Corruption

Corruption in vaccines, medicine, and science: — The Anatomy of Research Scandals. 2017. “For the past two years, I have taught a seminar on medical research scandals. The syllabus looks like a highlight reel of exploitation and abuse: children fed plutonium-laced breakfast cereal, prisoners dosed with the active ingredient in Agent Orange, mental patients given […]

Failure

Vaccine failure and vaccine-induced infection: Note: Also see the category shedding — Acute flaccid paralysis surveillance indicators in the Democratic Republic of Congo during 2008-2014. “Of the 13,749 AFP cases investigated, 58.9% received at least three doses of oral polio vaccine (OPV), 7.3% never received OPV, while the status of 18.3% was unknown.” #Polio #Paralysis […]

Rotavirus

Adventitious agents in viral vaccines: Lessons learned from 4 case studies “The four cases are: a) SV40 in polio vaccines; b) bacteriophage in measles and polio vaccines; c) reverse transcriptase in measles and mumps vaccines; and d) porcine circovirus and porcine circovirus DNA sequences in rotavirus vaccines.” #Contamination #SV40 #Polio #Vaccine #MedScienceResearch #Rotavirus #Measles #MMR […]

Rabies

🛑 Adverse effect versus quality control of the Fuenzalida-Palacios antirabies vaccine. “We evaluated the components of the Fuenzalida-Palacios antirabies vaccine, which is till used in most developing countries in human immunization for treatment and prophylaxis. This vaccine is prepared from newborn mouse brains at 1% concentration. Even though the vaccine is considered to have a […]

Behavioral abnormalities in female mice following administration of aluminum adjuvants and the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil. #Gardasil #HPV #Depression #Autoimmunity #Neurological #Vaccine #MedScienceResearch https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/27421722/ — An evaluation of the effects of thimerosal on neurodevelopmental disorders reported following DTP and Hib vaccines in comparison to DTPH vaccine in the United States. “Significantly increased odds ratios […]

Rhogam

🛑 Clinical Outcomes after Hepatitis C Infection from Contaminated Anti-D Immune Globulin “Twelve batches, constituting 4062 vials, of contaminated or potentially contaminated anti-D immune globulin were in circulation in 1977 through 1979 (the batches had an expiration date of mid-1979).” #Rhogam #Contamination #Error #Vaccine #MedScienceResearch http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJM199909023411013 — Doctors to face disciplinary action over Irish hepatitis […]

Rubella

Anaphylaxis following single component measles and rubella immunisation. “Anaphylaxis as an adverse event following immunisation (AEFI) is a rare occurrence. We report four cases of anaphylaxis following administration of single component measles or rubella vaccine between January 2003 and June 2007. We estimate that the incidence of anaphylaxis to measles and rubella single component vaccines […]

Smallpox

Accidental vaccinia of the vulva. “Vaccinia of the vulva in a 32-year-old married woman is described. The vaccination was apparently due to a heteroinoculation from her husband during sexual contact. Clinically it presented as an indurated ulcer with a few isolated umbilicated vesicles and was associated with an acute biological false-positive serological reactions.” #Shedding #Smallpox […]

Molecular Mimicry

Acquired autoimmunity after viral vaccination is caused by molecular mimicry and antigen complimentarity in the presence of an immunologic adjuvant and specific HLA patterns. #Autoimmunity #HLA #Molecular #Mimicry #Vaccine #MedScienceResearch https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/17630224/ — Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis Following Immunization with Human Papillomavirus Vaccines. #Gardasil #Neurological #ADEM #Encephalomyelitis #HPV #Molecular #Mimicry #Vaccine #MedScienceResearch https://www.jstage.jst.go.jp/article/internalmedicine/55/21/55_55.7217/_article — 🛑 Adverse effect […]

Multiple Sclerosis

Characteristics of pediatric multiple sclerosis: The Turkish pediatric multiple sclerosis database. (2017) “The earlier-onset group had a higher rate of infection/vaccination preceding initial attack, initial diagnosis of ADEM, longer interval between first 2 attacks, and more disability accumulating in the first 3 years of the disease.” Copyright © 2017 European Paediatric Neurology Society.
