Immunology of DMT: A talk with Attila Szabo

Attila Szabo is a molecular biologist and the world's foremost researcher in the immunology of DMT in mammals. He lives in Hungary and will be Skyping in for an exclusive interview with Biohack Austin!

Attila's research suggests DMT plays an important role in the human immune response, and recent research has also suggested it has powerful tissue regeneration and neuroprotective properties.

If you are interested in DMT or the human immune system you do not want to miss this!!

The history of DMT usage in human society dates back thousands of years, both to the Eleusinian mysteries (corresponding in place and time with the birth of ancient Greece), and to ancient tribal shamans living deep in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.

Although possession of DMT was internationally criminalized by the United Nations in 1971, research has continued on this exceedingly interesting and powerful molecule.

Today, we have since proven that:

• DMT is evolutionarily a highly conserved molecule. Most living organisms are genetically coded for the production of DMT.

• DMT has been extracted in significant amounts from the pineal glands of rats. [Ref]

• The human brain contains active transport systems for DMT.

• Humans diagnosed with schizophrenia have spinal fluid concentrations of DMT an average of 3x higher than a control group.

• The highest concentrations of DMT found in humans is in the fetal placeta, and then in lungs. Children's lungs have significantly higher concentration than adult lungs.

• DMT is an endogenous ligand for the sigma-1 receptor (formerly classified as an opioid receptor), and modulates interleukin-10 secretion. Interleukin-10 is a protein which inhibits the synthesis of a number of cyotokines. Cyotokines mediate/cause inflammation (an increase in the diameter and permeability of blood vessels). [Ref]
