[June 2006] Elliman MMR Letter
Competing interests: HB and DE have in the past received funding from vaccine manufacturers Wyeth, Aventis Pasteur MSD, GlaxoSmithKline to attend symposiums and conduct research.
UK’s GMC, Dr Jayne Donegan’s Story, Vaccines & MMR Here is the shocking story of how Dr Jayne Donegan was victimised by but won against the UK General Medical Council and members of the UKs Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation and all for giving accurate and truthful evidence in Court about vaccines and their hazards.
"Professor David Elliman, whose study said fears of a link between the MMR vaccine and autism were unfounded, admitted that he and Dr Helen Bedford had been given money by drugs giants SmithKline Beecham and Pasteur Merieux Merck Sharp & Dohme. Their report, MMR Vaccine - Worries Are Not Justified, is published in the current issue of the medical journal Archives of Disease in Childhood, and was used by the government to reiterate its view that the vaccine is safe."--Media Makers of MMR II---Aventis Pasteur MSD
There is much interesting information which can be obtained by reading the transcripts of Dr Elliman, an expert who speaks for the Department of Health on vaccination safety and efficacy, when he is in the hot seat and being asked penetrating questions by an expert interrogator such as Ian Stern QC, without being able to hide behind sound bites, edited interviews, or sweeping statement not backed up by evidence. It is notable that under cross examination on Day Two, Dr Elliman was forced to concede, that there have been no randomised placebo controlled trials of any of the vaccines in use in the last 20 to 30 years where vaccinated children are compared with unvaccinated children given an inactive placebo (sterile water or normal saline). In the one placebo controlled trial that he cited for MMR, the ‘placebo’ contained, amongst other ingredients, neomycin and phenol red. Neomycin is listed in the British National Formulary as ‘too toxic for parenteral (by injection) use’. http://www.jayne-donegan.co.uk/gmc Dr Jayne Donegan, MB
