Premature Babies Used As Lab Rats In Manipulated Vaccine Trials

Pharmaceutical companies treat premature babies like lab rats in vaccine trials.

While reading the results of a vaccination trial on premature babies funded by GlaxoSmithKline, I noticed something was not quite right.

The trial, whilst sickening in itself, was testing out the rotavirus vaccine on a group of 988 premature babies ranging between 27 weeks and 36 weeks.

The paper reporting the trial was published on the ‘Pediatric SuperSite’ and was entitled ‘Human rotavirus immunogenic, well-tolerated for preterm infants’ by Felix Omenaca MD. PhD, and colleagues (1) The paper stated the following:

“The researchers grouped preterm infants by ages — infants born at gestational ages 27 to 30 weeks and those born at 30 to 36 weeks. They administered rotavirus vaccine (RIX4414, GlaxoSmithKline) in two doses to 658 preterm infants, and 330 received a placebo along with routine vaccinations, including diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type B and poliovirus. Infants from France and Spain also received Streptococcus pneumoniae concomitantly; infants from Portugal and Spain also received Neisseria meningitides.

The researchers then asked parents/guardians to report adverse effects, and they noted no statistically significant difference in the reporting of severe adverse reactions in the vaccine or placebo group (5.1% and 6.2%, respectively). Unsolicited adverse effects, which included fever of more than 39.5·C, six or more bouts of diarrhea per day, three or more episodes of vomiting per day, appetite loss and irritability, were reported in 29.3% of preterm infants in the vaccine group and 40.7% in the placebo group. (own emphasis)

The problems I see are as follows:

  1. All the infants were given multiple vaccinations, therefore, there was no control group.
  2. Of a group of 988 children, approx 2/3 were given the vaccine for rotavirus and 1/3 were given the placebo, then the researchers compared the results like for like. This cannot be done because one group is significantly larger than the other.
  3. Because all of the infants received multiple vaccinations it is impossible to tell which vaccine if any caused the side effects.

I decided to examine the exact figures in greater detail.

The total of infants given all the vaccines including the rotavirus vaccine was 658 which equal 66.6% of the total number of babies being tested.

The total of infants given all the vaccines except the rotavirus vaccine was 330 which equal 33.3% of the total number of babies being tested.


Severe Reactions

In the group receiving the rotavirus vaccine 5.1% of the infants had a severe reaction; this was a total of 33 children.

In the group receiving the placebo 6.2% of the infants had a severe reaction; this was a total of 20 children.

Less Severe Reactions

Now let us look at what the researchers call ‘unsolicited adverse effects’.

The researchers say that these effects included fever of more than 39.5·C, six or more bouts of diarrhea per day, three or more episodes of vomiting per day, appetite loss and irritability.

In the group receiving the rotavirus vaccine 29.3% of the infants had an unsolicited adverse effect which is a total of 192 children.

In the group receiving the placebo 40.7% of the infants had an unsolicited adverse effect which is a total of 134 children

Presuming that the children in the severe group were different to the children in the unsolicited group, this means that a total of 225 children of the 688 who received all of the vaccines including the rotavirus vaccine had an adverse reaction.

(Figures checked on Google)

This amounts to a massive number of premature babies suffering from adverse reactions and yet despite this the researchers, reported that ‘because of the higher risk that human rotavirus poses to preterm infants, the study supports this vaccine’s use in those older than 27 weeks who are “medically stable at the time of or after discharge from the neonatal unit’.

These are the vaccination trials that we the public rely on to test our vaccinations before use. Does anyone at the WHO, the FDA or the CDC ever even look at these studies in detail or do they just read the concluding paragraph?

This study was flawed from the beginning due to the number of variables affecting the sample groups being tested. The researchers did disclose the age of the children and the other vaccines that could affect the results, however; they did not disclose any other conflicting variables. These variables may include cultural, social and economical backgrounds, weight and medical histories including any drugs that the babies were already being treated with.

Just by reading this study through anyone with an ounce of sense can see that it is weighted in favor of the researchers.

This was a trial on premature infants for goodness sake!

To use these small vulnerable babies as little more than lab rats is bad enough but to then falsify the results to get the vaccines sanctioned to give to all premature babies is positively criminal.

Not only that, but this was a trial of a GlaxoSmithKline product, funded by GlaxoSmithKline with the majority of the researchers researching the product actually having financial ties to GlaxoSmithKline. Unbelievable!!!!

The disclaimer at the end of the report read.

Disclosure: A number of researchers reported financial ties to GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, which funded the study”.

A couple of days ago I wrote an article about a prem baby from Belgium (2) who died after receiving a cocktail of vaccines including the rotavirus vaccine. Is it any wonder that this baby lost her life when parents have to rely on studies like this?

    Pharmaceutical companies use double speak all of the time. One of the concepts often used is the ‘Healthy User Bias’. It assumes those who get vaccinated are more ‘health concious’ and will live to be longer. Of course it takes other forms, too.

    In the paper below, it’s called the ‘Healthy Vaccine Effect’.

    Patterns of emergency room visits, admissions and death following recommended pediatric vaccinations – a population based study of 969,519 vaccination events.

    In reality, the way Pharma uses this in the vaccine trials and studies is utter bilge. It’s an excuse to harm children with their pharmaceutical drugs like they did in this study – all in the name of MediSIN.

    This is an atrocity!…..Right up there with the Nazi experiments! My heart breaks to think that   people so callously abused these tiny human beings. I doubt the parents of these infants ever gave any “informed” consent to these experiments. And all in the name of the g..d  d..mn dollar! Sickening!

    Crimes against humanity.  Preemies have a very difficult  start without being lab rats.  The last thing they need is toxic crap.  I hope the arrests start soon.  It’s been about 62 years since I was an infant lab rat who almost died and suffered.  Using preemies is absolutely heartless.  I can’t even express how horrified I am at these corporate “scientists” and their scumbag bosses and grantees.

  • Angela

    Parents who allow their children to be used as guinea pigs like this should be stripped of their parental rights!

  • AussieMum

    Are these parents being informed about the potential side-effects of these vaccines?

    If not, then why not?

  • AussieMum

    Angus,

    Good comment- keep Evan Harris’ name in the picture!

    I´m not sure I understand this. Seems so wrong and unfear and what about the science?
     I don´t even see anything looking like scinece, I see absolutely nothing

    You mean that all these underborn bebies when they still should ought to be in the womb, iow, they “aren´t really born yeat” still get their vaccinshots as if they were fullborn bebies?

    It´s true that they do think they can discriminate between anything, when they mix too many variables

    What´s the motivation to give these prematures vaccin at all? 

    How can they mix a noumber of prematures who, of course have many, many different reasons
    of being premature, without telling anything about the general health status of these small bebies. Did anyone check the vitamin-D-koncentration?  the gutflora? etc … are they all normally developed for their premature age…

    Well, nobody will ever be able to tell anything relevant about this study, or draw any conclusions, besides they all missed the moral in it.

    >>>but to then falsify the results to get the vaccines
    sanctioned to give to all premature babies is positively
    criminal.<<<

    So is misinterpreting what the study says. It does not say that ALL prem. babies will be given the vaccine. As you also noted, the article says:

    "Based on these recommendations, all medically stable, healthy pre-term infants may
    receive rotavirus vaccine at the chronologic age similar to full-term infants at the discretion of the medical practitioner"

    There were lots of conditions that excluded infants from the study. If you
    want vaccines to be studied prior to release on the general population,
    you have to have studies. On children. On babies. On adults.

    There ought to be laws against this very type of ‘science’ that takes place and which Christina has bravely documented.  However, this sort of medical scientific sleight of hand and smoke and mirrors research–along with trials–probably has been going on since forever because vaccine makers need to have ‘scientific’ research to support their products.

    In my opinion, the reason behind the problem of pseudo science in this case and others is:
    “… A number of researchers reported financial ties to GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, which funded the study”.  I truly believe no study should ever be considered valid when funded by the vaccine or pharmaceutical maker, if for no other reason than conflict of interest concerns. In other businesses/professions such as law, judges and lawyers recuse themselves so as not to appear to prejudice the outcome.  Shouldn’t that type of ethic and standard apply to the pharmaceutical industry? When will medicine and consumers wake up to the fact that they are ‘being taken for a ride’ about vaccine science?

    In addition to receiving many vaccines, the placebo for the vaccine being tested is never saline.
    In Mercks’ Rotavirus study the placebo was an “unspecified biologic”. WTF is that? sounds like the viral material from the original rotavirus vaccine that was know to cause bowel issues.

    You know what, for as long as I have studied the unbiased information on vaccines and that is a long time, there is just one more story around the corner that takes it to another new level of disgust for what goes on in their vaccine world. Its just confounding to me that there is that large a number of people that simply refuse to get it. As if the creator provided us for a human body, with nothing but ineffective junk? Then they create more and more vaccines to counter the organisms and pathogens that have mutated or become stronger because of vaccines. In the FDA VRBPAC pre-approval document for Gardasil, that as well was the one of two major issues noted in the clinical trials. Yet it was approved.

    Parents need to be provided with not only the typical vaccine propaganda and less than adequate written information; but also the inserts and each vaccines ingredients list. Then it needs to be as well considered what else might be in this vaccine? Is there any assurance of that there is no harmful DNA/RNA or viral contaminant in the vaccine from an animal or foreign source used in the vaccines manufacture? Ask, where are the safety studies on any of this? 

    “Oh, here’s a copy of some CDC funded epidemiological studies on thimerosal”??? ‘You heard that Wakefield was a fraud, right”? “Your an irresponsible parent to not vaccinate, as our vaccinated children will then as well get deadly diseases from you un-vaccinated child; without our savior, herd immunity.” Yet herd immunity failures have happened in fully vaccinated schools and populations. Then comes more fear mongering, about the failure to vaccinate, without and scientific data to back it. More recommendation of boosters,and even what is called cocoon style vaccination of the family, when all else has failed, such as in regard to pertussis. 

    There needs to be a major wake up call!

    This is just another reason we do not Vaccinate ourselves or our kids.

  • http://www.facebook.com/EvaBow007 Evgeniya Bowen

    Unfortunately,  It’s quite opposite:-( If you decide to not let them vaccinate your children you have to explain why in writing in details or you will be declared a neglecting parent! Sad, isn’t it? Even after my son had a reaction they would tell me – There is NO reason NOT to continue with immunization…..

    Another couple of points. This was a controlled study. The control was the placebo group, they all had the standard vaccines but the placebo didn’t get rotavirus. So yes, it does have a control group. Different group size is not a problem if there is enough power. There was. Yes, multiple vaccines will confound the issue. But if you have more of a certain reaction in the rotavirus group and not in the placebo, then maybe the vaccine is to blame.

    There are problems with insufficient information about confounding factors. The stats were very basic, but maybe that’s all that was required.

    It’s a bit rich saying results were falsified. You are saying that they deliberately changed or withheld data. I know this happens, but just because you dislike the study is not proof of fraud.

  • Unbelievable

    One thing that was not mentioned here is that by giving these vaccines to premature babies, rather than normal, full-term, healthy infants, they can blame any and all adverse reactions, such as death, autism, or anything else (immediate or future) on the complications of being premature, thereby directing attention completely away from the vaccinations.

  • http://twitter.com/VaccineRisks Vaccine Risks

    An excellent article describing yet one more shocking and heartrending clinical study.

    Pharmaceutical companies normally steer their own protocols and carry out trials in a way which produces results which are in their favour.  The FDA has responsibility for overseeing the trials, yet control is minimal. It is estimated that only one percent of all clinical trials were audited between 2000 and 2005.

    This study is an unethical trial on tiny, vulnerable babies.

    In addition, if the study was honest then the vaccinated group would have been compared to an unvaccinated group.

    It is a deceptive tactic to use other vaccines as “control” as the vaccine may appear safer than it really is. 

    A true placebo is a harmless substance. Scientific method should be based upon removing all potentially confounding influences.

    When a placebo is not used, the term placebo group is a blatant lie.

    It is highly dubious whether such studies conform to valid research.

    Manipulation of statistics is a known problem. There is no reason whatsoever to accept the figures in this study, especially as this is a clear case of the fox guarding the henhouse.

    Regarding such trials on precious little babies - these trials are not clinical trials. They are cynical trials.

    How can this be allowed? Were they given the vaccines with or without parental consent? This is freaking sick!

  • Ninavirago

    Where do you get the information that Harris suppies foetuses to any pharmacological indutry? He’s pro-choice for abortion, Angus, and pro-animal use in medical research. I support the former, but not the latter. Does that mean that I am also then a “supplier of aborted babies”? The issue being discussed is the (over)vaccination of premature babies and a poor research protocol. Harris has nothing to do with this report!
    As has quite rightly been highlighted there are issues with the statistics and report of results, what wasn’t reported was whether the parents of these babies gave INFORMED CONSENT….and the content of the INFORMATION on which, if it was given, that consent was based, if they were paid, and what universities supported the research. If that was as lax as the reporting the parents have the right to sue GSK for misrepresentation of a study protocol. Has the reporter informed the parents of this, or published in a place where they can be alerted to that possibility? If not, she’s as culpable as the researchers.

    Of course

    Isn`t Dr Death heavily supportive of embryo research …

     

    The web is awash with Harris and his Nazi experiment
    idealism ..

    For instance below is why Pharma need aborted babies to grow
    the vaccines..

     

     

     

     

    The production of the Rubella virus requires the
    culture of human cells, referred to as a cell line. As the human cells grow in
    a specific nutrient-rich solution (AKA culture medium), the virus grows within
    the cells and is later released into the culture medium.. The virus is purified
    from the medium for subsequent use as a vaccine. The human cell lines used in
    Rubella vaccine manufacture were obtained in the 60′s from aborted fetuses.
    Human cell line WI-38 was obtained from the lung of an aborted 3 month old
    female fetus.(4) Another cell line used is MRC-5 obtained from the lung of a
    14-week old male aborted fetus in 1966 (5) Most other vaccines produced do not
    require human cell lines. Only viral vaccines require cells within which the
    virus will reproduce. Many viral vaccines (e.g. Polio, Mumps) can use chicken
    embryos or monkey kidney cell lines. Bacterial vaccines (e.g. Diphtheria,
    Tetanus) require the cultivation of the bacteria in a culture medium only
    I could go on…

    In Flanders ( Belgium) the young parents know nothing about vaccines. The responsibal centers give the parents nothing of education or truth about vaccines. It’s all about money and big pharma!

    It still amazes me even though I have learned that this is how pharmaceutical companies work. It’s amazing (as Christina states in the article) that people at the CDC and WHO don’t even seem to be looking at the details of the study itself, just the conclusion! There needs to be laws put in place to stop the companies from being able to do this (approve something without proper independent testing and research)…..
