BARTONELLA EXPERT AND SPECIALIST USES ADVANCED TESTING TO YIELD NEW FINDINGS AND TOP INFORMATION
IN RECENT BARTONELLA SPECIES DISCUSSIONS WITH DR. BREITSCHWERDT, I WAS SO DEEPLY MOVED THAT WE HAVE HAD THE SAME DRIVE AND PASSION ABOUT THE SERIOUSNESS OF BARTONELLA.
WE BOTH HAVE SAID IN DIFFERENT WAYS THAT THIS IS HARDLY A TOSS IN WITH LYME DISEASE, AND I HAVE DEALT WITH PURE CITY DWELLERS IMMENSELY ILL WITH BARTONELLA.
HE IS FRUSTRATED THAT NIH HAS ONE STUDY GOING ON BARTONELLA. I AM FRUSTRATED THAT WE BOTH FEEL TESTING AND TREATMENTS ARE POOR, AND IN OTHER PAPERS SHOWN TO RELAPSE, WHICH I HAVE SEEN HUNDREDS OF TIMES, ANS SUSPECT SO HAS THIS EXCEPTIONAL RESEARCHER.
BARTONELLA IS A HUMBLING ILLNESS. YOU REALIZE AFTER READING YOUR FIRST 1,000 ARTICLES, ALL YOU KNEW WAS WRONG, AND AFTER INHERITING "CURED" PEOPLE TREATED WITH THE COMMON CLIQUE LEVAQUIN, RIFAMPIN, ZITHROMAX, BURBUR, BARDEROL OR 50 OTHER TREATMENTS, THAT THEY DO NOT CURE, THEY STUN AT BEST.
DR. BREITSCHWERDT IS QUITE BLUNT THAT THIS IS VERY CHALLENGING RESEARCH, AND IS HARDLY MERELY TOSSING BARTONELLA ON A PETRI DISH AND WAITING FOREVER FOR THIS SLOW GROWING MONSTER INFECTION TO GROW.
MY GOD BLESS HIS SWEAT AND SINCERE HARD WORK. WE MIGHT TEST FOR OTHER TICK AND FLEA INFECTIONS DIFFERENTLY, BUT WHO CARES, THIS IS PERHAPS THE WORLD VETERINARY RESEARCHER ON PERHAPS ON OF THE MOST COMMON AND DANGEROUS INFECTIONS ON EARTH. SO SOMEONE GET THIS SUPERIOR RESEARCHER MONEY TO SAVE HUMAN AND ANIMAL LIVES!
Discovery Of New Bartonella Species That Infects Humans
07 Jan 2009
Researchers have produced the first link between a new species of bacteria most commonly found in sheep and human illness.
Dr. Edward Breitschwerdt and Dr. Ricardo Maggi isolated the bacterium Bartonella melophagi from samples of human blood.
B. melophagi is a newly discovered member of the genus Bartonella... its name has yet to be formally accepted. In nature, sheep are the most likely hosts for B. melophagi and transmission among sheep is thought to occur via a wingless fly known as a ked. The route(s) of transmission to humans is unknown.
The blood samples came from previously healthy women who were suffering from symptoms including muscle fatigue and weakness. It is not known if indirect testing was done for Babesia. One of the patients had been diagnosed with pericarditis, an inflammation of the membrane surrounding the heart. B. melophagi was present in blood samples from both women; and a second strain of Bartonella, henselae, a strain of the bacterium which has been associated with human neurological illnesses and fatigue, was amazingly also isolated from one of the samples—two species in one person!
The research marks the first time that this particular strain of Bartonella has been cultured from human blood and associated with human illness.
"Over the past decade, there has been a rapid expansion in the number of Bartonella species that are documented human pathogens," Breitschwerdt says.
"A small number of Bartonella in the bloodstream can cause infection, and this fact, coupled with the large variety of transmission routes by which people can become infected, make the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the illnesses caused by this bacteria a real challenge," Maggi adds. "I think it's critical that we discover more about how this bacteria infects people, and how Bartonella infection relates to the subsequent development of progressive illnesses in humans."
