November 17 2010 meeting at FDA re Gardasil – extract

 

MS. BOYCE:  I just want to start by saying I have no conflict of interest.  In fact I sold all my Merck stock when I found out what it had done to my daughter.
I am here today because my daughter was harmed by the Gardasil vaccine.  My daughter was actually sterilized by the vaccine.
I don’t have a medical degree but consider myself pretty well educated.  I’ve spent the past 2 years researching medical papers so I could understand why my daughter had such debilitating side effects post-Gardasil, and I read hundreds of medical papers from various sources.  There is a lot of misinformation out there about what causes HPV, in my opinion.
I presented information last September against the vaccine at a similar FDA meeting when you were considering extending the vaccine to boys and older women.  At that time I told the advisory panel that many of the Gardasil girls were showing symptoms of severe vitamin deficiencies, specifically niacin.  That in turn causes pyruvate kinase deficiency, something critical to the Krebs cycle.  For those of you in the audience here that don’t know, the Krebs cycle is a vital function in the body that provides nutrients for new red blood cells, energy, and glucose, and repairs cell damage during periods of stress.
If the person has severe pyruvate kinase deficiencies, the person exhibits a myriad of symptoms and can never recover unless they take supplements.  If they don’t get supplements, they continue to deteriorate.  That is what is happening with many of the Gardasil girls.  The symptoms are slightly different because of individual genetic makeup; however, all the side effects exhibited are caused by the same PK deficiency.
Unfortunately, since PK deficiency is a relatively new finding, only discovered in 1996, the majority of doctors have never heard of it.  I am certain they don’t understand that the Gardasil vaccine would have catastrophic implications for these individuals.
Since PK deficiency or hemochromatosis is the most prevalent genetic trait in the United States, any individual having it would have a difficult time recovering from a vaccine.  But my daughter was never tested for this prior to vaccination, even though your charts show that you do not include people with those autoimmune disorders in your studies.
Does this mean that each person getting the Gardasil vaccine will actually get cancer from the vaccine if they have PK deficiency?  I don’t know, but certainly there are those with genetic deficiencies that will have issues with it.
Already the May 2006 FDA VRBPAC reports that if a woman has HPV and receives Gardasil, her chances of getting cervical cancer increase by 44.6 percent after inoculation.  Is it just possible that HPV is caused by PK deficiencies?  I believe so.  Shouldn’t patients be tested for the most prevalent genetic trait prior to vaccination if this vaccine would be so dangerous to them?  And what about the test studies?  Were individuals with PK studied, a predominantly Northern European trait included in the test studies?  Right now today you showed they were not.
In my opinion there were not parallel populations put in these studies, unless the study that was included from Costa Rica, they were expecting to market this vaccine to Hispanics, which I doubt, since it’s the most expensive vaccine ever produced.
The Merck Manual clearly cites several types of PK deficiencies and even suggests that individuals with these inherited disorders would not be candidates for vaccines.  A few types of PK deficiencies I would specifically point out are G6PD, a traditionally Jewish trait, sickle cell anemia, and thalassemia.  There are many other names for the same deficiency, such as Celtic Curse, HH, HFE, mel(?) or iron overload, but they are all the same PK deficiency.
In fact most if not all of us have a slight form of PK deficiency because of several issues, including toxins in our environment, in our homes, excess minerals in our drinking water and foods, alcohol consumption, and a gamut of other factors, including stress and exercise.
I don’t believe scientists developing this vaccine had access to all the information they should have.  I want to believe that they did not understand that PK deficiency is also environmentally caused.  Everyone here needs to understand that PK deficiency is no longer just a genetic trait.  The effect of a live vaccine like Gardasil has tremendous implications for all of us because we all have some form of this deficiency.  We will not be able to recover from this vaccine and, perhaps slowly, will continue to exhibit debilitating side effects post-vaccine.
