Food Poisoning Toxins: Novel Synthetic Peptide LT-10 Treatment
by Dr. Binie Ver Lipps
Generally it is believed that food poisoning is caused by the consumption of food contaminated with microorganisms. The food poisoning is actually caused by the toxins liberated by these bacteria. Therefore, bacteria per se are not wholly responsible for food poisoning. There are numerous bacteria-liberating toxins involved in food poisoning. Several food poisoning bacteria are known: genus Clostridia species are gram positive, spore bearing bacilli, genus Staphylococcus and the species are gram positive coccii, the toxin liberated by Clostridia is heat labile, while the toxin of Staphylococcus is heat stable.
Recently, it is reported that food poisoning is caused by the consumption of uncooked raw spinach and tomatoes contaminated with Escherichia coli (E. coli), gram negative toxin producing bacilli. Most recently, it is reported that food poisoning is caused by the consumption of peanut butter contaminated with the Salmonella species, gram negative bacilli.
We have discovered a synthetic peptide LT-10 for having a property of neutralizing toxins derived from animal, bacteria, and plant. We have further proved that LT-10 lowers the concentration of IgE, which is responsible for several disorders including food poisoning. Therefore, LT-10 is proposed for the treatment of food poisoning after FDA approval.
