The use of antidepressant medication to improve symptoms in autistic children may not be effective.

According to a new statistical review of previously reported studies, the use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRIs) antidepressants did not improve overall function.

“There is no evidence of effect of SSRIs in children and emerging evidence of harm. There is limited evidence of the effectiveness of SSRIs in adults from small studies in which risk of bias is unclear,” according to Katrina Williams of the School of Women’s and Children’s Health at the University of New South Wales in Australia and her team...

"Defective microglia output defective behavior" - Dr. Mario Capecchi

CT teacher

Take a look at the reports of the mass shootings perpetrated by young males. You will find that many of them were on SSRI's...or less frequently Ritalin. Just another inconvenient fact that the drug companies don't want us to know about. The media doesn't even bother to look beneath the surface of these events. Once again this is the new normal. When will people wake up?

@ Benedetta, WILLIE, and Sarah -

Which came first, the "germ" (microbial opportunists) or the "disease" (dysfunctional Terrain)? What is the real culprit? the germ? the disease portal? the vaccine schedules?

Now, at last, we have a roadmap, provided by Dr Mario Capecchi, Dr Chris Shaw, and others, to actually prove causation of certain diseases, not just association, by specific environmental toxins. I pray that it's not too late.

"long-term persistence of vaccine-derived aluminum hydroxide within the body assessed by MMF is associated with cognitive dysfunction, not solely due to chronic pain, fatigue and depression."

"After sacrifice, spinal cord and motor cortex samples were examined by immunohistochemistry. Aluminum-treated mice showed significantly increased apoptosis of motor neurons and increases in reactive astrocytes and microglial proliferation within the spinal cord and cortex. Morin stain detected the presence of aluminum in the cytoplasm of motor neurons with some neurons also testing positive for the presence of hyper-phosphorylated tau protein, a pathological hallmark of various neurological diseases, including Alzheimer?s disease and frontotemporal dementia. A second series of experiments was conducted on mice injected with six doses of aluminum hydroxide. Behavioural analyses in these mice revealed significant impairments in a number of motor functions as well as diminished spatial memory capacity."

I do not think we were letting vaccines off the hook, or the people that pushes them.
Just wondering what it was in 'em that destroyed my kid's and husband's health.

Hard to know how to treat them with out knowing. And I sure hope it is something a lot less drastic than a marrow transplant!

Benedetta

Patrons99 love your comments, always gives me so much to think about.

Answering questions with questions - some times just posing a question makes people stop and think.
Too bad we have not been able to get the CDC, NIH, HHS, FDA to think, especially since people - a whooooole lot of people have reported events after vaccines.

VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM


Patron99

The blood brain barrier(BBB) does not close for an average until 18 months, as you know that means some BBB close before and some BBB close after. All those vaccines given prior and just after 18 months in many children have direct access to these children’s brains. So do all those passenger viruses like SV40 and other ERNA species that become EXRNA species in us.

There are several articles on children getting bone marrow transplants for other reasons like leukemia and improving and resolving their autism just like these rats.

Further bone marrow transplants have helped a lot of autoimmune diseases like Scleroderma. That is why IGg therapy is also recommended as a therapeutic regimen for autistics and I am considering it as well for my child.

VACCINES CAUSE AUTISM

patrons99

Benedetta, I can't resist a comment here.

"Could a virus infect and cause mis- shapen microglial cells?"

Well, I suppose, yes, if we buy into the conventional wisdom, that the "germ" is everything, according to Pasteur's germ theory.

But, how did the virus get there? There had to be a portal for the disease to get past the front-line immune defenses found in our skin and gut. There had to be "friendly" Terrain...i.e., dysfunctional and/or deformed microglial cells.

How and when did the microglial cells become dysfunctional and/or deformed? vitamin deficiency? oxidative stress? nonspecific activation by mercury, aluminum, and squalene?

Did the microglial cells become dysfunctional and/or deformed before or after the germ arrived?

Did the microglial cells become dysfunctional and/or deformed because of the vaccine schedules?

Sarah - the link that you cite, to the Narantuya, et al, paper is VERY recent. This is clearly a VERY important area of future research. Research in this area could lead to better treatments and disease preventive strategies.

I'd be interested in knowing whether there are observable differences in the function of human microglial cells that have never been exposed to the vaccine schedules versus those that have been fully-exposed to the vaccine schedules.

I wonder if LIVE immune macrophages could be studied under darkfield microscopy to study the effects of aluminum adjuvants, thimerosal, and squalene-based adjuvants, on their function and viability. Dr Chris Shaw has published studies somewhat similar to this, if I recall correctly.

Patron99,

here's another study on microglia done by scientist in Japan. They transplanted healthy human microglia into host mice who had stroke and saw singnificant behavioral improvements.. fascinating.


Human Microglia Transplanted in Rat Focal Ischemia Brain Induce Neuroprotection and Behavioral Improvement

http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0011746

Excerpt from the study:

Results:

HMO6 human microglial cells transplantion group demonstrated significant functional recovery compared with control group. At 7 and 14 days after MCAO, infarct volume was significantly reduced in the HMO group. In the HMO6 group, number of apoptotic cells was time-dependently reduced in the infarct core and penumbra. In addition, number of host rat microglia/macrophages and reactive astrocytes was significantly decreased at 7 and 14 days after MCAO in the penumbra. Gene expression of various neurotrophic factors (GDNF, BDNF, VEGF and BMP7) and anti-inflammatory cytokines (IL4 and IL5) was up-regulated in transplanted HMO6 cells of brain tissue compared with those in culture. The expression of GDNF and VEGF in astrocytes in penumbra was significantly up-regulated in the HMO6 group.

Conclusion:

Our results indicate that transplantation of HMO6 human microglial cells reduces ischemic deficits and apoptotic events in stroke animals. The results were mediated by modulation of gliosis and neuroinflammation, and neuroprotection provided by neurotrophic factors of endogenous and transplanted cells-origin.

TEst... Metametrics nutrient and toxic analysis 6 - 8 hours provoked with DMSA to the weight of the individual.
It showed mercury, lead, and enzymatic defect. But much more than that has come out of him since. From my understanding, the only people getting chelation coverage have used provoked tests. Go for it!! If you have proof your kid is sick,, make them prove he/she is not. They will have to run their own tests to counter your proof. Don't let up on them. Make them work for you.

The graphic of the two lab mice, side by side, at the link to Dr Mario Capecchi's work, provided by Sarah, is priceless!

Please note the correct spelling of Dr Capecchi's last name...Capecchi. Sometimes Nobel Prizes are awarded for all of the right reasons. His work is truly revolutionary. Just one doc's humble opinion.

Truthseeker

Treegirl--What specific kind of heavy metal testing did your insurance company accept as proof enough of toxicity that chelation was covered. Hair test? Challenge test? Porphyrin test? Blood test? What lab or labs? Did the tests show mercury toxicity or other heavy metal toxicity, or both? More info could be very helpful to others seeking information and insurance coverage. Thanks.

Sarah - Wow! VERY interesting comment re: Dr Cappechi's work. His theory seems quite plausibe: immune dysfunction to explain neuropsychiatric disease. Thank you so much for the link to his work.

Isn't immune dysfunction becoming a common thread to many if not all of the vaccine-associated diseases? Microglia, the brain's macrophages, are the brain's active immune defenses. Inflammatory macrophages seem to be involved in many instances of putative nonspecific immune stimulation, e.g., in the gut, brain, and muscle.

"Macrophagic myofasciitis (MMF) is an uncommon inflammatory disorder of muscle believed to be due to persistence of vaccine-derived aluminium hydroxide at the site of injection. The condition is characterised by diffuse myalgias, arthralgia and fatigue. We describe a patient with histologically confirmed MMF whose presentation was atypical with left chest and upper limb pain beginning more than 10 years post vaccination. Treatment with steroids led to symptomatic improvement. Although rare, clinicians should consider MMF in cases of atypical myalgia."

http://www.nmd-journal.com/article/S0960-8966%2806%2900466-4/abstract

What is causing the immune dysfunction? How far do we need to look? Both aluminum adjuvants and organomercurial preservatives are both KNOWN NEUROTOXINS. This is not speculative! Based on Cappechi's work, immune function is closely-related to neurologic function. That is positively breathtaking in its implications!

How do immune macrophages handle aluminum, mercury, and squalene? Do mercury, aluminum, and squalene promote release of cytokines?

Why couldn't this be the basis for postulating a UNIFYING THEORY for vaccine toxicity?

The immunologists, toxicologists, and gastroenterologists should take the lead. Because the toxicity of the vaccine schedules is cummulative and poly-systemic, neurologists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, and rheumatologists might have important roles, too.

The immune dysfunction may be a direct consequence of serially injecting over a lifetime, aluminum adjuvants along with thimerosal organomercurial preservatives in the vaccine schedules. Excitotoxins in our food supply, squalene super-adjuvants in the pandemic flu inoculations, and inflammatory cytokines may play a role. With enough stimulation and "priming" of our innate immune systems, cytokine storm, and death.

Based in part on Cappechi's work, ASD, ADD, ADHD, Bipolar disorder, Schizophrenia, Kawasaki's Syndrome, and Inflammatory Bowel Disease, should probably all be taken away from the psychiatrists and turned over to the toxicologists, immunologists, and gastroenterologists.

ASD, ADD, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, KS, and IBD, are likely to all be vaccine-associated diseases. The vaccine schedules are attacking and shooting-holes in our natural immune systems. It time we got serious and systematic about proving it.

Again........... most of these kids do not have any form of Autism which is a noncurable mental disorder. I think the key for the future is this... Do not allow your child to get any label for a neurologicla disorder until the child has been thoroughly tested for metals, immune disfunction, GI disorders, metabolic disorders, and food allergies and intolerances. It is up to the parents to advocate in this direction as most doctors don't have a roadmap........ yet..Demand medical attention... refuse assessment for labels. It worked for us! Chelation is covered.

I found this article to be timely since I am currently reading a book by Robert Whitaker entitled "Anatomy of an Epidemic - Magic Bullets, Psychiatic Drugs and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America"(2010) It is a compelling and disturbing book about the effects of psychiatric medicine on our children and adults. It discusses the changes in brain function that occur due to the medication and statistics that clearly show overall what while there might be a short term improvement initially in symptoms for patients who start these drugs, that the long term data is showing that they appear to cause more harm and dysfunction. He goes into a lot of detail on the different medications used for depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder and results of studies (including NIMH studies). Unmedicated patients had far better overall outcomes then medicated patients in each study which is the opposite of what many would think. Medicated patients showed lower statistics for complete recovery and higher rates of multiple relapes. He discusses how abrubtly stopping these medications can be detrimental to brain functioning and gives some insight into why this may occur. I am about half-way through this book and find haunting parallels between what we are taught about the safety of vaccines (ignoring the evidence we know to the contrary) and how we are led to believe that these SSRIs and other psychiatric drugs are supposed to be safe and be really helping people long-term and could actually be creating more mental health problems.

I've had this thought for a while. A lot of the kids I see are followed by a Neurologist. Why is this if the diagnosis comes from the DSM? I hope this changes and people finally wake up or what is going on. Thank God for the Internet.

Just a Mom

This study must be taken with a grain of salt, it was not on the newer SSRIs that are currently on the market it was on Prozac and even a drug that isn't approved by the FDA. Zoloft and Paxil weren't part of the study.

I agree with Media Scholar, SSRIs can't be stopped cold turkey, the CBC did an excellent program on this in the Fifth Estate a few years ago.

For some of us we must always look at does the benefit outweigh the risk, medications may need to be a part of our treatment but it doesn't mean we shouldn't do our homework, and the homework may require you to dig a little deeper, even if it's a scientific study and often one most go to the source, press releases are just that, press releases, sometimes info is taken out of context.

Prof Irving Kirsch and his team in 2008 conducted "the largest review of SSRI studies to date, including all of those previously unpublished FDA-registered studies."

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2253608/?tool=pubmed

An article on the general state of affairs re: SSRI's talks about the cherry-picking behind the published papers.

http://saveyourself.ca/articles/shorts/2008-03-03-new-ssri-evidence.php

I recall listening to the CBC Radio interview, as Prof Kirsch hinted at his frustration with the "difficulty" they had obtaining the unpublished (less than favorable) data from the FDA.

The latter (link) mentions Wyeth and it's latest "foray" - Pristiq. IMHO the Pristiq ads can only be described as idiotic. I'm apparently not alone (if the bazillions of parodies out there are any indication - google "pristiq" and "spoof" - some of these video's are probably better medicine than the drug itself).

jen

well why don't they do more fair studies on treatments such as chelation and bio-med?? I like how they make it sound like parents are clammoring for these pharma-meds when that is probably not the case-more like it is being shoved at them. I know of a kid at the place I last worked at and the teacher basically wouldn't have him in the class unless he tried an anti-anxiety medication. Actually, I thought it was her that needed the anti-anxiety meds. But, it is a good starting point to say now that this pharma option (SSRI's) are not a good idea.

Sarah

According to Nobel Prize winning geneticist Dr. Mario Capecchi, neuropsychiatric disorders and their behavioral symptoms such as bipolar, schizophrenia and autism all directly correlate to an immune dysfunction specifically defective microglia in the brain.

He said mental illness should be treated as an immune problem and that the psych drugs are not effective. He mentions bone marrow transplants as a possible therapy.

Here is a recent interview with
Dr. Cappecchi. This is well worth watching:

If you take these diseases away from the psychiatrists, what will they do all day? Nothing!

All diseases "treated" by them are just shades of chemical (mostly mercury) poisoning. The whole "profession" is a hoax. If you take away mercury poisoning, there will be a lot of people in the medical profession standing in the unemployment line.

Ohhh, Patrons99
I saw two shows on the health channel about real life kids with bipolar and schizophrena.

They had a six year old schizophrena girl that was dignosed as the youngest ever - she was six. She had an IQ of 146. They showed clips of videos of her growning up and at age four she was sitting there stimming - it looked at autism to me.

And the bipolar kids - the psychologist said they need to change the DMS table for kids and not call it bipolar, but temper disfunction or someting. Their little moods was dark, brooding, scary mad!

My daughter as she was growing up - compared to them was just cranky! Oh, I have seen her scary mad too, but not untill she became a teenager.

Benedetta


Drugs; I hate them all. Including the seizure medicines, but we are stuck between a rock and a hard place.

It is maybe not exactly the psychs that need to let go of autism - but more like the rest of the medical community needs (with a whip to their backs) to step up to their responsibilities.

patrons99

Good point, Media Scholar - the taper off SSRI's should be medically-supervised AND very cautious for the reasons that you state.

ASD should definitely be removed from the psychiatrists.

It may be too early to tell, but several other "psychiatric" and neuropsychiatric conditions may also prove to be vaccine-associated diseases, e.g. bipolar disorder, ADD/ADHD, and schizophrenia. Could these diseases represent one-two punch, chemical biologic intoxications?

SSI and Special Education enrollments are growing rapidly, throughout the country. A graphical presentation of these enrollments on a statewide basis would be informative.

Media Scholar

I think some discussion should follow this article considering the dangers of drug withdrawal.

For example, those that quit SSRIs cold turkey ordinarily don't handle that well. The violence seems to either turn inward (suicide) or outward (school shooting, infanticide).
