Over the past decade, an average of over 25,000 cases of pertussis (the respiratory illness also known as “whooping cough”) has been reported to the CDC annually. The CDC made no mention of pertussis in its round-up of “nine health threats that made headlines in 2019” (whereas 1,276 non-fatal cases of measles made the list), but, judging from news reports, 2019 was another banner year for pertussis—especially in the vaccinated. And, as numerous peer-reviewed studies published in the past few years show, the blame must be laid squarely at the feet of a fatally flawed vaccination program that is making vaccinated children more rather than less susceptible to pertussis over their lifetimes.
Pertussis vaccination targets the Bordetella pertussis (B. pertussis) organism, a “fastidious” bacterial pathogen spread by respiratory droplets. Nationally, pertussis-containing vaccine coverage is high—just shy of 95%—yet, by the CDC’s own admission, pertussis outbreaks are increasingly frequent. In addition, many cases of pertussis go undiagnosed and, therefore, unreported, with an estimated ratio of up to 1,400 undocumented pertussis infections for every recorded case. Given the high vaccination rate and the known fact that vaccinated persons can transmit pertussis asymptomatically (see Failure #4), it is important to dissect the spectacular failure of U.S. pertussis vaccination efforts in greater detail.Numerous studies (both recent and not-so-recent) indicate that this dose-intensive vaccination regimen—far from providing meaningful protection—may actually be facilitating pertussis outbreaks.
Failure #1: In U.S. children and adults who receive pertussis-containing vaccines, immunity wanes rapidly—a fact known and reiterated for years….
Failure #2: Pertussis outbreaks are frequent, and the majority of cases are occurring in the vaccinated….
Failure #3: Pertussis risks are significant in infants but are also shifting toward adolescence and adulthood….
Failure #4: Asymptomatic vaccinated individuals are a major source of B. pertussis transmission….
Failure #5: Subclinical pertussis infection is linked to other serious health risks….
Failure #6: Today’s pertussis vaccines are not keeping up with bacterial mutations….
Failure #7: Doctors and public health officials are not being forthright about vaccine failure….
Specialized programs developed by the FDA in the 1980s and 1990s appear to have lowered the bar for approving certain types of drugs, researchers found.
For example, after the passage of the 1983 Orphan Drug Act, which made regulatory standards more flexible when considering drugs for rare diseases, the trials that formed the basis of approvals for rare disease drugs were smaller (96 vs 290 participants), and more frequently nonrandomized (30% vs 80%) and unblinded (4% vs 33%) compared with trials of drugs for common diseases, reported Jonathan Darrow, JD, MBA, of Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, and colleagues.
Similarly, as shown in a “special communication” review in JAMA, drugs designated to have “breakthrough status” were approved in almost half the time as drugs that did not have that status (4.8 vs 8 years), and 52% of drugs in this program approved in the years 2013-2016 relied on an evidence base from phase I or II trials. Another 45% had an evidence base consisting of a single trial and 42% relied on trials that did not have an active or placebo control, Darrow and co-authors reported.
Overall, 52.8% of drugs approved in 2015-2017 were supported by evidence from at least two pivotal trials, down from 80.6% in 1995-1997, the researchers found.
Surrogate measures — like glycated hemoglobin levels for diabetes medications or forced expiratory volume in one second for cystic fibrosis drugs — have also been increasingly used in drug trials, up from 44.3% in 2005-2012 to 59.3% in 2015-2017, the investigators added.
The results showed that the use of special development and approval programs — including the Orphan Drug Act, Accelerated Approval, Fast Tracking, Priority Review, and Breakthrough Therapies — is increasing, such that 48% of drugs qualified for one of these programs in 1986-1996 and more than 80% of drugs in 2018 did.
The current regulatory standards for FDA approval require that new drugs “have the effect it purports or is represented to have,” supported by evidence from “adequate and well-controlled investigations,” but these definitions rely almost entirely on the agency’s interpretation, Darrow told MedPage Today.
“While these words have not changed since 1962, what has changed is the formal approach the FDA takes when interpreting them,” he said. “That means the standard for drug approval has, in fact, changed.”
The proportion of the FDA’s budget for drug and biologics oversight that came from user fees reported in this study was surprisingly high, noted Steven Joffe, MD, MPH, of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, who was not involved with the research.
Drug companies paid $4.1 billion in user fees in years 2013-2017, up from $330 million in 1993-1997, the researchers reported. In 2018, user fees from the drug industry accounted for 80% of the FDA reviewers’ salaries….
In case you missed it:
(Natural News) Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, M.D.Chief Scientist of the World Health Organization, has been caught blatantly lying to the public about vaccine safety. In a public service announcement produced by the W.H.O., she claims “Vaccines are very safe” and that vaccines can “prevent disease without risks.” But in a leaked W.H.O. vaccine summit video that has now gone public, she frets about vaccine safety, saying, “we really don’t have very good safety monitoring systems” and, “[we] learned about adverse events only after the drug’s been licensed and introduced into the population. So I think that risk is always there…”
The blatant contradiction underscores the deliberate, outright lies that characterize the vaccine industry and its propagandists like Dr. Swaminathan. It’s not simply that these people are providing the public false, misleading information about vaccines; it’s that they are fully aware of their lies.
The very same people who publicly proclaim vaccines are “risk free” are caught behind the scenes, just five days later, openly admitting to all the adverse effects (side effects) and failed public safety monitoring systems.
These globalist vaccine pushers are liars. They are criminals against humanity. They knowingly harm children with toxic vaccines that, in their own private meetings, they openly admit to each other are extremely risky….
