PATHOGENIC MYCOPLASMA
A Common Disease Agent Weaponised
There are 200 species of Mycoplasma. Most are innocuous and do no
harm; only four or five are pathogenic. Mycoplasma fermentans
(incognitus strain) probably comes from the nucleus of the Brucella
bacterium. This disease agent is not a bacterium and not a virus; it
is a mutated form of the Brucella bacterium, combined with a visna
virus, from which the mycoplasma is extracted.
The pathogenic Mycoplasma used to be very innocuous, but biological
warfare research conducted between 1942 and the present time has
resulted in the creation of more deadly and infectious forms of
Mycoplasma. Researchers extracted this mycoplasma from the Brucella
bacterium and actually reduced the disease to a crystalline form.
They "weaponised" it and tested it on an unsuspecting public in North
America.
Dr Maurice Hilleman, chief virologist for the pharmaceutical company
Merck Sharp & Dohme, stated that this disease agent is now carried by
everybody in North America and possibly most people throughout the
world.
Despite reporting flaws, there has clearly been an increased
incidence of all the neuro/systemic degenerative diseases since World
War II and especially since the 1970s with the arrival of previously
unheard-of diseases like chronic fatigue syndrome and AIDS.
According to Dr Shyh-Ching Lo, senior researcher at The Armed Forces
Institute of Pathology and one of America's top mycoplasma
researchers, this disease agent causes many illnesses including AIDS,
cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn's colitis, Type I diabetes,
multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Wegener's disease and
collagen-vascular diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and
Alzheimer's.
Dr Charles Engel, who is with the US National Institutes of Health,
Bethesda, Maryland, stated the following at an NIH meeting on
February 7, 2000: "I am now of the view that the probable cause of
chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia is the mycoplasma.. ."
I have all the official documents to prove that mycoplasma is the
disease agent in chronic fatigue syndrome/fibromyalg ia as well as in
AIDS, multiple sclerosis and many other illnesses. Of these, 80% are
US or Canadian official government documents, and 20% are articles
from peer-reviewed journals such as the Journal of the American
Medical Association, New England Journal of Medicine and the Canadian
Medical Association Journal. The journal articles and government
documents complement each other.

How the Mycoplasma Works
The mycoplasma acts by entering into the individual cells of the
body, depending upon your genetic predisposition.
You may develop neurological diseases if the pathogen destroys
certain cells in your brain, or you may develop Crohn's colitis if
the pathogen invades and destroys cells in the lower bowel.
Once the mycoplasma gets into the cell, it can lie there doing
nothing sometimes for 10, 20 or 30 years, but if a trauma occurs like
an accident or a vaccination that doesn't take, the mycoplasma can
become triggered.
Because it is only the DNA particle of the bacterium, it doesn't have
any organelles to process its own nutrients, so it grows by uptaking
pre-formed sterols from its host cell and it literally kills the
cell; the cell ruptures and what is left gets dumped into the
bloodstream.

II - CREATION OF THE MYCOPLASMA
A Laboratory-Made Disease Agent
Many doctors don't know about this mycoplasma disease agent because
it was developed by the US military in biological warfare
experimentation and it was not made public. This pathogen was
patented by the United States military and Dr Shyh-Ching Lo. I have a
copy of the documented patent from the US Patent Office.1
All the countries at war were experimenting with biological weapons.
In 1942, the governments of the United States, Canada and Britain
entered into a secret agreement to create two types of biological
weapons (one that would kill, and one that was disabling) for use in
the war against Germany and Japan, who were also developing
biological weapons. While they researched a number of disease
pathogens, they primarily focused on the Brucella bacterium and began
to weaponise it.
From its inception, the biowarfare program was characterized by
continuing in-depth review and participation by the most eminent
scientists, medical consultants, industrial experts and government
officials, and it was classified Top Secret.
The US Public Health Service also closely followed the progress of
biological warfare research and development from the very start of
the program, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the
National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States were working
with the military in weaponising these diseases. These are diseases
that have existed for thousands of years, but they have been
weaponised-- which means they've been made more contagious and more
effective. And they are spreading.
The Special Virus Cancer Program, created by the CIA and NIH to
develop a deadly pathogen for which humanity had no natural immunity
(AIDS), was disguised as a war on cancer but was actually part of
MKNAOMI.2 Many members of the Senate and House of Representatives do
not know what has been going on. For example, the US Senate Committee
on Government Reform had searched the archives in Washington and
other places for the document titled "The Special Virus Cancer
Program: Progress Report No. 8", and couldn't find it. Somehow they
heard I had it, called me and asked me to mail it to them. Imagine: a
retired schoolteacher being called by the United States Senate and
asked for one of their secret documents! The US Senate, through the
Government Reform Committee, is trying to stop this type of
government research.

Crystalline Brucella
The title page of a genuine US Senate Study, declassified on February
24, 1977, shows that George Merck, of the pharmaceutical company,
Merck Sharp & Dohme (which now makes cures for diseases that at one
time it created), reported in 1946 to the US Secretary of War that
his researchers had managed "for the first time" to "isolate the
disease agent in crystalline form".3
They had produced a crystalline bacterial toxin extracted from the
Brucella bacterium. The bacterial toxin could be removed in
crystalline form and stored, transported and deployed without
deteriorating. It could be delivered by other vectors such as
insects, aerosol or the food chain (in nature it is delivered within
the bacterium). But the factor that is working in the Brucella is the
mycoplasma.
Brucella is a disease agent that doesn't kill people; it disables
them. But, according to Dr Donald MacArthur of the Pentagon,
appearing before a congressional committee in 1969,4 researchers
found that if they had mycoplasma at a certain strength--actually, 10
to the 10th power (1010)--it would develop into AIDS, and the person
would die from it within a reasonable period of time because it could
bypass the natural human defenses. If the strength was 108, the
person would manifest with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia.
If it was 107, they would present as wasting; they wouldn't die and
they wouldn't be disabled, but they would not be very interested in
life; they would waste away.
Most of us have never heard of the disease brucellosis because it
largely disappeared when they began pasteurizing milk, which was the
carrier. One salt shaker of the pure disease agent in a crystalline
form could sicken the entire population of Canada. It is absolutely
deadly, not so much in terms of killing the body but disabling it.
Because the crystalline disease agent goes into solution in the
blood, ordinary blood and tissue tests will not reveal its presence.
The mycoplasma will only crystallize at 8.1 pH, and the blood has a
pH of 7.4 pH. So the doctor thinks your complaint is "all in your
head".

Crystalline Brucella and Multiple Sclerosis

In 1998 in Rochester, New York, I met a former military man, PFC
Donald Bentley, who gave me a document and told me: "I was in the US
Army, and I was trained in bacteriological warfare. We were handling
a bomb filled with brucellosis, only it wasn't brucellosis; it was a
Brucella toxin in crystalline form. We were spraying it on the
Chinese and North Koreans."
He showed me his certificate listing his training in chemical,
biological and radiological warfare. Then he showed me 16 pages of
documents given to him by the US military when he was discharged from
the service. They linked brucellosis with multiple sclerosis, and
stated in one section: "Veterans with multiple sclerosis, a kind of
creeping paralysis developing to a degree of 10% or more disability
within two years after separation from active service, may be
presumed to be service-connected for disability compensation.
Compensation is payable to eligible veterans whose disabilities are
due to service." In other words: "If you become ill with multiple
sclerosis, it is because you were handling this Brucella, and we will
give you a pension. Don't go raising any fuss about it." In these
documents, the government of the United States revealed evidence of
the cause of multiple sclerosis, but they didn't make it known to the
public--or to your doctor.
In a 1949 report, Drs Kyger and Haden suggested "the possibility that
multiple sclerosis might be a central nervous system manifestation of
chronic brucellosis" . Testing approximately 113 MS patients, they
found that almost 95% also tested positive for Brucella.5 We have a
document from a medical journal, which concludes that one out of 500
people who had brucellosis would develop what they call
neurobrucellosis; in other words, brucellosis in the brain, where the
Brucella settles in the lateral ventricles-- where the disease
multiple sclerosis is basically located.6

Contamination of Camp Detrick Lab Workers

A 1948 New England Journal of Medicine report titled "Acute
Brucellosis Among Laboratory Workers" shows us how actively dangerous
this agent is.7 The laboratory workers were from Camp Detrick,
Frederick, Maryland, where they were developing biological weapons.
Even though these workers had been vaccinated, wore rubberized suits
and masks and worked through holes in the compartment, many of them
came down with this awful disease because it is so absolutely and
terrifyingly infectious.
The article was written by Lt Calderone Howell, Marine Corps, Captain
Edward Miller, Marine Corps, Lt Emily Kelly, United States Naval
Reserve, and Captain Henry Bookman. They were all military personnel
engaged in making the disease agent Brucella into a more effective
biological weapon.

III - COVERT TESTING OF MYCOPLASMA

Testing the Dispersal Methods
Documented evidence proves that the biological weapons they were
developing were tested on the public in various communities without
their knowledge or consent.
The government knew that crystalline Brucella would cause disease in
humans. Now they needed to determine how it would spread and the best
way to disperse it. They tested dispersal methods for Brucella suis
and Brucella melitensis at Dugway Proving Ground, Utah, in June and
September 1952. Probably, 100% of us now are infected with Brucella
suis and Brucella melitensis.8
Another government document recommended the genesis of open-air
vulnerability tests and covert research and development programs to
be conducted by the Army and supported by the Central Intelligence
Agency.
At that time, the Government of Canada was asked by the US Government
to cooperate in testing weaponised Brucella, and Canada cooperated
fully with the United States. The US Government wanted to determine
whether mosquitoes would carry the disease and also if the air would
carry it. A government report stated that "open-air testing of
infectious biological agents is considered essential to an ultimate
understanding of biological warfare potentialities because of the
many unknown factors affecting the degradation of micro-organisms in
the atmosphere". 9

Testing via Mosquito Vector in Punta Gorda, Florida

A report from The New England Journal of Medicine reveals that one of
the first outbreaks of chronic fatigue syndrome was in Punta Gorda,
Florida, back in 1957.10 It was a strange coincidence that a week
before these people came down with chronic fatigue syndrome, there
was a huge influx of mosquitoes.
The National Institutes of Health claimed that the mosquitoes came
from a forest fire 30 miles away. The truth is that those mosquitoes
were infected in Canada by Dr Guilford B. Reed at Queen's University.
They were bred in Belleville, Ontario, and taken down to Punta Gorda
and released there.
Within a week, the first five cases ever of chronic fatigue syndrome
were reported to the local clinic in Punta Gorda. The cases kept
coming until finally 450 people were ill with the disease.

Testing via Mosquito Vector in Ontario
The Government of Canada had established the Dominion Parasite
Laboratory in Belleville, Ontario, where it raised 100 million
mosquitoes a month. These were shipped to Queen's University and
certain other facilities to be infected with this crystalline disease
agent. The mosquitoes were then let loose in certain communities in
the middle of the night, so that the researchers could determine how
many people would become ill with chronic fatigue syndrome or
fibromyalgia, which was the first disease to show.
One of the communities they tested it on was the St Lawrence Seaway
valley, all the way from Kingston to Cornwall, in 1984. They let out
hundreds of millions of infected mosquitoes. Over 700 people in the
next four or five weeks developed myalgic encephalomyelitis, or
chronic fatigue syndrome.

IV - COVERT TESTING OF OTHER DISEASE AGENTS
Mad Cow Disease/Kuru/ CJD in the Fore Tribe
Before and during World War II, at the infamous Camp 731 in
Manchuria, the Japanese military contaminated prisoners of war with
certain disease agents.
They also established a research camp in New Guinea in 1942. There
they experimented upon the Fore Indian tribe and inoculated them with
a minced-up version of the brains of diseased sheep containing the
visna virus which causes "mad cow disease" or
Creutzfeldt& endash;Jakob disease.
About five or six years later, after the Japanese had been driven
out, the poor people of the Fore tribe developed what they called
kuru, which was their word for "wasting", and they began to shake,
lose their appetites and die. The autopsies revealed that their
brains had literally turned to mush. They had contracted "mad cow
disease" from the Japanese experiments.
When World War II ended, Dr Ishii Shiro--the medical doctor who was
commissioned as a General in the Japanese Army so he could take
command of Japan's biological warfare development, testing and
deployment-- was captured. He was given the choice of a job with the
United States Army or execution as a war criminal. Not surprisingly,
Dr Ishii Shiro chose to work with the US military to demonstrate how
the Japanese had created mad cow disease in the Fore Indian tribe.
In 1957, when the disease was beginning to blossom in full among the
Fore people, Dr Carleton Gajdusek of the US National Institutes of
Health headed to New Guinea to determine how the minced-up brains of
the visna-infected sheep affected them. He spent a couple of years
there, studying the Fore people, and wrote an extensive report. He
won the Nobel Prize for "discovering" kuru disease in the Fore tribe.

Testing Carcinogens over Winnipeg, Manitoba
In 1953, the US Government asked the Canadian Government if it could
test a chemical over the city of Winnipeg. It was a big city with
500,000 people, miles from anywhere. The American military sprayed
this carcinogenic chemical in a 1,000%-attenuated form, which they
said would be so watered down that nobody would get very sick;
however, if people came to clinics with a sniffle, a sore throat or
ringing in their ears, the researchers would be able to determine
what percentage would have developed cancer if the chemical had been
used at full strength.
We located evidence that the Americans had indeed tested this
carcinogenic chemical--zinc cadmium sulphide--over Winnipeg in 1953.
We wrote to the Government of Canada, explaining that we had solid
evidence of the spraying and asking that we be informed as to how
high up in the government the request for permission to spray had
gone. We did not receive a reply.
Shortly after, the Pentagon held a press conference on May 14, 1997,
where they admitted what they had done. Robert Russo, writing for the
Toronto Star11 from Washington, DC, reported the Pentagon's admission
that in 1953 it had obtained permission from the Canadian Government
to fly over the city of Winnipeg and spray out this chemical--which
sifted down on kids going to school, housewives hanging out their
laundry and people going to work. US Army planes and trucks released
the chemical 36 times between July and August 1953. The Pentagon got
its statistics, which indicated that if the chemical released had
been full strength, approximately a third of the population of
Winnipeg would have developed cancers over the next five years.
One professor, Dr Hugh Fudenberg, MD, twice nominated for the Nobel
Prize, wrote a magazine article stating that the Pentagon came clean
on this because two researchers in Sudbury, Ontario--Don Scott and
his son, Bill Scott--had been revealing this to the public. However,
the legwork was done by other researchers!
The US Army actually conducted a series of simulated germ warfare
tests over Winnipeg. The Pentagon lied about the tests to the mayor,
saying that they were testing a chemical fog over the city, which
would protect Winnipeg in the event of a nuclear attack.
A report commissioned by US Congress, chaired by Dr Rogene Henderson,
lists 32 American towns and cities used as test sites as well.

V - BRUCELLA MYCOPLASMA AND DISEASE
AIDS
The AIDS pathogen was created out of a Brucella bacterium mutated
with a visna virus; then the toxin was removed as a DNA particle
called a mycoplasma. They used the same mycoplasma to develop
disabling diseases like MS, Crohn's colitis, Lyme disease, etc.
In the previously mentioned US congressional document of a meeting
held on June 9, 1969,12 the Pentagon delivered a report to Congress
about biological weapons. The Pentagon stated: "We are continuing to
develop disabling weapons." Dr MacArthur, who was in charge of the
research, said: "We are developing a new lethal weapon, a synthetic
biological agent that does not naturally exist, and for which no
natural immunity could have been acquired."
Think about it. If you have a deficiency of acquired immunity, you
have an acquired immunity deficiency. Plain as that. AIDS.
In laboratories throughout the United States and in a certain number
in Canada including at the University of Alberta, the US Government
provided the leadership for the development of AIDS for the purpose
of population control. After the scientists had perfected it, the
government sent medical teams from the Centers for Disease Control--
under the direction of Dr Donald A. Henderson, their investigator
into the 1957 chronic fatigue epidemic in Punta Gorda--during 1969 to
1971 to Africa and some countries such as India, Nepal and Pakistan
where they thought the population was becoming too large.13 They gave
them all a free vaccination against smallpox; but five years after
receiving this vaccination, 60% of those inoculated were suffering
from AIDS. They tried to blame it on a monkey, which is nonsense.
A professor at the University of Arkansas made the claim that while
studying the tissues of a dead chimpanzee she found traces of HIV.
The chimpanzee that she had tested was born in the United States 23
years earlier. It had lived its entire life in a US military
laboratory where it was used as an experimental animal in the
development of these diseases. When it died, its body was shipped to
a storage place where it was deep-frozen and stored in case they
wanted to analyse it later. Then they decided that they didn't have
enough space for it, so they said, "Anybody want this dead
chimpanzee?" and this researcher from Arkansas said: "Yes. Send it
down to the University of Arkansas. We are happy to get anything that
we can get." They shipped it down and she found HIV in it. That virus
was acquired by that chimpanzee in the laboratories where it was
tested.14

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ Myalgic Encephalomyelitis
Chronic fatigue syndrome is more accurately called myalgic
encephalomyelitis. The chronic fatigue syndrome nomenclature was
given by the US National Institutes of Health because it wanted to
downgrade and belittle the disease.
An MRI scan of the brain of a teenage girl with chronic fatigue
syndrome displayed a great many scars or punctate lesions in the left
frontal lobe area where portions of the brain had literally dissolved
and been replaced by scar tissue. This caused cognitive impairment,
memory impairment, etc. And what was the cause of the scarring? The
mycoplasma. So there is very concrete physical evidence of these
tragic diseases, even though doctors continue to say they don't know
where it comes from or what they can do about it.
Many people with chronic fatigue syndrome, myalgic encephalo-myelitis
and fibromyalgia who apply to the Canada Pensions Plan Review
Tribunal will be turned down because they cannot prove that they are
ill. During 1999 I conducted several appeals to Canada Pensions and
the Workers Compensation Board (WCB, now the Workplace Safety and
Insurance Board) on behalf of people who have been turned down. I
provided documented evidence of these illnesses, and these people
were all granted their pensions on the basis of the evidence that I
provided.
In March 1999, for example, I appealed to the WCB on behalf of a lady
with fibromyalgia who had been denied her pension back in 1993. The
vice-chairman of the board came to Sudbury to hear the appeal, and I
showed him a number of documents which proved that this lady was
physically ill with fibromyalgia. It was a disease that caused
physical damage, and the disease agent was a mycoplasma. The guy
listened for three hours, and then he said to me: "Mr Scott, how is
it I have never heard of any of this before? I said: "We brought a
top authority in this area into Sudbury to speak on this subject and
not a single solitary doctor came to that presentation. "
VI - TESTING FOR MYCOPLASMA IN YOUR BODY
Polymerase Chain Reaction Test

Information is not generally available about this agent because,
first of all, the mycoplasma is such a minutely small disease agent.
A hundred years ago, certain medical theoreticians conceived that
there must be a form of disease agent smaller than bacteria and
viruses. This pathogenic organism, the mycoplasma, is so minute that
normal blood and tissue tests will not reveal its presence as the
source of the disease.
Your doctor may diagnose you with Alzheimer's disease, and he will
say: "Golly, we don't know where Alzheimer's comes from. All we know
is that your brain begins to deteriorate, cells rupture, the myelin
sheath around the nerves dissolves, and so on." Or if you have
chronic fatigue syndrome, the doctor will not be able to find any
cause for your illness with ordinary blood and tissue tests.
This mycoplasma couldn't be detected until about 30 years ago when
the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test was developed, in which a
sample of your blood is examined and damaged particles are removed
and subjected to a polymerase chain reaction. This causes the DNA in
the particles to break down. The particles are then placed in a
nutrient, which causes the DNA to grow back into its original form.
If enough of the substance is produced, the form can be recognised,
so it can be determined whether Brucella or another kind of agent is
behind that particular mycoplasma.

Blood Test
If you or anybody in your family has myalgic encephalomyelitis,
fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis or Alzheimer's, you can send a blood
sample to Dr Les Simpson in New Zealand for testing.
If you are ill with these diseases, your red blood cells will not be
normal doughnut-shaped blood cells capable of being compressed and
squeezed through the capillaries, but will swell up like cherry-
filled doughnuts which cannot be compressed. The blood cells become
enlarged and distended because the only way the mycoplasma can exist
is by uptaking pre-formed sterols from the host cell. One of the best
sources of pre-formed sterols is cholesterol, and cholesterol is what
gives your blood cells flexibility. If the cholesterol is taken out
by the mycoplasma, the red blood cell swells up and doesn't go
through, and the person begins to feel all the aches and pains and
all the damage it causes to the brain, the heart, the stomach, the
feet and the whole body because blood and oxygen are cut off.
And that is why people with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome
have such a terrible time. When the blood is cut off from the brain,
punctate lesions appear because those parts of the brain die. The
mycoplasma will get into portions of the heart muscle, especially the
left ventricle, and those cells will die. Certain people have cells
in the lateral ventricles of the brain that have a genetic
predisposition to admit the mycoplasma, and this causes the lateral
ventricles to deteriorate and die. This leads to multiple sclerosis,
which will progress until these people are totally disabled;
frequently, they die prematurely. The mycoplasma will get into the
lower bowel, parts of which will die, thus causing colitis. All of
these diseases are caused by the degenerating properties of the
mycoplasma.
In early 2000, a gentleman in Sudbury phoned me and told me he had
fibromyalgia. He applied for a pension and was turned down because
his doctor said it was all in his head and there was no external
evidence. I gave him the proper form and a vial, and he sent his
blood to Dr Simpson to be tested. He did this with his family
doctor's approval, and the results from Dr Simpson showed that only
4% of his red blood cells were functioning normally and carrying the
appropriate amount of oxygen to his poor body, whereas 83% were
distended, enlarged and hardened, and wouldn't go through the
capillaries without an awful lot of pressure and trouble. This is the
physical evidence of the damage that is done.

ECG Test
You can also ask your doctor to give you a 24-hour Holter ECG. You
know, of course, that an electrocardiogram is a measure of your
heartbeat and shows what is going on in the right ventricle, the left
ventricle and so on. Tests show that 100% of patients with chronic
fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia have an irregular heartbeat. At
various periods during the 24 hours, the heart, instead of working
happily away going "bump-BUMP, bump-BUMP", every now and again
goes "buhbuhbuhbuhbuhbuh buhbuhbuh" . The T-wave (the waves are called
P, Q, R, S and T) is normally a peak, and then the wave levels off
and starts with the P-wave again. In chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia
patients, the T-wave flattens off, or actually inverts. That means
the blood in the left ventricle is not being squeezed up through the
aorta and around through the body.
My client from Sudbury had this test done and, lo and behold, the
results stated: "The shape of T and S-T suggests left ventricle
strain pattern, although voltage and so on is normal." The doctor had
no clue as to why the T-wave was not working properly. I analysed the
report of this patient who had been turned down by Canada Pensions
and sent it back to them. They wrote back, saying: "It looks like we
may have made a mistake. We are going to give you a hearing and you
can explain this to us in more detail."
So it is not all in your imagination. There is actual physical damage
to the heart. The left ventricle muscles do show scarring. That is
why many people are diagnosed with a heart condition when they first
develop fibromyalgia, but it's only one of several problems because
the mycoplasma can do all kinds of damage.

Blood Volume Test
You can also ask your doctor for a blood volume test. Every human
being requires a certain amount of blood per pound of body weight,
and it has been observed that people with fibromyalgia, chronic
fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis and other illnesses do not have
the normal blood volume their body needs to function properly.
Doctors aren't normally aware of this.
This test measures the amount of blood in the human body by taking
out 5 cc, putting a tracer in it and then putting it back into the
body. One hour later, take out 5 cc again and look for the tracer.
The thicker the blood and the lower the blood volume, the more tracer
you will find.
The analysis of one of my clients stated: "This patient was referred
for red cell mass study. The red cell volume is 16.9 ml per kg of
body weight. The normal range is 25 to 35 ml per kg. This guy has 36%
less blood in his body than the body needs to function." And the
doctor hadn't even known the test existed.
If you lost 36% of your blood in an accident, do you think your
doctor would tell you that you are alright and should just take up
line dancing and get over it? They would rush you to the nearest
hospital and start transfusing you with blood. These tragic people
with these awful diseases are functioning with anywhere from 7% to
50% less blood than their body needs to function.
VII - UNDOING THE DAMAGE
The body undoes the damage itself. The scarring in the brain of
people with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia will be repaired. There
is cellular repair going on all the time. But the mycoplasma has
moved on to the next cell.
In the early stages of a disease, doxycycline may reverse that
disease process. It is one of the tetracycline antibiotics, but it is
not bactericidal; it is bacteriostatic- -it stops the growth of the
mycoplasma. And if the mycoplasma growth can be stopped for long
enough, then the immune system takes over.
Doxycycline treatment is discussed in a paper by mycoplasma expert
Professor Garth Nicholson, PhD, of the Institute for Molecular
Medicine.15 Dr Nicholson is involved in a US$8-million mycoplasma
research program funded by the US military and headed by Dr Charles
Engel of the NIH. The program is studying Gulf War veterans, 450 of
them, because there is evidence to suggest that Gulf War syndrome is
another illness (or set of illnesses) caused by mycoplasma.
