MMR measles vaccine clinical trial results FAKED by Big Pharma - shocking U.S. court documents reveal all.

According to two Merck scientists who filed a False Claims Act complaint in 2010 -- a complaint which was unsealed three years ago -- vaccine manufacturer Merck knowingly falsified its mumps vaccine test data, spiked blood samples with animal antibodies, sold a vaccine that actually promoted mumps and measles outbreaks, and ripped off governments and consumers who bought the vaccine thinking it was "95% effective."

Perhaps we should wait until we find out whether the accusations have any merit before passing judgment?

Edited to add: There is no claim that the vaccine is dangerous, only that the effectiveness was overstated. It only applies to the mumps vaccine.

AksarbeN I appreciate the info

As I have said before- I look at all vaccinations closely.....
So many people just blindly follow the program & do what they're told to do......

With any vaccines-- people should investigate every aspect
of each particular vaccine before subjecting their kids to them.....

And of course the pharma ppl are hiding quite a bit, actually
It's all about the $$$

Perhaps you're right...Merck, has demonstrated such honesty and forthrightness in all their dealings...

Merck & Co. agreed to pay $950 million and plead guilty to a criminal misdemeanor charge to resolve government allegations that the company illegally promoted its former painkiller Vioxx and deceived the government about the drug's safety.

The settlement of a seven-year U.S. government investigation brings Merck
closer to resolving the mountain of litigation that followed the company's 2004
withdrawal of the big-selling drug from the market after a study showed it
increased the risk for heart attacks and strokes.

It marks the latest big payout by a drug company to settle health-care fraud
allegations, underscoring heightened government scrutiny of the way drug makers
do business...

...A controversial government-backed cervical cancer vaccine is ineffective, has

company that’s made huge profits selling it to girls and young women.

It marks the most disturbing inside information exposed about the vaccine,
Gardasil, which is manufactured by pharmaceutical giant Merck. The vaccine was
scandalously fast-tracked by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has been
ardently promoted by the Obama administration as a miracle shot that can prevent
certain strains of cervical cancer caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV)...

alternative”, and emphasized the vaccine's long record of safety and
effectiveness.)...

several studies of their popular cholesterol drug Zetia that raised questions
about its risks to the liver, yet the companies never published those results.
Similar charges of suppressing research results were made in connection with the companies’ Enhance
medication. In 2009 Merck and Schering-Plough agreed to pay $41 million to settle class-action
lawsuits charging that the companies withheld unfavorable results of a clinical
trial of the cholesterol drugs Vytorin and Zetia.

In 2008 the FDA ordered Merck to correct numerous manufacturing
deficiencies at its main vaccine plant in Pennsylvania.

The problems with lying, is that no one can tell for sure when one is actually telling the truth. The accusation that the mumps vaccine isn't as effective as Merck promised and labeled their products not only affects the company's bottom line - it affects lives. It affects people's decisions whether to use their medicines and their vaccines. And their history means something...

Jenny McCarthy has nothing to do with it. Merck is doing a good job of decreasing consumer confidence all by themselves. Unfortunately, they have the monopoly on the MMR vaccine in the US. People are basically stuck with them, or they choose to go without.

The way you quoted makes it difficult to respond point by point.

However:

There are patients who wish Vioxx was still available. Merck should not withhold any study results on the drug, obviously. However, it was very effective for many people, who would have continued the drug even if the risks were higher than Merck claimed.

Gardasil is not ineffective. It is highly effective, and a new version has just been approved by the FDA.

FDA approves Gardasil 9 for prevention of certain cancers caused by five additional types of HPV

Why should Merck have to alter a vaccine because you do not like the production method? That has nothing to do with safety or effectiveness. Perhaps you and those who feel the way you do should put up the money to produce a rubella vaccine (and separate measles and mumps vaccines) that you find acceptable. That would apply to other vaccines grown in cell cultures. Note that the Catholic Church deems it acceptable to take such vaccines.

Zetia and Vytorin:

Zetia, Vytorin reduce risk of repeat heart attacks

I suspect you will be very unhappy if the current charges against Merck turn out not to be true.

"Federal government ignored false claims filing against Merck, continues to push fraudulent vaccine on public"


Quote:
Other alleged transgressions include Merck swindling the U.S. government out of "hundreds of millions of dollars for a vaccine that does not provide adequate immunization," as well as promoting the spread of mumps with its fraudulent vaccine. This elaborate scam, which the duo says has been taking place since the late 1990s, has allowed Merck to monopolize the vaccine market, specifically with regard to MMR vaccines.

It makes it difficult for some of the news organizations, TV, radio, and periodicals to put this type of story up front on the air for the public because of the advertising sponsors that pay them large sums of money. The news media has been bought and paid for by pharma.

Like I say, let the court find out what the truth is. Or is Merck guilty just because the case is in court?

The allegation is that Merck overstated the effectiveness of the vaccine. However, it must be doing something, because the US does not have many mumps cases each year.

Mumps | Cases and Outbreaks | CDC

"In 2011-2013, there were several smaller mumps outbreaks reported on college campuses in California, Virginia, and Maryland. However, these all had limited spread, and national case counts for these years were at usual levels (several hundred cases per year).
In 2009- 2010, two large outbreaks occurred.
One outbreak involved about 3,000 people and mostly affected high school-aged students who were part of an insular religious community in New York City and attended schools in which they had very close contact. The index case-patient was an 11-year-old member of the religious community who had returned from the United Kingdom where a large mumps outbreak was occurring.
The second outbreak involved about 500 people, mostly school-aged children, in the U.S. Territory of Guam.
In 2007-2008, the number of reported cases returned to usual levels (several hundred cases per year), and outbreaks involved fewer than 20 cases.
In 2006, the United States experienced a multi-state mumps outbreak involving more than 6,500 reported cases. This resurgence predominantly affected college-aged students living in the Midwest, with outbreaks occurring on many different Midwestern college campuses."
