Cyrex Pathogens Test

Cyrex Array 12: Pathogen-Associated Immune Reactivity Screen


Could your health complaints be triggered by lurking infectious agents, such as bacteria, viruses, yeasts, mould or parasites? Could this be helping to rob your life of the best of energy and health? Cyrex Array 12 helps to identify such pathogens that may be triggering your health issues.


Pathogens can remain inside your body's tissues a latent state long after an acute infection has passed, without your manifesting symptoms associated with the acute infection.  Latent pathogens can contribute to autoimmunity in a variety of mechanisms - intially without obvious symptoms, then potentially progressing to cause some symptoms and/or loss of function and reduced quality of life - all long before there is ever tissue degeneration or deformity or a medical diagnosis of autoimmune disease.


The human body is home to a vast variety of micro-organisms that help keep you healthy, so long as it is well balanced. In your gut alone, there are thought to be at least 10 times more microbes than there are human cells in your whole body. These micro-organisms regulate many important bodily functions, and aid your immune system to develop and mature in infancy and childhood, and help keep you healthy throughout your lifetime.


The human microbiota is influenced by many factors, including genetic makeup, diet, environmental exposures, stress, sleep and activity. However, new industries, new chemicals and drugs, and new foods can overload your immune system, effectively overwhelming your body with more and more environmental stressors. This can lead to your microbiome becoming imbalanced, which can open the floodgates to invading pathogens, acute infections, as well as colonization by non-beneficial bacteria, viruses, yeasts and parasites. As your immune system attempts to restore balance, it can end up "attacking" your own cells, tissues and/or organs that have been infected or contaminated with infectious agents. This may or may not eventually result in autoimmune reactivity.


Array 12 measures IgG antibodies to a variety of infectious agents, that potentially may trigger autoimmunity, including those that are found in the body as well as those that we may be exposed to in our environment. These include oral pathogens, gastrointestinal pathogens, gut parasites, bacterial and stealth pathogens, environmental moulds, viral pathogens and tick-borne pathogens including Borrelia burgdoferi, which is recognised as causing Lyme disease.

Cyrex Array 12: Pathogen-Associated Immune Reactivity Screen™


This array tests for IgG antibodies to the following infectious agents:


  • Porphyromonas gingivalis
  • Streptococcus mutans


  • Helicobacter pylori
  • Campylobacter jejuni



  • Yersinia enterocolitica
  • Clostridium difficile


  • Candidaalbicans




  • Rotavirus
  • Entamoeba histolytica


  • Giardia lamblia
  • Cryptosporidium


  • Blastocystis hominis


  • Human HSP-60 + Chlamydia HSP-60


  • Chlamydias
  • Streptozymes



  • Streptococcal M Protein


  • Mycoplasmas
  • Acinetobacter


  • Klebsiella


  • Mycobacterium avium


  • Aspergillus


  • Penicillium


  • Stachybotrys chartarum


  • Citrullinated Epstein Barr


  • Hepatitis C virus
  • Cytomegalovirus



  • Human Herpesvirus-6



  • Borrelia burgdorferi (relates to Lyme Disease)



  • Babesia + Ehrlichia + Bartonella (often occur as co-infections in Lyme Disease patients)



Please note that this is not a test for acute infections, but rather testing for IgG antibodies against specific components of pathogens that may be triggering autoimmune reactivity.
