May 21st, 2013 – May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month
From protomyxzoa.org website:
Protomyxzoa Rheumatica is a newly-discovered infectious organism that causes chronic disease. Protomyxzoa was discovered by Fry Laboratories of Scottsdale AZ. Although they have published no scientific papers on the organism, they offer a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) DNA test for the organism, and they have done substantial work on culturing, characterizing and sequencing the DNA of the organism. Unfortunately, all this work remains unpublished.
Fry Labs says that protomyxzoa is in the “malaria family” of protozoans, along with babesia and malaria, based on DNA sequencing of the 18s ribosome subunit. Protomyxzoa, babesia and malaria have a multi-stage life cycle. Like malaria and babesia, protomyxzoa appears to have an immature form that infects red blood cells (erythrocytes), and a mature form that remains in the blood. It does not appear to invade other tissues. Mature protomyxzoa surrounds itself with thick, copious biofilm substances to protect itself from the host immune system. It is believed that this biofilm contributes to various symptoms depending on its location and quantity. Protomyxzoa will cause capillary inflammation and reduced blood flow in locations where it accumulates. It is also believed that the biofilm can harbor secondary infections (e.g. other bacteria) which can cause further variations in symptoms and test results.
This website was created because there is so little information available on protomyxzoa. There are no published scientific papers. There is only one published interview with Dr Fry, the discoverer of protomyxoza.
