BETA GLUCAN SUPPLEMENTS BACKED BY
There a Crisis Coming in Antibiotic-Resistance Bacteria?
What can Beta Glucan do?
By John L. Tate, D.D.S.
"Common bacteria that cause pneumonia, children's ear
infections and many other diseases are evolving into forms
untreatable by all known medicines, threatening a chilling
post-antibiotic era that would be "nothing short of a medical
disaster," stated Dr. Alexander Tomasz of Rockefeller
University in New York City.
"It's potentially an extremely serious problem," said
Dr. Mitchell Cohen of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) of
Atlanta, Georgia. "Any new drugs that might be developed to
cope with the deadly bacteria are at least five to seven years
away, and drug companies are not pursuing them eagerly",
"Spread has occurred quickly with the untreatable form of
enterococcus, too. In one New York hospital, the untreatable
strain wasn't present in 1989. By 1992, it was responsible for 58%
of the infections with that species of enterococcus. If you get
the infection you are in the Almighty's hands," said Dr.
A staph germ that has resisted medicine's drug of last resort has
shown up for the first time in the United States, the government
said Thursday (August 21, 1997). "The timer is going
off," said Dr. William Jarvis, a medical epidemiologist with
the Centers for Disease control and Prevention. "We were
concerned it would emerge here, it has emerged here and we are
concerned we're going to see it popping up in more places."
Staph bacteria are the #1 cause of hospital infections. They are
blamed for about 13% of the Nation's 2 million hospital infections
each year, according to the CDC. Overall, the 2 million infections
kill 60,000 - 80,000 people.
From Harvard Medical School, authors A. O. Tzianabos and R. L.
Cisneros write in the October 25, 1996, Annual New York Academy of
Sciences publication, "The emergence of multiple
antibiotic-resistant microorganisms has led to a search for
alternatives to traditional therapeutic regimens. PGG Glucan is a
soluble beta-glucan immunomodulator that selectively enhances the
microbicidal activities of neutrophils, and microphages without
stimulating proinflammatory cytokine production…these studies
demonstrated that prophylaxis with PGG glucan in combination with
antibiotics provided enhanced protection against lethal challenge
with Esherichia coli or Staphlococcus aureus as compared with the
use of antibiotics alone."
Is Beta-1, 3-D Glucan an Antibiotic Substitute?
One of the best kept secrets in medicine is Beta-1, 3-D glucan.
Beta glucan is a non-specific immune modulator with over 1,600
peer-reviewed articles and 25 years of research. It safely and
effectively activates and modulates the immune system through its
cellular network of macrophages, neutrophils, B-Cells and Killer
cells to control bacteria, fungi viruses and tumor cells. A
typical quote from one of these articles is, "The broad
spectrum of immunopharmocological activities of Glucan includes
not only the modification of certain bacterial, fungal, viral and
parasitic infections, but also inhibition of tumor growth."

What is Beta Gold™ (Beta-1, 3-D glucan)? It is a long chain
polysaccharide derived from the cell wall of common baker's yeast.
In its purest form it has no known toxicity and is completely
safe. It also has potent antioxidant and free radical scavenging
capabilities. Even the FDA has recently announced in the Federal
Register that 750 mgm of beta glucan in the daily diet will
significantly reduce LDL cholesterol.
In my dental practice of 32 years, I now supplement the antibiotic
prescription with three (3) capsules of the 500 mg Beta-1. 3-D
glucan for 5 days (2 days before surgery, the day of, and 2 days
after surgery). For those who are allergic to the penicillin
forms, I have used Beta glucan alone with excellent healing and no
dry sockets. Since Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus mutans
are the two most potent bacteria involved in dental infections and
Dr. DiLuzio of Tulane Medical University has shown the
effectiveness of beta glucan against staph aureus in his research,
the logical step is to inform the patient of this development and
In a very unusual root canal case, a patient who had been taking a
therapeutic dose Beta-1, 3-D glucan for 3 months presented a
failing root canal bicuspid. When I removed the bicuspid tooth,
1/2" of the root had been eaten away by the immune system
(macrophages) along with the root canal and formaldehyde cement
leaving the inert root canal material alone and naked in the bone.
The bone in the socket appeared completely healthy. I sutured the
patient and he healed normally while remaining on Beta
glucan. I have never experienced a case like this in my
dental career. My obvious question is, if the macrophage is
activated against the foreign body response of the formaldehyde
root canal cement and tooth root, then will all the bad root
canals be attacked in this manner?
In summary, there is an impending crisis in antibiotic resistant
bacteria. I am continuing to collect positive data regarding the
use of Beta-1, 3-D glucan for complete healing in dental surgery.
To give my patients maximum protection, I would not want to
practice surgery without Beta Glucan.
