A North Carolina district court has ordered Merck to turn over all of its Gardasil adverse events databases to plaintiffs suing the big pharma giant for injuries they claim were caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. Gardasil is a widely used vaccine commonly administered to both male and female teens and young adults before they are sexually active to protect against HPV infections. Most infections are benign and resolve on their own. Dozens of lawsuits have been filed by individuals claiming they have suffered a range of injuries after taking Gardasil, including autoimmune disorders, premature ovarian failure, chronic fatigue, pain and even cancer.
A North Carolina district court has ordered Merck to turn over all of its Gardasil adverse events databases to plaintiffs suing the big pharma giant for injuries they claim were caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine.
The databases, which include information from the Merck Adverse Event Reporting and Review System (MARRS), should contain all of the reports pertaining to Gardasil adverse events submitted by physicians, patients and publications, plaintiffs’ attorney Michael Baum told the Defender.
Dozens of lawsuits have been filed by individuals claiming they have suffered a range of injuries after taking Gardasil, including autoimmune disorders, premature ovarian failure, chronic fatigue, pain and even cancer.
The Defender reports: In his March 20 order, U.S. District Judge Robert J. Conrad, Jr., said, “Plaintiffs’ and their experts should have the same opportunity as Merck to review and analyze the entirety of the data.”
Merck until now has refused to make the entire MARRS databases available to the plaintiffs’ attorneys.
Gardasil is a widely used vaccine commonly administered to teens and young adults before they are sexually active to protect against HPV infections, which can be sexually transmitted later in life.
Japan Leading the World in Exposing Fraud with Gardasil HPV Vaccine Injuries and Deaths
In Japan, young women and girls suffering from severe chronic generalized pain following vaccination with Merck’s Gardasil® or GSK’s Cervarix®, have organized and are speaking out.
The issues are being debated at public hearings, at which scientific presentations have been made by independent medical experts who validated the women’s suffering with documented evidence of the severe nature of the pain related to the HPV vaccine.
The opposing view, presented by scientists aligned with the vaccine establishment, disregarded the scientific plausibility of the evidence and declared the pain was a “psychosomatic reaction.”
Such public debates do not take place where vaccine stakeholders are in full control of vaccine safety information. (Like in the U.S., for example.)
Following a public hearing (February 2014), at which scientific evidence was presented by independent scientists , the Japanese government, not only rescinded its recommendation that girls receive the HPV vaccine, but established guidelines and special clinics for evaluating and treating illnesses caused by the vaccine.
It is a scenario that Merck, GSK, and vaccine stakeholders globally are extremely anxious to suppress.
The Merck-commissioned, CSIS report, co-authored by Dr. Larson, paints a picture of an all-out war over media coverage – not over the high rate of serious adverse reactions.
The authors resort to the usual tactic of discrediting vaccine-injured individuals; they dismissed the serious health effects suffered by girls and young women following vaccination, as trivial.
The CSIS report presents the entire issue as an epidemic fueled by Internet rumors and “vaccine hesitators.”
“Over the last year, controversy within the Japanese medical and political arenas over the HPV vaccine has touched the public at large. Through social media and highly publicized events, anti-vaccine groups have gained control of the narrative surrounding the HPV vaccine.”
Global Collaborators in Action: Trash Honest Scientists to Suppress Inconvenient Evidence
The following case demonstrates how the global network of government/academic and industry stakeholders suppresses information about genuine scientific findings and, when needed, is engaged in corrupt practices to thwart the airing of information about vaccine safety issues.
This case involves inconvenient scientific laboratory findings in post-mortem tissue samples, showing that the HPV vaccine was contaminated with foreign HPV DNA fragments. The case also involves evidence (contained in internal correspondence) of deceptive practices by officials of “authoritative” international public health institutions.
In January 2016, pathologist Dr. Sin Hang Lee, MD, Director of Milford Medical Laboratory, sent an open letter of complaint to the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. Margaret Chan, in which he challenges the integrity of the GACVS Statement on the Continued Safety of HPV Vaccination (issued March 2014), and charges professional misconduct on the part of the following individuals (and suggests that others may have also been actively involved) in a scheme to deliberately mislead the Japanese Expert Inquiry on human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine safety before, during and after the February 2014 public hearing in Tokyo.
Dr. Lee challenged the integrity of the GACVS Statement on the Continued Safety of HPV Vaccination written by Dr. Pless, accusing him of deliberately misrepresenting his scientific findings in order to mislead non-scientific readers and those who set vaccination policies.
Dr. Pless is accused of deliberately conflating two unrelated articles, dealing with two different chemicals, written by different authors “apparently to create a target to attack.” Furthermore, Dr. Lee notes that the GACVS Statement relied on an unpublished 12-year-old “Technical Report” written by an unofficial, unnamed “group of participants” (according to CDC’s disclaimer).
He also found that the HPV DNA fragments were not only bound to Merck’s proprietary aluminum adjuvant but also adopted a non-B conformation, thereby creating a new chemical compound of unknown toxicity.
This non-B conformation, Dr. Lee believes, is responsible for the array of autoimmune illnesses experienced by children and young women following vaccination with Gardasil.
In 2012, Dr. Lee testified at a coroner’s inquest of the death of a New Zealand teenager, 6 months after receiving 3 Gardasil vaccine injections.
Dr. Lee was a presenter at the Tokyo hearing (2014), at which he disputed those who claimed the young women weren’t really suffering severe pain; they were having “psychosomatic reactions.” He stated:
“I do not believe psychosomatic reactions can cause sudden unexpected death in sleep, or inflammatory lesions in the brain as demonstrated by the MRI images and the brain biopsy histopathology with perivascular lymphocytes and macrophages and demyelination.”
Following the public hearing, GAVC issued a statement (March 12, 2014) aimed at discrediting Dr. Lee’s research by conflating his research with the research of other scientists who presented at the Tokyo hearing.
This case should have been prominently reported in the medical journals and by the mass media, and the allegation should have been investigated.
Mainstream publications have been silent; the case was reported only in alternative news outlets. 
In July 2016, a victims’ group filed a multi-plaintiff lawsuit in the district courts of Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, and Fukuoka against the Japanese government and the two pharmaceutical companies that had produced these vaccines.
Furthermore, in December of the same year, additional victims joined the multi-plaintiff lawsuit, bringing the total number of plaintiffs to 119 (Indian Journal of Medical Ethics, 2017).
The Hazards of Aluminum in Vaccines Is the Focus Of Intense Research
Of note: the placebo comparator in (most) vaccine clinical trials is not inert, it contains aluminum.
Several independent teams of international autoimmune experts have investigated this, led by the internationally recognized authority of autoimmune diseases, Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld of Tel Aviv University, Israel, and another group by Dr. Christopher Exley, Professor of Bioinorganic Chemistry, Keele University in the UK.
However, studies that document the hazards of aluminum in vaccines are not published in major influential medical journals.
In two cases, journal editors received over $1 million from industry sources. (Ed Silverman, STAT, 2017.)
The following case is an example of how science is subverted by tightly controlled journal gatekeepers. Journal editors who have sold their integrity by accepting industry kickbacks block publication of reports that might pose a financial threat to an intricate web of government and non-government institutions and professional associations – all of whom are financially tied to the pharmaceutical industry.
The case demonstrates the great difficulty encountered by independent scientists who have not sold their integrity to the highest bidder.
Publication Saga: Case Examples of Harassment Aimed At Suppressing Harmful Findings Regarding the HPV-Gardasil Vaccine
Indeed, Dr. Shoenfeld identified a new syndrome ASIA (Autoimmune/Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants).
“The idea of ASIA as a new syndrome developed after some studies on Gulf War syndrome reported that soldiers who had not been deployed to the Gulf area were suffering from symptoms such as severe fatigue, cognitive impairment, myalgias and arthralgias. This raised the question of whether it was the vaccines administered to the soldiers that induced these syndromes. The most common adjuvants are silicone implants and aluminum in vaccines.” 
The focus of the research seeks to shed light on “the roles and mechanisms of action of different adjuvants which lead to autoimmune/ inflammatory response.”
Prof. Shoenfeld encountered blockades from journal editors who attempted to suppress the findings of neuroinflammation and “behavioral abnormalities following administration of aluminum adjuvants and the HPV vaccine Gardasil.”
Those editors have financial stakes in the business of vaccines.
The HPV-mouse study was first submitted to for publication to the Journal of Human Immunology where it was shelved for 8 months and was then rejected by that journal’s Editor-in-Chief, Dr. Michael Racke.
“Dr. Racke has received personal compensation for activities with EMD Serone, Novartis, Roche Diagnostics Corporation, Genentech, and Amarantus as a consultant.”
EMD Serono, Inc. is a subsidiary of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.
The HPV-mouse study was published in the journal Vaccine in January 2016.
It was summarily withdrawn a month later following orders by the Editor-in-Chief, Gregory Poland. 
Dr. Poland’s direct conflicts of interest  include those disclosed on the Mayo Clinic website:
“Dr. Poland is the chairman of a safety evaluation committee for investigational vaccine trials being conducted by Merck Research Laboratories. Dr. Poland offers consultative advice on new vaccine development to Merck & Co., Inc. [Dr. Robert Chen is an Associate Editor of Vaccine.]”
How is it that this incestuous relationship did not raise loud cries of foul play? Those rejections by editors who had deeply vested financial interest in protecting vaccination rates, whose own financial interest was intertwined with vaccine manufacturers, elicited no protest from the scientific academic community.
Instead, these rejections were followed by vicious attacks against two of the scientists by industry’s cyber hit-squads that are hired to attack independent scientists whose honest research contradicts vaccine orthodoxy. That is viewed as a heresy inasmuch as it poses a financial threat. 
The study was revised, again peer-reviewed, and published in the journal Immunological Research (Nature-Springer) (2017). 
The reported findings remained the same:
“Vaccine adjuvants and vaccines may induce autoimmune and inflammatory manifestations in susceptible individuals. To date most human vaccine trials utilize aluminum (Al) adjuvants as placebos despite much evidence showing that Al in vaccine-relevant exposures can be toxic to humans and animals…It appears that Gardasil via its Al adjuvant and HPV antigens has the ability to trigger neuroinflammation and autoimmune reactions, further leading to behavioral changes…”
“In light of these findings, this study highlights the necessity of proceeding with caution with respect to further mass-immunization practices with a vaccine of yet unproven long-term clinical benefit in cervical cancer prevention.”
The basis for those findings was deemed to be scientifically sound by three sets of peer-reviewers, at three different journals.
Gardasil Destroys Girl’s Ovaries: It Should Have Been Predicted
October 18, 2012 by
A huge array of terrible effects have been attributed to Gardasil. They were predictable—and we’re likely to see many more over the next few years. Here’s why it could, and should, have been predicted.
by Heidi Stevenson
As noted in Gardasil Destroys Girl’s Ovaries: Research on Ovaries Never Considered, the BMJ has published the case report of a healthy 16-year-old Australian girl whose womanhood appears to have been stolen by Gardasil vaccinations. She became fully menopausal, her ovaries irrevocably shut down, without experiencing womanhood. That article focuses on the fact that Merck, Gardasil’s developer, had to be aware of potential harm to ovaries and either hid research documenting it or simply didn’t do it.
This article focuses on the how readily so many Gardasil disorders could—and should—have been predicted, simply by examining the known effects of two ingredients.
The article, Premature ovarian failure 3 years after menarche in a 16-year-old girl following human papillomavirus vaccination1, draws direct attention to three primary facts:
The girl has been thoroughly examined and tested. There is no known explanation other than the series of three Gardasil vaccinations she had.
Ovarian death—premature menopause—is generally believed to result from an autoimmune disorder.
They were unable to obtain data on the histology of rat ovaries resulting from the Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent Vaccine (Gardasil), though it was performed on rat testes and made available.
These three facts are chilling, but further examination has shown that there’s even worse. Adverse effects like premature menopause—and worse—could, and should, have been predicted.
Two Risky Ingredients
Gardasil contains two ingredients that are known to cause some of the damage that is now being seen. They are polysorbate 80 (brand names Tween 80, Alkest, and Canarcel) and L-histidine. Polysorbate 80 has been shown in at least one study to do great harm to female reproductive organs. The risk from L-histidineis more subtle, as its absence is the issue, but it’s likely more pervasive. The mechanism that would cause a lack of L-histidine is explained.
Treatment with Tween 80 accelerated maturation, prolonged the oestrus cycle, and induced persistent vaginal oestrus. The relative weight of the uterus and ovaries was decreased relative to the untreated controls. Squamous cell metaplasia of the epithelial lining of the uterus and cytological changes in the uterus were indicative of chronic oestrogenic stimulation. Ovaries were without corpora lutea, and had degenerative follicles.
Polysorbate 80 can cause anaphylactic shock. A study in the Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology3 concluded:
Polysorbate 80 is a ubiquitously used solubilizing agent that can cause severe nonimmunologic anaphylactoid reactions.
The most frightening trait of polysorbate 80 may be that it crosses the blood-brain barrier and can take other substances with it. It is used for that purpose. The drugs loperamide4 and doxorubicin5 are coated with polysorbate for just this purpose—to drag them into the brain.
So what else can polysorbate 80 drag into the brain? Gardasil utilizes aluminum as an adjuvant, even though it’s a dangerous neurotoxin. Injection of aluminum is associated with several neurological disorders, as is reported in Gaia Health and Mechanisms of aluminum adjuvant toxicity and autoimmunity in pediatric populations6, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune thyroid disease, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and autism may all be associated with aluminum adjuvants in vaccines.
Can polysorbate open the blood-brain barrier to let aluminum in? No one really knows because no one has looked. There is, though, no legitimate reason to assume that it cannot.
Considering how significant the risks of polysorbate 80 are, surely the precautionary rule should be applied before mass vaccinations of girls. And then there’s L-Histidine …
L-histidine is a precursor of histamine, which triggers the inflammation response in allergic reactions. We may think of histamine as negative, but it is, in fact, crucial for health. Though it can be excessive in the inflammatory response it triggers in allergic reactions, we wouldn’t survive without the inflammation it triggers in general infections.
L-histidine is an essential amino acid with several other functions, including7:
Tissue repair and growth.
Maintaining the myelin sheath of nerves.
Production of both red and white blood cells.
Production of histamine, carnosine, and anserine.
Acting as an antioxidant.
Stimulating gastric secretions.
Sexual arousal and orgasm in women.
Acting as a neurotransmitter.
Stimulating secretion of pepsin and hydrochloric acid, making it essential in digestion.
Low levels of L-histidine have been associated with rheumatoid arthritis7. It’s required for processing and chelation of copper, zinc, cobalt, and iron8,9,10,11, all of which are classed as heavy metals and noted for causing a variety of severe disorders when held in the body in excessive amounts.
Excessive amounts of these heavy metals can result in a large array of symptoms and conditions, including the milder ones of:
All of these symptoms are frequently reported by girls who are given the Gardasil vaccine. The question is: How do these symptoms of heavy metal intoxication relate to L-histidine in Gardasil? L-histidine is a necessary amino acid. It’s normally found in the body. All of these symptoms are related to inadequate amounts of the substance, so how can injecting it result in less L-histidine?
It is the seemingly innocuous nature that’s at issue. L-histidine is an amino acid that naturally occurs in the body. So too does squalene occur in the body naturally. It’s one of a group of oils used as adjuvants. However, they are not used in vaccines for human beings, with the insane and devastating exception of squalene. They are used to induce autoimmune disorders in laboratory animals so that they can be studied for response to potential treatments for those disorders. That’s why squalene is so dangerous and is clearly what’s behind Gulf War Syndrome. You can read about the likely connection between squalene and Swedish and Finnish narcolepsy outbreaks in How the Flu Vaccine Causes Narcolepsy.
Unless otherwise demonstrated, it must be assumed that injecting L-histidine can result in an autoimmune disorder in which L-histidine is attacked by the immune system, resulting in a shortage of it and the substances requiring it for manufacture.
Joint pain is a common complaint of girls who have been injected with Gardasil. Rheumatoid arthritis is known to be associated with low levels of L-histidine12. Of course, low levels of L-histidine can be expected if the immune system sees it as an enemy because it’s been injected. Therefore, joint pain and arthritis were predictible sequelae of Gardasil.
Weight gain has been reported in girls who’ve been given Gardasil. This should have surprised no one. The hypothalamus converts L-histidine into histamine for the purpose of suppressing hunger13. If an autoimmune condition destroys L-histidine, then there may be inadequate histamine and weight gain is a likely result.
Will we see an epidemic of miscarriages and birth defects in girls who don’t have the misfortune of becoming sterile from Gardasil? It seems likely, because histamine is necessary in the development of embryos and organs14.
It was entirely predictable that any bodily function that relies on L-histidine or one of the substances for which it’s a precursor, including histamine, carnosine, and anserine, could be affected. It should come as no surprise that adverse effects of Gardasil include a wide range of disorders and deaths. It would have been surprising had Gardasil not produced them!
Gardasil may be the first vaccine to utilize L-histidine. The reason it’s included doesn’t seem to be explained anywhere. The adverse effects of polysorbate 80 are well known, especially when it’s injected. Polysorbate 80′s ability to bypass the blood-brain barrier is not new information; yet, it was included in this vaccine that utilizes a known neurotoxin, aluminum.
The question that must be asked is: Why? What reason could possibly exist for a vaccine that could predictably result in such incredible harm? Much of the potential damage will likely not be seen for years. Will be find that the already-high rate of infertility skyrockets? Will those who do manage to conceive suffer the anguish of miscarriages and babies with birth defects? How many will suffer from autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis? How many will suffer from neurological disorders, such as the Tourette’s-like tics suffered by girls in New York?
Joel Lord refers to Gardasil, along with Cervarix, as A Legacy of Shame. We are now seeing only the beginning of the adverse effects that have likely been caused. Autoimmune disorders tend to take time to show up. It takes time before pubescent girls become sexually active. How many of them will never experience the potential of sexual intimacy because the vaccine’s L-histidine has stolen their ability of sexual arousal and orgasm?
The simplest reason of all is, of course, money. Merck and its minions simply value money over anything else, including the quality of countless young women’s lives. Nor do they appear to care how many will suffer early deaths. Are there other reasons? In my view, nothing could be more insidious than to willingly hide the terrible and predictable potential of a product simply to get rich. Others, though, see this as part of a conspiracy. What are your views?

The Japanese government withdrew its recommendation that the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine can be used by girls, due to possible adverse effects such as long-term pain and numbness.
On the contrary, health officials in the Unites States recommended last week that teenage girls should be HPV vaccinated more after a study showed that the vaccine is “highly” effective.
The vaccination in Japan is not suspended, but the use of the vaccine is not promoted by local governments, as instructed by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor, and Welfare.
“The decision does not mean that the vaccine itself is problematic from the viewpoint of safety,” said Mariko Momoi, who is a vice president of the International University of Health and Welfare in Ōtawara, Tochigi, Japan. “By implementing investigations, we want to offer information that can make the people feel more at ease.”
Merck, manufacturer and seller of one of the vaccines, Gardasil, commented the public decision:
“While direct causal relationship between the vaccines and serious symptoms observed after inoculation has not been established at this time, we fully understand the anxiety felt by many people in Japan. In response to this decision, we will continue to collaborate with all stakeholders, including (the health ministry), to monitor and verify safety data toward resumption of active promotion for HPV vaccination as soon as possible,” according to a company spokesperson.
Both Gardasil, which is a quadrivalent vaccine, and Cervarix (GlaxoSmithKline), which is bivalent, are legal to use in Japan.
Girls will still be able to be vaccinated for free, but from now on they will be informed by healthcare providers that the health ministry does not recommend it.
