Was a dangerous side effect of vaccination ignored by the Paul Ehrlich Institute?
On 19 February, Angela Merkel announced at the G7 summit: "The pandemic is not over until everyone in the world has been vaccinated." The German government's top vaccination watchdog, Dr Klaus Cichutek, president of the Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI), had published an article with a group of his staff just a few days earlier, that could significantly disrupt the chancellor's plans. The PEI researchers warn that in corona infections, the spines (spikes) of the coronaviruses can be responsible for major cell fusions with dangerous complications in various organs. This study was conducted at the same time as the testing of those vaccines that are supposed to induce the production of exactly such dangerous spikes - only without virus - in the cells of the "vaccinated". This does not sound good. But the warning paper does not even mention the vaccination with its spikes with a single word. Does the right hand not know what the left hand is doing at PEI?
WOLFGANG WODARG, 21 February 2021
The PEI research team, which also includes the director of this institute, Klaus Cichutek, had already submitted the article to the scientific journal iScience on 21 October 2020. On 5 February, the journal accepted it for publication. It is entitled: "Quantitative Assays Reveal Cell Fusion at Minimal Levels of SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein and Fusion-from-Without, (FFWO)". A translated extract from the article can be read in the attached footnote (1).
This scientific paper, written with the participation of agencies director, is quite something, because it was apparently published in order to once again point out the special dangers of corona infections. These consist in the fact that the spike proteins of the coronaviruses alone can also fuse neighbouring cells, which can eventually form a clump of up to a hundred fused cells and perish in the process.
The work also found that the mere presence of the isolated spike proteins, without the viral body, can lead to such cell fusions on a large scale. (2) Such reactions have been known for some time, for example since the 1960s from the Newcastle disease virus (3), or subsequently from HIV viruses, where even parts of the envelopes are sufficient to cause such pathological cell fusions (4). The measles virus is also held responsible for such virus-induced cell clumps in the brain, and herpes viruses stimulate cell fusions that contribute to the typical skin changes.
The genetic "vaccines" currently in use shall programme the recipient's cells to produce just such spike proteins throughout the body. In which organs this happens cannot be predicted. It must therefore be feared that the strong tendency to uncontrollable cell fusions triggered by spike proteins can cause severe tissue damage and corresponding immunological and haematological consequences. Tissue destruction, microthromboses and secondary immune complications could result in severe clinical pictures and death within a short time.
It is completely incomprehensible that the authors of the paper have, on the one hand, precisely investigated and described the dangers of this phenomenon, while the same agency - overlapping in personnel and at the same time - is entrusted the responsibility and the monitoring for the safe use of just those genetically engineered “vaccines”, which are supposed to produce exactly such spike proteins in the bodies of the "vaccinated. This obvious risk of vaccination is not even mentioned in the paper.
Clinical studies that explicitly observe or exclude such a risk with the vaccines are also not known. Of the adverse side effects known so far, several could well be explained by the fusion-from-without effect (FFWO). Further investigation seems urgently warranted. Vaccinated persons with side effects should be given the right to be examined immediately by an independent (!) body. If such a risk has not been ruled out, this would be another urgent reason to immediately stop all genetic "vaccinations" which are supposed to lead to the intracellular production and expression of spike proteins.
The PEI team further reports that, at least in the laboratory, the dangerous cell fusions could be significantly reduced by the administration of monoclonal anti-spike antibodies. Incidentally, Bill Gates mentioned the large-scale genetic production of such monoclonal antibodies for mass treatment in December last year.
Surely no one can want that: to make the complications with vaccinations, which would then have to be treated again with expensive monoclonal antibodies?
I would like to take this opportunity to point out the miserable risk-benefit profile of the "vaccinations" against Covid-19. For three genetic "vaccines" are currently being forced on many people by their governments after a hasty approval in a worldwide large-scale trial. All three are supposed to use slightly different technical processes to ensure, that after the injection our genetically modified cells produce such spikes as a vaccine themselves. This is cheaper and faster, so it brings more profits for the producers. But it is the first time that these technologies have been applied to humans.
Apparently, the Corona vaccinations do not have a great benefit. In the 19,000 vaccinated in the already poor BioNTech study, there were only 154 infections less than in the unvaccinated 19,000. The absolute risk of an infection was thus only reduced by less than 1 percent. In the vast majority of the population, there is cellular cross-immunity against anything that looks like Corona, even without vaccination. And even if a Corona infection were prevented by the vaccine, the other viruses would profit. They would then just have more space. All in all, it has also become clear in critical reviews that vaccinations against constantly changing seasonal respiratory viruses bring hardly any benefits, but risks. So now there is another one.

"Cell entry of the pandemic virus SARS-CoV-2 is mediated by its spike protein S. The most important antigenic determinant of cell entry is the spike protein S. The spike protein S is the antigen of the pandemic virus SARS-CoV-2. As the most important antigenic determinant, the S protein is the focus of various therapeutic strategies. In addition to particle-cell fusion, S mediates fusion between infected and uninfected cells, leading to the formation of syncytia. Here we present sensitive assay systems with high dynamic range and high signal-to-noise ratio, covering not only particle-cell and cell-cell fusion, but also "fusion from without" (FFWO). In FFWO, S-containing virus particles induce syncytia independently of de novo synthesis of S. Neutralising antibodies as well as sera from convalescent patients inhibited particle-cell fusion with high efficiency. In contrast, cell-cell fusion was only moderately inhibited, although S protein concentrations below the detection limit of flow cytometry and Western blot were required. The data suggest that syncytia formation may proceed as a pathological consequence during covid-19 at low S protein levels and may not be effectively prevented by antibodies."
