Antibody Responses As Determinants Of Efficacy In Influenza Studies

From the article written by Truman Green:

“It is probably little known that the vaccine industry’s entire efficacy testing protocols
have been developed around the supposedly self-evident truth that antibody responses yield
reliable information about whether a vaccinated person has acquired protection from a natural
influenza virus. Simply stated, vaccine researchers judge vaccine efficacy simply by counting
the number of antibodies present in a titer of the subject’s serum after inoculation with a
dead or attenuated antigen of the virus from which future protection is sought.

But question remains: Is the presence or absence of antibodies a dependable measure of future protection, or are these antibody responses, in fact, merely convenient and self-serving surrogate markers for protection invented by the pharmaceutical industry as a tool by which they can claim
that they know how much immunity their vaccines offer against future influenza infection?”

This article was published in Australia’s New Dawn Magazine and I shall be posted it in
its entirety in the next few days.
