Medical regulators believe adenoviruses may be responsible for the rise in fatal hepatitis in children. Janssen and AstraZeneca’s Covid vaccines are based on adenoviruses…
In the United States, the use of Johnson and Johnson’s experimental Janssen Covid vaccine has recently been reported further limited. One refers to the risk of blood clots in the brain – which has been known for several months. Meanwhile, the number of cases of the ominous “hepatitis” in children is increasing. Medical regulators worldwide are increasingly associating these with adenoviruses. Spicy: The Covid vaccines from AstraZeneca and Janssen are based on adenoviruses to which the controversial spike proteins of the corona viruses have been attached.
Die UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) reports on their websitethat the connection between the diseases and adenoviruses is being investigated epidemiologically. In addition, research is to be carried out into the extent to which a previous SARS-CoV-2 infection and an immune system weakened by the lockdowns could be factors in “hepatitis” in children.
However, SARS-CoV-2 infections have only been detected in a small proportion of the cases known to date, so that Covid-19 is unlikely to be the cause. At the same time, the authorities have completely denied any potential connection to the Covid vaccines because the majority of the children affected are too young to be vaccinated. The following paragraph can be found repeatedly on the website of the UK Health Security Agency:
There is no evidence of a link to the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine. Most cases are under 5 years old and too young to have received the vaccine.
At this point, however, there is a need for investigations – for example whether the affected babies and young children may have been breastfed by vaccinated mothers.
Studies point to the risks of adenoviruses in vaccines
In fact, not only does the UK agency see a possible connection between the “hepatitis” cases and adenoviruses, but so does the US CDC. According to a report Adenoviruses are said to have been found in more than half of all cases in the United States, although their role still seems unclear.
Potential risks of using adenoviruses for vaccine development have been discussed pointed out early in studies. It is also interesting in this context this study, which was published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). It says there under the subheading “What is toxic about adenovirus vectors?”:
The direct toxic effects of adenoviruses have raised a great deal of concern, particularly since intravenous administration of the virus can cause acute liver injury, as shown in animal models. This effect may have triggered the cascade of events that led to the death of the OTC-deficient patient – in this case, the recombinant virus was injected directly into the hepatic artery. Studies in mice have demonstrated the dose-limiting liver toxicity of intravenously administered virus, which in this model is mainly due to an acute inflammatory response resulting in the release of certain cytokines (interleukin 6, interleukin 8, tumor necrosis factor α) and recruitment of immune effector cells to the liver Has. These effects occur within the first few hours after adenovirus administration and do not require de novo viral gene expression. A recent study has shown that adenovirus-induced chemokine gene expression in the liver takes place within an hour of infection and leads to neutrophil recruitment, which is mainly responsible for liver damage.
Lots of open questions
The theory put forward by many critical observers that “vaccine adenoviruses” are the cause of children’s illnesses is undoubtedly not watertight. After all, the question arises as to how exactly these adenoviruses jumped to the children. Were the mothers vaccinated? So why aren’t they affected themselves? In addition, one would have to clarify why, for example, India – where AstraZeneca was predominant – has so far not recorded an explosion of such hepatitis cases in children.
On the other hand, as we reported in a previous article, there are also indications of a risk of liver damage with Pfizer’s experimental mRNA vaccines. In particular, the Covid vaccine from Pfizer has come into the focus of observers in view of explicit study results. This suggests that health authorities should certainly investigate the link between these hepatitis cases and the experimental vaccines (both vector and mRNA vaccines).
