  1. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/05/160511105352.htm Too much folate in pregnant women increases risk for autism, study suggests Jan, your remarks made me think of this. I remember some being unimpressed with this research although I don't remember the specific criticism.
  2. Have you read up on Hashimoto? I don't know much on the subject but I think anti-TG is a marker?
  3. http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/21645515.2015.1062955?src=recsys Do vitamin D levels affect antibody titers produced in response to HPV vaccine? Those with lower vitamin D levels produced higher titers. Interesting. Taking a guess that TH1 might be suppressed and TH2 heightened in lower D individuals.
  4. Don't want to hijack the topic but I have to point out something in that link under "multiple potential triggers," where vaccines are listed you see (eppur si muove) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/And_yet_it_moves
  5. kakrpa, Have you read this from Dr. T? http://pandasinstitute.org/blog/2013/10/10-9-2013 I had never seen it before your post caught my attention. It doesn't go in depth but does mention low IgE/IgG4
  6. Thanks for the update. Sure hope any negative effects disappear quickly. I've heard if antivirals are started fairly early on, it does seem to take some of the punch out. Personally, I would like to go the all natural route but not sure at this point. I don't even know if my kids would get shingles or chicken pox. They have had one dose only too. I know someone who got shingles in their late 40's. He decided not to take the Valtrex which had been prescribed. Dr. seemed puzzled that the case seemed as severe as it was (he didn't let on that he hadn't taken) so I'm assuming that it
  7. Jan, I was wondering if the kids who don't show a response to steroids and seem not to respond or have a lot of problems with phama drugs/antibiotics, are in fact signaling a problem with this type of TH response. MDR1 function is something I would like to take a closer look at. More hours in a day please,lol. Here, we report that high-level IL23R expression within human memory T cells is restricted to a subset of CCR6+CXCR3hiCCR4loCCR10−CD161+ cells that selectively expresses the multi-drug transporter MDR1 (also known as P-glycoprotein [P-gp] and ABCB1). MDR1 is an ATP-dependen
  8. SFH, Can you update on how your daughter is doing with the shingles? If you're looking for a bright spot, those who get shingles at a younger age are supposed to be at much less risk for PHN (postherpetic neuralgia). They're finally admitting that the chicken pox vaccine is causing more shingles and at a younger age. I think the latest report says something about 30's? Then they point out the thing about younger age being assoc. with less PHN. My question is, what happens when a young woman gets this while pregnant? Are we working up to a shingles vaccine along with a flu vacc
  9. The plot thickens on TH17 Resistant to steroids/ this type found in Crohn's/ interesting stuff/bolding mine http://jem.rupress.org/content/211/1/89.long Pro-inflammatory human Th17 cells selectively express P-glycoprotein and are refractory to glucocorticoids IL-17A–expressing CD4+ T cells (Th17 cells) are generally regarded as key effectors of autoimmune inflammation. However, not all Th17 cells are pro-inflammatory. Pathogenic Th17 cells that induce autoimmunity in mice are distinguished from nonpathogenic Th17 cells by a unique transcriptional signature, including high Il23
  10. PR40, When I read the article that you linked, I noticed this one as I started clicking around that site. Thanks for posting. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/152822.php?trendmd-shared=0 Hydrangea Root Shows Promise In Treating Autoimmune Disorders An exciting new area in the field of autoimmune disease research is learning about the role of a particular immune system cell called the T helper 17 (Th17) which is genetically different from other types of CD4+ T cell like the Th1, Th2 and T-regulatory cells and appears to play a unique role in the part of the immune system
  11. I'm reading of missing signatures and possible tampering. Does anyone from Cal. have any info?

  13. This is a young man's account (video) of a younger age of onset with later increase in symptoms and PANS diagnosis. http://pandasnetwork.org/latest-news/page/28/
  14. Mumofthree, I have to ask. Is there a chance that this girl was in the process of the Gardasil/HPV series. It seems that highly athletic people are more prone to adverse events with that vaccine in particular. Her story sounds a lot like others that I have read in relationship to a bad out come with that vax.
  15. I have donated already and I hope others from other states will too. Was anyone else astounded that Carson made the remarks that he did during the debate? I knew Trump's stance, although I was not impressed with his remarks but my mouth fell open when Carson chimed in.
