Memo to Cali. Parents of Currently Vaccine Medically Exempt Children: What happens if SB 276 becomes law?

Memo to Cali. Parents of Currently Vaccine Medically Exempt Children: What happens if SB 276 becomes law?

By now, all Cali. Vaccine Concerned (“VC”) know that earlier this week, Senator Richard Pan dropped the bill he’s been hinting about for some time. His SB 276 will eliminate the power of physicians to issue vaccine medical exemptions. Instead, doctors will submit form applications/requests for exemptions which will be reviewed and approved or denied by unspecified state health officials. Even more significant, but unsurprising is SB 276’s stated standard for which medical exemption applications will be reviewed: CDC contraindications,…

US Stem Cell Case Update; No breaking news but . . . .

US Stem Cell Case Update; No breaking news but . . . .

Per the Court’s scheduling order, the parties filed their pre-trial materials yesterday, March 29th, including what’s called the Joint Pre-trial Stipulation (“JPTS”) which lays out for the Judge what each party’s contentions are, lists disputed and agreed-to facts and legal issues. It’s about as good of a summary of the case as the judge or the public will get prior to trial. Because federal court cases like this have tight scheduling orders, it’s not an infrequent occurance that the pre-trial…

A post with two titles: The dissenting opinion everyone interested in the vaccine issue should read/ The Strongest Argument against Cali SB 276

A post with two titles: The dissenting opinion everyone interested in the vaccine issue should read/ The Strongest Argument against Cali SB 276

In late January 2019, Federal Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Newman issued a dissenting opinion which everyone interested in the vaccine issue should read and study. The Court of Appeals had affirmed the vaccine court’s denial of compensation to an alleged vaccine injured child on the stated grounds that the child’s injury was a result of a genetically confirmed pre-existing condition. The family moved for rehearing and en banc rehearing, which was denied, but Judge Newman wrote a dissenting opinion…

Cali. SB 276 moves to eliminate physician medical exemptions, but hey numb nuts, there’s a reason they’re called “medical exemptions”

Cali. SB 276 moves to eliminate physician medical exemptions, but hey numb nuts, there’s a reason they’re called “medical exemptions”

Last night, March 25, 2019, California Senator Richard Pan’s office dropped his new bill, SB 276 correcting what he has described as the rampant unjustified/fraudulent medical vaccine exemptions being written by some physicians. His solution is to have public health officers approve or reject medical exemption “requests” submitted by physicians. The bill also establishes the criteria for medical exemptions, and there’s no surprise here: CDC contraindications, roughly, the package insert contraindications for each vaccine. I think that would make California…

US Stem Cell Co-Defendant Gradel Throws in the Towel; Mediation fails (big surprise)

The consent order of defendant Theodore Gradel has been filed. He is no longer involved with the company and has agreed to a permanent injunction enjoining him basically being in what the FDA considers to be the illegal private stem cell clinic business. here it is: gradelconsentdecree On top of that, the mediation between the FDA and US Stem Cells and its remaining individual defendant, Kristin Comella has failed. No surprise here. What does that mean? Well it’s obviously not…

The Smartest Thing the Vaccine Concerned Have Done Recently (or maybe ever)

The Smartest Thing the Vaccine Concerned Have Done Recently (or maybe ever)

But first, the dumbest thing the VC do, IMO. I have been very critical of both the tactics and strategic decisions made by the Vaccine Concerned powers-that-be. For example, although I understand the emotions behind them, I think all the lawsuits challenging SB 277 were a waste of time and money. No court is going to create a constitutional right to a personal belief exemption, or stop mandatory vaccination under the current medical vaccine paradigm.  (You all know and hate…

Breaking News in the US Stem Cell Injunction Case!

Breaking News in the US Stem Cell Injunction Case!

But first a ho hum update Last week, both parties filed motions for summary judgment. What that means is that both sides are arguing that there is no need for a trial and that the judge can decide the case on the summary judgment papers. The government argues of course that the defendants are violating FDA law by using their more than minimally manipulated products for non homologous use, and that it doesn’t fit within the same day surgical procedure…

There’s just time for a quick update on the FDA’s Injunction Lawsuit against US Stem Cell Clinic

There’s just time for a quick update on the FDA’s Injunction Lawsuit against US Stem Cell Clinic

Recent fillings and orders which were expected: Longer papers for summary judgement. The parties jointly moved to allow each to file more pages than is allowed for summary judgment under the local rules. The parties wanted double the amount. The judge gave them less. Yesterday the parties filed a joint motion to cancel the local rule required mediation. Mediation is a waste of time in a case like this. There’s no money damages sought, and the Government already told US…

Real Time Censorship of case report on HPV vaccine associated with ADEM

Most pediatricians receive in the mail Pediatrician News. The most recent issue contained an interesting case report discussed in “Pearce-ings” by columnist Francine Pearce, M.D. It discusses a teenage girl who presented to an orthopedist with back pain of unknown etiology, who then had a seizure of unknown origin, according to the neurologist. The patient had more seizures and developed tics. She was hospitalized. A spinal tap and MRI confirmed ADEM (acute disseminated enchaphalomyelitis). She had been healthy and athletic,…
