encephalopathia (encephalopathy) - any brain disease
"A newly described disease called anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis,
(can) cause...the body’s immune system (to) go...haywire & attacks a
protein in the brain.
The protein, the NMDA receptor, helps neurons communicate; it is the same receptor that’s blocked by PCP or ketamine — both drugs that can make a normal person act like someone with schizophrenia.
Clark, Dr Rachel Brain Drain - A young woman almost loses
her mind, & no one can figure out why. Editorial by Dr Lisa
“'They told me she was having a
psychotic break, that she probably had
schizophrenia,' her mother reported...She had a
seizure. After that, she never woke up. She was finally transferred
to Massachusetts General in Boston...3 spinal taps. Each showed the
presence of white blood cells, suggesting that she had
encephalitis - an inflammation of the brain...A
CT scan of her body...showed...a tiny
cyst (known as a teratoma, derived from the Greek word for
'monster,' because of their creepy contents) on her left ovary...An
article, published just months earlier, that described 12 women with
what the paper’s author called
ovarian teratoma encephalitis.
The women had headaches and psychiatric symptoms and became comatose.
Each was ultimately found to have a teratoma...Most of these women
recovered fully once the cyst was removed...
The author of the paper theorized that these particular tumors, which have the potential to grow any type of cell in the body - develop primitive brain cells. Somehow the immune system mistakenly identifies these cells as “foreign” and makes antibodies to destroy them. These antibodies go on to attack the same kind of cells in the (patient's) brain. "

Powassan encephalitis is a serious illness caused by the Powassan virus. This virus was 1st recognized in the small town of Powassan, Ontario (Canada) in 1958."|

Autobiography - Biography
Cahalan, Susannah - "Dr Balice-Gordon believes
that a %, albeit a small one, of those diagnosed with autism &
schizophrenia might in fact have anti-DMDA-receptor autoimmune
encephalitis," with which Susanna was diagnosed, after being
diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder. At the time it cost her insurer
$1 million to treat and eventually correctly diagnose her via a biopsy
showing inflammation & antibodies targeting brain glutamate
Now antibody-mediated autoimmune diseases have become a bona-fide group of syndromes."

Bedbug Blues - http://www.npr.org/2012/11/14/165115921/a-young-reporter-chronicles-her-brain-on-fire "As Najjar put it to her parents, 'her brain was on fire.' This discovery led to her eventual diagnosis & treatment for anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, a rare autoimmune disease that can attack the brain. Cahalan says that doctors think the illness may account for (be the medical or spiritual cause of) cases of 'demonic possession' throughout history."

|https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12388826 - 11/2002 - "Attempts to detect infectivity in the blood of humans and animals affected with transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs or prion diseases) have often been inconclusive because of the limitations of cross-species bioassays and the small volumes of blood that can be injected by the intracerebral route."|
|Department of Psychiatry, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, RCSI Education & Research Centre, Beaumont Hospital, Dublin 9, Ireland - http://psychoticdisorders.wordpress.com/tag/susannah-cahalan/ - "We present 4 cases of confirmed anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis; 3 presented initially with serious psychiatric symptoms & the other developed significant psychiatric symptoms during initial phase of illness. Brain biopsy findings of 1 patient are also described. Psychiatrists should consider anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis in patients presenting with psychosis & additional features of dyskinesias, seizures & catatonia, particularly where there is no previous history of psychiatric disorder."|
Sheri A. Marino 3/21/2019 - "Currently,
the MMR & Varicella vaccines are available as 2 separate shots without
being combined as the MMRV. The DTaP, IPV, Hep B, & HIB vaccines are also
available as separate shots without being combined as a hexavalent shot.
Research confirms these are the safer options." Archives @
