    Good 6 page summary here - could be used as a handout for those less-than-informed doctors. ;) While it's not all-inclusive, it does hit the high points in each category of research. (I don't know how to copy and paste a chart, so this is a picture)

    ETA: I found the source. Paul Watson, aka @thegodofpleasure on Twitter. Thanks Paul!

    Great find @SDSue! I will print out this 6 pages and carry them with me to my approaching appointments with the local hematologist/oncologist and PCP. I now have slightly less trepidation going in, and a lot more confidence that I can effectively argue against their prejudices.

    Great information @SDSue! what sort of site is app.box.com which compiled all this information? I went to app.box.com but it wanted me to log in - it looks sort of mysterious! :)

    That’s a great question! I have no idea about app.box.com. I ran across it on Twitter today. Were you able to link to the spreadsheet?

    I dug around and found the source, Paul Watson, which I added to my original post.

    Thanks to Paul (thegodofpleasure) for putting this together. Much appreciated. If my computer manages to download it, I too will be using it to give to my doctors. (I really hope you don't mind that people are copying this for their doctors).

    Box.com is just an online cloud service where people can store files, similar to Dropbox or Google drive. They have nothing to do with the compilation of the document.

    Wow, I hadn't seen that Blomberg paper before - 25% with signs of Cpn infection! You'd think someone like Lipkin would have noted this and tried to follow up on it.
