Citation impact and social media visibility of Great Barrington and John Snow signatories for COVID-19 strategy

January, 2022

Abstract

Objective 

The Great Barrington Declaration (GBD) and the John Snow Memorandum (JSM), each signed by numerous scientists, have proposed hotly debated strategies for handling the COVID-19 pandemic. The current analysis aimed to examine whether the prevailing narrative that GBD is a minority view among experts is true.

Innate Immune Suppression by SARS-CoV-2 mRNA Vaccinations: The role of G-quadruplexes, exosomes and microRNAs

January, 2022

Highlights

• mRNA vaccines promote sustained synthesis of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

• The spike protein is neurotoxic, and it impairs DNA repair mechanisms.

• Suppression of type I interferon responses results in impaired innate immunity.

• The mRNA vaccines potentially cause increased risk to infectious diseases and cancer.

• Codon optimization results in G-rich mRNA that has unpredictable complex effects.

Abstract

Immune imprinting, breadth of variant recognition and germinal center response in human SARS-CoV-2 infection and vaccination

January, 2022

Highlights

• Vaccination confers broader IgG binding of variant RBDs than SARS-CoV-2 infection

• Imprinting from initial antigen exposures alters IgG responses to viral variants

• Histology of mRNA vaccinee lymph nodes shows abundant germinal centers

• Vaccine spike antigen and mRNA persist for weeks in lymph node germinal centers

Efficacy and Safety of Vitamin D Supplementation to Prevent COVID-19 in Frontline Healthcare Workers. A Randomized Clinical Trial

April, 2022

Background

Associations between vitamin D (VD) deficiency and the risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection have been documented in cross-sectional population studies. Intervention studies in patients with moderate to severe COVID-19 have failed to consistently document a beneficial effect.

Objective

To determine the efficacy and safety of VD-supplementation in the prevention of SARS-CoV-2 infection in highly exposed individuals.
