PANS. It's a new thing. Another mysterious autoimmune ailment that is severely affecting behavior in children.
BURLINGAME -- Nearly 200 parents of children with a complicated, mysterious brain illness called PANS gathered over the weekend to seek advice and
support from each other as they navigate the disease, which triggers psychotic and compulsive behaviors.
Is it something they ate?
PANS is believed to be caused by an infection or other trigger that causes the immune system to mistakenly attack the brain and swell it,
resulting in extreme obsessive-compulsive disorder, cognitive regression, sleeplessness and other disabling behaviors.
"some other trigger" ? hmmm. Where have I heard that before. What could we be doing to screw up the human immune system? Sudden onset, encephaly.
hmmm. Encephalitis appears on many vaccine side effect lists, but with vaccines, side effects don't seem to matter. You can't even talk about them
without getting attacked. Can't talk about aluminum adjuvants or contaminant proteins, prions etc.
Better check with the medical establishment. According to an advocate's website, we are up to 1/200 children. You might say "climbing the charts!"
a diagnosis of PANS is so new and controversial that most pediatricians across the country haven't even heard of the afflictions, leaving many
children locked in psych wards or wreaking havoc at home. A small group of critics suggest the disease doesn't exist and argue that any improvements
children see might be caused by the placebo effect
Is medical science trying to get to the bottom of it or will they crawl into a ball like they do on autism? It can be treated with antibiotics but
some cases don't respond to treatments. Anibiotics are old news, so pharma probably won't deploy.
But Dr. Susan Swedo from the National Institute of Mental Health, who has been studying the condition since the 1980s, and Dr. Jenny Frankovich, a
rheumatologist at Lucile Packard at Stanford who treats Tessa, say the disease is very real. The PANS clinic at Stanford, which Frankovich recently
opened with child psychiatrist Kiki Chang, needs funding for research, Frankovich said, and the clinic is seeking donors.
