NPR Morgellons

This NPR piece just tells the  story of Morgellons:

It’s reasonably well done.  Of interest is that the CDC expects their investigation to “take six months and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars”.  Which means you probably won’t be hearing anything from the CDC until sometime late 2007.

Still, it looks like the medical profession is forging ahead – again in the story is a mention of simply taking the name “Morgellons” and making it synonymous with Delusions of Parasitosis.   Overall, I feel the discussions surrounding Morgellons will eventually lead to the development of better ways of treating people with DOP, as well as some investigation into various physical triggers for DOP/Morgellons.
