This week saw the release of a new Accepted Manuscript from Oxford University Press for the Infectious Diseases Society of America . The paper highlights a critical issue associated with an mRNA Covid-19 vaccine similar to the Pfizer vaccine we are using here in NZ.
In a nutshell, it shows that SARS-CoV-2 proteins generated from the vaccine were present in the plasma of vaccine recipients (plasma is the colourless fluid part of blood, lymph, or milk, in which red or white blood cells or fat globules are suspended). These proteins are not supposed to be in the blood.
Whilst at first glance this finding may not be immediately alarming to the average person, it is of vital importance that we understand the consequences of such a discovery.
The manuscript authors outline that these findings are new and not previously identified in any of the prior vaccine studies or clinical trials:
“..evidence of systemic detection of spike and S1 protein production from the mRNA-1273 vaccine is significant and has not yet been described in any vaccine study..” “SARS-CoV-2 proteins were measured in longitudinal plasma samples collected from 13 participants who received two doses of mRNA-1273 vaccine. 11 of 13 participants showed detectable levels of SARS-CoV-2 protein as early as day one after first vaccine injection.”
Off the mark, we see that the sample size is small. However, when the majority of participants (11 out of 13; ~84%) show detectable levels of vaccine-derived viral proteins (S1 subunit, a component of the spike) in their plasma, it would seem wise to keep digging and it most certainly warrants further investigation.
The S1 subunit is thought to be able to enter the blood as a result of special enzymes freeing the spike fragments from the surface of mRNA vaccine-affected cells. This is of particular interest as the S1 subunit levels have been correlated with the severity of infection in Covid-19 patients.
The authors observed the presence of intact spike protein in three subjects at ~ 15 days after vaccination and attributed this additional observation to cellular immune responses triggered by T-cell activation, resulting in the direct killing of cells with the liberation of spike protein into the bloodstream.
What does that mean in plain English? First, we have the T-cells, which are a type of white blood cell that bind to and kill infected cells. Next, there are the cells that are decorated with the spikes generated by the body in response to the mRNA vaccine. The scientists are positing that:
- The T-cells are attaching to and breaking open the cells decorated with spikes in the process of destroying them.
- Given that these cells have temporarily (theoretically) been turned into spike factories, the destruction of these cells, in turn, releases the spikes within the cells out into the bloodstream (where they are free to cause havoc).
THE USE OF THEORETICAL MODELS
The theoretical model (Fig. 1) indicates that the spike protein should not be detectable in the bloodstream of the vaccinated subjects. Observation confirms that the contrary is true. The manuscript authors quite rightly conclude that they are uncertain about the clinical implications of this and that further research is required.
This highlights the problems that one might encounter when attempting to apply a simple schematic model to a complex system. Theory often fails due to the presence of variables that simply haven’t been considered.
You don’t know what you don’t know. Or perhaps more accurately, you won’t find what you refuse to look for.
MORE EXPERTS JOIN THE DISCUSSION
The new finding of spike protein in plasma is said to be supported by official information from the Japanese Regulatory Agency gained by viral immunologist, Dr. Byram Bridle and colleagues. In a recent interview , Bridle asserted:
“It’s the first time ever that scientists have been privy to seeing where these messenger RNA vaccines go after vaccination. In other words: Is it a safe assumption that it stays in the shoulder muscle? The short answer is absolutely not, it’s very disconcerting. The spike protein gets into the blood, circulates through the blood in individuals over several days post-vaccination. It accumulates once it gets in the blood…in a number of tissues such as the spleen, the bone marrow, the liver, the adrenal glands.. One that’s a particular concern for me is (that) it accumulates at quite high concentrations in the ovaries..”
In line with other study findings, Dr. Bridle goes on to state:
“We have known for a long time that the spike protein is a pathogenic protein. It is a toxin. It can cause damage in our body if it gets into circulation. Now, we have clear-cut evidence that the vaccines that make…the cells in our deltoid muscles.. manufacture this protein, the vaccine itself plus the protein gets into blood circulation. When in circulation the spike protein can bind to the receptors that are on our platelets, and the cells that line our blood vessels. When that happens, it can do one of two things it can either cause platelets to clump and that can lead to clotting. That’s exactly why we’ve been seeing clotting disorders associated with these vaccines. It can also lead to bleeding. And of course, where the heart’s involved it’s a key part of the cardiovascular system. It’s why we’re seeing heart problems. The protein can also cross the blood brain barrier and cause neurological damage. That’s why also, in the fatal cases of blood clots, many times this is seen in the brain..”
Dr. Bridle goes on to describe another study underway that is investigating how this issue also appears to be negatively impacting infants via the breastmilk of their vaccinated mothers.
He is not alone in his concern. Other experienced medical professionals are also speaking out and warning of the risks associated with these experimental vaccines. Dr. Roger Hodkinson is one of them. He is a medical specialist in pathology and was previously an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Alberta, amongst other notable achievements.
Dr. Hodkinson highlights many worrying points in a lengthy interview he gave this week . He first points out what should be obvious, especially to our health authorities – that individuals have unique health profiles and will respond as such. On the development of mRNA vaccines he says:
“One of the biggest problems that they had was what we call dose, how much of the stuff should we inject? And, you know, we don’t just look differently, our genetic composition is different. The ability of our lymphatic system is different. And so some people will massively over produce these spike proteins, some of which will escape into the general circulation.”
He then goes on to explain the mechanism of the interaction between the spike protein and the body:
“Only..three days ago, was that proven for the first time. That indeed the spike protein is leaking out into the peripheral blood. Once it gets there in sufficient concentration, it is attracted to very specific receptors for that spike protein (ACE2) that line the inside of every blood vessel in the body, and is also present in other tissues that I’ll come to. That spike protein attaches to the inside of those blood vessels, and that introduces what we call a coagulation cascade – it results in the thrombus, a blood clot that may or may not completely obstruct that vessel. That is the reason why women are coming down with these rare blood clots in their brain, in the veins of the leg, and it quite likely explains the abnormal menstrual periods in women who have just been vaccinated, particularly those who are in the menopausal age group, because the expression of the ACE2 receptor in the lining of the uterus, the endometrium increases with age.”
Dr. Hodkinson continues to explore the other locations of the body where this ACE2 receptor is particularly concentrated and therefore more at risk of damage from the spike protein:
“The expression of this..ACE2 receptor is also present in high concentration in the placenta and the testes, not the ovary, but the testes. So far as the placenta is concerned, if there were an attack on the placenta, because of the spike protein attaching to these receptors that could obviously result in miscarriage. That, sad as it is, might only be a one time event. It’s hard to postulate that it would be continual, with subsequent pregnancies, although there are reasons why that could happen, and all the more reason to take you longer than six months (to study the vaccine). But what really worries me, without wishing to scare the population, is the reality that this receptor is present in the testes. And it’s not just the testes, it’s actually on the cells that produce spermatozoa. Now, obviously, you cannot test for that, within six months. You have to go through quite a period of time looking at male fertility, spermatozoa counts, the success or not of pregnancy in women and couples who are trying to get pregnant. That obviously is going to take a few years. So why are we doing this? What if there’s a plausible potential problem of that scale.. with those implications because an attack on the testes, for all we know, might not be a one time thing, but could be sufficiently damaging to produce permanent male infertility or a significant reduction in fertility.”
Those with a keen eye will have noticed that these two experts differ in their assessment of the impact upon the ovaries. It would be great to speak with them further to explore the data and evidence informing their opinions.
HOW THESE FINDINGS RELATE TO THE SALK STUDY
A recent Salk Institute study  emphasised the role of the spike protein as a primary driver of the disease process associated with Covid-19. Researchers were able to create an experimental “pseudovirus” that incorporated the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein to determine whether the spike protein would be sufficient to produce features of the disease, minus the other elements of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. When the “pseudovirus” was administered to experimental animals it was found that it was able to induce damage to the lungs and arteries.
In short, spike protein present in the blood is able to cause serious damage throughout the body.
Given the potential for injury to the arteries (vascular damage), it would seem sensible to suggest that our efforts to produce a safe vaccine should aim to segregate the spike protein from the bloodstream so that the injuries described in this study are unable to eventuate. It would appear that the mRNA vaccines have failed on this count.
For months now, many scientists, doctors, and medical professionals have been sounding the alarm about pressing forward at warp-speed with a rushed, experimental “vaccine”. The unrestrained enthusiasm for such a relatively untested product has been wildly concerning for many – like watching a train wreck in slow motion.
We have witnessed our so-called experts mock and deride anyone seeking to raise the alarm or daring to suggest that an ‘abundance of precaution’ approach should be applied when considering injecting the entire country, and indeed the whole world, with a novel medicinal product that we have zero medium to long term safety data on (and very little robust short-term safety data either). The notion of informed consent was hurled out the window months ago, and the level of willful negligence from the authorities has upset medical professionals and laypeople alike.
One of our prominent experts, Dr. Helen Petousis-Harris, recently made the following claim in a piece ironically named “The Whole Truth”:
“The vaccine works once it is injected into the thick, fleshy muscle of the upper arm. From there, it induces a response in your immune system. Essentially, it trains your immune system to identify the virus and fight it off. It does not enter your blood and instead, most of the action occurs in cells at the injection site and in the nearby lymph nodes.” 
These statements echo earlier sentiments expressed in another article from May 2021 where Dr. Petousis-Harris was joined by a colleague, Dr. Alison Campbell, for a “debunking session”. In the damage control article  based on the Salk study findings, both experts are clear in their message that the spike protein doesn’t enter the bloodstream.
One can’t help but wonder where the scientific evidence was for these statements? Were they assumed? Theoretical? At this stage, shouldn’t we be offered solid research to back up such strong assertions? Why aren’t our reporters demanding proof?
Without evidence, we are being asked to engage in blind faith, appeal to authority arguments, and accept misinformation as fact.
Statements from experts such as those above seem geared towards subduing the public into a delirious slumber of “Don’t think for yourself – relax and let the experts do your thinking for you”. The consequences of the population remaining passive in power-imbalanced relationships like this could be catastrophic.
We are grateful that scientists have opted to study the systemic distribution of the spike protein in the bodies of vaccinated people. However, we have a serious issue with the fact that such a study has only been carried out many months into a global Covid-19 vaccination campaign when 1.8 billion people have already received an experimental Covid-19 vaccine. Could such a discovery be a species-threatening event?
We believe that the detection of spike protein in the plasma and the discovery of harm caused by circulating spike protein in the bloodstream, alongside the explanations offered and questions posed by these two qualified experts, Dr. Bridle and Dr. Hodkinson are worthy of additional investigation, discussion, and reflection – especially from those leading the charge with the vaccine rollout in NZ.
It is not acceptable for the public to be encouraged to discount research and analysis such as this based on flimsy messaging about assumptions, consensus science, or personal ad hominem attacks. It is not anti-vaccine to seek to discuss the science or the identified and theoretical risks, especially when the health and wellbeing of our entire nation are at stake. It is simply common sense.
NZ has a large component of our population who have now already received at least one Covid-19 vaccine. We need to be testing a decent subsection to see if these results can be replicated here and whether or not spike protein can indeed be found in the blood of those who have recently received a Covid-19 jab. It is time for our experts to remember their ethical obligations and to do the right thing.
We lay that challenge before them now: Dr. Nikki Turner, Dr. Helen Petousis-Harris, Dr. Siouxsie Wiles, Dr. Micheal Baker, Prof. Shaun Hendy, Dr. Alison Campbell, and Dr. Ashley Bloomfield, what will YOU personally do to ensure this research is urgently carried out?
