Israel's Shocking Vaccine Admission
"Israel having a very sophisticated healthcare system having an incredible research team at their disposal has had one of the worst responses and handlings of this pandemic. Now Israel is far from a third world country. They are a first world country. And in fact, if you look up GDP per CAPiTA, Israel is about 35, but if you removed parts of the West Bank and you really only counted the non disputed parts of Israel, I guarantee Israel would move up in the top ten of GDP per CAPiTA. It's one of the wealthiest countries on the planet. Makes you wonder, it should make you wonder, makes me wonder, how is it that a wealthy country with such incredibly talented scientists, they're not dumb? They're not a dumb society at all. How did they get into a situation? Where you look at the handling of the virus, it is an objective failure. Professor Ehud qimron, head of a department of microbiology and immunology at Tel Aviv university, and one of Israel's leading immunologists. Last week denounced what he called the Israeli government's mismanagement of the pandemic. He said quote, two years late, you finally realize that a respiratory virus can not be defeated and that any such attempt is doomed to fail. You do not admit it, because you have admitted almost no mistake in the last two years. But in retrospect, it is clear that you have failed miserably in almost all of your actions, and even the media is already having a hard time covering your shame. This letter is extraordinary. You guys should check it out. He continues by saying that the reported side effects of the useless lockdowns have quote destroyed Israeli and Jewish children and their future.
Dr. Zelenko on the Ebola-Like Virus Raging Through China
"Doctor zelenko, there are whispers from doctor Malone and other people that I trust that there is a potential Ebola like virus raging through China that might be something completely different. What have you heard about this? And do you think it just might be hysteria gone wild or do you think that there might be another mutant or a mutation? I should say that might have been caused by the mass inoculation strategy that we underwent. So you're referring to a virus that's causing hemorrhagic fever and bleeding. That's not a coronavirus. It's more similar to the Ebola virus. I became aware of my 6 months ago, living research and dissipating potential other threats into smallpox. Marburg virus was developing the Russians and used as a bio weapon. So I looked into it cell biology. It turns out it's a single strand RNA virus, which is in the same kind of pathway as influenza virus and COVID, even though it's much, much more lethal. So I could think around 30% lethality. And so in anticipation of a potential thread from such a virus, I spoke to a query ten of the leading immunologists and researchers that I know. And most of them had no idea. I just spoke to doctor Malone and he didn't know either and he was looking into who's the expert in the government on my burglars. However, I've had a colleague from Germany, doctor Roland Darwin, and I asked him to hear, look, we have an RNA polymerase to replicate. Do you think the zinc ionophore zinc approach would work? And he said, yes.
Dr. Zelenko on the Latest Developments With Omicron
"Doctor zelenko is here back by popular demand in the Charlie Kirk show doctor. How are you doing? I'm doing great. How are you? Very good. Thank you, and thank you for joining us. There's so much I want to get into. Let's just start with since the last time we talked, amaran has come onto the scene. What are you seeing in your patients? What do you believe on Macron is? And do you think there's anything to the argument that this might have been developed in a lab as a form of a vaccine through natural transmission? Do you think there's any truth to that? So first of all, all Macron is unstoppable. It's more infectious than measles. Everyone will get it. And it's also not dangerous. It attacks the upper airway. In most cases, it doesn't touch a lower airway. And so you'll get a cold. So it really is in dangerous. Regarding the origin of variants, you have to look at it and three possibilities. One is that it's a natural process. Let's say God is causing it because viruses have a natural mutation rate. It helps them adapt and survive. Look man figure who won the Nobel Prize. Finally HIV in 2008, doctor suffered badly who is the most published imminent immunologist in the history of the field. And that the men involved one of the top immunologists from Netherlands. They all said the following that if you vaccinate people during active pandemic, you breathe
A US Based Virologist Warns Parents Against Vaccinating Kids
"There is a piece in epoch times. About Robert Malone, virologist, immunologists, who contributed significantly to the technology that allowed us to develop these kinds of vaccines. Here's what the headline is. Think twice before you vaccinate your kids. Doctor Robert Malone Warren's parents, on COVID-19 shots, as you know, during the campaign when I ran for governor, I was asked by Joe Johns of CNN about Maxine vaccine for children. And I said, one more time, children are not likely to get sick. Not likely to get seriously sick, not likely to be hospitalized and certainly not likely to die. And they showed that, and then Joe John's voice over said, but that's not true. According to the CDC, yada bloch et cetera well, this is doctor Robert Malone, who contributed a great deal to the technology that was used to develop these vaccines. Here is what he said and I'm quoting. Think twice before you vaccinate your kids. Because if something bad happens, you can't go back and say, whoops, I want to do a do over.
Dr. Harvey Risch: Drugs Politicized by Media Could've Saved 80-85% of COVID Patients
"Doctor Fauci's almost 81 years old That's enough already He should be out of office He's not irreplaceable Fact is easily replaceable He's made some lousy decisions I had on my Fox program last night as many of you know Doctor Harvey rich Whose world renown He's a immunologist from Yale And he said all these drugs That they politicize Hydroxychloroquine and on and on and on he listed any thought He said that could have saved 80 to 85% of the people who died if we had aggressively given it to people early on Is that not shocking And these drugs they're not toxic drugs they've been around for decades The inter mice and the inventor of that got a Nobel Prize for medicine And so seen in mocks it as you know that Joe Rogan's situation as a horse dress It's not a horse drag It's a human drug Sometimes they have multiple benefits for horses It's like gabapentin gabapentin is a human drug but sometimes you give it the dogs and other animals because it has a positive effect in terms of relaxing muscles and so forth So what That make it a dog drug Or the other one a horse drug No you only do those things If you're fraudulent phony reporters pushing an agenda who basically burp up and spew whatever the government tells you to burp up and spew as long as the government's in the hands of a
Professor Files Lawsuit Over University Vaccine Mandate
"Welcome back by friends. I'm dennis prager and a professor on todd. Zoecke z. y. W i c k by a professor of law george mason university and a fellow at the cato institute in august believe it was august. Let me see here. you wrote a piece in the The wall street journal was august professor. There why gogga's that's right down is so you wrote a about why you're not going to follow your universities. Demand that you get a vaccination for cans covert in order to be able to return to campus and you cited the fact that you had in fact cova and in fact was was when you took tests. You've had the antibodies to kovin. They stay continued to stay in your body and so you sued. george mason. Is that correct cats correct and it's okay. Yup no no you go ahead. Yeah so i so. I tried to resolve this the nice way. Then it's wages. I tried to torch mason claims to the place the respect science that Respects truth so. I reached out over the summer After i contacted by immunologists and i did a full immunity workup including an anti bodies tests. That showed that my anybody's level With comparable to somebody who had been fully vaccinated And And there's more there's more than you needed that but this is sort of a slam dunk case is this is how you measure of somebody's immune protection listens how they measure whether somebody needs a booster shot for any for any disease whether it's measles or covert or anything else And so. I reached out. And i said here's here's the evidence They blew me off. I reached out to again. And i'd attached an affidavit from my immunologist as well as to leading public Stoller sir. I'm sure you're familiar with jay body charge at stanford martin cool dorks harvard. The presenting all the evidence to show this george mason again. Just blew me off Issue their policy saying that everybody had to get back and and so i reached out to the new civil liberties alliance at that point and some ask them to represent me so we brought a lawsuit eventually george mason and they're giving the medical exemption after all this In civil and changed the rules so that wasn't being disadvantaged as much as i had so the lawsuit itself has been resolved. But now there's you know many cases now following raising the same issue as vaccine mandates of spread around the country.
What Happens to Viruses After the Immune System Eliminates Them
"On their own. Viruses are pretty much helpless and they are one hundred percent dependent on infecting cells. This is catalina lopez. She is an immunologist at washington university. School of medicine in saint louis. They cannot go anywhere. They basically can replicate outside ourselves. They they would just disappear. Viruses are dependent but they are sneaky. They get into cells and use their infrastructure to replicate to infect another cell and another one amplified themselves and multiplied themselves. Always using taking advantage like parasites. Are they alive. That's a really good question Well what defines something being alive. I don't know. I think they are really good. And taking advantage of life things to keep propagating but since they're completely dependent. I think i think there's aspects of the definition of live that may may not apply to viruses so they may not be fully alive but like zombies. They can also be really hard to fully kill to get rid of the virus. The immune system has to kill infected cells but cavallina says many viruses find ways to hide for a lot of viruses. We know not larger more complex viruses. We know that they have strategies to stay that. Allow them to hide they infect itself from this immune response for example so this infected cell is not seeing and then if you don't eliminate killer clear it then you will have that virus always hanging around in your body sticking around in any way possible and we're finding with more sophisticated tools. Just not looking for actually fully competent viruses but looking for elements of the virus. It's genetic material. Maybe it's proteins. If we go and look for those little pieces of the virus in the body what are starting to find that a lot of this virus actually are montaigne for a long time in the body

Why It Takes About 2 Weeks for a COVID Vaccine To Be Effective
"So one thing about vaccines that i at least feel like isn't being super. Well publicized the need to wait for two weeks after your last shot before you can consider yourself fully vaccinated. This goes for any of the vaccines you may be getting. So if it's a single shot. Like johnson and johnson you're fully vaccinated two weeks after that single shot. And if it's two shots like madeira or pfizer your fully vaccinated two weeks after your second shots. That is the official word from the cdc here in the us and is supported by infectious disease. Experts blunt uae. Exactly mark cameron and immunologist at case western reserve university who is instrumental in containing sars in two thousand three explains it's like vaccines are giving our immune system to do list which then needs time to complete. What's on the list. Quoting mashal one. Our immune system will gradually recognize the spike protein produced by the vaccine as an intruder to in response to recognizing this foreign spike protein. The body's immune cells will cooperate to start producing protective proteins called antibodies to protect you against the virus. If you're infected these antibodies bind to the spike proteins of the virus. Making it difficult or impossible for the virus to bind and gain access to ourselves and went inside the virus wheeler machinery to mass multiply. It's ineffective parasites. It's around the two week. Mark that the immune system is producing. Antibodies levels that block infections said cameron and quotes

"Unable to oversee the vaccines have been effective and safe and the animal models some from that the key groups and the biotech and pharma companies have applied to the buddies as i mentioned before. Full clinical trial -cations than. They always go to i. I then went on to face one-two-three full kind of face full right now is what people Authorisation is baseball. Which is what kinda going into your infusing. Millions of people. That's the one of the key. Missile wanted to bust which was about like there was no animal studies that have been the data is available. It's out there such a fuss thing. I think the second thing is unity. I think this is really important that people understand this won't because a lot of people have been saying these lockdowns have been sir detriment Lockdown no one likes lockdown. i've it's really impacted mental health. Let's be honest. The suicide rate has soared. There's a whole other conversation about the i try and stay away from politics Like i've rather you have. You don't have a politician his co. so i can only speak as a scientist. Because i don't know what the what the irony no is much as any anyone else about politically speaking. Whether this these decisions may have been the right once on but people have been saying on the whole back into to beckons lockdown back into tastes. Reebok into lockdown. Why don't we let the young people get on with it. Why don't we just shields the elderly shield vulnerable and then just let the other people that health get on with the end. I think the variants have proved a community called walk as the people need to understand that the brazil p. one variant has been quite concerning because the city where it was found in pronouncing manos nuthouse The majority of the population in that city had antibodies towards the ritual constrain. I they got reinfected and so severe nor the cases were hospitalized that was because of the barrier so then we also have the main variant of consent is the south african variant pfizer and astrazeneca off that effective in stopping the south african. Barron i think i mean is this reality. Means talk about five vaccine is fourteen times less effective against the south african Compelled to all uk variant at ashes. a full percent effective against the south african varia. Now gets lucky for us. It's But i think wanted to just really. The hope is hit time to people when they say well. Let's just we'll just get on no because if you continue rhyming the mall. The virus has to jump from host to host. The work can learn how to outwit defense mechanisms system. That's the second thing. I think the final metha- when it's talk about the pregnancy of lot of this has been a crazy to read by non boxer of this crazy light sort of paper not even pay purchase a blog post dot came out showing not how because the covid spike protein resembles a protein. That's innocuous santa in the female placenta by generating antibodies towards the cave spike protein. Your antibodies can make a mistake and then actually because it looks so similar to you'll placental proteins can go and kill your placenta effectively. Make you infer tile will make you miscarry that is a complete fabrication. because i've had so many people officemate. Should i get the vaccine. If i to get pregnant one day will i am. pregnant is a complete fabrication. These two partisan nothing alive. They have only about four amino acids in common. I've made jokes on my my ground.

I had the great opportunity to interview immunologist a research associate and a phd student. Doctor yasmin most seyni put a link to our instagram in the show notes. If you want to check her out. But i had the opportunity to talk to her about myths around cove. In fact around covid. Lots of information about the vaccines. So think you're going to really enjoy this one. It's gonna be really beneficial and informative as well at a time when the uk's moving out of lockdown restrictions reasonably quickly. I think there were concerns among some of us. Are we going to be able to stay safe. And i hope that this podcast will also so a lot of those questions and concerns or give you more confidence so sit back and enjoy as always share this.

Yes so basically been doing in light of the pandemic that we're living through. There's been a lot of misinformation that's been going around. And i think what's been highlighted is the lack of science communication a lot of people who are necessary experts in the field of trying to fend through the data and make sense of what's going on so i've decided to step in and to try and dispel some myths and put people at ease by speaking about the science in more layman's terms. So that so if you're trying to do amazing and you've been doing calling on about how many yes. Yes it's been keeping me busy for show and i did. Not she realize the reason why.

Oxford studying nasal spray coronavirus vaccine
"Oxford University's starting a Phase one trial to see if it can administer its AstraZeneca vaccine as a nasal spray. The university says the vaccine will be the same, but it will be delivered using an intra nasal spray device similar to many over the counter hay fever, nasal sprays. One of the trial's chief investigators, saying quote Some immunologists believe that delivering the vaccine to the site of the infection may achieve enhanced protection, especially against transmission and mild disease and quote such a vaccine would remove the need for needles and make it potentially easier to
A Third COVID Vaccine is Poised to Enter the U.S. Market
"From wondering. I'm david brown. And this is business. Wars daily on this tuesday february night twenty. Three million americans have already rolled up their sleeves to receive at least the initial dose of either the pfizer vaccine or the moderna vaccine designed to prevent covid nineteen. Well now a third vaccine is on track to enter the us market. Johnson and johnson's corona virus vaccine just wrapped up a long-awaited trial and hopes to clear. Fda authorization by the middle of this month. The lure of johnson and johnson's vaccine is that unlike modera advisor it can be delivered in one shot that make distribution simpler with no need to follow up with a second dose. It's also relatively inexpensive compared to the others and while moderna advisors vaccines have to be stored at just the right temperature. Well below freezing. Johnson and johnson's doesn't have those stringent requirements for storage. It can stay viable in just a refrigerator for around three months. That means the vaccine will play a big role globally because it's easier to distribute to low and middle income countries. According to the new york times but the results of johnson and johnson's trial were a bit disappointing. At least at first glance trial results indicated that it was seventy two percent effective at preventing moderate to severe symptoms of covid in the us. That number is sufficiently lower than modern and pfizer's overall efficiency rates of around ninety four percent and johnson and johnson's rate drops to sixty six percent in latin american countries and to fifty seven percent in south africa which is dealing with a variant strain of the virus. But don't let those lower numbers food you scientists and immunologists say that johnson and johnson's vaccine is still extremely effective and researchers have warned that you shouldn't compare the effectiveness of the three vaccines because they were all developed and tested at different periods of kovic evolution. Dr william shafter an infectious disease expert at vanderbilt told the new york times that pfizer and moderna had an advantage because those companies did their clinical trials before the variant strains emerged. He said quote. Johnson and johnson was testing. Its vaccine not only against the standard strain but they had the variants now in a perfect world. Consumers might get a choice of which of these vaccines they'd like to receive but that would only be possible if there were enough doses of all three and right now. That's just not the case in early january. The new york times reported that the us only had one hundred eighty five million doses of pfizer and moderna vaccines to cover americans through june and at the same time doses that were produced quickly now risk expiring before they can get into the arms of those who need them. Johnson and johnson says that if they're vaccine is approved they can produce around one hundred million doses of their

They're relying on a small sliver. You know, you know what I feel saying? If you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Well, if you're in if you're in immunologist, everything looks like a lockdown and found she's you know, an over the hill bureaucrat. Immunologist, several like he's the great in the knowledge that he's got you he's he's got the degree. I'll grant that. But there's no way he's on the cutting edge of science. You do have to go the Rockefeller Institute at Johns Hopkins, then Harvard, Stanford to find people who really understand what we're talking about. And So I wish I had a better prognosis. But what we know they can is this. This is hard data. There's a new strain. It's more contagious. Fatalities were going up. It's far worse than it was last spring. Vaccines are out there, but they're bungling the injections. Um, and it's not clear that the virus won't mutate around it. And lock downs don't work. That's a pretty dire scenario. But I tell people I'm not an optimist on my the pessimist. I'm a realist, and I'm an analyst that look at what's actually going on. That's what we're telling people in the book. You can't necessarily solve all the problems of the world. But if you could just shine a light on it and explain it to people, they take a lot of comfort from that, Mr Records. That's what I tried to do with this show, and I got to tell you something I used to work in television. A long time ago is reporter I started radio. Then I went to television came back toe talk radio. But at the time, I would talk to her engineers and say, Why are we buying that new gear and they say we're gonna let these other guys try it first and see how it works out over there be at the bigger markets where they got more money to spend on. Then we'll see how it works out and then we'll buy it. For the life of me. I can't understand why cities and counties, especially the state health divisions in the county health divisions aren't looking around the landscape, saying Maybe we're not doing it the right way, And I think it's ego. They all belong to these. A associations like Count Association of Counties Association of Cities, and They spent tons of money on junkets to fly to these meetings, and I think if they looked at and I'll give you the great example to beat New York, up with One of the poorest states in America. Notoriously west Virginia, do you know what they're effective delivery rate is right now about 70% on vaccine, you go. Well, How the heck did they do that today? Reinvent the wheel or something? No, they went to all the pharmacies. They got their national guard up and they said, Let's let's have the pharmacy start giving shots. And and all the sudden they're using 70% of what's being delivered. And who knows that may grow too. You know, even better. I mean, ideally, you'd have the stuff in people's arms so fast that you'd be waiting for the next statement. Next shipment instead of the other way around. Meanwhile, a lot of the blue states are down around the 25 or 30%, mark. Abysmal failure, and I can't believe that people in those bureaucracies don't say Is anybody doing it better by the numbers? So West Virginia's What are they doing? Okay, let's do it that way here. I mean, Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? Oh, yeah, That's right. By the way, West Virginia, you're right. They're doing a much better job of this should be in the vaccine. But even before the vaccine, they had one of the lowest fatality counts in the country. They were like 2nd 3rd from the bottom of the 50 states, which is what you want to be that the fewest fatalities. Absolutely. The book is called The new Great Depression, Winners and losers.

"R C W SNG and W. M. M. W Welcome back to the large large and show my guest and I'm so anxious. I've been so anxious to talk to him or looking forward to it. James Records who's the author of the new Great Depression, winners and losers and a post pandemic world. He has a history and in tax law, and also in working for some fairly large financial institutions, So he knows his stuff You left off by describing here is New York. The vaccine doses delivered and then as usual, and from my point of view, the government being completely inefficient, couldn't run a Popsicle stand. They can't seem to get the vaccine to the people who need it, and it's literally going to waste. Where do we pick up from there? Well prison that that's exactly right. And then, But beyond that you mentioned earlier that it was maybe not as contagious as we thought. Well, the contagion date has moved up and down because we had more testing and found out you know more about the population generally, although it is Contagious enough, but There's a new strain. It's here. It came out of it were first identified in the England and South Africa so called the English strain. If you want to. It's now in the United States. It's going worldwide. You can't stop it. That is much more contagious than what's called the Italian street. The Italian strain which came out of Milan. It all started charging me Don't don't get me wrong and I'll start it will haunt China. But it's spread East and west on it went west into Malang profession week and then came from Italy to New York on Ben spread around the rest of the country. So that's the Italian stream. But now we have this English string, which is more contagious. So we have data on that. That's clear and with more contagion come more fatalities that fatality eight. Isn't necessarily hunger. It's too soon to tell. But the number of fatalities is fire because the number of cases yes, treatments are better. We've we've learned that ventilators don't work. This Bentley was a good for certain things. But not for this that people were dying for the ventilators. But what you need is oxygen. Um Which is different. You don't need to pump you just pure oxygen into your lungs, and then you can still breathe. But But now the other thing this is a mutation and some mutations are harmless is part of the genome that doesn't affect this spread of the virus. But some mutations are extremely dangerous they make they make the contention rate higher on can make the fatality rate higher. But the bigger question is, does the new mutation eyes that still subject to the vaccine? Does the vaccine work against the new mutation? Too soon to tell. Hopefully the vaccines to work. That the virus is this A just wants to kill you. So the virus continuing mutation, something called mutation escape. And that's when it mutates in such a way that the buyer that the vaccine does not work or if you're if you recovered, the antibodies don't wear That's the most dangerous of all that has happened in test pandemics that happened in the Spanish flu in 1918. The second wave was far worse than the first wave. They didn't even have a vaccine then, but they were still You know, this is subject to these mutations that made the worst. So we've got that confronting us, and we're heading into another recession within the Depression. Because the lockdown policies so it's hard to see this getting better until may have the earliest best case late 2021 early 2022. Wow, but I'm talking to James Records. Ms. Records his author of these, the author, most recently the new Great Depression, winners and losers in a post pandemic world. I did intend to circle back to the economic side of this But is is anybody making the case? Do you think that you're making to the people making decisions like Governor Cuomo, Governor Newsome of California? They don't have to do it to run two Santas. He seems to understand it already. But to start to tell these states, I understand the state level decision. And and yet nobody seems to be effectively making the case. Hate. Start the economy back up, Get it going as much as you can protect the people who need to be protected. Get them the regular routine treatments. RAM Desert here whether it's the monoclonal antibodies, which I guess are going begging. Now the overproduced at this point, but get the economy going because, especially with a pandemic still going are still a problem. We got him. We got to generate the income in the wealth that actually pays for all of this stuff. There is a group making that case. It's a powerful group. It is doctors, clinicians, professors, medicine immunologist epidemiologists. There's something called the Great Barrington Declaration. It's you Can Google it just Who will you know, Great Barrington Declaration. You'll find it right away and a group put it together and publish it, But they invited their colleagues to sign on like you could just sign that. Sign your name. I'm saying I agree with this. Thousands of doctors and again experts have signed on to this was started by a group one of whom is professor medicines. Stanford University's This is not some fringe political group. Whatever that these air the top people, they know a lot more than Then Dr Fauci, believe me, so so that's out there. But the question is, is it getting through to the politicians? I mean, they can his powerful science and I've decided some of it. And this Great Barrington Declaration has more their new studies coming out all the time. They say the same thing. But Try doing it on Twitter or fucking. You'll get censored. You'll get canceled. We'll put a stick around your tweet because somehow you're not nearly the sun, will you? Actually you are following the science. It's just not the science that they want. They want the lockdown Science, which is Very thin and very weak s O. The politicians don't know any better. They're doing what they politicians have to be seen to be doing something even though they don't know what they're doing, which is correct. They just want to do something for show, you know, you know Andrew Cuomo. Gretchen Whitmer. Gavin is from all these governors over the country are you know they're putting on a show, but they don't know what they're talking about. They're relying on a small sliver.

F.D.A. Clears Pfizer Vaccine, and Millions of Doses Will Be Shipped Right Away
"Food and drug administration has authorized the first covid nineteen vaccine in the united states. The vaccine developed by pfizer and its german partner bio tech appears to be very safe and effective. The authorization is for people aged. Sixteen and older man could mark the beginning of the end to america's covid nineteen nightmare. First americans could be vaccinated as early as monday with some two point. Nine million frontline healthcare workers and nursing home residents expected to receive it in the first few days. A medical writer. Lauren near guard has more. It enjoyed administration authorized. Emergency use of the nation's first covid nineteen vaccine late on friday night. What that means is it sets the stage for what will become the nation's largest vaccination effort it will take a while for the first shots to roll out there will be a scarce supplies and initial doses will be rationed personal healthcare workers and her him residents and staff other groups such as other essential workers and people who are are at particularly high risk from the corona virus such as adults and people with underlying will come next. It will be probably at least spring before there isn't enough vaccine for the general population. There are several other vaccines in the pipeline. And the next one that the fda will consider is by madonna and the national institutes of health. And that one is up for decision in about another week. If both of those vaccines are able to be used The hope is that about twenty million. Americans could be vaccinated by the end of december. And then as you move into january and february of few you know that that number gets a little bit larger each month until spring when there it is hoped that there will be additional vaccines available and enough for the general population monsef slough we an immunologist and retired pharmaceutical executive.

"Good vaccine news just keeps on coming on the backs of really promising news. From the pfizer. Biontech and madonna now oxford astrazeneca have announced the preliminary results from their phase three trials which showed overall seventy percent efficacy as reminder madonna and visor biotechs. Vaccines both currently show around ninety. Five percent efficacy but seventy percent is still very solid. That's about where dr fauci had been saying. He'd be very pleased to see. But i overall seventy percent. Because there's a weird quirk of the oxford astrazeneca vaccine. That i as someone who is not an immunologist. Don't quite understand but hopefully we'll get more information on it in the coming days. Here's what i can tell you for now. The vaccine like the pfizer biontech one would need to be distributed in two doses however the first dose just needs to be half a dose for some reason. Doing a half dose on the first injection makes the whole vaccine overall more effective than if you got to hold doses quoting stat news. The preliminary results on the astrazeneca vaccine were based on a total one hundred. Thirty one covid nineteen cases in a study involving eleven thousand three hundred sixty three participants. The findings were perplexing to full doses of the vaccine appeared to be only sixty two percent effective at preventing disease while a half dose followed by a full dose was about ninety percent effective. That ladder analysis was conducted on a small subset of the study participants. Only two thousand seven hundred forty one a us based trial being supported by operation. Warp speed is testing the two full dose regimen. That may soon change. Astrazeneca plans to explore adding the half dose full dose regimen to its ongoing clinical trials in discussions with regulatory agencies spokesman told stat in an email and quotes and quoting from the new york times. The oxford scientists said they were still trying to understand why the vaccine was more effective at a smaller first dose. The first is supposed to prime the immune system while the second is supposed to boost its response while it seemed counter intuitive for a smaller i dose to be more effective. They said that strategy. More closely mimic. What happens with a real infection. End quotes peter openshaw professor of experimental medicine at imperial college. London explained to the associated. Press that vaccines. don't work. Like normal drugs where a higher dose produces more effects. The immune system is more complicated. Openshaw also notes that if indeed people do only need half a dose for one of the injections that's great news because it will be even cheaper to produce for more people. This was the vaccine candidate. That i was most excited about early on because it seemed like they kind of had a head start quoting the new york. Times astrazeneca's macos vaccine is designed to genetically altered in a dinner virus found in chimps. So that it harmlessly mimics the corona virus and provoke an immune response vaccine deploying. That technology has never won approval but the approach has been studied before notably in a small two thousand eighteen study of an experimental vaccine against the virus that causes middle east respiratory syndrome or mergers that viruses related to sars cov two the novel corona virus that causes covid nineteen so when covid nineteen emerged the team of scientists at oxford's jenner institute that had been leading the work on similar corona viruses. Had a head start once. The genetic code of sars cov two was published in early january. The oxford team sped to adapt their platform to the new corona virus and begin animal testing and quotes the other win in oxford. Astrazeneca's corner is unlike the pfizer. Biontech vaccine this latest one does not require any special refrigeration just standard storage and transportation temperatures of two eight degrees celsius or thirty six to forty six degrees fahrenheit and it can be stored for up to six months. The moderna vaccine requires cooler temperatures of negative four degrees fahrenheit but then can be stored at normal refrigeration temperatures after thawing in can be stored as such for a month. The pfizer biontech vaccine. Meanwhile requires dry. Ice to store at negative seventy degrees celsius or negative ninety four degrees fahrenheit s- that makes the oxford astrazeneca vaccine much more appealing for areas without the infrastructure or funding to sustain the pfizer. Biotech cold chain. And with that in mind. Astrazeneca is applying for early approval wherever it can as well as an emergency useless stained from the world health organization so that it can be made available in low income countries they plan to produce three billion doses next year and are committed to providing it at cost around the world through july. Twenty twenty one. The vaccine costs around three or four. Us dollars significantly less than the others late stage. Trials are continuing in the us. Japan russia south africa kenya and latin america and further trials are planned for other european and asian countries. So definitely more good news but watch this space for more
You Can Ring Nobel
"A video is making the rounds on the internet this week caught on one of those smart doorbell cameras. It's 2 a.m. And a man is anxiously knocking on his neighbor's door trying to wake him. Does the man need help? Is there an emergency is the neighbor's house on fire? Was there a Prowler in the area or some other kind of threat? No doubt. The man Robert Wilson is trying to wake his across the street neighbor to tell him that they just won the Nobel Prize. My name's Moxi and this is your brain on facts. A good reputation is more valuable than money for lilias. Serious a Syrian living in Rome at the time of the big b c a d change over we have no way of knowing if Alfred Nobel ever read publilius, but he definitely had reputation on his mind the Swedish chemist engineer and industrialists found a novel way to combine good old Gunpowder with the exciting new discovery of nitroglycerin to form a truly earth-shaking invention Dynamite. It was a game-changer for Industries like coal mining and it killed people like it was nobody's business both intentionally and through many many Factory explosions. Nobel got richer with each Improvement on the dynamite then his brother Ludovic died a French newspaper ran an obit for Alfred having gotten their lines cross somewhere along the way they were shown the remote As more the paper proclaimed. The merchants of death is dead. Dr. Alfred Nobel who became a rich by finding ways to kill four people faster than ever before died yesterday. That's gotta sting. Nobel had no children and a sudden intense concern about his legacy. So he decided to put some of the money he'd made into the service of repairing his name with a real long-term strategy in his 1895 will drafted the year before he died Nobel instructed that most of his fortune the equivalent of two hundred and fifty million dollars today be set aside to create an award five annual prizes quote to those who during the preceding year shall have conferred the greatest benefit of mankind provided you benefit mankind by way of physics chemistry physiology or medicine literature and problematically vague more on that later long piece. Wait a sec. Say those of you with better recall than me. Where's the Nobel Prize for economics? There wasn't one. There still isn't a part from the one that they're kind of is. The bank of Sweden prize in economic Sciences in memory of Alfred Nobel was created by Sweden's Central Bank in nineteen. Sixty-eight. What about mathematics game popular Apocrypha is that Nobel lost the woman he loved to a mathematician and so did not consider mathematics to be important enough. There's no proof for that story sadly wage and while no one knows for sure the reason it could be as simple as Nobel really wasn't a math guy. I feel you there. Winners are announced in October and November the culmination of a Year's preparation more than six thousand people like Nobel laureates AKA past winners School in various fields and officials from various universities are invited to nominate candidates about a thousand of them for each prize, which usually results in between 150 and 250 nominees. It's not just names in a hat. You have to write a detailed proposal in favor of your nominee and no no matter how much you want to know how cleverly you think you can get away with it. You cannot nominate yourself. Also. You must be alive. Nobel prizes aren't awarded posthumously at least not any more than a few were in the early days, but it was decided in the 1970s that that wasn't their bag anymore, but exceptions make the rule and there is one notable exception in 20 job. 11:00 Canadian immunologist Ralph Steinman received the Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine but he passed away between being nominated and the prize being announced akong assignments daughter. Her father had actually joked about getting the Nobel Prize shortly before he died. They don't give it to you if you've passed away. He said according to her I got to hold out for that. He didn't quite make it but they gave them the prize. Anyway, Steinman must have had a real sixth sense when it comes to convoluted award schemes because non-winning nominees are kept secret out for fifty years in part to prevent a sort of Susan Lucci situation. For those of you who don't recognize the name Susan Lucci is an American soap opera actress who was nominated for a long time. Emmy Award nineteen years in a row before she won.

Why are scientists obsessed with coronaviruses G strain?
"Salman one of the things that we get a lot of questions about is whether the coronavirus ease mutating and we know that it ease and one of the big reasons why this is concern is. Because with all over the world, scientists are working on vaccines and treatments against the virus. But if it mutates and the parts of the virus mutating other parts at those treatments targeting than, they might not work. So CSI rise put out some new research about the g strain of the virus, which is sort of the dominant strain now and whether the vaccines. That are currently in development still going to work against these dominant strain. That's right and the reason why this particular strain if you want to call it, a strain of virus has survived the full name of it is the D six, one, four gene mutation defy but turns you on Cadillac yeah, it's probably more transmissible and it's a mutation that's tended to. Survive around social distancing. So we've socially distanced the Wuhan version of the virus at the beginning was probably controlled by social distancing, which preferentially allowed mutants of the virus which were war transmissible walk contagious to survive, and this is one of them and it seems to be comedy certainly dominating in Australia. There is another strain on top of this that's dominating Aware. which is also probably more transmissible out. The fact is that this mutation is on the spike protein as you'd expect it to be because despite protein is the docking mechanism if you like for the virus to get into our bodies by the h two receptor sceptre, this lock and key mechanism in the body. Now, if this was in an area, which is also targeted by the vaccine, because the vaccines do target the spy proteins. And the spike protein has changed too much than the vaccines might not be effective against the. Six one, four gene mutation, and that's been the worry and particularly with other mutations on top. So as an accident of evolution, could it be that despite protein becomes resistant to vaccines and what they did in this study was a study of ferrets in the Csiro where the exposed this to a vaccine which has got similar viral backgrounds in terms of covid nineteen. To the other vaccines around and they found that in fact, neutralizing antibodies where generated numbers the sort of antibodies that could kill the virus, which generated two forms of the virus that have the D- six, one, four, g mutation. So that's good news. The also did some modeling on that and they found that from their modeling that supported the fact that the. Vaccine was going to actually cover this new strain as well. It doesn't mean to say they won't be mutations in the future that could mutate around the vaccine but at the moment we seem to be okay. Yeah. One of the things that was kind of comforting for Australian context at Laces they will look you that we're looking at a stray leeann isolate. So USTRALIAN samples of the virus that are actually currently circulating hia and the research was done here and so far it's still seems like so good in terms of the vaccines that are being developed us, right so The exposed the ferrets to viruses within without the the mutation, and the also did it in the modeling. So another thing that's come out research wise in terms of protection is that they've studied Tasmanian healthcare who had the virus a few months ago and they found that they don't have antibodies after about three months. Is this a worry attempts of how long were immune to the virus? If we do catch it that's A. Matter of strong debate amongst immunologists and infectious disease experts around the world. The current thinking is no. It doesn't matter what matters is has the body's immune system memorized the virus and memorizing the virus happens in t cells smell former white blood cell, not the white blood cell that produces antibodies. So you don't need to have antibodies for the body to have memorized the virus. So the real question will be is whether or not. No antibodies protect them against future infection and we'll just have to wait and see on an international basis and it's been unclear from the reinfection you've seen overseas with this relates strongly in one way or another to the existence of antibodies over the long term because in some of these reinvasion cases, they don't have an accurate assessment of their antibodies. So the presence or lack of antibodies isn't a wire in and of itself. But it could hint at the fact that immunity isn't very long lasting. So I think that the lack of antibodies don't know what that means and we won't know what that means until we've looked at reinfection rates and the results of vaccine trials and whether or not. It really matters whether you've got antibodies in your bloodstream or not. It's really whether or not the T. cells of memorize the virus that will be seen in. Whether or not the vaccine lasts and whether or not people who've had covered nineteen disease stay immune to reinfection so far there haven't been that many reinfection internationally give them that we for tens of millions of cases, but we'll see.

"So what does your body feel? It has to make us fill w awful by throwing a favor into the mix as well. And then cooking us in our own skin. Will when you'll ready this some infecting microbes do grow a bit less well at high temperatures. But now scientists in China have discovered that a higher body temperature also helps immune cells to get the size of infection much more efficiently. Immunologist Clermont is a common university. And she's been taking a look at the study findings for us. Hello clear. First of all women. We have an infection. Why does the body Micheals develop a temperature? What actually happens? So. Hi, chris. Yeah. What happens is there are a bunch of proteins produced in response to infections and other immune prices, then drive the production of molecules co prosecutors. Tunes and they caused an increase in body temperature, and that's really important for making a hostile environment for books. But also seems if you get this increase in temperature increases your chances of surviving and recovering from infection, which is very important, very important. It's very interesting as to why that might occur. So basically, the body temperature setting you, Brian, isn't it isn't there all chemicals released by the response to the infection that then triggers that set point upwards, and we'll do it an animals do it as well as. Yep. Clearly has a benefit to us. So what actually the research is in China saying in that type of what did they do? So all they did was they had a look at a really interesting process that goes on which is he need your immune cells to actually get the Sasha infections such information and in order to do that they mean sell such as T-cells for some shift to jump off the train of the circulation and get into the site of the tissue. That's infected so we're going round in the bloodstream these white blood cells. No in the blood and need to be where the action is tissues. Yes. So that patrolling in the button, I need to get off an into the tissues notice to tap. So the tissues do some really neat ways of juicing chemicals that will attract these cells into the tissues, but they actually need to get off get off the train. And so what happens is the lining vessels of the bloodstream produce on sticky molecules, and then the receptors in things like T-cells CDs. And then what they do is they to stick, and they rolled around the blood vessel wall in this kind of sticky way until they. Reach a sigh of infection, which is indicated by chemo threatened. So there's more kills that tritely cells in and then the titty cells actually move from the plaza wall into the tissue in that process. Stick role and invite the is how the tissue recruits the sells out the bloodstream, it makes the blood vessels in that region. That's got the infection it more sticky than normal. So the cells can gain a toehold and then get in. But how does the temperature side of things coming to them because we've been over to watch the microscopes that process you've just defined for many years. We knew that lot cells begin to stick better in areas weather's infection. So what is the temperature reading neat thing about his papers? What they did this this bunch of proteins, which are specifically up regulated when you get favor that could heat shock proteins and in this paper. What what the guys did was they showed that one of those an only one of those proteins code HSP ninety heat shock protein ninety was up regulated. And then we'll it was able to do was to send a signal from the inside of the cell to the outside yourself through very specific protein called alpha for integral which is a protein that actually makes the stickiness is the stickiest micro velcro. It is exactly right. So what happens is that the h has pay ninety binds to the tail of the alpha four integration and this regulates onto the cell surface. But even neater than that this protein combine to molecules of the integration say you get clumping of these receptor proteins and makes it. Multiple stickiness and increases the maximum stickiness to the blood vessel. So in other words, you've got the area where there's infection making the blood vessels..
