (2001) subsequently confirmed an association between plasma soluble CD14 (sCD14) and cognitive dysfunction in HIV infection. More recently, Ancuta et al. (2008) showed that elevated sCD14 and lipopolysachharide (LPS) levels are associated with HAD. These observations support an independent study which demonstrated that elevated systemic LPS levels and immune activation in chronic HIV infection resulting from microbial translocation are associated with HIV-induced depletion of gut-associated lymphoid tissue (Brenchley et al. 2006). These studies clearly support the hypothesis that systemic immune activation/inflammation triggered by HIV-induced transmicrobial translocation and monocyte activation increases the risk for development of HAND through trafficking of activated monocytes into the CNS.

    Sushi, my sCD14 is 3,993.00 on a range of 1,430.00 - 2,800.00 ng/ml. Any thoughts/explanation on what it actually means? Any help in understanding this would be welcome!!
