I apologize for the wide text spread, but after many attempts at getting rid of it and
having lost this post three times already, I'm going with it as is. Since the real value of
this post is as a reference list, I don't think the wide text field will matter much (unless
it causes a site problem).
Please read the attachment first for an understanding of why I have posted this
reference list. I hope it will help you, but please use this information cautiously.
The following is a compilation of resources I've been gathering for the past nine months
on lauric acid/monolaurin/glycerol monolaurate/Lauricidin.
A good place to start is at this webpage, a review in an alternative medicine publication:
"Minimum Inhibitory Concentrations Of Herbal Essential Oils And Monolaurin For Gram-Positive and Gram-Negative Bacteria" by Preuss HG, Echard B, Enig M, Brook I, Elliott TB, April 2005.:
"Glycerol monolaurate inhibits the effects of Gram-positive select agents on eukaryotic cells" by Peterson ML and Schlievert PM, Feb 2006:
"Coconut: In Support of Good Health in the 21st Century" by Mary G. Enid, PhD. Mention of Chlamydia pneumoniae inre artery disease. "...Some of the pathogenic gram-negative bacteria with an appropriate chelator have been reported to be inactivated or killed by lauric acid and monolaurin as well as capric acid and monocaprin (See above, Bergsson et al 1997 and Thormar et al 1999)." So far I haven't been able to get those two full articles, but I'm pursuing them as well as the one listed below on Mpn.
"Effects of monoglycerides on Mycoplasma pneumoniae growth" by RD Fletcher, AC Albers, JN Albertson, JJ Kabara, Journal of the American Oil Chemists' Society , January, 1983 DOI 10.1007/BF02540887 Pages 9-40

Website supportive of lauric acid research, focused on benefit to the HIV/AIDS community:
"Canadian AIDS Treatment Information Exchange...Fact Sheet" on monolaurin:
"Rays of Hope: Managing HIV/AIDS in Africa", a treatment handbook by the Jesuits and Caritas Internationalis. This is a very interesting document.
Go to Appendix 8 on p. 130: http://www.caritas.org/Upload/R/RaysofHope.doc

"A Comprehensive Guide to Managing Autism", by Willis S. Langford, another very interesting document. Dr. X treatments seems to follow this school of thought in treating autism, MS, and other chronic inflammatory diseases. The introduction touches on genetically based underproduction of metallothionein, the factor he thinks underlies and generates all the other factors either directly or indirectly.
