The growth of the bacterial-like organisms that appear to be at the foundation of the so-called Morgellons condition has been positively inhibited. That is the discussion included at this juncture. Clifford Carnicom recognized in a previous work (see the paper titled ”MORGELLONS: A DISCOVERY AND A PROPOSAL” dated February 22, 2010) that these organism(s) thrive in an acidic environment in the presence of an hydroxyl radical and oxidizers in general, and that application of a set of specific antioxidants inhibit the growth of the organism(s) in the presence of the hydroxyl free radical and the creation of a more alkaline environment.
Detailed images of the testing performed by Carnicom in this experiment show side by side comparisons of both an inhibited culture growth of the chlamydia-like organism referenced and researched in many of Carnicom's papers, and those of an uninhibited growth. Note that the inhibited culture was subjected to the presence of three specific hydroxyl scavenging antioxidants at the beginning of the trial. The specific antioxidants being used are that of ascorbic acid, sodium citrate and glycerol. The reasoning behind choosing these specific antioxidants is outlined in the above mentioned Carnicom paper.
Testing on two canine blood samples (microscopy pictures of the canine blood cells are included on this page) sent to Clifford Carnicom reveal that both animals show the existence of the chlamydia-like organism within the blood and the serum in a fashion identical to that which has been repeatedly found in human blood samples. This research reveals that the consideration of biological symptoms, structures and characteristics of the Morgellons condition must now be extended to include other life forms beyond that of the human.
At a minimum, this consideration now extends to the mammalian segment of the animal kingdom. There is additional research (external DNA examination and culture analyses) underway which suggests that this discovery may extend further to include the plant kingdom or the food supply; further examinations are required to clarify the initial findings.
An organism and a method that damages the condition of the blood has now been identified and it has been directly observed. The blood variations reported here are in direct association with the existence of and the severity of the so-called "Morgellons" condition.
A partial summary of the research accumulated through this site on the so-called "Morgellons" issue is presented in this work. These summaries include fascinating, if not disturbing, details of the many years of work that Clifford Carnicom has put into his research that include the fact that: all individuals who participated in this research exhibit internal biological filaments and blood anomalies; the cultures produced from the internal biological filaments (dental samples of those participating in this research) have been shown to produce an erythrocytic (blood) form; and that the production of erythrocytic forms within direct biological filament samples and by culture is completely outside the known boundaries of conventional science and biology, and that it is repeatedly evident that these same erythrocytic forms can withstand (and even flourish in) extremely adverse environmental, chemical and thermal conditions. Many more details are provided in this long list of things known about Carnicom's work in this area.
This paper reiterates that there needs to be the clarification of the term 'Morgellons' to sway from originally being perceived as manifesting primarily an anomalous skin condition. Though there is a small portion of the population classified as having the Morgellon's condition, who show skin lesions that resist healing and have the presence of filaments that emanate from these sores, it is not the skin condition that defines the actual pathology. More recent research strongly indicates the underlying symptoms are much deeper and more broadly distributed than has been realized, and that blood borne vectors may be a common denominator amongst affected individuals. The presence of skin anomalies as the primary criterion for determining the existence of the condition appears to be especially deficient. Any reference to supposed "delusional parasitosis" in light of the physical examinations and documentation available appears to be a gross miscarriage and misdirection of effort to help these people, and needs to stop.
Work has been conducted over the past one to two months that appears to be important and it may have significant impact on current research into pathogens being found in samples discussed in the most recent Carnicom papers. It appears as though a primary pathogenic form under evaluation that is associated with the so-called "Morgellon’s" condition may have been successfully cultured. If this proves to be the case, it offers the potential to begin very serious research on the methods to control, inhibit, reduce or eliminate the pathogenic forms within the human body. Unknown pathogens are difficult to identify, treat and remove if they exist only within the body; there is tremendous benefit if such pathogens can be grown or developed in a culture medium under controlled conditions. This report may offer a pathway to that process. Further research at this time continues to show identical pathogens in samples that are viewed under an enhanced microscope setup, that without such enhancement, these images and what they reveal would not be possible. This would not have allowed the progress in this area of study by Carnicom that will possibly have tremendous positive implications for all of humanity.
This paper discusses a method that has been established to remove at least a portion of the pathogenic forms that have been reported extensively by Clifford Carnicom in his recent papers. The method involves the use of red wine or a red wine-hydrogen peroxide mixture as an extended rinse for the mouth. It is clearly stressed in this work that the pathogenic forms under investigation are repeatedly showing up in the general population, regardless of whether certain "skin anomalies" (typically falsely considered the Morgellon's condition) are present or not. The pathogenic forms were, however, first discovered as a result of examination of these same skin anomalies. The segregation of only certain individuals as having the "Morgellon’s" condition is completely and totally false; the general population is involved whether they would like to know of it or not. The pathogens found have now been discovered repeatedly across all major body systems and functions, including skin, blood, hair, saliva, dental(gum), digestive, ear and urinary samples. To date, no human being is excluded from the findings of recent research through this site; hopefully exceptions to this case will soon be found.
There is increasing evidence that the general population may be affected by at least four pathogenic forms, and that many have been seriously compromised by at least four pathogenic forms under examination. These recurring pathogen forms are: 1) An encasing or encapsulating filament, often barely visible to the human eye, measuring on the order of 12 to 20 microns in thickness. This bounding filament form usually contains within it a network of sub-micron fibers that are generally in parallel alignment with one another; 2) A network of sub-micron filament forms that are usually encased within the bounding filament referred to above. This form has some morphological similarity to fungal forms, but no suitable match to any known species exists at this time; 3) A sub-micron spherical to oblate structure whose best size estimate is currently on the order of 0.5 - 0.7 microns (asbestos fibers are on the order of around 2 microns). These structures can and often do occur in large numbers within the biological samples; and 4) What is being called, for the time being, a "hybrid" form. This form has properties that are somewhat in between the sub-micron Chlamydia-like form and the sub-micron filament form. The remainder of this paper will present evidence that visible skin anomalies are not a suitable criteria to establish the existence of the so-called "Morgellon’s condition" and that certain pathogenic forms may be repeating internally within a broad cross-section of the general population.
At this point, there are three more samples added to the research of Morgellon's that are showing the same basic apparent pathogenic forms as those previously observed. Added to this list of samples researched are: 1) the 5th match of this observation match set showing that an individual not outwardly manifesting Morgellon's symptoms can demonstrate the internal Morgellon's symptoms of blood disturbance and Chlamydia-like form - this individual, in images of a gum-dental infectious sample shows a 'hybrid' form not seen before...that is, both oblate and fibrous forms appear in the same sample; 2) the 6th sample shows a unique characteristic not seen yet - that is, that the filament, as opposed to encasing a sub-micron fibrous network, instead encases the Chlamydia-like organisms, demonstrating that a real possibility is taking place where there is morphing between all three reported forms in individuals. This subject's samples support the possibility that an individual not outwardly manifesting Morgellon's symptoms can demonstrate the Morgellon's symptoms of anomalous fibrous form; and 3) the 7th sampled individual's saliva sample has a highly abnormal mucous that this individual notices reacts to ultraviolet radiation. This sample shows that detected Chlamydia-like structures, filamentous and hybrid forms are being detected across major systems of the human body, including circulatory, digestive and skin.
Research on blood samples from numerous individuals continues in this paper, and there are three main points up to this time in the study of anomalies found in the blood of these people: 1) The preliminary assessment on the nature of the two primary structural forms within the blood appears that Chlamydiae or Chlamydiae-like organisms could be the leading candidate for investigation in the Morgellon's pursuit as well as in the investigation of the aerosol operations. Readers may wish to review the Carnicom paper titled ’MORGELLONS: AGENTS OF INFECTION’ (dated January 1, 2008); 2) The vast majority of blood samples observed are showing various degrees of anomalous form, and the degree of this damage appears to correspond directly to the number of anomalous structures that are found in any individual sample; and 3) The anomalies in the blood samples have transcended age....they have now been observed in the same form within the blood of a nine year old child.
Microscopic images of this young child are provided in this work in support of the above claims and observations. It can be noted in the images presented that cellular integrity damage is apparent in these photographs and sub-micron structures are often visible, and the degree of cellular damage appears to correspond directly to the number of chlamydia-like structures within the blood cells.
An individual with Morgellon’s symptoms has recently expelled a massive volume of fibrous material from the gums of the mouth. The fibers, upon very high magnification, reveal themselves to be identical in size, structure and form to the skin fibers that are documented in detail in earlier papers mentioned below. This now brings to four the number of samples from entirely different mediums and environments that are showing similar to identical morphology. High magnification microscope images are included in this work showing identical sub-micron filaments within a major filament structures and spherical entities within the filaments seen in previous works mentioned above.
This paper attempts to define a hierarchy to be followed in order for a practical approach to determining the origins and implications of the pathogenic forms that are appearing to cross airborne and biological lines, and have been observed in airborne, skin, dental and blood samples. This hierarchy can be described as follows: 1) Conventional scientific expertise should be applied to the problem of identification of these two forms. 2) Modified or unconventional biological forms or interaction are then reasonable to consider. 3) Artificial, exotic and unfamiliar technologies could be explored for any relationship to unexplainable events or circumstances. There are two forms that require immediate identification as to their physical nature, function and purpose. The first of these is a sub-micron repeating filament that is enclosed within a larger bounding filament. The sub-micron filaments can only be seen with fairly advanced microscopy; the bounding filament is visible to the naked eye in many cases. The second form is a circular, spherical or oblate structure that also is measuring at the micron to sub-micron level.
This paper discusses the finding that there is essentially identical form, size and structure between the airborne filament samples that have been reported on extensively over the years in connection with the aerosol operations, the morphology of at least one characteristic Morgellon's fiber and with a series of blood anomalies that have recently been documented. The three main topics and their critical points outlined with supporting graphic images in this critical paper include: 1) Morgellon's fibers and skin samples - At least one characteristic fiber form from the Morgellon's condition contains within it a rather remarkable and extensive sub-micron fibrous network. 2) Blood samples - There appears to a remarkable coincidence of form and similarity between the internal structure of the Morgellon's skin fiber and the anomalous form in the blood of the same individual. 3) Airborne fiber - The latest microphotographs, at much higher magnification than was originally available in previous Carnicom papers, of the airborne fibrous sample that was sent to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for identification. This now clearly implicates and questions the role and relationship of the airborne filaments to Morgellon's and the blood conditions that are currently under research.
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?
Several different fibers from the same subject (whose story about his suffering with the Morgellon's condition is included in this paper) were examined in the writing of this report. Those fibers are scrutinized under varying intensities of magnification under microscopes as well as under a laser light, and the results build on a previous paper of the internal structures of the observed fibers, biological natures of the fibers, the growths, or 'budding' characteristics of the fibers and more. Attention will be called again to meet some immediate requirements for identification and further examination.
