Approximate Time line for Hepatitis



Greece, Late 5th Century, B.C. - Jaundice: described by Hippocrates.

8th Century - Infectious nature: suggested.

17th ~ 19th centuries - Outbreaks of epidemics of jaundice: occurred in

military and civilian populations during the war. (i.e. viral hepatitis A).

1883 - Lurman reported outbreaks of serum hepatitis following vaccination

of dockers.

1900's - Walter Reed dies 2 years after work in Panama on Yellow Fever

1908 - McDonald postulated that the infectious jaundice is caused by virus.

1910's - Experiments on vector transmission with Yellow fever, Diphtheria,

Polio, etc..

1920's - Unsafe testing with X-ray and Gamma Radiation. Madame Currie

succumbs in 1934 from radiation posioning.

1920's - Diphtheria Vaccination programs go awry and harm many here and in


1930's - Radiation and irradiated blood used in Germany and Russia. HBV


1930 - Max Theiler begins work on Yellow Fever vaccination

1932 - Brazil has outbreak of 'Hepatitis' - blamed on vectors from Gambia

1935 - Max Theiler (from S. Africa) begins work on Yellow Fever vaccination

at The Rockefeller Medical Institute

1936 - Theiler uses Pasteur's Process to pass Yellow Fever through Mice

brains, rather than rabbits.(rearrangements in RNA genomes PMID: 7596811)

1937 - Japan's Ishii begins Unit 731 south of Harbin, Heilongjiang


1938 - 1 Million Brazilians now infected with Rockefeller's/Theiler's Yellow

Fever/HBV vaccination. Programme was funded by Rockefeller foundation and a

very interesting book

reporting this was published. The mosquitoes were thought to have been

introduced by a ship traveling from

the West Coast of Africa.

1939 - Japan's General Ishii's Aide comes to NY and Rockefeller to obtain

"sample" of Yellow Fever/HBV virus. Japanese Army doctor, Dr. Ryoichi

Naito, visited the laboratory with credentials from the Japanese military

attached in Washington to obtain a sample of that strain of the Yellow Fever


1939 ~ 1945 WWII - A series of outbreaks after vaccination for measles and

yellow fever.

1940 - Rockefeller funding Medical experiments with humans in both Germany

and Japan, involved with Russians.

1941- Dec. 7th, Pearl Harbor attacked. Allied Troops to be deployed in high

Yellow Fever areas- S. Pacific, N. Africa, etc..

1942 - Rockefeller's Yellow Fever/ HBV vaccine given to US Army Soldiers and

Allied Troops. 330,000 infected.

1942 - Ft. Detrick's 'Defensive' Biological Warfare Program begins.

1942 - Schering taken over by the US Government.

1945 - WWII Ends in Europe and Asia. Veterans go home and donate blood in

all 50 States.

1945 - Thorotrast used as a treatment for TB in England. (alpha particles

cause cancers decades later) Same trail that has the hep infected blood

also has the Thorotrast trail.

1940's - "A containment effort would seek to prevent outbreaks" (hence:

immunizations of the with Yellow fever vaccination

contaminated with HBV) "successful Brazilian Anopheles gambiae effort of the

1930s...was repeated around Aswan during the 1940s" Note: Aswan is in

Egypt.....highest Hepatitis C Virus rates in the World today. Want to bet what vaccination

they used in Egypt during the 40's and in Italy to fight Yellow Fever?


1940's - A similarly intensive post-WWII effort against endemic An.

labranchiae on Sardinia (Italy) "almost eradicated" the target insect on

that island, but did eliminate malaria. Although that extraordinary effort

did not attain its goal, it influenced anti-malaria policy profoundly. I

know of no other elimination effort that attained

its stated goal and none against an endemic vector or pest.

1975 - Literature about severe viral hepatitis type B in infancy;.

1975 - Stated: "Unlikely that immunization against HBV will ever provide

absolute immunity" (Sierra Leone = has one of the highest Hepatitis C Virus rates today in

the World today) Some considerations regarding active immunization with

HBsAg. Krugman has demonstrated that injection of heated serum containing


conferred some protection against subsequent challenge with live hepatitis B

virus (HBV). Thus newly imported animals may be incubating HB infection, and

could give rise to false positive results in inactivation trials, unless

quarantined for a four to six month period prior to use. We have therefore

established a laboratory for chimpanzee trials in West Africa, and plan to

utilize only animals captured by trapping and held in strict isolation from

the time of capture. Three chimpanzees who received a massive transfusion of


plasma one year after resisting challenge with aliquots of the same plasma

inoculated intraperitoneally, all developed severe hepatitis, accompanied in

two cases by HBs antigenemia, despite strong anamnestic anti-HBs responses

in all three animals. PMID: 1204972

1993 - Uchida of Japan reported by PCR study that the so-called hepatitis

virus F might be a mutant of HBV, just could not be verified by commercially

available reagents because of the defect pre-C gene, mutation of core gene

and S gene, which come to be HBsAg (-) and anti-HBc (-) in serological

tests. (Uchida T: Microbiol Immunol 37: 425 ~ 439, 1993; J Hepatol 18: 369 ~

Implications of viral factors: (genotypes, level of viremia, quasispecies

nature) controversial severity of liver damages, response to interferon

therapy, transmission from mother to infant

1994 - 1998 No Surgeon General. CDC, NIH, FDA, HHS, all left to guide

themselves. AIDS funding dominates and all large Academic Institutions get

a piece of the funding prize.

1994 - Deka reported an isolation of a virus named HFV (Hepatitis

French[origin] Virus) on intravenous innoculation of stool extract from

sporadic non-A, non-B hepatitis, in New Delhi, India,however, no follow-up

1997 - TTV--Transfusion Transmitted Virus is a new virus first reported in

Japan in 1997 by T. Nishizawa in patients with fulminant hepatitis and

chronic liver

disease of unknown etiology.

1997 - Dec. No awareness or info about Hepatitis C Virus anywhere but on Internet.

1998 - Merck and Company earns $900 Million in HBV Vaccine sales. School

Boards and State Legislatures begin to practice Medicine and mandate HBV

shots by statutory requirement. No long term studies available. Research

says "caution" may be nervous system involvement.

1998 - Dr. Sadler appointed and confirmed Surgeon General- 1st one in 5


1998 - March House VA Congressional Hepatitis C Virus hearings with ALF, VA-Roselle,

NIH-Seeff, Koop, and Surgeon General Sadler - about a week into the job as

SGOUS. Dr. Koop not asked how many children he infected as a Surgeon in

Philly, or their health status today. Also not asked why he never spoke up

when he was

Surgeon General and instead focused on a much lesser issue- AIDS.


1998 - Dr. Seeff (from S. Africa) appointed by Congress to oversee Hepatitis C Virus

Internationally. Spends his career studying the 1942 Yellow Fever and HBV

'accident'- now will advise all on matters of Hepatitis C Virus.

1998 - Schering granted unprecedented monopoly by FDA over only current Hepatitis C Virus

therapy that still has only a 30% overall rate of slowing the virus'

progression in the liver: Bundling Ribavirin and Intron-A. Surprise! AIDS

Community now has the drug they wanted but FDA would not let them have years

earlier. Cooincidence or a real treatment for Hepatitis C Virus? AIDS Community will

convieniently supply Riba through their Drug Network, beginning with

Fisher's in Penn.

1998 - Proposed Veterans with Hepatitis Laws first introduced into the 105th


1998 - Naoumov, N. detected TTV-DDN in 18 (25 %) of the 72 patients with

chronic liver disease. The majority of TTV-positive cases had no biochemical

or histological evidence of significant liver damage. TTV-DNA sequencing of

nine isolates showed the same genotypic groups as in Japan: three patients

were infected with genotype 1, which showed 4 % nucleotide divergence, and

six patients were infected with genotype 2 with 15-27% divergence.Naoumov

suggests that TTV, similar to HGV, may be an example of a human virus with

no clear disease association according to the results -- the high prevalence

of active TTV infection in the general population, both in the UK and in

Japan, and the lack of significant liver damage.

1998 - FDA says only Riba (AIDS Drug) with Interferon can be used. AIDS

activists (ACT UP) rename themselves HAAC- (Hep advocacy and Awareness

Coalition) but do all they can to still the Hep message and the result is

that Hepatitis C Virus leaders are lead to believe the combo is the way to go- with less

than 30% sucess rates the Hepatitis C Virus Commuinty is chargedup to $20,000 a year for

treatments that do not work and genetically harm. AIDS Community is now

funded by Hepatitis C Virus Community.

1998 - Superinfection of hepatitis viruses --- (Vento et al.) --- Although

most patients with chronic hepatitis B who acquired HAV infection had an

uncomplicated course, patients with chronic hepatitis C had a substantial

risk of fulminant hepatitis and death associated with HAV superinfection.

Our data suggest that patients with chronic hepatitis C should be vaccinated

against hepatitis A. (N Engl J Med 1998;338:286-90.)

1999 - Rockefeller Health Grants - not a penny for Hepatitis C Virus.

1999 - Proposed Veterans with Hepatitis Laws reintroduced into the 106th


1999 - Animal Serum, advised not to use in testing.

1999 - HGV, HGV-GB, Silent HBV, TTV, etc...all begin to emerge in the

research and around the Globe. Media only sees AIDS. 35 Million Worldwide

with AIDS, 3.5 Billion now, at least, with a hep virus- and growing more

rapidly as it branches.

1999 - Research emerges to show Hepatitis C Virus not so much as a Liver Disease but a

Lymphatic tissue and Bone Marrow/Blood disorder that has wreaked havoc on

all organs and organ systems of the body for decades- liver is the first to

show effects of tissue injury, and liver is the only thing we look at and

that we fund with our research when looking for a cure. Hepatitis C Virus is a slow

motion hemorrahgic.

1999 - less than 250,000 people with AIDS (700,000 with HIV) in the US

receive $7.11 Billion in fed NIH research funding involving every major

Academic Institution. Harvard, Rockefeller, Stanford, etc... all have AIDS

Institutes for Research.

1999- 11 Million Americans with HBV/Hepatitis C Virus/HGV, receive $30.9 Million for fed

research. NIH explains that continued massive AIDS funding will eventually

help Hepatitis C Virus.

1999 - Reported, 1 in 10 vets in the US have Hepatitis C Virus. (ALF Congressional test.

6/9/99). Veteran population = 26 Million. Therefore, 2.6 Million vets have

Hepatitis C Virus today - many are homeless.

1999 - The fix is in! CDC releases to media a 6 year old study conducted

from 1988-94 saying 2.7 Million in the US have Hepatitis C Virus, not including any

institutuins like vets or prisons... media runs with 2.7 number and only

that number. 3.9 has now been chisled into 2.7. Simply math by their own

numbers say at least 5 Million today with Hepatitis C Virus alone.

1999 - NEJM publishes that children with Hepatitis C Virus can be managed early on

(inturpreted as cured by the public) only if drug companies can be brought

in to profit. Koops, the AIDS poster boy, becomes our poster boy! For a

price of course.

1999 - FDA is blind deaf and dumb. No where in site. Front door left wide


1999 - HHS last reported seen with Surgeon General and Red Cross- leaving

town at dusk! Driven By Rep. Chris Shays and Donna Shalala.

1999 - NIH has been bought and paid for by America's AIDS Institutes...which

needs NIH's support for continued massive funding. After are

only 10 to 15 years in the making, another 5 or 10 years of massive AIDS

Research ought to do it....... AIDS as a threat? Never was! Not a medical

issue either...political opportunity to make millions of dollars all in the

name of minority civil rights..... welcome to the year 2000! Where you now

place your life in the same hands that placed you there.

1999 - Insitute of Human Virology's head, Roboert Gallo, declares in mission

statement that AIDS is their top priority.

1999 Fall- ALF deliberately slashes Hepatitis C Virus numbers in half in NY and begins a

process to blame behaviors and Drug Abuse for Liver cancer rates. ALF NY

Medical Director (Dr. Di Biscaglle- St. Louis School of medicine) blames

liver cancer rates on drug abuse and behavior from last 30 years- not on

contaminated blood and blood products that their funders intiated over 60+

years ago - and now sit in positions to educate the population and

physicians. Both they have have not done.

1999 - WHO, UN, CBS, AP, CDC, all major medias, report that AIDS is a

growing threat at 33 Million worldwide with HIV (10 Million will have AIDS).

More than 3 Billion have hep......still no message from the media except

AIDS and needles and AIDS and liver problems are an issue.

1999 - Organ Transplant laws, Nationally, will soon be changed to help Liver

Centers, not sick people. Contributors come first- not common sense.

1999 - Reported that 100% of Commercial Pig Stock is infected with Hepatitis

E (HEV) a DNA virus.....but, as usual, no matter. We'll still use pig

organs- just do not educate Americans about it.

1999 - No where can the research be found to point to an AIDS threat- not

now, not a decade ago. Africa? 5-10% infected with AIDS in Africa.

200-300% infected with hepatitis. Focus will be AIDS.

1999 - Between 5.2 Million and 8 Million Veterans have Hepatitis C Virus- how many already


1999 End of Millennium - Patients left to educate themselves, families, and

communities, while those who are to help and are heavily funded- will not.

Hep patients are left to pay their physicians in order to educate them about

an illness they were not taught about in Medical School. Half the time hep

patients pay to educate their physicians and are told it is in their head.

Research has been public - yet the media and gov agencies have deliberately

ignored up to 155 Million American with a previous or past virus, so that

less than 250,000 with AIDS can obtain Civil Rights- or so it's claimed.

Every major Institution is being paid by the US Taxpayer for AIDS research.

People with hepatitis are now funding AIDS and the AIDS Community by means

like, Texas Prisons will now buy their Riba from Fischer's Pharm in Penn

(Aka The AIDS Community). People in Texas are paying people with HIV in New

York and San Fran. Texans with Hepatitis C Virus are now funding AIDS, thanks to their


2000 - The truth? Some assistance? A Cure? Don't bet your life on


Up to 20% - 31% of 26 Million US Vets have Hepatitis C Virus. 5.2 - 8 Million that have

served have

been trashed, name called, and now the research emerges showing Hepatitis C Virus 1b was

in the blood products they were given. Their families shamed, all to hide

the past and advance civil rights for less than 250,000 with AIDS.

Only the Drug Companies and Koop have the answers, we are told by the ALF

and others, and the Transplant Centers have a greater right to make a

financial killing- than we do to live.

Welcome to Hepatitis 2000! 155 Million Americans today have, or have been

exposed, to a hep virus- but you are not to know!

More than half the planet is now infected. You know all about, AIDS, an

illness that you will most likely never get- HIV. However, you are already

affected by HBV shots, Hepatitis C Virus, HGV, TTV, HAV, HEV, GBV-B, GBV-C, etc...

History will be brutal.
