High dose Edmonston Zagreb (EZ) measles vaccine (quotes)
"From 1989 to 1991, Kaiser Permanent along with the L.A. County Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), injected over 700 "mostly minority" babies with unlicensed experimental vaccines with fraudulently-obtained consent from the parents. One of the vaccines used, Edmonston-Zagreb high-titer, had already obtained a notorious reputation overseas for killing almost one out of every 13 babies in closely controlled studies in the Third World. In particular, use of the vaccine had been closely associated with an increased death rate among infants in Senegal, Guinea Bissau and Haiti before their second birthday. At least one baby in the L.A. County experiment died within this same two year window. When the final story is told, this will likely be one of the most scandalous affairs in the history of human experimentation to rival or exceed that of the German Nazis, the Tuskegee Syphilis Study or the DOE radiation exposure experiments."---Keidi Obi Awadu (Outrage, The Conscious Rasta Report, Aug 1996)
"In an experiment to find out of they could give high-potency Edmonston Zagreb (EZ) measles vaccine to babies as young as four months old [completing disregarding developmental neurology and lack of myelinization in the nervous system of babies] in order to overwhelm their natural maternal antibodies and replace them with vaccine-induced antibodies, medical "researchers" at the CDC and Johns Hopkins University injected thousands of babies in the Third World with the experimental vaccine that reportedly caused chronic immune suppression and the deaths of an unknown number of babies. Also, in the United States, with the help of Kaiser Permanente, more than 1500 six-month old black and Hispanic babies in inner city Los Angeles were "enrolled" in the experiment starting in June 1990. [ During the administration of president and ex-CIA director George Bush.] The study was halted in October 1991, after more than one year of genocidal activity, after repeated reports from vaccine trial sites in Africa that girl babies were dying in higher than expected numbers six months to three years after injection. [ A less-than-admirable population control effort.] "--Leading Edge http://www.cco.net/~trufax/vaccine/0696.html Based on NVIC Vaccine Report 0696 Rec 9/3/96
"Using kids as guinea pigs in potentially harmful
vaccine experiments is every parents' worst nightmare. This actually happened in 1989-1991
when Kaiser Permanente of Southern California and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
jointly conducted a measles vaccine experiment. Without proper parental disclosure,
the Yugoslavian-made "high titre" Edmonston-Zagreb measles vaccine
was tested on 1,500 poor, primarily black and Latino, inner city children in
Los Angeles. Highly recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO),
the high-potency experimental vaccine was previously injected into infants in Mexico,
Haiti, and Africa. It was discontinued in these countries when it was discovered that the
children were dying in large numbers.
Unbelievably, the measles vaccine caused long-term suppression of the children's immune system for six months up to three years. As a result, the immunodepressed children died from other diseases in greater numbers than children who had never received the vaccine. Tragically, African girl babies in the experiment were given twice the dose of boys, and therefore suffered a higher death rate. The WHO pulled the vaccine off the market in 1992.
Ironically, the E-Z measles vaccine tested by Kaiser on minority babies was supposed to increase immunity in younger infants. Instead, the vaccine produced the opposite effect. A Los Angeles Times editorial (June 20, 1996) assured readers that "none of the 1,500 was injured by the unlicensed vaccine" and called upon the CDC to ensure that experiments like the E-Z measles vaccine could never occur again."--Alan Cantwell MD
"Worth Coolie Prost of Arlington, Virginia, is a biomedical research consultant and medical ethicist who terms what happened with the EZ measles vaccine a "silent tragedy." She reminds us that human experimentation has been performed on vulnerable populations throughout history, with informed consent standards being repeatedly ignored, despite laws designed to prevent this from happening. .........It is very unlikely that any of those deaths would ever have been linked to the vaccine ("high titre" Edmonston-Zagreb measles vaccine), since deaths were delayed. They didnt begin until six months after vaccination and they continued up until four years after vaccination. Additionally, the deaths were not from measles. Babies died of infections, diarrhea, malnutrition, and all the other things that Third World babies usually die of, because what the vaccine did in some babies, particularly girls, was cause a broad immunosuppression."---Worth Coolie Prost (Gary Null vaccine report)In the 1980s, the World Health Organization declared measles a life-threatening illness in Third World countries. To lower infant mortality rates, they recommended that the high-titer EZ measles vaccine be used on infants younger than 15 months old. ......Not only did the experiment prove ineffective, it had disastrous consequences. Says Prost: "In 1987, four large studies - .... using the very-high-titer EZ measles vaccine were sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Johns Hopkins University, and their Department of International Health. These studies used concentrations of the EZ vaccine in doses 10 to 500 times the standard in babies as young as four months old. Studies were done in Haiti, Senegal, Mexico, and Guinea-Bissau." Prost refers to this incident as a huge, silent disaster for Third World countries and inner city USA. Had the experiment not been stopped - largely through the efforts of one person - consequences would have been far worse, as deaths were not clearly associated with the vaccine. She elaborates: "It is very unlikely that any of those deaths would ever have been linked to the vaccine, since deaths were delayed. They didnt begin until six months after vaccination and they continued up until four years after vaccination. Additionally, the deaths were not from measles. Babies died of infections, diarrhea, malnutrition, and all the other things that Third World babies usually die of, because what the vaccine did in some babies, particularly girls, was cause a broad immunosuppression... Its important to point out that, at least in Haiti, the study was done on a population that included a number of HIV-positive infants. So there were children given this very-high-dose vaccine who were already known to be immunocompromised."
