For the better part of a year, intermittent reports from embalmers have surfaced in the media, usually along with photographs of long white fibrous “clots” that have been pulled from corpses during the embalming process. A somewhat sensational film called “Died Suddenly” features interviews with a number of these embalmers. For their part, the embalmers appear to be a decidedly stolid bunch, who are genuinely puzzled by these clots - as well as inconvenienced, as it apparently makes the work of blood replacement with embalming fluid much more difficult.
Thus far, there has been no molecular analysis of these clots to my knowledge. Nor to my knowledge has anything been reported regarding abnormal clots being removed from patients in intensive care units.
Pretorius et al (2021) reported on microclots in covid patients. Grobbelaar (2021) observed that the addition of spike protein to healthy blood caused marked amyloid/clot formation. Kell (2022) describes fibrin microclots and fibrin amyloid (essentially a harmful protein polymer) as potential agents in “long covid.” This paper has already been cited over 50 times, despite having been published 9 months ago, and on a relatively obscure topic. Among these is Nystrom et al, published in May 2022. They explore the amyloid potential of spike protein in vitro. Nystrom has been viewed over 40 thousand times as of the end of November, indicating a lively interest in this topic.
In other words, there is a healthy literature on the subject of covid and amyloid formation, and on covid and abnormal clotting.
What appears to be lacking however is literature on covid vaccines and amyloid formation. If the embalmers’ observations are correct, we would expect to find cases of strange clots in still-living patients, or else in autopsies after mRNA vaccine deaths.
Kim (2022) reports on an intra-cardiac clot that is very resistant to anticoagulants. The patient sustained both covid and mRNA vaccination, and the clot was not removed for examination. Krongold (2022) reports on thrombectomy of a massive DVT post mRNA vaccination, however, there is no comment on the appearance of the clot itself. Tajstra (2021) reports on fatal coronary thrombus soon after mRNA vaccination - again, there is no comment on the clot itself. Zhang (2021) reports on three autopsies in post-mRNA vaccine deaths. In none of the cases are large clots mentioned. Kaimori (2022) reports on widespread bloot clots in a post mRNA vaccine autopsy; however, they are microscopic. Roncati (2022) reports on 3 autopsies, all with microclots but none of the massive clots observed by embalmers.
Finally, what is one to conclude about the embalmers’ clots?
