    Statement on Medical Malpractice Legislation
    September 26, 2002 2002 Ron Paul

    Mr. Speaker, HR 4600 also punishes victims of government mandates by limiting the ability of those who have suffered adverse reactions from vaccines to collect damages. Many of those affected by these provisions are children forced by federal mandates to receive vaccines. Oftentimes, parents reluctantly submit to these mandates in order to ensure their children can attend public school. HR 4600 rubs salt in the wounds of those parents whose children may have been harmed by government policies forcing children to receive unsafe vaccines.

    It is not an inconsistent stance, because it is clear Dr. Paul took the time to research it more, just like Dr. Humphries did. As Dr. Humphries said, as she started to gain more knowledge, she realized that vaccines are filled with things that are simply not safe.

    It's also clear that doctors are force-fed (along with the general public) a lot of disinformation and when they decided to do the research themselves, and gain more knowledge, they are smart enough to put two and two together a whole lot better.

    Thanks for the additions; I haven’t been able to go through all of the information (links) yet…
    I even think that most of the posts of Zippyjuan are worth the read (even though I disagree with just about all of them).

    You appear to ignore that this was not the result of any improvement in health, but by simply forbidding medical doctors to label any disease as polio:

    This is the way how big pharma manipulates the statistics, to show how wonderfully effective their “medicines” are. The same "Non-polio" “acute flaccid paralysis” labeling trick has been performed in India…

    A similar trick was used, when the WHO simply changed the assessment methodology of “Adverse Events Following Immunisation (AEFI)”. See the following thread: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthr...Kids-Quinvaxem

    Sri Lanka introduced the pentavalent vaccine from Crucell in January 2008. Within 3 months, 4 reports of deaths and 24 reports of adverse effects from the vaccine prompted a suspension of the initial vaccine batch. A subsequent death caused by the next batch in April 2009 led the authorities to suspend pentavalent vaccine use and resume DTwP and hepatitis B vaccination.
    Bhutan introduced pentavalent vaccine from Panacea in September 2009. The identification of 5 cases with encephalopathy and/or meningoencephalitis shortly after vaccination prompted the authorities to suspend vaccination on 23 October 2009. Subsequently, 4 additional serious cases related caused by vaccination were identified.
    India introduced pentavalent vaccine from the Serum Institute of India in December 2011. To date, 83 AEFI cases were reported, some of which died.
    Vietnam introduced pentavalent vaccine from Crucell in June 2010. Through May 2013, a total of 43 serious AEFI cases were investigated, including 27 deaths. Following reports on 9 deaths following vaccination between December 2012 and March 2013, health authorities suspended use of the vaccine.
    The team of “independent” experts of the WHO that reviewed the AEFIs, classified the fatal cases as not being caused by the vaccine: http://www.who.int/vaccine_safety/co...e/Jul_2013/en/

    To cover up this black page in vaccine history, the WHO simply changed the assessment methodology of “Adverse Events Following Immunisation (AEFI)” and effectively made it impossible to classify vaccination as the cause of death.
    On 1 January 2008, the vaccine Quinvaxim (Crucell) was introduced in Sri Lanka. The WHO team which “investigated”, first reported that in 3 of the deaths there was plausible temporal association with vaccination, and the deaths could not be attributed to concurrent disease or other drugs or chemicals. According to the standard WHO Brighton classification of AEFI, these 3 deaths had to be classified as “probably” related to immunisation. During this controversy, the AEFI classification was revised; the WHO simply deleted the categories “probable” and “possible” from the Brighton classification and concluded the AEFI were “unlikely” to be related to the vaccine.
    Deaths during post-marketing surveillance cannot be classified as “consistent with causal association with vaccine”, if the vaccine did not cause a statistically significant increase in deaths in the small phase 3 trials. After licensure, all deaths that are seen in the larger post-marketing phase are labelled as “coincidental” deaths or “unclassifiable”. This effectively means that any vaccine that passes the phase 3 trials, per definition – in a great example of science – can never “cause” a single death.
    The WHO team that “investigated” the Vietnam deaths used the revised WHO classification of AEFI.

    The consequences of using the new classification can be seen in the causality assessment of 132 serious AEFI cases in India between 2012 and 2016. Of these 132 cases, 78 babies survived hospitalisation and 54 died. Among those who survived, 37 (47.4% of reactions) were labelled “vaccine-product-related reactions”. On the other hand, 51 (94.4%) of those who died, had reactions that were classified as “unclassifiable” or “coincidental due to something other than vaccine”. Not a single death case was classified as a “vaccine-product-related reaction”: http://ijme.in/articles/deaths-follo...n/?galley=html

    What do you mean by “learned”? In the 1800s medical doctors were “quacks” and in the 21th century they (or shoud I say we?) are completely brainwashed? Or maybe that big pharma has learned how to effectively use vaccines for sterilisation…
    Here’s the report; “LEICESTER: SANITATION versus VACCINATION” by J.T. Biggs, from 1912 when “science” still meant something. Like Angelatc has stressed, Biggs was not some medical quack “Doctor”, but a pig farmer, who knew what he was talking about: http://www.whale.to/a/biggs.html
    The Leicester Anti-Vaccination League was formed in 1869. The stalwart little band of pioneers, numbering less than twenty persons, laboured on, until they grew numerically to such an extent that, whereas in 1867 over 94 per cent of the children born were vaccinated, in 1897 only 1.3 per cent, of the infants were subjected to the trying ordeal. And that low percentage of vaccinations in the last-mentioned year was arrived at in spite of—and perhaps, to some extent, as the natural outcome of—many thousands of prosecutions against defaulters. These were instituted under the oppressive Act of 1867, and resulted in the infliction of fines, the levying of distress warrants, and the commitment of parents to prison. Obviously, those figures demonstrate that the people of Leicester were following the lead of the Anti-Vaccination League, and that not one class only, but all sections of the townspeople, were equally resolute in their opposition and detestation of the hateful legal enactments.

    The experience of the terrible smallpox epidemic of 1871-73, when many thousands of vaccinated persons contracted the disease, and several hundreds died as the result of the alleged "protection" (!) having lamentably failed in its hour of trial, produced in the minds of the thinking people of Leicester pronounced hostility against the blood-polluting quackery, which was found to be more baneful in its ultimate results than the disease it was supposed to prevent.
    See for example the following figure that shows that the unvaccinated Leicester had much lower small pox fatality rates than a couple of vaccinated cities and the vaccinated British army and navy.


    See for example the correlation between the vaccination rate (red) and the death rate of a number of diseases.

    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Default Pesticides

    I’m beginning to think that the polio and AIDS “epidemics” are more similar than most people think.
    From the data I’ve read it looks like either: 1) pesticides is a cause of immune deficiency which makes that people aren’t able to cope with the polio virus anymore, 2) pesticides causes polio like symptoms including paralysis.

    Labelling paralysis first as “polio” and then – after introduction of the vaccine – as “Acute Flaccid Paralysis”. The following graph shows that the number of paralysis cases hasn’t only risen in India, as a result of the massive polio vaccination campaign, but also in the rest of the world, from something like 17,000 in 1996, to 100,000 in 2010. Thanks to the World Health Organisation, UNICEF and the Gates Foundation.


    In 1942, the epidemic of the first half of the century subsided, and there were fewer than 5,000 cases of polio in the United States. Around 1948, the number of polio cases began to soar. Polio reached a peak in 1949, with nearly 43,000 cases. By 1951 the number had dropped to below 28,000. Following a government-subsidised study of polio vaccine, the number soared to an all-time high of more than 55,000 cases.
    Most diagnoses were based upon clinical observation, not sophisticated virological studies. After introduction of the vaccine, the number of polio cases decreased, while the number of meningitis cases increased. Most cases reported as non-paralytic poliomyelitis prior to 1 July 1958 were after that reported as viral or aseptic meningitis.

    According to Jonas Salk, the live virus polio vaccine developed by Dr. Albert Sabin was:
    the principal if not the sole cause of the 140 vaccine cases reported in the U.S. since 1961. At the present time the risk of acquiring polio from the live virus vaccine is greater than from naturally occurring viruses.

    Since 1940, pesticides were introduced in Europe and North America.
    See what looks like correlation between the amount of insecticides and polio cases from 1912 to 1963 in England and Wales.



    Mortin S. Biskind was one of the first to see the pesticides as the cause of the polio “epidemic”:
    Central nervous system diseases such as polio are actually the physiological and symptomatic manifestations of the ongoing government and industry sponsored inundation of the world's populace with central nervous system poisons.
    (...)
    When the population is exposed to a chemical agent known to produce in animals lesions in the spinal cord resembling those in human polio, and thereafter the latter disease increases sharply in incidence and maintains its epidemic character year after year, is it unreasonable to suspect an etiologic relationship?
    Biskind’s views fell into disfavour with the establishment, who favoured that polio was caused by a virus. By October 1955, Biskind’s career was destroyed.
    See the correlation between the most used chemicals, DDT, BHC, Arsenic and Lead, and the number of “polio” cases from 1940 to 1970.

    Leicester is relevant to history because of those who worship Jenner and the perpetuated lie pro-vaxxers have use to point out how small pox vaccines saved lives-- but those of us who study history know that is simply not true.

    Are you familiar with raw unfiltered and unpasteurized apple cider vinegar did more in the late 1800's for small pox than vaccines?

    As Hitler's propaganda minster once said:

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    What does that make you in the real world?

    That's precisely what I was thinking when reading your garbage posts!

    I’ve read some general information on polio; the official story appears to contradict itself.

    When most people think about the horrors of polio, they think that it’s some horrible infectious disease that causes paralysis. In reality, according to the official numbers only 0.5% of the infected suffer from paralysis. Polio can be classed in 4 severities:
    1 – In more than 90% of the cases, the polio infection causes antibodies to develop, without symptoms, and the person doesn't even know that infection occurred.
    2 - The majority of the remaining less than 10%, suffer some flu-like symptoms: fever, digestive upset and possibly a cough. This infection has no lasting effects, except immunity.
    3 – For a small percentage, polio reaches its “second stage, and reaches the Central Nervous System (CNS), these patients get seriously ill, but don’t suffer any permanent damage.
    4 - For about 1 in 200 who are exposed, that polio reaches the CNS and paralyses enough motor neurons that control anywhere from one limb to the whole spinal cord. If the infection reaches motor neurons that are high in the spinal cord or in the brain, death is the likely result.

    When you read this, you must conclude that:
    1) It’s impossible to know (or even estimate) how many people are infected by polio, as more than 95% doesn’t suffer from a major illness and don't go to the doctor.
    2) Because only a small percentage of the polio patients get paralysed (or even die), it’s almost impossible to know for sure that this was the result of the polio, as it’s impossible to rule out other causes. I can only imagine some horrible experiments, in which this could be determined. Determining that this percentage is 1 in 200 is completely impossible...

    Because there’s no way to determine how many people are infected with polio, the number of polio cases is founded on fantasy. Furthermore the number of polio cases doesn’t even matter, as most people that are infected by it, don’t suffer anything grave.
    This means that the only reasonable way to estimate how bad the polio “epidemic” is, is by the number of Acute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP) cases. By general consensus the amount of AFP cases has increased enormously.

    By general consensus the polio virus had been active for hundreds of years. And until the beginning of the twentieth century never caused any “epidemics” or great calamities.
    The first serious polio outbreak happened in 1916, “coincidentally” in New York, with over 27,000 known cases and over 6,000 deaths. By multiplying 6,000 by 200 (in reality according to the official statistrics, I should multiply this by even more...) this means that at least 1,200,000 people were infected with polio. This is completely ridiculous, and in a complete disregard with the “official” statistics, a maximum of 120,000 infected is named.

    By general consensus, polio is easier transmitted with poor hygiene, and it is claimed that sanitation level improved in the 20th century (at least in the developed world).
    This raises the contradiction that in the hundreds of years before 1916, polio would have been worse...
    This means that polio's doesn’t comply with Farr's Law; big pharma invented a unique argument (which almost per definition means it’s bad science). I’ll try to explain this bizarre hypothesis as well as I can.
    Supposedly when a baby is born in a “dirty” environment, it gets polio antibodies from its mother (who must have been exposed to polio). Then the baby gets infected within a couple of months after birth, and is still “protected”, and then becomes immune for polio, without anyone noticing that the baby was infected...
    With better hygiene, either the mother was never infected (so cannot pass the antibodies to the baby) or the baby doesn’t get infected in the first months (when it still has the antibodies of the mother).

    According to this bizarre hypothesis (which is the official explanation), with better hygiene (in particular) the number people infected with polio comes down, which means that this would be the only way to eradicate polio (never mind nutrition, which isn’t part of the agenda of our health care officials). But then because relatively more people get infected, when they don’t have the inherited protection from the mother, the consequences of polio or more grave (including more AFP cases that are caused by polio).
    Just by looking at the rising number of paralysis cases, we can see that something is wrong in the state propaganda they want us to believe. It’s more probable of course that paralysis isn’t caused by polio, but by something else (like for example pesticides)...

    After Mortind Biskind, in April 1949, published his study on neuropsychiatric manifestations of DDT, he was attacked with blatantly false data.

    On 25 April 1955, the polio vaccination program encountered disaster when “faulty” vaccines manufactured by the Cutter Laboratory in California were discovered. The incidence rate was 17 per 100,000 for one month.
    In 1958, incidence rates of over 400 per 100,000 per month were found in Detroit with the polio vaccines, which was swept under the carpet.

    Alexander Langmuir lobbied Congress, to give the CDC contingent powers to deal with potential emergencies. In July 1951, he assembled the first class of the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS). New EIS officers were first assigned for 2 years to hospitals or state and local health departments in the US. Upon completing their field experience, EIS alumni – as agents for the CDC – infiltrated the medical community.
    According to British epidemiologist Gordon Stewart, a former CDC consultant, the EIS was nicknamed the "medical CIA”: http://www.wellwithin1.com/pol_all.htm

    In 1928, the German born Henry Kumm joined the Rockefeller Foundation for Medical Research.
    In 1951, Kumm resigned from the Rockefeller Foundation to a position as assistant director of research at the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. He conducted field trials in the study of gamma globulin and the Salk vaccine and became the Director Of Polio Research at NFIP in 1954.
    After his wonderful work on polio, Kumm rejoined the Rockefeller Foundation in 1959: http://www.medicalarchives.jhmi.edu/papers/kumm.html
    (archived here: http://archive.is/dmOmz)


    During 1933-1937, there were a total of 37,463 poliomyelitis cases in total (4,930 deaths).
    From 1938-1942 31,993 cases in total (4,165 deaths).
    In 1943 12,449 cases (1,115 deaths).
    In 1944, 19,029 cases (1,433 deaths).
    In 1945, 13,619 cases (1,189 deaths).

    Despite the declining cases of polio in the US, in 1946, President Harry S. Truman declared the “War on polio” (where have I heard the “War on ...” before?).
    In some sick experiments DDT was sprayed on cities to fight polio. For example on 27 August 1945, a bomber spayed Rockford, IL with DDT and in 1946, a massive amount of DDT was sprayed in San Antonio, TX. The results of these “experiments” were never released.
    In a great effort to replicate these wonderful experiments...

    In 1946, the number of reported polio cases hit 25,191 — nearly twice the number of 1945.
    In 1947, the cases dropped to 10,737 (580 deaths).
    In 1948, a huge increase to 27,680 (2,140 deaths).
    During 1949-1951, the number of polio cases remained high with a total of 103,719 (an annual average of 34,573).
    In 1951, DDT fumigation in the US was at a peak.
    In 1952, the number of polio cases peaked at 52,879.
    And then began to decline (before polio vaccination was introduced) to 35,592 in 1953, 38,476 in 1954 and 28,985 in 1955: http://www.thevaccinereaction.org/20...fall-of-polio/
    (archived here: http://archive.is/Jf6P5)


    After introduction of the polio vaccine in the USA, the number of polio cases actually increased. Obviously some doctors didn’t understand that they had to report these cases differently after the vaccine had been introduced...
    Vermont reported 15 cases of polio during the one-year report before 30 August 1954 (before mass vaccination), compared to 55 cases of polio in the following year (a 266% increase).
    Rhode Island reported 22 cases before as compared to 122 cases after vaccination (a 454% increase).
    Massachusetts went from 273 to 2027 polio cases (a 642% increase).
    In New Hampshire the figures increased from 38 to 129; in Connecticut from 144 to 276;


    During the 1950s, doctors and scientists on the staff of the NIH knew that the Salk vaccine caused polio and refused to vaccinate their own children. Some health departments banned the vaccination.
    The Idaho State Health Director declared: “I hold the Salk vaccine and its manufacturers responsible” for the polio outbreak that killed several and hospitalized dozens more.
    In the mid-1990s, during a period of less than 5 year, 13,641 adverse reactions to the oral polio vaccine were reported: http://vaxtruth.org/2012/03/the-polio-vaccine-part-2-2/

    (archived here: http://archive.is/ArQps)
    India has made great progress towards eradicating polio and has had excellent AFP surveillance. Since 2004 there was rapid increase in the non-polio AFP rate, which reached 8 in 2007 (Table I). The increase in non-polio AFP rate is mainly limited to the two polio hyperendemic states of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar(3).
    The “Non-Polio” AFP rate in India went from 1.45 in 1998 to 8.45 in 2007 (an increase of 483% in 10 years).

    On the following site the official numbers of AFP cases can be seen from 2000 to 2016, globally the numbers went from: 30,625 in 2000 to 109,807 in 2016 (an increase of 259% in 16 years).

    Default DDT, Dicofol, infant mortality

    I thought that a limited topic like polio vaccines wasn’t too much information, but it looks like there’s a sheer limitless amount of dirt...

    In 1972, in the US DDT was prohibited, but instead they continued to produce “dicofol” (a.k.a. Kelthane), which is really DDT in disguise.
    K. Paul Stoller – AD, AFP, ALS, and DDT (2015): http://journalijcar.org/sites/defaul...files/0151.pdf
    (archived here: http://archive.is/QmJa7)
    DDT was/is used in the United States to control insects in crops and livestock and to combat insect-borne diseases. It was introduced as a pesticide during WWII. In the United States, the general use moratorium took place in 1972, but there is another pesticide dicofol, which is made and sold by Dow AgroSciences and carries the trademark KELTHANE® , is in fact DDT. In China dicofol is produced by the Yangzhou Pesticide Factory, which reports production quantities of 4 million pounds of dicofol per year.
    (…)
    This class of insecticide (organochlorine) impacts the electrical activity in the body, so it affects brain and heart, but also there are other organs that use electrical current, including the lungs. It clearly affects the immune system and causes cancer, and the best part is that it doesn’t break down in the environment other than to become DDE (and DDD).
    (…)
    India, which manufactures and uses the most DDT, was declared free of polio in 2011, but cases of AFP have skyrocketed.

    Stoller refers to a nice paper describing research by the US Army Medical Research and Development Command (with MIT) that shows that at the 20 and 40 μg levels of DDT, the yield of polio virus per cell was increased 37 and 90%, respectively. It is reasonable to postulate that it could also increase the replication of other viruses.
    Also look for Kelthane (that replaced DDT) which increases the yield of the polio virus with a whopping 430%...

    J. Gabliks – Studies of Biologically Active Agents in Cells and Tissue Cultures (1967): http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/804387.pdf
    (archived here: http://archive.is/b7CDg)
    insecticidal compounds DDT, chlordane, Kelthane , Dipterex malathion, and Karathane at subtoxic concentrations inhibited vaccinia virus replication in human Chang liver cellq. Under the same experimental conditions, the replication of poliovirus was inhibited only by chlordane and malthion, whereas Kelthane increased the virus yields 4 and 18 times, respectivaly, and DDT exhibited a slight stimulatory effect.
    (…)
    The studies described in the Annual Progress Report of 1965 indicated that human HeLa cells exposed to subtoxic concentrations of the insecticidal compounds, CygonR, DipterexR, DI-SystonR, chlordane and Karathane for 84 days were more susceptible to poliovirus infection than the corresponding control cells (1,2).
    As it is recognized that residues of some agricultural insecticides persist in the body and that cells are continuously exposed to their metabolites, we investigated the possibility that these chemicals may alter certain physiological activities of cells and subsequently influence the susceptibility of hosts to virus infections.
    The effects of organophosphorus, organochlorine and dinitrophenol insecticidal compounds on the replication of polio and of vaccinia viruses were studied in human Chang liver cells, using purified or analytical grade comnounds obtained from their manufacturers.
    (…)
    In the poliovirus test the cell response was not uniform. In comparison to the controls, the virus yield in the DDT-treated cultures was slightly increased; the yield in the chlordane and malathion cultures was reduced (32 and 18% of the controls); and the yield in the Kelthane and Karathane cultures was greatly increased (430 and 1800% respectively).
    (…)
    The stimulatorv effect by DDT, Kelthane, and Karathane on poliovirus replication suggests a possibility that these compounds may have some specific effects on the mechanisms of viral biosynthesis. This possibility is supported by the results of our previous report which indicated an increased yield of poliovirus in HeLa cells exposed to Karathane for 77 days(2).
    (…)
    Appendix Number 1
    EFFECTS OF INSECTICIDAL COMPOUNDS ON THE REPLICATION OF JACCINIA AND POLIO VIRUSES IN HUMAN CHANG LIVER CELLS
    Janis Gabliks
    (…)
    To investiqate the effects of insecticidal comuounds on viral virus replication, we tested six insecticidal compounds in human liver cells infected with vaccinia and poliovirus.
    (…)
    In the presence of 20 and 40 μg levels of DDT, poliovirus yield per culture was comparable to that of the control. However, when the yield of infectious virus released is expressed per individual cell or per ig of cell protein, as shown in Figure 3, it is evident that at the 20 and 40 μg levels of DDT, the yield of virus per cell was increased 37 and 90%, respectively. Similarly, the yield per μg of protein was also increased 15 and 47%, respectively
    (…)
    In contrast to the inhibitory action of these two insecticides, the Kelthane-treated cultures produced about four times more virus, and the Karathane-treated cells 18 times more virus than the corresponding controls.
    (…)
    The stimulatory effect by DDT, Kelthane, and Karathane on poliovirus replication suggests a possibility that these compounds may have some specific effects on the mechanisms of viral biosynthesis, and the state of some latent viruses may also be altered. This possibility is supported by the results of our previous report which indicated an increased yield of poliovirus in HeLa cells, chronically exposed to Karathane for 77 days (7,8).

    The following study writes about a previous study, where the Oral Polio Vaccine (OPV) raised the death rate in children (only significant for boys). But this couldn’t be repeated in this study.
    This study in Guinea-Bissau is the only in its kind. Can anybody think of any reason for why big pharma wouldn’t research that the polio vaccines causes death…
    This study could be completely worthless, as it wasn’t single blind (let alone double blind) and there are also admitted effects that there were other ongoing polio vaccination campaigns, for which the data was manipulated (censored); the study doesn’t describe how it was “censored” (I can’t remember that in the course statistics that I followed at university “censoring” was mentioned...).

    Najaaraq Lund et al – The Effect of Oral Polio Vaccine at Birth on Infant Mortality: A Randomized Trial (2015): https://academic.oup.com/cid/article...ne-at-Birth-on
    (archived here: http://archive.is/LfMUk )
    Background. Routine vaccines may have nonspecific effects on mortality. An observational study found that OPV given at birth (OPV0) was associated with increased male infant mortality.
    (…)
    A supplementation conducted from 2002 to 2004 in Guinea-Bissau, the country experienced a period with a shortage of OPV; a total of 962 trial participants did not receive the recommended OPV0. Surprisingly, boys who missed OPV0 had significantly lower infant mortality compared with boys who received OPV0 (adjusted mortality rate ratio [MRR], 0.35 [95% confidence interval {CI}, .18–.71]) [24]. The tendency was opposite for girls (adjusted MRR, 1.14 [95% CI, .70–1.89]); thus, the effect of OPV0 differed significantly between boys and girls (P = .006). Receiving OPV0 was also associated with reduced immune responses to BCG in both sexes [25].
    (...)
    Children randomized to OPV received 2 drops of the vaccine orally immediately after randomization. There was no placebo or blinding. Guinea-Bissau does not have a central vaccination registry, so it was important that the vaccination card contained the correct information if a child moved from the HDSS area.
    (…)
    The main outcome was overall mortality (excluding accidents) within the first 12 months of life. In addition, we analyzed the “pure” effect of OPV0 on survival from enrollment to age 6 weeks, before controls were likely to receive the first routine OPV.
    Furthermore, the protocol specified that if large campaigns were conducted during follow-up, analyses would also be conducted with censoring for such campaigns. Thus, we analyzed the impact on infant mortality with censoring for subsequent national OPV campaign, as OPV campaigns could potentially neutralize any differential effect of OPV0. During the conduct of the trial, there was also a national MV campaign (December 2009) and an H1N1 vaccine campaign (October 2010), both targeting children aged 6 months to 5 years. In additional analyses, we censored for these campaigns.
    (…)
    Based on previous observations [31], we anticipated an infant mortality rate of 50 per 1000 participants. However, during the study period, infant mortality declined to 26 per 1000 person-years. This reduced the power to detect a difference between groups. An interim report for the DSMB showed significantly higher mortality among children randomized to BCG only. As this was in favor of current policy, the DSMB recommended that the number of participants not be increased to compensate for the lower mortality.
    (...)
    Table 2.
    Infant Mortality Rates and Hazard Ratios for Children Randomized to BCG Plus Oral Polio Vaccine at Birth or BCG Only, Guinea-Bissau, 2008–2011

    (…)
    Within censoring for OPV campaigns (mean duration of follow-up = 163 days), 41 died in the BCG + OPV0 group and 60 died in the BCG-only group.
    (...)
    Contrary to our initial hypothesis, both male and female children who received OPV0 with BCG tended to have better survival than those who received BCG only. As in a previous study, receiving OPV0 within the first days of life appeared to be associated with the strongest benefits. Many OPV campaigns occurred during the trial; when censoring for these campaigns, the beneficial effect of receiving OPV0 was borderline significant overall and significant separately in males.
    (...)
    A weakness of our study is that it was not blinded. However, health workers in the area were unaware of the study hypothesis and were unlikely to be influenced when treating the children. The outcome assessment was carried out by assistants unaware of the vaccination allocation. Hence, we do not believe that the lack of blinding affected the results.
    In addition, national OPV campaigns could have led to environmental acquisition in children born in the period after a campaign. It is likely that, in a population-dense urban setting, indirect vaccination also occurs in the absence of OPV campaigns, through close contact with newly vaccinated children. This exposure, if anything, would be expected to dilute any differences between children who received OPV0 or no OPV0.
    All background factors were evenly distributed between the 2 randomization groups and did not confound the results. OPV0 had the best effect among children enrolled early. Early enrollment could be a proxy for better socioeconomic status, as it is typically the more wealthy mothers who delivered at the maternity ward and were enrolled early.
    (...)
    In 2004 there were several campaigns, and none in 2007, but many during the present trial. Censoring for these campaigns made the results more comparable, as OPV0 tended to be most beneficial before additional OPV was given in campaigns.

    Also see the rising numbers in reported AFP cases from 1993 to 1995 in Cambodia, China, Lao PDR, Philippines, in the 6 countries totally from 2674 to 5644 (more than double in 2 years).

    (arvchived here: http://archive.is/j3DKR)
    The effect of OPV at birth on overall child mortality was never studied. During a trial of vitamin A supplementation (VAS) at birth in Guinea-Bissau, OPV was not available during several periods. We took advantage of this “natural experiment” to test the effect on mortality of receiving OPV at birth.
    (...)
    A total of 962 (22.1%) of the 4345 enrolled children did not receive OPV at birth; 179 children died within the first year of life. Missing OPV at birth was associated with a tendency for decreased mortality (adjusted MRR = 0.69 (95% CI = 0.46–1.03)), the effect being similar among recipients of VAS and placebo. There was a highly significant interaction between OPV at birth and sex (p = 0.006). Not receiving OPV at birth was associated with a weak tendency for increased mortality in girls (1.14 (0.70–1.89)) but significantly decreased mortality in boys (0.35 (0.18–0.71)).
    (...)
    Furthermore, we also conducted one study of an OPV campaign; receiving OPV in the campaign compared with not receiving OPV was associated with significantly decreased mortality among the youngest children [9].
    (...)
    A total of 962 children (22.1%) of the 4345 enrolled children did not receive OPV at birth (Appendix S1). There were significant differences between those who did and those who did not receive OPV at birth (Table 1). Not having received OPV at birth was associated with low age at enrolment, no maternal school education, low arm circumference, being enrolled at the Belem Health Centre, and dry season (Table 1).
    (...)
    The cumulative mortality curves for all children and for boys and girls separately, are illustrated in Figures 2A–C. The effect of not receiving OPV at birth on mortality up to 2 months of age (53 deaths) was 0.39 (0.12–1.29) among boys and 1.38 (0.54–3.57) among girls (p = 0.099). However, the effect of not receiving OPV at birth was not limited to the first months of life, but appeared to continue throughout the first year of life.

    (...)
    We studied the effect of missing OPV at birth on the major causes of death: malaria, diarrhoea, respiratory diseases and septicaemia; 58 deaths had other less common causes of death or had no verbal autopsy conducted because the family had moved. Though none of the differences reached statistical significance, the sex-differential effect of OPV at birth was seen for all four major causes of death (Table 3).
    (...)
    Among study children, a total of 366 hospitalisations took place from enrolment to 12 months of age. We found no effect of missing OPV at birth on the risk of hospitalisations within the first year in either sex; the adjusted IRR among boys being 0.84 (0.59–1.20) and 1.05 (0.68–1.63) among girls. The effect of missing OPV at birth on hospital case-fatality also did not differ between boys and girls, the adjusted relative risks being 1.04 (0.45–2.40) and 1.30 (0.55–3.07), respectively.
    (…)
    It strengthens the observation that the effect of not receiving OPV was comparable during the two major independent periods without OPV. Though no significant associations were observed between not receiving OPV at birth and major causes of death, hospitalization or hospital case-fatality, the pattern was the same. For all major causes of death there was lower mortality for boys and higher for girls if they had not received OPV; for both hospitalization and case-fatality there was a 20–25% difference between boys and girls which went in the same direction as the overall result. Hence, the results are compatible with the hypothesis that OPV at birth increases mortality of infant boys. Many factors influence a mother's choice to bring the child to the hospital, and hospitalizations may not be the best proxy for severe disease. The vast majority of children died outside the hospital.
