CDC and Morgellons


Ever since writing the first article, 'What is Morgellons Disease?' back in July of 09, we have been faithfully monitoring the CDC website to see what and when they would have any useful information on this mysterious skin condition or unexplained dermopathy.

The are no answers in their latest communication...not a single piece of information on Morgellons or Morgellons symptoms that has any value.

All that is offered is a kind of let's sit around an talk about the issue rather than actually DO something about it. Guess they haven't figured out how to create a vaccination and make money with this disease OR the other rumors are true that the insurance companies do not want to offer coverage. As long as there is no official medical identification or course of treatment, they are safe to keep their money.

More proof that this is the kind of non-action help we will get from our government for protecting us from any real, not contrived, serious and current health issues.

Morgellons update from the CDC:

On September 24, 2009, CDC convened an external review panel made up of experts from the fields of dermatology, infectious diseases, public health, and mental health which examined the study activities to date and provided advice on future activities. The panel will provide recommendations and guidance to CDC about analysis they think should be conducted on the data. CDC’s CCID Board of Scientific Counselors met in November 2009 and was provided an update on the progress of the panel’s review.

When CDC receives a report from the external review panel, it will be made available on this website. When data analysis is complete and results of the study are available, the findings will most likely be published in a peer-reviewed scientific journal and disseminated through other channels, to CDC’s public health partners, such as State and local health departments and medical societies, and through this website.

Given the complexity and number of diverse symptoms reported by people who experience this unexplained skin condition, CDC is undertaking a measured and thorough scientific investigation which offers the best chance for finding useful answers. CDC is conducting this study along with Kaiser Permanente’s Northern California Division of Research. The study was designed and is being led by CDC.

The primary goals of the study are to learn more about who may be affected with this condition, the symptoms they are having, and what factors may contribute to the condition. The study involves: Determining the clinical and epidemiologic features of this condition; examining skin biopsies from affected patients; characterizing foreign material such as fibers or threads obtained from persons with the condition; and estimating rates of illness among the study population.
