The porcine (pig) whipwormA helminth with a tapering whiplike body that lives in the colon. In helminthic therapy, the microscopic eggs of either the human Trichuris trichiura (TTO) or pig Trichuris suis (TSO) are taken in a drink., Trichuris suisThe porcine (pig) whipworm used in helminthic therapy and taken as microscopic eggs (TSO) in a drink every two weeks., is supplied in small bottles containing 15ml of an isotonic, phosphate buffered saline solution at pH 2.4. Suspended in this liquid are minute, barely visible eggs that are referred to as ova, hence the abbreviation, "TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis". Since this species is not adapted to living in humans, it dies approximately 14 days after ingestion, following which it is completely digested, leaving no eggs or worms to be passed in faeces. During its short time in the body, the immature worm hatches from its egg and begins to grow, shedding molecules that modulate the host’s immune system and provide a legitimate target for it to attack. This prevents the immune system from responding inappropriately to innocent targets such as foods and pollens and the host’s own tissues, as happens in autoimmune diseases such as lupus, ulcerative colitisUlcerative colitis (Colitis ulcerosa, UC) is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which specifically affects the large intestine, or colon, causing characteristic ulcers, or open sores. The main symptom of active disease is constant diarrhea mixed with blood, of gradual onset. and Crohn’s disease.

Dosing with TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis

Taking TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis

TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis are taken orally by drinking the contents of a 30 ml bottle that has 15 ml of saline solution containing the eggs.

Taking TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis on an empty stomach will allow the eggs to move through the digestive tract a little more quickly and hatch a little earlier than if they had been delayed while a meal is being digested, but this small saving of time is the only benefit of taking them between meals. [1]

Available dose sizes

  • 500 ova
  • 1,000 ova
  • 2,500 ova

Dividing doses

If smaller doses are not immediately available, these can be created by dividing the contents of a bottle containing a larger dose. For example, to create doses of 500 TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis from a bottle of 1000 TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis, first shake the bottle to evenly distribute the organisms it contains, then carefully pour out half of its contents to produce a dose of 500. If dividing a bottle of 2500 ova into five doses of 500, it's best not to attempt to pour out a fifth of the liquid by sight. Instead, after shaking the bottle, use a medicine syringe to draw up 3ml of the liquid for each dose of 500. Any ova remaining in the original bottle should be stored in the fridge until required.

Recommended dosing regimens

The basic dosing regimen consists of a total of 10 doses, one dose being taken every 14 days. In cases of more severe or chronic disease, administration of up to 20 doses may be necessary.

Some people have found that they begin to experience a return of disease symptoms slightly before the next dose is due. In these cases, shortening the period between doses by one or two days will prevent the reappearance of symptoms.

Those who start with TSO500 or TSO1000 and do not see a significant improvement in their condition by the 5th dose, should switch to the next higher dose.

Quotein.gif
I have seen several autistic patients showing nothing on lower doses, but as soon as they reached TSO2500 the response was great. [2]

Children under 3 years old

In this group, a physician should be involved in decisions about dosing.

Children aged 3 and over

TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis should be introduced using very small doses that are taken every 2 weeks and increased gradually over a 10 week period. These doses should be measured using a 5ml pipette purchased from any drugstore. The whole protocol will require a total of 5 bottles of TSO500 and 3 bottles of TSO1000.

Dose 1. Take a bottle of TSO500, shake this well, and then take out 3ml of the solution using the pipette, drop the liquid onto a spoon or mix it with any drink, and administer. Then store the bottle in a fridge, NOT a freezer.
Dose 2. After 2 weeks, repeat as described for dose 1, but take out 6ml.
Dose 3. After another 2 weeks, take out 9ml.
Dose 4. After another 2 weeks, take out 12 ml.
Dose 5. After another 2 weeks, give one full dose of TSO500.
Dose 6. After another 2 weeks, give one full dose of TSO500.
Dose 7. After another 2 weeks, give one full dose of TSO500.
Dose 8. After another 2 weeks, give one full dose of TSO1000.
Dose 9. After another 2 weeks, give one full dose of TSO1000.
Dose 10. After another 2 weeks, give one full dose of TSO1000.

After a further 2 weeks, report progress to Tanawisa, who will advise on how to proceed. It is often unnecessary to continue treatment following the adaptation regimen outlined above, but, if further treatment is required, most children will be able to jump to doses of TSO2500 at this point.

Young people (8 years and over) with moderate symptoms

One dose of TSO500 every 14 days.

Adults with moderate symptoms

One dose of TSO1000 every 14 days.

The elderly and those with long-term illness

One dose of TSO2500 every 14 days.

Special applications

Small doses of TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis (see Dividing doses, above) can be used for a number of additional purposes, including:

  • to help modulate the severity of the skin response to inoculationThe introduction of an infectious agent into an organism. [http://helminthictherapywiki.org/wiki/index.php/Helminth_inoculation Helminth inoculation] with NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus. See, Adding a small dose of TSO.
  • as a temporary replacement for a different helminthAn intestinal worm which grows large enough to be seen with the naked eye when mature but which is microscopic when administered in helminthic therapy. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helminths Wikipedia:Helminths], if access to that species is reduced. For example, when one self treater who had been using NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus to treat IBSIrritable bowel syndrome is a widespread condition involving recurrent abdominal pain and diarrhoea or constipation. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irritable_Bowel_Syndrome Wikipedia:Irritable Bowel Syndrome] was unable to have hookwormA helminth that lives in the small intestine. Necator americanus (NA) is the only hookworm species used in helminthic therapy. Its microscopic larvae are applied periodically to the skin. doses shipped to his home in Brazil during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, he tried taking a very small dose of TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis and was very pleasantly surprised by the results.
Quotein.gif
4 days after swallowing a small dose of TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis (250 ova), I am feeling much more relieved of my diarrhea, which had been punishing me for 2 or 3 months, since I accidentally ingested coconut oil, which probably killed a good part of my NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus colony. [3]

Possible side effects and how to avoid them

As with other helminthsAn intestinal worm which grows large enough to be seen with the naked eye when mature but which is microscopic when administered in helminthic therapy. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helminths Wikipedia:Helminths], TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis may cause transient side effects when first introduced but, with this species, they are usually limited to the period immediately following the first dose and typically consist of temporary, mild gastrointestinal symptoms, especially diarrhoea, and mild spasms.

Quotein.gif
TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis caused me a few days of looser stools and a rumbling gut, then it settled down around the 4 to 5 day mark. [4]
Quotein.gif
I started with 2500 TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis fortnightly from the outset (for UCUlcerative colitis (Colitis ulcerosa, UC) is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which specifically affects the large intestine, or colon, causing characteristic ulcers, or open sores. The main symptom of active disease is constant diarrhea mixed with blood, of gradual onset.). The only side effects I had were one day of mild diarrhoea 3 weeks in. [5]

In a few cases, diarrhoea can be more prolonged.

Quotein.gif
I did have diarrhea for a solid month at dose 2. [6]

Rarely, there can be skin manifestations, or even some redness in the throat, after first taking TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis. [7] Some people can be sensitive to the low pH of the phosphate-buffered saline solution in which TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis are suspended (pH 2.4 - similar to the pH of Coca Cola), but any skin response should resolve quickly, and can be prevented by mixing the TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis with Gatorade, which dilutes the fluid and raises the pH value.

Occasionally, brief side effects may continue to appear after each of the first few doses but they will gradually reduce in severity and should eventually cease.

Quotein.gif
I just took my 4th dose (of 2500 TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis to treat ulcerative colitisUlcerative colitis (Colitis ulcerosa, UC) is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which specifically affects the large intestine, or colon, causing characteristic ulcers, or open sores. The main symptom of active disease is constant diarrhea mixed with blood, of gradual onset.)… I’ve had some gas issues for the first couple days after the doses. [8] [9]
Quotein.gif
In the first few months I had reactions (looser stools) with each TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis dose. Once my gut healed sufficiently, within 3-4 months, I no longer had any negative reactions, yet I still continue to feel the Bounce for several days with each dose. [10]

Rarely, a TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis user may experience mild side effects following all doses in the long term.

Quotein.gif
I do get diarrhea the day after dosing. It clears in less than 24 hours. [11]
Quotein.gif
I feel fine after 3 days of gut upset. [12]
Quotein.gif
I have Crohn's. I don't get nausea but I will get diarrhea after every HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta or TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis dose. It usually is the 2nd day after swallowing them. Rarely lasts into the 3rd but If I am traveling, I don't risk it. [13]

TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis can also flare existing diseases.

Quotein.gif
I became more agitated with TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis and had more obsessive thoughts. [14]
Quotein.gif
So, tomorrow I take dose 2 of TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis... My chronic sinus/eustachian issues seem to be flaring. [15]

And TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis may even trigger a temporary recapitulation of old injuries and illnesses.

Quotein.gif
I'm in the middle of week 3; I did 1000 for the second dose since 500 went fairly well. I have noticed old things flaring up...a wrist injury for dropping a barbell 8 years ago; my interstitial cystitis - which has been quiet for 4 years - flared back up with a vengeance at the end of week 1 and is now settling down; a knee issue I had on and off that was probably part of my overall autoimmune landscape was bothersome for a few days. My colitis is a little flare-y, too, a little blood, gas, and mucus. That, too, is settling a little as of today. Nothing really alarming, although the cystitis was unpleasant. [16]
Quotein.gif
The one sort of weird thing is an ache in my teeth in areas where I’ve had crowns or other dental work before. It’s not bad, it’s just something I’ve noticed each time I take TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis. [17]

The risk of initial side effects is increased if additional helminth species are introduced for the first time while still only in the early stages with TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis.

I totally underestimated how bad worm flu would feel. It’s hard not to give up. I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck! [18] [19]

For more detail about possible side effects, see the following paper.

Adaptation regimen

Anyone who is concerned about the possibility of side effects can start with a lower dose and build up gradually to doses of 2500.

  • Two doses of TSO500, followed by
  • two doses of TSO1000, and then
  • six doses of TSO2500.
Quotein.gif
I was nervous about TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis so I started with 500 then quickly moved up to 1000 and then 2500. I’ve had very few side effects. [20]

If someone who starts with doses of 2500 finds that these cause diarrhoea or other side effects, they should switch to this adaptation regimen.

(See Dividing doses above for how to split larger doses into several smaller ones.)

If a patient is being cared for by a helminthic therapyThe reintroduction to the digestive tract of a controlled number of specially domesticated, mutualistic helminths (intestinal worms) in the form of microscopic eggs or larvae to reconstitute a depleted biome to treat or prevent chronic inflammation, autoimmune disease and other immune-related disorders, including allergy.-aware doctor, the latter may prescribe a short course of prednisone with a suitable taper. This treatment will usually allow the patient to take full doses of 2,500 TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis without experiencing any side effects.

Response to TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis

The conditions that appear to respond best to TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis are Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitisUlcerative colitis (Colitis ulcerosa, UC) is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which specifically affects the large intestine, or colon, causing characteristic ulcers, or open sores. The main symptom of active disease is constant diarrhea mixed with blood, of gradual onset., autism and lupus. [21] TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis can also be effective in food allergy, contact allergy, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and lichen planus (see more here), and it is worth trying for any autoimmune disease, or any condition with an inflammatory component.

Due to the considerable variation in how individuals respond to TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis, it is not possible to predict an accurate timeline that applies to all patients. However, it appears that around 80 percent of patients eventually respond positively to the treatment, although response and remission may take longer in the case of more severe or chronic conditions, or when individuals have been using a different helminthAn intestinal worm which grows large enough to be seen with the naked eye when mature but which is microscopic when administered in helminthic therapy. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helminths Wikipedia:Helminths], such as NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus, before commencing treatment with TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis. [22] [23] For this reason, anyone who is unsure which helminth species to use should ideally start with TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis, then add, or switch to, TTOthe ova (eggs) of the human whipworm, Trichuris trichiura, NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus or HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta at a later date, if necessary. [24]

Most people notice the first improvements between dose 4 (after 8 weeks) and dose 6 (after 12 weeks) and typically achieve remission after dose 10 (20 weeks after commencing the treatment). However, response times do vary, and more than 10 doses may be required in the case of patients with very severe or chronic disease. [25]

Quotein.gif
I saw improvement after the 4 doses, about 8 weeks. [26]

I am about 4 doses in and am just now feeling some improvement with UCUlcerative colitis (Colitis ulcerosa, UC) is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which specifically affects the large intestine, or colon, causing characteristic ulcers, or open sores. The main symptom of active disease is constant diarrhea mixed with blood, of gradual onset. symptoms. I have had some other changes like less joint pain, good sleep and less inflammation but just this past week I’d say I have fewer UCUlcerative colitis (Colitis ulcerosa, UC) is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) which specifically affects the large intestine, or colon, causing characteristic ulcers, or open sores. The main symptom of active disease is constant diarrhea mixed with blood, of gradual onset. symptoms. [27]
Quotein.gif
It took me until about the 7th dose (14 weeks) to feel better. [28]

Experience gained from the use of TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis in thousands of patients over more than a decade, both in and outside clinical studies, suggests that the earlier in the disease process that treatment is initiated, the more rapidly it will work and the longer remission is likely to last once it has been achieved.

If patients stop treatment after remission is achieved, they don’t usually relapse again for between 1 and 3 years and, if they do flare again, resuming dosing with TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis will result in a return to remission. It is recommended that those who do flare again should take a periodic maintenance dose, for example 1 dose of TSO500 every 6 or 8 weeks.

Quotein.gif
I no longer have to take TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis every 2 weeks. I take a dose (half a bottle of 2500TSO [29]) every couple of months. [30]

A few patients may need longterm treatment with TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis, and multiple sclerosis is one condition that may require this. Eczema is another, although this is dependent on how effectively the immune system can reset itself under the influence of the TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis. [31]

An even smaller number of patients may need to continue to take medication alongside TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis in the longterm.

Quotein.gif
I have had success only while taking TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis plus Humira. Humira alone does not make my Crohn's improve. Same with TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis. The combination seems to put me in clinical remission. [32]

One of the benefits of using a short-lived non-human helminth such as TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis or HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta is that, in comparison with the human-adapted helminthsAn intestinal worm which grows large enough to be seen with the naked eye when mature but which is microscopic when administered in helminthic therapy. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helminths Wikipedia:Helminths], NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus and TTOthe ova (eggs) of the human whipworm, Trichuris trichiura, it is easier to experiment with the size and frequency of doses to find the optimal regimen for each individual.

Storage and survival of TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis

TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis is a very robust organism that can remain viable in soil for up to 9 years while exposed to all types of weather condition, from extremely cold to very hot. [33]

If stored in a refrigerator, TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis can remain viable for a couple of years, making it possible to take advantage of the cheaper multiple packs, and to keep doses in reserve - something which is not possible with HDCHymenolepis diminuta cysticercoids (Hi-men-o-lep'is dim-a-nu-ta sis-ti-sur-koid) - the larval cysts of the rat tapeworm, Hymenolepis diminuta, which will only remain viable for a couple of weeks in a refrigerator. The excellent longevity of stored TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis, and the fact that it usually produces results more rapidly than TTOthe ova (eggs) of the human whipworm, Trichuris trichiura, also make it ideal to be kept in reserve by users of the human hookwormA helminth that lives in the small intestine. Necator americanus (NA) is the only hookworm species used in helminthic therapy. Its microscopic larvae are applied periodically to the skin., NAthe human hookworm, Necator americanus, as an insurance against the loss of their colony, or an interruption in benefits following the use of antibiotics or certain foods.

I keep TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis for emergencies, such as, if I have to take antibiotics, or I accidentally ingest something that harms my (human) helminthsAn intestinal worm which grows large enough to be seen with the naked eye when mature but which is microscopic when administered in helminthic therapy. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helminths Wikipedia:Helminths]. [34]

Where do TSthe porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis live?

In humans, TSthe porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis have been observed to settle predominantly in the caecum and the ascending and transverse sections of the colon, [35] as shown by the red text in the following representation.


mouth ➤ oesophagus ➤ stomach ➤ duodenumjejunumileumcaecumAscending colonTransverse colonDescending colon ➤ rectum

Given that TSthe porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis eventually settle in the caecum and colon, it might be assumed that administration of TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis via enema might be a viable alternative to the oral route, but it isn't. The eggs need the biochemical signal provided by the sudden increase in pH from the stomach (pH1) to the gut (pH8), which triggers hatching. [36]

The question of possible TSthe porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis persistence

There is very little evidence to suggest that TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis might develop to adulthood and persist in humans, and some of the evidence that has appeared lacks credibility.

The first two reports, above, both concerned single individuals. In the first, patent infection was claimed on the basis of a biopsy and, in the second, by colonoscopy and the passage of unembryonated whipwormA helminth with a tapering whiplike body that lives in the colon. In helminthic therapy, the microscopic eggs of either the human Trichuris trichiura (TTO) or pig Trichuris suis (TSO) are taken in a drink. eggs in the subject’s faeces.

The subject in the second study had previously hosted the human whipwormA helminth with a tapering whiplike body that lives in the colon. In helminthic therapy, the microscopic eggs of either the human Trichuris trichiura (TTO) or pig Trichuris suis (TSO) are taken in a drink., Trichuris trichiuraThe human whipworm used in helminthic therapy and taken periodically as microscopic eggs (TTO) in a drink. (TTthe human whipworm, Trichuris trichiura), which was assumed by those conducting the study to have been eradicated following the administration of mebendazole. However, the use of mebendazole to eradicate TTthe human whipworm, Trichuris trichiura is not reliable unless 100mg of the drug is taken twice daily for at least 3-5 days (see Terminating a human whipworm infection) so, in spite of the bold claim by the researchers that they were the first to report a patent TSthe porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis infection in a human volunteer undergoing TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis treatment, it is likely that the adult whipwormsA helminth with a tapering whiplike body that lives in the colon. In helminthic therapy, the microscopic eggs of either the human Trichuris trichiura (TTO) or pig Trichuris suis (TSO) are taken in a drink. observed in this case were TTthe human whipworm, Trichuris trichiura and not TSthe porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis, and that the eggs were TTOthe ova (eggs) of the human whipworm, Trichuris trichiura and not TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis.

In the third study, above, only a single sample of Trichuris eggs showed merely a similarity to sequences of TSthe porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis.

It has been reported anecdotally by one researcher that individual TSthe porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis might survive for as long as 6 weeks, and one TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis self-treaterSomeone who treats their own disease or condition without medical assistance., who had never used any other whipwormA helminth with a tapering whiplike body that lives in the colon.

However, these worms were never confirmed to be TSthe porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis, and no adverse effects were reported by the patient.

Doctors carrying out routine colonoscopy examinations on patients who are taking TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis have not reported finding any mature TSthe porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis, and none have been observed in any of the clinical trials that have used this species, even though they included hundreds of patients. To read these studies, search the following page for "Trichuris suisThe porcine (pig) whipworm used in helminthic therapy and taken as microscopic eggs (TSO) in a drink every two weeks.".

Manufacturer and supplier of TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis

The strain of TSOthe ova (eggs) of the porcine (pig) whipworm, Trichuris suis supplied by Tanawisa was originally sourced from the United States Department of Agriculture farms in Baltimore, Maryland, and was used in the studies by Weinstock et al, and in all other clinical trials in humans. [37]
