Measles Virus Associated with and Implicated in Breast Cancer
May 10, 2011 14 Comments
Researchers in Israel found a strong association with measles virus (MV) and breast cancer.
From the article: “MV is a ubiquitous RNA virus with highly contagious properties in unvaccinated populations and lifetime immunity after infection. Nevertheless, vaccinated individuals to measles may mount anti-MV antibody titers in a significant proportion, indicating subclinical measles. In addition, MV persistence is probably not a rare phenomenon in asymptomatic populations. MV RNA was detected in 8-20% of organs studied from autopsies, and MV* genome was detected in peripheral blood lymphocytes of 46% of children who were vaccinated two months earlier or longer. All cases showed the same circulating strain in the community.” (this paper states wild-type but I think it was vaccine strain – I am trying to confirm that at this time).
Obviously “asymptomatic” is not an adequate description if it means breast cancer 20-30 years down the road. The truth is we have very limited understanding of the long term effects of chronic viral persistence for nearly all of the viruses capable of this type of persistence.
I will be building more discussion on this important paper. But in the meantime there is good news in the outcome of this based on nagalase and GcMAF based interventions. Stay Tuned.
