LYME DISEASE SPIROCHETE ENCODES MANGANESE-DEPENDENT SOD [METABOLISM]

FRI, 01 JUN 2012 04:00:00 +0100

In this study, we provide biochemical and genetic data showing that SodA is a manganese-dependent enzyme. First, B. burgdorferi contained SOD activity that is resistant to H2O2 and NaCN, characteristics associated with Mn-SODs. Second, the addition of manganese to the Chelex-treated BSK-II enhanced SodA expression. Third, disruption of the manganese transporter gene bmtA, which significantly lowers the intracellular manganese, greatly reduced SOD activity and SodA expression, suggesting that manganese regulates the level of SodA. In addition, we show that B. burgdorferi is resistant to streptonigrin, a metal-dependent redox cycling compound that produces ROS, and that SodA plays a protective role against the streptonigrin. Taken together, our data demonstrate the Lyme disease spirochete en...

BORRELIA BURGDORFERI MALQ MUTANTS UTILIZE DISACCHARIDES AND TRAVERSE THE ENZOOTIC CYCLE

FRI, 01 JUN 2012 04:00:00 +0100

AbstractBorrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme borreliosis, cycles in nature between a vertebrate host and a tick vector. We demonstrate that B. burgdorferi can utilize several sugars that may be available during persistence in the tick, including trehalose, N‐acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) and chitobiose. The spirochete grows to a higher cell density in trehalose, which is found in tick hemolymph, than in maltose; these two disaccharides differ only in the glycosidic linkage between the glucose monomers. Additionally, B. burgdorferi grows to a higher density in GlcNAc than in the GlcNAc dimer chitobiose, both of which may be available during tick molting. We have also investigated the role of malQ (bb0166), which encodes an amylomaltase, in sugar utilization during the enzootic c...

MYVIEWPOINTS: SHARING INFORMATION, CONNECTING COMMUNITIES

THU, 24 MAY 2012 14:43:13 +0100

Adrienne found online communities helpful when recovering from Lyme disease About two years ago I became very sick. After dealing with illness for a number of months I was finally diagnosed with Lyme disease. Suddenly I had an explanation for all the symptoms I was feeling: aches and pains, headaches, blurred vision, dizziness, memory loss, upset stomachs, anxiety, depression. I was lucky to find a great local doctor and have a supportive network of friends and family to lean on. I took my prescribed antibiotics and felt better. I took time off from work and gave my body time to heal. Both played into my eventual recovery, as did the support network I found online. By connecting with an online Lyme disease community I learned what hurdles other people like me were facing, and how they bea...

TICK-BORNE ILLNESSES: AN OVERVIEW

FRI, 18 MAY 2012 16:06:34 +0100

Over the past several decades, tick-borne illnesses have become more widespread throughout the US because of such factors as climate change, increasing numbers of animal reservoirs and tick vectors, suburban development, and participation in outdoor recreational activities. Despite the availability of low-cost and effective antibiotics, these infections continue to cause severe illness in adults and children. Tick-borne illnesses in the USA are clinically similar, but epidemiologically and etiologically distinct, illnesses. The more commonly encountered infections include Lyme disease, human anaplasmosis (human granulocytic anaplasmosis), human ehrlichiosis (human monocytic ehrlichiosis), babesiosis, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. The infecting organisms are maintained in natural cycles...

LYME DISEASE

FRI, 18 MAY 2012 16:06:34 +0100

Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne illness in the USA. It was originally described in 1976 after an unusual cluster of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis cases in Lyme, CT. The causative agent of Lyme disease is the tick-borne spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi, which is transmitted through the bite of the tick species, Ixodes scapularis, in the northeastern and north central USA and Ixodes pacificus in the Western USA. Lyme disease is a multisystem illness with variable clinical presentations and most often involves the skin, joints, nervous system, and heart. After infection, some patients may have disease localized to the skin, whereas others may only present with later illness, such as arthritis. Early cutaneous findings of erythema migrans (EM) in the right clinical setting are usua...

BABESIOSIS

FRI, 18 MAY 2012 16:06:34 +0100

is a tick-borne illness caused by the protozoa Babesia, an obligate parasite of red blood cells that produces a malaria-like illness. It is transmitted by the tick, Ixodes scapularis, which is also the vector of Lyme disease and anaplasmosis. Over the past 50 years, Babesia sp increasingly has been identified as a cause of human infection. The first cases of babesiosis were reported in Europe in 1956 and in the US in 1966. Most cases of human babesiosis occur during the summer months and are endemic in the northeastern US, including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York. Outbreaks have also occurred in Wisconsin, Minnesota, California, and Washington. In the US, most clinically apparent disease occurs primarily in those patients with advanced age or those with underlying ...

PREVENTION OF TICK-BORNE ILLNESS

FRI, 18 MAY 2012 16:06:34 +0100

Lyme disease and other tick-borne illnesses have become increasingly common in the US. Suburban development, adventurous habits, and increased recognition are likely all responsible for these trends. In 2010, nearly 30,000 cases of Lyme disease were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Clinicians seeking to advise patients regarding the prevention of Lyme and the other tick-borne illnesses are challenged by a complex field at the intersection of vector biology, microbiology, and infectious disease.

DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATION OF A LOOP‐MEDIATED ISOTHERMAL AMPLIFICATION ASSAY FOR RAPID DETECTION OF BORRELIA BURGDORFERI S. L. IN TICKS

WED, 16 MAY 2012 16:30:51 +0100

SummaryA loop‐mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay was developed to detect Borrelia burgdorferi s. l. in ticks, which is a pathogen that causes Lyme disease. Cross‐reactions with Chlamydia psittaci, Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. capri and some tick‐borne pathogens were excluded. Analytical sensitivity of LAMP showed its detection limit was from 0.02 to 0.2 pg of DNA in detection of the reference samples at 65°C for 40 min. The performance of LAMP was assessed by testing 110 samples from susceptible tick species and comparing the results with conventional and nested PCR tests previously described. The results demonstrated that LAMP was significantly more sensitive than the conventional PCR (32.7% versus 15.5%, P < 0.05) and slightly more sensitive, although not sign...

CXCL13 IS THE MAJOR DETERMINANT FOR B CELL RECRUITMENT TO THE CSF DURING NEUROINFLAMMATION

INTRAVENOUS ANTIBIOTICS USED IN DERMATOLOGY

WED, 16 MAY 2012 04:00:00 +0100

ABSTRACTIt is not common for dermatologists to use intravenous antibiotics in daily practice. However, there are several serious infections that may come to the attention of a dermatologist because of cutaneous signs and symptoms. It is important for dermatologists to be familiar with the presenting symptoms, various stages of disease, and treatment for such infections, as good outcomes are achieved by early recognition and use of appropriate therapy. The following section reviews the treatment, with a focus on intravenous antimicrobial therapy, for several serious infections important to dermatologists: syphilis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Lyme disease, cellulitis, methicillin‐resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Vibrio vulnificans, and necrotizing fasciitis.

B. BURGDORFERI PLASMINOGEN RECEPTOR [CELL BIOLOGY]

FRI, 11 MAY 2012 04:00:00 +0100

Host-derived proteases are crucial for the successful infection of vertebrates by several pathogens, including the Lyme disease spirochete bacterium, Borrelia burgdorferi. B. burgdorferi must traverse tissue barriers in the tick vector during transmission to the host and during dissemination within the host, and it must disrupt immune challenges to successfully complete its infectious cycle. It has been proposed that B. burgdorferi can accomplish these tasks without an endogenous extra-cytoplasmic protease by commandeering plasminogen, the highly abundant precursor of the vertebrate protease plasmin. However, the molecular mechanism by which B. burgdorferi immobilizes plasminogen to its surface remains obscure. The data presented here demonstrate that the outer surface protein C (OspC) of ...

A counterpart human gene contributes to a shift from metabolizing alcohol to the formation of fat in heavy drinkers. This shift can lead to fatty liver syndrome -- a precursor to cirrhosis.

BETTER BLOOD SCREENING PROCESS NEEDED TO PREVENT BABESIOSIS TRANSMISSION

TUE, 20 OCT 2009 11:16:16 EDT

Babesiosis is a potentially dangerous parasitic disease transmitted by ticks and is common in the Northeast and the upper Midwest. It can also be transmitted through a blood transfusion from an infected but otherwise asymptomatic blood donor. A new study finds a dramatic increase in the number of transfusion-transmitted babesiosis cases, leading to a call for a better screening test in blood donors living in areas of the country where babesiosis is prevalent.

RESEARCHERS TO PROBE WHETHER LYME DISEASE WILL FOLLOW SPREAD OF TICKS ACROSS U.S.

WED, 16 SEP 2009 17:33:33 EDT

Potentially debilitating Lyme disease doesn't afflict people everywhere that the ticks harboring it are found. At least not yet. A five-university consortium wants to find out why. "These ticks are on the move. As ticks expand into new areas, more people will likely become infected," said Michigan State University fisheries and wildlife assistant professor Jean Tsao.

INFLAMMATORY DISEASE TREATMENTS TO IMPROVE THROUGH USE OF LIPIDOMICS

TUE, 01 SEP 2009 16:39:39 EDT

According to the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, 46 million Americans have arthritis. Many of these people take over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications that block production of certain molecules, known as bioactive lipids, to reduce pain and swelling. Yet, the role of these lipids is not yet understood completely, and medications may have adverse side effects. Recently, researchers completed the first comprehensive analysis of bioactive lipids in an inflammatory response.

US CROP YIELDS COULD WILT IN HEAT

A research team has illuminated the important role of natural killer T cells in Lyme disease, demonstrating that the once little understood white blood cells are central to clearing the bacterial infection and reducing the intensity and duration of arthritis associated with Lyme disease.

VACCINE AND DRUG RESEARCH AIMED AT TICKS AND MOSQUITOES TO PREVENT DISEASE TRANSMISSION

TUE, 02 DEC 2008 17:08:08 EST

Most successful vaccines and drugs rely on protecting humans or animals by blocking certain bacteria from growing in their systems. But a new theory actually hopes to take stopping infectious diseases such as West Nile virus and Malaria to the next level by disabling insects from transmitting these viruses.

INFLUENCE OF CLIMATE WARMING ON THE INCREASE IN TICK-BORNE DISEASES

SAT, 29 NOV 2008 10:01:01 EST

Rises in the ambient temperature modify the behavior of dog ticks and increase their affinity for humans. There is thus a risk that episodes of global warming may be associated with epidemics of tick-borne diseases.

STUDY DOCUMENTS WHAT MAY BE FIRST CASES OF CERTAIN TICK-BORNE DISEASE IN CHINA

TUE, 18 NOV 2008 16:12:12 EST

It appears that for the first time human granulocytic anaplasmosis, an emerging tick-borne infectious disease found in the US and Europe, has been identified in China and apparently was transmitted from person to person, according to a new study.

WED, 19 MAR 2008 19:30:30 EDT

Lyme disease is the blight of countryside users but it may be prevented with a single injection, according to research in the Journal of Medical Microbiology. Researchers found that a new formulation that is programmed to release the anti-Lyme disease drug over a 20 day period was 100% effective.

PROTEIN IN DEER TICK SALIVA PREVENTS HIV-1 FROM ATTACHING TO T CELLS

SUN, 17 FEB 2008 22:44:44 EST

The HIV-1 virus cripples the human immune system by targeting white blood cells called T cells that form the body's first line of defense in fighting infections. A recent study shows that a protein found in the saliva of deer ticks prevents the HIV-1 virus from attaching to the surface of T cells, which is the critical first step in the virus' attack strategy. Since the protein suppresses the action of T cells, it may also prove to be an effective treatment for autoimmune diseases like asthma and multiple sclerosis caused by an overactive immune system that mounts an attack against the body's own cells and tissues, and it could be useful to suppress the immune system to prevent the rejection of transplanted organs.

It's been clearly shown that decreasing the deer population decreases the deer tick population and the incidence of Lyme Disease.  For instance in Bridgeport CT, lowering the deer population 74% resulted in a 92% decrease in nymphal deer ticks. In Groton CT the deer population was reduced from 77 per square mile to 10 per square mile, and the Lyme Disease incidence decreased by 83%.  This makes sense because the adult deer ticks require a large mammal to reproduce. The mice and birds can host the smaller larvae and nymphs, but these come from the eggs laid by the adults.  Killing the deer stops the cycle.

Several years ago the state of New Hampshire decided to get rid of all the deer in the state, but it DID NOT STOP  THE SPREAD  OF LYME DISEASE  !!! Whitefooted mice and birds are the main carriers of deer ticks. I got lyme disease way back in the 1980's but was misdiagnosed by 14 doctors and medical centers. I diagnosed my husband and myself in 1990. If we had not been treated aggressively by a lyme-literate doctor we may have ended up in a nursing home. We need to join forces and share information with all the other states who share this LYME EPIDEMIC. New York, Conn., New Jersey, Georgia,Minn., California, etc , etc. PENNSYLVANIA LEADS THE NATION WITH THE MOST CASES OF LYME DISEASE.  We live in ELK COUNTY AND SHARE THE DISTINCTION OF BEING FIRST ALONG WITH CAMERON COUNTY WITH THE MOST CASES OF LYME FOR THE PAST 23 YEARS.

The horrific effects of Lyme Disease are largely unknown by the public.
The Lyme Disease epidemic has been caused by the deer epidemic.  Because of their large size, deer are the
primary host of the adult tick, which requires a sizeable blood meal from a
larger mammal for reproduction. Because of their large range, the deer spread
around the adult ticks, each of which lays thousands of eggs. These eggs hatch
into larvae and then nymphs which feed primarily on small mammals like
mice.  Eliminating the deer host
interrupts this cycle.  As reported by
Gail Collins in The New York Times
5/31/12, Paul Curtis, extension wildlife specialist at Cornell University, says
that to get the tick population down to a reasonable level, “you need deer
densities of 6-8 deer per square mile or less. 
In the urban-rural fringes of many large metropolitan areas it’s not
unusual to have densities of 100-200 deer/square mile.”   Studies in Connecticut and elsewhere have
shown that decreasing the deer population results in a decrease in the
incidence of Lyme Disease (see pages 2-4):

ASSIST. The only thing they assist with is helping vaccine companies KILL US. The CDC knows that the stealth pathogens are folding at least 40% of their genes to hide from STUPID antibody tests they gave us so the infections would not be seen. It is the cause of ALL SYNDROMES including the 1 in 29 or 1 in 9 depending on how criminal you are desribing the data used.

The worlds leading expert of PrionSynergy/AIDS/Lyme in collaboraton with China has found their lies and all syndromes and chronic illness can be treated by killing those infections that are sharing their genes...But like Big Banks, and Big Oil we suffer for our money, they have suffered our LIVES much much worse to protect their filthy lucre.

The CDC is *involved* in the Lyme Crymes.  CDC officers (Barbara Johnson, is one of them) own several patents in Europe *with* SmithKline which show that they know the current diagnostic standard for Lyme is RESEARCH FRAUD (a lie). 

They, the CDC, the same year (1992) sent CDC employee Allen Steere on a junket to Germany to falsify the testing for Lyme.  The truth about the testing for Lyme, however, would render CDC staff officer patents unusable as vaccines or test kit antigens.

Public health officials dangerously downplay the dangers of the Lyme Disease
epidemic.   It is represented as being
easy to diagnose and cure.  Yet most
infections are transmitted by the minute poppy-seed-sized nymphs which are
often not noticed, especially when in the hair, etc.  70% of victims never have a rash, and the
rash, which is often not the advertised bulls-eye, is frequently missed.  20% of patients initially treated with
antibiotics go on to develop symptoms (joints, brain, heart, etc.) later. An
increasing number are developing other co-infections, since the deer tick
carries many diseases.

From the beginning, the seriousness of Lyme Disease has been downplayed
as has the role of the epidemic deer which are true biological WMD. We were
lured into Iraq in quest of fictitious WMD and told we would be greeted as
liberators and that Iraqi oil would pay for our expenses. Similarly we were
told Lyme was easy to spot (bulls-eye) and easy to cure (one pill).  All lies. Many people don't have a bulls-eye rash, and one pill is generally inadequate.

How long will the Lyme Cryme be allowed to continue? How many more will continue to suffer? How many more will die? Letters and pleas for help continue to fall on deaf ears. I do hope that one day all of those involved in the Lyme crime will be held accountable.
I urge you to read the letter by Kathleen Dickson. The Lyme community as a whole is watching and we are desperately waiting for justice.
