Drew Weissman, one of the winners of the 2023 Nobel Prize in Medicine, previously warned of the risks of vaccine-acquired immune deficiency syndrome (VAIDS) posed by mRNA shots.
This week, Weissman, along with fellow scientist Katalin Karikó, were awarded the 2023 Nobel Prize in Medicine for their role in developing the mRNA technology used by pharmaceutical companies.
Their work specifically underlies the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines.
The mRNA shots were rolled out for public use in late 2020.
However, Weissman has previously warned about the “non-trivial” side effects linked to the injections.
In a paper published as recently as 2018, Weissman warned that prior clinical trials of mRNA vaccines had produced results that were “more modest in humans than was expected based on animal models… and the side effects were not trivial.”
Those “side effects” include “moderate and in rare cases severe injection site or systemic reactions”.
Weissman’s paper in the peer-reviewed Nature Reviews Drug Discovery highlighted the health risk that the shots posed.
They warned that can cause VAIDS – a form of AIDS-like immunodeficiency.
Their chief safety concerns, which they said should be closely watched in future trials, were about local and systemic inflammation.
They also urged keeping tabs on the “expressed immunogen” and on any auto-reactive antibodies.
“A possible concern could be that some mRNA-based vaccine platforms induce potent type I interferon responses, which have been associated not only with inflammation but also potentially with autoimmunity,” they wrote.
“Thus, identification of individuals at an increased risk of autoimmune reactions before mRNA vaccination may allow reasonable precautions to be taken.”
Weissman also warned in the paper that the mRNA shots can cause blood clots.
The authors noted in the paper that extracellular RNA could contribute to edema, and cited a study that showed it “promoted blood coagulation and pathological thrombus formation.”
“Safety will therefore need continued evaluation as different mRNA modalities and delivery systems are utilized for the first time in humans and are tested in larger patient populations,” they warned in the paper, which was published in 2018.
Meanwhile, as Slay News recently reported, a separate peer-reviewed study has also raised major concerns after scientists found traces of mRNA vaccines in the heart tissue of dead people.
According to the researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, traces of mRNA shots were detected in the heart tissue of patients who died within a month of receiving the Covid injections.
The researchers analyzed tissue samples from the autopsies of 25 people.
20 of those people were vaccinated shortly before they died.
Dr. Clare Craig, a British pathologist who reviewed the research, raised the alarm about the traces of mRNA shots in the heart, suggesting that it likely caused people to die suddenly.
“The vaccine should not have been there,” Craig said in a statement.
“There was evidence of heart damage.
“Those three people are now dead.”
Craig blasted governments and health officials for failing to address the issue, arguing that this latest study clearly shows heart damage after receiving the shots.
“At postmortem, if there is significant narrowing of the coronary arteries then heart damage is attributed to it on the balance of probabilities,” Craig said.
“Here this is a clear-cut association, an unusual picture of myocardial injury, and a failure to call it out for what it is.”
