An internet friend in the USA is trying to eliminate a parasite from his wife's body which has initially erupted from a tumor in her left breast. This is not a cancerous tumor. Details of the parasite are as follows. Any suggestions for any substance or treatment which would help eliminate this organism from this patient would be gratefully received. He has been working on this problem for over two years and has tried an enormous amount of alternative treatments.
An expanded phylogeny of social amoebas (Dictyostelia) shows increasing diversity and new morphological patterns
Social Amoebae or Dictyostelia are eukaryotic microbes with a unique life cycle consisting of both uni- and multicellular stages. They have long fascinated molecular, developmental and evolutionary biologists, and Dictyostelium discoideum is now one of the most widely studied eukaryotic microbial models. The first molecular phylogeny of Dictyostelia included most of the species known at the time and suggested an extremely deep taxon with a molecular depth roughly equivalent to Metazoa. The group was also shown to consist of four major clades, none of which correspond to traditional genera. Potential morphological justification was identified for three of the four major groups, on the basis of which tentative names were assigned.
