New virus found in brain infection patients in Vietnam

June 24, 2013VIETNAMResearchers have discovered a new virus in patients in Vietnam suffering from severe brain infections, a team of scientists reported today in mBio, the journal of the American Society for Microbiology.  The virus was detected in 28 of 644 patients who had severe brain infections and none of 122 patients who had non-infectious brain disorders, according to researchers at the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit, Wellcome Trust South East Asia Major Overseas Program and the Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam. It’s tentatively called CyCV-VN and is part of a group of viruses known as Circoviridae known to circulate in animals such as birds and pigs, they said. “We don’t yet know whether this virus is responsible for causing the serious brain infections we see in these patients, but finding an infectious agent like this in a normally sterile environment like the fluid around the brain is extremely important,” Rogier van Doorn, head of emerging infections at the Wellcome Trust Vietnam Research Program and Oxford University Clinical Research Unit Hospital for Tropical Diseases in Vietnam, said in a statement. Brain infections can be fatal and may leave people who survive them with severe disabilities, the researchers said. Bacteria, parasites, fungi and viruses can cause the infections, though doctors can’t pinpoint the cause of more than half of them. The study was funded by the Wellcome Trust, the European Union and the Li Ka-Shing Foundation-University of Oxford Global Health Program.  –Bloomberg

    One way to help survive a world pandemic or the spread of disease in a SHTF scenario is to make sure that you are eating a lot of fermented foods: sauerkraut, miso, natto, kemchi, yogurt, fermented vegetables, komchaka tea, kefir, and the such. These foods power up your good bacteria in your gut. These good bacteria are known as probiotics. 80 percent of your immune system depends upon good probiotics hard at work in your gut. Every good prepper should know how to ferment foods. This is a simple skill that most college educated Ph.D.’s do not have.

      Well said John. Taking crushed, raw garlic (left 10 minutes after crushing, for increase in anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, anti-inflammatory properties, among others) in the mornings at least 2 or 3 times a week helps IMMENSELY. I cannot stress enough the importance of taking natural and raw foods to keep the body and its systems in optimal shape! Apple cider vinegar and honey are other natural wonders. Take them, along with garlic and probiotic yogurt, and nothing will ail or afflict you!

  3. This infection of the brain of some people in Vietnam, may be related to the “environmental impact”…i.e., by the “social network” and the newly “developped society”, which are named “the civilization”, and all what is related to it… It is the outcome of civilization (social and kind of environment) , and the civilization and environment are, them too, the outcome of people’s brain and mind ….It is a question of Vice-Versa ….Mary Cassin

    Somebody put a link to this article on Steve Quayle’s website with the tagline, ‘somebody tweaked mad cow disease-‘ which is nonsense because mad cow disease is caused by a prion, not a virus or bacteria or fungus.

    Negative, irradiate all your good or at least heat it to 200 degrees before eating. Distill all water. Heating it to the boiling point will kill germs.

      Perhaps that is why they are not obese as in America. But if this virus is a deliberate, covert op from chemtrails, or some other secret gov. project – then nothing can really help you, fermented foods or not!
