Nov, 21, 2014- In the last week, my MaterCare International (MCI) colleagues, Drs Elvis Seman (Australia) and Bogdan Chazan (Poland) have been investigating the Tetanus Toxoid problem and we have consulted other experts including a specialist in the endocrinology of pregnancy i.e. hCG and also the production of vaccines. Attached is a statement from MCI which we hope will assist the KCCB, Your Lordship and our Kenyan Obstetrical and Gynaecological colleagues. Our objective was to get to the medical and scientific truth of the matter. Our findings do relieve any anxiety that the women already vaccinated may have been made infertile or will suffer repeated miscarriage due to hCG antibodies.. The Kenyan vaccine controversy through the actions of the KCCB and Catholic doctors has alerted public opinion in Kenya and around the world that contraceptive vaccines have been developed for population control use in past years and were used but not d in this present situation.
With respect to the samples that I was given for analysis we have been advised that they have become denatured and cannot be properly tested. We are suggesting that a fresh vial be tested under the supervision of the KCCB and WHO by a competent and independent laboratory to allay all fears. Also while I brought the samples into the UK without permission of the authorities, we could not find a lab that would carry out the tests since there would be medical/legal implications. In addition I am most unhappy about taking them into Canada under the same circumstances. Anyway the opinion we have penned has been possible by referencing the results of test carried out in Kenya.
We have given a lot of thought and prayer to preparing this statement. We hope very much that it will help Your Lordship and Dr Karanja.
Dr. Robert Walley
