Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome- Water Damaged Buildings


Research Committee Report on Diagnosis and Treatment of  Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome Caused by Exposure to the Interior Environment of Water-Damaged Buildings                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        (1)  CIRS-WDB is a multisystem, multisymptom illness acquired following exposure to  the interior environment of WDB and it exists as a recognizable syndrome. When defined  by i) exposure; ii) symptom evaluation; and iii) epidemiologic similarities between  studies of similar hosts and similar exposures, CIRS-WDB is both identifiable and  treatable. A proven and consistent pattern of symptoms is demonstrated among published  research findings involving both animal and human studies.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            (2)  CIRS-WDB is identified as immunologic in origin, with differential inflammatory  responses seen according to (i) genetic susceptibility and (ii) unique aspects of host  innate immune responses. Direct effects of microbial toxins, particularly mycotoxins, in  pathogenesis are recognized to act synergistically with those toxins made by  actinomycetes, gram negative bacteria, and possibly mycobacteria causing the effects  shown in CIRS-WDB. Cellular immunity affecting T-cells and Th-17 plays a role in  CIRS-WDB, as do immunologic changes activated by both toxins and inflammagens that  are found in the interior environment of WDB. It is scientifically demonstrated that innate  immune host responses are similar in their appearance following human exposure to  many of the toxins and inflammagens that are simultaneously found to be present inside  WDB.  Documenting those immune abnormalities will not (and cannot) implicate any  one, isolated, specific source. Given the current scientific information and readily  available physiologic abnormalities that patients with CIRS-WDB experience, we must  expand our assessment beyond the known effects of simple, individual toxins when  establishing public health policy and private sector physician treatment protocols.    http://www.policyholdersofamerica.org/doc/CIRS_PEER_REVIEWED_PAPER.pdf     What is a Water Damaged Building ?   http://www.survivingmold.com/diagnosis/what-is-a-water-damaged-building

My pleasure…. I am so sorry I had not responded, I did not know someone had commented on the link. Does it notify you of a comment so I may know in the future ?? Did you become ill from the home ??

Once made ill by mold it is for life. I also do know there is feeling better but there are close to no Dr’s for this. only 5 that I know of in the US. Maybe one day I can get help. But I don’t know where this will lead us. I have 3 lung diseases as a result of the exposure and we both have many other physical problems and diseases………………. HUGS and many Blessings May …

After I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a remark is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any means you’ll be able to remove me from that service? Thanks! Buying provigil preparer
