 //Candida albicans// is a fungus (a form of yeast) that plays a role in opportunistic oral and genital infections in humans. //C. albicans// biofilms readily form on the surface of implantable medical devices. Systemic fungal infections (fungemias) have emerged as important causes of morbidity and mortality in patients traditionally labelled as immunocompromised,​ e.g., AIDS, cancer chemotherapy,​ organ or bone marrow transplantation. ​ (According to the Marshall Pathogenesis,​ patients suffering from chronic inflammatory diseases are likewise immunocompromised.) ​ //Candida albicans// is a fungus (a form of yeast) that plays a role in opportunistic oral and genital infections in humans. //C. albicans// biofilms readily form on the surface of implantable medical devices.

 +Extrapolating to humans, these findings suggest that coconut oil could become the first dietary intervention to reduce C. albicans GI colonization. ​ [[https://​msphere.asm.org/​content/​1/​1/​e00020-15|Dietary coconut oil also altered the metabolic program of colonizing C. albicans cells.]]

 +I used to think that herpes erupted when immunity was down but I have now witnessed too many shingles outbreaks in Marshall Protocol patients as they recovered. Called IRIS or Immune Recovery Inflammatory Syndrome, this is also seen in AIDS patients as their immunity recovers. ​

 Using the VDR agonist, olmesartan, the MP activates the innate immune response. The innate immune response is effective against a range of microbes including "​co-infections."​ One important component of the innate immune response is the antimicrobial peptides. Using the VDR agonist, olmesartan, the MP activates the innate immune response.
