  • USA: Update2-Flu Activity Map (week ending 10/23/10), Haiti Cholera Update in Description box 1) United States: October 23, 2010 Flu Activity Map Credit & Source: www.cdc.gov 2) Haiti October Cholera Update An outbreak of cholera is ongoing in Haiti. On October 21, 2010, toxigenic Vibrio cholerae O1, serotype Ogawa, biotype El Tor was identified by the National Laboratory of Public Health of the Ministry of Public Health and Population in Haiti. Identification of the isolate was confirmed by CDC. As of October 27, a total of 4722 cholera cases with onset during October 21--27 and 303 deaths had been reported in Haiti (1). Most cases have been reported from Artibonite Department (1), a rural but densely settled area with several small urban centers. In addition, probable cases have been identified elsewhere in Haiti, including Ouest Department, where the capital city of Port-au-Prince is located. Cholera is transmitted through fecal contamination of water or food and causes an acute, severe, watery diarrhea that can result in hypovolemic shock and death if not treated with fluid replacement promptly. Epidemic cholera has not been reported previously from Haiti; the population is immunologically naïve and therefore highly susceptible to infection with V. cholerae (2--4). The outbreak appears to have spread from an initial concentration of cases in Artibonite Department. An international public health response, led by the Ministry of Public Health and Population and including technical support from the Pan American Health Organization, CDC, and other governmental and ...
  • Lymplex Lymph Node Cleansing Part 2 "The transformation of primitive or immature lymphocytes into T-lymphocytes and their proliferation in the lymph nodes is promoted by a thymic hormone called thymosin. Ocassionally the thymus persists and may become cancerous after puberty and and the continued secretion of thymosin and the production of abnormal T-cells may contribute to some autoimmune disorders. Conversely, lack of thymosin may also allow inadequate immunologic surveillance and thymosin has been used experimentally to stimulate T-lymphocyte proliferation to fight lymphoma and other cancers. 4. The spleen: The spleen filters the blood and reacts immunologically to blood-borne antigens. This is both a morphologic (physical) and physiologic process. In addition to large numbers of lymphocytes the spleen contains specialized vascular spaces, a meshwork of reticular cells and fibers, and a rich supply of macrophages which monitor the blood. Connective tissue forms a capsule and trabeculae which contain myofibroblasts, which are contractile. The human spleen holds relatively little blood compared to other mammals, but it has the capacity for contraction to release this blood into the circulation during anoxic stress. White pulp in the spleen contains lymphocytes and is equivalent to other lymph tissue, while red pulp contains large numbers of red blood cells that it filters and degrades. The spleen functions in both immune and hematopoietic ...

  • Serrapetase and Systemic Enzymes for Circulation and Inflammation This enzyme is naturally processed commercially today through fermentation and was discovered in the silkworm intestine. When the silkworm is ready to emerge from its cocoon it produces an enzyme that dissolves that very hard shell so that this delicate little creature can enter into a new world. The discovery of this unique biological phenomenon led researchers to study clinical applications of the SP enzyme in man. This immunologically active enzyme is completely bound to the alpha 2 macroglobulin in biological fluids. Histological studies reveal powerful anti-inflammatory effects of this naturally occurring enzyme. Clinical studies show that serrapeptase induces fibrinolytic, anti-inflammatory and anti-edemic (prevents swelling and fluid retention) activity in a number of tissues, and that its anti-inflammatory effects are superior to other proteolytic enzymes. http
  • Creating Super-regulatory T Lymphocytes Air date: Wednesday, February 24, 2010, 3:00:00 PM Timedisplayed is Eastern Time, Washington DC Local Category: Wednesday Afternoon Lectures Description: The power of the adaptive immune system is checked by regulatory T lymphocytes to prevent autoimmunity and immunopathology. In the absence of regulatory T cells humans and mice suffer fatal, multiorgan autoimmunity. Regulatory T cells function by a cell-cell contact dependent suppression of other T lymphocyte's proliferation and effector mechanisms. All T lymphocytes, regulatory and effector, rely on cell-cell junctions for recognition of self and foreign peptides bound to major histocompatibility complex (MHC) proteins that call T cells to action. These immunologically specific cell-cell junctions are described as immunological synapses. The immunological synapse is a stable cell-cell junction based on turning the motile machinery to the T cell inward to create a "bull's eye" structure that efficiently gathers MHC-peptide complexes to sustain signaling in an integrin dependent manner. We have compared the immunological synapse of regulatory and adaptive T cells and found a remarkable divergence between the two otherwise similar appearing structures. In effector T cells the mechanoregulatory enzyme PKC-q is polarized toward the immunological synapse, whereas in regulatory T cells the enzyme is excluded from the immunological synapse and is concentrated in the pole of the cell farthest from the synapse- the distal pole ...
  • Limitations of Skin Patch Testing for Diagnosing Hypersensitivity Reactions with Abacavir FDA is cautioning healthcare professionals against using skin patch testing to immunologically confirm suspected cases of hypersensitivity reaction in patients treated with the antiretroviral drug abacavir. Abacavir is sold under the trade name Ziagen and is part of the combination products Epzicom and Trizivir. Abacavir is associated with serious and potentially fatal hypersensitivity reactions. Patients with a particular HLA allele, HLA-B*5701, have a higher risk of developing these reactions if they are treated with abacavir, and so abacavir is not recommended for these patients. Because of this, a boxed warning recommends that all patients be screened for the HLA-B*5701 allele before starting or restarting abacavir therapy. If a hypersensitivity reaction is suspected in any patient, even those without the allele, the drug should be stopped immediately and permanently, because rechallenging the patient with abacavir could be fatal. Abacavir hypersensitivity reactions can be difficult to diagnose because they can be confused with adverse events from the patient's other HIV medications, or they may mimic the infections that frequently occur in HIV patients. Several research reports have described using skin patch testing to confirm suspected cases of abacavir hypersensitivity immunologically. However, data suggest that skin patch testing may miss cases of true hypersensitivity reaction or provide false positive results. FDA points out that the accuracy of skin patch ...
  • SERIOUS VACCINE RESCUE PROTOCOL ((( EMERGENCY PROTOCOL UPDATE LIST ))) ( Vid from Hour #2 on Friday July 31st @ ). Also see . Advice of Dr. Blaylock on How to Reduce the Toxic Effects of the A Vaccine, is as follows.... Number one is to bring a cold pack with you and place it on the site of the injection as soon as you can, as this will block the immune reaction. Once you get home, continue using a cold pack throughout the day. If you continue to have immune reactions the following day, have cold showers and continue with the cold press. Flavonoids, namely curcumin, quercetin, ferulic acid and ellagic acid, are particularly helpful in a mixture. The curcumin and quercetin have been found to block the ability of the adjuvants to trigger a long-term immune reaction. If you take it an hour BEFORE the vaccination, it should help dampen the immune reactions. Vitamin E, the natural form that is high in gamma-E will help dampen the immune reactions and reduces several of the inflammatory cytokines. An important ingredient is Vitamin C at a dose of 1000 mg, taken four times a day between meals. It is a very potent anti-inflammatory and should be taken in a buffered form, NOT as absorbic acid. Use astaxanthin as its an anti-inflammatory . Fatal reactions to vaccines in aboriginal and African children occurred in those who were deficient in carotinoids, like astaxanthin. It is a good protection against the toxic effects of the vaccine. Likewise, it ...

  • Mind Body Harmony One of the most exciting areas of health research in recent years has been the discovery of the connection between the mind and the physical body through neurotransmitters. Major changes in health care are now taking place as a result of greater understanding of how the mind/body dynamic works. From runner's high and endorphins, to biofeedback and imagery, the language of the connection is making its way into daily life. The thoughts that we have each moment send a chemical response from the brain via the nervous system to affect all parts of the body, including the functioning of our immune system. The profile of an immunologically healthy person, according to researchers such as Dr. George Solomon includes: * Being in touch with their bodily and psychological needs * Being able to meet those needs by assertive action * Possessing coping skills, including a sense of control, that enables them to ward off depression * Having the ability to express emotions, including anger and sadness * Being willing to ask for and accept support from loved ones * Having a sense of meaning and purpose in their daily activities, including work and relationships * Having a capacity for pleasure and play Enjoy this video with Neal Hoptman which reminds us once again that mind and body are intrinsically linked, and using this connection to promote harmony and health are some of the most powerful tools for wellbeing that we have. The major influences in developing this talk have been the ...
  • Repression Of Edema And Repression Of Blood Vessel Permeability with Systemic Enzymes It is known that proteases and peptidases are only absorbed in the intestinal area. These enzymes are mobilized directly to the blood and are not easily detectible in urine. Other enzymes with structural similarities have been reported to be absorbed through the intestinal tract. Chymotrypsin is transported into the blood from the intestinal lumen. Horseradish peroxidase can cross the mucosal barrier of the intestine in a biologically and immunologically active form. Several studies have appeared so far which refer to the systemic effects of orally given proteases and peptidases (eg serrapeptase), such as repression of edema and repression of blood vessel permeability induced by histamine or bradykinin. These enzymes also affect the kallikrein-kinin system and the complement system, thus modifying the inflammatory response. This is substantiated by reports of significant reductions in C3 and C4 complement, increases in opsonizing protein and reductions in concentrations of haptoglobulin, which is a scavenger protein that inhibits lysosomal protease. http
  • Adjuvant Opens Blood-Brain Barrier: Is In Our Kids' Vaccine The Canadian government has approved the unadjuvanted monovalent H1N1 vaccine, but not for toddlers and pregnant women, as we had been told they would. Instead, the 1.8 million shots of squalene-free vaccine will be given only to healthy adults and children age 10-65. Many parents who had been holding out for the unadjuvanted version seem to be under the mistaken impression that this is what is now being offered to their children. I wonder who will actually be receiving the 'special batch'? Will it be available on a first-come-first-serve basis, or only to a privileged group, as is the case in Germany? This is yet to be seen. The combination of squalene and Polysorbate 80 (surfactant) has been shown in animals to open the blood-brain barrier, giving neurotoxins such as mercury direct access to the central nervous system. While we are often reminded of how small the quantity of mercury in the vaccine is, I have never heard it mentioned that it will be given free access to our children's brains, thanks to the adjuvant. Monovalent vaccine package insert: not recommended for children under 3: www.gsk.ca Cochrane Review: Effectiveness of inactivated vaccine was similar to placebo in children 6 months to 2 years: Study describing how adjuvant can open blood-brain barrier: "Some studies of EAE (experimental allergic encephalomyelitis) in rodents report that peripheral injections of complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA), which contains heat-inactivated Mycobacterium ...
