Micelles are used in drug delivery and vaccines such as small pox and tetanus and as a antigen carrier in live virus vaccines: Micelles have been well investigated as potential antigen carriers and are well reviewed
The invention by Moyer teaches methods and systems for generating a safe and effective oral smallpox vaccine for humans using a genetically defective strain of vaccinia virus to confer immunity following oral delivery of the vaccine.
This invention is one that expands on current use of vaccinia virus propagation developed for gene therapy applications, and pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals packaging and formulation technologies.
The vaccine invention can be delivered as a live virus with the ability to express viral proteins but unable to achieve complete, lytic virus replication, or it may be derived from such a virus, contain additional immunogens, or be delivered as viral antigens.
Furthermore, the invention establishes innovative methods for formulation and packaging and for preclinical testing of the vaccine invention for safety, efficacy and potency with the use of human intestinal and other test cells and diagnostic test systems and kits.
Under the claimed methods, micelles, micro-starch particles, omega-3 fatty acids, and other nanoparticles and immuno-potentiators are methods of preparing the vaccine for use.

The distinct character of surfactant gels: A smooth progression from micelles to fibrillar networks.
Distinct Character of Surfactant Gels: A Smooth Progression from Micelles to Fibrillar Networks
The connection between gels synthesized in the laboratory and those existing in biology (e.g., in normal or pathological cells) is a fascinating topic. Indeed, researchers on gels routinely make claims about the significance of their workwith respect to biology and the understanding of disease. In this context, the classification scheme suggested by Figures 1 and 2 can be useful. We propose that gel formation in the conventional sense is related to the formation of amyloid plaques that are implicated in a number of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and Huntington’s disease.21 The plaques are formed by the aggregation of proteins (often partially denatured) into amyloid fibrils, which in turn further aggregate to form platelets; both fibrils and plateletsmay form networks. The plaques are typically crystalline and have a solid-like character, i.e., they are a distinct phase from the contents of the cytosol.
Look at the pictures 'growth of fibrils' 'long fibrils/micelles' and 'forming of gel network'.
Hmmm... don't think so, Violet... we should be excited, this information comes from an EXPERT! in the field... of course, as you can see I didn't tell Mr. Freitas that I was researching Morgellons and that I would be publishing his response... Do you think that if I mentioned the ''M'' word... he would have responded?
You see, from what Jen (Lilsissy) posted earlier on another thread about a free fluid sample done, I already know that these carbon spheres are being used in our water treatments.
Putting micelles with water treatment took an instant with the combination of facts coming together at the same time.
In relation to this time of increasing censorship of the Christian faith, we can remember: "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, kindness, faith, meekness and self control, against such there is no law." (Galatians 5:22)
Still, this micelle finding doesn't explain everything but gives us a solid place to start looking. What is still in question is why are they showing to have a erythrocyte, red blood cell quality in them, as per Carnicom's findings?... and even more puzzling, we can obviously see that the GM fungus gnat is defecating micelles...
It seems very unlikely, (but not impossible), that the fungus gnat is producing micelle that have the quality of human blood in it, makes it very strange... how could this be possible? I keep looking...
When we look at micelles, we see that liposomes are next of kin...
When we look at liposomes we see:
''Liposomes are used as models for artificial cells.
A liposome is a tiny bubble (vesicle), made out of the same material as a cell membrane. Liposomes can be filled with drugs, and used to deliver drugs for cancer and other diseases.
Membranes are usually made of phospholipids, which are molecules that have a head group and a tail group. The head is attracted to water, and the tail, which is made of a long hydrocarbon chain, is repelled by water.
Liposomes, usually but not by definition, contain a core of aqueous solution; lipid spheres that contain no aqueous material are called micelles, however, reverse micelles (those creating fibers) can be made to encompass an aqueous environment.
* The use of liposomes for transformation or transfection of DNA into a host cell is known as lipofection.
In addition to gene and drug delivery applications, liposomes can be used as carriers for the delivery of dyes to textiles, pesticides to plants, enzymes and nutritional supplements to foods, and cosmetics to the skin.
It should be noted that formation of liposomes and nanoliposomes is not a spontaneous process. Lipid vesicles are formed when phospholipids such as lecithin are placed in water and consequently form one bilayer or a series of bilayers, each separated by water molecules, once enough energy is supplied . Liposomes can be created by sonicating phospholipids in water. Low shear rates create multilamellar liposomes, which have many layers like an onion. Continued high-shear sonication tends to form smaller unilamellar liposomes.
Further advances in liposome research have been able to allow liposomes to avoid detection by the body's immune system, specifically, the cells of reticuloendothelial system (RES). These liposomes are known as "stealth liposomes", and are constructed with PEG (Polyethylene Glycol) studding the outside of the membrane. The PEG coating, which is inert in the body, allows for longer circulatory life for the drug delivery mechanism.
However, research currently seeks to investigate at what amount of PEG coating the PEG actually hinders binding of the liposome to the delivery site. In addition to a PEG coating, most stealth liposomes also have some sort of biological species attached as a ligand to the liposome in order to enable binding via a specific expression on the targeted drug delivery site. These targeting ligands could be monoclonal antibodies (making an immunoliposome), vitamins, or specific antigens.
Targeted liposomes can target nearly any cell type in the body and deliver drugs that would naturally be systemically delivered. Naturally toxic drugs can be much less toxic if delivered only to diseased tissues. Polymersomes, morphologically related to liposomes can also be used this way.''
''Lipofection (or liposome transfection) is a technique used to inject genetic material into a cell by means of liposomes, which are vesicles that can easily merge with the cell membrane since they are both made of a phospholipid bilayer. Lipofection is a lipid-based transfection technology which belongs to biochemical methods including also polymers, DEAE dextran and calcium phosphate. The main advantages of lipofection are its high efficiency, its ability to transfect all types of nucleic acids in a wide range of cell types, its ease of use, reproducibility and low toxicity. In addition this method is suitable for all transfection applications (transient, stable, co-transfection, reverse, sequential or multiple transfections…), high throughput screening assay and has also shown good efficiency in some in vivo models.''
'Buckysome' is a combination name for 'buckyballs' and liposomes or aka as Carbon Nanotube
We saw earlier that our Morgellons micelle or lipocytes are special, in that they start as empty carbon cells or fullerenes inside the fungus... this technology of fullerene into the lipocyte or micelle should lead us close to what we initially came into contact with:
If we do a patent search on 1. fullerenes into lipocytes or 2. fullerenes into lipid vesicles... we get:
Incorporation of fullerenes into lipid vesicles has been studied.
Described herein are pharmaceutically acceptable compositions comprising fullerene molecules dispersed in vesicles comprising phosphatidylcholine (PC) phospholipid molecules and non-PC phospholipid molecules suspended in aqueous solution. In preferred embodiments, the phospholipid molecules are substantially uniformly organized into vesicles composed of one or more lipid bilayers and the fullerene molecules are substantially uniformly distributed within the lipid bilayers of the vesicles. Methods of forming these fullerene containing liposomes are also described. Such fullerene containing liposomes provide carriers for delivery of fullerenes for cosmetic, therapeutic, and imaging applications among other uses.''
''These crystalline particles are a form of carbon atom whose molecular architecture is arranged in a soccer ball-like structure. Also known as buckyballs, they were discovered in 1985 among the detritus of laser-vaporized graphite. Unlike other molecules that have applications as cancer drug delivery vehicles, fullerenes don't break down in the body and are excreted intact.''
''Use of buckysome or carbon nanotube for drug delivery
12. The amphifullerene liposome of claim 10, wherein the therapeutic agent is a diagnostic molecule selected from an MRI contrast agent, a CT contrast agent, an X-ray contrast agent, a nucleoscan contrast agent, an agent with at least one UV/visible absorption peak, or an ultrasonic contrast agent.
There are 498 patents on fullerenes into liposomes, we will get it narrowed down:
** I wonder how many of us had a diagnostic test done in which contrast dyes were used? I had my kidneys looked at prior to symptoms... and I remember them asking if I was allergic to shell fish? Don't know if this has anything to do with our condition or not, but have noticed that this question was omitted on our questionnaires.
I studied the transhumanists yesterday and saw that so many of them are younger people with good health, I wonder how many of them have experienced a Morgellons 'body takeover' with every cell of your body being altered, that you can feel happening and you are terrified into sleeplessness for months, with 'stuff' pouring out of your head causing lesions to form where it lands, with no one able to help you and with little to nothing you can do to help yourself?
The amphiphilic fullerene monomer (AF-1) consists of a "buckyball" cage to which a Newkome-like dendrimer unit and five lipophilic C12 chains positioned octahedrally to the dendrimer unit are attached.
In this study, we report a novel fullerene-based liposome termed 'buckysome' that is water soluble and forms stable spherical nanometer sized vesicles.
Nanotherapeutics has become an increasingly important field of research, along with the design and development of novel multifunctional carrier vectors such as nanoparticles, lipoproteins, micelles, dendrimers, nanoshells, functionalized nanotubes and polymeric microspheres.
Over the past 25 years, conventional phospholipid-based liposomes have been utilized for a variety of biomedical applications ranging from targeted drug delivery, diagnostic imaging, gene therapy to biosensors.
Structural dynamics of the bilayers that constitute liposomal vesicles has been well studied and today, a number of commercially available liposomes are readily used in healthcare applications.
in recent years, many other functional artificial nanostructures such as polymeric micelles have been synthesized that offer an alternative choice to phospholipid based liposomes.
Carbon-based nanoparticles such as functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and modified C60 fullerenes have been the subject of great interest in the last decade because of their potential use in materials, electronics, and, most recently, biological systems.
Water insoluble fullerene lipid membranes have been designed and well characterized by other groups.
These amphifullerene nanostructures, based on a C60 core, contain both hydrophobic and hydrophilic moieties and self-assemble to form spherical vesicles referred to as "buckysomes".
The fullerene core along with the attached moieties determine the self-assembly process that leads to the formation of different nanostructures.
Fullerenes functionalized with different ionic groups have been shown to form aggregates, extended nanotubes, spheres, and vesicles.
''Some skin creams use nano particles but many are now concerned about the use of the technology in foods
A breed of Frankenfood is being introduced into human diet and cosmetics with potentially disastrous consequences, experts said last night.
Academics, consumer groups and Government officials are warning that the arrival of nanotechnology threatens dangerous changes to the body and the environment.
The particles it uses are so small - 80,000 times thinner than a human hair - that they can pass through membranes protecting the brain or babies in the womb.
Nano health supplements, such as antioxidants, are already on the market while the first of hundreds of new foods are expected to arrive in the next 12 months.
However, the products are being introdeduced without any regulation or independent assessment to ensure they are safe - mirroring the controversy over the launch of GM foods ten years ago.
Some critics have talked of the threat of the creation of a "grey goo" of tiny particles with hidden harmful properties.
Prince Charles has said it would be "surprising" if the technology did not "offer similar upsets" to thalidomide - the morning sickness drug that caused children to be born with deformed limbs.
Professor Vicki Stone, Professor of Toxicology at Napier University in Edinburgh, is concerned about unforeseen side effects.
"We know very little about the ability of nanoparticles to move around the body, to accumulate or to be excreted, or their potential to cause toxic effects in organs," she said.
However, nanotech advocates have remarkable claims for the technology. For example, foods are in development that are said to stave off the aging process.
The consumer group Which? is about to launch a nanotech campaign arguing that consumers need to be consulted on the risks and benefits before it is too late.
The food and farming department Defra has published an independent report which admits there are serious gaps in safety data.
It warns: "There could be very significant implications for business and the wider community if potential risks are not identified and managed before any harm to the environment or human health may be done."
The report - Characterising the Risks Posed by Engineered Nanoparticles - states there is a shortage of research money.
It says the resulting absence of basic information about the particles means "it will be difficult or impossible to develop any general understanding of nanoparticle toxicology".
The report adds: "Transfer across biological barriers - e.g. to the brain or foetus - should be studied. Research into how long these tiny particles persist in the body is urgently needed."
It warns that work assessing human toxicology is being hamstrung by "profound difficulties in accessing relevant funding for these longer term projects".
Research by Which? found six out of ten people (61 per cent) have never heard of nanotechnology.
Sue Davies of Which? said: "The benefits that nanotechnologies can offer consumers are really exciting.
'But before the market is flooded with products, it's crucial the Government addresses the lack of scientific understanding about how some nanoparticles behave."
The European Food Safety Authority last year held a conference on the future of food.
Dr Donald Bruce, an expert on food and ethics, told delegates that the arrival of nanotech foods has many similarities with GM products.
US corporations attempted to introduce GM before an effective safety regime could be established.
"One of the things to ask is do we need the benefits claimed by the producers?' he said. 'Also there is the underlying notion that we are tampering with nature."
Environment minister Phil Woolas admitted there were gaps in knowledge, but denied the Government was failing to provide enough research cash.
Tiny particles that have generated great hopes and growing concerns
Nanotechnology involves using a substance in particles that are so small that the substance takes on new properties.
The name of the technology comes from the size of the particles - one nanometre in diameter - a millionth of a millimetre. Reduced to this size, materials can suddenly show very different and unexpected properties.
For example, an opaque substance such as copper becomes transparent, or an inert metal such as platinum becomes a catalyst and triggers chemical reactions.
Advocates argue that such particles can be organised to work together to deliver specific effects in a piece of equipment or in the human body.
They can be used to build miniature hard drives that have an immense memory, so allowing further miniaturisation and sophistication of products such as computers and mobile phones.
Washing machines have been developed that release silver nanoparticles that will kill bacteria in dirty washing.
Sun creams have been created so they become transparent rather than chalky white.
In medicine, it is claimed that nanotechnology will allow the creation of drugs that reach and treat a problem quickly.
Manufacturers are working on nanotech foods and supplements that are also designed to deliver specific health benefits.
Similarly, firms are working on developing anti-ageing foods, where nanotech particles associated with renewing the skin from the inside could be included in everyday products such as yoghurt, spreads or breakfast cereals.
The technology promises huge riches for firms which develop winning applications.
One of the first group of nanoparticles being utilised are fullerenes - tiny hollow carbon balls and tubes. They are very heat resistant, strong and conduct electricity.
The football-shaped C60 fullerene is being used in some anti-ageing products. The creams are said to reduce fine lines and firm the skin.
C60 has some antioxidant properties in that it kills the rogue chemicals which damage cells. However, a high dose can itself damage cells.
Some nano particles are known to mimic the harmful effects of asbestos on the lungs. Consequently, they have the potential to trigger lung cancer if inhaled.''
I had a lot of hands-on contact with Xerox toner ink right before I got sick. How many of us had the same skin contact or liquid ink by Xerox? How about a Hepatitis or tetanus vaccine?

According to my previous research on Amyloid fibrils I was thinking about this unknown protein Carnicom mentioned. I have found that a yeast called Saccharomyces cerevisiae promotes actin development which is a protein involved in the production of Amyloids.
I found interesting that two proteins Sup35 and Hsp104 of this specific yeast has the ability to 'create' an overproduction of Amyloids in humans causing diseases such as Alzheimer's for example.
If you look at the picture Kammy posted above the Amyloids do look similar to Morgellons fibers. I personally believe that the Morgellons fibers are a body waste product resulting from this mentioned overproduction of Amyloids. Researchers Discover Protein That Dissolves Amyloid Fibers
The finding follows years of study that has focused on a yeast protein called Sup35, a protein that helps cells translate genetic information into strings of amino acids – the building blocks of protein molecules. Sometimes Sup35 suddenly forms amyloid fibers similar to those found in Alzheimer's patients. In yeast, however, this doesn't kill the cell. Rather, it is part of the cell's normal biology, changing the types of proteins that the cell makes.
Previous research in the Lindquist lab described how a protein called Hsp104 seemed to affect Sup35's ability to form amyloid fibers. When a yeast cell contained either high amounts of Hsp104 or none at all, amyloid fibers never formed. But when Hsp104 levels were small, the fibers flourished.
In this new study, Lindquist and postdoctoral researcher James Shorter isolated Sup35 and Hsp104. Here they saw that small amounts of Hsp104 catalyzed the formation of amyloid fibers, but large levels of the protein actually caused the fibers to dissolve.
Prions, those infectious proteins implicated in conditions such as mad cow disease, are a subclass of amyloids. In yeast cells, Sup35 technically is a prion.
Hsp104 belongs to a class of proteins that sometimes are influenced by environmental factors.
A yeast cell in one type of environment can experience an abundance of Hsp104, which would then keep Sup35 from forming amyloid fibers in that cell. But put that cell in a different environment and the result may be a more moderate level of Hsp104 that would, in turn, create amyloid fibers in Sup35, changing how that protein functions and ultimately altering the cell's biology.
It is believed that it was originally isolated from the skins of grapes (one can see the yeast as a component of the thin white film on the skins of some dark-colored fruits such as plums; it exists among the waxes of the cuticle). It is one of the most intensively studied eukaryotic model organisms in molecular and cell biology, much like Escherichia coli as the model prokaryote. It is the microorganism behind the most common type of fermentation.
Saccharomyces" derives from Latinized Greek and means "sugar mold" or "sugar fungus", saccharo- being the combining form "sugar-" and myces being "fungus", Killer yeasts
Killer yeasts are yeasts, such as Saccharomyces cerevisiae, which carry a double-stranded RNA virus causing them to secrete a number of toxic proteins which are lethal to receptive cells.
These yeast cells are immune to the toxic effects of the protein due to an intrinsic immunity,
The virus, L-A, is an icosahedral virus of S. cerevisiae comprising a 4.6 kb genomic segment and several satellite double-stranded RNA sequences, called M dsRNAs. The genomic segment encodes for the viral coat protein and a protein which replicates the viral genomes. The M dsRNAs encode the toxin, of which there are at least three variants in S. cerevisiae,
The two most studied variant toxins in S. cerevisiae are K1 and K28.
K1 binds to the β-1,6-D-glucan receptor on the target cell wall, moves inside, and then binds to the plasma membrane receptor Kre1p.
It forms a cation-selective ion channel in the membrane, which is lethal to the cell.
K28 uses the α-1,6-mannoprotein receptor to enter the cell, and utilizes the secretory pathway in reverse by displaying the endoplasmic reticulum HDEL signal.
From the ER, K28 moves into the cytoplasm and shuts down DNA synthesis in the nucleus, triggering apoptosis.
Young and Yagiu (1978) experimented with methods of curing killer yeasts.
They found that using a cycloheximine solution at 0.05 ppm was effective in eliminating killer activity in one strain of S. cerevisiae.
Incubating the yeast at 37°C eliminated activity in another strain.
Many toxins are sensitive to pH levels; for example K1 is permanently inactivated at pH levels over 6.5.
So, which way are we going? Micelles, liposomes, amyloid fibers, prions, fullerenes...? Sometimes, this happens in research... one discovery leads to others and the researcher should eventually sort through all the information to arrive at the truth, just bear with us while we sort. Anyone, feel free to grab onto any of these or related subjects that you feel might shed some light on what we are looking for...
What are we looking for? We are looking to find the unidentified, white, fuzzy 'fungus' that Carnicom is calling Chlamydia-like. We have a sphere that is a very central player that's identity is unsure... and which carbon ball is at work here, micelles or lipsomes?... we've corralled all of the critters up into a pen and now we're examining them... just not in any logical order, we are jumping on the first one that rides by.
How I came to my latest conclusions: I am studying this sup35 fiber and seeing that it is being called a 'release factor', which is exactly the way I have described it. It is fungus-like (Chlamydia-like?)... it branches out and spreads to form the carbon capsids.
''Fungal prions provide an excellent model for the understanding of disease-forming mammalian prions. Fungal prions are naturally occurring proteins that can undergo a structural conversion that becomes self-propagating and infectious. They represent an epigenetic phenomenon in which information is not encoded in the nuclear DNA, but is structurally encoded within the protein. Several prion-forming proteins have been identified in fungi, primarily in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Some of these are not associated with any disease state and may possibly have a beneficial role by giving an evolutionary advantage to their host.
Podospora anserina is a filamentous fungus. Genetically compatible colonies of this fungus can merge together and share cellular contents such as nutrients and cytoplasm. A natural system of protective "incompatibility" proteins exists to prevent promiscuous sharing between unrelated colonies. One such protein, called HET-S, adopts a prion-like form in order to function properly.''
So, I decide to look at Podospora anserina...
Doing an image search first to see if I see anything that resembles known samples, I see:
Saccharomyces cerevisiae virus L-A is a double-stranded RNA (dsRNA) virus of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
This virus has a single 4.6 kb genomic segment that encodes its major coat protein, Gag (76 kDa) and a Gag-Pol fusion protein (180 kDa) formed by a -1 ribosomal frameshift.
L-A can support the replication and encapsidation in separate viral particles of any of several satellite dsRNAs, called M dsRNAs, each of which encodes a secreted protein toxin (the killer toxin) and immunity to that toxin.
L-A and M are transmitted from cell to cell by the cytoplasmic mixing that occurs in the process of mating.
Neither is naturally released from the cell or enters cells by other mechanisms, but the high frequency of yeast mating in nature results in the wide distribution of these viruses in natural isolates.
Moreover, the structural and functional similarities with dsRNA viruses of mammals has made it useful to consider these entities as viruses.
The double-stranded (ds)RNA viruses represent a diverse group of viruses that vary widely in host range (humans, animals, plants, fungi, and bacteria), genome segment number (one to twelve), and virion organization (T-number, capsid layers, or turrets). Members of this group include the rotaviruses, renowned globally as the commonest cause of gastroenteritis in young children, and bluetongue virus, an economically important pathogen of cattle and sheep. In recent years, remarkable progress has been made in determining, at atomic and subnanometeric levels, the structures of a number of key viral proteins and of the virion capsids of several dsRNA viruses, highlighting the significant parallels in the structure and replicative processes of many of these viruses.
ChasSansc2: What does this all mean? I would suggest that anyone who has Morgellon to add 1 cup of LEMON JUICE to every load of laundry they do, start drinking lemon water and maybe even start taking baths with at least 2 cups of LEMON JUICE in it.

ChasSansc2: I used straight LEMON JUICE on my body, as well as Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar. A word of caution, LEMON JUICE on the face can feel like Mace (it burns), so, you may want to dilute it before applying the LEMON JUICE soaked wash cloth.

Pipster: I've had success w/antifungal remedies...after trying others. The bugs might be fungus drawing them in? GMO's are made with a fungus that bonds the DNA of one species to another. Mild fungal & parasitic infections worsen w/EMF waves...weaken immune system.
