Study: Genetically Engineered Mosquitoes Used to Inject Vaccines into Humans

A new study from the University of Washington in Seattle used 200 mosquitoes to deliver live malaria-causing Plasmodium parasites into the arms of human test subjects in a new vaccine trial. The Plasmodium parasites were genetically modified via CRISPR technology to not make people get sick. It was reported that the body still makes antibodies against the weakened parasites so it will be prepared to fight real malaria. The lead scientist is reportedly not planning to use mosquitoes to vaccinate millions of people, but what is to stop others from doing so?

A new study published last month in Science Translational Medicine used 200 mosquitoes to deliver live malaria-causing Plasmodium parasites that had been genetically modified to inject malaria into the arms of human test subjects in a new vaccine trial.

Max Barnhart of NPR covered the study last week:

One Seattle morning, Carolina Reid sat in a room with nine other volunteers, each waiting to take part in a clinical trial for a new, experimental malaria vaccine.

Reid’s turn came. She put her arm over a cardboard box filled with 200 mosquitoes and covered with a mesh that keeps them in but still lets them bite. “Literally a Chinese food takeout container” is how she remembers it. A scientist then covered her arm with a black cloth, because mosquitoes like to bite at night.

Then the feeding frenzy began.

“My whole forearm swelled and blistered,” says Reid. “My family was laughing, asking like, ‘why are you subjecting yourself to this?’” And she didn’t just do it once. She did it five times.

You may be thinking – this is a joke, right?

But it’s not. “We use the mosquitoes like they’re 1,000 small flying syringes,” explains University of Washington, Seattle physician and scientist Dr. Sean Murphy, lead author on a paper in Science Translational Medicine released on August 24 detailing the vaccine trials.

The author made it a point to state: “To be clear, Murphy’s not planning to use mosquitoes to vaccinate millions of people.”

Do you believe him?

And even if Dr. Murphy himself is not planning on using the technology to mass-vaccinate people, what is to stop others from doing so?

Bill Gates, for example, has already spent $BILLIONS on developing a malaria vaccine over the past decade, and last year he funded a biotech firm that released genetically modified mosquitoes in the Florida Keys. (Source.)

Court Blocks Biden’s COVID Vaccine Mandate for US Federal Workers

March 26, 2023 NY Post 1

A prior injunction blocked the mandate in January 2022, only a few months after Biden issued the order, but nearly 98% of covered employees had already been vaccinated. Opponents of the policy said it was an encroachment on federal workers’ lives that neither the Constitution nor federal statutes authorize.

What else are the mosquitoes injecting? Does it affect wildlife? Due to the natural process of genetic self-adjusting, is the outcome filled with unknown DNA markers? Will the GMO bugs evolve into a constantly changing, constantly morphing bug that is impervious to its natural instincts? How would the “blood hosts” respond to these genetic freak shows, capable of rearranging the hosts DNA as well?

Whats wrong with persons who think they will make things better if they use this CRISPR technology to “make things better”. Stupid and poorly thought out.

There are a lot of home remedies to keep bugs from biting you.
Commercially: Deep Woods Off is one that can be bought at most stores. Plus Mosquitoes are only out for a short time every year. Some birds love to eat them so we much smarter folks can starting breeding and raising them as a good defense.
