  "abstract": "<p>SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccines and a viral vector based vaccine have been authorized for use in the US.<br>\nAstraZeneca&rsquo;s viral vector based vaccines have been authorized for use in many European countries.<br>\nNumerous cases of bleeding disorders have been reported following SARS-CoV-2 vaccine<br>\nadministration. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) in the US shows 200 cases of<br>\nplatelet disorders following the vaccines. Such cases have also been investigated in Europe following<br>\nAstraZeneca vaccine administration. Prof. P&aring;l Andre Holme of the Oslo University Hospital and Prof.<br>\nAndreas Greinacher at the University of Greifswald have independently found evidence for this being a<br>\nvaccine induced autoimmune disorder. Greinacher and others identified platelet factor 4 (PF4) as the<br>\ntarget of autoantibodies induced by the vaccine. Greinacher&rsquo;s team have named it vaccine-induced<br>\nprothrombotic immune thrombocytopenia (VIPIT).<br>\nAnimal/plant/fungal/viral protein contamination of vaccines and the risk of them inducing autoimmune<br>\ndiseases was predicted and world vaccine regulatory bodies were all repeatedly warned of the dangers.<br>\nSafety engineering processes such as design Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) are still being<br>\nignored in the vaccine industry ten years after the Pandemrix induced narcolepsy disaster.<br>\nWe show plant proteins that contaminate the vaccines have high protein sequence homology to epitopes<br>\nknown to be involved in thrombocytopenia, using Immune Epitope Database (IEDB) data and<br>\nBLASTP bioinformatics analysis. BLASTP match score range is 27.8-19.6. The score for the epitope<br>\ninvolved in Pandemrix induced narcolepsy was 19.7, in comparison. The conditions required for<br>\ninducing autoimmunity are immunization using homologous xeneogeneic antigens that are similar to<br>\nself antigens (plant proteins in this case) and costimulation of the innate immune system either by the<br>\nadenovirus, lipid-in-water emulsion or the mRNA in the vaccines acting as adjuvants.<br>\nBleeding disorders are just the latest of numerous vaccine-induced diseases. For every individual<br>\ndiagnosed with VIPIT, thousands will develop subclinical disease. Of course, VIPIT is not the only<br>\nautoimmune disorder induced by these contaminants.<br>\n&nbsp;</p>",
