A case report showing spike protein in heart and brain tissue raises more questions
Good thing the family wanted an autopsy
This interesting case report was published recently: A Case Report: Multifocal Necrotizing Encephalitis and Myocarditis after BNT162b2 mRNA Vaccination against COVID-19
The report was about a 76 year old man who had received three doses of two different COVID-19 vaccines. It makes a strong case that COVID-19 vaccination played a role in accelerating his death.
This article will (1) summarize what happened to the man, (2) summarize some of the key findings of his autopsy, (3) put the findings into context with what we know so far about the COVID-19 vaccines, and (4) go over some questions this case raises.
This man had adverse reactions from each dose of vaccine
What’s remarkable is that based on his reaction to the first two COVID-19 vaccine doses, this man should not have been injected again.
After his first vaccination in May 2021 with the AstraZeneca vaccine:
he experienced pronounced cardiovascular side effects, for which he repeatedly had to consult his doctor.
The man had previously been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD), and after his second dose, his PD symptoms noticeably worsened:
After the second vaccination in July 2021 (BNT 162b2 mRNA vaccine), the family recognized remarkable behavioral and psychological changes and a sudden onset of marked progression of his PD symptoms, which led to severe motor impairment and recurrent need for wheelchair support.
He never fully recovered from this but still was again vaccinated in December 2021.
Did you get that? He never fully recovered but still was again vaccinated, despite serious adverse reactions to the previous shots.
He died shortly after his third shot:
Two weeks after this third vaccination (second vaccination with BNT162b2), he suddenly collapsed while taking his dinner. Remarkably, he did not show any coughing or other signs of food aspiration but just fell from his chair.
He recovered from this “more or less,” but one week later, again suddenly collapsed silently while taking his meal. He died shortly thereafter.
Before the autopsy was done, the clinical diagnosis of death was “aspiration pneumonia,” which happens when someone chokes on something, like liquid or food. It’s remarkable that this was the main diagnosis when he hadn’t shown any signs of coughing or choking when he collapsed.
An autopsy was requested by his family because of the “ambiguity of symptoms before his death.” Good on them for being suspicious.
What the autopsy showed
In addition to confirming that the man had PD (Parkinson’s disease), the autopsy revealed that he had encephalitis, which is inflammation of the brain, signs of arteriosclerosis, which is the thickening, hardening, and loss of elasticity of the walls of the arteries, myocarditis, and issues in many other organs, like the kidneys, liver, spleen, and stomach.
Now, we don’t know to what extent some of these issues predated the vaccine injections. After all, he was a senior and had Parkinson’s.
However, they found abundant spike protein in his heart and brain tissues:
Importantly, spike protein could only be demonstrated in the areas with acute inflammatory reactions (brain, heart, and blood vessels)… This is strongly suggestive that the spike protein may have played at least a contributing role to the development of the lesions and the course of the disease in this patient.
Recall that spike protein is a protein on the surface of SARS-CoV-2, but it’s also what the COVID-19 vaccines encode for; that is, the vaccines make your body produce spike.1 So how can we determine that the spike found in this man’s tissues were from the vaccines and not the virus?
Luckily they looked for the presence of another viral protein, the nucleocapsid protein. They did not find it in his tissues. He had no history of having been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past either:
Since the nucleocapsid protein of SARS-CoV-2 was consistently absent, it must be assumed that the presence of spike protein in affected tissues was not due to infection with SARS-CoV-2 but rather to the transfection of the tissues by the gene-based COVID-19 vaccines.
They therefore ruled out SARS-CoV-2 viral infection as the source of the spike protein in the heart and brain tissues. This allowed them to make some rather strong statements:
A causal connection of these findings to the preceding COVID-19 vaccination was established by immunohistochemical demonstration of SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.
And (emphasis mine):
Numerous cases of encephalitis and encephamyelitis have been reported in connection with the gene-based COVID-19 vaccines, with many considered causally related to vaccination. However, this is the first report to demonstrate the presence of the spike protein within the encephalitic lesions and to attribute it to vaccination rather than infection. These findings corroborate a causative role of the gene-based COVID-19 vaccines, and this diagnostic approach is relevant to potentially vaccine-induced damage to other organs as well.
Putting these findings into context
Before this autopsy came out, we already had corroborating evidence that spike was harmful to cells, and could end up in hearts or brains.
By the way, the CDC website still says that spike protein is “harmless.”
Then there were studies that showed that the S1 subunit of the spike protein could cross the blood-brain barrier in mice, and spike protein altered barrier function in advanced in-vitro models of the human blood-brain barrier.
Then there was clear evidence that the vax mRNA could spread to unwanted locations, like the heart. Take this paper, which came out in August 2021:
Side note: this paper was fascinating; many of the sentences in the abstract or discussion did not actually match the data. It played a big role in my getting red-pilled, not only about the COVID vaccines, but the state of academic science in general. More on it here.
In that paper, they compared mice that had been injected with the Pfizer vaccine either intravenously (IV) or intramuscularly (IM), and compared them with control mice injected with normal saline (NS).
Hidden away in the supplementary materials was this:
This shows mRNA vax in heart tissue in both the intravenously (IV) or intramuscularly (IM) injected mice.
Recall that the vaccines are supposed to be injected intramuscularly, and we were assured that it stays close to the site of injection. It’s not supposed to get into heart tissue.
So in summary:
We have evidence that spike protein ended up in the heart and brain of a man, and likely caused inflammation in his brain, heart, and vascular system.
This corroborates with evidence showing that spike protein alone is harmful, and can poke holes in the blood brain barrier.
This corroborates with evidence showing that the vaccine mRNA can get into heart tissue.
This leads to more questions
This case study raises some questions.
If the man’s family had not requested an autopsy, his death would probably never have been linked to the vaccines. Recall that before the autopsy, his cause of death had been determined to be related to choking on something during mealtime.
How many cases are out there where the vaccine played a role in a person’s death but an autopsy wasn’t performed? Even among the autopsies that did happen, how many actually looked for spike protein in tissue? And of those, how many also looked to rule out viral infection by, for example, also looking for nucleocapsid protein? (Hint: very few.)
Was the source of spike in his heart and brains due to vax mRNA that got there, or loose spike? My guess is that because there was so much spike, most of it was due to vax mRNA that had left the injection site. But both are possible.
We know that some people get multiple shots and don’t seem to get serious adverse reactions from any of them. Meanwhile, this man had a noticeable adverse reaction from every shot he took. Doesn’t this suggest that something about this man made him more more susceptible to these vaccines?
Perhaps it had to do with his genetics, or the fact that he was sick and had Parkinson’s. You might think it had to do with his age as well. But we know that many young people have adverse reactions to the vaccines. In fact, when it comes to myocarditis, it seems like young men are more affected than older men. Maybe that’s just an illusion though; is it possible that older men are just as affected, but simply not being linked to the vaccines?
Ideally, any suspicious deaths would be followed up with an autopsy. Ideally, our health authorities would be the ones to take the initiative on this, instead of the families of the deceased.
The fact that they aren’t, tells us a lot.
