Human Anatomy, Physiology, and Medicine. Anything human!
Hello all. Just thought I would let the other "crazies" know that there are at least 2 more to add to the list. My husband and I are infested. I can attest to all Morgellons symptoms, including moving hair. We have been in contact with other sufferes via the phone. There seems to be a Dr. in Houston having some success. If anyone knows of any Dr. in the South willing to listen, I would be forever greatful. I have read myself into a frenzie over this. We were misdiagnossed with Scabies several weeks ago. After having actually spoken to someone who was locked up for being "nuts", I am too afraid to return to a Dr. I realize that we have to try all the different things I am reading about, but I can't even begin to begin. Way to overwhelmed at this stage. I do appreciate all I have been reading and will try to start the process. Fighting a battle with depression as this is truly to hard to believe. Thanks for listening. Scared in Georgia.
wELCOME TO fORUM......AND TO OUR DISEASE!
You did good! (Video) Something you said and a hyperlink that I found that possibly goes with it.......................
TAM TAM SAID "INVOLVED TECHNOLOGY REPRESENTS PROTEOMIC AND SYNTHETIC GENOMIC RESEARCH".......
THIS IS FROM 2001, BUT i HEARD THAT WAS THE YEAR.......
here you go:
Well, now this one paragraph alone says a helluva lot:
Probing the Proteome: The Development of Protein Biochips
Zyomyx is developing and commercializing the next generation of protein analytical devices that will bring to protein analysis the efficiencies of data collection that have enabled the genomic revolution. Specifically, Zyomyx is developing protein biochips. These miniaturized devices, analogous to the DNA biochips, will permit the simultaneous measurement of up to tens of thousands of proteins from small, complex protein samples. The company has combined microfabrication, advanced material science, and state-of-the art protein biochemistry with optical and electronic detection physics to create a versatile platform that can be optimized for high throughput protein profiling, protein structure and activity analysis, as well as, protein-protein and protein-small molecule interaction analysis. These tools are required to efficiently realize the commercial potential of the information that has been and will continue to be generated from the systematic genomic characterization of plants, animals, and man. As such, there is significant demand and hence commercial potential in the academic, pharmaceutical, and agricultural research communities. [color=red]This enabling technology will additionally create new and significant markets in the fields of diagnostics, toxicology, environmental monitoring, and forensics, as well.]To date, Zyomyx has created the first prototypes for protein profiling, the simultaneous detection and quantification of proteins from complex biological samples. The company is currently focused on the development and optimization of manufacturing processes for these devices as well as the refinement of the commercial applications and the device's performance. Expansion of the platform to additional applications is in progress.

Sorry about the caps; will not happen again. The following was already typed this way:
OKAY IN TAM'S VIDEO HE SAID BIPOLAR CELLULOSE LIKE FILAMENT, RIGHT?
THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS :
THIS ONE MAY BE EASIER.to read...AND WHAT??? THEY (the US) HAS A PATENT FOR IT?
Thank you. I will have to watch several times because there are question I have.
and what is this I stumbled upon?
Thermotoga maritima, a rod-shaped bacterium belonging to the order Thermotogales, was originally isolated from geothermal heated marine sediment at Vulcano, Italy. The organism has an optimum growth temperature of 80 degrees C. T. maritima metabolizes many simple and complex carbohydrates including glucose, sucrose, starch, cellulose, and xylan. Through conversion to fuels such as hydrogen, both cellulose and xylan have great potential as renewable carbon and energy sources. T. maritima is also of evolutionary significance, because small-subunit ribosomal RNA phylogeny has placed this bacterium as one of the deepest and most slowly evolving lineages in the Eubacteria.
The genome of T. maritima MSB8 is a single circular chromosome consisting of 1,860,725 base pairs with an average G+C content of 46%. The genome contains 1,877 prediced coding regions, of which 1014 (54%) have functional assignments, and 863 (46%) are of unknown function. Genome analysis reveals numerous pathways involved in the degradation of sugars and plant polysaccharides, and 108 genes that have orthologues only in the genomes of other thermophilic Eubacteria and Archaea. Completion of the T. maritima genome has revealed a degree of similarity with the Archaea in terms of gene content and overall genome organization that was not previously appreciated. Although the core of T. maritima may be eubacterial, almost one quarter of the genome is archaeal in nature. Eighty-one archaeal-like genes are clustered in 15 regions of the T. maritima genome that range in size from 4 to 20 kilobases. Conservation of gene order between T. maritima and the Archaea in many of the clustered regions suggests that lateral gene transfer may have occurred between thermophilic Eubacteria and Archaea.
I found this to be most interesting....since of course, just like I predicted, it could be used as a source of hydrogen, and has the potential for renewable carbon and energy sources. Boy, I bet the american Gov't, Dept. of Energy, really likes this one! Anyone else think so???
The social Life of disease- causing bacteria ( biofilms)
and thanks to TAM TAM when he said.......
" The organism is a stray target of a proteome research center"
There's more but this one will do for now (very short article that says quite a lot)
http://www.rosettabio.com/products/reso ... _model.htm
and this is very important:
Okay TAM TAM said......"The organism is a stray target of
Proteome Research Center".......
Well I think I was somewhere in that range of words when I stumbled upon this:
It is a Biodefense Research Center!!!

Great posts London - especially on the bipolar filaments! Most interesting.
To HELEN: Duh..just noticed your screen name.
I guess you are in the UK
Well, thank you Uk guy. You know what? This bi polar filiment
is also called a Miotic Spindle. I believe it was created to be
a weapon with Cancer. I say weapon b/c I believe it was the
reasoning behind finding cancer targets???? >Whatever that means.
If you go back to that post and look at the first one of the two
hyperlinks I posted, well at the very last paragraph of that article it
mentions this. I'm pulling a lot of articles up that I feel are very
relevent and important yet I can't read and describe what is exactly going on. This is far over my head. Plus I need help as far as opinions
of others here. I'd appreciate anyones help at looking at these sites that I've posted, i really would.
Now here is what I got from that bi-polar filiment: It is also called
a Miotic Spindle. So when I searched for this I found this article here-
It talks of using frog eggs and Magnetic beads!!! Can you believe this?
Here is what the Miotic Spindle is: the mitotic spindle, the dynamic macromolecular machine essential for the correct distribution of chromosomes to each daughter cell. The spindle is composed of microtubule polymers and many other factors that generate an antiparallel bipolar array.
Here's the hyperlink and a snippet from the article:
Developing simplified assays to study spindle assembly. Utilizing extracts prepared from eggs of the African frog Xenopus laevis and “artificial chromosomes” consisting of plasmid DNA-coated magnetic beads, we can generate bipolar spindles in vitro in the absence of focal microtubule nucleation centers (centrosomes) or specialized microtubule-chromosome attachment sites (kinetochores). DNA on the beads assembles into chromatin that is sufficient to induce microtubule polymerization and organization, but the molecular mechanisms behind this process are unclear. We are evaluating the roles of candidate chromatin factors and downstream microtubule effectors, including microtubule-associated proteins and motors in spindle assembly, and developing pure component assays directed towards molecular reconstitution.
Yes I am in the UK. By complete coincidence I am living bang on the border between Lancashire and West Yorkshire. I must admit that the technicalities of filiments, etc, that people discuss on this board are a bit beyond me. However, I do know that in my little town there is a raging case of what appears to be Morgellons. The understanding is that it was transported here in the wood of a packing case in which an engine was delivered to a company here. The engine (and case) came from the Bay area of California. My friend is very ill with it and has been trying to deal with it since last July. He has been diagnosed as delusional and has been on a 28 day section (detained against his will in the psychiatric hospital) because of the diagnosis. I had not seen him for some time and I bumped into him 2 weeks ago, in the garden centre. He was buying more chemicals to try and rid his business premises of it. He showed me a fibre protrude from a gaping lesion on his thumb. His shoulders were round his ankles and that night I searched the internet and found a complete set of his symptoms, as he had described them on the Morgellons Research Foundation web site (before I knew of the engine crate). We went to his GP and presented loads of papers printed off from the internet. They are still not convinced. This last week he has had some sucess with his premises by using his steam cleaner to introduce white vinegar into the environment and particularly up into the beams (it's an old mill).
NOW I have fibres coming out of my hands. Last night I found an itchy site on my leg and sure enough I produced a fibre from it and a "projectile" that went off into the room somewhere. I have spoken to the GP. He says that I have no fibres coming out of my hands. I have the contact details of a physician in Bolton that I received from Mary Leito. I am going to make an appointment on Monday before it gets a grip of me and my home and my cat. Also, last night I sent an email to the Calderdale and Kirklees Health Protection Unit, as Mary Leito had requested in her email reply to me.
Who else is doing what in the uk? What is the most effective way of dealing with it?
