        I have found hints that antibiotics, NSAIDS, and perhaps other
things will cause false negatives in the tests for bacterial infections, but
I haven't been able to find very much on this problem. I am particularly
interested in Chlamydia pneumoniae tests, but would be glad to receive
anything on the subject. Thanks for your attention.
