Rob, what "bug" did they find? What were the next steps after the bug was found. Are these guys cured or have their symptoms just been reduced? Why haven't these guys posted their results?

I too can vouch for the fact that the broth culture has shown positive results for those suffering from prostatitis, seminal vesiculitis and other issues, especially the most elusive one - interstitial cycstitis.  

I've talked to about 5 people in the past 6 months who have decided for one reason or another to do a broth test, and they end up usually finding one of either

Enterococcous faecalis (also known as streptococcous D),

Staph Coagulate Negative,

or in my case, Klebsiella Pneumoniae.

This test is especially useful for those who have done semen tests and urine tests, and always find negative results at "normal" labs.  Broth cultures are much more sensitive to bacteria testing. 

You also can get pointed towards finding what antibotics the bacteria is resistant to (vancomycin and tetracycline in my case), or succeptible to (gentamicin, ciprofloxacin, doxycycline etc in my case).
