Simian Virus 40 (SV40)
After Alexander died, we had his tumor tested for the presence of Simian Virus 40 (SV40), a carcinogenic virus and known contaminant of the polio vaccine administered to children. As we stated publicly at the National Vaccine Information Center Public Conference on Vaccination 2000 held in September 2000, the tumor demonstrated the presence of the virus. We have filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the oral polio vaccine – Lederle, a division of American Home Products.
This letter was sent to the Immunization Safety Review Committee regarding their research into Simian Virus-40 Contamination of Polio Vaccine and Cancer which took place on July 11-12, 2002 in Washington, DC. In it we discuss the dangers of SV40 to some children and the committee’s responsibility to protect the public health despite any conflicts of interest.
