Wait a minute!  Why are you trying so hard to prove that the source
of the infection is (or was) the prostrate?  You have some evidence
that it is *not* the prostrate;  what *else* could be the source?

This is a medical diagnostic problem, and you would probably get far
more relevant advice in some of the sci.med.* newsgroups or mailing 
lists.
