Dr. Bastian now continues his work at Tulane and at LSU in Baton Rouge, and his research has reached an exciting stage. He has previously shown that a wall-less bacterium, spiroplasma, in consistently associated with TSE's.
Excerpt from Dr. Bastian: "I am planning an experiment to show that spiroplasma infection triggers prion formation in CJD which is the last part of the puzzle. We have to get the World going in the right direction. In order to do this I need to purchase a sonicater system costing $ 7,500.00 to be installed at Tulane Medical School in New Orleans.
Government funding is impossible so I am inquiring regarding the possibility of obtaining donations to this end."
