Thanks to Nurse Silvia Price, we now have the document that categorically sealed the future fate of the jetguns. Oddly, it still took a while longer to pry the jetguns from the cold dead hands of the US Military who insisted they were sterile under all conditions.
Those of you who are preparing to do battle with the VA would be advised to include this in the evidence submitted. VA insists that it was plausible. The wealth of the information we are finding indicates it was far more probable than plausible. In fact, we’ve gone to war over less “plausible” explanations.
4.2.2. Bovine immuno-assay testing
The Public Health Laboratory Service, UK, reported preliminary results from tests carried out during 1997 on the MEDEJET injector with the same nozzle as that implicated in the California outbreak. In this series of tests 200 injections were conducted on calves, each injection being followed by a series of shots into test tubes. Both the ejectate and the swabbed deposits on the injector head were collected separately. All samples were analysed using a bovine albumin immuno-assay developed for the study.
The results, which are to be published, showed systematic contamination of the ejectate, persisting after the first flushing shot. Moreover, the levels of contamination were consistently higher than those which could be explained by the contamination of the nozzle by contact with the calf skin during the injection. A hypothesis was therefore advanced, that the path of contamination may have been reflux within the jet stream. This could possibly have occurred at the end of the shot when the liquid pressure at the nozzle of the injector dies to a level lower than that of the liquid column within the skin and subcutaneous tissue of the animal.
Here’s the document. Download it and print it for submission in your claims. Don’t forget the other evidence you will find under Nexus Information in Blogs by Subject. The tide is turning in VA jetgun claims. That much is evident. Having the proper ammo to win with is as simple as submitting it along with a good nexus letter.
