Morgellons Research Project Status Report

August 24, 2014

The Carnicom Institute is continuing with its study of the Morgellons condition. The project will start with a questionnaire process, and this is being developed at this time. Subsequent developments of data collection and/or clinical studies may develop in the future depending upon support and resources.

Carnicom Institute has recently been granted approval for an Institutional Review Board (IRB) by the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP), under the auspices of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).  The IRB process recognizes the role and importance that ethics assume within any research that involves human subjects.  The IRB allows for an independent review and evaluation of any research projects that involve human subjects.  This milestone represents a significant accomplishment in the scope, extent and methods of health related research projects that will fall into consideration by Carnicom Institute.   The IRB achievement has required a considerable investment of time, energy, and discussion over the past year by a core group of CI staff and consultants to strengthen the professional support, network, standards, and credibility of work that CI shall conduct and associate with in the future.  The ability to consider research proposals submitted by professionals outside CI is an additional benefit of the IRB, and such proposals are in process at this time. The foundation for networking and recognition of research is greatly enhanced with the IRB process that is now in place.

This study will be conducted in an anonymous and confidential manner for research purposes only. There will be no medical diagnosis or individual interpretation(s) given. The research project is intended for scientific purposes and the knowledge obtained will be for the public benefit.
