I totally believe I have received the squalene laced anthrax, but what do you do when your shot records from the Gulf were lost between Kuwait and the U.S? I know I received 1 anthrax shot aboard the U.S.S.Nassau. Immediately afterwards (Oct.1990) I became sick and have been ever since. I have a number of diagnoses and they seem to go right along with the squalene illness'.

FAV 070, FT McCoy, WI, 7 FEB 2003
FAV 070, FT McCoy, WI, 24 FEB 2003
FAV 074, CSC Scania, Iraq, 7 MAY 2003

Not sure if this will help, but I just came across this information in our sons medical records.

Lot FAV087, 22 Oct 2004 Camp Phoenix Afghanistan

Our son became very sick right after the shot. Within 6 month he had developed chronic myelogenous leukemia.

Just found this forum and am hoping to see if there is anyone else out there who has suffered similar symptoms?

A little about me: Served 15 years in the Army, half enlisted, half as an Officer. I never wanted to leave the service, but in 2002 it was apparent that I could no longer serve effectively.

Up until that point, I was walking on water. Honor grad from Ranger School, and just about every other course I attended. Every OER was stellar.

From my medical records I received the followng Anthraz vaccines:

990120 Lot 36 Fort Gordon
990209 Lot 36 Fort Gordon
No symptoms from these shots besides redness and lump

990305 Lot 38 Yongsan Korea
990910 Lot 38 Camp Red Cloud Korea
Lots of symptoms from these shots...

000215 Lot 37 Camp Red Cloud
000816 Lot 37 Camp Red Cloud
Some symptoms...

After the Lot 38 shots, I was never the same. Started having persistent cough and nasal drip. Extreme joint soreness, fatigue, anxiety, and more.

I finished my tour in Korea and was next assigned as an Aide-de-Camp at Fort Huachuca. Suffered from modd swings and persistent rashes near injection sites. Still have six years later.

I ended up being medical separated medically. Within a matter of two years, I went from destined to command a Brigade to being medically discharge. I was separated for extreme swelling and senitivity in my ankles.

I now continue to suffer from reoccuring colds, flu, weight gain, joint soreness, fatigue, and much more.

Most of these symptoms I did not even report as I assumed they were just the flu or cold.

Tired of feeling like crap - every single day.

I served in Desert Storm and recieved the Antrax vacination at Fort Monmouth, NY. Up until recently I have had no known adverse reactions. Last September I took a fall which I thought was just a fall....but have been seeing specialists ever since. It is almost like that fall opened Pandora's box. My bloodwork is highly irregular, and symptoms continue to excalate to the point of mirroring those of ALS and MS. Neurologists, Rheumatologists, Gastroenterologists etc., after so very many tests, have not been able to identify what is wrong, although the symptoms are visible and the results of continued bloodwork are anything but normal.
I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience?

Anthrax (1) 15Aug1999 Bioport FAV037 .5CC
Anthrax (2) 10Sep1999 Bioport FAV024 .5CC
Anthrax (3) 25Sep1999 Bioport FAV024 .5CC
Anthrax (4) 9Mar2000 Bioport FAV047 .5CC

I pulled my medical records personally and have both hand-written and computer generated records of these vaccines and lot numbers. I doubt I'll ever give my records back.

I've had many, many other vaccines, including HEP A during my recruit years, which you alluded to in the book as a possible problem vaccine. I'm willing to submit my entire record if you want it for research purposes.

A few notes -

1) These vaccines were given to a company of infantrymen (myself included) on our way to PSAB and Eskan Village (Saudi Arabia) in support of Operation Southern Watch.

2) Our unit was C Company 1-162 INF, 41st Infantry Brigade, 7th Infantry Division, Army National Guard, based in Gresham, Oregon, at the time.

3) If I remember correctly, the first and last dose were given at Gresham, Oregon, one before and one after we came back. The second and third doses were given at Fort Carson, Colorado.

4) Several of us had immediate reactions to the vaccine. One of our company had some sort of break-out on his skin and seized on a bus while in Fort Carson (Dose two or three). He was sent to the hospital and I never saw him again.

5) I was subsequently sent to Egypt in 2002-2003 with 1-186 INF, 41st INF Brigade. During the deployment, most of the battalion got shigella, which isn't unusual. However, a group came in and offered to have us included in a study to determine efficacy in a shigella vaccine currently being worked on. We were offered monetary compensation for the study, shigella vaccines, and corresponding care. This time we had informed consent. I do not know what was in it, but we did have to give consent. All our anthrax vaccines were required. I did not participate in the shigella program.

6) I had immediate reactions to all the lots listed above. They all hurt like hell and left huge welts for several weeks. I never felt right for several weeks after getting one.

7) Long term, I had aseptic pneumonia in Fort Carson and coughed up blood all over my pillow in my sleep. Only one other person had it about the same time, with identical symptoms. He was a gulf war vet. The rest of the soldiers in my barracks area were not exposed to anthrax vaccine as a general rule and did not have any health problems. Other than that, I had been the shining example of health and fitness. I even went to Ranger School in 2005. However, my health is slowly failing, with aching joints and muscles, nausea, lack of appetite, weight gain, swelling of hands, elbows, ankles, and feet, etc. I have been diagnosed as Bi-Polar with extreme anxiety and PTSD.

Cool The irony is, my mother has lupus. She started recognizing my symptoms as possibly autoimmune before I had ever heard of Gary, Pam, or Robert, let alone the book. I've been hospitalized twice this last year, with about 8 ER visits for the symptoms listed above.

9) I'm seeing a rheumatologist this week, finally. I'll edit this when I find out more.

10) The Army is attempting to discharge me, but I'm still gathering medical data. If they force me out before I have this figured out, I might have a nightmare on my hands with the VA, who already discount what I tell them.

Anyways, hope this helps piece it together. I've tried to be as detailed as I can. Thanks for your help.

Dear RangerSigo:

FAV038 contained squalene. I'm sorry. Your best prospect for getting help, as far as I know, is immunologist Dr. Pamela Asa. She's the expert in this field. Her e-mail is PMBA@aol.com
Please seek her advice.

Sincerely,

Gary Matsumoto

Dear 44balmville:

Your symptoms are consistent with service members who've received injections of anthrax vaccine known to contain squalene. Squalene is an immunostimulant and it is a "self-molecule." A "self-molecule" is immunology-speak for a molecule found in your body, hence "self." Injection with squalene can break your body's natural "tolerance" for its own molecules. When your body starts attacking itself, which is the essence of autoimmunity, you can develop diseases like lupus, MS and rheumatoid arthritis.

Unless Tulane University Medical School can find anti-squalene antibodies in your blood sera, there is no way to confirm you were injected with squalene other than confirmation from the Department of Defense. I do not think the latter will be forthcoming.

The best you can do under the current circumstances, I think, is seek treatment from an immunologist/rheumatologist. If you are diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, it may be manageable, though, as far as I know, not curable.

My best wishes to you.

Sincerely,
Gary Matsumoto

5 Dec 03 FAV077 Hurlburt Field, FL
22 Jun 04 FAV083 Hurlburt Field, FL


Dear Buckeye23:

The FDA has only confirmed the presence of squalene in six vaccine lots FAV008, FAV020, FAV030, FAV38, FAV043 and FAV047. Other service members injected with the same lots you've listed either developed autoimmune-associated symptoms or full-blown autoimmune diseases. I urge you to contact Ph.D. immunologist, Dr. Pamela Asa, and ask for her guidance and advice. She is the only immunologist I know with extensive experience treating adjuvant-induced autoimmunity.

My best wishes to you.

Sincerely,
Gary Matsumoto

Dear AaronR:

Thanks for writing. As you are probably are aware from postings on this site there are only six anthrax vaccine lost confirmed to contain nanodoses of squalene. The Department of Defense refers to the dosages as "contamination." Whether deliberate dosing or accidental contamination, squalene in any amount can be dangerous when injected. The body responds to nanogram doses of many substances. Pharmaceutical companies administer hormones in nanogram dosages. The immune system reacts to molecules, which are exponentially smaller than a nanogram of anything.

Some service members injected with FAV075 have developed autoimmunity, as documented by Tulane University Medical School.

As I've urged others, please contact Dr. Pamela Asa, a Ph.d. immunologist, who can offer you the best advice available. Her e-mail is PMBA@aol.com.

Sincerely,
Gary Matsumoto

Dear StaffSgt Payne:

As you're probably aware, many cases of aseptic pneumonia observed in troops deployed in Operation Iraqi Freedom were fatal.

Troops who never deployed, but received injections with anthrax vaccine, also developed fatal cases of aseptic pneumonia.

I wish there were a way for you to get a more precise fix on what is happening to you.

Given your vaccination history, it is possible that were injected with squalene, which is known to induce autoimmunity in animals.

Please seek advice from immunologist Dr. Pamela Asa. I don't know of anyone who knows more about this subject. Her e-mail is PMBA@aol.com.

Sincerely,

Gary Matsumoto

I was given lot number FAV071 twice at Cannon AFB, NM. Shot 4: 19 May 2003 and shot 5: 19 Nov 2003. I have tons of problems now that I didn't have before this. Sad Like mysthenia gravis...which affects my muscles. I can't even eat food normal. I was given a blood test and it came up negative. Shocked And terrible problems with my memory. People tell stories of things I have done or said and I don't recall any of it. I JUST bought your book online and am looking forward to reading it. I have also experienced what I would imagine a heart attack feels like a number of times. Sad I read that on one of these pages by someone else. they said it was unresolved abdominal pain the first time. The VA calls them panic attacks. They have woken me up in my sleep!!! I just looked it up, it was on page 6..by arizroughrider@yahoo.com.

My friend Vinnie, who just shared this info with me this morning, also had two FAV071s at Cannon AFB, NM. Shots 4 & 5 respectfully. He was just diagnosed as a diabetic last year. Type I at age 26!
