A Look at Infectious Agents as a Possible Causative Factor in Cardiovascular Disease: Part III
The link between infection and cardiovascular disease has been assessed by measuring the presence of antibodies against the pathogen. There are several mechanisms by which the immune response to a virus can result in immunopathology. Knowledge about molecular mimicry...
Elevated IgG Antibody to Aluminum Bound to Human Serum Albumin in Patients with Crohn’s, Celiac and Alzheimer’s Disease
Abstract: Aluminum is in our water and food, and is used as an adjuvant in vaccines. About 40% of the ingested dose accumulates within the intestinal mucosa, making the gut the main target of inflammation and autoimmunity; about 1% accumulates in the skeletal system...
Fact check: No definitive evidence COVID-19 vaccine causes autoimmune disease
The end of the pandemic may be nigh as more than half of adults across 25 states are fully vaccinated, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But the end of one health crisis supposedly opens the door to another: autoimmune disease.
Reaction of Human Monoclonal Antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 Proteins With Tissue Antigens: Implications for Autoimmune Diseases
We sought to determine whether immune reactivity occurs between anti-SARS-CoV-2 protein antibodies and human tissue antigens, and whether molecular mimicry between COVID-19 viral proteins and human tissues could be the cause.
Potential antigenic cross-reactivity between SARS-CoV-2 and human tissue with a possible link to an increase in autoimmune diseases
Since the outbreak of COVID-19 caused by SARS-CoV-2, we tested 5 different blood specimens that were confirmed positive for SARS-CoV-2 IgG and IgM antibodies.
Correlation between Antibodies to Bacterial Lipopolysaccharides and Barrier Proteins in Sera Positive for ASCA and ANCA
Abstract: Individuals with intestinal barrier dysfunction are more prone to autoimmunity. Lipopolysaccharides (LPS) from gut bacteria have been shown to play a role in systemic inflammation, leading to the opening of the gut and blood‐brain barrier (BBB).
Reaction of Lectin-Specific Antibody with Human Tissue: Possible Contributions to Autoimmunity
The aim of this study was to examine the direct reaction of specific lectin/agglutinin antibodies to different tissue antigens to
confirm the theory that reactivity between them may contribute to autoimmunities.
Interaction between food antigens and the immune system: Association with autoimmune disorders
It has been shown that environmental factors such as infections, chemicals, and diet play a major role in autoimmune diseases; however, relatively little attention has been given to food components as the most prevalent modifiers of these afflictions.
Food-Associated Autoimmunities: When Food Breaks Your Immune System
The new book from Drs. Aristo and Elroy Vojdani is now available online from Amazon and Barnes & Noble! "Food-Associated Autoimmunities: When Food Breaks Your Immune System" tells you all you need to know about the role certain foods play in the development of...
Neuroimmunity and the Brain-Gut Connection (Functional Neurology)
Bi-directional communication between the central nervous system (CNS) and the enteric nervous system (ENS) occurs both in health and disease. Various CNS- and gut-directed stressors stimulate the brain-gut axis. Processes modulating responsiveness to stressors along...
