Harmless bacteria turned deadly just 30 years ago – now, it kills 500.000 every year http://b4in.org/p1qe

It’s a truly terrifying story, and a truly terrifying disease. The flesh-eating culprit in question is called GAS, or Group A β-hemolytic streptococcus, a highly infective bacteria.

Apart from causing the flesh-eating disease necrotizing fasciitis, GAS is also responsible for a range of less harmful infections. But like most bacteria, it was harmless at one point in its evolution – now, researchers have pinned down when this change happened in order to help prevent future epidemics. Their result? It was just 30 years ago.

After reconstructing their evolutionary history, scientists believe that  these bacteria appeared to have affected humans since the 1980s, after evolving from a less harmful streptococus strain.

Lead researcher James Musser of the Methodist Hospital Research Institute was delighted with the results, which analyzed the genetic background of a total of 3,600 streptococcus strains in order to figure out when the bacteria went rogue.

“This is the first time we have been able to pull back the curtain to reveal the mysterious processes that gives rise to a virulent pathogen.”

For those who knew Laura (WebWawa or Lawawawa or just Wawa), she passed today.

She had been struggling with adenocarcinoma for a while. Initial chemo, and then Tarceva maintenance gave her several more years. It re-metastasized and got into her brain. She'd had surgery and stereoscopic radiation treatment, which seemed to help at first. Then, they found two rapidly growing tumors near her vision center in her brain, and she elected to go through whole-brain radiation treatments. Ultimately, this, like any other massive radiation, was a big burden on her blood cell counts. That lead to infections and weakness, that ultimately led to her passing.

Laura was very sweet and had a great smile. For a while, she had bring pink hair, which was fun. She was always happy, and creative. She was blessed to have a very supporting family and a loving husband. Their loss will be great.

It pretty much sucks all the way around, but she was wonderful and made lots of people feel happy. We were all lucky to know her.

You will be missed. :(

Dear Friends,

This is Laura's sister, Leslie. It is difficult for me to write this and I am sure it will be difficult for you to read, but I need to let you know that Laura passed away around 3:30 this afternoon.

The doctors in Dallas determined that Laura had necrotizing fasciitis and her body was not able to defend itself against such a voracious disease. My mom and I both made it to Dallas in time to be there with Trey and her wonderful oncologist, Dr. Nadler, when she passed away. She left this world with the same grace and peace she exuded each day that she lived in it. The loss of Laura leaves a void in our lives that I can only hope we will be able to fill somehow with all of our wonderful memories of her.

We will not be having a traditional service for Laura because Laura was not a traditional girl. Our thought right now is to do something simple at the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation walk on Saturday, May 3 in Dallas. She was really looking forward to walking this event with her team of Wawa's Warriors. We will now be walking in her memory. I will post info as I know it.

If you would like to register to join her team to walk or make a contribution to the walk in Laura's memory, below is the link to her personal page. I hope it works. I don't know how to work Laura's samsung phone very well.

Thank you all for your love and support. Each and every one of us is a Wawa Warrior in some way.

Love,
Leslie on behalf of my mom, my dad, and Trey

13-year-old Trey Lauren is at Seattle Children's Hospital battling necrotizing fasciitis, a form of flesh-eating bacterial infection that not only threatened to take his leg, but his life.

The term “flesh-eating” disease (necrotizing fasciitis) is a scary and often misunderstood term. Click below to read my latest article to understand this disease and to set the facts straight.

Robert Biri was diagnosed with Necrotizing fasciitis - a flesh eating infection with reports of mortality rates over 70%.

After spending over 5 weeks in ICU during which time Robert underwent multiple surgeries, he was able to overcome this horrific infection, and was released from hospital a month later.

Only days after his release, Robert suffered a heart attack and was readmitted to hospital where he was diagnosed with coronary heart disease. We were informed that two main arteries to his heart were 100% blocked and another two minor arteries 60% blocked. Doctors speculated for over a month about how to best tackle Robert’s condition. They determined a quadruple bypass heart surgery would be required which he successfully went through. After an astonishing recovery, he was released later that year.

Robert's dream is to once again have a chance to hike across Spain and complete the over 1000km long El Camino route. He is determined to publish a tour guide, filled with wonderful photographs he plans to capture throughout his journey.

Ever since leaving the hospital, he has been training hard on a daily basis to regain his strength and prepare for the summer. We are fundraising to help him live his dream.

Donations will go towards travel expenses, camera equipment, and of course publishing costs. All contributions, big or small are greatly appreciated! Each and every person that donates will also have their name printed on the back pages of the book.

You can view some of his photographs at: http://www.viewbug.com/member/robogow#/robogow/photos
