    a broad-spectrum tetracycline antibiotic used against a wide variety of bacterial infections, including Rocky Mountain spotted fever and other fevers caused by ticks, fleas, and lice; urinary tract infections; trachoma (chronic infections of the eye); and some gonococcal infections in adults. It is an approved treatment for inhalational anthrax. It is also used with other medications to treat severe acne and amoebic dysentery (diarrhea caused by severe parasitic infection of the intestines).

    Doxycycline may also be taken for the prevention of malaria on foreign trips of less than 4 months' duration.

    Occasionally doctors prescribe doxycycline to treat early Lyme disease and to prevent "traveler's diarrhea." These are not yet officially approved uses for Doxycycline hyclate.

    I don't know what the "hyclate" is, but I've taken a pill called doxycycline before. It's just a low-end prescription antibiotic.

    Un tumore è una cosa estremamente seria e pericolosa ed è necessario rivolgersi a un bravo medico.

    Ci sono poi anche delle cure naturali che sicuramente non si possono sostiuire a un medico ma che possono dare dei benifici.

    Consiglio di dare un occhiata a questo sito http://prevenzionetumori.toptips.org/

    Spero davvero che in qualche modo possa aiutare.

  • To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of DORYX® and other antibacterial drugs, DORYX should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria.Doxycycline is used to treat many different bacterial infections, such as urinary tract infections, acne, gonorrhea, and chlamydia, periodontitis (gum disease), and others.
