The US is increasing its supply of medications used to treat injuries that accompany acute radiation syndrome. This may be an indicator of a looming danger.
The Biden regime announced its plan on Wednesday to spend $290 million on Amgen drug Nplate for “radiological and nuclear emergencies.”
“As part of long-standing, ongoing efforts to be better prepared to save lives following radiological and nuclear emergencies, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is purchasing a supply of the drug Nplate from Amgen USA Inc; Nplate is approved to treat blood cell injuries that accompany acute radiation syndrome in adult and pediatric patients (ARS),” according to the news release.
“ARS, also known as radiation sickness, occurs when a person’s entire body is exposed to a high dose of penetrating radiation, reaching internal organs in a matter of seconds,” HHS said in the release. “Symptoms of ARS injuries include impaired blood clotting as a result of low platelet counts, which can lead to uncontrolled and life-threatening bleeding.”
Survival is extremely unlikely depending on the syndrome, according to CDC.
Amgen, based in Thousands Oaks, California, developed Nplate for ARS with support from BARDA, part of HHS’s Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response (ASPR), and the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
The 2004 Project Bioshield Act gives BARDA the authority to purchase this medication supply, and the $290 million in funding comes from the Project BioShield fund.
Nplate is a treatment for low platelet counts in adults and children with immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) when other treatments or medicines have not worked well enough.
“To reduce radiation-induced bleeding, Nplate stimulates the body’s production of platelets. The drug can be used to treat adults and children,” HHS said.
According to Nplate.com, “Nplate is not for use in people with a precancerous condition called myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), or low platelet count caused by any condition other than immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). Nplate is only used if your low platelet count and medical condition increase your risk of bleeding.”
Nplate can cause serious side effects, including:
- Worsening of a precancerous blood condition to a blood cancer (leukemia): Nplate® is not for use in people with a precancerous condition called myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), or for any condition other than immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). If you have MDS and receive Nplate®, your MDS condition may worsen and become an acute leukemia. If MDS worsens to become acute leukemia you may die sooner from the acute leukemia.
- Higher risk for blood clots:
- You may have a higher risk of getting a blood clot if your platelet count becomes high during treatment with Nplate®. You may have severe complications or die from some forms of blood clots, such as clots that spread to the lungs or that cause heart attacks or strokes.
- If you have a chronic liver disease, you may get blood clots in the veins of your liver. This may affect your liver function.
The HHS did not elaborate on the motivations behind the stockpile of Nplate, although it does coincide with rising tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
Recall, Retired Virginia State Senator and former Marine Helicopter Pilot, career JAG Officer and Chief of the Army Criminal Law Division, Col. Richard Black, (USA Ret.) told the Gateway Pundit that the “globalists are marching us relentlessly toward this nuclear armageddon.”
Retired Col. Richard Black drafted an open letter to members of US Congress on the horrors of nuclear Armageddon being pushed by the globalists in response to Russian actions in Ukraine.
“I am troubled by the loose talk about launching a nuclear attack on Russia. From time to time, senior Republicans and Democrats have suggested employing such weapons. This appears to be a deliberate effort to acclimate Americans to the idea of nuclear war,” Black wrote on the letter.
“Now, we have Zelensky’s office jumping on too. On September 21, 2022, Newsweek ran this headline: U.S. Needs to Threaten Russia With Nuclear Strike: Ukraine. The article quotes Mykhailo Podolyak, Zelensky’s senior aide, as saying, “The other nuclear states need to say very firmly that as soon as Russia even thinks of carrying out nuclear strikes on foreign territory – in this case, the territory of Ukraine – there will be swift retaliatory nuclear strikes to destroy the nuclear launch sites in Russia.
“Of course, it is impossible to limit retaliatory nuclear strikes to destroying only the nuclear launch sites. Not only would the damage be widespread, but Russia would be forced to respond in kind to threats targeting its nuclear deterrence capability. Russia would launch an immediate, massive nuclear response, including air and ground-based hypersonic missiles and submarine-launched ballistic missiles.
“As the Ukrainian War drags on, globalists are marching us relentlessly toward this nuclear Armageddon. Why?”
President Trump also shared last week his concerns about a potential nuclear war which is keeping him up at night.
The world is a very dangerous place due to the actions and failed leadership of the Biden regime.
