In a letter to the FDA and CDC, he raised questions about the presence of DNA fragments and Simian Virus 40 (SV40) promoter/enhancer DNA in these vaccines. Dr Ladapo expressed worry that lipid nanoparticles used in vaccine delivery might efficiently transport contaminant DNA into human cells, posing potential risks such as DNA integration into human DNA.
