A new personalized mRNA vaccine for pancreatic cancer, cevumeran, has shown promise in a phase 1 trial and is advancing to a larger phase 2 trial. It works by inducing an immune response against specific antigens in each patient’s tumor, offering hope for a disease with typically poor prognosis. Developed by BioNTech, cevumeran complements standard treatments like surgery and chemotherapy, potentially increasing overall success rates.
NFL star Travis Kelce, tagged “Mr. Pfizer,” came under anti-vaccine fire for an Instagram post where he made a heart shape with his hands, sparking baseless claims of vaccine dangers. Contrary to myths, COVID-19 vaccines have a much lower myocarditis risk than the virus itself, and other heart issues aren’t linked to the vaccine. The American Heart Association endorses vaccines, especially for those with heart conditions. Kelce’s gesture likely celebrated the Super Bowl win or expressed love, not a vaccine warning.
There are so many quacks coming out of the woodwork to push pseudoscience about mRNA vaccines – now, Dr. Doug Corrigan, Ph.D., uses junk science and pseudoscience to “invent a method” that the mRNA vaccines for COVID-19 are going to… Read More »Doug Corrigan says mRNA vaccines will change your DNA
The CDC endorses the COVID-19 vaccine for pregnant individuals based on a study showing no significant safety concerns. Research involving 35,691 pregnant participants found typical vaccination symptoms and no evidence of increased risk for adverse pregnancy outcomes. The findings suggest the vaccine’s efficacy and safety during pregnancy, reinforcing its importance for maternal and fetal health.
Initial concerns suggested a potential link between mRNA COVID-19 vaccines and appendicitis, with Pfizer’s Phase 3 trial indicating slightly higher incidences of appendicitis following vaccination. However, a new study conducted by Denmark’s University of Southern Denmark, utilizing national Danish registry data, found no significant association between the vaccines and appendicitis. This affirms a previous interim analysis also finding an absence of correlation.
Early results have been reported for the new combination COVID-19 and flu vaccines are under development by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna.
Research shows that women who get the COVID-19 vaccine during pregnancy protected their newborn babies from the disease too.
I have been ignoring Robert Malone and his claims that he “invented” the mRNA vaccines. I just thought he would disappear, but now he’s like the other quacks in the COVID-19 vaccine world, spreading misinformation and disinformation about mRNA vaccines.… Read More »Robert Malone did not invent the mRNA vaccine — he now misinforms
The FDA has approved new COVID-19 booster vaccines that better target Omicron variants and subvariants. Recommended for six months and older.
A CDC advisory committee voted to recommend two new RSV vaccines specifically for adults 60 years and older.
