This week’s episode of The Highwire with Del Bigtree featured a shocking new Vaxxed vs Unvaxxed Study. Del interviews Professor Lluis Lujan from the Department of Animal Pathology, Veterinary Faculty, University of Zaragoza, one of the authors of Cognition and behavior in sheep repetitively inoculated with aluminum adjuvant-containing vaccines or aluminum adjuvant only.
Background to the study
Ten years ago there was a compulsory vaccination campaign of sheep in Europe in an effort to eradicate Blue Tongue virus a non contagious, insect-borne, viral disease of ruminants, mainly sheep and less frequently cattle, goats, buffalo, deer, dromedaries, and antelope.
The sheep are routinely vaccinated for prevention of a variety of diseases using vaccines containing aluminium adjuvants.
The repetitive injection of Al-containing vaccines in sheep has been related to a systemic, previously unreported syndrome, the so-called ovine autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ovine ASIA syndrome).
Listen to full interview here: Starting at 52 minutes.
Each flock of 21 lambs was divided into three treatment groups: One group received the vaccine, another the adjuvant-only, and the last group received an injection of normal saline. The lambs underwent an accelerated vaccination schedule receiving, within an acceptable experimental time frame, an Aluminium load equivalent to 6 to 7 years in the field.
84 male neutered lambs were selected and divided into 3 treatment groups of 28 animals each: (1) vaccine (containing Al-based adjuvant), (2) adjuvant-only, and (3) control. All of the vaccine and 92.3% of the adjuvant-only lambs presented injection site granulomas; the granulomas were more numerous in the group administered the vaccine. In these two groups, Al-based adjuvants induce persistent, sterile, subcutaneous granulomas with macrophage-driven translocation of Al to regional lymph nodes. Local translocation of Al may induce further accumulation in distant tissues and be related to the appearance of systemic signs.
This is the first comprehensive description of the morphology of persistent granulomas in sheep following injection with either vaccines containing Al-based adjuvants or the Al-based adjuvant alone. Aluminium was unequivocally identified by different methods both in granulomas and lymph nodes, with higher lesion severity in granulomas from vaccinated lambs.
