These are the replies I received....
Wild West, Bruce Dozier "Jena-what is your connection to this, are you a DVM, concerned pet owner? Before we take any action, I need to know what your connection is?"
Valerie Goodwin - Adams Abaxis, Inc. Director, Marketing - Veterinary Medicine - "Please take us off of your emailing list." Abaxis published this article: The Sarcoma That Wasn't by Gary Norsworthy, DVM - owner of Alamo Feline Health Center, San Antonio, TX. http://www.alamofeline.com/
It is disturbing the complete apathy of these large veterinary conferences, but of course they are all sponsored by pharmaceutical companies.
Ethical conduct in science assures the reliability of research results and the safety of research subjects.
Ethics in science include:
a) standards of methods and process that address research design, procedures, data analysis, interpretation, and reporting; and
b) standards of topics and findings that address the use of human and animal subjects in research.
Replication, collaboration, and
c) peer review all help to minimize ethical breaches, and identify them when they do occur.

Vaccine Associated Sarcomas: Severe Misconceptions We Have Bought
Not only is the term VAS inappropriate, but the relationship of injection site sarcomas to adjuvanted vaccines is often severely distorted. Dr. Norsworthy will show data from the literature and from his patients to help you see this problem from a different perspective.
Western Veterinary Conference http://www.wvc.org/
February 17-21, 2013
Las Vegas, Nevada
Sponsored by: BOEHRINGER INGELHEIM VETMEDICA
Infectious Disease Symposium: This lecture will trace the beginnings of the concept that "Vaccine Associated Sarcomas," a misnomer, are caused exclusively by vaccines and that adjuvanted vaccines are the real culprit. It will show, through the literature, that they are really a happening in rare, genetically-prone cats that are likely to have an aberrant reaction to many injectable products. Dr. Norsworthy will conclude by revealing 10 year statistics from his feline-only practice. Part 3 of 4.
