On May 26, 2016, Rohde and Conte published their 4th report on the movie “VAXXED”.
The report was titled “Did the CDC Censor Vaxxed? Or Did the CDC’s Proxies Do It for them? Columbia University’s Dilemma.”
The report and related comments were most informative and readers should review them in order to appreciate the role Professor Ian Lipkin of Columbia University played recently.
Dr. Lipkin's dislike of Dr. Andrew Wakefield is not new. In 2008, Dr. Lipkin co-authored a CDC- AAP sponsored report that I carefully reviewed and critiqued on September 12, 2008. My critique was to be published on Monday September 15, 2008 on the Vaccine Autoimmunity Project (VAP) web site but … it never was, because some time during the weekend, the web site was hacked and destroyed.
Two British vaccine information sites published my review but it was never widely distributed in the United States until today.
It should be mentioned that although Dr. Lipkin was listed last on the 2008 publication, he actually conceived and designed the experiments, analyzed the data, wrote the paper, obtained the funding, supervised the study and critically revised the manuscript.
Larry K. Pickering, MD, Advisor to the Director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases at the CDC and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics was responsible for the study oversight. He also helped conceive and design the experiments and he critically revised the manuscript.
Following is my original review of the 2008 PLoS ONE Research Article by Hornig et al.
The CDC tried again and failed again…But this time, it validated Andrew Wakefield’s findings.
A study sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and funded by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) was published on PLoS ONE on September 4, 2008.
PLoS ONE, an international, peer-reviewed, open-access, online publication by the Public Library of Science features reports of original science and medicine research.
The recent CDC-sponsored publication was titled “Lack of Association between Measles Virus Vaccine and Autism with Enteropathy: A Case-Control Study.” It described research conducted at Columbia and Harvard Universities and findings from three renowned laboratories.
