A sufficient time period has elapsed to allow for the identification, classification and designation of a novel and ubiquitous life-form that is known to exist in association with the so-called "Morgellons" condition. This call has thus far gone unheeded within the scientific community and more rapid progress is required. It has been stated, by discovery (ref. The New Biology Jan 2014), that this informal nomenclature is no longer sufficient to characterize the situation; that of an extensive, repeating and culturable life form with known properties and characteristics.
A method has been established that shows promise of being effective in removing significant masses of biofilm that encapsulate large quantities of the "cross-domain bacteria" (CDB) as they have been identified and designated by this researcher. This method applies to oral cavities only and it is simple to investigate as to its efficacy. The identification of the CDB has been confirmed by microscopy; one unique feature of this organism is the frequent co-linear arrangement of the bacteria within an encasing filament. The various stages of growth of this life form have been documented extensively on this site, and a progression of development is understood. The term "Morgellons" as popularly used, is insufficient to characterize both the uniqueness of the life form and its ubiquity in the environment. The term "cross-domain bacteria" (i.e., CDB) has been established as being intrinsic to the origin of the life form; attention has been called to the the fact that the scientific nomenclature for this 'new biology' remains woefully inadequate. Any perception that this so-called "condition" is restricted to the human species is false; planetary consequences are before us. Please refer to earlier discussions that elevate the seriousness of this need for increased participation by the scientific and health communities.
Inhibition of growth of the so-called "Morgellons" condition in a cultured environment has been achieved. The primary agents of reduction here, both literally and chemically, are a series of powerful antioxidants. These include ascorbic acid (vitamin C), N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) and glutathione. The photograph below shows the result of a culturing process which has been subjected to these antioxidants and their impact upon growth; the effects are rapid and repeatable. The source of this culture is the result of a series of incubation, collection, isolation, extraction and purification processes applied to previous cultures. The original cultures are based upon the use of a variety of human, animal and plant samples, each of which produces identical growth forms. One of many precedents for this work is contained within a previous paper entitled, "Morgellons : A Discovery and A Proposal" (Feb 2010). The basis of the current work is a significant advancement in the development of culture methods.
