Implant Report

Analysis of Possible Implant
October 10, 1996

In the fall of 1990 an "abductee" with whom Harvard psychiatrist Dr. John Mack (Director of PEER) had been working expelled a small wire-like object that had worked its way down from high in her nasal sinus cavity into her throat. The woman who was referred to as "Anne" in Dr. Mack's subsequently published book "Abduction", had felt pain behind her forehead prior to movement down of the object. The specimen was a "tough", pinkish-colored, 1 - inch long,kinky, wire-like object. A pathologist, "Dr. K." found it to be about 20 - 30 microns in thickness, and it could be stretched out more than 3 inches. It was reported to have a gelatinous sheath with bumpy outcroppings; it was clearly not a hair. A radiologist found it to be radiolucent - not metallic. Neither the pathologist nor the radiologist was able to identify the object.

A piece of the object was sent for analysis by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Using the SEM for energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS) showed the specimen to consist primarily of carbon and oxygen, with carbon being the dominant element. This was the case for measurements made outside as well as inside the specimen (See Figure 1); measurements at several locations on the outside surface also showed the presence of small amounts of a complex mixture of elements consisting of those characteristic of tissue and contaminating substances(e.g. sulfur, chlorine, silicon, aluminum, etc.)

Using a sharp scalpel the fiber was sliced into two segments and coated with a gold film to enhance imaging with the SEM . Figure 2 shows the two separated segments; the distal ends are attached (glued) to the support stub, while the cut ends are extended (facing each other) above the stub. The three-lobed nature of the wire-like fiber is readily evident in Figure 2, Figure 3 and Figure 4. A higher magnification of the surface is seen in Figure 5. Here the presence of a film surrounding the specimen is evident, and there are attached cell-like structures some of which have an appearance and size consistent with that of red blood cells. The most interesting features of the specimen are represented in the cross-sections seen in Figure 6, Figure 7 and Figure 8, where a series of thin layers only a few microns thick are organized in an irregular manner. Figure 7 is a higher magnification view of the cross section of Figure 6; here some of the layers have a braided-like appearance.

A piece of the object was analyzed for its 13C/12C carbon isotope ratio by Krueger Enterprises, Inc. (Cambridge, Ma.). The ratio was found to be 0.01092 which is only slightly lower (1.496) than the value listed in the Merck index for terrestrial carbon which is 0.01108.

Conclusions: The specimen appears to be an organic, plastic-like, three-lobed fiber with an internal structure organized into intricate layers in a seemingly irregular manner. Its identity, function, and purpose remain unknown at this time.
