Entomopoxvirus-Baculovirus Cause of Morgellons Disease

This entry is about the Entomovirus, an insect virus, which is strongly related to the Baculovirus (granulovirus).

For further information on Baculovirus, I kindly suggest to also visit my partner’s site at: http://morgellons1.wordpress.com/

Both are insect viruses in army worms for example and cause a so called ‘double infection’.

Here is an image of  the virion Entomopox:

A very ill Morgellons Sufferer has reported to find specimens in stool which resemble those in the upper picture, mainly upper right.

I have researched that this specific EV, the Baculovirus and the mentioned Luciferin are part of an invention of the U. S. Department of Agriculture and National Institute of Health.

Later on I will show a novel protein which has the ability to create fibers so called fibrils.

I will start with excerpts of this invention:

DESCRIPTION MATERIALS AND METHODS FOR DELIVERY AND EXPRESSION OF HETEROLOGOUS DNA IN VERTEBRATE CELLS The subject invention was made with government support under a research project supported by U. S. Department of Agriculture Grant No. 97-35302-4431 and National Institute of Health Grant No. P50-HL59412-01. The government has certain rights in this invention.

Background of the Invention Gene therapy is a powerful concept just now beginning to see applications designed to treat human diseases such as genetic disorders and cancer. The introduction of genes into an organism can be achieved in a variety of ways, including virus-based vectors. Viral gene therapy vectors can either be designed to deliver and express genes permanently (stable integration of a foreign gene into host chromosome) or transiently (for a finite period of time).

Current virus-based gene transfer vectors are typically derived from animal viruses, such as retroviruses, herpesviruses, adenoviruses, or adeno-associated viruses. Generally, these viruses are engineered to remove one or more genes of the virus. These genes may be removed because they are involved in viral replication and/or to provide the capacity for insertion and packaging of foreign genes. Each of these known vectors has some unique advantages as well as disadvantages.

Until recently, complex insect viruses (entomoviruses) had not been considered for use as possible viral gene therapy vectors. In the past, studies of entomoviruses have mainly concentrated on their use as biopesticides, expression systems or taxonomic novelties to compare to their mammalian virus counterparts.
