A man's remarkably simple lupus theory
Tyler Malcolm is a retired commercial diver who lives in a small suburban town in Pennsylvania. He's waited twenty-five years for his lupus theory to be put to the test.
He is an animal enthusiast who provides year-round food for the wildlife that frequents his backyard and has made accommodations for the flying squirrels that have taken up residence in the Christmas storage boxes in his attic. You may be wondering who Tyler is and what role does he have with lupus?
In 1985 Tyler Malcolm, a twenty-something granite contractor read an article about SLE in the New York Times. He was intrigued as to why this serious autoimmune disease population was 90% female. He did not have a family member or loved one diagnosed with lupus. He had no scientific background, nor a medical degree; he was puzzled as to what the cause of the debilitating disease was. Tyler maintains that his ignorance of the disease better placed him in a position of objectivity and served as a powerful tool for hypothesis testing.
In the July issue of The Lupus Magazine, Kim Nault interviews Tyler and we learn all about his remarkable theory.
