Is Tafenoquine Another Drug Disaster In The Making? ..


When he was interviewed by Evan Davis (of the BBC see here)-  GSK’s (former CEO) Andrew Witty said: ‘On the one hand we have wonder drugs and on the other danger drugs”. What he meant was- the pharmaceutical industry has a bad reputation because some of their drugs released on the market can cause immeasurable harm to unsuspecting patients, while others can no doubt help patients. There are the GSK danger drugs- like Seroxat/Paxil and Avandia, and many more from other pharmaceutical companies- Vioxx being one of the most well known examples..

Will GSK’s Tafenoquine will turn out to be a danger drug or a wonder drug? This remains to be seen.

However, according to Dr Remington Nevin (check him here), GSK’s Tafenoquine is already turning out to be quite the danger drug…

How many people will get neuro-toxic side effects from Tafenoquine when it hits the US market? It looks like we’re just about to find out…

GSK, MMV submit malaria drug in the US

GlaxoSmithKline and the Medicines for Malaria Venture are seeking permission to market single-dose tafenoquine in the US to prevent relapse of Plasmodium vivax malaria.

The application, which relates to patients 16 years of age and older, is based on data from the GATHER and DETECTIVE trials.

The Phase III DETECTIVE trial showed that a statistically significant greater proportion of patients treated with single-dose tafenoquine (60 percent) remained relapse-free over the six-month follow-up period than patients on placebo (26 percent).

The GATHER trial investigated a single-dose of 300mg tafenoquine on levels of haemoglobin when compared to a 14-day course of 15mg primaquine, and showed that the incidence of decline “was very low and similar between the two treatment groups”, at 2.4 percent versus 1.2 percent, respectively.

GSK and MMV note that, if approved, tafenoquine would be the first new medicine for the prevention of relapse of P vivax malaria in more than 60 years, “potentially addressing the need for a single-dose and effective medicine for this debilitating disease”.

“One of the greatest challenges for patients with P. vivax malaria is preventing relapses,” said Patrick Vallance, president of R&D at GSK.

“Being able to treat patients with a single dose of medicine would be an important step forward in ensuring efficacious treatment, thereby reducing the risk of relapse, particularly in areas with very limited healthcare infrastructure.”

Teen dancer left paralysed after HPV cervical cancer vaccine

A TEENAGE dancer has been left paralysed from the waist down after taking the HPV vaccine which helps to prevent cervical cancer.

TRAGIC: A teen dancer has been left paralysed after taking the HPV vaccine

Chloe Brookes-Holder was once a healthy 12-year-old who danced six days a week when given the jab.

But now, six years on, the 18-year-old remains stranded in hospital, emaciated and paralysed.

Chloe, of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, said: “At first, my family and I didn’t put two and two together.

“Since getting sick from something the NHS gave me I don’t trust any medical professionals that I don’t know”

“We thought the vaccine was safe because they give it in schools and on the letter the parents were given to sign consent I remember reading ‘it saves lives’.”

She said in the months that followed getting the injection at school, she fell ill with dizziness, headaches, fatigue and bone and joint pain – which left her muscles weakened.

She has now lost three stones, dropping to just 5st and is now being fed through a tube.

For years, doctors told Chloe the condition was in her head but now some believe the injection triggered an autoimmute response, causing her body to attack itself.

The teen said: “We trust our government to keep us safe but now, since getting sick from something the NHS gave me I don’t trust any medical professionals that I don’t know.

“Why? Because I’ve been treated in such a barbaric way. It’s been ill on earth.”

Her mother, Sophie Brookes, 41, has been forced to give her job up as a hairdresser to become her full-time carer.

The 18-year-old is certain her symptoms are linked to the vaccine, which protects against the human papilloma virus and cause cervical caner – this kills around 900 women a year.

She said: “I danced six days a week and loved to go to after-school sport and dance clubs every night. I was on the right road to getting A’s at GCSE.

“I wanted to have a dance career and my heart bleeds with the torture knowing I may never walk again and therefore ever dance again.”

Parents have called for more research into the jab, which has been a routine offered to 12 and 13-year-old girls since 2008.

Chloe became ill between her second and third injection of the Cervarix vaccine in late 2010 and the summer of 2011.

She came down with a string of viruses, started experiencing debilitating muscle pain and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia.

A gastrointestinal disorder left her in agony every time she ate or lost control of her bladder.

She was later diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome which causes abnormal heart rate.

A year after having the injection, Chloe also began experiencing paralytic episodes and collapsing at school, unable to control her lower body.

She said: “I’m not scaremongering, I just care about others. This is real. This is the pure ugly truth. I want to make people aware so they can make decisions for themselves.”

SHOCKING: Photos show her hooked to wires and drips

Cervarix was given to 6 million girls and while it is no longer offered to girls at school by the NHS, a new HPV vaccine, Gardasil is.

European Medicines Agency statistics show that up to January 2017, 3,683 reactions to Cervarix were reported and 11,802 to Gardasil.

Some 380 families, represented by the UK Association for Vaccine Injured Daughters, have called for more information in schools and research into potential side effects.

Medics have dismissed their concerns and NHS England insists that the jab is not dangerous, writing on its website that it is a “safe vaccine”.

Freda Burrell, of the UK Association for Vaccine Injured Daughters, said: “Many medical professionals will not link the vaccine to the girls’ health problems.

“Yet common sense should speak loudly if their medical records were excellent prior to the vaccine and their health changed dramatically after they had the jab.”

Public Health England and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency issued a joint statement in response to the claims.

They said: “As with all vaccines, the safety of the HPV vaccine is under constant review. Every report of a suspected side effect is taken seriously.”

“That there is no credible evidence of a link between the HPV vaccine and a range of chronic illnesses.”

They concluded: “The European Medicines Agency has also rued out a link to Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.”

In 2008 the UK Government, assuming that the HPV vaccine to be capable of preventing cervical cancer (without any evidence to support it can prevent a single case of cancer), did an Impact Assessment using £1.7 billion as the cost of using HPV vaccine for the next 100 years. They also failed to consider any cost of adverse reactions! even though there were huge numbers during the clinical trials.

There is ZERO evidence that Cervarix and Gardasil will ever prevent a single case of cancer. The manufacturers, GSK and Merck, only ever state they are ‘intended to’ or ‘expected to’ but it will be 20 years before we find out.

Cervarix is expected to prevent 2 strains of HPV, Gardasil 4 strains and Gardasil9 9 strains but there are over 170 strains of HPV with at least 40 involved in cancers but scientists expect other strains, potentially more lethal, to take the place of those which might be prevented by the vaccines.

The World Health Organisation has a database of adverse drug reports at vigiaccess.org. There are over 72,000 reports of adverse events with this vaccine, including 280 deaths, WHO also acknowledges only 10% get reported.

What is worse there have been several reports of VACCINATED girls as young as 18 developing cervical cancer.

Thank you Chloe for being so brave and helping to out the truth about this awful vaccine which is costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of pounds and filling our hospitals with severely disabled patients.

If you suspect your daughter, or son, have developed serious autoimmune diseases following vaccination please contact the UK Association of HPV Vaccine Injured Daughters (AHVID) for help

Suit opens in Tokyo court over cervical cancer vaccine side effects

by

Staff Writer

Twenty-eight girls and women suffering what they say are side effects from cervical cancer vaccines that were recommended by the government demanded compensation from the state and drugmakers Monday as their trial opened at the Tokyo District Court.

The plaintiffs, ranging in age from 15 to 22, said they have experienced a wide range of health problems, including pain all over their bodies and impaired mobility, after receiving the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines between 2010 and 2013.

Each is demanding ¥15 million in damages.

Erina Sonoda, a 20-year-old college student, said she started to suffer strong menstrual pain after receiving the second of three recommended shots of the Cervarix vaccine, and the pain spread to other parts of her body after the third vaccination.

Due to agonizing pain, Sonoda said she has difficulty walking without a cane and often must use a wheelchair.

“I felt acute pain as if someone was squashing my internal organs. … Such conditions have only gotten worse,” Sonoda told the court while sitting in a wheelchair.

“I received the shots because the government recommended it,” she said. “I want the government to take seriously its responsibility for causing us (to suffer from) such symptoms.”

Since last July, a total of 119 plaintiffs have filed similar suits with courts in Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka and Fukuoka, according to Masumi Minaguchi, a lawyer representing the women.

The government and the drugmakers — GlaxoSmithKline PLC and Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp., who make the HPV vaccines Cervarix and Gardasil, respectively — sought Monday to dismiss the compensation claims.

Representatives of the drugmakers said the safety and effectiveness of the medicines against cervical cancer have been scientifically confirmed and denied there is any link between the alleged side effects and the vaccines.

The Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry began recommending in April 2013 that girls between 12 and 16 be vaccinated for cervical cancer. But the ministry halted the recommendation two months later following reports of side effects.

According to the ministry, 2,945 people out of the 3.39 million women who had received the shots by the end of last April have reported side effects.

A causal link between the HPV vaccines and reported symptoms remains unclear, and no scientific proof has been submitted.

A nationwide survey conducted by a health ministry research team between July and December 2015 found symptoms claimed as side effects of cervical cancer vaccines in both vaccinated and unvaccinated populations.

The team is conducting further detailed analysis of the data.

Cervical cancer is the second most common cause of cancer deaths in women under 40. Each year about 10,000 women develop the disease in Japan and around 2,900 die annually, according to the National Cancer Center.

The primary cause of cervical cancer is human papillomavirus, a common infection transmitted through sexual intercourse. The cervical cancer vaccines are believed to help prevent HPV.

In December 2015, the World Health Organization issued a statement criticizing the government’s decision to cease recommending the vaccine, saying that “policy decisions based on weak evidence, leading to lack of use of safe and effective vaccines, can result in real harm.”

Generation RX: Psychiatric Drug Abuse (Documentary)


http://www.fulfilldisc.com/index.php/generationrx.html?products_id=72

For decades, scores of doctors, government officials, journalists, and others have extolled the benefits of psychiatric medicines for children. GENERATION RX presents “the rest of the story” and unveils how this era of unprecedented change in Western culture really occurred — and what price has been paid by our society.

International award-winning filmmaker Kevin P. Miller (Let Truth Be The Bias, The Promised Land) “delivers a jaw-dropping emotional ride,” and “weaves a terrifying tale of criminal conspiracy, the mass abandonment of medical ethics, and the routine betrayal of an entire generation.” By employing the expertise of internationally respected professionals from the fields of medicine, ethics, journalism, and academia, GENERATION RX investigates collusion between drug companies and their regulatory watchdogs at the FDA and focuses on the powerful stories of real families who followed the advice of their doctors — and faced devastating consequences for doing so.

Study Finds GSK Vaccine Increases Narcolepsy


More risks associated with GSK drugs

Study Says Genetics Affect Vaccine-Narcolepsy Link
Published September 02, 2011

Finland’s national health institute said on Thursday its latest research on previously found links between children’s narcolepsy and GlaxoSmithKline’s Pandemrix vaccine against swine flu also involved a genetic risk factor.

In Finland, 98 narcolepsy cases have been reported following Pandemrix vaccinations.
The institute said research showed children aged 4-19 who were vaccinated against the H1N1 pandemic flu had a 12.7 times higher risk of experiencing narcolepsy than those who were not.

It has also now found that there was also a genetic factor associated with the risk.

Separately the ministry of social affairs and health said the Finnish pharmaceutical insurance pool would in the next few weeks decide on compensation for those who suffered from narcolepsy following swine flu shots.

A GlaxoSmithKline spokesman said the company had a commitment to ongoing research into narcolepsy — a condition that was poorly understood and characterized.

“GSK is committed to patient safety and continues to work closely with the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and other national regulatory organizations in the best interest of patients,” he said.
Further information from ongoing studies is still needed in order to gain additional insight into the cause of the reported cases of narcolepsy.
“In addition, GSK has committed to conduct further research into any potential association between Pandemrix and narcolepsy and will seek independent expert advice on this research activity, as agreed with the EMA.”
