BREAKING: After uncovering gross incompetence (or negligence) at the TGA @SenatorRennick asked them what they did about the clearly contaminated batches.

Their response:
"We didn't see any problems"
#humpgate #TGAgate
The response confirms that the TGA were not competent to assess this product, given that the EMA identified the contamination.

Full thread below:

This response was completely disingenuous because you cannot find a protein that you are not looking for.

Without mRNA sequencing (which they didn't do) they would have no idea what protein to look for.

Protein sequencing is complex, but they didn't do that either.

1⃣ We found the humps.
2⃣ the EMA knew about them
3⃣ the analysis appears to be synthetic

@chrismartenson @stkirsch @Daoyu15 @Kevin_McKernan
Just a reminder that these are the same humps that we found in the TGA batch analyses here

They are contaminants at 3000nt and 2000nt length. The main mRNA should be about 4000nt length.
The EMA knew about these humps because they had them analysed. But only to a point.

Not only did they ONLY perform on analysis on the assumption of what they THOUGHT was in the product, but they accepted what now appear to be synthetic Western blots as evidence.
