Seven people in Alberta have developed a form of immune system suppression after consuming cocaine laced with a chemical compound, public health officials said Friday.

The individuals developed agranulocytosis, a condition that makes the immune system incapable of fighting off infections.

It makes common infections become serious, even fatal, quite quickly.

"We are advising anyone who develops a fever or other signs of infection and has used cocaine to seek medical attention quickly," Dr. Gerry Predy, Alberta's Acting Chief Medical Officer of Health, said in a news release.

"Any skin abscess or lung infection that develops rapidly should also be treated immediately."

Officials have linked the cases to cocaine laced with levamisole, a chemical compound developed to treat intestinal worms in humans and animals.

The cases were reported in Edmonton, Red Deer, and in undisclosed locations in southern and northern Alberta.

Doctors in Alberta have been advised they should test and treat patients for this condition if they complain of a fever or other signs of infection after using cocaine.

Definition of Agranulocytosis

Agranulocytosis: A marked decrease in the number of granulocytes. Granulocytes are a type of white blood cell filled with microscopic granules that are little sacs containing enzymes that digest microorganisms.

Granulocytes are part of the innate, somewhat non specific infection-fighting immune system. They do not respond exclusively to specific antigens, as do B-cells and T-cells.

Agranulocytosis results in a syndrome of frequent chronic bacterial infections of the skin, lungs, throat, etc. Although "agranulocytosis" literally means no granulocytes, there may, in fact, be some granulocytes but too few of them, i.e. granulocytopenia. Agranulocytosis can be genetic and inherited or it can be acquired as, for example, an aspect of leukemia.

Neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils are all types of granulocytes. They are named by the staining features of their granules in the laboratory:

Neutrophils have "neutral" subtle granules;
Eosinophils have prominent granules that stain readily with the acid dye eosin; and
Basophils have prominent granules that stain readily basic (non acidic) dyes.
This classification dates back to a time when certain structures could be identified in cells by histochemistry, but the functions of these intracellular structures were still not yet fathomed. However, the classification of granulocytes into neutrophils, eosinophils and basophils is still widely used (and quite useful).

This is really quite funny. Who else except the blacks would take an illegal drug, buy it from some sleazey dealer , take the drug without any way to see if it is tested, then blame the "government" and whitey when they get sick from a contaminant?

it really is easy - Don't take drugs! and here is the white man's secret of the "cure" for AIDS - don't have unprotected sex, and don't share needles!

This cross-sectional study examined factors associated with the receipt of HIV medical care among people who know their HIV status and are not newly diagnosed with HIV. Interviews were conducted with 1133 HIV-positive individuals between October 2003 and July 2005 who enrolled in 1 of 10 outreach programs across the country. The sample was predominantly non-white (86%), male (59%), and unstably housed (61%), with a past history of cocaine use (68%). Twelve percent had received no HIV medical care in the 6 months prior to the interview. Those with no care were similar to those who received some HIV care in sociodemographic characteristics, but in multivariate analysis were less likely to have a case manager (p < 0.001) or use mental health services (p < .001), had lower mental health status scores (p < 0.05), were more likely to be active drug users (p < 0.01), had greater unmet support service needs (p < 0.05) and reported that health beliefs were a barrier to care (p < 0.001). Interventions to engage people in HIV medical care need to address barriers to care through linkages with mental health, substance abuse treatment and support services, and address the health beliefs that deter people from seeking care.

Definition of Agranulocytosis
Agranulocytosis is a blood disorder in which the person has a low level of granulocytes. Granulocytes are a type of white blood cell. When they are examined under a microscope, they appear to contain granules, or small dark specks. Neutrophils, basophils, and eosinophils are all types of granulocytes. These cells are important in fighting infections.

What is going on in the body?
The bone marrow contains special cells known as stem cells. These are like infant cells that mature into many types of cells. Stem cells may develop into red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Certain conditions can damage stem cells, or change their environment. The stem cells stop making blood cells. A low level of granulocytes in the body is called agranulocytosis. Since granulocytes are important in fighting infections, a person who has agranulocytosis is more prone to different types of infections.

What are the signs and symptoms of the condition?
Someone who has agranulocytosis may develop life-threatening or chronic infections. Symptoms vary, depending on the type of infection, but may include the following:

chills
fever
sore throat
ulcers in the mouth, stomach, or bowels
weakness

What are the causes and risks of the condition?
Agranulocytosis can be caused by a number of factors, including:
autoimmune disorders, or conditions in which the body attacks its own tissues
chemotherapy
diseases that damage the bone marrow
hereditary disorders
radiation therapy
use of certain medications, such as clozapine (i.e., Clozaril, FazaClo ODT) or carbamazepine (i.e., Carbatrol, Equetro, Tegretol)

What can be done to prevent the condition?
In most cases, agranulocytosis is not preventable.

How is the condition diagnosed?
Diagnosis of agranulocytosis begins with a medical history and physical exam. The professional may order a complete blood count, or CBC, with a differential. This blood test measures the level of neutrophils, basophils, and eosinophils.
Genetic testing may be done if heredity is suspected to be the cause. If blood tests are abnormal, the professional may order a bone marrow biopsy. This test involves inserting a special needle into the hip bone. A sample is taken from the bone marrow.

What are the long-term effects of the condition?

Agranulocytosis increases a person's risk for infections. If white blood cell levels are extremely low, serious bacterial infections can occur. These can include infections caused by bacteria that usually don't cause any problems in the body. Infection in the bloodstream, known as sepsis, may lead to life-threatening septic shock.
Someone who has agranulocytosis may develop severe lung infections. Strong antibiotics may or may not cure the infections. The individual is at risk for chronic infections. These can cause organ damage and scarring.

What are the risks to others?
Agranulocytosis is not contagious and poses no risk to others.

What are the treatments for the condition?
Initial treatment of agranulocytosis often includes the following:
antibiotics to treat or prevent infections
isolation to keep the person from contracting an infection
stopping the medication that is suspected as the cause of the agranulocytosis, which may resolve the problem
Other treatments may be ordered, depending on the cause of the agranulocytosis. These treatments include:
bone marrow transplant
granulocyte-colony-stimulating factors, such as GM-CSFs or G-CSFs, which stimulate the production of granulocytes
matched stem cell transfusions, which replace damaged stem cells
Bone marrow transplant is an effective treatment for some people with agranulocytosis. More than half of the good candidates for bone marrow transplant are cured.
People are good candidates for bone marrow transplant if they meet these criteria:
They are under the age of 40 years.
They have had good health prior to the transplant.
They have a matched donor, such as a family member.

What are the side effects of the treatments?
Medications used to treat agranulocytosis may increase the person's risk for infection. Some may cause allergic reactions. A bone marrow transplant may cause bleeding, infection, or a reaction to anesthesia.

What happens after treatment for the condition?
Until blood cell counts return to normal, someone who has agranulocytosis is at risk for infection. It's important to avoid risk factors, such as the following:
activities that cause a rapid heartbeat, chest pain, or shortness of breath
excessive exercise
exposure to contagious diseases

How is the condition monitored?
The person with agranulocytosis will have regular visits with the healthcare professional. Any new or worsening symptoms should be reported to the healthcare professional.

According to the 2006 Census by Statistics Canada, 783,795 Canadians identified themselves as black, constituting 2.5% of the entire Canadian population.
Hmmm...???

Although often thought of as being predominantly of English origin[citation needed], Alberta has considerable ethnic diversity. In line with the rest of Canada, many immigrants originated from Scotland, Ireland and Wales, but large numbers also came from other parts of Europe, notably Germans, French, Ukrainians and Scandinavians. According to Statistics Canada, Alberta is home to the second highest proportion (two percent) of Francophones in western Canada (after Manitoba). Many of Alberta's French-speaking residents live in the central and northwestern regions of the province. As reported in the 2001 census, the Chinese represented nearly four percent of Alberta's population, and East Indians represented more than two percent. Both Edmonton and Calgary have historic Chinatowns, and Calgary has Canada's third largest Chinese community. The Chinese presence began with workers employed in the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway in the 1880s. Aboriginal Albertans make up approximately three percent of the population.

In the 2001 Canadian census, 387,445 Albertans (13.17%) identified themselves as "Canadian" while 426,035 (14.49%) identified some other ethnicity as well as "Canadian", making a total of 813,485 (27.66%) for "Canadian". The other most commonly reported ethnicities were: 753,185 English (25.61%); and 576,350 German (19.60%); 556,575 Scottish (18.92%); 461,065 Irish (15.68%); 332,675 French (11.31%); 285,725 Ukrainian (9.71%); 149,225 Dutch (5.07%); 144,040 North American Indian (4.90%); 137,625 Polish (4.68%); 120,050 Norwegian (4.08%); and 108,050 Chinese (3.67%).(Each person could choose more than one ethnicity.)[17]

Amongst those of British origins, the Scots have had a particularly strong influence on place-names, with the names of many cities and towns including Calgary, Airdrie, Canmore, and Banff) having Scottish origins.

Where are the blacks???

Interesting info BOSSY!Thanks and I think it may be a form of AIDS, not caused by the HIV virus but cocaine tainted with that chemical compound. That makes me wonder why if this was the reason why the CIA introduced cocaine into the black community back in the 70's to set ourselves up for HIV infections.

Causes and pathogenesis of AIDS in the USA and the industrialized world
The appearance of the AIDS epidemic in the United States of America in 1981 can easily be explained by the following events.

1. Crack cocaine became very popular in the 1970s and the inhalation of crack cocaine has caused severe respiratory illnesses that needed long- term treatment with high doses of powerful anti-inflammatory drugs. The United States Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of glucocorticoids by inhalation in 1976 to treat the inflammation of the respiratory system and asthma that are caused by inhaling crack cocaine. The chronic use of medications containing glucocorticoids at high doses by inhalation caused severe impairment of the immune defenses of the lungs and the upper respiratory tract. This led to the infection of the lungs and other organs with opportunistic microorganisms and the development of cancer ( 1).

2. Since the 1970s, the prescriptions containing glucocorticoids have increased tremendously to treat more than forty medical conditions induced by narcotics. The side effects of these medications include thrombocytopenia, peripheral neuropathy, and chronic opportunistic infections. Glucocorticoids have also been given to hemophiliacs to prevent the development of antibodies against foreign transfused clotting factors. They are also given to pregnant women who are expected to have premature infants as the result of the use of illicit drugs, and to their infants to enhance the maturation of the lungs. The use of other immuno-suppressant agents, cytotoxic drugs, antibiotics, antiviral, and antifungal has also increased tremendously since the1970s. Most of these agents cause bone marrow depression and other tissue damages, which have also contributed to the pathogenesis of AIDS ( 1, 7).

3. Some homosexual men who inhaled cocaine and/or other narcotics suffered from respiratory inflammation, infections and other systemic damage, which are then treated with glucocorticoids. In addition, the use of alkyl nitrites, also known as "poppers", became popular in 1970's among homosexuals.

The inhalation of "poppers" at sufficient amounts causes methemoglobinemia and severe headaches, which is then treated with aspirin. The heavy use of aspirin and alcohol cause thrombocytopenia. As well, AZT and proteases inhibitors also cause thrombocytopnea, peripheral neuropathy, and bone marrow depression. Thrombocytopenia, peripheral neuropathy are classified by the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as an AIDS indicator, which is also treated with high doses of glucocorticoids that cause AIDS

This actually makes a lot of sense:

Causes and pathogenesis of AIDS in Africa:
In Africa, AIDS is caused by severe starvation. An individual suffering from severe starvation usually loses up to 90% of his or her thymus size along with the capacity of the functions of their immune system. The release of endogenous cortisol plays a major role in the pathogenesis of AIDS in people suffering from malnutrition. In starvation, cortisol, a hormone released from the adrenal glands, is required for the conversion of fat and protein to glucose in the liver. Glucose is used as energy by the heart, brain, and other organs and without the endogenous cortisol, human beings are unable to survive very long without food. Any person who suffers from severe starvation has AIDS regardless if the person is HIV-positive or HIV-negative. Fortunately, AIDS in people who are suffering from severe starvation is reversible with proper nutrition and supportive medical care as shown by the following studies.

1. In a study involving 110 malnourished children, the thymic area was found to be 20% of the size in healthy children. The size of the thymus in these children was increased from 20% of normal to 107% of normal following 9 weeks of proper feeding ( 12).

2. The reversal of the reduction in CD4+T cell count in HIV+ pregnant women following proper feeding was also reported by Fawzi et al.( 13). Briefly, the influence of diet on T cells counts in peripheral blood of 1,075 HIV-infected pregnant women who had poor nutritional status was studied. The CD4+ T cell counts of the women who received multivitamins increased from 424/µL to 596/µL during six months of proper feeding.

The prevalence of KS, lymphoma, lymphadenitis, and tuberculosis in Africa is similar or even higher than those observed in homosexual men, drug users, and AIDS patients in the United States and Europe ( 1). However, AIDS in Africa occurs almost equally in males and females because starvation affects both sexes equally. For example, Sibanda and Stanczuk reviewed all histopathology reports of lymph node biopsy submitted to the Histopathology unit in Harare, Zimbabwe in the period of January 1988 to June 1990. The most common diseases in the 2,194 lymph node specimens were: non-specific hyperplasia (33%), tuberculous lymphadenitis (27%); metastases (12%), Kaposi's sarcoma (9%); and lymphomas (7%). Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) involving the lymph nodes was reported in 176 (9%). In children, the prevalence of KS was higher in children under 5 years than in 6-15 year bracket. Approximately two thirds (65%) of all patients with KS were aged between 20 and 40 years ( 14).

So I was right!There was a link between the cocaine consumption of the 1970's and the offset of the progression to AIDS.
