Tam Tam, south, anyone?
Can you make sense of this? about the actin?
Fibrosis occurs in multiple organs and tissues ...and is characterized by the accumulation of connective tissue (myofibroblasts and misfolded a-smooth muscle actin). ...Although fibrosis severely affects the functioning of organ or tissue and is often life-threatening, no effective therapy is currently available to attenuate the process."

Cell Biology of Filamentous Influenza Virus (5/6/2002)
"...spherical virus production predominates in fibroblasts and non-polarized epithelial cell lines, filamentous virus production requires a polarized epithelial cell type ...a viral component may be interacting with the actin cytoskeletal network to promote filamentous particle formation. Thus, filamentous influenza virus formation requires the interaction of viral specific components with host cell components, presumably actin or actin-associated proteins."
HOPE YOU DON't MIND TAM TAM if I throw some more clues out there!

Public health policies blame the victims, saying FMD and its various secondary effects are either genetic or self-inflicted. Laws are used to remove the afflicted from society, and new legislation is planned to offload responsibility for the disabled and dysfunctional. Other plans are in development to take away victims’ civil rights and rights of citizenship in later stages of disease progression, including the right to vote.
Ie., See: http://www.atsnn.com/story/90609.html
In short: FMD is epidemic but ordinary Americans cannot access early diagnosis or preventive medical treatments; available methods are not being implemented to stop FMD’s spread and transmission, or to remove contaminants that cause disease progression. Americans are left with no way out, unable to avoid infection or exposure to contaminants that promote and speed disease progression, and unable to find treatment. Many will become physically disabled or mentally dysfunctional long before retirement age – but will not have access to funds or other supports. Many, likely the majority, will lose their voting rights along with their ability to work, think and love.
FMD was acknowledged officially as a new but rare disease in 1938. Today, most Americans are infected by adulthood. FMD usually incubates silently in the body for decades before striking. It is progressive, degenerative and incurable. It is always eventually fatal, and is seldom diagnosed and treated before it becomes life threatening. Early diagnosis and treatment are not covered by insurance. In order to survive socially and professionally without medical help, victims are forced to try and hide their symptoms from the world and often, themselves.
65% of reported FMD cases in the USA are diagnosed in autopsy, and the disease is found in almost 100% of reported deaths.

Awwwwwwww People.........Look at the reasoning for not being treated!
Look at the year this began.....FMD 1938, the same year DOP was established the Ekbom Theory.
We have here...................This is it, folks now get the specifics.
I think someone has already done the homework.
Actin and the fibers are fibrils and filaments, the EU keyed me off to this.
and there is more, but, there are also many places working on this and are documenting this.
Please do read and you will find almost everything we have discussed on LB and here.
MD is pretty much explained here as well, as is any 0f the neuro diseases.
Will come up with list of those who are aware and how they can help.
We had it all in bits and pieces folks.
Now, we know our numbers and those who care are out there. We will find them.
And yes C3, C4, you name it is there, and certain ones are susceptible and X-linked recessive is involved.
Hence, the POLIO, AIDS, LYMES, ALZHEIMERS, MORGELLONS and I would add Muscular Dystrophy. Been lookin a long time folks, but, this was beyond our control even before we were born.
You scientist, that are brave, please do come out and let us know who is trustworthy.
Trustworthy? why that's anyone that does not work for the government Sky. Great post you did there. Interesting too. Hey, what's your take on the "You Know" blood disease , God I can't even say it......? Just curious, if you have looked at it anymore.....I turned it off for a day. But it's Monday early morning so....haha....I can talk about it....Seriously, I have my Doctors apn't tomorrow since I did not make it Friday.
Dear 1arrow, Hi, I did not forget to get back with you- It was strange. Like a week after you Posted here and I said I was interested in learning more about the treatments, I read an article that said the exact opposite.
So it thru me off, hince, I had forgotten about it. You said:
There have been doctors curing HIV/AIDS complex with Ozone therapy. One doctor had 318 documented cases. They (FEDs) destroyed his clinic an put him in jail.
Well, that's comforting.... sign me up.....Can you give a breif rundown on how much it cost, how many sessions, how long are the sessions.....(is this like a hiperbaric chamber?) or totally different?
Administered by a physician or a nail tech? haha I'm just joking....hell, the nail tech would probably be better. Lastly, why the the stupid-arse gov't bust this person.....I mean why? Were they po'd that the population was not being knocked off soon enough.....?
I just do not get it....I do not get how in the hell this President has gotten away with the stupid invasive , breaking the law crapola that he has?
I mean they can break into our homes and not even tell us until after the fact.....Thanks to Bushy.......
But Mr Bill, Smokews a cigar in the oval office and all hell breaks loose....Impeach him b/c of sex with someone besides that that that....Hillery woman? Like that's any of our business.....but Lord, let George and his patriot acts of insanity come into our home and read what we write on the internet and it's okay......shhhhhh.........well I hate em!
This is the worst president that we will ever witness I do believe. Sorry.....to get off the subject.....can you please tell me why? What was the purpose of the raid? Did they find what they were after?
Oxford and it's affiliates:
the next step?
Fundamental control over supra-molecular self-assembly for organization of matter on the nano-scale is a major objective of nanoscience and nanotechnology. ‘RNA tectonics’ is the design of modular RNA units, called tectoRNAs, that can be programmed to self-assemble into novel nano- and meso-scopic architectures of desired size and shape. We report the three-dimensional design of tectoRNAs incorporating modular 4-way junction (4WJ) motifs, hairpin loops and their cognate loop–receptors to create extended, programmable interaction interfaces. Specific and directional RNA–RNA interactions at these interfaces enable conformational, topological and orientational control of tectoRNA self-assembly. The interacting motifs are precisely positioned within the helical arms of the 4WJ to program assembly from only one helical stacking conformation of the 4WJ. TectoRNAs programmed to assemble with orientational compensation produce micrometer-scale RNA filaments through supra-molecular equilibrium polymerization. As visualized by transmission electron microscopy, these RNA filaments resemble actin filaments from the protein world. This work emphasizes the potential of RNA as a scaffold for designing and engineering new controllable biomaterials mimicking modern cytoskeletal proteins.

Just one, there are more.......
HOPE YOU DON't MIND TAM TAM if I throw some more clues out there!
Is this a game being played? What does HOPE YOU DONT MIND....CLUES?????
This is the reason I have stopped payng attention to this site.
During the End Times, Good will battle Evil. Where do you stand?
I do not appreciate the mockery. If you would just read. Maybe you would learn something.
I was being friendly, that is all.
Randy, there is so much involved in this, you do not have a clue.
How in the heck do you think any type of mutation occurred that would cause any disease?
Mutations DNA to DNA. Do you get it?
Called transposons. Get it?
Do you ever think?
Please don't come on here, if your purpose is to mock.
I am looking for this and will till I die.
When the AMA turned on us dear, they turned on all of us. Until you recognize the history and what has happened, you will never have a clue as to how any DNA change using bacterias/viruses will affect human genes and will only cause adaptation and natural selection to happen due to mutation.
So America is in for new diseases because of the what has happened in the past. When the first genes were altered, proteins rearranged, that is when this all started, whether bioweapon or just messing in the lab.
But, a scheme for causing human adaptation and natural selection or gene selection is in place, and if you cannot recognize that, then you really need to educate yourself.
Also dermatopathologists need to come back into Dermatology:
Ever heard of Dr. Weems?
CUTANEOUS ADULT MYOFIBROMA
Myofibromatosis was first described in infants and those lesions were often multiple or generalized. Subsequently, solitary lesions having this type of pathology have been described in adults and have been the subject of a moderately large series ref 1. Many of the solitary myofibromas from adults have a biphasic pattern consisting of fibromyxoid areas containing cells resembling smooth muscle cells plus more cellular areas within which there may be vascular channels resembling those found in pericytomas. The background stroma in the fibromyxoid areas is sometimes hyalinized. The architecture is often lobulated. Other cellular constituents and patterns have led to the conclusion that myofibromas may be related to other tumors having perivascular myoid differentiation ref 2 .
The current case (plus a photomicrograph from another adult case) has the biphasic pattern mentioned above. The myxoid component in the connective tissue was not prominent in the initial sections but is prominent in deeper sections stained another day. The cellular areas were not seen in the deeper sections. Therefore differences in sampling and staining could lead to varying interpretations regarding the pathology of this lesion.
This fragmented specimen was obtained from the dermis and subcutis of the cheek of a 26 year old female. The mass was solitary.
Maybe look at the pictures, might help.
Also, there are problems with Actin:
http://www.amjdermatopathology.com/pt/r ... 45!8091!-1
These are the people we need to examine our lesions.
This is you twos Mediateor!!! Hey stop it; we all need each other now.
Randy, You know I love you so know that when i say this, I'm not doing it in a harsh or malicious way, but I have to agree with Skytroll there.
Think of it this way, maybe, just maybe she was being facetious????
But I know you are smart Randy, and that 's why I did not get what you said to Sky.....This lady has put a plethora of solid, cold -hard facts out there. I just could not even grasp the thought of you , nor anyone else bringing down her great postings to the sophemoric level by saying something to how she addressed TamTam? I mean, wtf and whotf even cares about that.
Hell, maybe your are a diversion tactic as well as the many others ? I'm
Not being mean either- I'm really not. I know that you and Skytroll spoke on the phone before a couple of months back....How do I know? Because she wrote me. You know what she said Randy? That you were a very smart girl! Nothing but good came out of Skytrolls mouth.
Like I said, I'm not siding on anyone's side here,....I don't have time to do that .
Anyway, let's please move on......and

My mother has morgellons and I have been feeling so scared. I am scared for the other members in my family also who are staying (renting the other side of her house) and share her kitchen space. 3 of whom are children. I am the only child (I am 43 years old) of my moms who believes her. She has been desperately researching this and is taking cipro and I don't know if she has heard about the aloe vera. She talks a lot about Sulfer being an alleviator to this problem. She uses sulfer soap and other products along with her medicines. Sulfer lotion helps the itching.
I am devastated. If you don't have lyme are you safe from this disease? Or does no one know. In California I read that Diane Feinstein is aware of this disease and that anyone with it is told to write to her about it.
Can you tell me if you know if anything else that can help?
Thank you so much.
I am sorry to hear that your Mother is suffering. Thank God she has such an understanding daughter such as your self!
As far as being believed, I have come to realize that not everyone can handle the truth so the denial you see becomes a coping mechanism. People are sometimes incapable of living in reality.
Please read everything you can on Dr. Schwartz’s treatment for this condition. So far I have found his protocol to be the most helpful thing we have as of yet in the way of medications. You may wish to contact him through this website.
So far there is no scientifically verifiable evidence linking the Fiber disease to Lyme disease in anyway what so ever. This condition has been speculated that it can be vectored by an insect (although not the only way to become infected) and I believe this.
Hang in there because it does get easier to deal with down the road. Once you figure out how a body is affected by this and how to treat it you and your Mom will feel better. We do have the knowledge to be able to reduce our symptoms.
Dermatech solutions have some products that have helped a lot of people so far and they have been very kind to us sufferers. You may wish call them as I have heard that they are very helpful on the phone.
http://shop.qbased.com/index.asp?PageAc ... ategory=12
Please contact the CDC, let them know you need some help. You may also wish to contact your Health Department, they are not as bad as what you may hear and can offer assistance if not actual treatment. You can contact Senator Feinstein if you like but I think you have a much better chance of asking Senator Boxer for help, just my opinion.
As far as being able to protect other innocent people, as sad as it is, there is nothing we can do about this for now but watch it happen. This is a very important issue that you may wish to address to the CDC when you write to them.
You may also find some support on Lymebusters but be very cautious in what information you decide to give and take on any site.
Good luck to you and your family, my prayers are with you.
Please keep us updated.
