Pfizer Countersues Moderna After Being Accused of Stealing Covid Vaccine mRNA Technology

Pfizer Countersues Moderna After Being Accused of Stealing Covid Vaccine mRNA Technology

Meanwhile, Moderna had good results testing an anti-cancer treatment based on mRNA technology.

In August of this year, I reported that Moderna is suing Pfizer and BioNTech for infringing patents that are key to Moderna’s mRNA technology platform that was used to develop the covid vaccine.

In response, Pfizer has now countersued Moderna.

The ongoing legal battle now sees Pfizer and its partner BioNTech reject its rival’s claims it copied the shot.

Pfizer has accused Moderna of rewriting history, and dubbed its lawsuit ‘revisionist history’.

Manhattan-based Pfizer requested from a federal court in Boston that Moderna’s lawsuit be dismissed.

Pfizer and its German partner, BioNTech, fired back at Moderna on Monday in a patent lawsuit over their rival Covid-19 vaccines.

They are seeking dismissal of the lawsuit in Boston federal court and an order that Moderna’s patents are invalid and not infringed.

Pfizer asserts their vaccine technology was arrived at through independent research.

“Moderna is wrong, and its revisionist history is not based on fact. Pfizer and BioNTech did not copy Moderna’s technology,” Pfizer said in its response. “Rather, Pfizer and BioNTech independently developed their vaccine by utilizing innovation from their respective scientists and relying upon decades of research conducted by others before the pandemic began.”

Pfizer said the modification to mRNA was developed by research scientists at the University of Pennsylvania, one of whom is now an executive at BioNTech. It rejected Moderna’s claim to own the full-length spike protein technology. Pfizer said scientists have worried about coronaviruses since the 2003 SARS outbreak and by 2009 scientists understood the full-length spike induced a strong immune response.

On the whole, the companies may be better served if they allow the other side to take credit. Between the complete lack of failure to prevent transmission or infection, less than 4% of Americans eligible for the bivalent booster opted to get one.

New statistics verify covid is here to stay, vaccine or not.

A survey of American adults found that nearly half reported having been infected with COVID-19 at least once, with 35% saying they have tested positive more than once. The report also revealed that a substantial majority of Americans have not yet received the latest bivalent booster shot.

…The study found that the rate of COVID-19 infections is vastly underreported, with about 48% of all positive cases not reflected in official data. Among the survey respondents who tested positive for COVID-19 during the past three months, 76% used an at-home or rapid test. Among those who tested positive, just 36% followed up with a test at their doctor’s office or a testing facility (92% of whom tested positive again there), compared to 63% who did not.

Unvaccinated individuals were more likely to say they have never taken an at-home test for COVID-19, further suggesting that infections among the unvaccinated may also be going unreported.

My bet is that a vast number of Americans continued their regular routine while experiencing covid symptoms. They didn’t test, and they didn’t slow down much.

However, these results have not stopped Moderna from marketing a new anti-cancer vaccine that is based on mRNA technology.

An experimental cancer vaccine from Moderna Inc (MRNA.O) based on the messenger RNA (MRNA) technology used in successful COVID-19 vaccines has been shown to work against melanoma, sending Moderna shares more than 20% higher and driving up of other biotechs working on similar treatments.

A combination of Moderna’s personalized cancer vaccine and Merck & Co’s (MRK.N) blockbuster immunotherapy Keytruda cut the risk of recurrence or death of the most deadly skin cancer by 44% compared with Keytruda alone in a mid-stage trial, the companies said on Tuesday.

The result was considered a “statistically significant and clinically meaningful improvement,” the companies said.

Here’s hoping the anti-cancer vaccine works out better for everyone…especially the patients.

Can’t die from the cancer if the drugs kill you first.

Well, at least it will show their success rate numbers will be significant.

Anybody who takes any mRNA based therapy in the next 5-10 years is crazy.

    I couldn’t agree more strongly. I think the shining example of the dishonesty is the CDC stating the “vaccine” being safe for women who are pregnant or may become pregnant. Despite the fact no pregnant women were included in any of the drug safety trials. And now we’re seeing a spike in miscarriages and stillbirths.

    I remain proudly with flags flying un-*vaxxed*. I have an immune system thank you very much.

What pride of ownership can either company have in a dangerous, under-studied, non-cure?

    You haven’t heard? The pharmaceutical industry has plans to convert all existing vaccines from the traditional vaccine technology to the cutting edge mRNA technology and push it onto the public. And therein lies BILLIONS of dollars of revenue for whomever owns the patents on mRNA serum technology. (Won’t call it vaccine technology because it isn’t.) So Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech will be fighting tooth and nail for those patents despite the fact that mRNA serum technology is inherently unsafe and ineffective.

    As a person once in the House of Reps once said, “It’s all about the Benjamins.” Whomever owns the patents to mRNA technology stands to make BILLIONS. And that makes it worth the legal fight.

      “It’s all about the Benjamins.”

      It’s just a matter of time before Obama’s face will be on those and then people will say, “It’s all about the Baracks.”

      They will be used to buy fentanyl and more people will die from that than all the mRNA in the world.

    This is how the MASSIVE graft ladled out to the plague doctors gets laundered and returned to the political class.

The conventional wisdom in litigation is that both parties lose and only the lawyers win. For once, this is a good thing.

    companies this size have in-house council. They’re salaried, so a protracted legal battle doesn’t rack up the billable hours from people who don’t always have a cadre of lawyers on staff.

      Yeah, But Why? It honestly irks me that to operate in this country above a certain size y0u need in house counsel. I used to joke about how surprised I was there were still singe seat fighters.

      ‘where are the accountants and lawyers supposed to sit?

In a just world, every single one of these BIG PHARMA execs would be rotting in prison awaiting execution for their crimes against humanity. Every. Single. One.

After nearly three years of lies, obfuscation, propaganda, and other nonsense, you’d think more people would have a healthy skepticism regarding vaxxes and other medical “best practices.”

Speaking for myself, between the “covid” lies and the lies about saturated fat, low-fat dietary guidelines, cholesterol, etc, I am now a radical skeptic when it comes to conventional medicine.

Can they all lose?

I think the fair thing is to declare it a shared discovery and credit both companies – and then sue them into oblivion.

The mRNA vaccines work by inducing autoimmune response, that’s why the covid vaccines are causing heart failure and why they were never approved for use before covid. The test animals died at an alarming rate from autoimmune diseases.

Can you imagine a cancer drug working the same way? It would be a shit-show if every cell in your body had a cancer marker.

I’m also certain that they’re lying when they claim myocarditis from the covid vaccines is a problem only in the young. It’s total nonsense that these drugs would only cause this problem in the population most resistant to drug side effects. More likely myocarditis in older populations is being written off as an undiagnosed pre-existing condition. Easier to sell that lie in a 60 year old than a 20 year old.

Perdue was raked over the coals for all the poor research, sparse data, and underhanded marketing associated with their Oxycontin. But Perdue never had a government mandate compelling world-wide use of their product. Perdue was a bunch of incompetent pikers compared to what Pfizer and Moderna have going.

And they’re not about to give up that massive cash cow; no way, no how – not as long as we have profoundly stupid people in government, and a Gestapo Kadre of Karens for our neighbors.
