LYME DISEASE UPDATE (good news!)

LYME DISEASE UPDATE:
One of the many problems with the Lyme disease bacteria is that when under attack, they can coat themselves with a biofilm. Think ‘getting slimed from ghostbusters…

bill-murray-ghostbusters-slimed

…in fact:
 
“A biofilm is any group of microorganisms in which cells stick to each other and often these cells adhere to a surface. Biofilm is a polymeric conglomeration generally composed of extracellular DNA, proteins, and polysaccharides. These adherent cells are frequently embedded within a self-produced matrix of extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) which may also be referred to as SLIME (although not everything described as slime is a biofilm).” wiki
 
Is this mucous-y armor-y biofilm strong? Strong enough to withstand the antibiotics used to kill them and tadpole biofilm has even been found intact from the Miocene era so, yeah. Lyme disease bacteria can morph back and forth into this armor-like biofilm when attacked and remove it when it is going about its normal (destructive) life cycle. In fact, antibiotics like doxycycline, the standard treatment for Lyme disease, actually trigger the bacteria into producing this biofilm armor.

“The culprit behind Lyme disease, which is a bacterial infection, is spirochete bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi. The antibiotics proven to kill this form of bacteria are doxycycline and amoxicillin. However, Borrelia burgdorferi can be found in morphological forms, including spirochetes, spheroplast (or L-form), round bodies, and biofilms. When conditions are considered unfavourable for the bacteria, it morphs into the dormant round body, then hides in a biofilm form. When conditions are favourable, however, it can shift back to its spirochete form.”
 
So what’s a Lyme disease sufferer to do when THE TREATMENT essentially STRENGTHENS the antibiotic resistance of the PATHOGEN?

THE GOOD NEWS:
A new study shows there is increased hope for Lyme disease sufferers. The use of Stevia, a common sugar, has been fond to destroy the biofilm. Taking STEVIA and ANTIBIOTICS will destroy the biofilm and the bacteria more effectively:

“Subculture experiments with Stevia and antibiotics treated cells were established for 7 and 14 days yielding, no and 10% viable cells, respectively compared to the above-mentioned antibiotics and antibiotic combination. When Stevia and the three antibiotics were tested against attached biofilms, Stevia significantly reduced B. burgdorferi forms. Results from this study suggest that a natural product such as Stevia leaf extract could be considered as an effective agent against B. burgdorferi.”

UPDATE: JUNE 13TH 

In the next step of what may become the most monumental piece of medical legislature,

THE GOVERNOR OF TEXAS SIGNED HB 810!

HB 810 will be effective on 9/1/17  

I express virtually no surprise what so ever that there has been no media coverage of this.*  The only piece of confirming data I can find is on the Texas Legislature site and in articles written by the tireless and noble Patient Warriors, around the world, who have been fighting for their lives and for this for years.

 

HB-810
[original article below]
………………………………………………………………
Around the world, stem cells have been used for therapeutic application for decades, treating incurable illnesses, recovering terminal patients and improving qualities of life of untold numbers.  In some form or another, Rafael Nadal got them…along with Peyton Manning, Jarvis Greene, Kobe Bryant and Dana White and hundreds or thousands of other athletes and weekend warriors but mostly outside the US because they weren’t available here.
Sadly, we in the US were…a little slow…to get the message. Foolishly allowing ourselves to get embroiled in the distracting political, financial and religious controversies; we have not been allowed to treat our sick and dying. Tragically, listening to the uninformed who said: “they are unproven!” despite thousands of studies and trials from around the world, the US stuck to our guns and enjoyed some of the worst medical care in the world.  I wrote this in 2010:
“We are in fact about 8 years behind most of the developed world in stem cell research. The WHO ranks our health system at 37th, our life expectancy is 30th in the world, infant mortality is 34th in the world and this is all with our Health Expenditures as a % of GDP being almost the highest in the world (we are ranked #2).”
Like many before and after him, Gov Perry made some in roads in 2012 but hit the wall of American “backward thinking.” https://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/2012/04/14/texas-oks-experimental-stem-cell-therapy-limits-questions/
Now, Texas, House Bill 810 amended the bill which was “relating to the provision of certain investigational stem cell treatments to patients with certain severe chronic diseases or terminal illnesses and regulating the possession, use, and transfer of adult stem cells; creating a criminal offense,” and passed the Senate, unanimously.
STEM CELLS FOR SCLERODERMA
This is the bill now:

The bill is on its way to the Governor’s office for signature. This has been a LONG time coming.

A hearty congratulations goes out especially to the tireless patient advocates/patient warriors who said: “no more!” and threw off the yoke of servitude to a medical system which no longer served their self-interests. Their efforts and those of many, many others have inexorably, infinitesimally, pushed the needle over time against multiple immovable objects.

What happens next?  There will be chaos, turmoil and scrambling.  There will be resistance and bad mouthing and nay saying…and in the end, Texas industry will likely generate billions in revenue, treat the un-treatable, recover the unrecoverable, extend the lives of those told to get their affairs in order and become THE center of regenerative medical innovation in the US, if not, the world.

I now see that there was media coverage; we just apparently beat them all to the punch.  I am more than pleased that this advance is getting mass media coverage!
