Gardasil - HPV Vaccination
Human papilloma virus vaccine and primary ovarian failure: another facet of the autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants.
Colafrancesco S1, Perricone C, Tomljenovic L, Shoenfeld Y.
PROBLEM:Post-vaccination autoimmune phenomena are a major facet of the autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA) and different vaccines, including HPV, have been identified as possible causes.
METHOD OF STUDY:The medical history of three young women who presented with secondary amenorrhea following HPV vaccination was collected. Data regarding type of vaccine, number of vaccination, personal, clinical and serological features, as well as response to treatments were analyzed.
RESULTS:All three patients developed secondary amenorrhea following HPV vaccinations, which did not resolve upon treatment with hormone replacement therapies. In all three cases sexual development was normal and genetic screen revealed no pertinent abnormalities (i.e., Turner's syndrome, Fragile X test were all negative). Serological evaluations showed low levels of estradiol and increased FSH and LH and in two cases, specific auto-antibodies were detected (antiovarian and anti thyroid), suggesting that the HPV vaccine triggered an autoimmune response. Pelvic ultrasound did not reveal any abnormalities in any of the three cases. All three patients experienced a range of common non-specific post-vaccine symptoms including nausea, headache, sleep disturbances, arthralgia and a range of cognitive and psychiatric disturbances. According to these clinical features, a diagnosis of primary ovarian failure (POF) was determined which also fulfilled the required criteria for the ASIA syndrome.
CONCLUSION:We documented here the evidence of the potential of the HPV vaccine to trigger a life-disabling autoimmune condition. The increasing number of similar reports of post HPV vaccine-linked autoimmunity and the uncertainty of long-term clinical benefits of HPV vaccination are a matter of public health that warrants further rigorous inquiry.

The Gardasil Timeline – A History of Corruption and Negative Reactions
The HPV shot Gardasil has a history that is not only filled with adverse reactions and death, but also political corruption. In fact, many are completely unaware as to what extent Gardasil was pushed on the public using bribery, omission of numerical facts, and complete lies. With so much news coming out on the Gardasil vaccine, it is a challenge to keep up with the documentation. Without seeing the recent history of Gardasil, you simply cannot put together all of the pieces. The Gardasil timeline unveils how Merck, the manufacturer of Gardasil, is working behind the scenes to put profits over the health of you and your family. Evidence Mounts: 49 Girls Die, Thousands of Others Hospitalized After Receiving the Gardasil Vaccine The evidence linking Gardasil to adverse reactions and death was available long before legislators began pushing it on pre-pubescent children. Shockingly, the HPV shot led to 3,589 harmful reactions and 16 deaths between May 2009 and September 2010 alone. Of the 3,589 adverse reactions, many were debilitating. Permanent disability was the result of 213 cases; 25 resulted in the diagnosis of Guillain-Barre Syndrome; there were 789 other “serious” reports according to FDA documents.
What is even more compelling is the fact that HPV infections oftentimes resolve themselves without intervention. In fact, 90% of HPV infections resolve themselves after 2 years without Gardasil, according to Dr. Diane Harper, who was the lead researcher during the creation of Gardasil.
Furthermore, extended history has shown that the Gardasil vaccine has repeatedly been politically mandated and subsequently rejected due to health concerns. Still, history continues to repeat itself. In August 2008, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) required all female immigrants between the ages of 11 and 26 to receive at least one dose of the Gardasil vaccination if they planned on entering the United States. The requirement was lifted on December 14, 2009. Countless immigrants were affected, with officials admitting regret over the initial instatement.
“If we had known about it, we would have said it’s not a good idea,” said Jon Abramson, the former chairman of the CDC’s Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices.
California Legislators Push for Gardasil Bill, Found to be Bribed by Merck In August 2011, Assembly Bill 499 was proposed by California Assembly Member Tony Atkins. The bill allows for children as young as 12 to receive the HPV shot Gardasil without any parental consent, thus completely removing parents from the important decision of whether or not to receive the death-linked HPV shot.
Shortly after the news was announced, a report by Cal Watchdog revealed that Merck was giving monetary incentives to key California legislators in order for the bill to pass. Both legislators from the assembly and senate received figures reaching around $3500. Of course the several thousand dished out by Merck is nothing compared to the millions they stood to make from the passing of the bill. The legislation passed, and it then went to the desk of California governor Jerry Brown.
Gardasil Found to Contain Genetically Modified rDNA of HPV Virus As the Gardasil bill was sitting on the desk of California governor Jerry Brown, researchers released a bombshell report over the contents of the Gardasil vaccine. Vials of Gardasil from around the globe were found to be contaminated with rDNA of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Conducted by the organization SANE Vax, the tests revealed that the HPV virus had been genetically modified and inserted into the Gardasil vaccine. Far from natural, the rDNA has serious long-term consequences.
Dr. Lee, the pathologist who ran the tests, explained:
“Natural HPV DNA does not remain in the bloodstream for very long. However, the HPV DNA in Gardasil is not ‘natural’ DNA. It is a recombinant HPV DNA (rDNA) — genetically engineered — to be inserted into yeast cells for VLP (virus-like-particle) protein production. rDNA is known to behave differently from natural DNA. It may enter a human cell, especially in an inflammatory lesion caused by the effects of the aluminum adjuvant, via poorly understood mechanisms. Once a segment of recombinant DNA is inserted into a human cell, the consequences are hard to predict. It may be in the cell temporarily or stay there forever, with or without causing a mutation. Now the host cell contains human DNA as well as genetically engineered viral DNA.”
Of course Jerry Brown and other California health officials ignored this information as the Gardasil bill was signed into law.
California Gardasil Law Signed, Children to Receive the Gardasil Vaccine Without Parental Consent California governor Jerry Brown signed the Gardasil bill into law on October 11, 2011. California children are now set to be given the HPV vaccine, linked to thousands of adverse reactions, without any parental consent at all. Of course California school districts have been found to go to extreme lengths when it comes to students receiving government-recommended shots, with school officials visiting the homes of children equipped with the school nurse and an arsenal of vaccinations.
Even more concerning than the bill allowing for young children to decide whether or not to receive the Gardasil shot themselves is the deceptive Gardasil ad campaign launched by Merck.
Mecrk Omits Gardasil Death Link, Numerical Facts on Official Website and in Ad Campaign Merck not only fails to mention the link between death and the HPV shot Gardasil on their website and in their popular magazine ads, but they also fail to mention any of the severe side effects. Merck lists only minor side effects that sound relatively harmless and would not raise any red flags for the average consumer who has not researched Gardasil.
On their official website, Merck lists the known side effects as:
- Pain, swelling, itching, bruising, and redness at the injection site
Merck’s magazine ads also list similar side effects, failing to include the death link. The ad goes on to say that the HPV vaccine will not protect everyone against diseases caused by HPV. Of course this may sound like Merck is being at least slightly transparent here, but of course they are not. Not only do 70% of all HPV infections resolve themselves within a year, but within 2 years that percentage rises to 90%.
FDA Documents Reveal 26 Hidden Gardasil Deaths Thanks to legal action by the Judicial Watch, the FDA was forced to release 26 adverse reaction reports revealing an additional 26 deaths as a result of the HPV shot Gardasil.
One such report states:
The information was received from the patient’s mother … concerning her healthy 14-year-old daughter who in August 2007, January 2008, and June 2008, was vaccinated with a first, second and third dose of Gardasil … It was reported that the patient experienced several symptoms including numbness and tingling in her fingers and toes, fatigue, a really hard time falling asleep, urinary tract infections, ovarian cyst, moody, trouble getting out of bed and seizures. The patient had had upwards of 150 seizures following her third shot in June 2008. During her seizures she stopped breathing for periods of 30 to 40 seconds. The patient was diagnosed with Neurocardiogenic syndrome and seizures. It was reported that the patient died due to ovarian cyst. The reporter felt that the patient’s symptoms were related to vaccination with Gardasil.
The findings not only add to the mountain of evidence against Gardasil, but also raise questions as to whether or not there are more hidden deaths that have yet to be released.
The Future of Gardasil: In Your Hands A government advisory committee is now requesting that the CDC recommend Gardasil for boys between the ages of 11 and 12, expanding the current recommendation that only pertains to girls. As Gardasil is given to young children in California under the guise of a necessary and safe method of HPV prevention, it is important that the truth about Gardasil is shared with consumers. With enough proverbial force behind it, the anti-Gardasil movement can not only challenge the Gardasil law, but educate the masses to such a degree that they will not be receiving it regardless of legislation.
Educate your children, friends, family, and complete strangers about the dangers of Gardasil.

Serious Allegations against HPV Vaccine Trials Affecting Thousands of Girls Accepted by Supreme Court of India
On January 7, 2013, Ms. Leslie Carol Botha, Women’s Health Educator and long-time advocate for HPV vaccine safety awareness , released an urgent article entitled: India Women Activists Historic Writ of Petition Accepted by Supreme Court over Unethical Trialing of HPV Vaccines, Gardasil® and Cervarix®.
Based on the press release issued by Kalpana Mehta, Nalini Bhanot and V. Rukmini Rao, representing Gramya Resource Centre for Women from Andhra Pradesh, titled, “India Supreme Court Accepts Writ of Petition on Gardasil & Cervarix Licensing & Trial Violations” implicating the Drug Controller of India, PATH, ICMR and others, ordering the government of India to immediately respond. 
Botha outlined the course of history that led to this groundbreaking hearing, as well as the violations that occurred during the clinical trials and the undisclosed international agenda among the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to unduly influence the Indian government to adopt the vaccines for introduction in the public sector. Botha also detailed the Petitioners’ requests and reliefs as stated in the Writ of Petition, filed on October 29, 2012.
On October 29, 2012, activists Kalpana Mehta and Nalini Bhanot, along with Dr. Rukmini Rao, President of the Gramya Resource Centre for Women in India, filed a writ petition with the Supreme Court of India under Article 32 of The Constitution of India for Women. The petition was filed against:
- Drug Controller General of India
- Indian Council of Medical Research
- State of Andhra Pradesh
- State of Gujarat
- PATH International
- GlaxoSmithKline Asia Private Limited
- MSD Pharmaceuticals Private Limited
The petition outlines a series of serious allegations regarding the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix. Petitioners Kalpana Mehta, Nalini Bhanot and Dr. Rukmini Rao reported that the two HPV vaccines were illegally brought into the states of Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat and subsequently administered to thousands of young, vulnerable Indian children before the vaccines were known to be safe.
The three Petitioners told the court that even though the Indian government and the above organizations knew the HPV vaccines were of dubious value and of speculative benefits, they continued to allow a trial using both the Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines without regard to the potential endangerment of the lives of adolescent girls.
The petition outlined how the above organizations vaccinated tens of thousands of vulnerable girls aged between 10-14 years and then abandoned them without providing any information on potential adverse reactions, scheduling follow-up examinations, or 0ffering post-vaccine treatment.
THE UNETHICAL EXPERIMENT
The vaccines were introduced to the public sector by carrying out a trial vaccinating 16,000 adolescent girls (10-14 years) in Andhra Pradesh and an equal number in Gujarat. The petitioners believed that by vaccinating children with HPV vaccines while being fully aware of the potential dangers, the organizations involved knowingly put the lives of tens of thousands of children at risk from potentially serious vaccine-related adverse reactions and death.
The Petitioners stated that the unlicensed HPV vaccines only became licensed midway through the project:
“These vaccines had not been assessed with respect to safety and efficacy for the Indian population where adolescent girls are overwhelmingly anemic and malnourished. No steps were taken to ensure the health and safety of the girls. They were not screened adequately for contraindications. On the contrary, they were told that the vaccine had no adverse effects, not even those that were acknowledged by the manufacturers. Referral and treatment of serious adverse effects was not planned and as a result, private doctors and government hospitals were not aware that the girls coming to them in serious condition were subjects of vaccine trials. No monitoring of the program was done. No course correction was made. After vaccination, the girls were dumped with no follow up.”
To further support their claims, the Petitioners shared a statement, which had been published on the WHO website:
“The short (2-3 years) post marketing surveillance periods of these vaccines do not permit final assessments of possible rare or long-term adverse effects.” 
All girls were vaccinated by the U.S.-based NGO (Non Government Organization) and PATH (Program for Appropriate Technology in Health).
DEATH AND DECEPTION
As stated in the petition, the project was discontinued only after several women’s organizations reported:
- deaths among the participants
- the use of vulnerable population
- lack of informed consent
“Some of the girls died. Some suffered serious adverse effects. Some of the girls developed autoimmune diseases that would require lifelong care. The manufacturers themselves acknowledged adverse events such as anaphylactic shock, seizures and paralysis, motor neuron disease, blood clots, eye, ear and vascular problems and even death, and problems affecting the nervous system, the immune system, the musculoskeletal system, the blood and lymphatic system, the respiratory system, the gastrointestinal system and the vascular system. In the PATH project, these adverse events were grossly under reported and hidden. Records were falsified. Deaths that took place were stated as having nothing to do with the administering of the vaccines and were described as deaths due to suicides, insecticide poisoning and snake bites.”
In an interview, Kalpana Mehta told me there had been gross anomalies in the death-related documentation, indicating a cover-up and that even the age of the girl who died failed to match the projects records. She said:
“The dates of postmortems were poorly documented and inaccurate and instead of being written on hospital stationary many had been written on plain paper without signatures.”
CONFLICTS OF INTEREST
The citizens of India have every right to be concerned. It appears that their government officials have fallen prey to collusion of international agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, PATH and WHO. They have allowed tens of thousands of young, vulnerable, rural Indian children to be involved in the HPV vaccine experiment, with no benefit.
Ms. Mehta says:
“Even a government appointed inquiry committee found gross irregularity with the consent process. Indian law provides for compensation for violation of the informed consent procedure in addition to the compensation for death and injury suffered by trial subjects. However even after two years the government has failed to act on its own inquiry.
This inquiry committee also noted that by taking vaccines free of cost from the manufacturers, the project was mired in conflict of interest. It also took strong exception to PATH ensuring itself for the project but leaving the girls uninsured.”
By this time, a massive 24,000 girls had already been vaccinated and, according to the petitioners, many of these young women had been coerced into accepting the vaccine. Parents were reassured, without scientific basis, that the vaccines would not impact their children’s future fertility.
Concerned about this information, the Petitioners stated:
“As of now there is alarming news of menopause setting in a 16 year-old girl from Australia, where the doctor has found Gardasil to be the only probable cause of this rarest of rare mishap.” 
Since the petition was submitted, yet more information on the similar plight of girls in Australia has come to light. The Sunday Telegraph has published a story, first reported in the British Medical Journal, of a previously healthy 16 year-old girl whose premature menopause may be linked to the Gardasil vaccination. 
According to The Telegraph, Dr. Ward told reporters that women’s fertility must be protected at all costs. Ms. Botha has been echoing Dr. Ward’s words for years. She has stressed on many occasions that vaccinating girls at menarche – the onset of menstruation, which is the most fragile reproductive time of a woman’s life – is dangerous:
“As the female hormone levels of estrogen and progesterone decrease during the premenstrual phase, the female body begins the process of releasing the uterine lining in the act of menstruation. The decrease in hormones actually affects a woman’s energy levels and her emotions. The immune system becomes more compromised, and that translates to a lowered defense system to fight off invading, foreign toxins.” 
There has been no evidence to suggest that any of the above crucial issues were ever considered by any of the organizations involved in these vaccination trials.
Time and again, according to the petition, PATH has denied that it carried out a trial in India. It insists that what it was doing was merely a post-licensure study. This explanation was unacceptable to the Indian government’s inquiry. It concluded that by whatever name PATH chooses to call its exercise, under the Indian Drugs and Cosmetics Act, it was indeed a clinical trial and all safeguards should have been observed. Yet PATH and WHO have hailed the trial a resounding success in order to carry on vaccinating other vulnerable communities in the third world with dangerous, potentially life-threatening vaccines.
Undeterred by the government’s silence and WHO pronouncements, the Petitioners have strongly recommended that the court cancel the product licenses for Gardasil and Cervarix and withdraw both vaccinations from the market until their safety and efficacy is proven, as per Indian regulation. Their stance on licensing resonates with democracy as the Indian Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health and Family Welfare has indeed determined that the drug regulations currently favor pharmaceutical companies unduly, leaving consumers at the mercy of untried, irrational formulations.
The author offers her sincerest gratitude to Kalpana Mehta, Nalini Bhanot and V. Rukmini Rao for their tireless efforts to restore justice and health to vulnerable populations everywhere, especially in India at this time, and for their willingness to share their petition to the court with VacTruth.

Gardasil boys come marching in – 4 new Gardasil deaths reported to VAERS
On December 16, 2011, Janny Stokvis, SANE Vax Inc. VAERS analyst reported four new HPV vaccine deaths (3 Gardasil and one unknown manufacturer) have been posted to VAERS. View the chart located at http://sanevax.org/november-14-2011... for reports up to November 14, which shows the increase in reported deaths and injuries since August 2011.
Where is the Justice?
In the past three months almost 1,000 adverse reactions have been reported - and still only reflect 1 to 10% reporting. According to Stokvis the four new VAERS death reports include: 437971 (http://www.medalerts.org/vaersdb/fi... ) a hearsay foreign report of unknown age and gender; 437999 (http://www.medalerts.org/vaersdb/fi...) a male age 18 from Ohio who committed suicide by hanging himself 5 days after his second shot; 441365 (http://www.medalerts.org/vaersdb/fi... ) female age 14 - foreign report - with acute leukemia; and 442402 (http://www.medalerts.org/vaersdb/fi... )male age 15 from Oregon.
Yet the Merck vaccine machine continues to move forward bulldozing every obstacle in their way by changing laws, and paying off health agencies. Headlines in the Sydney Morning Herald on Friday - shouted - Give boys cancer jab as well, say experts, citing that 'ALL teenage boys would be vaccinated against the sexually transmitted disease that causes some forms of cancer under an extension of a scheme now available to girls, the federal government's expert panel, (the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee) has recommended. 1.
Statewide Mandatory HPV Vaccination Bills Continue
FLORIDA: Headlines in The Florida Independent on December 7, state Florida GOP lawmaker's bill would recommend HPV vaccine for young girls. "Senate Bill 1116 (http://www.myfloridahouse.gov/Secti... ) would require the state's health department to 'adopt a rule adding the human papillomavirus to the list of communicable diseases for which immunizations are recommended.
"Altman's bill says:
Beginning with the 2012-2013 school year, each school shall provide the parent or guardian of a public school student entering grade 6 for whom the human papillomavirus vaccine is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration information, which the Department of Health shall prescribe, regarding the connection between the human papillomavirus and cervical cancer. The information must also notify the parent or guardian that a vaccine is available to help prevent human papillomavirus infection and that the vaccine is recommended to be given to females before they enter grade 8." 2.
SOUTH CAROLINA: The Times and Democrat posted a story on December 16, Lawmakers want emails saved, girls vaccinated. 'State Rep. Bakari Sellers, D-Denmark, has sponsored a bill to offer parents of female seventh-graders the option of getting vaccinations to prevent cervical cancer. Implementation is contingent on the availability of state and federal funding.
'Sellers said the health community has been supportive of the legislation.
"This is a good thing and it is already working in other, more conservative parts of the country like Virginia," Sellers said. "We have many health issues in South Carolina and cervical cancer is a killer here. 3.
Where is the Sanity?
Apparently, not at the CDC. On December 16 an announcement was posted in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly, aptly titled Public Health Prevention Service Accepting Applications for 2012 Class and Field Assignments. Hello, is anybody home? 'Health prevention'? But then again maybe the CDC has finally become aware they are preventing health and wellbeing through their associations with Big Pharma and the drugs being pushed on innocent medical consumers.
Through its 2-year field assignments, PHPS is available to support and supplement state or local health organizations in filling crucial program management needs...and health communication. 4.
Imagine CDC 'professionals' with master's degrees implementing health prevention programs in your community. Bet these qualified 'Health Preventionists' will come armed with needles and serums. Hopefully their health communication skills are better than the parent agency.
Time Magazine's Person of the Year Award goes to:
Time Magazine has honored protestors abroad and in the U.S. for what has become 'the greatest social-justice movement to emerge in the United States since the civil rights era.'
According to Time: 'All over the world, the protesters of 2011 share a belief that their countries' political systems and economies have grown dysfunctional and corrupt -- sham democracies rigged to favor the rich and powerful and prevent significant change.'5.
Those of us protesting dangerous vaccines and vaccination practices are part of a larger global movement taking down the veil of hypocrisy and elitism meant to separate people from their governments. We are no longer the 'anti-vaccine cultists' - but part of the global mainstream demanding truth, transparency and justice.
God grant medical consumers the wisdom to know a health preventionist when they see one, and the courage to kick them off their property.

SaneVax Introduces One More Gardasil Girl: Kylie from Arkansas
21,474 adverse events and 93 deaths reported so far after HPV vaccinations. Vaccine injuries do happen. The time has come to find out why. The time has come to give victims of adverse reactions after vaccination a voice.
Before Gardasil, Kylie had been a cheerleader for eight years. She participated in tumbling, was in the marching band for three years, and sang in her school choir for five years. She went swimming almost every day in the summer. She played piano. In short, Kylie was involved in a little bit of everything. Now, she can barely hold down a part-time job. At a mere 19 years of age, after three years of suffering, Kylie has been approved for disability payments. She looks forward to the day she no longer needs them. Kylie just wants her life to get back to normal.
The following is Kylie’s story in her own words:
My name is Kylie and I am 19 years old. I had my first Gardasil shot at age 16 on 4/5/07 (LOT# 0171U) and have been very sick ever since. To start, this is the most painful shot I've ever experienced. I immediately felt nauseous and nearly blacked out while walking to the bathroom to vomit.
Following the first shot I experienced frequent abdominal/pelvic pain, nausea, and fatigue.
My second Gardasil shot was on 5/25/07, followed by my first emergency room visit for extreme abdominal/pelvic pain on 8/12/07.
On 10/12/07 I was given the final Gardasil shot. I saw a doctor on 11/7/07 for abdominal/pelvic pain and nausea/being unable to eat. The doctor prescribed me with Prevacid which had no effect on the pain that I was experiencing.
The pelvic/abdominal pain and nausea would come and go. It became an everyday pain beginning in 7/08 and has only progressed since then. At this time I weighed 115lbs. I saw several different doctors at the clinic that I used and none could diagnose my condition.
Many of the doctors suggested that it was "all in my head." I've had numerous trips to the emergency room for this stabbing pain in my pelvis area.
My condition gets worse as the days go by. Since 4/5/07, I have lost a total of 25 pounds. I have constant nausea. I still experience the constant pelvic/abdominal pain DAILY. The pain has traveled to my lower back and also up my spine. I have headaches/migraines multiple times a day. All of my muscles and joints ache, mainly in my hips and shoulders. My back feels like it always needs to pop but hasn't for the past year or so. I have a strange pain in my neck and behind my left ear from a swollen lymph node that never goes away and affects my hearing. I am extremely tired all of the time and spend most of my days resting.
I have frequent chest pain and difficulty breathing. My vision keeps getting worse and worse, and I am VERY sensitive to light. If I stand up too fast then I automatically see stars and feel faint. Some days my allergies (that I have no history of) act up so badly that I can't do anything. The lymph nodes throughout my body are all swollen from time to time.
Certain foods that I used to love make me very sick. I can't tolerate anything with dairy, msg, or soy, and for some reason I can't even handle lettuce.
Most of the testing done has all came back saying that there is no reason for the strange things that I experience… the pain that I NEVER had until Gardasil. I have had tons of blood work done, a dozen ultrasounds on my pelvic region, abdomen, spleen, gallbladder, appendix, heart, etc. My chest x-rays will show enlarged lymph nodes one day, and nothing the next. Most of my EKG testing is normal on one day, but on one occasion the result was that I had pericarditis (swelling of the sac around the heart), also confirmed by a chest x-ray and listening to the rub. A cardiologist did an ultrasound on my heart following the pericarditis and all of the sudden there was no sign of it being there… but the ultrasound THEN showed that I had a pleural effusion(fluid around my lung), which wasn't there the previous week.
It's strange how one day I am diagnosed with something abnormal and then all of the sudden it disappears. On one ultrasound I had multiple cysts on my ovaries. Within a short period of time, they had disappeared yet I was still experiencing the exact same pain as before. One of my back tests showed a concern for degenerating disc disease, while the next test was normal. At one point I went to an emergency after-hours clinic and was diagnosed with appendicitis and rushed to the emergency room. After arriving and having an ultrasound, my appendix appeared normal..?
I've done CAT scans, had an MRI, barium swallows, a laparoscopy, colonoscopy, and an endoscopy, all to show that "nothing is wrong." I've traveled out of town to see an infectious disease doctor who took NINE vials of blood, all results coming back normal. My doctors think that I have developed anxiety and that I am stressed. Who wouldn't be stressed out after this? I spend my days either sleeping, at the doctor’s office, or in the emergency room.
I was last hospitalized on 4/4/09 (Easter) for four days due to untreatable nausea causing constant vomiting (although I hadn't eaten all day), the WORST migraine ever, a 103 fever, and extreme pelvic/abdominal pain. The doctor basically told me that there was nothing wrong and that I was making it up because my tests were fine. Now just how do you make up a 103 fever and vomiting for four days straight, I don't know!
Recently I have been seeing new doctors at UAMS in Little Rock (the 3 hour drive stinks!). I've now had a capsule endoscopy and an endoscopy with biopsies of my stomach and small bowel. The test results showed that I have erosion in my intestines and that my stomach is swollen. I finally got another diagnosis just a couple weeks ago that I have severe fibromyalgia (widespread pain). I am EXTREMELY chemically sensitive, meaning that I can barely take any new medicines without it basically killing me. I also see a chiropractor daily to do electrical stimulation for nerve pain.
But in summary, I have lost 25 lbs, have severe food/chemical allergies, erosion in my intestines, swollen stomach, constant migraines, constant abdominal/pelvic pain, polycystic ovaries, back/joint pain, swollen lymph nodes, my hair falls out really bad, I've had pericarditis (swelling of sac around heart) and a pleural effusion (fluid around lungs), I experience muscle aches/twitches, sensitivity to light/smells, inability to stay focused, memory loss, fevers, metal taste in my mouth, EXTREME fatigue, dizziness, weakness, shortness of breath, painful periods that last for four months straight, nausea, and am unable to tolerate being too hot/cold.. I'm sure there's more but I just can't think right now.
Let me remind you that I had never been this sick a day in my life besides maybe the sniffles or a cold every few years, until I had these shots!
Do some research before you decide to get the shots, I sure wish that I had! Thousands of dollars in medical bills later.. I'm still just sitting around sick, unable to go back to college, unable to work full time, unable to go a day without excruciating pain! I spend more time at the doctor and counting pills than I do anything else! Who wants to hang out with you when you're sick, anyway?
Stories like this are the reason the SaneVax Team is helping get the production of the “One More Girl” documentary off the ground. These girls need to have their stories told. There is not one person who suffered an adverse reaction after HPV vaccination that does not feel compelled to warn others. Without exception, they want no other person to ever have to experience the same things they have.
Please, take a few minutes to watch the preview of “One More Girl.” Make your contribution to the production of this ground-breaking film. Help prevent others from becoming one more injured after HPV vaccination.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved the vaccine Gardasil for the prevention of anal cancer and associated precancerous lesions due to human papillomavirus (HPV) types 6, 11, 16, and 18 in people ages 9 through 26 years.
Gardasil is already approved for the same age population for the prevention of cervical, vulvar, and vaginal cancer and the associated precancerous lesions caused by HPV types 6, 11, 16, and 18 in females. It is also approved for the prevention of genital warts caused by types 6 and 11 in both males and females.
“Treatment for anal cancer is challenging; the use of Gardasil as a method of prevention is important as it may result in fewer diagnoses and the subsequent surgery, radiation or chemotherapy that individuals need to endure,” said Karen Midthun, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research.
Although anal cancer is uncommon in the general population, the incidence is increasing. HPV is associated with approximately 90 percent of anal cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 5,300 people are diagnosed with anal cancer each year in the United States, with more women diagnosed than men.
Gardasil’s ability to prevent anal cancer and the associated precancerous lesions [anal intraepithelial neoplasia (AIN) grades 1, 2, and 3] caused by anal HPV-16/18 infection was studied in a randomized, controlled trial of men who self-identified as having sex with men (MSM). This population was studied because it has the highest incidence of anal cancer. At the end of the study period, Gardasil was shown to be 78 percent effective in the prevention of HPV 16- and 18-related AIN. Because anal cancer is the same disease in both males and females, the effectiveness data was used to support the indication in females as well.
Gardasil will not prevent the development of anal precancerous lesions associated with HPV infections already present at the time of vaccination. For all of the indications for use approved by the FDA, Gardasil's full potential for benefit is obtained by those who are vaccinated prior to becoming infected with the HPV strains contained in the vaccine.
Individuals recommended for anal cancer screening by their health care provider should not discontinue screening after receiving Gardasil.
As of May 31, 2010, more than 65 million doses of Gardasil had been distributed worldwide, since its approval in 2006 according to the manufacturer, Merck and Co. Inc, of Whitehouse Station, N.J. The most commonly reported adverse events include fainting, pain at the injection site, headache, nausea, and fever. Fainting is common after injections and vaccinations, especially in adolescents. Falls after fainting may sometimes cause serious injuries, such as head injuries. This can be prevented by keeping the vaccinated person seated for up to 15 minutes after vaccination. This observation period is also recommended to watch for severe allergic reactions, which can occur after any immunization.

Cervical cancer jab for girls aged 12 can be given without parental consent
Family rights campaigners have called for a change in the law after it was revealed that girls as young as 12 can be given the cervical cancer vaccine without their parents’ consent.
Doctors and nurses have been told they are under no legal obligation to seek the permission of the parent or guardian.
The jab is being offered to girls between 12 and 18 as part of a nationwide programme designed to protect them against the sexually transmitted HPV virus, which causes 70 per cent of cervical tumours.
Opponents have argued that giving girls the jab and protecting them against a sexually transmitted infection before they are even teenagers is giving them the go-ahead to experiment sexually.
Norman Wells, director of Family and Youth Concern, said: ‘Giving the vaccination to girls without the consent of their parents is unethical and a recipe for disaster.
'It is sending out the message that girls under 16 have a right to a private sex life and is treating parents with contempt.’
The Department of Health confirmed that parental consent was desirable but not essential.

Parent Files Lawsuit Against Gardasil Vaccine Manufacturer For Brain Damaged Daughter
Mother Warns Parents Against Vaccine Dangers
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A local mother is suing the makers of Gardasil claiming her daughter suffered from seizures and got brain damage after getting the vaccination.
Gardasil is the vaccine given to women ages 9 to 26 to vaccinate them against HPV, a virus that can cause cervical cancer.
Tracy Wolf showed Action 7 News all her daughters' doctor records after getting the Gardasil vaccine.
Wolf's daughter Alexis has been sick for the past three years with uncontrollable vomiting and seizures which left her brain damaged.
Wolf said her daughter got a series of Gardasil vaccine injections in 2007 and 2008. Shortly after, Alexis reportedly went from being a happy, honor-roll student to a completely different person.
Doctors told Wolf Alexis' condition was behavioral, not medical.
"They had put her on psych meds, thinking she was bi-polar or something like that," said Wolf.
Wolf is convinced that the injections are to blame.
"Our main goal is to get this off the market," said Wolf. "Get this off the market and get them to stop."
According to Wolf, her daughter needs constant care. She said the refrigerator is locked because Alexis has urges to eat constantly.
Wolf said her daughter is narcoleptic during the middle of the day and cannot sleep at night and is in constant pain.
Alexis said she wants to go back to school but cannot.
An Attorney in Kansas City filed a petition in the United States Court of Federal Claims, seeking damages for the Wolf family.
The vaccine is made by Merck and Company. Action 7 News called the company numerous times and our calls were not returned.
The vaccine is FDA approved and has been available in the US since 2006.

Cancer Vaccine Programme Suspended After Four Girls Die
New Delhi: The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has told Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat to immediately suspend the cervical cancer control vaccination programme for girls. The programme is part of a two-year study to look into the utility of a vaccine in public health programmes and acceptability of Gardasil, the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine made by Merck. Gardasil, available in medical stores across the country, is marketed in India by MSD Pharmaceuticals Pvt Ltd.
The programme was marred by controversy after four deaths and complications among 120 girls were reported after vaccination. The girls complained of stomach disorders, epilepsy, headaches and early menarche. Women activists fear the vaccine may impact the mental health of girls who have shown no signs of distress so far.
Health ministry sources said the vaccination programme is being conducted by Gardasil, jointly with PATH, a Seattle-based NGO, ICMR and the two state governments. About 32,000 girls, aged 10-14, were to be tested in the study.
ICMR chief Dr VM Katoch clarified ICMR was only a technical partner, with an advisory role, in the project. But Katoch said they were checking out who was at fault.
Questioning the study, CPM leader Brinda Karat said: “How has the government embarked on the study of giving three injections to the girls when it is also planning a massive multi-centric dose determination study to see if two doses will suffice?”
For a drug to be administered to children, Karat said, it has to go through stages of clinical trial, including phase 3 adult clinical trials. With Gardasil, only one trial has been carried out with a small sample of 110 girls, which has followed up with them for a month after completion of vaccination and that too only to look at the immune response post-vaccination, Karat said. The vaccine has also been approved for adult women aged 27, Karat said, without any trials on them.
Karat also alleged scientific logic and ethical guidelines have been violated at each step during drug and vaccine trials.

Time for the truth about Gardasil
By: Barbara Hollingsworth
Local Opinion Editor-Washington Examiner
March 30, 2010
Cervical cancer accounts for less than 1 percent of all cancer deaths, so it was somewhat surprising when the U.S. Food and Drug Administration fast-tracked approval of Gardasil, a Merck vaccine targeting the human papilloma virus that causes the disease, in 2006.
As of Jan. 31, 2010, 49 unexplained deaths following Gardasil injections have been reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (http://vaers.hhs.gov/index). By contrast, 52 deaths are attributed to unintended acceleration in Toyotas, which triggered a $2 billion recall.
No recall for Gardasil, which is required for sixth-grade girls in D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and many other states. Parents can opt out, but few know the true risks.

Gardasil Researcher Speaks Out
Amid questions about the safety of the HPV vaccine Gardasil one of the lead researchers for the Merck drug is speaking out about its risks, benefits and aggressive marketing.
Dr. Diane Harper says young girls and their parents should receive more complete warnings before receiving the vaccine to prevent cervical cancer. Dr. Harper helped design and carry out the Phase II and Phase III safety and effectiveness studies to get Gardasil approved, and authored many of the published, scholarly papers about it. She has been a paid speaker and consultant to Merck. It’s highly unusual for a researcher to publicly criticize a medicine or vaccine she helped get approved.
Dr. Harper joins a number of consumer watchdogs, vaccine safety advocates, and parents who question the vaccine’s risk-versus-benefit profile. She says data available for Gardasil shows that it lasts five years; there is no data showing that it remains effective beyond five years.

Attkisson's Exclusive Report on Gardasil
This raises questions about the CDC’s recommendation that the series of shots be given to girls as young as 11-years old. “If we vaccinate 11 year olds and the protection doesn’t last... we’ve put them at harm from side effects, small but real, for no benefit,” says Dr. Harper. “The benefit to public health is nothing, there is no reduction in cervical cancers, they are just postponed, unless the protection lasts for at least 15 years, and over 70% of all sexually active females of all ages are vaccinated.” She also says that enough serious side effects have been reported after Gardasil use that the vaccine could prove riskier than the cervical cancer it purports to prevent. Cervical cancer is usually entirely curable when detected early through normal Pap screenings.

Journal reports teenager nearly blinded following vaccination against HPV virus
Kathlyn Stone Print version
A 16-year-old girl developed near complete visual loss after being immunized against human papilloma virus (HPV), according to a case report published in the March issue of the Journal of Child Neurology.
Report authors Mirna Hajjar, MD, a neurologist, Thomas Ciesielski, MD, a pathologist, both of Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Conn., and pediatrician Francis DiMario, Jr., MD, with Connecticut Children's Medical Center, described the injury as chiasmal neuritis (inflammed nerves) with a tumefactive (swollen) demyelinating lesion that were observed through brain biopsy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

The vision loss occurred about 10 days after the girl had received the second of three courses of the Gardasil vaccine.
The previously healthy girl had gone to the emergency room after experiencing progressive acute vision loss and a gradually worsening headache over a 48-hour period. She had no other symptoms and no family history of demyelinating disease, collagen-vascular disease, or rheumatological disorders. The authors wrote: “It is tempting to speculate whether there may be a specific immune mechanism initiated with human papilloma virus not yet identified, which resulted in not only acute demyelinating encephalomyelitis but also in an unusual clinical course that resulted in persistent visual loss.”
Eighteen months after her initial symptoms the girl continued to experience “persistent profound visual impairment” but had no additional neurological problems, according to the authors.
The authors noted that only four other cases showing an association between central nervous system demyelination and the HPV vaccine have been published and that larger epidemiologic studies are needed to confirm HPV virus immunization plays a role in demyelinating disease.
