thenmama Posted January 24, 2012 Report Share Posted January 24, 2012 I've heard there's a theory that some strains of these illnesses may be more likely to cause PANS in those susceptible-- and have also heard and/or maybe read on here (?) that there have been "outbreaks" or clusters of newly dx'd cases in particular areas which has either supported or perhaps precipitated the theory about the strain variants...Also have seen that resurgence in some conditions- like ARF and SC has been believed to be associated with more virulent strains of the bacteria and know firsthand that our family has one of these terrier-like strains of GABHS-- my son can't go off Clindamycin right now or it springs back-- we're on our way to IVIG now. Was discussing this with a doc the other day who added that it seems likely, especially since it's known this is true with other conditions-- I think Glomerulonephritis and ARF, etc. Briefly mentioned here The following sites seem they might be of interest to us PANS parents: Collection of Strep Strains CDC GABHS Pathogen Surveillance Think I won't be getting much work done today!
