Last Thursday, 13 May, I was asked to hold a seminar at Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, explaining why Olmesartan might have an effect in Schizophrenia.

The introduction to this research group was initiated by member Tussilago, from Sweden.

It turned out that the research group was particularly interested in how inflammation might be behind the symptoms of cognitive dysfunction, and we will be writing at least one peer-reviewed paper explaining what we have been learning these past few years :)

Please watch this thread for announcements as we start to figure out what data we need from you all :) This is a very exciting opportunity to start engaging with the psychiatric community in a manner which will ultimately lead to real, tangible, help for those who suffer from neurological disease.

The video of the seminar is at URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uha9lyVoEf0

For some reason, the best quality picture seems to be obtained with the '480p' YouTube setting at the moment...

All of this fits my disease model very well. Aside from inherent microbiota I may have been born with[I am certain the Irish must transmit some rather nasty bugs to their descendants], It was soon after my diagnoses of mononucleosis[EBV] at age 9 that cognitive dysfunction began to affect my life. Strep throat became a common reoccurence which was treated with round after round of penicillin which I am sure didn't help my over all pathogen load. Psoriasis set in.

Interestingly it was 4 months after being diagnosed with Cat Scratch Fever [Bartonella] that I was also diagnosed with psychosis and a form of schizophrenia. After being hospitalized for repeated bouts of psychosis I turned to self medication[marijuana] and tried every anti-depressant/mood stabilizer/anti-psychotic under the sun. I remember my doctor describing psychosis as a flash point preceded by a kind of 'kindling' in the nervous system. Even though he was not aware of the underlying mechanisms we are learning about today....I believe he was describing para inflammation leading up to a more severe immune response in the nervous system.

20 year later I could not eat without experiencing severe fatigue and mood swings. Later the whole immune system went beserk after months of eating sushi three to four times a day and doing a ton of accupunture.... I was diagnosed with Guillian Barre Syndrome and peripheral neuropathy. Life was not exactly a bowl of cherries.

In spite of all of this,I was suprised at the speed at which Olmersartan reduced most of the really unbearable aspects of the mental disease as well as the food sensitivities[almost completely gone after completion of phase 1]

I remember telling my doctor at the time that I found the cure for bipolar disorder and handed him some papers by Trevor.....he asked me if I was taking my lithium.....I sad 'No, I am now off all psychiatric medicine except Olmesartan,'[prescribed by a NP]and he had the nurses escort me out of the building!

That has been a year and a half ago and inspite of the antibiotic induced herxing and general IP.....it just keeps getting better and better.

What a great presentation! Thanks for sharing, Trevor. The video and audio quality are quite clear and easy to understand.
Also, at about 19:50 there is a slide showing the VDR with a large cell diagram and the actions of the immune system both in and out of the cell. Is this a new slide?--or did I forget seeing it in another presentation? That helped me visualize some of the actions better and expanded upon the VDR actions that are shown on the other primary vitamin D/VDR slide that is shown again during the Q/A section.

It's exciting to see each new presentation given with a different focus as to how this research can be applied to so many areas of disease. And it will be wonderful to see this expand particularly the understanding in patient recovery from so many mental/neurological inflammatory symptoms. :cool:

Those reading this thread will probably also be interested in the experiences and studies discussed on this thread on schizophrenia, bipolar and other mental disorders:

Hi, I cant believe I missed you when you came to King's College hospital London in May, I live about 2mins away from there, anyway I would like to know if you could put me in touch with someone from the hospital familiar with the M.P.
I was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis in 2003 but I'm sure it is neurosarc due to blurred vision and seizures the symptoms go back to the mid 70's of my childhood. You see my doctor wont allow me more than 40mg of Benicar or 50mg of Minocycline per day, I know the treatment works as the Beincar has reduced the swelling in my right ankle and reduced pain and strange frothy urine from my kidneys[excess blood calcium]and many other benefits.

Thank you, any advise would be appreciated. Keep up the good work its only a matter of time before the treatment is given the recognition it deserves.

If you don't get a reply to your specific question regarding KCL, you might try requesting a doctor's list over at http://curemyTh1.org and hopefully you can find a doctor who will do better for you.  You can also PM other's from your area -- click on members and you can get locations and click on a location and it will give members in that location.
