Need Money? Vanderbilt University is Looking for Swine Flu Vaccine Volunteers

Vanderbilt will test swine flu vaccines
Nashville 1 0f 8 cities to hold trials

By Clay Carey • THE TENNESSEAN • July 23, 2009

Two experimental vaccines that could prevent swine flu will be tested at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, beginning in August.

The Nashville hospital is one of eight across the country where scientists will administer the first swine flu shots. Researchers are scrambling to find a safe vaccine that could be given this fall, when the traditional flu season begins."There is a real urgency," said Kathryn Edwards, a professor with Vanderbilt's Vaccine Research Program who will oversee the trials in Nashville. "The sooner we find out whether (the vaccines) are going to work, the better it will be for the community."

Tests, research are vital

Unlike regular winter flu that is most dangerous to people over 65 and under 2, this new swine flu seems to target school-age children, teenagers and young adults.

The tests, plus additional research from vaccine manufacturers, are critical as the government decides whether to offer swine flu vaccine to millions of Americans starting in mid-October — assuming that enough is produced by then — still a big question as the vaccine is proving hard to manufacture. Health authorities in other countries are looking to the U.S. studies, too, as they make their own plans.

For the first set of trials, local researchers are looking for about 400 healthy adults over the age of 18. When trials begin in early August, they will receive two separate doses, three weeks apart. Edwards said participants would be paid.

If clinical trials in adults seem to be safe, similar trials will begin for healthy children over the age of 6 months, according to the National Institutes of Health, a branch of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Swine flu vaccines also will be tested in Houston, Cincinnati, Atlanta, Seattle, St. Louis, Baltimore and Iowa City. {source}

A call to action.
For years Vanderbilt has been one of only a dozen hospitals to participate in vaccine trials that have national health implications.

"We will study this vaccine in people of all ages. First we will start out in normal healthy adults," Says Edwards.

But they will eventually expand the study to a larger group. {more}


Drug Groups to Reap Swine-Flu Billions

Some of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies are reaping billions of dollars in extra revenue amid global concern about the spread of swine flu.

Analysts expect to see a boost in sales from GlaxoSmithKline, Roche and Sanofi-Aventis when the companies report first-half earnings lifted by government contracts for flu vaccines and antiviral medicines.

The fresh sales – on top of strong results from Novartis of Switzerland and Baxter of the US, which both also produce vaccines – come as the latest tallies show that more than 740 people have died from the H1N1 virus, and millions have been affected around the world.

GlaxoSmithKline of the UK confirmed it had sold 150m doses of a pandemic flu vaccine – equivalent to its normal sales of seasonal flu vaccine – to countries including the UK, the US, France and Belgium, and was gearing up to boost production.

GSK also produces Relenza, an antiviral medicine that reduces the length and severity of the infection, and is preparing to increase manufacturing towards 60m annual doses. The UK placed an order for 10m treatments this year.

One beneficiary of the fears about the pandemic has been Roche of Switzerland, which sells Tamiflu, the leading antiviral drug, and has seen a sharp rise in orders from private companies as well as governments.

A report last week from JPMorgan*, the investment bank, estimated that governments had ordered nearly 600m doses of pandemic vaccine and adjuvant – a chemical that boosts its efficacy – worth $4.3bn (€3bn, £2.6bn) in sales, and there was potential for 342m more doses worth $2.6bn.

It forecast that fresh antiviral sales could boost sales for GSK and Roche by another $1.8bn in the developed world, and potentially up to $1.2bn from the developing world.

But there were also uncertainties for the pharmaceutical manufacturers. With demand likely to outstrip supply, and initial production suggesting that the yield for the pandemic vaccine is relatively low, they may face difficult choices in determining how much to supply to the countries seeking orders.

They are also under pressure to provide more drugs and vaccines for free, or extremely cheaply, to the developing world.

The word 'evil' is much overused and I don't say it lightly; but we are dealing with evil in the sense that the word is the reverse of 'live'. Those behind the conspiracy to cull the human population and turn the rest into little more than computer terminals are anti-life. They have no respect for it and no empathy with those who suffer the consequences of their actions, no matter how appalling.

I have been warning of what was coming for nearly 20 years and it is not 'coming' any more - it's here. No more excuses from anyone, please. We have to deal with it. We have to draw a line in the sand and say no more.

Never was this more important than with the conspiracy to force swine flu vaccination upon the global population. The swine flu virus was created in a laboratory to generate mass panic with the specific intention of forcing everyone to have the vaccine. Problem-Reaction-Solution. This 'natural' swine flu virus apparently contains genes from humans, birds and pigs from several continents.

  1. There IS An Analysis To This Problem Of Life Vs. Death--But Death Will Refuse To Be Identified
    (Apollonian, 23 Jul 09)

    Well heck yeah--I'm in favor of reducing world population--beginning w. all those who fail to agree w. me--why not? And of course, the basic function for building and reducing world population is CYCLIC. Presently, the reductionists think there are so many people they can get away with their arguments without providing serious reasoning.

    And as we reduce world population--for noble purposes, of course--those "accidental" victims who may inadvertantly fall by proverbial "wayside" will surely know they fell for a good, decent, and admirable cause, indubitably.

    For as reality is determined in strict accord with cause-effect, it is CYCLIC, and we've had enough of these Christian types who've worked to grow the population, so mindlessly and chaotically, as it is. This now is the time to remove all these extra people we don't need--meaning especially those darned, pesky Christians.

    Other thing I wanted to note is for u all to remember that I, personally, am absolutely essential to appropriate population--pls be sure not to forget.

    And who exactly were those Christians?--they were the first and most successful anti-semites (anti-Talmud, as Gosp. MARK 7:1-13).

    So the pt. to the preceding is IDENTIFICATION of the two opposed sides. To me, Christians are the most "rational" in way of healthy and life-affirming--as reason, never forget, is mere METHOD, without necessary end motives.

    Jew/Talmudic then is un-questionably most murderous and deathly--horrifically psychopathologic, ultimately mindless, and un-healthy--though Judaism sure does work and succeed, willing to make use of rationalist-styled techniques--as long as there are gentiles willing to "tolerate" such Judaism and serve it soooooo selflessly, in all their guilt indulgence and inferiority complex.

    These accomplices to Jews are "Judeo-Christians" (JCs--see and for expo/ref.), homosexuals, and bolsheviks. The interesting thing is JCs imagine they're "rightists" (or "conservatives"), opposed to leftist ("liberal") homos and bolshies--yet the Jews nonetheless succeed in keeping these factions organized and actually cooperating so brilliantly.

    But the trick, again, is life is CYCLIC, and eventually, just as there get to being too many Christians, there can get to being too many Jews and goy accomplices too.

    So anyway, once again, those are the two, opposed sides and "philosophies" (or "ideologies"), Christian-rationalist vs. Jew-oriented mystics (though these mystics will always protest they're really the most "rational"--the real test/criterion is the objective-subjective dichotomy).

    CONCLUSION: So Kenny, u may disagree w. me for my proposed analysis and (above) expo for the opposing ideologies, but ur problem then is posing the real, true opposites/anti-theses. I'm confident u won't be able to improve on that basic analysis given in Gosp. JOHN, Christian truth vs. Jew lies and conspiracy. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Apollonian
