A potential new antibiotic is making headlines this week as it harbors the promise to eradicate spirochetal disease, not only in people, but in animals as well. The upside? It doesn’t negatively affect native microbiomes.
History of Hygromycin
Hygromycin A was previously studied as an agent against swine dysentery in the 1980s.
Hygromycin, epihygromycin and a mixture thereof have potent inhibitory activity against Treponema hyodysenteriae and are useful for treatment of swine dysentery.
Because Hygromycin is so ineffective at killing other species of bacteria, it was employed in vaccine research for both existing and emerging diseases. The Hygromycin resistance marker has evolved into a common tool of the researchers available resources.
The hygromycin resistance vector was used to overexpress superoxide dismutase of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in M. vaccae in a form suitable for detailed structural analysis. The potential use of this approach for generation of novel recombinant mycobacterial vaccines is discussed.
FlightPath, an American company, has filed for permission to begin human trials of Hygromycin-A in people. If information about public participation of a drug trial for this exciting new antibiotic surfaces, we’ll notify you through our social media outlets. For certain, today is an exciting day for chronic Lyme disease patients – and potentially even goats!
One Million Signatures Morgellons Petition. A key petition to the President, Congress, and the CDC cleared a milestone achievement of one million signatures on September 29th, 2021. This gesture affirms that Morgellons patients are united in seeking validation, responsible diagnosis and treatment, and research into prevention and possible cures. Can America turn its’ back on one million voices?
Morgellons Patients Are Hopeful
TikTokers started early today, reporting their accounts of the infamous Morgellons petition reaching one million signatures. The scene was so exciting that these reports exemplify elation, and hope.
Still Room For More Signatures
While the main petition reached one million signatures, there are still other various petitions which can use your support. Check out our page about those petitions, and look at the top if you’d like to add your name to the petition being reported on in this article.
Lessons from The AIDS Movement of the 1980’s for Morgellons patients. There’s a broad difference between being a troll and speaking to facts that people often don’t want to discuss. The true craft of debate is not taking your opinions personally so that they become impeding principles. You can lose many friends along the way by failing to realize that your opinions, though likely supported by facts, might not be applicable for every situation. Being able to understand why someone is especially dedicated to an ideal is the first step towards rationalizing with them about your point of view.
Pride and lack of perception regarding how individuals in social circles feel about their own opinions can result in disregard at best and hurt feelings at worst. What kind of an ego for a political position do you have to maintain to alienate friends made over 40 years? Is it worth it when the principles no longer matter and circumstances evolve?
Dealing with Morgellons there are critics on both sides of the fence. Those who refuse to acknowledge the science about what Morgellons is (An Association Between Morgellons Disease and Lyme Disease? (medscape.com)) because that would mean having to face the responsibility of being previously wrong about the skin conditions existence as well as the common, stigmatized, and prevalent bacterial infection associated with it, and those who refuse to acknowledge the science about what Morgellons is because that would mean having to evolve their perspective beyond their subjective experiences. The latter want Morgellons to legitimize their pet cult topic, like chemtrails, GMO transhumanism, vaccines as a causative factor, aliens, and many other sensational ideas.
The publication of the 2012, inconclusive, CDC study that “DISCLAIMER: The findings and conclusions in this report are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official position of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Kaiser Permanente or the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology.” (Clinical, Epidemiologic, Histopathologic and Molecular Features of an Unexplained Dermopathy (plos.org)) has resulted in a lapse in treatment for patients with this rare skin condition and associated bacterial infection. Neither one of those two groups will open up to the science until you begin to understand why they feel as strongly as they do about their opinions regarding MD. You can achieve “conversion” on both sides of the fence by tempering zeal and humoring perspectives. Most importantly you can achieve respect – by showing it.
What we’ve learned about people’s objections to Lyme disease is that it most often results from a complete lack of understanding about Borreliosis, often they are not competent to discuss the topic. Unfortunately, being blocked over the ideas of chronic Lyme disease, Lyme disease resulting in #MentalIllness, and Morgellons being a real condition associated with Lyme disease is not an uncommon occurrence. Many states stigmatize the topic of Lyme disease by way of not mandating updated training and adhering to outdated information. Not talking about it, being silent about it – these are evidence of a high control environment and not necessarily a free, science based society.
How activists of the AIDS movement addressed this stigma was with strategic, well-planned, and efficiently executed public displays of civil disobedience. Several members of the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power assembled protests against Wall Street, the FDA, the CDC, local and regional governments, and even Congress and the President. These efforts, backed by science-based factual information, resulted in better access to care, less-expensive medications, and probably most importantly – more expedient diagnosis and access to responsible treatment.
You cannot harbor an infectious process that is demonstrated to alter behavior without being an impediment to your own success, and you can see that infectious process working in half a million new Americans each year. The arguments that you’re fixated on Lyme, that you’re trying to apply your own disease to everyone, and that it would heal up if you stopped focusing on it are all manipulative tactics employed by the community to cover for a medical system which refuses to implement an infrastructure to adequately elicit and treat these hidden infections in a timely manner.
By learning the lessons achieved through the history of the AIDS movement, and paying attention to local efforts like TAC, it’s possible to enact real change through effective community demonstration. There is a purpose and a higher goal towards raising awareness and lobbying for change, even if you’re labeled as a troll by communities who aren’t ready to receive the message about an objective concern that is increasingly likely to indiscriminately affect any one of their members.
Wikipedia credibility in question after conflicting information for Morgellons disease appears between regional platforms. Recently, Wikipedia France updated its article about Morgellons on their page which curates facts concerning the rare skin condition. This left Wikipedia USA in an embarrassing situation as the same evidence is strangely absent on its page about Morgellons Disease.
We reported two years ago about the information being included on the France Wikipedia page regarding Morgellons, however since that time new information has appeared. Below we present excerpts from the Wikipedia article, translated, in order, and within their respective categories. Please visit the page yourself, however, to see the entire article in context. You can utilize Google Translate, or Edge Browser Translator to read the text in English.
The previous clinical picture is heterogeneous, but it may correspond to the category of “parasitic delirium”.
The few authors convinced of the existence of a somatic origin to Morgellons (neither delusional disorder ,nor fake disorder and others…) reject the conclusions of the Pearson report (2012) of the CDC. Their criticism is based on the fact that the study did not include the appropriate study subjects, and that it cannot exclude an unidentified or undecoated physiological cause.2. They therefore propose a new case definition for the subjects to be studied: chronic skin lesions of spontaneous appearance (it is the lesions that cause scratching, and not scratching or extraction attempts that cause the lesions), type of ulcerations, and where we find (distinctive criterion) white, black or colored filaments included under the skin or piercing through it. These filaments require, to be visible, a magnification x502.
According to M Middelveen, these filaments are composed of organic proteins, mainly keratin and collagen abnormally produced from keratinocytes and fibroblasts of the skin epithelium. It would be equivalents of very fine hair or hair. In view of a statistically frequent association with a diagnosis of chronic Lyme, the author hypothesizes that borrelia (intracellular bacteria) penetrating fibroblasts could induce this production2.
Skeptics highlight the fact that the elements found are very diverse, inert (such as textile fibers, fragments of nail polish …) or organic (hair, plant or insect debris …) by fortuitous or voluntary deposits14,27,30. The association with a chronic form of Lyme disease is all the less convincing because its biological diagnosis is itself controversial.
The possible existence of an association with a borreliainfection remains under discussion: for a very large majority, Morgellons are only a variant of psychogenic disease, or an unexplained collective syndrome, some believe that there could exist, among Morgellons, a real subgroup, of dermatosis or pruritus, of infectious neurological origin (chronic infection with borrelia or more generally with spirochetes)20,45.
The way Morgellons is blanketly presented in the United States may account for why so many patients endure undue stigma and rejection.
Clearly, between the two pages it seem the audience in France is going to have more information than those in the United States. This is obviously misinformative to the American audience and may be a legitimate conspiracy worth reviewing more closely.

Morgellons news can result in strong emotions. Typically the story is the same – Morgellons patients are delusional. The past several weeks however have arrived on the wings of change towards a final rendezvous with destiny. In this article we look at the top three online articles which had the greatest impact towards legitimizing Morgellons Disease!
This article is especially important as the relationship with Morgellons patients and Professional Dermatologists has become damaged since the Unexplained Dermopathy was introduced. Patients complaining of artifacts and threads coming out of their skin had historically been regarded and treated as mentally ill. However, perhaps the historical approach had missed evidence which modern science can now elicit?
Whoa – well if this didn’t knock your socks off you may not be aware of just how influential Medscape is in the medical industry. Having this Morgellons research paper syndicated through Medscape is a major step towards the goal of having MD widely accepted.
Medscape is the leading online global destination for physicians and healthcare professionals worldwide, offering the latest medical news and expert perspectives; essential point-of-care drug and disease information; and relevant professional education and CME.
Don’t you hate it when some new trendy conspiracy comes along and they somehow rope ‘Morgellons’ in with it? So does Reuters, and that’s why they were sure to include a link to “History of Morgellons disease: from delusion to definition” by Marianne Middelveen in their article debunking the claims that face masks contain nanoparticle ‘Morgellons’ parasites.
Reuters is a global news agency that was founded nearly 170 years ago. Our journalists work all over the world and are guided by the Trust Principles, which state that Reuters must report the news with integrity, independence, and freedom from bias.
