In a documentary on the British broadcaster Channel 4, serious allegations are made against the US pharmaceutical company Pfizer. Accordingly, the company is said to have financed lectures that link the vaccine from the British-Swedish competitor AstraZeneca with cancer.
Both the Vaxzevria vaccine from the British-Swedish pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca and the Comirnaty mRNA vaccine from BioNTech / Pfizer are used worldwide against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. For the US pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and also for its partner, the Mainz company BioNTech, 2021 was an extremely lucrative year. Pfizer recently raised its sales forecast for the current year for the corona vaccine to $ 36 billion. Now the US group is facing serious allegations about its competitor AstraZeneca. The point is that the rival’s vaccine was maligned at scientific lectures allegedly sponsored by Pfizer.
Like the British newspaper Daily Mail reported, these allegations against the US drug manufacturer are reported in a documentary on the British broadcaster Channel 4, to be broadcast at the end of the week, raised. Pfizer is said to have financed an event at which speakers claimed that the British-Swedish competitor’s vaccine was ineffective, could even cause cancer and was not safe for patients with weakened immune systems. According to the report of the Daily Mail the allegations were made at a training seminar in Canada last year.
Also the British business newspaper City A.M. reports on the research of Channel 4. Therefore is it[called in the documentary that “evidence” was found that Pfizer funded a series of courses on its mRNA vaccine aimed at healthcare workers across Canada. In these presentations, the disadvantages of vector technology are said to have been addressed. AstraZeneca’s vaccine, which was jointly developed with Oxford University, is a vector vaccine. Speakers who had received financial support from Pfizer appeared at the events.
The scientific paper that originated the claims about the disadvantages of vector vaccines is believed to have been written by a group of authors, one of whom would have previously worked on Pfizer’s vaccine development.
The US corporation had vehemently denied that it had tried to “undermine the scientific endeavors of others”. The presentations were “incorrectly attributed” to the US drug giant and were from a third party. According to City A.M. Pfizer stated that “funds have been made available to a third party for an educational program” but “no presentation materials have been made available”. In addition, no lectures were edited or influenced.
The documentary by Channel 4 should also deal with Pfizer’s prices. According to an expert in mRNA technology, the cost of manufacturing Pfizer’s vaccine would be just 76 pence per dose. The US company would allegedly charge the British government 22 pounds (25.8 euros) per dose.
AstraZeneca’s vaccine made headlines several times this year for being linked to post-vaccination cases of cerebral vein thrombosis. The Federal Government’s Standing Vaccination Commission (STIKO) therefore only recommends the vaccine for people aged 60 and over.
