Hi everyone,

Today we are releasing a very important episode featuring Dr. Kevin McKernan, a molecular biologist, who discusses the DNA contamination of mRNA vaccines. The conversation delves into the manufacturing process of the vaccine and the discovery of DNA contamination in the vials. The issue of endotoxin contamination and its potential risks is also discussed. The findings are replicated by other independent groups, confirming the presence of DNA contamination. The conversation concludes with a discussion on the SV40 promoter and its potential implications. We also explore the integration potential of DNA in the context of COVID-19 vaccines. It discusses the risks associated with plasmid chopping and the potential for DNA fragments to integrate into the genome. The concern of spike protein integration and its impact on gene expression is also examined. The conversation highlights the need for large-scale studies to investigate the correlation between DNA concentration and adverse events. It raises questions about the regulatory response to Pfizer and Moderna, including the redaction of important information and the use of different measurement tools.

Takeaways

  • Dr. Kevin McKernan's background in genome sequencing and his involvement in sequencing the marijuana genome.

  • The manufacturing process of mRNA vaccines and the discovery of DNA contamination in the vials.

  • The potential risks of endotoxin contamination in the vaccine.

  • The replication of the findings by independent groups and the confirmation of DNA contamination. There is a potential for DNA fragments to integrate into the genome, but the clinical implications are still unknown and require further investigation.

  • Chopping plasmids into smaller fragments can increase the risk of integration, while complete fragmentation can mitigate the risk.

  • The correlation between DNA concentration and adverse events suggests the need for large-scale studies to assess the safety of COVID-19 vaccines.

  • Regulatory agencies should ensure transparency and accurate reporting of vaccine components, including potential bioactive molecules.

  • Informed consent is crucial in providing individuals with complete information about the risks and benefits of vaccines. The market may move faster than regulators in responding to the future of COVID-19 vaccines.

  • The low uptake of the latest updated vaccine indicates a catastrophic failure in public trust in public health.

  • Regulators may face the decision of reformulating or pulling the vaccine off the shelves.

  • Jay Bhattacharya and Kevin McKernan express mutual admiration for each other's work.
