New Polio Vaccine Study

Patrick Quanten



Belgium is so proud of itself for being chosen to spearhead a new research project into a polio vaccine. The University of Antwerp has been funded by the Bill Gates Foundation to build a type of Big Brother house, an isolation unit, where subjects are being completely screened off from the outside world for 28 days. Belgium was chosen because polio vaccination for babies is mandatory so the uptake is almost 100%, which provides, in the eyes of the medical authority, perfect protection in case something goes wrong. The fee received for participation has been set at 10.000 € per person.


I would like to run you through the information that was put out to recruit study subjects and point out what it actually means. The official information will be reproduced here in italics. The rest are my own words and thoughts.


Study into the polio vaccine UAM4a

The Centre for Vaccination Evaluation is looking for volunteers to join this study. Men and women aged between 18 and 50, who already have received an injection of a polio vaccine (as is done in The Netherlands), are being invited to join this study into the safety and effectiveness in healthy adults, of two new, live attenuated, oral polio vaccines type 2. These healthy adults need to have been vaccinated before with the injected polio vaccine.

Why this study? - Poliomyelitis is a very contagious disease caused by the polio virus, of which three types are known. Infection may cause paralysis or sometimes even death. Polio can effectively be prevented by the use of a vaccine. Worldwide vaccination campaigns have been very successful in eradicating the wild type 2.

There are 2 types of polio vaccines in existence:

- the inactivated polio vaccine (IPV), injected into the muscle

- the oral, live attenuated polio vaccine (OPV), the Sabin polio vaccine, which is used in the form of drops into the mouth

The last one has a rare complication in as much that the vaccine can cause paralytic polio (a serious form of the disease whereby part of the body becomes paralysed) and it becomes contagious to others. It is because of these complications that all EU countries in the last ten or twenty years have changed from OPV to IPV.


Take note of the fact that this study looks into the safety and effectiveness of a polio vaccine in healthy adults.

Take note of the fact that there are three types of polio viruses, one of which, and then only the "wild" variety of that one type, certainly not the manufactured variety, has been nearly eradicated.

Take note of the fact that medical authorities state here that the Sabin vaccine causes paralytic polio. Something they have always vehemently denied!


In many developing countries the trivalent OPV (contains types 1, 2 and 3) has been used up to the beginning of 2016 because it was effective, cheap and easy to administer and it had an acceptable safety profile. The OPV vaccine was also very effective in stopping the spreading of the virus during an epidemic.


The OPV has an acceptable safety profile, which includes the medical authority's knowledge that it causes paralytic polio. Does this mean that the authority feels it is perfectly safe to use something that causes children to become paralysed? It also was effective in halting the viral spread during an epidemic. How can it achieve this when in the previous paragraph it states that the medical authority is well aware of the fact that the OPV vaccine contaminates others, that it spreads around from the vaccinated person into its environment?


To achieve worldwide eradication of polio every country will have to switch from OPV to IPV vaccination programmes and this will have to be done gradually.

In a first step in April 2016 a change from the trivalent OPV to the bivalent IPV has been achieved worldwide. In case a polio virus type 2 should still be present somewhere the World Health Organisation needs to have available a stock of oral polio vaccines type 2. It is for this reason that the current polio vaccines, containing type 2, are under study to ensure a greater safety than the old Sabin vaccine.


If type 2 has been eradicated, as being claimed, the whole research and production of a new type polio vaccine for type 2 would be a complete waste of time, money and energy. A commercial enterprise is designing and manufacturing a product that will never be sold. That sounds like a sound commercial proposition, something I definitely can see the pharmaceutical industry being very keen on! Or could it be that there is more behind the rhetoric?

Is polio truly eradicated or is there simply a natural low in the normal cycle, and do they know it is going to reoccur in a big way? When that happens it would not inspire confidence when they profess that the old vaccine, which clearly hasn't worked in the case of the return of polio, is going to be used successfully. So there is a need for a new one

Feeling the need to produce a safer vaccine than the one that has been used for the last sixty years confirms the grave problems the polio vaccine has always caused. Realising that you can fool some people some of the time but you can't fool all the people all the time, they are in for "something new". And new means better, as we haven't given it time for the complete picture of side-effects and health problems to emerge. Until that time we have on our hands a magical medicine, selling like hot cakes.


To conduct this study a provisional centre has been created where the study subjects will remain until there is no more polio virus detected in the faeces (called shedding) to a maximum of 28 days after their entry.

This way it can be prevented that live attenuated polio viruses coming from the vaccines end up in the environment before it has been established whether or not this strain is safer than the old Sabin OPV2 vaccine.


Once again confirmation of the unsafe polio vaccine they have been using for the last sixty years!                        

Preventing the spread into the environment of an unknown quantity, the potency of this vaccine to introduce polio in healthy persons, is scheduled for 28 days. If after that time the subject is still shedding polio viruses he or she is free to go into the environment regardless. All of the sudden the virus becomes no longer a danger to the rest of the population, it seems!

The information sheet solves this problem though.


When a person after 28 days still is shedding he/she will be allowed to leave the centre. He/she will be asked to collect daily stool samples and to deliver those to the centre. At the same time subjects will need to adhere to the criteria that were implemented during their stay at the centre. They will be provided with a portable chemical toilet in order to avoid infection within the environment.


How is that for safety and control? You are personally responsible; nothing to do with us anymore. First, the possible "escaping" of the virus is a major issue but once the 28 days are over we no longer want to ensure the virus can't escape. It is up to you, but we are not really worried anymore!

How does the polio virus spread according to the medical profession? For this, let's have a look at another source of information. It says: "Polio is spread through person-to-person contact. When a child is infected with wild poliovirus, the virus enters the body through the mouth and multiplies in the intestine. It is then shed into the environment through the faeces where it can spread rapidly through a community, especially in situations of poor hygiene and sanitation." Person to person contact. Enters via the mouth. Leaves the body via the faeces. Okay, how does this story work in practise then? Two people get together whereby one is infected with the polio virus and the other person eats the infected stools of the first one. Yes, that will be it!!!

Back to the study!


You can join the study if

  • you are between 18 and 50 years old and have received a complete (3 doses) basic vaccination over 12 months prior to the start of the study, using the injected polio vaccine.
  • you are prepared to stick to the rules of the protocol.
  • you are prepared to keep to the rules of the quarantine till the end of the viral shedding, as described in the information brochure.
  • you have signed the form for informed consent.
  • you have never been vaccinated with the oral vaccine.
  • you do not have serious gut diseases such as Crohn's, ulcerative colitis, or have had an operation to remove parts of the gut.
  • you do not have an allergy against components of vaccines or against antibiotics.
  • you do not have an illness that suppresses the immune system (HIV, hepatitis B or C)
  • you have not received treatment for over 14 days in the last 6 months with medications that suppress the immune system.
  • you do not have a fever or diarrhoea or vomiting on the day of the vaccination.
  • you do not abuse alcohol or drugs.
  • you are not pregnant or are breastfeeding.
  • you have not joined any other clinical study and have not taken any study product in the last 28 days prior to this one, and you are prepared not to take part in any other study for the duration of this one.
  • you have not received any vaccinations during the last 28 days prior to the study and you are not planning any other vaccination for the duration of the study.
  • you have not had a polio vaccination in the last 12 months.
  • you have not received any blood products or immunoglobulins in the last four weeks prior to the study or are planning to receive them during the study.
  • you are not an employee of the doctor involved or of the centre or of a family member of someone working at the centre or of the doctor concerned.
  • No trips to countries where polio is endemic
  • No trips to The Netherlands
  • No professional contact with food preparation, catering or food production
  • No close contact at all with persons with diminished resistance
  • No close contact with persons who have not received a full polio vaccination like children younger than 6 months
  • Not being aneonatal nurse or any other profession that brings you in contact with children younger than 6 months.

On top of that you need to be prepared to adhere to the following conditions for as long as the shedding continues beyond your stay at the centre:

  • No trips to countries where polio is endemic
  • No trips to The Netherlands
  • No professional contact with food preparation, catering or food production
  • No close contact at all with persons with diminished resistance
  • No close contact with persons who have not received a full polio vaccination like children younger than 6 months
  • Not being aneonatal nurse or any other profession that brings you in contact with children younger than 6 months.

The safety of the new vaccine is going to be proven by the fact that young healthy individuals, who have not recently been ill or received treatment, are not having any serious ill effects from having taken one dose of the vaccine. Of course, that is quite the equivalent of a three month old baby given the same dose and repeated twice over the next three months!!

Serious bowel disorders exclude you from the study. Could that have something to do with the fact that one can otherwise not be sure that the virus will be cleared out of the system in an optimal way? If that is the case, should we not ensure that the babies we give the vaccine to are also in a position to clear their systems optimally? Do we not vaccinate any baby with digestive problems?  And if they fully expect some people to still be shedding after 28 days would it not be possible that this could also be the case for tiny babies, including premature babies? If they haven't cleared the system after 28 days is it not possible that when you add more virus to the system that it is compounding the problem for that system?

A compromised immune system excludes you from the study. If, for whatever reason, your resistance is low, you as a young healthy adult should not be given the polio vaccine. I was taught that the very young and the very old had to be considered as having a lower resistance than the young adult. So we are always vaccinating individuals with immune systems of diminished power! And what to do with the medical profession's view that vaccination strengthens the immune system? Apparently not when it concerns young healthy adults!

Having had another vaccination within 28 days prior to the study excludes you from the study. Could that be because your system is already compromised by the previous vaccination? Not a good idea for a young healthy adult. A very good idea for a three month old baby! Have you got any idea how many vaccinations your baby is receiving within the first year of its human existence? Don't forget that every injection it receives contains three to five different vaccines. For young healthy adults two vaccines within 28 days is bad medical practice, and to be more precise one should check that shedding has completely stopped before one exposes that young healthy adult individual to the next vaccine. Why is it that the medical profession has a totally different attitude towards vulnerable and less sturdy systems of babies and small children?


As you can see, nobody actually needs to put any arguments forward against the vaccination programmes our governments force us to adhere to. They tell us themselves how these things work, what is important, where the dangers lie and what to be afraid of. It turns out that all we really need to be afraid of is them!


Keep a close eye on the rhetoric you hear and the facts you see. Their behaviour tells you so much more about the reality and their understanding of the reality than their words do.


Wish them well and just say "no".
