As is often the case in science, things take much longer than an educated guess might expect. It had been hoped that preliminary results from the microscopy and spectroscopy analyses would have been done 2‐3 months ago. Unexpected difficulty has arisen with the processing, handling and shipping of the fibers. Even the commercial laboratories have been less than successful at helping us work through these problems. Simply put, the fibers have to be ‘preprocessed’ for much of the testing, and even for those tests not needing preprocessing, the labs want either dozens of identical copies of the material, or a single sample that is immobilized for shipping and yet accessible for analysis. These have proven to be unexpectedly challenging tasks. Still, progress is being made. When a suspect cause has been determined this information will be disseminated to physicians, public health officials and the Morgellons community as quickly as possible.
They had hoped that 2 or 3 months before the above statement itself was published that they would have the results, and now it’s been another 4 months. I’m grateful for anyone doing research on this but this is either an awful long to get what should be a simple analysis of fibers or perhaps the results have come back and they were inconclusive or found to be natural in origin, we just don’t know. I am perplexed on the lack of information coming out of all private research organizations working on this menace.
Other than Dr. Amin, who appropriately reported his findings regarding NCS there seems to be little, if any information being made available? I realized I’ll probably get hammered for such a post but this has been on my mind …
