Summary: Chronic spirochetal infection can cause slowly progressive dementia, cortical atrophy and amyloid deposition in the atrophic form of general paresis. There is a significant association between Alzheimer disease (AD) and various types of spirochete (including the periodontal pathogen Treponemas and Borrelia burgdorferi), and other pathogens such as Chlamydophyla pneumoniae and herpes simplex virus type-1 (HSV-1). (Miklossy 2011 Exp Rev Mol Med) Miklossy’s lab exposed mammalian glia & neuronal cells in vitro to Borrelia burgdorferi spirochetes and bacterial lipopolysaccharides (LPS). Morphological changes analogous to amyloid deposits were observed at 2-8 wks exposure. Increased levels of ß-amyloid precursor protein and hyperphosphorylated tau were detected by WB.The frequency of spirochetes is significantly higher in the brains of Alzheimer patients compared to controls.The statistical analysis is based on the cumulative data of the literature. (P=1.5×10-17,OR=20, 95%CI=8-60! Seven out of ten brains from the Harvard McLean Brain bank were positive for Borrelia DNA. Alan Mac Donald MD. “Borrelia Infection is the root cause of at least 70% of Alzheimer’s disease, based on the detection of positive In situ DNA hybridization results in the cytoplasic GVB sites of hippocampal neurons ( with no positive signals detected in the nucleus) for flagellin B DNA sequences of Borrelia burgdorferi.” Antibiotics in Alzheimer’s disease: A randomized controlled trial of doxycycline and rifampin for patients with Alzheimer’s disease 2004.
