Spotlight: Hammond Report Exonerates IPAK Collaborator Dr. Paul Thomas, Finds “Rogue Medical Board” Tried to Coerce Unlawful Medical Practice


Independent journalist Jeremy Hammond has authored a definitive and thorough report that reveals that the Oregon Medical Board is guilty of wrong-doing because theytried to coerce Dr. Thomas into changing his lawful pediatric practice into an unlawful medical practice under Oregon’s state law. The 210-page report reads, in part “The real story here isn’t one of a rogue doctor dismissing science and recklessly endangering his pediatric patients by bullying their parents into accepting ‘alternative’ care. The real story is one of a rogue medical board dismissing science and recklessly endangering public health by encouraging pediatricians to bully their parents into strict compliance with the CDC’s schedule and selecting Paul Thomas, MD, to set an example to other physicians of what their punishment will be if they instead choose to respect parents’ right to informed consent.”

Under Oregon state law, phyisicians, including pediatricians, must provide for fully informed consent and respect vaccine refusal. The board had tried to sanction Dr. Thomas for allowing patients to use antibody titre-testing as evidence of immunity. It found that the board’s actions were “ludicrous given the fact that Oregon law only requires one dose of mumps vaccine, and it specifically allows for the use of antibody testing as evidence of immunity in lieu of evidence of vaccination.”

The report also completely rebuts all eight of the allegations of medical misconduct alleged by the Oregon Medical Board.  Under current Oregon law, The Board answers to the Governor of the State of Oregon.

The full report is available at Mr. Hammond’s independent journalism site. (

The medical board had suspended Dr. Thomas’ license after an emergency meeting was called following our publication of the analysis of data from over 3,300 patients in response to a request from the medical board for such data. See that peer-reviewed study here.  Phase II of the IPAK Vaxxed vs. Unvaxxed study is underway.  Donations are needed now.

The Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing Evaluation Consortium (NAATEC)


IPAK has formed, will collaborators, the The Nucleic Acid Amplification Testing Evaluation Consortium (NAATEC), an alliance created to conduct independent research on the accuracy of qRT-PCR tests used in the process of the diagnosis of COVID19.  This important project will research, among other issues, the false positive rates of PCR tests and provide an reliable and independent data upon which public health policies can be formed.

12/6/2020  IPAK Vaxxed vs. Unvaxxed Study

Thorough and careful analysis of 10.5 years of unvaccinated and variably vaccinated pediatric patients from a practice in Oregon has led to a peer-reviewed publication.

Importantly, the study results point to major differences in the health outcomes of vaccinated and the unvaccinated patients consistent with other independently conducted studies.

The article, entitled “Relative Incidence of Office Visits and Cumulative Rates of Billed Diagnoses Along the Axis of Vaccination” was reviewed by three anonymous reviewers selected by the journal.

“This study represents a major methodological leap forward in vaccine satety studies” says Dr. James Lyons-Weiler, who designed the study.  “The results show how often vaccinating patients have to seek medical care for conditions suspected by many as potential caused by vaccines.  Our measure, the Relative Incidence of Office Visits (RIOV), is sensitive to the severity of disease and disorder – specifically the disease burden.  While teasing out causality is difficult in observational studies, our use of natural internal positive and negative control conditions – fever, which is known to be caused by vaccines, and well-baby visits, which is not caused by vaccines – provide added assurance that we are seeing a likely causal signatures”.  We also have also performed subgroup analyses to consider the effects of age, gender and days of care.”

The study includes results of a simulation that demonstrates that RIOV is more powerful than odds ratios of diagnosis.  In fact, the incidence of a condition is equivalent to “one billed office visit per condition”, meaning past studies will likely have missed safety signals due to the method of data analysis chosen.  This study provides a measure that is more powerful, and has a larger dynamic range.  RIOV is more senstivity and clearly able to pick up safety signals missed by past studies that only looked at incidence,

The study was funded by donation from the public to IPAK, The Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge.

Phase 2 of this study will focus on additional analyses such as the relative risk of disease burden due to aluminum vs. non-aluminum vaccines, live attenuated virus vs. killed virus vaccines, and, at the recommendation of one anonymous reviewer, analyses designed to measure temporal association between specific vaccines and specific health outcomes.

The Institute for Pure and Applied Knowledge is a not-for-profit organization that exists to perform scientific research in the public interest. We use the principles and practices of scientific research to help individual researchers, research teams, consortia, and companies push their project through roadblocks, or map their way around them via evidence-based alternatives. We provide independent views and intellectual effort on scientific progress in three main areas:

  • Helping investigators in their efforts to reduce human pain & suffering through biomedical and related forms of scientific research.
  • Helping investigators increase their understanding of the universe using science as a way of knowing.
  • Educating the public in robust and reliable advances in medicine and science.

Our activities are varied, and include:

  • Conducting and publishing independent and objective nonpartisan analyses, studies, and research on legislative issues that impact public health and scientific progress in light of peer-reviewed and published scientific findings.
  • Providing support in many forms to endeavors that advance understanding via science (publications, consortia, conferences).
  • Providing support to progress in science in specific critical areas that are likely to reduce human pain and suffering – and we go the extra mile to help make those successes in translation happen.
  • Voicing informed opinions and issues on select government agency and court rulings, and actions and positions taken by other government agencies that influence healthcare practice and affect public health.
