After the events of September 11, and the scares of mid-October, people
all over the world are getting worried about bioterrorism -- terrorist
attacks using infectious agents such as anthrax, plague, dengue, and
This is an appropriate time to remind everyone in the world that IPT
has been found, again and again, to be a better way to use existing drugs
for fighting a wide variety of infections.
IPT has been shown to work for viral, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic
IPT has been shown to work even when tissue is necrotic (dead and
dying), and extremely inflamed, as in cases of ulcers and appendicitis.
IPT has been shown to be safe and gentle for most patients, even those
with extremely poor medical status.
By delivering drugs more effectively and efficiently, IPT can often
give good results using a fraction of the normal drug dose, and in a
shorter period of time. In emergency situations, this conserving of
drug supplies may be important or even crucial.
IPT's first application was to cure advanced syphilis, for which there
was no known cure, in the 1920s to 1940s, before antibiotics. It may
similarly offer benefits for treatment of infections that are currently
considered incurable, such as advanced respiratory anthrax infection.
IPT is a simple procedure that physicians and auxiliary medical
personnel can learn in a short training course. It uses existing
drugs and supplies. It can be simplified to use nothing more than an
insulin syringe and a cup of sugar water, along with the appropriate
IPT research for infectious diseases in animals and humans could be
done very simply and quickly. Indeed, it should be
done very soon, as a matter of national and world security.
