Jan-June 2001

This news letter from Ramakrishna Homoeo Pharmaceuticals, Hyderabad is devoted to Hepatitis B. NJH last issue was also on jaundice which also covered this aspect. There is a clinical overview of hepatitis B. This issue however contains an important extract from a book - Hepatitis-B Vaccine- All don't need it- by Dr P V R Bhaskara Rao. It is said that 94% of people exposed to Hepatitis B recover while in 1% the disease may become fulminant and may result in death. In 5% of cases the disease may become chronic out of which 4% may become healthy carriers and 1% may develop cirrhosis of liver and cancer. For this fear of the patients becoming chronic and possibility of cancer the Hepatitis B vaccine is propagated. Some of the important points made are:

  1. According to Merck and Company the duration of protective effect of the vaccine in healthy persons is unknown; in about 10% of cases the persons vaccinated will not develop immunity.
  2. The extract brings out extensively the deleterious side effects of this vaccine more particularly in children. During US Senate Congressional hearing many witnesses complained that after this vaccine, complications like autis sclerosis, paralysis. Arthritis, mental confusion and death have occurred. 60% increase in diabetes in New Zealand There the neurological and auto-immune diseases directly to this vaccine were- convulsions, Bell's palsy, Lumbar neuropathy, Myasthenia grais, MS. Gullian-Barre Syndrome, Encephalitis etc
  3. A registered nurse in USA testified that the children who received the first trial of hepatitis B vaccine developed learning disorders, ADD and serious chronic illnesses such as diabetes, asthma and seizures. The NVIC (USA) reported that new- born infants died after the shots and there were also reports of chronic fatigue syndrome and an epidemic of rheumatoid arthritis as reported in a National Rheumatology meeting in 1997. Federal and Drug administration of USA listed 23, 000 adverse reactions after vaccination in adults. One expert said that serious reactions from the vaccine were 16 times greater than the incidence of the disease.
  4. There was a demand for moratorium on this vaccine for school children below 14 years as these are more likely to die or suffer serious adverse reactions after the vaccine than to catch the disease. A victim of MS following the vaccination in France filed a suit against Smith Kline Beecham, which manufactured the vaccine resulted in French Govt suspending mass immunization through this vaccine.
  5. It is reported that a mercury compound used as a preservative of this vaccine can cause brain damage, it is alleged.
  6. This campaign goes on because of the nexus between the pharmaceutical companies and individual physicians and equipment and vaccine manufacturers.
In conclusion the extract says that 1. Not all people need this vaccine; newborn infants born to carrier mothers must be vaccinated after confirming the carrier status of pregnant women; New born infants born to HbsAg negative mothers should not be vaccinated. And in others preventive measures such as preventing HBsAg positive blood transfusion. Avoiding multiple sex partners and non-use of unsterile syringes and needles.
