FDA Approves Meningitis Vaccine After Big Pharma Conducts Human Experiments

Susanne Posel, Contributor

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given GlaxoSmithKilne (GSK) their approval of the MenHibrix vaccine(MHV), which is meant for infants between the ages of 6 weeks to 18 months. This vaccine is a dangerous mixture of the meningococcal disease and Hib disease.

MHV will be manufactured in Rixensart, a Belgium-based arm of GSK Biologicals.

In 2010 and 2011, the FDA rejected MHV. GSK claims that they have “resolved” the FDA’s concerns about the necessity, potency and efficiency of MHV. This simply accepted GSK’s word that they have taken care of the vaccine’s issues. The FDA does not require more proof than that.

In fact, the FDA’s standard practice is to regulate drugs after they have been approved, rather than just making sure they are safe before releasing them out to the public.

In 2008, the FDA admitted that there is no regulatory checking of safety of trials. The FDA relied solely on the data provided them from the drug makers themselves.

Furthermore, the FDA does not check or regulate cosmetics prior to their release to the markets for the public to purchase. They leave the safety responsibility to the cosmetic corporations to essentially regulate themselves.


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), infants are most at risk for contracting bacterial meningitis, which is an infection that attacks the thin lining surrounding the brain and spinal cord.

Last month, the CDC was involved in a propaganda campaign to coerce Americans to start receiving immunizations after the recent decline reported by doctors across the country.

Karen Midthum, director of the center for biologics at the FDA stated that:
With today’s approval of Menhibrix, there is now a combination vaccine that can be used to prevent potentially life-threatening Hib disease and two types of meningococcal disease in children. It is the first meningococcal vaccine that can be given starting as young as six weeks of age.
The MHV will be administered as a four-dose vaccine that the CDC recommended is added to infant’s immunizations schedule.

Dr. Leo Friedland, vice president of clinical and medical affairs at GSK North American division says:
(Meningitis) is one of those diseases that although not common, when it occurs it’s absolutely devastating and horrible. It presents to the doctor when a child just looks ill, and within 18 to 24 hours, they’re on the deathbed in the hospital. . . To be able to have a vaccine to prevent meningitis is really a great day.
The MHV targets only the C and Y strains of meningococcal bacteria and the Hib bacteria (a.k.a. Haemophilus influenzae type b).

  • GSK says there is no vaccine in the US to treat the B strain of the meningococcal bacteria.
  • GSK is planning on administering 1.1 billion doses of MHV to 173 countries in developed and developing countries.
  • GSK maintains that MHV was evaluated on 7,500 infants and toddlers in the U.S., Mexico and Austria.

Pfizer, one of GSK’s biggest competitors, was part of a campaign in Southern Africa and India where they were conducting experiments with their meningitis vaccine on underdeveloped children in nations where their access to healthcare is severely limited.

This experiment was perfectly timed. While a meningitis epidemic broke out in Nigeria, Pfizer happen to coincide this problem with the reveal of Trovan, which was distributed to Nigerians in response to the “outbreak”.

To receive the Food and Drug Administration’s certification of approval, Pfizer used Africa as their clinical trial laboratory to produce the proof they needed to make Trovan a profitable endeavor.

The St. Louis University’s (SLU) Center for Vaccine Development (CVD) is conducting a study with Pfizer, to create a vaccine for meningitis specifically targeting children.

Dr. Edwin Anderson, researcher at SLU’s CVD states:
An effective adolescent vaccine against meningococcal B disease has the potential to help save lives and reduce emotional and psychological stress caused by long-term consequences of the disease.
This vaccine will target the human immune system, our body’s natural defense against disease. Their purpose is to find an effective way of tricking the human immune system. Traditional use of dead cultures in this instance is ineffective, says Anderson.

Because of the adverse reactions, the use of live cultures of dangerous diseases and the proven ineffectual nature of vaccines, this rush to find a meningitis vaccine targeting our children is simply another attempt by Big Pharma to undermine our natural ability to remain healthy.

glaxo is an evil english cpmpany which pressurises other govt. to not sell cheap drugs and which promotes the medicine of dubious value when the cheaper good alternative is available for that. take the example of zantac, anti herpeses virus drugs etc-all fraud to fill up british company's pocket.

All this media collusion with the evil design of this
sir(all pirates in english history have been called sirs)richard sykes to
eat up other higher institutions to charge hefty fee on the ground that middle class should bear the true cost
is ludicrous considering that the same people and media have been against any income tax insrease
becasue it would affect the middle class.(though the media's middle england is an ephemerism for plumber' class which is really the prodominant calls of england
One has to examine this richard's track record in glaxo and see what he is driving at. The media is saying in effect that his plan is good as it will draw a lot of money from abroad-so caalled market place of higher education. In other words it is colluding with drawing of money from the rich classes of Thirld world
that is what it wants.
First the flaw is that so called thirld world has better engineering and techinical instituitions than imperial college and the likes.
(This imperial college got prospered on the back of stolen German scince and technology since early 20th century.)

THe calcultaion of richard and media is that england with the help of america(becasue england on her own is an unimportant and impotant country) will pressurise and bully the thirld world leaders to
make policies favourable to english and only englaish trade so that thirld world will get poorer and the elites and rulaers of those thirld world will send their wards and money to england.after all that is what has been
happeneing in last 20 years tha t a thirld rate country like england is not getting any recession while real manufacturing vountries like germay and japan and Asian tiger'e economy has beeen in recession for last 15 years.
It is this calculation which is supported by the english media and english prime minister.
Ofcourse that tony blair is a pimp on behalf of english(and only english) busiess interests and so is this richard.
Take his record in glaxo. WHen a spurious value drug agasint influenza was brought by glaxo then it was hailed a a miracle cure-it was supposed to limit duration of flu from 7 days to 6 days at a cost of 35 pounds. AS this pimpming british government -with all the will to help only english companies-could not approve-through Nice-this drug -the n this richard was telling the
media that the glaxo had assured the govt, that ti would not have pushed the drug so much in england but only in abroad-in other worrd he said that -do not wory abouth rubbishness aband cost of this drug-we will make only the thrld world pay for it. and he didi get his way later all,
IN THE SAME WAY A SPURIOUS DRUG ALLED zYBAN WAS INTRODUCED TO STOP SMOKING-IT CASUED MORE THAN 40 DEATHS AND SEVERAL MISHAPS -BUT THE APROOVAL BODY DID NOT MAKE ANY CRITICISM OF THIS SPURIOUS DRUG.In fact there had been antismoking drugs in market for last 20 years but they were not approved for giving to patients till glaxo's drug was approved. If you look at the way how glaxo marketed other drugs like antiulcer drug(Too costly against competion with no advantage) and
again so caaled anti viral drugs(all of spurious value) then you realize what a big con glaxo under this richard ahs played aganst nHs and the public money. Of course this richard was also saying that university should follow and be in collboraion with industry-in other word not be an indeepdent institution but a stooge for english businees.athat is why the glaxo ' drug -many of spurious value -was not challenged becasue many doctors-during the course of traiing to be consultant -have to rely on industry sponsored research-and can not be critical of industry. In fact most of the research from imperial college and the like is of questinable value and pure lies becasue of tainted money and the man from glaxo.
ofcorse the pimping english media waill fuly support the move-it is others the rest of the world who should give a thump down to this nefarious axis of english business and higher education.
