How Paul Offit Profited Off The Backs of Kids Injured by GSK’s MMR Vaccine
“Get the fuck out of here! Piece of shit!”
That is what vaccine inventor Paul Offit yelled at Autism Investigated’s editor after being told that protection from personal injury litigation was making money off the backs of vaccine-injured kids. It turns out he was doing exactly that for his entire career, starting with his rotavirus vaccine’s development. At the time, the Wistar Institute he was working for was profiting from dangerous, since-withdrawn and secretly indemnified measles-mumps-rubella vaccines sold in the UK.
The co-inventor of Offit’s vaccine Stanley Plotkin is the inventor of the rubella component of all measles-mumps-rubella vaccines. Co-assignee of Offit’s vaccine patent Wistar Institute was the patent assignee of all rubella components of measles-mumps-rubella vaccines. That includes the now-withdrawn Pluserix vaccine introduced to the United Kingdom by Smith, Kline and French Laboratories, which previously funded Plotkin’s rubella vaccine development. During Pluserix’s introduction, Smith, Kline and French was an English subsidiary of Philadelphia-based SmithKline Beckman. Offit, Plotkin and Wistar were all based in Philadelphia as well.
Despite being already withdrawn in Canada for causing meningitis, Smith, Kline and French’s Pluserix vaccine was approved by the United Kingdom in 1988. In the supply agreement, the UK’s National Health Service secretly indemnified Smith, Kline and French Laboratories from liability. That made the British government liable for resulting vaccine injuries.
Subsequently, MMR vaccine injury litigation was shut down in the United Kingdom when federal funding was suddenly denied to lawsuits. Autism-vaccine research was shut down as well, the chief scientist fired and de-licensed. To this day, papers continue to be retracted including one by a long-deceased scientist. Medical records of children in the seminal 1998 vaccine-autism paper were stolen and expropriated by GlaxoSmithKline’s opposition researchers.
Paul Offit’s vaccine was developed with the dirty indemnity money that led to all of that. No wonder he still partners with GlaxoSmithKline to promote vaccines and dishonestly deny vaccine injury.
