I stumbled onto this thread and although I didn't read through every page (55 is a bit daunting!) it seems like there's still not any effective method of treating this infection. For others that are veterinary students, if this is indeed a mycobacterium infection, has anyone else seen the research about bacterial efflux pump inhibitors paired with antibiotics as a possible mechanism of treatment?
Does anyone think that it's a possible theory to be able to use these with bettas, as some of the original research was done on zebrafish?
Some of the articles I was looking at:
Hypertension drugs help fight tuberculosis
Effects of Verapamil (an EPI candidate) on zebrafish
Infections in Zebrafish
