VIPDx took this down from their website, but this is the internet. The internet remembers everything.
VIP Dx Laboratory is highly regarded in the field of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and neuro immune disease testing. VIP Dx also tests for intestinal gut dysbiosis by means of the Immunobilan test, the same test used in BioRay’s CytoFlora study. The CytoFlora study showed remarkable results with autistic children. Specifically:
Improvement in speech and social interaction
Reduction in abdominal pain and gastro-intestinal symptoms
Until now, antibiotics have been the only recognized treatment for elevated pathogenic bacteria and gastrointestinal inflammation. “We test many Chronic Fatigue patients in our laboratory with elevated IgA and IgM to bacterial antigens and most are put on antibiotics for six to eight months followed by a course of probiotics,” noted Craig Setter of VIP Dx Laboratory. “The CytoFlora results represent the first time I have seen such a significant decrease in IgA and IgM in only a few weeks.”
BioRay will be presenting the results and methodology of the CytoFlora study at Autism One.
Eleven children from BioRay’s Cytoflora study were also tested for XMRV at VIP Dx Labs. Six tested positive for the gammaretrovirus XMRV. Two of these children are siblings whose mother also tested positive for XMRV. Dr. Judy Mikovits, Director of Research at Whittemore Peterson Institute, will be speaking about XMRV at Autism One. We believe this unique and informative presentation will be of interest to doctors and parents in the world of Autism.
VIP Dx licensed the technology for testing XMRV from Whittemore Peterson Institute. Come and speak with Marguerite Ross, Director of Marketing & Client Relations at VIP Dx, and Dr. Vincent Lombardi, PhD, Researcher & Consultant to VIP Dx. The VIP Dx booth is located next to the BioRay booth outside the main auditorium. This is a special opportunity to hear more about testing and on-going research occurring in the world of neuro-immune diseases.
“Lost your essence after excessive lovemaking?” BioRay said it has a supplement for you.
Autism? Allergies? Liver problems? BioRay said it can help.
In fact, the supplement company established by Timothy and Stephanie Ray said it has products for just about anything that ails you or your family — from speech delays to weight issues.
It might sound like the world’s best apothecary, but neither Timothy nor Stephanie Ray is a licensed medical doctor or pharmacist. There’s no strong scientific evidence that their products work or that they are safe. In BioRay’s online forum, customers have linked its products to fever, rashes, boils, heart palpitations and more.
LOL. Dont worry– theyve taken their forums down, so you cant read those complaints from users yourself. LOOOOL!
What about that Cytoflora stuff?
Take, for example, BioRay’s statement on its website that CytoFlora can “push pathogens from the gastrointestinal tract,” and “correct microbial imbalances.” CytoFlora, which contains dead bacteria associated with probiotics, sells for $87 for 4 ounces.
“There’s no evidence that dead or parts of dead bacteria have anything to do with proliferation of good bacteria,” said Dr. Allan Walker, a probiotic expert and director of the Mucosal Immunology Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital. There’s no proof they can push pathogens out or correct microbial imbalances either, he said.
After questioning by the Tribune, BioRay removed these claims from its website.
Great group of folks they got there at BioRay. Totally not a snake-oil money machine. **WINK!!!**
And yeah, I totally have faith in the critical thinking skills and laboratory abilities of the WPI and their scientists after getting on board with people like this. Totally gonna give them the benefit of the doubt on XMRV and CFS. **WINK!!!**
