Mr. Matsumoto,

I have not been tested for autoimmunity and my doctors don't quite understand the issues with the Anthrax vaccine. I have not been able to find any contact information for Dr. Asa; however, I did send an email to one of her colleagues at Tulane Dr. Robert Gary.

If you still correspond with her would you mind passing along my contact information? Ron Tibbs / 214-417-7228 / rons-mail@earthlink.net.

Thank you again,

Ron

Dear sargekacz: While you await a reply from Dr. Asa, I found this entry in United States Patent 6,299,884 for an Adjuvant formulation comprising a submicron oil droplet emulsion. The "submicron oil droplet emulsion" is MF59, which is squalene in water (where the squalene composition is 5% of the volume). Scientists working for Chiron Corporation filed the application for this patient on 7 April 1995.

Under the heading "Specific Embodiments" is the following entry:

Quote:
It is essential that the oil be metabolized by the host to which it is administered, otherwise the oil component may cause abscesses, granulomas or even carcinomas, or (when used in veterinary practice) may make the meat of vaccinated birds and animals unacceptable for human consumption due to the deleterious effect the unmetabolized oil may have on the consumer [Highlighting and italics mine].


"Metabolized" refers to the means by which a "host" processes a substance, without harm, and appropriates or eliminates the constituents of that substance.

Scientific data, published in peer reviewed journals, shows that injected squalene is not metabolized like food passing through your GI tract. The squalene droplets are metabolized only with respect to the fact that immune cells interact with those droplets, transporting them through the lymphatic system, forming antibodies to them and remembering them (memory is one of the unique characteristics of the immune system). In other words, squalene molecules are not broken down or transformed into something that the body can then use or discard.

When researchers at the Polish Academy of Sciences injected squalene into rats, the droplets accumulated in the rats' myelin sheaths (the insulation around their nerves) in their peripheral nervous systems, and in the neurons of their brain cortexes. Here's the reference and abtract for the first paper, published in 1997:

Quote:
Smialek M, Gajkowska B, Ostrowski RP, Piotrowski P, Experimental squalene encephaloneuropathy in the rat, Folia Neuropathol, 1997;35(4):262-4.

Department of Neuropathology, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warszawa.

ABSTRACT: To investigate the influence of squalene on the nervous system, adult male Wistar rats were injected with squalene subcutaneously with 20 g/kg of the body weight for 4 consecutive days. After 7 or 30 days from the initiation of the experiment, brain and ischiadic nerves were harvested for electron microscopy. Squalene affected mostly PNS targeting Schwann cells and myelin sheaths. Accumulation of lipid-like droplets in the myelin sheaths in the PNS and in the neurons in the brain cortex, hypertrophy of endothelium, and sometimes endothelial apoptosis in blood vessels, and increased synthesis of collagen in the ischiadic nerve were characteristic for developed squalene encephaloneuropathy. [Highlighting and italics mine]


Here's the reference and abstract for the second paper, published two years later:

Quote:
Gajkowska B, Smialek M, Ostrowski RP, Piotrowski P, Frontczak-Baniewicz M, The experimental squalene encephaloneuropathy in the rat, Exp Toxicol Pathol, 1999 Jan;51(1):75-80.

The Laboratory of the Ultrastructure of the Nervous System, Medical Research Center, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw.

ABSTRACT: Accumulation of squalene in the CNS is observed after administration of tellurium and squalene has been proposed to be a mediator of tellurium encephaloneuropathy. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of squalene on the central and peripheral nervous systems in rat at the ultrastructural level. Squalene was administered at a dose of 20 g/kg body weight, once daily for 4 days, and the animals were sacrificed 7 days and 30 days after the initiation of the experiment. After 7 days a mild swelling of mitochondria and dilation of the Golgi complex cisterns in few neurons in the cerebral cortex and hippocampus were observed. The swelling of astrocytes and their processes was also seen. Some myelin sheaths in the cerebral white matter were disintegrated. In the peripheral nervous system (the sciatic nerve), a damage of the Schwann cells, a destruction of the myelin sheaths, and lipid-like deposits between myelin lamellae causing a secondary compression of axons were present. Squalene administration caused a stimulation of fibroblast to synthesize collagen and an activation of macrophages in the perineurium. After 30 days, the lipid-like material was present in some neurons as well as in the myelin sheaths in the central nervous system. Endothelial cells were hypertrophic and a few demonstrated features of apoptosis. Endothelial cell hypertrophy caused a narrowing of vessel lumen associated with an aggregation of blood morphological elements. Disturbances in myelination and swelling of astrocytic processes persisted in the central nervous system. In the peripheral nervous system, lipid-like deposits were localized in some fibroblasts and extracellularly between the collagen fibers in the perineurium. In conclusion, our electron microscopic studies indicate that squalene produces characteristic pathological changes both in the central and peripheral nervous systems. However, these alterations differ in some aspects (changes in endothelia, accumulation of lipid-like material) from the known features of tellurium encephaloneuropathy. [Highlighting and italics mine]


I italicized the information in these abstracts that are relevant to your illness; though exactly why is not immediately obvious.

The Polish researchers discovered that the so-called "metabolizable" squalene did not break down when injected into rats; it stuck around in inappropriate places in their bodies - places that were clearly bad for the rats. The squalene deposits in the rat nervous systems and brains were associated with severe, irreversible neurological injury. What sort of physical injury does the government now admit [thirteen years after the war] to detecting in Gulf War veterans? Neurological.

The Polish data is consistent with Chiron's. Chiron has reported that squalene injected into mice can be found in the mouse inguinal lymph nodes 48 hours after injection. In other words, when you inject squalene, it hangs around, intact, in places where you don't particularly want it.

Here's how this potentially affects you. The squalene injected into rats didn't get metabolized safely. The injected squalene stuck around. It got transported from the injection site to unwanted places, the nerves and brain, and deposited there. It was also connected to subsequent neurological damage in rats.

So let's think about injected squalene in relation to your cancer. According to Chiron's patent for its squalene-in-water adjuvant, MF59, why is it essential that injected oil get metabolized?

Quote:
It is essential that the oil be metabolized by the host to which it is administered, otherwise the oil component may cause abscesses, granulomas or even carcinomas,


It is essential because non-metabolized oil can cause "carcinomas." Carcinomas are what? Cancer.

Government scientists knew this as far back as the 1950s. When they conducted follow-ups on Army troops at Fort Dix who were immunized with an experimental flu vaccine containing light mineral oil, the government scientists looked for what? Excess "collagen disease" (autoimmune diseases like lupus and scleroderma), and excess "neoplasms." What are neoplasms? They are tumors, which can either be benign or cancerous.

Do you follow my logic? Based on data published by Chiron Corporation, and scientists working for the U.S. and Polish governments, injected oil, which the body does not metabolize, can cause what? It can cause cancer. Injected squalene is not metabolized in the same way squalene is metabolized when your body makes it. When your body makes squalene, it is inside of cells (not floating around as free molecules in the bloodstream as DOD maintains) and it is quickly "cyclized" or transformed into something else the body can use. Again, this doesn't happen to injected squalene. Injected squalene sticks around, intact.

This does not prove your cancer was caused by an oil adjuvant, specifically, squalene that may have been added to anthrax vaccine lot # FAV 041 (squalene's presence in this lot has not been proven by gas chromatographic/mass spectrometry testing, although injection with lot #FAV 041 has induced antibodies to squalene). But it is data, along with the "temporal association" between vaccination and the onset of your cancer, which suggests that it could have been.

Sincerely,
Gary Matsumoto

Gary,

How do I get in touch w/ Dr. Asa to talk details of the tests I should get? Are these simple blood tests or do I have to go to a Rhemuotologist?

I am compliling a much bigger list for your Lot listing. I have come across a few people here with the same lot numbers, but they were stationed at DOVER (lot 047) at the time of their shots. I have become friends with a guy who has 4 shots from 4 different bad lots.

Here is a question for all those who read this. What kind of disciplinary action may/could/cn be taken against an individual who does not take any more shots. I know the series is suspended at this time but from what I am reading the President is being pushed to overrule the federal judges decesion on giving the shots? If I come to the table with all of my documented information in my medical records, (which I have) how much could one be punished for refusal to get the shots if it is ever put back into effect?

Dear USAFFirefighter: I cannot post Dr. Asa's email address or phone numbers here, but if you can provide your contact information in this forum, I will make sure she gets it.

Some of the standard tests for autoimmunity include anti-nuclear antibodies, anti-striated muscle, complement levels (C3) and anti-double stranded DNA. A general practitioner - or specialists in internal medicine or rheumatology - would probably be reluctant to order such tests unless you have symptoms that are consistent with immunological dysfunction.

Because of the Sullivan decision, you are entitled to decline any offer to give you more anthrax shots. While Assistant Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz has requested that the outgoing Health Secretary, Tommy Thompson, approve a resumption of the anthrax immunizations, I do not believe Thompson has the authority to do so.

As I understand it, The Project BioShield Act of 2004 permits a U.S. Health Secretary to declare an "actual or potential" public health emergency and thereby clear any obstacles to administering experimental medicines and vaccines called INDs (investigational new drugs) to civilians. Unless I missed something (and I could have), the provisions of The Project BioShield Act do not apply to military personnel. So Thompson, in theory, cannot intervene in this matter.

Permission to administer INDs to service members, without informed consent, must come, according to the existing regulations (Title 21, Part 50.23), from the President.

As I read the current federal regulations and DOD directives, there is one potential loophole, but Wolfowitz has not attempted to exploit it, which indicates to me that it may not be exploitable.

Prior to the Sullivan decision, military personnel who refused the shot received administrative punishment (Article 15s) and court martials. The bad news is this: if the Sullivan decision is somehow circumvented, unless you can document a serious illness and thereby justify an exemption from further anthrax immunizations, you will have to complete the series.

Sincerely,
Gary Matsumoto

Call anytime

Thanks for the help. I have already received all 6 shots and am working on boosters. I just do not want anymore crap shot into my body at this point. Like I said a while back I have been seen for memory problems, I don't need anymore. I just added another "I forgot" episode to my book. My wife bought my daughter a watch for christmas. I bought her one 2 days ago, showed it to her and she rambled on about the other watch. Of course I had no idea what she was talking about and apparently we had a nice conversation a month ago about the watch she bought for our daughter. Sad part is, I have no memory of that......So the less crap getting shot into the better. Before I know it I will only know my name because it is on my uniform.

Thanks

http://www.washtimes.com/upi-breaking/20041223-050846-2129r.htm

This article talks abot the legal aspects being raised, here's a quote:

Lawrence Halloran, staff director and counsel for the House Subcommittee on National Security, said he did not know how, "under the law as written, HHS could grant Emergency Use Authorization for an approved drug, for an unapproved use and not include as a condition of that authority the obligation to notify recipients of the right to refuse it."

Halloran also told UPI: "DOD somehow thinks that HHS can do that. Under what circumstances I don't know. They seem to have some legal theory they're not sharing with us yet."

PostPosted: Fri Dec 24, 2004 5:29 pm    Post subject: Reply to Darrell, RE: "SAV 070" Reply with quote

Dear Darrell: I'm not 100% sure about "SAV" 070. All BioPort lot numbers are preceded by the letters "FAV." If you meant FAV 070, then I'm sorry to say that there is a potential problem with this lot.

Tulane University Medical School believes FAV 070 is aan anthrax vaccine lot that may contain squalene because military personnel injected with it, and no other, have developed anti-squalene antibodies. Based on Tulane's data, with very few exceptions, only people injected with squalene develop these antibodies.

Some people who've had major surgery, but have not, to the best of their knowledge been injected with squalene, have tested positive for these antibodies; Tulane does not know why. Otherwise, only people injected with anthrax vaccine, anthrax vaccine confirmed by FDA testing to contain squalene - or injected with Chiron's squalene emulsion, MF59, in an NIH trial for an experimental herpes vaccine - have tested positive for anti-squalene antibodies.

If lot FAV 070 does, in fact, contain squalene you may take comfort in knowing that some people injected with this oil will not develop the antibodies or illness. How your immune system responds to squalene partly depends on your unique genetic makeup.

Think of these responses to squalene as a curve. At one end of this curve are people who will be hypersenstive to injection with this oil; a nanodose in just one shot might ruin them. At the other end of this curve are people who might get a massive dose of squalene and not suffer anything at all. The majority of people, in theory, will fall somewhere in between.

There is no way to predict what you can expect at this point. There isn't enough data. No controlled study on the effects of injecting squalene into human beings has ever been done. No such study may ever be done. Given the fact that debilitating and incurable autoimmune diseases have occurred in four species of animals injected with squalene (five, if you include Tulane's data in humans), who would volunteer to be a subject in such a study?

I urge you, however, not to worry excessively. If you have not experienced symptoms associated with Gulf War syndrome, I wouldn't worry about your injections.

If, on the other hand, you've suffered recurring rashes, chronic fatigue, joint and muscle pain, severe muscle cramping and/or twitching (fasciculations), short term memory loss, dizziness, vertigo and tinnitus (incessant ringing in your ears), I would urge you to consult your physician about these symptoms, and raise the possibility with him/her of getting tested for autoimmunity.

I am hoping that you are well and that for you - someone who has not reported in your posting any problems following immunization with anthrax vaccine lot F(?)AV 070 - any further discussion about the dangers of injecting squalene will be unnecessary.

A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.

Sincerely,
Gary Matsumoto

Dear USAFFirefighter: I've emailed your contact information to Dr. Asa. Concerning your memory problems: a lot of military personnel injected with squalene-positive anthrax vaccine have experienced the same thing. Short-term memory loss is one of the most commonly reported symptoms among those injected with squalene-positive anthrax vaccine. When I last visited Dover AFB, similarly afflicted Air Force personnel at this base said they were putting Post It notes on their dashboards to remind themselves of errands they needed to do. Otherwise they'd forget what they needed to do between the time they pulled out of their driveways and the time they arrived at the mall.

I'll try to get Dr. Asa to email you today. If she doesn't have the time, she'll get in touch after Christmas.

A Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.

Sincerely,
Gary Matsumoto

I can answer you though this was sent to Gary .... YES. April 1991 at SanDiego Naval Training Center I received the anthrax vaccine FAV020 prior to being sent to USS Independence, an aircraft carrier now decommissioned which became a member of 7th Fleet Yokosuka, Japan. Re-verified per microfiche of my service records. You need to get an ELISA CFIDS panel done to verify viral infection and abnormal titers, part of autoimmune disorders for viral infections like EBV/CMV/HHV-6 and mycoplasma. Medical Diagnostics Laboratory www.mdlab.com, best in the world and recommended by Dr. Garth Nicolson and NASA. Dr. Asa is overwhelmed with requests for blood tests, so you may wait a lot longer than you are comfortable with and allow yourself to feel emotions misplaced towards her. You can do this on your own. Just call them for help at their toll free number.

If interested in what this has done to me and blood tests/results to seek out and more please visit http://www.gulfwarvets.com/cgi-bin/forumdisplay.cgi?action=topics&forum=Gulf+War+Illness&number=1&DaysPrune=1000&LastLogin=

My online identity is the same as what I used here. I refuse to go any further publically. I have already had computer viruses destroy my computer where my hard drive had to be completely reformatted, along with vicious spam from Africa.
