Anthrax Bacteria Killed By Simple Sugar Compound Called Cyclodextrin. Is CDC Looking Into This?

We all remember the Anthrax-laced letters that killed five people and severely rattled the country post-9/11. Just when you thought there might not be a way to stop this lethal infectious disease along comes beta cyclodextrin, a non toxic sugar compound.

A researcher by the name of Vladimir Karginov at a company called Innovative Biologics is working with beta cyclodextrin and Anthrax.  Karginov has designed and synthesized a number of beta-cyclodextrin derivatives and evaluated their ability to inhibit the lethal toxin action of Anthrax.  Several compounds displayed anti-toxin activity at low micromolar concentrations in cell-based assays and preliminary toxicity and efficacy studies in rodents produced very promising results.  You can read about the research project here.

Anthrax is a highly lethal and infectious disease caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis, a bacteria that forms spores, or dormant cells, which can come to life under the right temperature, nutrients and other conditions to allow growth. Anthrax occurs in humans after exposure to an infected animal or infected animal tissue or when anthrax spores are used as a bioterrorist weapon.  

There are some effective vaccines against anthrax, and some forms of the disease respond well to antibiotic treatment shortly after exposure. But there is need for new, safe and effective treatments approved by the FDA to supplement traditional intravenous and oral antibiotic therapy such ciprofloxacin (cipro), doxycycline or vancomycin. I have now reported on beta cyclodextrins ability to kill the HIV AIDS virus and now the deadly Anthrax bacterium.  This same non toxic sugar compound is also being used to treat my 5 year old identical twins who have a fatal cholesterol metabolism disorder called Niemann Pick Type C, or the "childhood Alzheimer’s."

What other lethal bacterias and viruses does this non toxic cyclodextrin compound kill?   What does the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention and the United States Department of Health and Human Services know about cyclodextrin and are they studying it?

    I don’t know about Niemann Pick type C, but in Alzheimer, Parkinson’s and ALS, I was able to stop them in a matter of a week and a reversal by using the virus hypothesis, in old people of course, where there is a characteristic low grade fever. Hence using the lysine simply handled well in stopping their advance in their disease in a matter of a week by keeping blood lysine stable enough. If Niemann Pick type C, maybe is genetic defect, but is worth the try to use the lysine – threonine protocol since in condition of genetic defect, it may have been the virus that’s changing the genes, by stopping them, the genes become normal. It takes only less then a month to prove this hypothesis.

    An empty shell of beta cyclodextrins has an affinity for oil and hydrophobic compounds and is used as an anticholeterol or fat reducing food. But when hydrophobic of nature which is to say, oils whose nature are toxic to anthrax, such as thyme, oregano oil, can be used as a delivery device to kill the target bacteria using aromatherapeutic oils made more powerful with the addition of beta cyclodextrin. A suitable carrier that goes to any membrane of cells with this cyclodextrin, such as DMSO can be lethal for target tumor cells and bacterium, not just virus.

    A beta cyclodextrin can be purchased and mixed with suitable agent that has certain anti cancer or antiviral properties make it more powerful delivery device for target organism. For example, the most toxic components against the cancer in the laetrile vitamin B17 isn’t the cyanide content, but it is the benzaldehyde, a flavoring agent found in apricot pits and bitter almond oil, which deprives the cancer cells of cysteine. By mixing a benzaldehyde with the beta cyclodextrin, this becomes beta cyclodextrin benzaldehyde. This is then used as an anti tumor agent. But of worthy consideration is that antibiotics can be made more powerful, as well as vitamin A, E, and other hydrophobic compounds mixed with the carrier molecule, as a cyclodextrin. The theory as to why it works is cyclodextrin is a sugar molecule, and is food for most target bacteria, virus and other organism, but unfortunately they can’t be utilized by them, and is toxic, as this works like a trojan horse, if you get the drift!
