July 2004 : why did Bicêtre's CHU hospital directory and Pr. Gérard Saïd put the blame on me, the author of the following writing after I supported and demonstrated 1990 that current radioisotope dilution assays are not specifique for true cobalamin ?
The disappearance of the parient's medical record as soon as at 1991 and later of the subscription to "Archives of Neurology" medical journal at november 1997 was organized by the same on the grounds that it is "a very bad medical journal", dixit Pr. Gérard Saïd, though he then moved heaven and earth at 2003 to affix his name to Hélène Ogier de Baulny's and Jacqueline Zittoun's in the same "very bad medical journal" (see below biblibliography n°19) after the neurologists of Bicêtre's hospital realized they failed the discovery of the "food cobalamin malabsorption syndrome" august 1990 calling it att that time "DIFFUSE DOMAGE OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM" (ATTEINTE DIFFUSE DU SYSTEME NERVEUX)
In their defense this syndrome was att that time almost unknown despite a princeps description up to 1973 by Swain and Docherholmen (since E. Andrès & al., up to 1978 since Martha L. Hutchinson.)
[But it was at 1990 since several decades known that an aetiology to neuro-psychiatric disturbances in elderly patients may be cobalamin deficiency, mainly by ileum malabsorption, as in Biermers' disease, but not only in the elderly and beacause of a Biermers' disease : gastrectomy, ileum resections, Zollinger-Ellison syndroma, pancreatitis, bothriocephalosis, intestin bacterial massive pullulement, vegetarianism, drugs metabolic interferencies, E.D.T.A., P.A.S, N²O, colchicine, éthanol, neomycin, where known as less common causalities to B12 vitamin defiency. Very rarely an inborn abnormal B12 cell metabolism is involved in adulds. Sever cobalamin (vitamin B12) deprival is rapidly lethal in the absence of diagnosis and cobalamin supplies].
In my case report by an aged patient - my own father - not only Schilling test was normal (35 %), but the cobalamin blood level was normal too (225 mg/l).
So the patient falsely described as wounded by a "DIFFUSE DAMAGE OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM" (sic) due to an Alzheimer disease, and consequently was over five weeks left whithout true care - only fluoxetine (Prozac*), leading him to a coma despite all clinical evidences he was suffering such a syndrome : subacute degeneration of the spinal cord and Hunter's glossitis.
Thanks the alert of nurses given to me that Biermer's disease treatment was not truly (falsely) applied. I did it, and the patient survived four years (instead of somes weeks as prognosed by the said Professor Saïd's neurologists.
The patient becames well quickly, recovering 30/30 by MMSE after Biermer's disease treatment truly applied,
That means :
1°) That the cobalamin blood level in such a syndrome can also be normal
The NDB12PP letal syndrome with normal Schilling test AND normal cobalamin blood level seems to be possible - as doctor Michel Serdaru, neurologist by "la Fédération Française de Neurologie" (FFN) - write down in "La maladie d'Alzheimer et autres démences" ("Flammarion Medecine Science" 1991).
2°) Maybe also a disguised attempt of murder by the said neurologists ? thus Michel Barrau, the public prosecutor, calls to a nonsuit 1998 !?
