    India’s Bharat Biotech claims breakthrough in developing vaccine to fight Zika
    India’s Bharat Biotech, a vaccines and bio-therapeutic manufacturer, on Wednesday claimed to have achieved a breakthrough in developing a vaccine to fight the mosquito-borne Zika virus, which causes serious birth defects in children. “We believe we have an early mover advantage in developing the Zikavac and we are probably the first in the world to file for global patent for Zika vaccine candidates,” PTI quoted Krishna Ella of Bharat Biotech, as saying in Hyderabad. One of the “two candidate vaccines in development” is an inactivated vaccine that has reached the stage of pre-clinical testing in animals, Ella said. According to a WHO report, Zika is now present in 23 countries.

    I read this news yesterday. Really amazing. Hope the human trials are completed successfully soon. India can earn billions by selling the vaccine to suffering countries.

    Who Owns the Zika Virus?
    The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Zika virus a global health emergency on Monday (February 1) without providing much detail on the disease. So here are some facts until we receive more information:

    This sexually-transmitted virus has been around for 69 years and is marketed by two companies: LGC Standards (headquartered in the UK) and ATCC (headquartered in the US).

    The LGC Group is:

    “…the UK’s designated National Measurement Institute for chemical and bioanalytical measurements and an international leader in the laboratory services, measurement standards, reference materials, genomics and proficiency testing marketplaces.”

    One of its branches, LGC Standards, is:

    “…a leading global producer and distributor of reference materials and proficiency testing schemes. Headquartered in Teddington, Middlesex, UK, LGC Standards has a network of dedicated sales offices extending across 20 countries in 5 continents and more than 30 years experience in the distribution of reference materials. These high quality products and services are essential for accurate analytical measurement and quality control, ensuring sound decisions are made based on reliable data. We have an unparalleled breadth of ISO Guide 34 accredited reference material production in facilities at 4 sites across the UK, the US and Germany.”

    LGC Standards entered into a partnership with ATCC, of which the latter is:

    “…the premier global biological materials resource and standards organization whose mission focuses on the acquisition, authentication, production, preservation, development, and distribution of standard reference microorganisms, cell lines, and other materials. While maintaining traditional collection materials, ATCC develops high quality products, standards, and services to support scientific research and breakthroughs that improve the health of global populations.”

    This “ATCC-LGC Partnership” is designed to facilitate:

    “…the distribution of ATCC cultures and bioproducts to life science researchers throughout Europe, Africa, and India and [...] to make access to the important resources of ATCC more easily accessible to the European, African, and Indian scientific communities through local stock holding of more than 5,000 individual culture items supported by our local office network delivering the highest levels of customer service and technical support.”

    And who owns the patent on the virus? The Rockefeller Foundation!

    Why has the issue of patent ownership of the Zika virus not been the object of media coverage?

    Lest we forget the words of David Rockefeller in an address to a Trilateral Commission meeting in June of 1991:

    “We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years. … It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”

    Is the ownership of the Zika Virus by the Rockefeller Foundation part of that agenda of “supernational sovereignty [dominated] by an intellectual elite and world bankers…”?

    Of significance, the Zika virus is a commodity which can be purchased online from the ATCC-LGC for 599 euros, with royalties accruing to the Rockefeller Foundation.

    The Indian firm has been working on Japanese encephalitis for past 1.5 years, Zica is also transmitted thru the same mosquito. That's how they were able to find the vaccine. It's not that they cracked it within 3 weeks.
