    Default Former Merck Scientists Sue Merck Alleging MMR Vaccine Efficacy Fraud

    VERA SHARAV
    Saturday, March 5, 2016

    Stephen A. Krahling and Joan A. Wlochowski, former Merck virologists blew the whistle by filing a qui tam action lawsuit — U.S. v Merck & Co. — in August 2010. The scientists allege that the efficacy tests for the measles, mumps, rubella vaccine (MMR) were faked. The document was unsealed in June, 2012.
    This is a major federal case alleging fraud in vaccine testing; it encapsulates how medical research can be manipulated to achieve desired results, and why it may be wise to question the integrity and the validity of “science-based medicine.”

    The suit charges that Merck knew its measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine was less effective than the purported 95% level...

    I've been trying to find more recent major information on this, but haven't been able to. Does anyone know if the actual trial has started?

    The trial has NOT started. Bottom line: the plaintiffs--the 2 former virologists--and Merck are all still in what is known as "expert discovery," which is a fancy way of saying "collecting evidence" and certifying motions. Based on what I could determine, it appears this case may be a year or two away from an actual trial, if ever.

    "this case may be a year or two away from an actual trial, if ever." I guess that's why we haven't heard of it. Thanks for the research Mr Wiz. You're a star!

    I suspect we're going to begin to hear more about cases related to vaccine safety & efficacy as more and more breakouts occur among "vaccinated" people. The 1986 Nat'l Childhood Vaccine Injury Act that gave almost blanket immunity to vaccine manufacturers also required the CDC to report to Congress biennially on vaccine safety. In other words, the gov't was suppose to make sure manufacturers "continually improved" their vaccines and report to Congress on their progress. The Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) along with Robert Kennedy, Jr. sued the gov't over non-compliance with the law and won the case in June 2018. The gov't flat out admitted it had not followed the law and failed to provide a single report on vaccine safety in the 32 years since the law was passed. Now, everyone's watching the gov't efforts in this area. Also, dozens of European countries wrote an open letter to the World Health Organization demanding that WHO do more to ensure vaccine safety around the world. The momentum is brewing to force these international vaccine manufacturers to produce better, safer, more efficacious vaccines, or risk being hauled into court and sued repeatedly for millions of dollars until they deliver better vaccines.

    Thank you, Mr. Wiz, for reliably filling in the blanks on this story. I had no idea the CDC had that responsibility, much less ignored it. Now how on earth are they going to review 32 years of inaction... that should by rights end up with a condemnation of the vaccine industry? Inquiring minds want to know!

    You'll love this. The Department of Health & Human Services (HHS)--CDC's parent agency--claimed in response to the lawsuit that it has worked diligently with manufacturers over the years to improve the efficacy & safety of vaccines. It just forgot to report all their good work to Congress, as required by law. OK. If we believe that one. When has any gov't agency or business failed to toot their horn upon achieving a substantial success and/or accomplishment. I find it extremely difficult to believe CDC would not have notified Congress "several times over" had it met with success in improving vaccines over the years.
