Does Bart have a life cycle? would it be common to flare every certain amount of days? I'm trying to work out a pattern...
Posted by bigstan (Member # 11699) on :
Bartonella takes 24 hours to divide, and Bb takes anywhere from 12 hours to 7 days --

Since most antibiotics work best while bacteria are replicating, a longer replication cycle necessitates a longer treatment course.

Hum, where did you read 24 hours for bart? I read 6 to 7 days...

Someone posted a sci journal article that said Bart is about 5 days. Is the difference in timig due to diff strains or maybe the technical definition of a complete cycle?
