The story of N-antibodies and why they are so important
UCSF Professor Aditi Bhargava brought up the issue with N-antibodies in November of 2021. People have been too quick to dismiss her concern.
In its Week 42 "COVID-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report" (published 21 October 2021), the UK Department of Health admits on page 23 that "recent observations from UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) surveillance data that N antibody levels appear to be lower in individuals who acquire infection following 2 doses of vaccination.”
What does this mean? It means that the vaccine interferes with the body's ability to make antibodies after infection against other parts of the virus.
In particular, vaccinated people do not appear to form antibodies against the nucleocapsid protein, the envelope of the virus, which is an important part of the response in unvaccinated people. The observation may explain why the vaccines actually produce negative efficacy as was shown in the Denmark study, for example.
Reuters did a “fact check” on this concerning observation and, as expected, found nothing wrong. Who’d have guessed? They said that since the S-protein response was so robust, your body had no need to mount a robust N-antibody response.
Not so fast… this is hardly a “known effect.” This seems more like a hand-waving argument to me.
In checking with the experts I knew, nobody was aware of this being something to simply ignore.
And the science points out it is very troubling indeed! Check out this tweet:
Especially the last two comments which are super-troubling:
This is why Professor Bhargava voiced her concerns in her blog on November 3, 2021:
New studies from the British Health Ministry suggests that COVID vaccines might interfere with the ability of our immune system to produce antibodies against other parts of the virus, crucial aspect for developing cross protection
The data agrees with her: it is showing the vaccines are producing negative efficacy and making our bodies more susceptible to being infected with other diseases including cancers and shingles (see Incriminating Evidence for references).
She also said in that same article, “Ideally, no one should be tested unless they have symptoms.” I couldn’t agree more with that statement.
I value her insights and I thank her for speaking openly and honestly about the dangers of these vaccines.
You mention the resurgence of shingles.
In the UK they have just started an advertising campaign saying it’s normal for this to come back in older people as their immune system weakens! I can only assume that we are seeing large scale numbers of people getting shingles for them to have to start putting out adverts about it. The website they have created and publicise during the advert is: https://www.understandingshingles.co.uk/
I’ve also posted this info to Jessie Rose in the hope that this gets some traction. It would be interesting to see just how high shingles is compared to pre Covid.
Do you see this as support for original antigenic sin? Does this complement and work in tandem with ADE in promoting negative vaccine efficacy?
