Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 1 Num. 53

("Quid coniuratio est?")

(From The Spotlight, July 18, 1994)

Washington, D.C. -- The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) {1}, operated by Dissatisfied Parents Together (DPT), is calling on Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Donna Shalala to immediately conduct new, independently monitored testing of archived samples of polio vaccine for possible contamination with monkey retroviruses {2}.

The consumer advocate group is also requesting that genetic analysis be conducted on any extraneous viruses found in the vaccine lots to determine their potential link to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), also a retrovirus, and the origin of the AIDS epidemic.

In response to an investigative article in Redbook magazine questioning the link between AIDS and contaminated polio vaccine, NVIC/DPT is demanding that the government make public all results of past and future testing of polio vaccine samples and other biological products for retroviruses or simian (monkey) virus contamination. NVIC/DPT, which represents families of children injured or killed by vaccines, is also pointing to a 1992 article published in a prominent medical journal, The Lancet, in which American lawyer Walter S. Kyle presented evidence linking contaminated polio vaccine to the origin of the AIDS epidemic.

-+- What Did They Know? -+-

Kyle, who has represented families of individuals killed or injured by polio vaccines for the past 17 years, suggested in the Lancet article that U.S. government and drug company scientists knew as early as 1976 that polio virus grown on the kidney tissues of the African green monkey and used in the manufacturing of polio vaccine was contaminated with simian retroviruses. In a 1993 letter to Dr. Philip Lee, assistant secretary of HHS, Kyle requested testing of oral polio vaccine lots, especially those manufactured between 1976 and 1985, for possible retrovirus contamination.

NVIC/DPT Co-Founder and President Barbara Loe Fisher said, "American citizens, who are required by law to be vaccinated, have the right to demand honest answers from the government about whether contaminated polio vaccine may have caused AIDS, and the best and only way to address this issue is to immediately test vaccine samples in the archives of the U.S. government. It looks like scientists in the FDA knew a long time ago that polio vaccine grown on African green monkey kidney tissue was contaminated with monkey retroviruses but they continued business as usual and did not require manufacturing processes to be changed."

-+- Be Concerned -+-

"This is a legitimate cause for public concern because retroviruses have been found to cause leukemia and cancerous tumors in lab animals as well as, over time, to cause cellular and genetic changes in the host they infect. The public deserves a serious investigation into vaccine development, manufacturing and testing in this country."

In addition to the Lancet and Redbook articles, a lawsuit was filed on February 14 in New Jersey on behalf of an American child who has AIDS with no known risk factors. In the lawsuit, American Cyanamid, through Lederle Laboratories, was charged with manufacturing oral polio vaccine contaminated with retroviruses.

Oral polio vaccine made in the kidney tissues of the African green monkey, especially between the years of 1976 and 1985, was ingested by millions of children (some of whom may have had open mouth sores at the time of vaccination or already had compromised immune systems) as well as ingested by an unknown number of homosexual adults whose doctors used the vaccine in the U.S. and Africa to treat herpes lesions.

---------------------------<< Notes >>--------------------------- {1} The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), operated by Dissatisfied Parents Together (DPT), is a national educational organization founded in 1982 by parents whose children were injured or killed by the DPT vaccine. The organization, which worked to create the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, serves as an information clearinghouse on vaccines and childhood diseases and is dedicated to preventing vaccine injuries and deaths through public education.

{2} The AIDS/Polio Connection. In Rolling Stone magazine, March 19, 1992 ("The Origin of AIDS"), "...Reporter Tom Curtis contends the African outbreak could be due to polio vaccines contaminated with 'SV 40,' the simian monkey virus. Between 1954 and 1963, thirty million Africans were injected with the polio vaccine."
