Does the Kenyan UNICEF Tetanus Vaccine contain HCG and make women infertile?

This week alarming reports from the bishops of Kenya and as well as a Catholic medical association about a tetanus vaccine program broke across the Christian blogosphere.  Before saying anything else, I want to be extremely clear that if a known sterility inducing vaccine was administered to women without their knowledge or consent, whether as part of a clinical trial or as a population control measure, the human rights of the Kenyan people have been violated.  Such an action would be a monstrous sin against those living in poverty.  Further it would be, in the words of Confederation of Kenya Consumers (Cofek) Programme Officer David Kedode,  “unlawful, immoral and must be condemned. ”

That said, there are some reasons that I am very skeptical that what has been claimed by the bishops in Africa has happened, or even could happen.  Looking at the claims made, only a few options seem possible.

kenya-tetanus-shot-population-control1.  Instead of a standard tetanus toxoid (TT) vaccine, an actual infertility vaccine was administered, rendering women infertile.  This would either be the result of a specific eugenics program or a clinical trial where informed consent was not obtained from the women in question.

2.  A tetanus toxoid vaccine that was contaminated with HCG was administered,  rendering women infertile but no one knew or cared whether the vaccines were contaminated.

3.  The test results that the bishops and doctors of Kenya are discussion are actually false positives, and there is no effect on fertility of the women who received these vaccines.

It is important to understand that this is not the first time these claims have been made.  The accusation that a tetanus vaccine was laced with HCG first appeared in the 1990s.  Countries such as the Philippines became suspicious of the vaccines being administered and had them tested.  These tests showed that the vials of tetanus toxoid had low levels, below 5 mIU-ml, of HCG present.  Anything below the 5 mIU-ml mark is not considered positive for HCG even if there is a quantitative level given that is not 0.  However, the testing methods used were the same methods that are used on a blood test to determine pregnancy.  Two preservatives in the tetanus vaccines can create essentially a very low level false positive, so low level that it falls below the 5 unit threshold that is necessary for a positive test result for HCG.

A report by Milestein recounts

“The vaccines were sent to hospital laboratories and tested using pregnancy test kits which are developed for use on serum and urine specimens, and are not appropriate for a vaccine such as TT (tetanus toxoid), which contains a special preservative (merthiolate) and an adjuvant (aluminum salt.)When the vaccines were tested in laboratories which used properly validated test systems, the results clearly showed that the vaccines did not contain hCG.  The results found in six laboratories in five countries on tetanus toxoid vaccines from seven manufacturers are available on request.  The low levels of HCG like activity seen in some samples were the result of false positive reactions.  In fact, in a laboratory in Hungary, it was shown that the sterile water supply from the local hospital gave a higher false positive level of HCG than did the TT vaccine.”

Part of the confusion on this point is that in the early 1990s, and even earlier than that in the 1970s, a scientist (who had no relationship or funding from the World Health Organization) was working on an anti-HCG vaccine that could be used to render a woman infertile.  In order to trick the woman’s body into recognizing HCG as something to attack, though, HCG needed to be linked to a different antigen that would act as a carrier of sorts.  So, Dr. Talwar in India created his vaccine by initially grafting HCG onto tetanus in the hope that the body would recognize tissue that gave off HCG (in this case, the placenta of a developing baby*) and make implantation either impossible or unsustainable.  His vaccine was successful in this goal, but it required a significant number of boosters whenever antibody levels dropped, as they inevitably did.

I’m going to pause for a moment to explain a bit more about the Talwar HCG vaccine.  This fertility vaccine is *not* made by simply pouring some HCG into a batch of the standard tetanus toxoid vaccine.  It’s not clear to me that even if HCG somehow managed to contaminate a tetanus toxoid vaccine that there would be any effect whatsoever, because the Talwar vaccine is a recombinant vaccine.  The tetanus toxoid and HCG in this vaccine are linked together, grafted onto each other.   In this vaccine, there are literally millions of units of HCG linked to tetanus toxoid.  In a response to this controversy, the WHO noted that “There is a situation where ant- β-HCG antibodies can be produced by the body and that can act as a contraceptive, however, this requires the administration of at-least 100 to 500 micrograms of HCG bound to tetanus vaccine (about 11,904,000 to 59,520,000 mIU/ml) of the same hormone where currently less than 1 mIU-ml has been reported from the lab results.”

I have seen the lab results from the tests performed at the request of the bishops in Kenya, and my understanding is that they will be published shortly in an online news source.  I will update and link to them when that happens.  The lab results are all within the same range as that found in the initial testing from the Philippines: all below 5 mIU/ml.  The precise numbers are 0.3, 1.2, 2.7, and <1 mIU/ml.  However, given that the Talwar vaccine would contain millions of times more HCG than the lab values in the Philippines suggested, I think it is fair to say that at minimum the vaccine used in the Philippines was not the Talwar contraceptive vaccine.  The testing done initially using the most readily available but less reliable methods on the Philippine samples yielded very low levels of HCG, too low to definitively meet the threshold of saying that HCG was present in the vaccine.  These equivocal results are potentially explained by a reaction between the preservatives in a standard tetanus toxoid vaccine and a serum/urine HCG test kit, but are too low to be considered a significant threat when compared to the millions of times higher quantities of HCG present in a true HCG vaccine.

Further complicating the issue?  The Talwar vaccine using HCG is about 20 years out of date, and Talwar has since moved on to using other vehicles to transport HCG.  In the story from the Kenyan newspaper The Standard linked above, Talwar states that “In our new vaccine, we have replaced tetanus toxoid by another carrier LTB, which would avoid the misinformation that has been associated with the valuable tetanus vaccination.” His more than 20 year old tetanus/HCG vaccine doesn’t appear to have ever even made it out of clinical trials.  Because his vaccine never made it out of clinical trials, this isn’t something anyone could access to execute a plan of mass sterilization of 2.3 million girls and women even if they wanted to.  You wouldn’t be able to get the kind of quantities needed to do this.  And if you did?  The Talwar vaccine is actually quite effective.  There should be a significant, obvious, conspicuous absence of expected pregnancies and births for the entire group of women who received the UNICEF vaccine, but no such report is being made.  For these reasons I do not think it is likely that the Talwar vaccine is being used in Kenya.

So, let’s go back to the environmental contamination theory wherein HCG could somehow contaminate tetanus toxoid vaccines and cause infertility.  HCG isn’t an ingredient that one would commonly find in a vaccine manufacturing plant.  It is medically produced (ironically for treatment of fertility issues) but the process of making vaccines is so stringent in terms of safety and testing requirements that the idea of a bunch of HCG accidentally getting mixed into millions of doses of vaccines is extraordinarily unlikely.  And if somehow it did happen, that is still HCG that is not linked through recombinant technology to the tetanus so it’s really uncertain that it would have any effect whatsoever, especially given that the actual amount of HCG required to induce antibody response against HCG is millions of times higher than what was found in the lab reports from Kenya. 

I still support the testing of these vaccines on the proper equipment in different countries done by independent laboratories to ensure that they are not tainted or altered in any way.  And I am glad to see reported that the bishops and the Kenyan government are jointly testing these vaccines to ensure that they are free from any contamination.  I do not think that any person should ever have to choose between being unprotected and using a vaccine that she is afraid may not be safe.  I can only imagine the fear of a woman who knows all too well the risks of maternal and neonatal tetanus but whose bishop raises the alarm that the vaccine she needs may serve as an inoculation against maternity.

But I do not see any reason to think that the results of testing done on the proper equipment with the right methodology will be any different from what was discovered 20 years ago when this same concern was raised.  There is virtually no way that the vaccine used in Kenya was the Talwar HCG vaccine, and it is also incredibly unlikely that HCG was somehow accidentally added to contaminate at a low level the standard tetanus vaccines being used.  I believe that the most likely scenario is that these vaccines were tested using instruments and methods that just aren’t equipped to determine environmental contamination as distinct from a very low level interaction between vaccine preservatives and an HCG test kit.  It is very understandable that seeing any HCG level detected in any vaccine would be concerning, especially given the way that the poor have historically been exploited in scientific research, but thankfully this seems likely to be a misunderstanding centered on false positive lab results not helped by a lack of transparency, collaboration and communication by the parties involved.

In the meanwhile, maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) as a threat is very real.  Maternal and neonatal tetanus is a disease of those who are born and give birth into poverty, a disease of birth contaminated by dirt and unsterile equipment.  It is a heartbreaking disease to witness (WARNING, that link has an image of a newborn with neonatal tetanus and it may be painful for anyone to look at.)  In the last year for which I could find numbers, fifty eight thousand children died of neonatal tetanus worldwide.  Fifty eight thousand, even more heartbreaking when considering that this constitutes a 93% reduction from the burden of neonatal tetanus in the late 1980s.  And these conditions are entirely possible to eliminate through the use of a primary series, and if a mother has had her entire five dose series she will be protected for life and all of her newborns will be protected at birth.

I stand with the bishops in supporting the immunization of all Kenyan women to prevent the threat of neonatal and maternal tetanus, using a safe and effective vaccine.  These mothers and their children deserve to live their already challenging lives with one less risk to worry about.

*  I was asked whether there could ever be a licit reason to even make an anti HCG vaccine several days ago, and the answer is yes.  Choriocarcinoma is just the most well known of several cancers that give off HCG.

UPDATE:

One of the labs which tested the tetanus vaccine has come out saying that they were never told that the sample they tested was pharmaceutical instead of a human sample and that the results detected a low level of “HCG like activity” which nonetheless is not HCG.

  1. I learned a lot by reading this post. Thank you.

    I did notice an error, though. You write: “Part of the confusion on this point is that in the early 1990s, and even earlier than that in the 1970s, scientists (who had no relationship or funding from the World Health Organization) were working on an anti-HCG vaccine that could be used to render a woman infertile.”

    On the contrary, the WHO was in fact the organization that oversaw and promoted research on FRVs (fertility reduction vaccines), beginning in the early 1970s. Here is their own 1992 document (they met with womens health advocates who were concerned about the potential for abuse of FRVs) with some of the history and references to some of the research: http://whqlibdoc.who.int/hq/1993/WHO_HRP_WHO_93.1.pdf.

    There are dozens of papers from peer reviewed scientific journals between the 70s through the 90s that present findings on FRV research, several of which list WHO as sponsor. According to the WHO, the most “promising” was beta-hCG containing tetanus toxoid vaccine, which would have no abortifacient effect on women who were already pregnant, but would disrupt pregnancies at an early stage for a period after application. Such events are very unlikely to be accurately recorded in epidemiological data from the developing world. There were different versions of FRVs tested, including a couple that would have had a spermicidal effect on men. As usual, the male-directed versions didn’t pan out, and of course the test subjects for the clinical trials were women in India and Africa, not in Scottsdale or the upper East Side.

    I agree that we need to find out exactly what was in the vaccine in the specific and supposedly problematic batch from Kenya, but given the continuing population control abuses that are reported every year, we would do well to look beyond WHO press releases for answers, as you have done above. Thanks again.

    • Thank you for the comment, Mr. Phelan! Glad to have been of help. Thanks for catching the error I made. I should have been very specific that it was Dr. Talwar’s work, not fertility vaccines in general, that was not funded by the WHO. I will correct later this evening.

  2. Thanks for your article. I have a question about a claim made in the linked matercare article that the women previously exposed to tainted vaccines were found to have HCG antibodies: “It was only after antibodies against HCG were demonstrated in the women who were immunized with the laced tetanus vaccine that the matter was sealed. The immunized women have suffered multiple abortions and some have remained sterile.”
    Do you have any information about that claim?
    Thanks again!

    • I would really want to see the lab reports to see what level of antibodies were found to be present. It is also possible albeit rare for someone to develop HCG immune response without exposure to an anti fertility vaccine. I would want to know how many women are reported to be found to have anti HCG antibodies and whether the expected birth rate among women who accepted the vaccine suffered in any way.

      Would I be correct in assuming that you believe that the UNICEF vaccine in Kenya was in fact a fertility vaccine? Assuming that is correct, do you think it is the Talwar vaccine or that there was some HCG as an environmental contaminant?

  3. Hi Genevieve – actually no one can be certain just yet as to what these women received so the article was simply FYI. It worries me because I have been involved in this situation in the past – more than once in which there were tetanus toxoid vaccines given to women only, child-bearing age only and lab results showed both sterility in the women and hCG additive to an otherwise standard tetanus vaccine. Because we have good Catholic doctors investigating this now (as we did then) I believe the truth will emerge. But I don’t trust WHO to give us that truth. Praying for all women who received the vaccines. Thanks for writing!

    • If the goal is to prevent maternal and neonatal tetanus then women of childbearing age would be the intended recipients of this campaign. I had no idea how many babies died per year of tetanus acquired at birth. I’m still deeply shaken by that. 58,000 babies dying with muscles locked, an agonizing death, simply because they were born in poverty to mothers who were not immune. We can do better to build an authentic culture of life. We must do better.

      I understand that this is not the first time these claims were made. I addressed that, at length actually, in this post. I talked about the risk of false positives in the results from the Philippines and in this case.

      Could you clarify a bit what you mean when you say that you don’t trust the WHO to give the truth? Do you believe that they would falsify results? And again, just conjecture, do you think this would be the Talwar contraceptive vaccine or somehow an environmentally contaminated regular tetanus vaccine?

      My questions are because in order for it to be true that the vaccines in Kenya have HCG, there are other things that have to be true as well, especially since the actual fertility vaccines are millions of times higher than the trace amounts indicated in the Kenyan test results and no fertility vaccine is actually available at this point in time.

      You are much better connected and have a much longer time working on these issues. Do you have a copy of any of the results of the HCG autoimmunity screens from the Philippines? The antibody levels should be above 50 in order to have an effect on fertility.

        CATHOLIC DOCTORS SPEAK: TETANUS VACCINATION CAMPAIGN IS ALL ABOUT POPULATION CONTROL
        “Let me authoritatively clarify the concerns raised by the Catholic Bishops on the just concluded tetanus vaccination by sharing extracts from the official position of the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association as below; feel free to share the article:
        Tetanus is an incurable disease that infects the body through broken skin or wounds. The umbilical cord stamp of newborn babies is a possible entry point and makes them especially susceptible. It is best prevented through immunization with the tetanus toxoid (TT) vaccine.
        We would like to assure the public that the normal vaccines available in both public and faith based organization in this country are clean. Generally speaking, the faith based medical facilities give the same if not more vaccinations than public institutions.
        Our concern and the subject of this discussion is the WHO/UNICEF sponsored tetanus immunization campaign launched last year in October ostensibly to eradicate neonatal tetanus. It is targeted at girls and women between the ages of 14 – 49 (child bearing age) and in 60 specific districts spread all around the country. The tetanus vaccine being used in this campaign has been imported into the country specifically for this purpose and bears a different batch number from the regular TT. So far, 3 doses have been given – the first in October 2013, the second in March 2014 and the third in October 2014. It is highly possible that there are two more doses to go.
        Giving five doses of tetanus vaccination every 6 months is not usual or the recommended regime for tetanus vaccination. The only time tetanus vaccine has been given in five doses is when it is used as a carrier in fertility regulating vaccines laced with the pregnancy hormone – Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) developed by WHO in 1992.
        When tetanus is laced with HCG and administered in five doses every 6 months, the woman develops antibodies against both the tetanus and the HCG in 2 – 3 years after the last injection. Once a mother develops antibodies against HCG, she rejects any pregnancy as soon as it starts growing in her womb thus causing repeated abortions and subsequent sterility.
        WHO conducted massive vaccinations campaigns using the tetanus vaccine laced with HCG in Mexico in 1993 and Nicaragua and Philippines in 1994 ostensibly to eradicate neonatal tetanus. The campaign targeted women aged 14 – 49 years and each received a total of 5 injections.
        What is downright immoral and evil is that the tetanus laced with HCG was given as a fertility regulating vaccine without disclosing its ‘contraceptive effect’ to the girls and the mothers. As far as they were concerned, they had gone for an innocent injection to prevent neonatal tetanus!
        Considering the similarity of the WHO tetanus vaccination exercise in South American with the Kenyan camping and with the background knowledge of WHO’s underhand population control initiatives, the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association brought the matter to the attention of the Bishops and together sort audience with the Ministry of Health with only one request; that the tetanus vaccine being used in this campaign be tested to ensure it was not laced with HCG before the 2nd round of immunizations in March. The Ministry of Health declined to have the vaccine tested.
        With great difficulty, the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association managed to access the tetanus vaccine used during the WHO immunization campaign in March 2014 and subjected them to testing. The unfortunate truth is that the vaccine was laced with HCG. This proved right our worst fears; that this WHO campaign is not about eradicating neonatal tetanus but a well-coordinated forceful population control mass sterilization exercise using a proven fertility regulating vaccine. This evidence was presented to the Ministry of Health before the third round of immunization but was ignored.
        When challenged in South America in the early 1990’s about the tetanus vaccine used in their camping being laced with HCG, WHO brushed off the claims as unfounded and asked for proof. When proof was provided by the Catholic based bodies in those countries, WHO claimed that the other components of the vaccine production process may have caused false positive results. When pushed further, they accepted that a few vaccines may have been contaminated with HCG during the production process. However, HCG is not a component nor is it used in the production of any vaccine let alone tetanus! It was only after antibodies against HCG were demonstrated in the women who were immunized with the laced tetanus vaccine that the matter was sealed. The immunized women have suffered multiple abortions and some have remained sterile. Do we have to wait until this point before action is taken? Though the Bishops are medically lay people, they have technical advisory teams of competent specialists from every discipline, including medicine. These teams are both local and international as the Catholic Church is global. The Catholic based and run health institutions form the largest private health network in the country and have been rendering medical services to Kenyans for over 100 years! Thus, when the Bishops speak on topical issue like the tetanus vaccination, they are talking from a point of knowledge and authority. It would be foolhardy to disregard their advice.
        We have performed our moral and civic duty of speaking the truth and alerting the government and the people of Kenya. It is now up to each individual Kenyan to make an informed choice.

      • Thanks, Debi! I’m a little confused though. The Talwar vaccine is very effective, but it would have 11-59 million units of HCG. The highest rating from the labs that the bishops got on their vaccine testing was less than 3 units, and it isn’t actually considered a positive test unless the level is over 5. Intentional tampering… I mean if you are going to tamper, wouldn’t you use something that actually works? The amounts of HCG *possibly* identified were well within the range that you would see with a false positive, especially if you are using the tests that you would run on a pregnant woman instead of the tests that you would use to detect contamination in a pharmaceutical product. And that level of HCG is millions of times lower than what is in “fertility vaccines” in order to make them work.

        This particular topic was boggling. But, pending the joint results of the bishops and the Kenyan government, I am very optimistic that this was a very understandable misunderstanding.

Myself, I cannot imagine a more horrifying way for a newborn to die, and we have a way to prevent these babies dying. While conspiracy theories about what the WHO are tantalizing, we cannot forget what we are actually trying to prevent. And since the evidence proving a WHO conspiracy are scant to nil, it’s best to not say anything until we actually do have answers or to assume that most conspiracies are theoretical only and not real.

  4. Debi, I’m wondering if you read the actual post about which you are debating. There are a few paragraphs that explain fairly well why we could find low levels of HcG in vaccines as well as why those low levels are not an issue.

    I agree we don’t have all the answers yet, and the article does a good job of saying that as well. It’s simply bringing up reasons why this does not seem to be plausible. I just find it odd that we don’t have the answers and yet so many people are making such bold claims about a secret mass conspiracy to sterilize the poor of the world without all the answers. To me, that seems rather unethical.

    • Thanks for weighing in, Elizabeth. I think it’s really important to keep in mind that the number of units *still in the margin where detection isn’t actually certain* are the proof that have been given by the bishops to support their claim. When you are talking about readings in that corridor where you have a number that isn’t 0 but it isn’t above the threshold required for an actual positive it can be unnerving. I very much understand why intuitively someone would reel at any HCG reading that isn’t 0. But I’m breathing a sigh of relief that it isn’t a reading of 10 or 50, which I would take more seriously as a potential contamination issue, and it isn’t 10 million or 50 million that an actual fertility vaccine would demand.

  5. It was reported that these vaccines were brought to vaccination campaign sites with police escort. In addition, WHO personnel injected women, although the normal practice is to utilize local health providers. And samples of vaccine used by testing were obtained with “great difficulty.” It was also reported that the typical regimen to prevent neonatal tetanus in Kenya involved two injections a couple months apart given to the pregnant woman. The vaccine labs used were four government labs in Kenya and one in South Africa. I would absoultely be suspicious of WHO. WHO with its
    Population control ideology and big money has corrupted numerous governments, doctors, and academic centers in developing countries. Further testing in progress will elucidate the nature of the Kenyan vaccine.
    Unless the Talwar lab is open to public scrutiny there will be continued suspicion of their anti-sperm anti-ovum and anti-HCG vaccines.
    Suspicion of this agency’s activities is rational.

    • See, I have no doubt at all that the way this was handled by the bishops was in direct response to alarming behavior by the Kenyan government. But that in no way means anything beyond that the government in Kenya has corruption in staggering degrees. It does not mean that anyone could even get access to that much of an unapproved vaccine if they wanted to. And to commit an act of mass sterilization, you need the Talwar vaccine. And that would not be mass produced when it never even got to phase 3 clinical trials.

      Two doses of tetanus vaccine will protect the mother and probably her next child, but five doses will protect the mother and all of the newborns she may have in her whole life. Five doses is what the average American child has by the time they begin school. I do not think that the bishops acted irrationally if everything was changed up on them with no notice and with intimidation and stonewalling. But I also don’t think that it is likely that the test results that seem to show HCG actually have HCG in them at all.

  6. Genevieve, with all due respect, you are relying on “results” from WHO only and that is disturbing. I say this with complete honesty and kindness – but your article and some responding here seem – by what is written – to take the word of WHO and yet dismissing the bishops and Catholic docs like they are “mistaken”. You accuse the Catholic doctors – MDs – who actually want their patients vaccinated – with “intimidation and stonewalling” ? But what is worse is that in reality, this crisis creates a greater danger – and that is – that people worldwide will lose all trust in pharma and legitimate campaigns to end disease. The dishonesty of WHO in the past is evident; if they are harmless this time, they have a LONG way to go to prove that given that 6 different labs tested those vaccines and found hCG – which should not be there at all. I have no doubt that if WHO is in charge of re-testing, the results will not be reliable. And I only say that because they would have to “save face” and because I have dealt with women who believe they were sterilized in the past from the Philippines and WHO from the 1990’s – early 2000’s with Tetanus Toxoid vaccines. I personally spoke with their Catholic doctors – with the women – they could not conceive. I believe that legitimate tetanus vaccine is a must for these poor people but not at the expense of their motherhood. This whole situation both saddens and irritates me to no end. I think you know that I have worked very hard for 14 years to get morally produced vaccines to the market – and even my efforts are hurt by this sort of problem we are facing. I will face it alright but I won’t like it one bit – and neither should you or anyone who is in favor of legitimate clean vaccines. Not sure if your know this or not but I am pushing for morally produced Ebola vaccines for Africa right now – and this latest is just a big mess. (Like good luck with that PR trust! – Ugh!) So I am with you in spirit – hoping for the best. But that does not mean I will dismiss possibly illegitimate vaccine campaigns just to soothe public concerns – nor will the bishops, the physicians, the people of Africa – and I know you would not either. Praying…join me!

      And I will look at my wording but I am pretty confident I accused the *Kenyan government* of stonewalling and doing things that were frightening to the bishops who legitimately have the interests of their people at heart. I’m confused because I very clearly stated in my post that I want more testing done, but I expect it to confirm that the vaccine is safe and effective. I think this is an unfortunate misunderstanding but that if there is culpability I actually think the WHO document levies blame more at the Kenyan government than the bishops, whom they agree need to be involved from the very beginning.

        Second, a couple of technical questions, I’m wondering if you could share your source for the amount of hCG necessary in the TT vaccine to have the sterilization/abortifacient effect. I haven’t been able to find one. Also, since it seems like the protocols of multiple shots over a period of months, and a few more with two years are what developed as recommended during the bCG TT trials, and these shots are only given to women of reproductive age, should people be suspicious of this? Or, is there independent data on neonatal tetanus protocols that match this regime?

        Finally, I’m not sure it’s debatable that the international development industry as a whole thinks there are too many people in the world, that they include “RH” in every effort (increasingly without the pretense of actual development like infrastructure, education, etc.) in the developing world, and that they are regularly caught using coercive means (just this week again in India, as in 2012 (Guardian)). As we speak the Gates Foundation is being sued in India for using coercive means in vaccine research (lack of informed consent, involving thousands of women who didn’t know they were experiment subjects, “signing” consent forms with thumb prints or surrogates since they’re illiterate), and they are leading “Family Planning 2020”, a 4.6 billion dollar effort to “help” 120 million women in the developing world start using Depo Provera and similar methods that have been restricted in the US but are being foisted on untold millions of African and Asian women. No hospitals, no roads or cell towers or schools. China is building these. Just birth control. You can spend 10 minutes on youtube to find Bill Gates talking repeatedly and openly about his primary concern of overpopulation, and how he thinks vaccines are part of the solution.

        None of this proves that the vaccine program under suspicion in Kenya was about population control. The Gates Foundation is a big funder of WHO, but they fund all those groups, so this isn’t a proof of anything either. But a great deal of skepticism is warranted when it comes to the claims of the industry that thinks fertility is a disease, and that there are too many people in the world. Let’s find proof before we make charges, as you recommend as well. Thanks again for the cool head and charitable approach.

      • The shots are being given to women of reproductive age only specifically because of the burden of tetanus in mothers giving birth (death by sepsis from tetanus after giving birth with attendants with dirty hands and unsterile birth kits) and their children (the umbilical cord wound being contaminated with dirt.) The approach to triage with the women of childbearing age has dropped worldwide deaths of neonatal tetanus 93% in about the last 25 years, but that number is currently at 58,000 babies per year. If there was enough funding and a good enough infrastructure to get every single person in the world vaccinated for tetanus, that would be the choice made. With limited funding and with such a profoundly disproportionate burden of the disease, that is why you would go to the people most likely to die or be harmed.

        They are basically doing what for an American 15 year old would be a catch up schedule. The average 15 year old in the US should have had 6 doses of tetanus vaccine, but is less likely to be at risk of tetanus unless she does extensive gardening. The average Kenyan 15 year old? May be giving birth in a rural district where she cannot get away from dirt, where her midwife (if she has one) has no way to really clean her hands. And she probably doesn’t have that initial immunization series that her American counterpart would have.

        I will definitely be emailing for those results (thank you so much for offering!) and will respond more at length when I get more time later today. Please trust that as a mother of seven I am extremely sensitive to any possible reproductive coercion. That any woman or man would be manipulated into contraception and sterilization is repugnant. India has been horrifying me, and I am hoping we will be able to cover that as well.

      “The tetanus vaccine does not contain the Beta hCG group,” said the MD of Lancet, one of the six labs contracted, Dr Ahmed Kalebi.

      The pathologist said the church misinterpreted the results of the tests that were conducted in his lab in March and October.

      […]

      ALTERNATIVE LABS
      Dr Kalebi said the vials delivered to Lancet by the church were treated as human samples and not as vaccines. “We tested these samples as we would a request to determine pregnancy”.

      He added that it was not communicated to him and his team that the vials were a vaccine and not a human specimen.

      “Had we been informed from the very beginning, we would have advised them on alternative labs to take the tests to for accurate results and even interpreted the data properly,” Dr Kalebi said.

      He explained to the Sunday Nation on the telephone that there are specific procedures for conducting tests, and a numerical figure in a test cannot be interpreted to mean the presence or absence of an element in another test.

      “We are a human-sample testing laboratory with equipment developed to carry out tests on serum, urine and other human specimens; the same procedures used on clinical tests on a matter such as pregnancy are not appropriate for tests such as a vaccine”.

      INAPPROPRIATE TESTS

  8. From what the Catholic doctors have stated among others – its the 5 doses with the hCG that causes the sterility. Quoting: “The only time tetanus vaccine has been given in five doses is when it is used as a carrier in fertility regulating vaccines laced with the pregnancy hormone – Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) developed by WHO in 1992.
    When tetanus is laced with HCG and administered in five doses 1 every 6 months, the woman develops antibodies against both the tetanus and the HCG in 2 – 3 years after the last injection. Once a mother develops antibodies against HCG, she rejects any pregnancy as soon as it starts growing in her womb thus causing repeated abortions and subsequent sterility.” So while the amount in one vial may not seem significant, it could if received 5 times.

    • Maybe you should re-read the blog post before posting further. Genevieve addressed that point: “And if somehow it did happen, that is still HCG that is not linked through recombinant technology to the tetanus so it’s really uncertain that it would have any effect whatsoever, especially given that the actual amount of HCG required to induce antibody response against HCG is millions of times higher than what was found in the lab reports from Kenya. ” 5x =/= millions of times. There is an enormous difference between 5 (multiplied by amounts below 5) and millions.

(20 nanograms = 0.02 micrograms.)

No wonder the Kenyan Catholic bishops and the KCDA are working so closely together on this!….”

    “In other words, there’s no evidence to support the claims of the KCDA, and they aren’t even plausible, given what is known about the history of vaccines using hCG coupled to tetanus toxoid. Quite simply, such vaccine linking hCG to tetanus toxin are basically history, long abandoned. They didn’t even work very well as long term contraceptive, with their effect fading after three months, much less as permanent inducers of sterility. The Catholic Church and the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association are thus engaging in fear mongering. They might believe they are doing good, but they are engaging in activity that could very well lead to the preventable deaths of Kenyan babies, as young women are frightened away from receiving the tetanus vaccine by their rhetoric and highly dubious laboratory results.”

  11. Which organisation seeks to control human reproduction worldwide? The WHO? The Roman Catholic Church?

    Could events in Kenya be a deliberate attempt by Roman Catholic “pro-life” organistions like Human Life International and MaterCare International to undermine public trust in the WHO?

    To present the RC Church as the true defenders of public health? Knowing that the accusation against the tetanus vaccine is false but using it anyway?

    These organisations ought to know that the accusation is false because it has been made before by such groups and was demonstrated at the time to be completely unfounded.

    What we are seeing in Kenya is an exact re-running of history.

    It would seem quite possible that so-called pro-life organisations are spreading lies in the developing world to create fear and distrust for ideological reasons.

    Why else would Kenya Catholic Doctors Association issue a statement shared with MaterCare International having recently paraded on the streets with Human Life International?

    Who are KCDA anyway? When, by whom and why were they set up? How many KCDA doctors are there? What proportion do they represent of Kenya’s total number of doctors. Are they a puppet organisation of the RC Church in Kenya? Or a puppet of one of the international pro-life organisations?

    Why is it that in the present case of Kenya and others in the past, that it is only Roman Catholic doctors that have questioned the tetanus vaccine?

    Questions are being raised by the Roman Catholic Church and pro-life organisations. Questions need to be asked, in turn, of them.

  14. Genevieve,

    The fact that a vaccine vial was tested and found to have levels of free HCG that are far lower than what is needed to cause future spontaneous abortion does not mean that the vaccine isn’t loaded with “denatured” HCG sufficient to induce antibody production. Some basic understanding of how vaccines work is in order. If free HCG is injected into a human it will be rapidly cleared with no immunogenic response. The way the vaccine is manufactured is to take HCG and attach it to a tetanus toxoid, thus making the vaccine antigenic. Importantly, once attached, it would not show up in an assay for HCG, because it is a completely different chemical entity at that point. See the abstract for a patent for HCG vaccine:

    “Antigenic modification of polypeptides
    US 5006334 A
    ABSTRACT
    Endogenous and exogenous proteins, and fragments thereof, are chemically modified outside the body of an animal so that when injected into the animal they produce more antibodies against the unmodified protein than would injection of the unmodified protein or fragment alone. The chemical modification may be accomplished by attaching the proteins or fragments to carriers such as, for example, bacterial toxoids. The chemical modification can also be accomplished by polymerization of protein fragments. Proteins which can be modified include Follicle Stimulating Hormone and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. The modified polypeptide may be administered to animals for the purpose of contraception, abortion or treatment of hormone-related disease states and disease disorders…”

    So the presence of only a small amount of pure HCG in the vaccine proves nothing. It is the amount of chemically modified HCG that is the issue. In fact the presence of only a small amount of HCG is perfectly consistent with what you would expect in an imperfect manufacturing process involving the chemical modification of HCG.

    An accidental contamination at the manufacturing facility of pure tetanus vaccine would be impossible if the company manufacturing is in compliance with GMPs (Good Manufacturing Practices). Any pharmaceutical company producing contaminated products like this should and probably would be shut down.

    An independent unbiased well controlled test of the vaccine could ascertain the truth, but believe me, that is not going to happen. There is too much room for sleight of hand in handling the samples, doctoring the results, etc.

    As for whether the WHO would lie — of course they would. They think they are doing good, saving the world. A little white lie for such a noble cause is not a concern.

    • Thanks for the comment, Pharma Guy.

      If this is an actual HCG vaccine though, I’m not sure where there would be the opportunity to get vaccine for the millions of people who participated in this immunization drive would come from when not a single HCG vaccine that I can find even made it into Phase III clinical trials.

      Beyond that, the Talwar vaccine is actually quite effective. The math here is general ballpark, but I still think important to keep in mind. Assume an 80% efficacy rate, in 2.3 million women. The birth rate from Kenya is around 30/1000, so from that 2.3 million women I would expect 69,000 births normally. If there are only 14,000 instead of 69,000 births, it would be incredibly noticeable. I am unaware of any data suggesting that such a drop off has happened or is happening.

      There are several reasons why I don’t think that it is a likely possibility that an actual fertility vaccine was used for the purposes of population control. The questionable lab values are just one of the reasons why, and I stand by the lab in their concerns about using a serum test for a pharmaceutical product. Not for anything, but why would anyone so visibly violate international law? For what? And how many people are in on this conspiracy? And I’m just not prepared to make that kind of statement about the public health efforts of the WHO. Unless I have actual proof of white lies like that, not questionable consent but no knowledge or consent at all, I am going to presume that an effort to eradicate tetanus is because tetanus in mothers and newborns really is that horrifying a problem.

I know that the actual fertility vaccine has been shown to produce antibodies that induce infertility. But you still need to get around how one comes by 2 million doses of a vaccine that no one makes because it has never been approved. Even if it was a clinical trial, which we have no reason to think it would be, it should be one showing a highly effective vaccine, resulting in huge differences in population. A population control vaccine should be effective on a population level.
