Past Covid Infections Don’t Confer Strong Enough Immunity, Study Finds, Underlining Need For Vaccines
"One of the first large studies exploring immunity from natural infection with covid nineteen researchers in denmark found some surprising trends including evidence that even those who previously contracted the disease should still get vaccinated in the study published march seventeenth in the medical journal. The lancet researchers took advantage of repeated corona virus test results from about four million people in order to how often those previously infected with sars covy to the virus that causes covid. Nineteen were reinfected. Since the test results were tied to people's health records. The scientists scientists could anonymous the data and compare those who tested positive during denmark's first covid nineteen wave last spring with those who tested positive during a second wave in the autumn that revealed key findings about reinfection rates in the country in the spring two percent of the five hundred thirty thousand plus people who were tested for sars cuvee to positive among them point six five percent tested positive again later that year compared to three point three percent of those who had tested negative during the first way that sets infection with sars covy to provides about eighty percent protection against reinfection. What's more there was no evidence that this immunity waned over the studies six month follow up period but when the researchers broke down the data by age they learned that this protection wasn't uniform. Protection was only forty seven percent for people over sixty five years old. The result in the elderly surprised me said lead researcher steen ethelbert of the statens serum institute denmark's equivalent of the us centers for disease control and prevention.
Covid reinfection is rare — but you're more at risk if you're over 65, study finds
"Who have contracted the coronavirus are protected against reinfection for at least six months. That's according to a new study published by Danish researchers in The Lancet medical journal. That immunity, however, diminishes significantly with age. The researchers found that natural infection reduce the chances of getting the virus again by about Percent in people younger than 65 that there was no evidence that that protection weekend after a six month period over a six month period, however, in those older than 65 of first bout with the virus offered just 47% protection against repeat infection.
How Psychedelic Drugs Are Making A Comeback To Treat Depression
"Depression. It can be a difficult mental illness to pin down. It can feel different for everyone and even those who struggle with it can have trouble identifying bought. It is a mostly came to understood that. I had depression through talking with my friends for the longest time. I kind of system that everyone felt this way. Like weird just like general malays for this twenty nine year old. Depression surfaced about six years ago and began as a feeling of being disconnected with the world. I didn't want to eat because they didn't feel like i deserve to eat. I don't know. I didn't hang out with friends because i didn't feel like i deserve to see my friends. I didn't feel like i should be punishing them by talking to them seeing them. This person uses they them pronouns. They're a maryland resident and work as a software tester. They sought help for their depression. Trying numerous types of treatments may visited a bunch of different mental health professionals and tried different types of arby's In different types of medication but it always kinda felt like things were getting worse and worse and a current really find someone who has really helped me understand what was going on like. I still didn't even believe that. I had depression. All the while the depression advanced it felt like being alive and lake wanting to die rolling constantly fighting over like the resources in my mind then. Their health insurance lapsed in two thousand eighteen making the situation worse a surprise solution appeared while they were scrolling on social media and a posting from johns hopkins university researchers and then one day i was kind of like clicking through facebook and i actually found this ad four like this little simon. Study silla simon. That's the psychedelic drug found in magic mushrooms. And i thought it was fake remarks. I didn't expect there to be you know like a a legitimate study showing up on like facebook ad but they had no insurance basically they were out of options so they called wanted to have hope again from the wall street journal. This is the future of everything. I'm janet babbling today on the podcast. How the hallucinogenic compounds silla zyban once associated with nine hundred sixty s drug culture is making a comeback and giving people suffering from depression and other mental illnesses. Hope for this twenty nine year old study participant. Depression was not something that happened in their family. My family's from the caribbean and lived in america probably for about lake in years. We came here in ninety nine. It's kind of interesting because where from like a place that doesn't really view mental health. The that like america's mental health. It took me a while to realize that. I was having mental health problems that i was kind of experiencing depression. Depression affects a staggering number of people hundreds of millions worldwide according to a study published in the peer reviewed journal the lancet in two thousand eighteen. The pandemic didn't make things any easier. Last june about a third of people who responded to web based surveys said they suffered from symptoms of depression or anxiety disorder. Those results were published by the centers for disease control and prevention the protocol for treating these conditions hasn't changed much in the past few years. What we've been using is typically one of two things either a medication that people take every day or we have psychotherapy dr. Alan davis is clinical psychologist and an assistant professor at the ohio state university. He's also an adjunct assistant. Professor at johns hopkins university. A lot of people will improve with either medication or therapy or both to basically have both have a better chance but it doesn't work for everyone. Some studies report between ten and thirty. Five percent of patients suffer from treatment resistant. Depression and davis is that similar to what he's found in his own practice working with veterans suffering from substance abuse trauma and other mental health issues. So he began looking for alternative treatments present and welcome to psychedelic science. Two thousand and thirteen in twenty thirteen davis attended a science conference and came across a study exploring the use of silla. Sivan a chemical compound found in specific varieties of mushrooms to treat cancer patients with mental health conditions. The compounds documented facts include feelings of heightened awareness ecstasy visions and changes in the perception of reality for researchers say one of the most useful qualities is its ability to dissolve the ego to allow a user to observe oneself from the outside in the study of cancer patients. The drug was able to alleviate some of the anxiety and depression that can be associated with having a life threatening illness. I was just inspired by that word. I thought gosh this really could have a strong impact in the areas that i'm working with veterans and with others davis became part of a team of researchers at johns hopkins university that put together a randomized clinical trial. Twenty four participants. They were administered. Silla sivan with talk therapy to treat their depression. Enrollment for the trial took place in two thousand seventeen and twenty nineteen and the results were analyzed in two thousand twenty. Most of them had had chronic depression meaning decades of experiencing depression though not some had had it for shorter amount of time but this study was a weightless control trials so some people came in and started treatment right away. Others had to wait eight weeks before starting treatment so we had a comparison group. The study subjects received an extensive intake examined questionnaire to confirm. They were suffering from symptoms of depression. Participants were screened for schizophrenia. And drug use as these conditions can interfere with suicide and treatment. The big worry many people have about psychedelics is what's often referred to as a bad trip. Mary negative hallucinations. That can be scary and this is kind of trip that can go bad. Martissant received hefty doses of these drugs. The doses are based on weight and they vary slightly but patients receive around twenty milligrams in the first session a bit more in the second session to minimize the risk of a negative experience. Davis says researchers focused on controlling. What's called and setting. They work ahead of time to ensure the volunteers current mood and surroundings while taking the drugs. Remain as calm and comfortable as possible and so we spend about eight to ten hours with people before they ever get the drug talking about what the effects are talking about. What may or may not happen when they have this experience and that's why we have to train professionals there with them not only to prepare them for that but to help them through the experience when it happens because a lot of people have anxiety coming into the session. The person we spoke to the twenty nine year old participated in davis study group in august of two thousand eighteen. They had no prior experience with psychedelic drugs and didn't know watch expect basically went in kind of blindly. I don't have any other options. So that's kind of my thought process at the time was just basically kind of sticking anything to the wall and hoping it would work after fasting the previous night the treatment can cause nausea. They were placed in a small tranquil room fitted with a comfy couch. The whole room was a really really cool in very comforting because like they had like these statues like imagery in their end like. I think one of the muslim dowa tibetan model. I wanna say this and like there was like this nice lamp. It's off this really. Soft light psychedelic assisted. Therapy participants are encouraged to bring in objects from home to make them feel more comfortable. Some bring in ten bears pictures of family. The twenty nine year old brought a lightness of an ancient sumerian goddess. Soon nana once they were settled in the room. They were given two pills in a wooden cop the therapists top that the sivan would take fifteen to thirty minutes to start working. In the interim they were told to put on ice shades and headphones. That would play a selection of music they choose from classical tibetan chanting african drumming and modern music too. Once the drug fact the participants says the first session became a kaleidoscope of mental images and sensations. I remember being in lake. Felt like mount olympus the fall of the gods like oval the clouds and suffering them. And then one of my god's up to me and she gave me a key fell through the clouds. And i felt all the way down through the earth and i ended up in hell which is really strange because they don't remember being scared even though i was in hell and i remember asking like hey you know why am i hair And it was like haiti's leading me through hell kind of just like showing me around for life this very cold and desolate last. He was like of course. This is where you would come like. This is where you've made your home. The self revelations continued throughout this long session and turned intensely personal. I remember like hearing like the beats. Come on and i felt myself in like this place like all of my ancestors were and i was really close to my grandfather when i was a kid. And he died. Probably around when i was like four and i saw him kind of materialize And he walked towards the youth like these. She'll bananas which is what he's doing her then he handed one to me and i always kind of was afraid that if he was alive he would be disappointed in me and i remember asking him you know. When am i supposed to do like if my family like my parents and lake my siblings can accept me and he said that he'll always be there for me and my ancestors will always be there for me and i like that scene just like it. Metsu in mental to me after about seven hours than drugs started to wear off when it was over. You know you're still kind of like feeling it but just not as intensely so just basically like this really happy kind of floaty failing and we couldn't drive so like i had to have a sister pick me up. They ended the experience hungry and exhausted as for the depression not much appeared to have changed then. They tried the silla sivan trip once more this time with the stronger dose and after that these say they experienced to palpable shift. It felt like i was back into the world again like i was in reality. A lot of people said that not only was there. Depression differently felt like they had come out of dark hole that they've been in for years but a lot of people regardless of whether they're depression was gone or or reduced said that there was something really meaningful different about how they view their life initial results for the study reviewing outcomes from up to a month after the sessions were completed found that silla sivan plus therapy was more than four times more effective than other treatments. Such as medication alone at one week. Fifty eight percent of the sample were in complete remission from depression that actually lasted up to four weeks. After fifty four percent of people were in complete remission and were now studying those same people up to twelve months after to see how long that remission lasted the rest of the participants in the study. Were not in remission they were still experiencing clinically significant depressive symptoms researchers have yet to publish the results of longer term outcomes for all the participants their condition up to a year after treatment and this was a small study. Just twenty four people. Some scientists remain skeptical of this kind of treatment not just of silla simon. But of the validity of the data an outcomes for all studies involving psychoactive substances
Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine greatly reduces virus transmission, Israeli studies show
"To Israeli studies have found that Fizer Cove in 19 vaccine greatly reduces virus transmission. Shedding light on one of the biggest questions of the global effort to quash the pandemic. Data analysis and a study by the Israeli Health Ministry and Visor found the Fizer vaccine developed with Germany's beyond Tech. Reduces infection, including an asymptomatic cases by 89% and in symptomatic cases by 94%. The findings air from a pre published study not yet peer reviewed but based on a national database that is one of the world's most advanced a separate study. By Israel's Sheba Medical Center, published Friday in The Lancet medical journal found that among 7200 hospital staff who received their first dose in January There was an 85% reduction in symptomatic covert 19 within 15 to 28 days with an overall reduction of infections, including asymptomatic cases detected by testing of 75%. More research is needed to draw a definitive conclusion. But the studies are among the first to suggest a vaccine may stop the spread of the novel coronavirus and not just prevent the people vaccinated from getting ill. Dr Jon Swartz and Burn cold clinical professor emeritus of infectious diseases at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health. The implications of this are enormous Republicans standpoints in vermin individual standpoint. If if the If these numbers are even numbers significantly less than this hold true, that is that once fully vaccinated. Well, first of all we know once fully vaccinated. It's Very, very, very, very unlikely. We're going to get seriously all and there's no evidence that you'll die after you being fully vaccinated. So we know that. But what if after you're fully vaccine, you get reinfected. We know you're not gonna get sick, but you could spread it. But what if you can't spread it? Or what? If it's very unlikely for you to spread it? It's gonna really mean that our masks they're going to come off sooner that we're gonna be hugging her loved ones a lot sooner right now. I'm fully vaccinated have been fully vaccinated now for this Just actually, three weeks today, um If I knew that I couldn't transmit this virus to my loved ones, I would My strategy would be very different. If I may ask you really come off. I could be hugging. Uh huh. But I don't know that yet, And so I have to still remain vigilant. And that is where a mask and social distance to be absolutely certain that I can't do that and think about all the health care workers. If the health care workers knew that they didn't it once they're fully vaccinated, they wouldn't transmit that would make an enormous difference in the hospitals. And think about just Transportation. It's just goes all the way down the line. So the implications are
Israeli study finds Pfizer vaccine 85% effective after first shot
"A new study shows a single dose of pfizer and biotechs kobe. Nineteen vaccine is eighty five percent effective in preventing symptoms of disease. Fifteen to twenty eight days. After it's given the findings of the israeli study published in the lancet medical journal come as more countries way whether to delay doses. Our reporter blonde pinch. Husky has more that seems to vindicate. The decision made in the united kingdom. To delayed second does in order to vaccinate more people as quickly as possible. More and more evidence is mounting from similar studies that delaying the second does is a sound policy. And if this were to be proven without a doubt then basically countries like the united states would find themselves being able to practically double the number of people they vaccinate overnight visor and biontech still recommend that a second dose of their vaccine be administered twenty one days after the first separately the companies also said today that they're vaccine can be stored and transported in normal freezers rather than at ultra cold temperatures of between minus one. Hundred twelve and minus seventy six degrees fahrenheit which pose logistical challenges.
Marjorie Taylor Greene: US House votes to strip Republican of key posts
"Report. That they're covid. Nineteen shot may not only protect against disease but also help to prevent spread of the sars o. V. two virus the news was heralded by policymakers desperate to see a vaccine that can curb the spread of the disease but scientists have been a bit more cautious if confirmed the results would represent a breakthrough in the covid nineteen vaccine race so far the shots authorized or approved around the world have shown strong protection against moderate to severe disease but haven't definitively proven that people who get vaccinated are less likely to spread the covid nineteen virus but the data say. Some experts is confusing. So it's hard to adequately evaluate the companies claim that the shot can actually slow the spread of covid nineteen or not in the study published on the lancet pre print server which means the results have not been peer reviewed a gold standard for ensuring the scientific rigor of the findings astra zeneca and oxford scientists. Report that two doses of their vaccine was overall sixty six point seven percent effective in protecting against covid nineteen disease as part of its analysis. The research team also collected nasal swabs from and unvaccinated study volunteers in the uk every week and tested them for the virus. The scientists found that positive tests were about fifty percent lower among people who got two doses of the vaccine compared to those who weren't vaccinated because people who don't test positive are less likely to spread the virus the researchers extrapolated from those data. The astra zeneca shot can transmission of the covid nineteen virus. However that may be a bit of a stretch says dr carlos. Del rio executive associate dean of emory school of medicine. It's a leap of science. That i think still needs to be proven. He says what they show is that there was either decreased viral shedding or decreased detection a virus however they do not actually show that transmission was decreased. We can say less. Transmission is a possibility but the data on. That needs to come out says del rio. We wanna state the facts and don't want to overstate the facts. That concern was echoed by health officials. In switzerland who decided this week to reject the astra. Zeneca shot the data available and evaluated to date are not yet sufficient for approval. The country's regulatory bodies swiss medic said on february third part of the concern has to do with the fact that the astrazeneca study underwent a number of changes after the phase. Three trial was begun. A fact that some infectious disease expert say makes it difficult to interpret the results for a clinical trial as crucial as this one modifying the setup once it's underway is similar to changing the rules in the middle of a game the study originally set out to investigate a single dose vaccine but was changed to two doses when concurrently conducted early studies show that to set doses of the vaccine produced a stronger immune response further because of what astrazeneca said. Were mistakes in measuring doses. Some people in the study in the uk received a half dose for their first shot and a full dose for the second. one people also got different placebos. Some god benign nina cockles solution and some a saline solution. That could mean nothing. But it's also unusual to have two. Placebos sends that has the potential to introduce con founders into the study and because of limited supplies. Some study participants had to wait more than the three to four weeks originally planned between their doses while others when told they couldn't come back for their second dose at the time they expected chose to simply not get their second shot entirely. Frankly the way they did. These trials was really confusing. Says dr paul off it. Director of the vaccine education center at children's hospital of philadelphia and a member of the us food and drug administration's advisory committee that reviews vaccines for authorization or approval. This is the stuff you figure out in phase one. You don't fool around in phase three and see what works he says. Here's what the researchers report after getting a single shot. Seventy six percent of participants were protected against disease for up to three months. Afterwards from their their levels of antibodies generated against the virus which scientists believe are important to protect against disease began to drop those results suggest that while two doses of the astra. Zeneca vaccine preferable. A single dose could still be useful for about three months in controlling covid. Nineteen that might be especially useful information to act on if vaccines are in. Short supply.
Russia's Sputnik Vaccine Is Reported To Be 92% Effective Against COVID-19
"Approved vaccines here, you know about the Fizer and Madonna vaccines, which are already being handed out in Arizona. Then there's the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, which is coming, But there's another effective vaccine out there. The Lancet medical journal revealing Russia Sputnik v Corona virus vaccine has been deemed to be safe and effective results from a late stage trial. We found the two dose vaccine has a 92% efficacy against symptomatic Cove in 19. Mike theoretically know if Arizona ran out of all other vaccines. Would you take the Russia vaccine yet? Not a chance. No, I'm not taking a Russian vaccine. Who said I'm fine. Hey, does yes, he does. The former KGB agent says it's fine. I'm in eighties kid. The Russians were our enemy. When I was a kid, Reagan talked about the Russians. Am no offense to anybody out there. I am not believing a thing that Putin says and knew the people that wouldn't taken American vaccine in their arm would take a Russian vaccine in their arm. Are you kidding me? Not a chance. Speaking of vaccines, Some people can't wait to get them. I mean, really, they're not waiting. More
Russia's Sputnik V Covid vaccine appears effective, study finds
"Published report today suggests a Russian made Cove in 19 vaccine is more than 90% effective at preventing disease. NPR's Joe Palka has more Russian vaccine is called a Sputnik the although it was originally approved by Russian regulators in August last year on Lee, Now are the results appearing in a peer reviewed journal. Nearly 20,000 volunteers participated in the vaccine study. Three quarters of the volunteers received the vaccine one quarter of placebo in the study. Vaccine efficacy was 91.6%. Sputnik V is what's known as a viral vector vaccine, a different kind of Xing from the ones made by Pfizer and Moderna, but similar to ones made by AstraZeneca and Johnson and Johnson. It's given as two doses spaced 21 days apart. Results appear in the British medical journal, The Lancet, Joe Palka, NPR
You thought herd immunity would save us? Maybe not
"We're talking about pandemics norman one of the phrases that was bandied about a lot especially at the beginning was the idea of herd immunity that we get to a stage where the virus con spread willy nilly through the community anymore because enough people have had it that it doesn't spread as rapidly anymore and the theoretical threshold for that based on how much a single person with covid sort of tends to spread to was about sixty seventy percent. So what do we know about places in the world where there has been a lot of cover transmission whether we're reaching this community threshold and it's actually making a difference. Well funny you should say that because a couple of days ago in the lancet published a report from brazil which is actually quite disturbing. So the reported from a city in brazil called monas- who are monogamous. Which is in the amazon northwest brazil. I think it is and they had done a study of blood. Donors indicated four seventy. Six percent of the population had been affected with sars cov to by october of last year. And therefore you would assume with fat pie attack rates. You've got herod immunity which is above sixty as you said between sixteen seventy percent except that happened in january in other words just this month between the first of january in january nineteenth compared to december first two thousand nine hundred they had three thousand four hundred thirty one hospital admissions for sars coffee to for covid nineteen compared to five hundred and fifty two in the first twenty days for three weeks of december right. So they've had a big spike last year. It's dropped off. And now the saying a big spike again now. This and hospitalizations had remained low for about seven months. And you've just seen this spike in january and The question is what's going on here. So you could have overestimated the attack rate and the haired immunity ratio so possible that it's a high estimate in terms of when people were immune but even their low estimates based on perhaps errors in their assumptions of Wayne people what antibody response. It's still about fifty two percent as their low estimate there and that should still can fair some degree of immunity. But they do say that when you compare. The blood donors to average population. There was no difference in the university seems to be quite a representative sample of the general community. So they assume but seventy six percent is accurate so then they go onto looking at whether or not. There's been a waning of antibodies. During that time that could be other response but they showed that you and british healthcare workers reinfection was rare up to about six months after the primary infection. It could be due to variance because we've talked a lot on kron cast by the variance in brazil and they've really got to three lineages of variants in brazil which could be both more virulent and indeed war contagious. So the worry here is that we don't really know why they've had a resurgence in a community that should be pretty immune and it's not that these people are getting a model infection the second time around either because the measure that they looking at his hospitalization so presumably people quite sick. Yes and there is growing evidence that some some of these variants are were virulence. Although that's that's not been confirmed in any pure view jr journal. In fact one thing i need to say. But this paper is that it's in the lancet. And therefore it has gone undergone some degree of peer review rather than some of the other pre publication papers. We sometimes court from. So what are we. Take away from this. It seems like a pretty scary fact is is heard immunity. A false goal. Do we know whether vaccination is going to have a long long lasting immunity associated with it like this kind of worrying. It is kind of wearing. The good news is that consistent evidence from immunization at least with the astro vaccine and the fis vaccine even though the astro vaccine may be less efficacious at preventing all disease is that they do seem to generate an immune response. That's bigger and deeper than you get from alive infection which is very unusual. 'cause usually live infections. Give you a better degree of immunity particularly with influenza. But it seems to be contradicted in this. So it's likely that vaccination gives you a better immune response that lasts longer. But you'd have to say that from the study you don't have to watch pretty closely whether or not immunity wayne's faster are your vulnerable to variants more than people have thoughts. I mean it's it's mystery could be wrong but it's a it's a real warning sign.
Biden's Catholicism Could Influence The Abortion Debate, Activists Say
"President Biden is only the second Catholic president of the United States. He's also a supporter of abortion rights. Ah, position at odds with official teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. During the first White House press briefing of the Biden administration, a reporter from a Catholic network asked Press Secretary Jen Psaki about Biden's abortion policies. I will just take the opportunity to remind all of you that he is a devout Catholic and somebody who attends church regularly. He started his day attending church with his family this morning. NPR's Sarah McCammon examines what binds Catholicism's could mean for the abortion debate for Catholic activists like Marjorie Dannenfelser. President Biden's high profile example of a Catholic who supports abortion rights is troubling. It's a negative example of a deep and important moral issue that is being debated in this country. Dannenfelser is president of the Susan B. Anthony list, which has worked for years to help confirm conservative Supreme Court justices. She's particularly disturbed by Biden's embrace of a broader push among Democrats to repeal the Hyde amendment, which prohibits federal funding for most abortions. Ah, position he took in 2019 while running for the Democratic presidential nomination. After decades of supporting hide. The church itself has not changed. And its view ever on the dignity of human life and the need for its protection. He can't bring the Catholic Church along with him because of his political needs. But for those who like to see the church take a more permissive stance on issues including abortion, Biden's election is an opportunity. Jamie Manson is president of Catholics for choice. There are many issues in which Catholics are descending from the bishops and seeing that these are complex moral issues, whether it's same sex marriage, whether it's contraception or whether it's abortion Holding suggests a majority of American Catholics support abortion rights in most or all cases, and most Catholic women say they've used contraception, which the church also opposes. With a conservative Supreme Court majority and Biden in the White House. Manson predicts continued battles over issues including conscience exemptions, for example, for pharmacists who object to dispensing the morning after pill or employers who oppose including contraceptive coverage in their health plans. What I hope one of the impacts on public policy will be is to say, Listen, that is not what religious freedom is about religious freedom is about No one being oppressed or having their civil rights loss because of individual religious beliefs. Conservative Catholics, meanwhile, worry Biden will roll back Trump administration policies that they've seen as a victories for religious liberty. Already, the administration has said Biden is preparing to reverse the Mexico City policy, which prohibits US funding for organizations that perform or refer patients for abortion and other countries. But a study in the journal The Lancet found that the policy actually increased the abortion rate in some countries, most likely because it also reduced access to contraception. Natalia Imperatori Lee is a progressive Catholic theologian and religious studies professor at Manhattan College in New York. So I think the biting from a policy perspective is going to do things that end up Reducing the number of abortions, however, divided the rank and file. The church's position remains the same. On Inauguration Day, The U. S conference of Catholic Bishops released a statement praising Biden's piety but expressing deep concern about several of his positions, including his support for abortion rights. Sarah McCammon.

The second injection in a fitting bit of drama when to an eighty one year old man named william shakespeare from warwickshire. The county bond was born. The fanfare was good. Cheer to the nation. If but for a moment authorities warned that the vaccination campaign would take many months meaning painful restrictions that have disrupted daily life and punish the economy unlikely to continue until spring. The uk has seen over sixty one thousand deaths in the pandemic more than any other country in europe and has recorded more than one point seven million confirmed cases. Britain's program is likely to provide lessons for other countries as they prepare for the unprecedented task of vaccinating billions knee results on a possible vaccine from oxford university and drugmaker astrazeneca suggest.

Oxford-AstraZeneca announces first peer review vaccine study — but questions remain
"Drugmaker AstraZeneca's troubled Corona virus vaccine is getting a much needed shot in the arm. The vaccine, developed with Oxford University is the first to get a peer reviewed study published The study published in The Lancet medical journal founded it is effective in more than 70% of cases. There have been questions about the vaccine.
What's going on with the AstraZeneca vaccine?
"Everyone is continuing to scrutinize the oxford astrazeneca vaccine which just me awakes ago. Felt like how best chance at a vaccine for card and it's it's come up with results as we talked about last week. That looks really promising. And then on closer inspection. They looked a bit. We'd there was a thing where a small group of people in the vaccine trial received a half toys and they had better results. But then now there's questions about whether they would give him a half dose by accident. How do we make sense of what's happening with this vaccine trial. It's actually really hard. So we we signalled all this. I think last tuesday on corona cash. So it was quite clear then. The they done something unacceptable which was tried to average two very different trials and one going to sixty two percent result effectiveness result of preventing covid nineteen disease. Which if it'd been the first vaccine to report cited pretty good because the registration level is fifty percent effectiveness but came after a visor moderna with well over ninety percent effectiveness. And then how. They got their average of seventy percent. Sh- really sounds like confection. Which is that the got in another smaller trial. A result in people who have does food or following had got ninety percent effectiveness. And all this goes back to pharmaceutical companies making scientific announcements by press release. We could talk about this til kingdom come. There are rumors circulating this confirmation but apparently they're rushing to publish this and that there's a report of the financial times they will publish this in the lancet thursday so thursday of this week british time. We should know a bit more about this trial and remember. This is a vaccine. The promise not to make profit side of that is cheap. And they've committed to giving very large doses. i think something enormous like a third of the world's doses of vaccines are relying on astra any so. This is a lot riding on this vaccine. So six effectiveness is better than nothing but hard to justify spending money on if you other vaccines around that are ninety percent but if there's nothing else around than what do you do so they may have to repeat the trial With a half does fall by food if you remember. There is rationale for that. Which is that. The chimpanzee virus that takes genetic material into the cell in theory generate an immune response in other words you immunize to the chimpanzee virus so the second vaccine does that you get the bodies kind of immune to actually the carrier for the vaccine so it doesn't prove to be effective the russians get round this by giving you two different carrier vaccines first. One is a different carrier. Virus from the second vaccine doors has a different carrier virus. Antibodies to the first one won't affect the second one but the the reason they chose. The chimpanzee virus was in the theory. That the human being wouldn't generate an immune response to a chimpanzee vars. It would be kind of invisible which is maybe wishful thinking about. They have studied this chimpanzee adenoviruses before so really we can talk about it. A lot on corona cast but will know hopefully the end of the week an awful lot more than we know now. But i suspect they're going to have to go back to the drawing boards and try a half those trial just to see whether or not they can get a ninety percent efficacy so we have some questions from the audience about this. But i've got some questions for you. I do these sorts of things. The maybe the deicing mix apple the on shore uncertain results so these happening or clinical trials. But the difference. This time is that the public is watching it. Play out in real time or is there a chance that these frantic competitive pace of trying to get a vaccine out is may be causing companies to have to make errors and so then what does this mean for our ability to trust a vaccine once. It comes on the market all good questions. Teagan the reason you've got this problem is almost certainly rushing and missing out of what's called a phase two trial so normally you've got three phases of trials phase. One which is looking at safety tends to be small and a few hundred people then you would normally go to face to face to trial is a dose. Finding study which is the most effective does of vaccine or drug. That's going to get you your effect. That's in a larger number of people and you. You test the dozing now. What you've missed out here in all. These trials is a proper phase to study so they've rushed headlong into a phase three study with a guesstimate as to what the doors is. Now i think from memory. There was an element of doors finding in the face. Three study in the may. Well it'd in them does finding all the vaccine trials testing the site. Which is why you've got the half does or could be a mistake. We'll find out but it could be that we got the doors wrong. And if you remember rightly right at the beginning of this whole process we said nine out of ten vaccines fail and we haven't had nine ten vaccines fail so far we've had them all surviving this process. It's just that the astro vaccine was disappointing with a to those regiment. Michael's asking about the payoff. Side of things star. He's pointed out that pfizer medina have both sort of said that they vaccines are about ninety five ninety nine hundred percent effective but they've been very selective about releasing details of their methodology and is querying why they haven't been subject to similar criticism as oxford astrazeneca. I hope decisions are not being based on who has the best. Pr so the answer to that is we. Don't know until they publish the results. But certainly pfizer. Moderna were fairly straightforward. And what they said it wasn't transparent at all they just don't trust that to one thousand nine hundred. Ninety five percent effectiveness astro if you like was a bit more transparent although there were a bit silly and averaging the two trials so you could see. There was part of the study which showed sixty two percent. Genetic study showed ninety percent now if that happened with pfizer madera. Different does is. We don't know that all we know is that the does they've published. They got really good results but the regulators will see those findings. It's there's no. There's no benefit to pharmaceutical companies of lying to regulators like the food and drug administration. Because the will be called out. The penalty is a huge in terms of reputational damage and in the financial damage. So go to get this sorted out. And they've got to be honest with the public but this is the problem with a press. Release you just. Don't get a chance to scrutinize the data.

I think Trump's Trump card for all of this. I think he's going to use H. Q. He mentioned this back in March. He did it for a reason. Even though the press came out and said, You know it will kill you. You can't use it hurts your heart. They you know they held up The Lancet report. They had a observational study. Those turned out to be fake. Now we have a lot of clinical trials during the whole entire time has been clinical trials. There has been tests on it. I think what he's going to do is since we had this entire time period. I think the FDA eventually is going to approve it, and he's going to use this. As one of his trump cards as we approach the elections. I think he's going to use it to say that people can go and they can vote in person. You don't have anything to be afraid of. There's no reason to be afraid because we have some type of medication that will cure you. And I think he's waiting for the right moment to use it, and it's going to blow their entire plan out of the water. And this is why I I think they're planning on something else to happen. Maybe during the election or a day after the election, where they might try some type of Cyber attack or black out or something like that. They shut it down to delay the election even further. But once again The Power grid. Is not as weak as everyone thinks. I do believe they have protection in place. They're prepared for this. And I don't think this is going to succeed. Just like everything else is not going to succeed everything. The deep state Has been trying to do. If you really look at it, it's been failing. They thought, Oh, if we have the pandemic, the economy will fall apart. The market would fall down to 5000 points, and we could blame everything on Trump. Look, Unemployment went up to 2025%. We're in a recession, but It worked in the opposite way, because, remember, those numbers are in the past. All he had to do was open up the economy. Automatically the numbers we're going to improve, so we went from 2025% unemployment all the way down to 10% unemployment That looks incredible for him. Because now it shows everyone that he can take a complete disaster and improve it. Plus What else is very interesting about the economy Part is that Obama used to say Well, this is my economy. I handed it off to trump. Well, he just severed that with the pandemic. Because now the economy is all hiss. Because we went into a recession as the mainstream media likes to say, and now he's brought it back. Retail is up. We see home sales are up. I mean, if you look at different sectors, they are starting to form a V just like he said. And I think as everything opens and opens up and everything fills the capacity we're going to see more and more of this. I mean his other Age of the plan is opening up schools, which will allow parents to go backto work and I do believe this was all planned out by Hiss team and they're just moving forward with it and the economy is going to improve.

And this goes into not just government, not just Hillary Clinton, not just Obama, but every aspect of government. And businesses and sports and Hollywood. So he's making a lot of enemies. He understands this but to put America on the right track. He needs to do this, and I think the reason why, he said. This is that Because he's going Where the jugular And I think he's going to be in a separate location. The location that we're not going to know I even though he went to Bedminster, I think he's going to be insulated. I think he's going to be protected.

And that kind of thing so, but my problem with it 'cause I I see what's going on here. Jeff. You're listening. What got into a mmediately? Nope. Nope. It went. And so that's why we need to treat the food industry. Like, we treat the tobacco industry and tax it to punish it. So we need to tax meat and tax sugar and their funding over Michael Bloomberg.

I don't know why take my glasses off when actually need to look at things. I, I think it says I'm nearsighted farsighted anyway, cervical cancer HP vaccine's new study in the Lancet all very confusing with the main crux of some of the coverage that you're seeing. One big article from the Sydney Moore Morning Herald. A big article in the New York Times comes out of this Lancet, what did they call it? Lancet public health article and it's all about modeling what's going to happen within the Australian hobble ick following some big public health changes that were made and there's two big changes. Number one, mandatory. HP vaccine for youth. I wanna say they started with girls around age, twelve or thirteen. And then a few years later they opened it up two young boys as well. So any boy or girl that went to school at kind of a pre what they consider to be like a pre sexual age was able to get this vaccine to prevent the spread of HP, but also that was coupled with an increase in cervical cancer screening. So they had kind of just a massive public health campaign to to get women to go see the gynecologist and at the time get paps. Now that has since moved onto pure v. tests and it's moved down from getting annual paths to getting like once every five years as the new, the new, what do you call it standard of care? Yeah. And so these researchers were like, well, let model this based on a lot of different variables. So based on the rate of vaccination, based on the rate of cervical cancer diagnosis based on access to these medical services and we're gonna model what it looks like. You know this many years from. Now that many years from how are we going to get these numbers down? So currently, Australia, seven cases, maybe we should actually make a clarification now. HP v. is human papilloma virus and there's a bunch of different kinds different strains. There are high risk strains that are responsible for downstream a fair amount of cervical cancer cases, but they're kind of the vaccine doesn't prevent against.

Gonorrhea is up by two thirds. The combined forms of civilised are up by seventy five percent.
