The First Six Pages of the Judicial Watch Special Report Examining the FDA’s HPV Vaccine Records

Judicial Watch, the US-based public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, obtained information about Gardasil from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act.    The first 6 pages of  the  Judicial Watch Special Report Gardasil VaccineExamining the FDA’s HPV Vaccine Records are posted below.

At the end of page 4 and on page 5 is evidence which shows that the HPV vaccine has led to outbreaks in warts in some people, which was denied as occurring by Dr Nikki Turner of the NZ Immunization Advisory Center.

Furthermore, at the end of page 5 and at the top of page 6 is mention that Gardasil was found to enhance disease in  recipients who already had “relevant HPV types” by 44.6 percent.   In spite of this Helen Petousis-Harris of the NZ Immunisation Advisory Center stated in a letter to The Whangarei Report: “There is no evidence that Gardasil increases the risk of precancerous lesions.” It states on the Gardasil insert in section 14: “Infected women may already have CIN 2/3 or AIS at vaccination onset and some will develop CIN 2/3 or AIS during followup, either related to a vaccine…”

Judicial Watch findings are summarized in an article entitled Controversial HPV Vaccine Causing One Death Per Month: FDA Report by Peter J Smith and the Judicial Watch document cited is in full here. On the 27th of March, when one clicked on this link,  a web page appeared which dissuaded people from accessing this information, by claiming the site could damage your computer, which is why I posted these 6 pages on this website.  However, since writing this post, the warning page has been removed. If it is up again when you look and you are willing to take a risk, click on “Ignore this warning” at the bottom right-hand-side of the red panel.  I did repeatedly and nothing adverse appears to have occurred to my computer.

A Judicial Watch Special Report
Examining the FDA’s
HPV Vaccine Records

Detailing the Approval Process, Side-Effects, Safety Concerns and Marketing Practices of a Large-Scale Public Health Experiment

Judicial Watch Special Report: Examining The FDA’s HPV Vaccine Records

Page 1 of 24
Introduction

This Judicial Watch Special Report is an analysis of records obtained from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concerning a recent vaccine called Gardasil.
Gardasil helps protect against four types of human papillomavirus (HPV). The vaccine was approved in May 2006 and was created and marketed by Merck & Company Incorporated.
The records include Merck’s patent and drug information submitted to the FDA, transcripts and briefing material from approval meetings, and reports documenting health, safety, and efficacy test results, as well as Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) documents detailing 8,864 cases of adverse effects experienced by people after receiving the Gardasil vaccine. VAERS reports show that at least eighteen people have died after receiving Gardasil.1  Many health officials believe that adverse reactions to medications are widely underreported, therefore the actual number of adverse events occurring after vaccination with Gardasil is likely to be higher.
Judicial Watch obtained these records under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. § 552. The request, asking for documents concerning Gardasil, was originally submitted to the FDA on May 9, 2007. The FDA produced documents on May 15, 2007; September 13, 2007; February 27, 2008, and June 10, 2008.

Judicial Watch uncovered thousands of pages of material pertaining to Gardasil, which is designed to prevent cervical cancer. The controversial vaccine was fast-tracked for approval by the FDA despite concerns about Gardasil’s safety and long-term effects. The vaccine is still in the testing stages (final report due September 30, 2009), but it is already being administered to thousands of young girls and women.2  Mandatory vaccination has been opposed by the American College of Pediatrics and The New England Journal of Medicine. Legislators in 41 states and Washington, DC have introduced legislation to require, fund or educate the public about the HPV vaccine and 17 states have enacted legislation. Michigan, Texas and Virginia took steps toward mandatory vaccination for sixth grade girls; however, all three states have postponed that required mandate. 3

Judicial Watch is concerned by the facts detailed in the FDA’s adverse event
reporting associated with Gardasil. Merck has waged an aggressive lobbying campaign with state governments to mandate this HPV vaccine for young girls. Given all the questions about Gardasil, the best public health policy would be to reevaluate its safety and to prohibit its distribution to minors. In the least, governments should rethink any efforts to mandate or promote this vaccine for children.

Executive Summary
In May 2007, Judicial Watch submitted a request to the FDA under the Freedom of Information Act for all records concerning Merck’s new anti-HPV vaccine, Gardasil.
After Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit in October 2007 to compel record production, the FDA finally released four sets of documents, the last in June 2008. These records detail the development and expedited approval of Gardasil. The documents include patent and licensing memoranda, test reports for the vaccine, and the final briefing document on Gardasil submitted to the FDA in April 2006, one month before the vaccine was
approved. The FDA also produced 8,864 VAERS reports. Judicial Watch uncovered a transcript of Merck’s May 18, 2006, meeting with the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC), at which the vaccine received a unanimous vote of approval.
Analysis of the records shows:
• Gardasil is a prophylactic, preventative vaccine and will not treat pre-existing HPV infection. It is not a cancer vaccine or cure.
• Gardasil is marketed as a vaccine that prevents cancer, but it “ . . . has not
been evaluated for the potential to cause carcinogenicity or genotoxicity.”
• Gardasil is not 100% effective against all HPVs. It is designed to protect
against only four strains of HPV, even though there are over thirty strains
including at least fifteen that can cause cancer.
• While Gardasil is the most expensive vaccine ever to be recommended by the FDA, its long-term effectiveness is unknown and could be as brief as only two to three years.
• During testing, an aluminium-containing placebo was used. Aluminium can cause permanent cell damage and is a reactive placebo, unlike most standard saline placebos. This means that tests of Gardasil may not have given an accurate picture of safety levels.
• Although some states are considering making it mandatory for young girls to get the Gardasil vaccine, it has only been tested with one other vaccine
commonly given to children. There are ten commonly administered
adolescent vaccines.
• Gardasil is still in the testing stages, and will not be fully evaluated for safety until September 2009.  VAERS reports show that as many as eighteen people have died after receiving Gardasil.

Researchers Suggest Insufficient Evidence of Efficacy of HPV Vaccine

David Gutierrez
Natural NewsGardasil Vaccine
Wednesday, March 11, 2009

There is not enough evidence to confidently state that two popular vaccines against the human papillomavirus (HPV) will reliably prevent against the development of cervical cancer, according to two articles published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

“Despite great expectations and promising results of clinical trials, we still lack sufficient evidence of an effective vaccine against cervical cancer,” wrote Charlotte J. Haug, editor of The Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association, in the first article. “With so many essential questions still unanswered, there is good reason to be cautious.”

Haug noted that Merck’s Gardasil and GlaxoSmithKlein’s Cervarix have only been studied clinically for six and a half years at the most, and have only been on the market since 2006. This means that researchers still do not know if the vaccines are effective against HPV over the long term, or what cancer-related side effects they might have. For example, protecting the body from infection with certain HPV strains might have unforeseen immunological side effects, reducing the body’s resistance to other varieties.

Due to the newness of both vaccines, it is also not yet been possible to see whether they actually reduce cervical cancer rates. Normally, it takes years of HPV infection before cancer can develop – more time than either drug has been studied.

In the second article, a pair of Harvard researchers noted that HPV vaccination is not necessarily a cost-effective way to protect against cervical cancer. Current screening methods such as Pap smears have been very effective in reducing the death rate of cervical cancer already, but such tests must continue even after receiving an HPV vaccine. Even at their best, the vaccines do not protect against all cervical cancer strains that can cause cancer; a woman who has already been exposed to one of the strains in the vaccine will get no benefit from it.

“I believe the vaccine is a great advance,” said Philip Davies of the European Cervical Cancer Association, “but we have to implement it properly to get the benefits, and that hasn’t happened.”

Rat Poison Chemical Found in Ingredient List For HPV Vaccine

Joanne Waldron
NaturalNews Friday, Nov 21, 2008

What do rat poison and the HPV vaccine have in common? The answer is a hazardous chemical known as sodium borate. Savvy readers may wonder what a toxin that is commonly used to kill rats is doing in the ingredient list for the HPV vaccine that is currently being pushed on girls as young as nine and is even being considered for men and boys. Unfortunately, the answer isn’t very comforting, especially for new U.S. residents for whom the HPV injection containing sodium borate is now mandated.

What is Sodium Borate?

Sodium borate, a boric acid salt also known as borax, has many common uses. In addition to its use as a rat poison, it is also used in laundry detergents, cosmetics, enamel glazes, flame retardants, and buffer solutions in chemistry. However, sodium borate also has antifungal properties, which means that its probable reason for being in the vaccine is to act as a preservative.

Sodium Borate Banned as Food Additive

Sodium borate is used as a food additive in some countries, but it is now outlawed in many places. For example, one Australian government recall site notes: “Product is Borax (sodium borate) which is a non permitted food additive and is harmful to health.” So, if it’s “harmful to health,” why is it being added to the HPV vaccine?

No Longer Used in Medical Preparations

The U.S. National Library of Medicine states in an article that boric acid is “no longer commonly used in medical preparations.” It’s a good thing, too, considering that the U.S. National Library of Medicine also reports that this substance used to be used to disinfect and treat wounds and that individuals “who received such treatment over and over again got sick, and some died.” In fact, the U.S. National Library of Medicine provides the number for Poison Control for people exposed to this chemical and notes that treatment for those exposed to it may include gastric lavage (stomach pumping), dialysis, and liquids by mouth or IV.

Sodium Borate Poisoning Symptoms Mimic Reactions to HPV Vaccine

Sadly, the information about sodium borate gets even scarier. Another government website article states that exposure to sodium borate can cause convulsions and other ill health effects. Interestingly enough, young girls who receive the HPV vaccine have reported similar symptoms to those that appear in cases of sodium borate poisoning. This particular government site provides the following warning regarding this chemical: “WARNING! HARMFUL IF SWALLOWED, INHALED OR ABSORBED THROUGH SKIN. CAUSES IRRITATION TO SKIN, EYES AND RESPIRATORY TRACT.” Given this information, is sodium borate really something that should be injected into humans? This is something the reader should carefully consider, along with the previously reported information, before choosing to receive the controversial HPV vaccine.

Cancer jab (HPV) linked to pancreas disease

Louise Hall, Health Reporter
August 17, 2008

THE cervical cancer vaccine is under fresh scrutiny after three women were struck down with pancreatitis soon after receiving the injection.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is investigating whether the shot of Gardasil caused the sudden inflammation of the pancreas in the three patients, or whether it was just a coincidence.

A 26-year-old woman went to Bankstown Hospital four days after receiving her first dose of the quadrivalent vaccine, which protects young women from the strains of human papillomavirus (HPV) that cause 70percent of cervical cancers. Read more

UNCENSORED DOCTOR: THE HPV CIRCUS OF DEATH ROLLED OUT

UK – HPV Gardasil Circus Of Death Rolled Out
The British State Media Whore Big Pharma Nexus
By Philip Jones
9-3-8

On the front page of MSN UK this morning is the below article. Please note the happy faces of the three pretty young girls. I’ll wager my house that following the three shot Gardasil vaccine programme being advocated to inoculate against this `killer` virus, they won’t be smiling so heartily. This MSN article is typical of the mainstream media’s whorish slavery to the State/Pharma Nexus. There is barely a word of truth contained in it’s shoddy and poorly researched text, and yet the same rubbish or similar will be reproduced indiscriminately throughout the UK media, and believed without question by the vast majority who read it. Together with what can only be called a `Mass Marketing Campaign` for Gardasil and Merck, the Corporate Beast which produces it, it is difficult to see how one can even make a `dent` in the number of innocent young girls, whose lives will be forever affected by their parents decision to accept the Governments propaganda, and allow their daughters to receive the course of `jabs`.

NZ Vaccine Brochure Fails to Provide Information on Dangers of Vaccination

25 June 2008, by Clare Swinney

This week a brochure entitled: “Is your child safe? Information on vaccination” arrived inside one of the free newspapers in my region, in Northland.

Booklet delivered to homes in Whangarei

The 16-page booklet contained a number of graphic photos of children with disfiguring diseases and statements in coloured boxes, including: “Having the vaccine is several thousand times safer than having the disease the vaccine protects against, ” as well as information on “What is a Pandemic? ” Unfortunately, this brochure provided only one side of the story, the scaremongering one that suits the drug companies, while failing to address the many very serious issues related to vaccine safety.

Under the heading “Influenza” it stated: “Outbreaks of the “Flu” occur in New Zealand every year from May to October and kill at least 400 annually.” But is this correct? The figure of 400 seems oddly high for a country with a population of only around 4.2 million. I phoned up to ask the office that released the booklet where this figure had come from, but am still waiting for an answer two days later.

An article posted on Dr Mercola’s website mentioned that the flu deaths in the US have been grossly exaggerated to increase vaccines sales. Specifically, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) had claimed that there were 36,000 deaths from the flu for 2002, while a more comprehensive report showed that in reality there were only 736 for that year, [1, 2]. How did the CDC get from 753 flu deaths to its statement that 36,000 flu deaths occurred annually? By combining flu deaths with pneumonia deaths.

Also, while the brochure stated that flu shots are free to those over 65 years of age, it did not mention that there is significant evidence to indicate that there is no corresponding decrease in death rates in this group. According to a 2007 review in the Lancet medical journal, no studies have conclusively proven that flu shots prevent flu-related deaths among the elderly and some of the support for this practice is based on flawed data, [3,4,5].

Furthermore, there was no mention that there is evidence which links flu shots to Alzheimer’s Disease, [6] . Dr Hugh Fudenberg, the world’s leading immunogeneticist, [7] who has close to 850 papers in peer review journals, has stated that if an individual has had 5 consecutive flu shots between 1970 and 1980 – the years studied – their chances of getting Alzheimer’s, is 10 times higher than if he/she had one, 2 or no shots and said he believed that this was due to the mercury and aluminium that is in every flu shot.

Whilst there is clear evidence to show a vaccine-autism link, this was not canvassed in the booklet, instead the matter was swept under the carpet. It offered: “One study claimed the MMR vaccine could cause Autism. All but one of the researchers have now withdrawn their claims against the vaccine.” Even, Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain has weighed in on this debate and said on the campaign trail in late-February that “there’s strong evidence” that a preservative in vaccines is fuelling the dramatic rise in autism, [8]. Dr. Boyd Haley, who testified before Congress as one of the leading experts in the US on the effects of the mercury in vaccines, has reported that his research had led him to conclude that some children are genetically predisposed to storing mercury in their brains and that the cumulative effect of this leads to neurological disorders, including autism, [9].

To listen to Dr Boyd Haley talk about mercury toxicity and autism, go here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQYISvsgq6s

Dr Hayley

More alarmingly still, the brochure has a section on “The Wart Virus and Cancer” which stated that: “Two vaccines are now available: Glaxo SmithKline vaccines protects against HPV 16 and 18 and Merck vaccine protects against HPV 6, 11, 16 & 18.” For those who didn’t know, Merck’s HPV vaccine has been associated with thousands of adverse reactions and been linked to a number of deaths, [11]. Worse still is that this suffering may all have been for nothing, as FDA documents have revealed that the FDA has been aware that the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) has no direct link to cervical cancer, [12].

One of Merck’s top scientist, Dr. Maurice Hilleman, who developed the Mumps, Rubella and Measles vaccines, himself has stated: “Vaccines are the bargain basement technology of the 20th century” and during the same interview, which is online in the documentary by Dr Len Horowitz – ‘In Lies We Trust,’ he admits that Merck has been injecting cancer viruses (SV40 and others) into millions of vaccine recipients, [13]. Yes, that’s right – go and hear Dr Hilleman for yourself here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edikv0zbAlU

Scaremongering About a Pandemic

To conclude, while the booklet may help garner revenue for vaccine makers, it has not acknowledged the potential cost to the recipients of their products and if anything leaves one to question what the intended purposes of being vaccinated really are.
