Alzheimers and Chlamydia Pneumoniae

CPn infection promotes transmigration of monocytes through human brain endothelial cells

Chlamydophyla (chlamydia)pneumoniae in the AD brain More work by Brian Balin. Once again we see very good evidence of CPn being a neural pathogen.

Chlamydia pneumoniae in the alzheimers brain This work is on AD but the authors discovered CPn in the cells of the brain near the AD plaques. This should help establish CPn as a potentially neural pathogen

-Chlamydia pneumoniae in the Alzheimer's brain varies with APOE genotype The APOE genotype apparently interacts with CPn in alzheimers patients carrying that genotype. This suggests an interesting theory: that a bacteria is not the same in every person in terms of effects but rather an interaction between genes and bugs results in the pathology an individual experiences. This is a whole new understanding of how we interact with our environment.

The Balin research related to CPn in Alzheimer's Disease This list of research abstracts with links is an important study for anyone interested in CPn in the brain. Of note, this researcher like Dr Sriram also finds CPn in the brain consistently when others do not. This is likely due to the fact that both VU and Balin use frozen, not formalin fixed, tissue.

High prevalence of CPn antibodies in vascular dementia While VD is not alzheimers it is another indication that CPn has an affinity for cerebral tissue and is related to loss of brain integrity

wow, yikes, good to know, something I have been speculating about.

 

Thanks for the post JimK

Here is an interesting article about the link between Cpn and Alzheimers: http://tinyurl.com/76bsbyI don't think it has been postted yet--if it has let me know.Raven

Raven- Glad you found this. I'm going to link it to the Research book as it's a really clear, comprehensible report of Balin's work. Thanks.

Jim, this is a deeply personal issue for me. Here I was on CAP treatment and I couldn't get my mom to consider treatment for my dad who had Alzheimers. Perhaps at that point it would not have made any difference but I sometimes feel I should have really pushed them on the issue. Nothing can be done now but I do miss him.

And I have not had any luck getting my mom to look at her infection. I even made an appointment for her with Dr. P. but she backed out at the last moment with the excuse he didn't take her type of insurance (which was an excuse as she could afford to pay up front). I have been able to get her to take the supplements but she is constantly battling respiratory infections,neurological pain and arthritis.

It has been important for me to accept what is/was and that I could not change it. But I have made a committment to being an activist for others and spreading the word when I can. My heart goes out to all those families who deal with this terrible condition. But from what we know now, there is probably an answer to the problem in the CAP treatment.

Wishing you a great New Year!

Raven

Feeling 98% well-going for 100. Very low test for Cpn. CAP since 8-05 for Cpn/Mycoplasma P.,Lyme, Bartonella, Mold exposure,NAC,BHRT, MethyB12 FIR Sauna. 1-18-11 begin new treatment plan with naturopath

Jim, I never heard back from Balin, but perhaps he's been lurking here. I'll keep sending him info periodically, regardless.

thanks Raven, I sent this off to my husband, hopefully he reads it as he isn't treating as yet.

Good Job MacK, I hope Dr. Balin is lurking here & I am glad you are sending reminders.

 

peace

Little by little this bacterium will reveal its nefarious activity.   Hopefully in time more research will be done about it and the diseases it causes.
