MIT is developing a microparticle implant
that will automatically administer
vaccines over time in babies.
A new discovery could revolutionize the way childhood vaccines are administered, as engineers at MIT have invented a way for multiple doses of a vaccine or drug to be given over an extended period of time with only one injection.
The process involves the invention of a,
This novel fabrication technique, called SEAL (Stamped Assembly of Polymer Layers), creates three-dimensional microparticles that resemble tiny coffee cups that can be filled with vaccines or drugs, which are sealed with a lid.
The "cups," made of a FDA-approved biocompatible polymer, can be designed to degrade at specific times, spilling out the contents.
And while there is no question this is a clear revolution in bioengineering, with numerous applications, many people will likely be wary of giving their newborn baby or infant a time released mega-dose of vaccines due to the potential risk of complications were the container carrying the multiple boosters fail or degrade at a non-scheduled rate.
The senior authors of the research, which was published in Science on Sept. 14, are Langer, and Ana Jaklenec, a research scientist at MIT's Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research.
According to a report by MIT News:
In effect, a capsule with a massive dosage of vaccine would be inserted into a baby to be time released due to the scheduled degradation of the compound encasing the vaccine.
In trials using mice, the microparticles were successfully released in bursts at nine, 20, and 41 days after injection.
The researchers used ovalbumin, a protein found in egg whites that is often used to stimulate an immune response, to test whether the particles retained their effectiveness inside the tiny "cups."
The mice exhibited a strong immune response nine, 20, and 41 days after the initial injection - suggesting that the technique was viable.
Jaklenec says there haven't been human clinical trials yet, and that there are none planned for the next year.
According to the MIT News report:
Due to Langer's project funding coming from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, there is likely to be strong international pushback - particularly in India - where seven children died during clinical testing of HPV vaccines on children in state-run boarding houses for the poor - often whose parents were illiterate and didn't know what they were signing, according to a lawsuit that came before the India Supreme Court.
A scathing report in The Economic Times of India reports on the fraud and scandals surrounding the Gates vaccine empire's foray into India.
The article, titled, Controversial Vaccine Studies - Why is Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Under Fire from Critics in India?, lays out the case that went before the India Supreme Court regarding the death of seven girls and hundreds of injuries that occurred during the clinical trials of HPV vaccines.
The trials were conducted using thousands of girls between 9 and 15 - thousands of which lived in state run boarding houses for impoverished families - most of whom, and their parents, were unaware of what type of clinical trial was being conducted.
According to the Economic Times of India report:
When Langer says in a statement,
Would you allow your newborn baby to be injected with these time released mega-dose of vaccine microparticles...?
