LYME DISEASE MEDICINE is BAD NEWS!
A class action lawsuit has been filed in PA against SmithKline Beecham, manufacturers of the LYMErix vaccine, claiming they failed to warn doctors and the general public that nearly 30 percent of the population was predisposed to a degenerative autoimmune syndrome. The vaccine uses surface protein OspA as the foundation for its vaccine. When bitten by a Lyme infected parasite, humans are not exposed to OspA protein. The levels of OspA that enter the bloodstream at any phase of the 3-dose LYMErix vaccine, however, place patients classified by genetic type HLA-DR4+ at risk of developing a condition referred to as "treatment-resistant" Lyme Arthritis, the lawsuit says. "Once the autoimmune reaction is triggered, it cannot be cured and can only be treated symptomatically for the remainder of the vaccine recipient's life," the complaint says. SmithKline neglected to include the information in its widely disseminated promotional literature and insisted LYMErix was safe and generally well tolerated, [isn't that what we read in the papers!] the class action says. About one-third of the general population is HLA-DR4+; this trait is easily detected by a routine blood test; however, SmithKline never recommended that doctors screen for the trait before administering the vaccine, the lawsuit says.
The complaint further alleges [you'll love this part] that patients who are infected with Lyme bacteria when they receive LYMErix-- whether asymptomatic or in the early stages of infection-- could suffer symptoms more progressive and enhanced than if they had not received the vaccine. SmithKline, the class action says, also neglected to inform doctors and the general public that periodic booster shots beyond the series of three vaccination would be necessary to maintain immunity to the disease. [oops!] The class action includes counts of negligence, unfair trade practices and a bid for medical monitoring of those who are placed at risk of developing autoimmune arthritis but have not yet been diagnosed with the condition.

Editors note: Many Lyme patients report controlling Lyme with oral Ionic Silver Infusion more easily then the doctor prescribed antibiotics and other man made drugs! That says something about our medical system, when a mineral suppliment is more effective then designer drugs!
