Tetanus Shot: How Do We Know That It Works?

By Tetyana Obukhanych, PhD,

The cure for tetanus, a life-threatening and often deadly disease, has been sought from the very inception of the modern field of Immunology. The original horse anti-serum treatment of tetanus was developed in the late 19th century and introduced into clinical practice at the time when a bio-statistical concept of a randomized placebo-controlled trial (RCT) did not yet exist. The therapy was infamous for generating a serious adverse reaction called serum sickness attributed to the intolerance of humans to horse-derived serum. To make this tetanus therapy usable, it was imperative to substitute the animal origin of anti-serum with the human origin. But injecting a lethal toxin into human volunteers as substitutes for horses would have been unthinkable.

An Interview With Research Immunologist Tetyana Obukhanych, PhD, Part 3 of 3. By Catherine Frompovich.

Vaccine Illusion is Tetyana’s effort to reach parents outside the San Francisco Bay Area with a similar message she teaches in her classes on making vaccination decisions. She is also dedicated to spreading the awareness of sorely needed changes in the way modern biomedical research is done. Her e-Book, Vaccine Illusion, is available from Amazon.com as a Kindle edition and a few free excerpts are available at her book website (https://sites.google.com/site/vaccineillusion).

An Interview With Research Immunologist Tetyana Obukhanych, PhD, Part 2 of 3. By Catherine Frompovich.

Dr. Obukhanych’s passion is educating herself and others about immunity. One of Tetyana’s ways of doing that is teaching small one-on-one-type classes in Menlo Park, California to help parents make their own informed vaccination decisions (http://naturalimmunity.blogspot.com). Her classes cover the ‘waterfront’ on vaccine issues and include: if, and when do, vaccines prevent and not prevent disease—something probably disputed by many; dangers in vaccines, especially the effects of aluminum, a neurotoxin and adjuvant in many vaccines that might be sensitizing children to be allergy-prone; the principles and the flaw of the vaccine design; the lack of scientific knowledge of natural immunity (a very important topic for this interviewer) along with nutritional factors that lower susceptibility to disease—just to mention a few.

Dr Tetyana Obukhanych, author of the book “Vaccine Illusion” has studied immunology in some of the world’s most prestigious medical institutions. She earned her PhD in Immunology at the Rockefeller University in New York and did postdoctoral training at Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. and Stanford University in California.

Catherine Frompovich conducted an in-depth interview with Dr Obukhanych which is now transcribed. We will be publishing it in three parts.

Dr. Tenpenny on Travel Vaccines.

Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, DO,
International Medical Council on Vaccination,
24 February 2012.

Vaccines are NOT required for most countries of the world – yellow fever is the sole exception, and the rules on that one can be found on the CDC website under “travel vaccines.” Vaccines are recommended only. I’ve had the good fortune to have traveled to nearly 60 countries in my life; I’ve never been asked for a vaccine record and if a particular place required ANY vaccines, I would refuse to go there. Period.

Basics of the Human Immune System Prior to Introduction of Vaccines: Are Vaccines Turning Our Children’s Immune Systems Inside Out? Part 2.

Harold E Buttram, MD and Catherine J Frompovich,

There is a universal principle referred to as “atrophy of disuse” which, as far as can be determined, applies to all physiologic processes of the human body. Although a normal full-term infant comes into the world with virtually all of the brain cells (neurons) that it will ever have, the brain continues to grow from increasing numbers of glial (connective tissue) cells and dendrite branching extensions that continue throughout life with mental activity. As an example, the story is told of two sisters who were identical twins and entered a nunnery, one gravitating into administrative work, the other into menial labor. With the passage of years the former remained mentally alert and bright, while the latter lapsed into Alzheimer’s disease from brain atrophy.

In what may be the most comprehensive review to date on the pathophysiology of adverse vaccine reactions, neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock has compiled a mass of evidence that repeated stimulation of the brain’s immune system results in intense reactions of microglial and astrocyte cells, which serve as the brain’s immune system, with each successive series of vaccinations. This is primarily the result of vaccine adjuvants that are expressly added for this purpose. [1-3]

Adjuvants, Preservatives and Tissue Fixatives In Vaccines (Part 1 & 2).

Dr. Viera Scheibner, PhD,

Dec 2000 & Feb 2001.

Adjuvants, Preservatives and Tissue Fixatives in Vaccines

Vaccines contain a number of substances which can be divided into the following groups:

  1. Micro-organisms, either bacteria or viruses, thought to be causing certain infectiousdiseases and which the vaccine is supposed to prevent. These are whole-cell proteins orjust the broken-cell protein envelopes, and are called antigens.
  2. Chemical substances which are supposed to enhance the immune response to thevaccine, called adjuvants.
  3. Chemical substances which act as preservatives and tissue fixatives, which are supposed to halt any further chemical reactions and putrefaction (decomposition or multiplication) of the live or attenuated (or killed) biological constituents of the vaccine.

All these constituents of vaccines are toxic, and their toxicity may vary, as a rule, from one batch of vaccine to another.

In this article, the first of a two-part series, we shall deal with adjuvants, their expected role and the reactions (side effects).
