Alzheimer’s hits more than just the memory; patients experience immune system dysfunction as well

Posted on Jun 4, 2019 in Chronic Disease

Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the January 7, 2019 Advanced Medicine Show (click link above to listen to the show) Researchers have discovered that there is a link between inflammation biomarkers in both plasma and cerebrospinal fluid and markers of Alzheimer’s disease-associated pathology. This means that the disease does not only affect memory, but the immune system of patients as well. The study was conducted by a group of researchers from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, together with the University of Wisconsin Alzheimer’s...

Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the November 19, 2018 Advanced Medicine Show (click link above to listen to the show) Clinical trials have shown an association between the autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and maternal immune activation (MIA), an active immune response after an infectious exposure during pregnancy, but this study is the first one to examine its link to an increase in behavioral abnormalities in children. The connection between ASD and MIA is still largely unknown but research suggests than an immune system-mediated subtype of ASD is...

Study links autistic children back to mothers who had chronic respiratory ailments, inflammation during pregnancy

Posted on Nov 23, 2018 in Autism

(Natural News) Clinical trials have shown an association between the autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and maternal immune activation (MIA), an active immune response after an infectious exposure during pregnancy, but this study is the first one to examine its link to an increase in behavioral abnormalities in children. The connection between ASD and MIA is still largely unknown but research suggests than an immune system-mediated subtype of ASD is triggered by changes in the cellular activity such as antibody levels in the mother and/or child. Animal models have revealed that MIA is a risk...

Brain directly connected to immune system, says study

Posted on Jul 30, 2015 in Medical Rewind

Listen to what Dr. Rashid A. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the June 8th Medical Rewind Show ***************************** In a discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching, researchers have found that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. The discovery could have profound implications for diseases from autism to Alzheimer’s to multiple sclerosis, researchers said. “Instead of asking, ‘How do we study the immune response of the brain?’ ‘Why do multiple sclerosis patients have the immune...

Researchers hail new cancer treatment: Unlocking the body’s immune system

Posted on Jul 15, 2015 in Uncategorized

Listen to what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the June 1st Medical Rewind Show.  ********************************** Researchers meeting in Chicago are hailing what they believe may be a potent new weapon in the fight against cancer: the body’s own immune system. An international study found that a combination of two drugs that helped allow the immune system to fight the cancer — ipilimumab and nivolumab — stopped the deadly skin cancer melanoma from advancing for nearly a year in 58% of the cases. Melanoma, though a skin cancer, can...
