Detection of five bacterial and five viral pathogens in serum and cerebrospinal fluid.
An increased frequency of Alzheimer’s disease patients positive for Treponema spp.
A significantly higher prevalence of cases with two and more simultaneous infections.
The studied pathogens were widespread equally in serum and cerebrospinal fluid.
Paralleled analysis of multiple sample specimens provides complementary information.
Although the link between microbial infections and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) has been demonstrated in multiple studies, the involvement of pathogens in the development of AD remains unclear. Here, we investigated the frequency of the 10 most commonly cited viral (HSV-1, EBV, HHV-6, HHV-7, and CMV) and bacterial (Chlamydia pneumoniae, Helicobacter pylori, Borrelia burgdorferi, Porphyromonas gingivalis, and Treponema spp.) pathogens in serum, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and brain tissues of AD patients. We have used an in-house multiplex PCR kit for simultaneous detection of five bacterial and five viral pathogens in serum and CSF samples from 50 AD patients and 53 healthy controls (CTRL). We observed a significantly higher frequency rate of AD patients who tested positive for Treponema spp. compared to controls (AD: 62.2 %; CTRL: 30.3 %; p-value = 0.007). Furthermore, we confirmed a significantly higher occurrence of cases with two or more simultaneous infections in AD patients compared to controls (AD: 24 %; CTRL 7.5 %; p-value = 0.029). The studied pathogens were detected with comparable frequency in serum and CSF. In contrast, Borrelia burgdorferi, human herpesvirus 7, and human cytomegalovirus were not detected in any of the studied samples. This study provides further evidence of the association between microbial infections and AD and shows that paralleled analysis of multiple sample specimens provides complementary information and is advisable for future studies.
Lyme Disease, Mycoplasma, and Bioweapons Development Timeline
By Edward Morgan
The following timeline will put forward mounting evidence of a Biological Warfare activity involving many different forms of chronic disease, especially Lyme disease and tick-borne diseases. This is a lengthy timeline with dozens upon dozens of documents, published medical journals, news articles, FOIA requested information papers like declassified files and email correspondence between public health officials, congressional hearings, science data, and more, compiled over many years that I have put together in one place. The evidence I put forward in this timeline, I believe, will show beyond a reasonable doubt that much of the chronic illnesses we are experiencing today are the result of poor safety practices and gross negligence in developing weaponized diseases for military & biodefense purposes, and an ongoing cover-up has ensued to hide [it].
1931 – Dr. Cornelius Rhoads, acting under the cover of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Investigations, writes a letter to a colleague bragging about inducing cancer in Puerto Rican citizens during experiments, killing them. Among some of his words in this letter state “The Porto Ricans (sic) are the dirtiest, laziest, most degenerate and thievish race of men ever to inhabit this sphere… I have done my best to further the process of extermination by killing off eight and transplanting cancer into several more… All physicians take delight in the abuse and torture of the unfortunate subjects.”
As for Dr. Rhoads’ confession, he denied the reality of this horrendous act on the great people of Puerto Rico, saying he only wrote it when he was angry. He would later establish Biological Warfare facilities for the U.S. Army in Maryland, Utah, and Panama, and he was put on the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. where he would go on to conduct radiation experiments on innocent, unwitting citizens. This is the start of a very long and consistent practice of experimentation on unwitting citizens and illegal testing programs that would continue unhindered right up to the present day.
1932 – The federal government begins a long-term research study known as the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment where African-Americans are left untreated for syphilis, even after they had a cure. Some were even intentionally infected with Syphilis through vaccines so that their research could be conducted over 40 years time. The initial study was only supposed to last for six months, but illegally continued for another forty years, Although there were a few survivors, the study was complete after most of the test subjects died. (Tuskegee Timeline from CDC Website)
This will establish that compartmentalized groups of the government have no problem in using its own citizens as guinea pigs and giving them harmful diseases just to see how it affects them, even when it can cause death.
This will also establish a type of behavior would become more prevalent as time went on, especially in our bioweapons development programs. It will also show you how many times a supposedly benign program or research project is used to cause harm and deceive the public.
1942 – Canada enters into a secret agreement with Britain and the United States to participate in a program to develop biological weapons. The principal diseases used as starting points included anthrax and brucellosis.*
1943-44 – The Americans, collaborating with the British had developed the first biological bomb, code named ‘N’, containing anthrax spores. In May of 1944, an initial 5,000 anthrax bombs rolled off the production line at [Fort] Detrick. and within two months production of the bombs was taken over by an undisclosed factory with a higher capacity for production.**
1945 – At the end of World War II the Russians captured twelve Japanese biological laboratories and notified the U.S. that the Japanese had been engaging in biological weapons testing using human beings [This was known as Unit 731]. At least 3,000 American, Chinese, Korean, Australian, and Russian prisoners of war died from the experiments. The Americans also captured Japanese chemical-biological warfare scientists, many of whom had participated in murderous experimentation against American prisoners of war. Some of the experiments were carried out on the Chinese in Manchuria, and used bombs full of fleas infected by typhus and the plague. (Declassified Document 1, Declassified Document 2) (News National Service Article)
“The experiments the Japanese conducted were as horrific as any attributed to the Nazis, but the Americans saw the potential of utilizing their research and offered them immunity from prosecution in exchange for their participation in American programs.
Not only did the American military protect Japanese scientists who had participated in biological warfare experiments that had resulted in the death of American soldiers, in a move that later foreshadowed later government coverups, the Army denied that there had ever been such experiments. Despite the reports of many American prisoners of war in Japanese internment camps, spokesmen for the Army denied that documentation existed to prove these programs had never existed.” **
Several unusual biological agents were studied by Unit 731 before testing on prisoners of war, of bacterial and viral origins, Borrelia sp. is said to be among that list.
1945 – At the end of the war the Agreement was continued into peacetime due to a perceived Communist threat. U.S. hires principal German and Japanese biowarfare researchers, including Dr. Ishii Shiro who had used allied prisoners to test anthrax and had conducted tests of a ‘mystery’ disease agent in the heartland of New Guinea.*
1946 – Dr. George Merck, head of the biological research in the U.S. reported in a secret memo that his researchers had learned how to extract the disease toxin from bacteria in a crystalline form suitable for aerosol diffusion.*
1948 – CONTAMINATION OF CAMP DETRICK LAB WORKERS – A report from the New England Journal of Medicine, 1947, Vol. 236, p.741 called “Acute Brucellosis Among Laboratory Workers” shows us how actively dangerous this agent is. The laboratory workers were from Camp Detrick, Frederick, Maryland where they were developing biological weapons. Even though these laboratory workers had been vaccinated, wore rubberized suits and masks, and worked through holes in the compartment, many of them came down with this awful disease because it is so absolutely and terrifyingly infectious. The article was written by Lt. Calderone Howell, Marine Corps, Captain Edward Miller, Marine Corps, Lt. Emily Kelly, United States Naval Reserve and Captain Henry Bookman. They were all military personnel engaged in making the disease agent brucellosis into a more effective biological weapon.*
1949 – Post-WWII when the remaining Nazis were surrendered to American, British, and Russian forces, the American government took in hundreds of Nazi war criminals to work for American interests in OPERATION PAPERCLIP, bringing Erich Traub, former Nazi scientist in the SS under Heinrich Himmler, over to American shores to continue similar research for the U.S. military as a specialist in zoonotic disease who studied in America at the Rockefeller Institute before World War II, and then in Germany, he was a top SS officer conducting biowarfare research, when he came to America he was working for the Army’s joint lab at Plum Island conducting bioweapons research in the guise of Animal Disease Research under the Department of Agriculture. He was offered a chance to stay in America before World War II began, but chose to return citing his loyalty to the Nazi Party. (FOIA Files on Erich Traub)
Dr. Traub was not a low-level Nazi player by any means, but in fact, he was a high-ranking SS officerduring Nazi Germany. To illustrate his place in the hierarchy- Adolf Hitler was the party leader. Under Hitler, Heinrich Himmler headed the SS. Among several under Himmler in, there was Reich Health Leader Leonardo Conti, and under him, Kurt Blome was the head of the Nazi’s Biowarfare program. Under Blome, was Erich Traub- 4th in the chain-of-command to Hitler.
In Annie Jacobson’s Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program that Brought Nazi Scientists to America, Dr. Traub is described as a rather hostile, unfriendly individual who enjoyed being cruel to animals:
“…Dr. Little, described Traub as a “domineering German and a surly type of individual with a violent temper.” Another colleague, Dr. John Nelson found that despite long training in the care of animals, [Traub] went out of his way to be cruel to animals.”
Traub was also part of an FBI investigation in 1942 where there were large 1000 gallon gas tanks being installed underground on a farm residence next to Frank DuPont. A man said to be a Dr. Eugene Traub from New York. But there is a possibility this may have actually been Erich Traub, since he did work with animals and the USDA, studied at the Rockefeller institute, would have probably known Frank DuPont, and possibly had a summer home in America even while working for the Nazis, as they welcomed him before and after the war.
His wife Blanka Traub was granted citizenship in the early 1950’s
In John Loftus’ America’s Nazi Secret, this former DOJ Special Investigator found files on Erich Traub that show he was engaged in using ticks as a medium to spread disease:
“Even more disturbing are the records of the Nazi germ warfare scientists who came to America. They experimented with poison ticks dropped from planes to spread rare diseases. I received some information suggesting that the U.S. tested some of these poison ticks on the Plum Island artillery range off the coast of Connecticut during the early 1950’s. I explored the old spies’ hypothesis that the poison ticks were the source of the Lyme Disease spirochetes, and that migrating waterfowl were the vectors that carried the ticks from Plum Island all up and down the Eastern Seaboard. Most of the germ warfare records have been shredded, but there is a top-secret U.S. document confirming that “clandestine attacks on crops and animals” took place at this time. The Lyme Disease outbreak in America was monitored secretly under the cover of a New England health study.
Sooner or later the whole truth will come out, but probably not in my lifetime. Years from now historians will have to put the secret files into context of events, a job akin to pasting dead leaves back on a tree in the right order…”
In Michael Carroll’s Lab 257: The Disturbing Story of the Government’s Secret Plum Island Germ Laboratory he details some of the tests going on around the United States and may give a clue as to what Erich Traub was doing on Plum Island:
“At least six outdoor stockyard tests occurred in 1964-65. Stimulants were sprayed into stockyards in Fort Worth, Kansas City, St. Paul, Sioux Falls, and Omaha in tests determining how much foot-and-mouth disease virus would be required to destroy the food supply.
(See link for article)
The chronology shows Plum Island research conducted research into reactivating latent viruses, a characteristic of OspA – a fungal antigen which is a lipoprotein found on Bb and is a related component of Mycoplasma.
Following the lead of this group of physicians, a few State health departments have now begun to investigate, in a very threatening way, physicians who have more liberal views on Lyme disease diagnosis and treatment than they do. And indeed, I have to confess that today I feel that I am taking a personal risk, a large one, because I am stating these views publicly, for fear that I may suffer some repercussions despite the fact that many hundreds of physicians and many thousands of patients all over the world agree with what I am saying here today.
1993 – Dr. Garth Nicolson Ph.D., and his wife Dr. Nancy Nicolson Ph.D., told their story in PROJECT DAY LILY conducting research at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX on this unknown illness affecting so many soldiers, many of whom were top military personnel, and found that most of them had been infected by a biological agent known as Mycoplasma fermentans incognitus as well as Brucella, Coxiella, and others similar to Borrelia burgdorferi – Lyme Disease. Many of them had multiple overlapping infections.
For their research Dr. Nicolson & his wife were both met with harsh criticism and extreme resistance from the cancer center administration and a handful of colleagues. They even endured several attempts on their lives by poisonings and exposure to deadly pathogens. Dr. Nicolson and his wife would pay a big price in academic endeavors, akin to an actor or artist being blackballed by Hollywood or the music industry for not ‘playing ball’, all for wanting to help the great men and women of our military.
Dr. Nicolson was eventually fired for his work on Mycoplasma by Dr. Charles LeMaistre, the head of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. In an article by the Houston Press, more was revealed. According to Dr. Nicolson, the reason why LeMaistre wanted the Nicolsons to stop their work was because he was directly involved in the problem. Dr. Charles Lemaistre has strong connections to the Bush family, James Baker III, the Carlyle Group, and the biotech company involved in making vaccinesfor the military- Tanox BioSystems Inc., founded by Nancy Chang, a microbiologist from Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. LeMaistre had a fairly big involvement, possibly through investments. Dr. Lemaistre is also well connected to people like Henry Kissinger and Nancy Chang also has connections to the Bush family, James Baker III and the Carlyle Group, the Chinese, as well asHenry Kissinger. Dr. Shyh Ching-Lo, the man who patented Pathogenic Mycoplasma, was also a member of Tanox BioSystems Inc. In the article by the Houston Press, Dr. Nicolson hints at these interests being directly involved in selling the Iraqis Biological weapons in the 80’s as well as creating the vaccines for troops. Of course, the news article goes well out of their way to make it sound like a conspiracy theory, but through sites like Relationship Science, you can clearly see just how connected all these folks are.
1994 – A town nearby Houston in Hunstville, TX experiences a rapid onset of cases of ALS, MS, and Chronic Illness with a number of deaths resulting. Dr. Nicholson starts research on testing and treating these individuals and find that most of them are infected with Mycoplasma fermentans incognituswhich had been patented by the Department of Defense and scientist Dr. Shyh Ching-Lo just a few years prior. A FOIA requested document reveals a whopping 42 deaths in one town in just a short period of time. It lists only 1 death from Mycoplasma fermentans incognitus. However, with the other deaths being listed as ALS, cancer, heart-related, or cause unknown, this can easily be attributed toMycoplasma, because these are all by-products of Mycoplasma infections.
At the time, it was suspected by Dr. Nicolson and a number of colleagues that the sudden illness was the result of illegal testing by Baylor College of Medicine and the National Cancer Institute in the Texas prison systems in the late 60’s and early 70’s research conducted through defense contracts in black programs that had now made its way into the community. In Project Day Lily, Dr. Nicolson alludes to having been confirmed correct in his assumption when years before the slain Air Force Col. had hinted to him that he was right on target with his work testing for and treating patients forMycoplasma fermentans incognitus. The research was conducted by the medical sector for the defense department and able to test on American citizens without legal punishment by using a loophole called Title 50 code 1520. This fell under War and National Defense: allowing tests on human subjects with chemical and biological agents. Although it had been repealed in 1997, the tests are still able to go on legally, due to a loophole wehereby the tests can be continued in times of War or National Emergency. We have been under some form of wartime or national emergency since the 70’s
1994 – Senator John D. Rockefeller issues a report revealing that for at least 50 years theDepartment of Defense has used hundreds of thousands of military personnel in human experiments and for intentional exposure to dangerous substances. Materials included mustard and nerve gas, ionizing radiation, psychochemicals, hallucinogens, and drugs used during the Gulf War.
1994 – Dearborne Conference – Yale Doctor & CDC Official Allen Steere puts forward his fraudulent shift narrowing Lyme Disease by changing the definition of the disease from a growing, relapsing fever disease that cannot be treated easily and hard to test for- to a small insignificant, rare disease that is easily cured with a round of antibiotics. He was referring to the 15% or so who made antibodies to fight the infection These cases were suffering from the same illness but able to respond due to their fortunate genetic predisposition- while the other majority face a devastating illness with immunosuppression- and not adequately fighting the infection.
Also changed are the testing standards making the cutoff levels more difficult to obtain positive results. Before where a positive only needed 3 bands for 41, Allen Steere & Co. raised the bar to 5 for 41 claiming it would more accurately pick up their ‘new definition’ of Lyme disease, or the 15% who make antibodies and the other 85% would be thrown into the ‘Social Phenomenon of Lyme’ fraudthat Alan Barbour and Durland Fish (former employees at Plum Island, University of Texas, NIH Rocky Mountains Bioweapons Lab) proposed in a fraudulent medical paper put out the previous year. The testing companies doing all the testing would be coming from the same criminals in their own companies- Corixa, Imugen, L2 Diagnostics of Yale- all of which Allen Steere and the many others involved in this scam were owners, partners, or employees of.
This sudden Lyme disease definition change was met with criticism by numerous attendees from labs all over the country attending the conference as it had previously been understood that this is a relapsing fever organism which can be highly complicated to treat and caused immunosuppressive outcomes in many of those cases leading to severe physical and neurological problems. A dangerous disease that can cause death and cancer-like outcomes. Contributors and attendees of the conference say Steere’s proposal ran about anywhere from an 8% to 22% accuracy rate. Even partner-in-crime Gary Wormser reported that this method missed up to 85% of cases. But they pushed it through anyway and it would become the standard for all medical centers and insurance company guidelines. And doctors from that point on would buy into the ‘Social Phenomenon of Lyme’ fraud that the 85%, who are much more sick, are only psychiatric cases and it is “all in their head” – Much like the Pentegon did just one year before with the Mycoplasma exposure on the Gulf War veterens, as well as the coverup on the Hunstville Mystery Illness resulting from illegal tests by the M.D. Cancer Center (through University of Texas and Baylor College of Medicine). Must be a coincidence…

May is national Lyme Disease Awareness month, giving activists and those suffering from Lyme disease a chance to spread information on how to prevent the disease.
According to the Centers for Disease Control’s website, Lyme disease is often found in the upper midwest and northeastern states in the United States, and is transferred through tick bites.
The CDC says 476,000 people are treated for Lyme disease each year,based on insurance records.
Liam Conlon is Lyme positive, and lives with the illness after a tick infected him.
(See link for story)
Fairly balanced reporting here for once.
While the spokeman for the Columbia/Boone County Health Department is correct in stating that not all ticks are infected, this is the wrong approach. When will we learn?
Take each and every tick bite as seriously as a heart attack and ASSUME you are infected. The risk simply isn’t worth it.
I’m thankful the article points out Lyme is only the tip of the spear and there are many other pathogens they can transmit besides the ones listed in the article. Bartonella is one of the worst and isn’t even mentioned.
There are also many other signs and symptoms than what are listed in the article. Time to get educated. Time to stop regurgitating age-old information that is incomplete or inaccurate. One example is waiting for symptoms before seeing a doctor. At this point it would be foolish to “wait and see,” because this approach has doomed thousands of people to a life-time of suffering. Each tick bite should be treated.

PODCAST: LYME DISEASE AND LONG-COVID IN A 16-YEAR-OLD GIRL
Hello and welcome to another Inside Lyme Podcast with your host Dr. Daniel Cameron. In this podcast, Dr. Cameron discusses the case of a 16-year-old adolescent with Lyme disease, who developed Long-COVID.
The case involved a 16-year-old girl with a history of a tick bite, erythema migrans rash, Bell’s palsy and a swollen knee. Lyme disease tests were positive with 5 of 10 IgG Western blot bands. She had been ill for 5 years. She had also been diagnosed with chronic fatigue and Post -Treatment Lyme disease Syndrome (PTLDS).
The young woman had been treated for 3 years with oral and IV antibiotics, as well as supplements. She reported being chronically ill from Lyme disease but was not being treated with antibiotics at the time of the Survey.
Her COVID-19 was confirmed by nasal swab. She was not hospitalized but had fever, fatigue, and headache and some limitations on activities due to her illness. She was ill more for than a month.
The woman felt that her history of having a tick-borne illness made her acute COVID-19 illness worse. She developed long-COVID.
Her GSQ-30 score was 68 out of 120, indicating a high symptom burden. Her worst symptoms were feeling fatigued or having low energy, feeling worse after normal physical activity, needing more sleep than usual, not feeling rested on wakening, discomfort with normal light or sound, changes in visual clarity or trouble focusing, hot or cold sensations in extremities, irregular or rapid heartbeats, feeling irritable, sad, feeling panicky, anxious, or worried, trouble finding or retrieving words, trouble with memory, and slower speed of thinking.

Fever, fatigue, and headache could be anything, including Lyme/MSIDS.
Who’s to say COVID didn’t reactivate her Lyme/MSIDS?It did for me and my husband and many others.
“Long COVID” has become a similar catch-all definition as “consumption” was in the past and means very little as tests do not prove anything. ‘The powers that be’ would rather blame anything than a reactivatedinfection (including EBV) that would improve with long-term antibiotics or other treatments.
Cameron admits her symptoms look exactly like Lyme symptoms. Perhaps they are!
The other fly in the ointment is the fact COVID injection reactions are being blamed on “long COVID.” Nobody is separating this issue out and it’s a perfect ploy to divert attention away from injection reactions.
Infant deaths due to vaccines are never listed on death certificates because there is no CDC code for cause of death due to vaccines. They are ALL LISTED AS SIDS.
I’m thankful Cameron is concerned that this patient might have reactivated tick-borne illness. Not everything is COVID!
