1942 - Rockefeller's Yellow Fever/ HBV vaccine given to US Army Soldiers and
Allied Troops. 330,000 infected.
1943 - Acute Hepatitis causes a few deaths in the Military
1947 - Rockefeller Manufactures 28 Million Doses of the Yellow Fever/HBV
vaccine by this date. No record of any destroyed. All used?
1947 - Mac Callum (1947): classified viral hepatitis into two types, Viral
hepatitis A - Infectious hepatitis, Viral hepatitis B - Seum hepatitis
1975 - Stated: "Unlikely that immunization against HBV will ever provide
absolute immunity" (Sierra Leone = has one of the highest HCV rates today in
the World today) Some considerations regarding active immunization with
HBsAg. Krugman has demonstrated that injection of heated serum containing
conferred some protection against subsequent challenge with live hepatitis B
virus (HBV). Thus newly imported animals may be incubating HB infection, and
could give rise to false positive results in inactivation trials, unless
quarantined for a four to six month period prior to use. We have therefore
established a laboratory for chimpanzee trials in West Africa, and plan to
utilize only animals captured by trapping and held in strict isolation from
the time of capture. Three chimpanzees who received a massive transfusion of
plasma one year after resisting challenge with aliquots of the same plasma
inoculated intraperitoneally, all developed severe hepatitis, accompanied in
two cases by HBs antigenemia, despite strong anamnestic anti-HBs responses
in all three animals. PMID: 1204972
1988 - HCV Discovered, Chiron group (Choo, Kuo, Houghton) cloned and
1988 - HDV discovered (found only with HBV)
1989 - HCV isolated
1991 ~ 1992 - Investigators in Japan reported the discovery of a new
hepatitis virus and called it as hepatitis virus F, but failed to be
substantiated in the subsequent research.
1994 - Deka reported an isolation of a virus named HFV (Hepatitis
French[origin] Virus) on intravenous innoculation of stool extract from
sporadic non-A, non-B hepatitis, in New Delhi, India,however, no follow-up
report was noted. (Deka N; et al.:J. Virol; 68:7810~5, 1994)
1995 - Genotype I (1a) found in China near Unit 731 activities and 98% in
I agree Tarzan. Big drug companies selling lots of medicines = Big profit. There is no incentive for cures because so many are making money off it. The doctors make money to diagnose diseases and probably get kick backs from the drug companies to prescribe certain drugs. If doctors "cured" everyone they too would be out of business. The only one that loses in the equation is the sick patient.

Thanks for the reply mate.I 2 sometimes think that this is issue is 2 big to fight and i can only hope that societys worldwide will aweken to what is happening around us.I just have to believe sometimes that after so long as you stated we cand send machines to other worlds but we cant cure disease.I refuse to belive the comments of a certain individuals on these boards over the complexcitiy of the pharmacuetical buisness and that these empires are not in the buisness of hiding "magic bullets".
I also coudnt agree more in regards to your comments on the state of the education systems worldwide.its become more sidetracked by the day.People are getting disected by characterisitics into future career paths instead of being enriched with a social consious.
I have also read of a similar incident in regards to vaccines and the cold war but i will have to look into the details of it.
