Now that we have seen evidence that raises serious questions about Dr Antonio Espinosa Feliciano
(see exposé above), it is perhaps not surprising that he has been at the forefront of futile (so far) attempts to classify CPPS as an infectious disease
. In close collaboration with Bradley Hennenfent
of the Prostatitis Foundation of Illinois (an organization that has worked assiduously to undermine our website and forum), he has published a variety of studies attempting to link CPPS and even Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
(an endocrine disorder of older men) to infection, as can be seen here
I won't go so far as to say that this effort to paint CP/CPPS as an infectious disease is an attempt to pervert the course of science for personal gain, since both men stand to gain in various ways, including financially, were this theory to be accepted, but the suspicion is raised, at least in my mind. Fortunately, nobody in any sort of position of power in the scientific world has accepted this view and major studies have refuted it resoundingly. This has not stopped these men from tirelessly promoting the ideas at their websites, including prostatitis--dot--org, and trying to foist their views on various conferences, meetings and public websites like wikipedia. Be on guard!
