This paper discusses and presents applications of three independent methods established that appear to confirm the presence of developing modified erythrocytes (red blood cells) within cultured dental samples. These samples exhibit the characteristics of the Morgellons condition as previously researched and identified. All individuals tested thus far have produced the dental filamentous materials, regardless of whether visible skin anomalies are present or not. The erythrocytic detection methods are:
1. Direct observation under the microscope at relatively high magnification (8000x - 10000x) using developed microscopy techniques.
2. The use of the Kastle-Meyer presumptive test (visual and microscopic, sensitive test) for blood, a method commonly used in forensics for blood identification.
3. The HEMASTIX (TMP) presumptive forensic test (very high sensitivity) commonly used for blood identification.
This work details a study performed on five subjects’ blood samples as a comparison to each other. Only one had outward symptoms of the Morgellon’s condition – skin sores, lethargy, etc. Though each of the other four subjects didn’t exhibit these traits, they still had anomalies in their blood, which images provided in this paper show. The use of a laser is again employed in these samples to give better detail to these abnormal changes in the subjects’ blood samples. Some questions raised at this point of the Morgellon’s research include the following: What exactly is the anomalous form that is being observed? Is there any relationship between the sub-micron granular nature of the blood anomalies with the apparent similar granular nature of the Morgellon's fiber as it has been previously observed and reported? Is there any relationship between this apparent sub-micron fibrous blood anomaly and the sub-micron fibrous nature of the Morgellon's condition? Is there any relationship to the airborne fibrous samples that have been refused by the Environmental Protection Agency for identification?
The following sample requires identification. Those with further knowledge in mycology or microbiology are encouraged to respond. If any readers believe that they are able to identify the following materials, please respond with email to email@example.com or post a public message on the message board. Thank you.
