Dear JdBear

Antibiotics do appear to weaken the immune system by indiscriminately killing bacteria in the stomach. It is thought that between 70-80% of our immune cells are located in the stomach (see De Meirleirs research on this) and that having appropriate bacterial flora enables a healthy immune response. Thus indiscriminately killing bacterial flora with antibiotics can indeed impair the immune response. Especially if 'bad' bacteria start to flourish.

Minocycline does have an anti-inflammatory effect which is mentioned in most of the med info sites on it:
"As an anti-inflammatory, minocycline inhibits apoptosis (cell death) via attenuation of TNF-alpha, downregulating pro-inflammatory cytokine output. This effect is mediated by a direct action of minocycline on the activated T cells and on microglia, which results in the decreased ability of T cells to contact microglia which impairs cytokine production in T cell-microglia signal transduction .[17] see also https://www.annals.org/cgi/content/full/122/2/147

As for the court case, I can no longer verify whether the claim was settled out of court or not as the transcripts relating to the case have been pulled off the web in the past few months. No idea why....
