Government-Sponsored Public Hearing of the Health Ministry’s Advisory Council for the Deliberations on the Reported Adverse Events of HPV Vaccines, February 26, 2014

Health Impact News Editor Comments:

We bring you this is international news regarding the continuing investigations going on in Japan regarding the numerous reports of injuries and deaths related to the HPV vaccines. You will not read this in the pro-Pharma U.S. mainstream media. Lawsuits for damages due to the Gardasil vaccine in France likewise receive no U.S. mainstream media exposure. Instead, the U.S. media portrays the HPV vaccine as safe, and ridicules those who think otherwise. Efforts to give the vaccine to minors without their parent’s consent have succeeded in some states, like California.

And so while Japan has put a halt on recommending HPV vaccines while doctors and researchers investigate reports of serious adverse effects, even as lawsuits mount in other countries outside of the U.S. (you cannot sue drug companies in the U.S. by law for vaccine damages), the U.S. president and government are pushing for increased vaccination rates of the HPV vaccines here in the U.S. Most people do not realize that the U.S. government also holds patents on the Gardasil vaccine and receives royalties from their sales.

Gardasil is a very dangerous vaccine, and the mainstream media is not publishing the other side of the story. Those who do, like Katie Couric last year, are forced to apologize. Recent published studies have linked Gardasil to premature menopause in young girls. Learn more about the HPV vaccine Gardasil here, including many stories from the victims.

Japan: International Medical Researchers Issue Warning about HPV Vaccine Side Effects

by Norma Erickson

The International Symposium on the adverse reactions experienced by girls who have been vaccinated by Human Papillomavirus vaccines and subsequent events which took place in Tokyo on February 25th and 26th have sparked a high-profile debate over HPV vaccine safety, efficacy and need.

The Researchers’ Organization Sounding a Warning concerning the Adverse Reactions induced by Human Papillomavirus Vaccines, led by Dr. Harumi Sakai, a former professor of Tokai University, School of Medicine and a former leader at the immunochemical research team at Texas University, Galveston, reported that Sin Hang Lee, MD, former Associate Professor at Yale University and currently  pathologist of Milford Hospital, Dr. Francois Jerome Authier, MD, a professor at Universite Paris XII and a doctor at Systeme Hospital Henri Mondor de Paris, and research fellow Lucija Tomljenovic, a PhD from the University of British Columbia, presented evidence regarding the risks involved with HPV vaccines during the symposium, two press conferences and a government-sponsored public hearing on February 26th.

The public hearing was attended by eight medical academic members of the Japanese government’s Advisory Council on the Alleged Adverse Reactions to HPV Vaccines, several top-ranking Health Ministry bureaucrats, medical doctors and journalists from the nation’s major newspapers and television networks.

The non-Japanese academics and Dr. Sakai presented scientific data supporting several biologically plausible mechanisms of action by which HPV vaccines could cause devastating autoimmune and auto-inflammatory conditions whose symptoms are identical to those reported by HPV vaccine recipients in Japan and around the world.

Brief Synopsis of Scientific/Medical Evidence Presented:

International Scientific Experts present biological plausible mechanisms of action for HPV vaccine injuries

The scientific information presented by the medical experts at the public hearing and news conferences may help Japanese lawmakers and other policy makers make right decisions and put forward recommendations concerning the future of the current HPV vaccination policy program for the best of their citizens.

The current official theory that the government relies on to explain the numerous reports of serious symptoms among the teenage girls vaccinated with the HPV vaccines — Gardasil and Cervarix — was published in January by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.

The nine-paragraph government document is entitled, “The Outline of the Results of Deliberations Which Have Been Held So Far Concerning Human Papilloma Virus Vaccines at the Advisory Council for the Deliberations of the Alleged Adverse Reactions to HPV Vaccines.”

The official document states:

“Deliberations were held on the cases that have been reported as side effects of the human papilloma virus vaccines following their vaccinations, mainly as intense pains at various parts of vaccine recipients’ bodies and as the recipients’ movement impairments and the following joint understandings (among the members of the advisory council) were obtained.”

The most problematic among the seven joint understandings explained by the documents is as follows:

“The following theories can be considered as the mechanism that could cause the symptoms reported in connection with the present problem (1) neurological disorders (2) poisoning (3) immunological reactions (4) psychosomatic reactions. The theories from (1) to (3) cannot explain these symptoms, so the symptoms are regarded as the consequence of psychosomatic reactions in the (4).”

The document’s final paragraph said the advisory council “will draw up a draft report to the government and hold deliberations concerning the appropriateness of restarting an active recommendation of the HPV vaccination in the council’s next meeting scheduled for February 26 and in subsequent meetings.”

But Dr. Sin Hang Lee said even if the government seeks to explain away the adverse reactions experienced by these vaccinated girls as psychosomatic reactions, such theory cannot be deemed logical and scientific.

Dr. Lee noted that no scientists at the Feb. 26 public hearing — at which he reported his detections of HPV DNA fragments in 16 unopened  vials of Gardasil sent to Milford Medical Laboratory Inc. from nine countries and in the postmortem blood and spleen samples obtained at the autopsy of the 18-year-old New Zealand girl who died after Gardasil vaccination — could raise their hands when he asked them to do so if they believe that psychosomatic reactions can cause sudden unexpected death in sleep among young girls or cause the clearly visible lesions captured with the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) method as well as the histopathology lesions reported in patients of post-Gardasil acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) and multiple sclerosis.

When Dr. Lee referred to the lesions demonstrated by the MRI method and by the pathological photographic evidence of inflammation in the brain of a 16-year-old Connecticut girl who has lost her vision completely since the 10th day from her second Gardasil shot in 2007, he was speaking on behalf of the treating physician, Dr. Mirna Hajjar who was also present among the audience at the Tokyo public hearing.

This previously healthy girl, the patient, presented to the emergency room in 2007 with an acute onset of visual loss over 48 hours and left hemiparesis. She “was found to have both a tumefactive demyelinating lesion and chiasmal neuritis as part of a presentation of acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis,” according to the medical report that was published on the March 2010 issue of the Journal of Child Neurology (Vol.25, pages 321-327.)

The photomicrographs were taken of the biopsy of her brain by a medical doctor of a research team led by Francois DiMario, MD, Mirna Hajjar, MD and Thomas Ciesielski, MD (the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, Farmington, Connecticut, and the Departments of Pediatrics at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, Hartford, Connecticut; and the Department of Neurology and Pathology at Hartford Hospital, Hartford, Connecticut).

The photomicrographs of the brain biopsy demonstrated demyelination and a vessel cuffed with lymphocytes and surrounded by infiltrating macrophages.

Dr. Hajjar who played a crucial role by giving her courageous scientific testimony at the Tokyo news conference on Feb. 26 is one of the three coauthors of the medical report which appeared on the Journal of Child Neurology.

When asked about key developments at the public hearing, Dr. Sin Hang Lee stated:

“As a pathologist, it is my duty to find plausible mechanisms of action for sudden unexpected death and unexplained acute disseminated (demyelinating) encephalomyelitis after HPV vaccination, and I have proposed such a scientifically plausible mechanism based on known DNA transfection by nanoparticles of aluminum/ DNA complexes.

The opposing opinion (against my position) is that all symptoms and signs manifested by the post-HPV vaccinated girls were the results of psychosomatic reactions.

I do not believe psychosomatic reactions can cause sudden unexpected death in sleep, or inflammatory lesions in the brain as demonstrated by the MRI images and the brain biopsy histopathology with perivascular lymphocytes and macrophages and demyelination.

I asked the scientists at the public hearing to raise their hands if they really believe that psychosomatic reactions can cause a sudden unexpected death in sleep and a brain inflammation.

Then I stated on record that I do not see anyone raising hands in the audience-to conclude my rebuttal.”

The term “transfection” used in Dr. Lee’s testimony means a process of introducing foreign DNA into human cells by non-viral vehicles, such as the aluminum/DNA complex nanoparticles.

The debate over HPV vaccination policy in Japan is not finished.One set of participants led by Dr. Lee and Professor Authier has proposed scientifically plausible mechanisms of action.

The other side declared in the Japanese government document that these events are the consequences of psychosomatic reactions.

However, these foreign scientists and some Japanese intellectuals have demonstrated their courage by becoming catalysts with which the HPV vaccine-related health issue was debated for the benefits of the general public with nationwide media coverage.

Let’s hope politicians and intellectuals worldwide follow their example and take actions that could cause similar scientific debates to be held in their own countries to defend and save the future health of millions of teenage girls.

Let us hope that scientific evidence will outweigh the psychosomatic theory which may be threatening to mislead the general public worldwide into attributing all symptoms at vaccinated girls to psychological problems on the part of vaccinated girls.

If theories similar or essentially identical to this irrational and irresponsible theory were allowed to proliferate across the world with no conscientious scientists or intellectuals stepping forward to refute the pseudo-scientific theories, the health of many more young people could be devastated.

Have HPV vaccines caused a global epidemic of psychosomatic disorders?

By Norma Erickson

Mass hysteria, conversion disorder, psychogenic illness, Munchausen by proxy, fabricated illness – all are terms familiar to those who experience new medical conditions after using the HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix. Countless people have been told that their new and mysterious symptoms are psychosomatic because doctors are unable to discover what is causing their symptoms.

Do health authorities truly expect people to believe there is a global epidemic of psychosomatic disorders that just ‘happened’ to begin shortly after the implementation of HPV vaccination programs?

Why is it that families with daughters and sons who experience new medical conditions after taking Gardasil or Cervarix can visit every kind of medical specialist available without discovering the cause of their child’s symptoms?

Part of the problem could be that while studying to become doctors, people are taught that vaccine injuries are so rare that they will probably never see one during their entire career.

Part of the problem could be that vaccine injuries exhibit such a broad range of symptoms that it is difficult to determine whether the symptoms are the result of illness or injury.

Part of the problem could be there is no diagnostic criteria established for vaccine injuries. Therefore, physicians have no idea what to look for in order to determine if the symptoms are a result of HPV vaccine administration or not.

Then again, Dr. Mark Flannery may have hit the nail on the head in a recent article he wrote for, in which he stated:

“It is not uncommon for me to encounter a condition I have never seen before as I treat so many people who have been to practitioner after practitioner seeking answers for their obscure health condition. I see patients being dismissed by the medical field because they cannot find a diagnosis.

In the medical field it is all about the diagnosis. In order to get paid or reimbursed by insurance there has to be a diagnosis. In order to determine medical treatment there has to be a diagnosis. If there is no diagnosis to be found then there must not be a problem or the problem is in the head (made up).”

So basically, if it’s not ‘in the book,’ it doesn’t exist except for in the mind?

Another typical example of the callous disregard for the suffering of those who experience adverse events after Gardasil or Cervarix was expressed by Dr. Yutaka Ohno, of Keio University, who has stated publicly:

“It is impossible to find physical causes for the alleged and presumed adverse reactions at those vaccinated girls, so we cannot help concluding that their so-called adverse reactions are the mere consequences of psychosomatic reactions.  The government should provide counselling to the girls so that they may be freed from their psychosomatic reactions.”

This is a prime example of the attitude being exhibited worldwide when it comes to the thousands of families impacted by serious adverse events after HPV vaccine administration. Forget trying to treat their ailments; let’s free them from their psychosis.

Where does this leave those unfortunate families whose children are suffering after HPV vaccinations? It doesn’t matter to them that vaccine injuries are supposed to be rare – Their children are suffering and the world does not seem to care.

Society has failed these families. No one will dispute the fact that vaccine injuries can and do happen. It truly does not matter how rare vaccine injuries are, or are not. What matters is people are suffering needlessly.

The time has come to find out why some people suffer such severe side effects and why.

A diagnostic criteria must be established for vaccine injuries so medical professionals know what to look for.

It is time for medical professionals to find cures for the vaccine injured – it is time to choose science over psychosis.
