(NewsGlobal.com)- In addition to her role as director of the Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center, Susan Fauci, Anthony Fauci’s wife, is the author of an article that explains how to enroll children in clinical trials for the COVID-19 vaccine.
This research, “Enrolling Minors in COVID-19 Vaccine Trials,” was supported by the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center and published in Pediatrics. The paper “propose recommendations for when and how to enroll minors in vaccine trials for coronavirus 2019” was written by Christine Grady. She is married to Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Grady also worked on the paper with four other co-authors.
According to what Grady asserted in the paper, there are strong reasons to consider enrolling minors in vaccine trials for COVID-19 before safety and efficacy have been established in adults. She said the costs that delay poses to children, their families, and society provide strong reasons to consider enrolling minors in vaccine trials for COVID-19.
The next portion of the study analyzes the potential advantages and disadvantages associated with different enrollment windows for children in clinical trials of the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as the most appropriate criteria for participant selection.
“One alternative approach to addressing this problem is to enroll children in the study when adequate data demonstrate the treatment’s safety in adults, but before there is evidence demonstrating the treatment’s efficacy. According to the researchers, “to implement this technique, enrolment of children should begin with those who are most comparable to the adults from whose safety data were acquired.”
The study was released in March of 2021, approximately one year before public health experts permitted and promoted children’s immunization against COVID-19.
A dispute has arisen due to Dr. Fauci’s choice to support research on “killing” bat coronaviruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The uncovered manuscript comes at a time when the debate is at its height. In addition, it would appear that Grady’s important role in regulating the ethics of NIH research and policy presents a conflict of interest considering her husband’s role in establishing America’s COVID-19 response and vaccination protocols.
It also follows records demonstrating Fauci’s rapidly growing investments and financial fortune throughout COVID-19.
