DNA – Dog Kidney
- This cell line is called Madin-Darby Canine Kidney Epithelial Cells or MDCK Line.
- S.H. Madin and N.B Darby derived it in 1958 from the kidney tissue of an adult female cocker spaniel.
- The Food and Drug Administration approved Flucelvax as the first mammalian cell-based Influenza vaccine in the United States in 2012.
- The vaccine was produced by Novartis through culturing of the Madin-Darby canine kidney cell line.
- Dr. Sherri Tenpenny states: “Flu vaccines are increasingly manufactured in cell lines that are actually or potentially oncogenic, and FDA guidelines allow high levels of contamination and no spot checks are carried out.”
- “There is a real risk of residual retinal DNA and stray viral fragments from the animal tissues getting into flu shots. DNA snips are classified as either “infectious” or “oncogenic” by researchers who worry that the stray DNA is being incorporated into the recipient’s DNA.”
This Dog Kidney Cell Line is susceptible to the following diseases:
- Vesicular stomatitis (Indiana strain) this is Indiana virus; rabies is part of this virus family.
- Vaccinia a mystery virus. Virologist don’t know whether it comes from genetic recombination or if it’s actually a species that came from cowpox virus or variola virus by how scientist grow it (serial passage) for the use of vaccinations. (Pic below is vaccina that began at the vaccine site)
- Coxsackieviruses are part of the enterovirus family of viruses (which also includes polioviruses and hepatitis A virus)
- Reovirus is a virus that infects humans and animals
- Adenovirus is mostly microorganism causing virus that can cause upper respiratory disease, conjunctivitis, and gastroenteritis in humans. Mostly seen in children.
- Vesicular exanthema of swine is a highly infectious disease in pigs. It makes them very ill.
- Infectious canine hepatitis is an acute liver infection in dogs that’s highly contagious.
