    Dr Mary’s Monkey provides a detailed history of how the Salk and Sabin polio vaccines administered to three million baby boomers were accidentally contaminated with a cancer causing monkey virus known as Simian Virus 40 (SV). It also describes the massive cover-up initiated by the American Cancer Society and National Institutes of Health. Fewer than a total of 40 cases of Simian B Virus Infection have been reported in humans to date. Researchers suggest, however, that the true frequency of Simian B Virus Infection may be difficult to assess, since it is possible that exposure to the virus may result in mild or no apparent symptoms (asymptomatic infection) in some cases.

    Simian virus 40 (SV40) is a monkey virus that was administered to human populations by contaminated vaccines which were produced in SV40 naturally infected monkey cells. Simian virus 40 (SV40) belongs to polyomavirus family, the family of viruses that induce tumours in animals; indeed, the suffix oma means tumour. Simian virus 40 was first isolated from monkeys hence so named. SV40 was one of the first genetic elements to be studied by genetic engineering techniques and has been used extensively as a vector for. SIMIAN VIRUS 40 (SV40): A POSSIBLE HUMAN POLYOMAVIRUS WORKSHOP - Tuesday, Janu Between and a polio vaccine contaminated with SV40 was accidentally given to millions of people.

    Simian virus 40 (SV40) Status. Reviewed-Annotation score: Experimental evidence at protein level i. Function i. Isoform large T antigen is a key early protein essential for both driving viral replication and inducing cellular transformation.   Two upcoming studies by scientists at the National Cancer Institute (NCI), one of the National Institutes of Health, provide further evidence that exposure to simian virus 40 (SV40) is not. assertions that SV40 is a human tumor virus. Introduction Simian virus 40 (SV40) was an inadvertent contaminant of the early poliovirus vaccines used throughout much of the world during the late s and early s. Hundreds of millions of people were immunized with SVcontaminated vaccine, making this by far the largest single-source.

At the time, Dr. Jonas Salk’s and Dr. Albert Sabin’s polio vaccines were made from these cells and the mass immunization program for polio had already begun.
