CSL Pandemic Swine Flu Vaccine Safety in Question

ISIS Report 21/09/09

New vaccine formulation contains thimerosal and beta- propiolactone a potent cancer causing chemical Prof. Joe Cummins

Pharmaceutical companies worldwide are rushing to produce their vaccines against the current swine flu pandemic to fulfill the needs of the entire global community, no doubt taking advantage of fast-track approval and immunity from prosecution if serious side effects should come to light [1] (Fast-tracked Swine Flu Vaccine under Fire, SiS 43) as already found in clinical trials of a live attenuated flu vaccine on children [2] Live Attenuated Swine Influenza Vaccine for Children Safety in Question, SiS 44).

Now another serious candidate vaccine has appeared. It is produced by an Australian based company CSL Biotherapies. The CSL global seasonal influenza vaccine AFLURIA® is prepared from influenza virus propagated in the fluid of embryos in chicken eggs. Following harvest, the virus is purified in a sucrose density gradient using a continuous flow zonal centrifuge. The purified virus is inactivated with betapropiolactone, and the virus particles are disrupted with the detergent sodium taurodeoxycholate to produce a ‘split virion’. The single-dose formulation is preservative-free; and thimerosal, a mercury derivative, is not used in the manufacturing process for this formulation. The multi-dose formulation, however, contains thimerosal, as a preservative; each 0.5 mL dose contains 24.5 mcg of mercury [3]. The pandemic H1N1 vaccine has been prepared in the same way as the seasonal vaccine. However, CSL also licensed reverse genetic technology (see [2]) from Medimmune company and has indicated that some vaccine may be produced using that method [4].

Inactivation of the virus using beta-propiolactone is a common practice in virus inactivation for vaccines. However, there is some concern about the use of beta propiolactone because it is a potent cancer causing chemical [5]. Beta propiolactone is a direct threat to laboratory workers preparing vaccine. The chemical forms carboxy ethyl adducts on the nucleic acid bases guanine [6] and cytosine [7]. Such modified nucleic acid bases may interfere with the host cell nucleic acid synthesis and/or be incorporated into the DNA of the host cells causing mutations. Cancer incidence has not been studied among those preparing vaccine, nor in those vaccinated using beta propiolactone inactivated viruses.

Obama's Presidency Isn't Too Big to Fail

Why Haven't Any Wall Street Tycoons Been Sent to the Slammer?

Kevin G. Hall, McClatchy Newspapers: "More than a year into the gravest financial crisis since the Great Depression, millions of Americans have seen their home values and retirement savings plunge and their jobs evaporate. What they haven't seen are any Wall Street tycoons forced to swap their multi-million dollar jobs and custom-made suits for dishwashing and prison stripes. There are plenty of civil and class-action lawsuits from aggrieved investors angered by the losses in their mortgage bonds, hedge funds or pensions. Regulators have stepped up their vigilance after the fact. But to date, no captain of finance tied to the crisis has walked the plank."


Obama's Presidency Isn't Too Big to Fail

Robert Scheer, Truthout: "A president has only so much capital to expend, both in tax dollars and public tolerance, and Barack Obama is dangerously overdrawn. He has tried to have it all on three fronts, and his administration is in serious danger of going bankrupt. He has blundered into a deepening quagmire in Afghanistan, has continued the Bush policy of buying off Wall Street hustlers instead of confronting them and is now on the cusp of bargaining away the so-called public option, the reform component of his health care program."


The Economy Is A Lie, Too

By Paul Craig Roberts

Americans cannot get any truth out of their government about anything, the economy included. Americans are being driven into the ground economically, with one million school children now homeless, while Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke announces that the recession is over.


Globalization Goes Bankrupt

By Chris Hedges

The rage of the disposed is fracturing the country, dividing it into camps that are unmoored from the political mainstream. Movements are building on the ends of the political spectrum that have lost faith in the mechanisms of democratic change. You can't blame them. But unless we on the left move quickly this rage will be captured by a virulent and racist right wing, one that seeks a disturbing proto-fascism.

Will Americans Obey Government Orders During a Swine Flu Pandemic?

Local authorities are keen to know whether American citizens will obey the government in the event of an H1N1 pandemic and take the swine flu vaccine, amidst growing fears of quarantines and forced injections that have been circulating in recent weeks.

McChrystal: More Forces or 'Mission Failure'

By Bob Woodward

The top U.S. and NATO commander in Afghanistan warns in an urgent, confidential assessment of the war that he needs more forces within the next year and bluntly states that without them, the eight-year conflict "will likely result in failure," according to a copy of the 66-page document obtained by The Washington Post.


America Has Been Here Before

By Eric Margolis

American and NATO generals running the Afghan war amazingly warn they risk being beaten by Taliban tribesmen in spite of their 107,000 soldiers, B-1 heavy bombers, F-15s, F-16s, F-18s, Apache and AC-130 gunships, heavy artillery, tanks, radars, killer drones, cluster bombs, white phosphorus, rockets, and space surveillance.


Afghan Election Scam a Terrifying Tragedy

By Matt McCarten

I've been watching an immoral and farcical tragedy unfold in Afghanistan in the past fortnight, with a sense of despair. The world is pretending that, despite a few hiccups, the Afghan people have had the pleasure of electing a democratic government to govern them. - What delusional nonsense. We are part of a criminal con job and the sooner we admit it, the better.

Obama wants to extend Patriot Act, just like Bush

Competitive Enterprise Institute
by Ryan Young


People are often surprised to hear how similar President Obama’s policies are to President Bush’s. They shouldn’t be. One may be a Republican and the other a Democrat, but make no mistake, Bush and Obama are two peas in a pod: Bush signed a $700 billion bank bailout bill. Obama continued the policy. And he extended it to other sectors, such as the automobile industry. Bush tried fiscal stimulus twice while in power. With some help from the Bush team, Obama oversaw the largest fiscal stimulus bill in history. There is occasional talk of another...

So where’s the prospectus?

by Michael S. Rozeff


Why is it companies are forced to supply a prospectus, but the government isn’t? If I am to pay for this war, then I insist on acting like an investor in ‘Afghanistan.’ If the government wants my support, then let them issue a prospectus and let me decide on the merits or demerits of this project. Let me assess the risks, and let me see in writing what the returns are supposed to be. Let me see what this business of state-building is supposed to be about. I’d like to understand why we are in Afghanistan. What is it supposed to accomplish? How much will it cost? What is the strategy of the management? That’s just for starters. I’d like to be able to control how much of my money goes into this investment. I’d even like to be able to sue the promoters for fraud if they make material misstatements or misrepresentations of facts...
