New Evidence for vaccination-autism link?

Infant Primates Given Vaccines On U.S. Children’s Immunization
Schedule Develop Behavioral Symptoms Of Autism

20 May 2008

A primate model for autism using the U.S. children’s immunization
schedule was unveiled at the International Meeting For Autism Research (IMFAR)
this weekend. The research underscores the critical need for studies into
vaccine safety and the immune and mitochondrial dysfunction of autistic
children. The National Autism Association (NAA) questions why the government
hasn’t undertaken these vital studies and why researchers have had to depend
on private money to perform this critical science that will surely
impact the health of millions of children worldwide.

While the authors and organizations associated with this study are withholding comment until p! ublication, University of Pittsburgh’s Dr. Laura Hewitson, Ph.D., described at the IMFAR meeting how vaccinated animals, when compared to unvaccinated animals, showed significant neurodevelopmental deficits and “significant associations between
specific aberrant social and non-social behaviors, isotope binding, and
vaccine exposure.”

Researchers also reported at the scientific meeting that “vaccinated animals exhibited progressively severe chronic active inflammation whereas unexposed animals did not” and found “many significant differences in the GI tissue gene expression profiles between vaccinated and unvaccinated animals.” Gastrointestinal issues are a common symptom of children with regressive autism.

NAA calls for the NIH to conduct large scale, non-epidemiological studies into the biomedical symptoms surrounding young children and all vaccines, including those containing the mercury-based preservative thimerosal and other additives like aluminum.

This request for further research echoes that of Dr. Bernadine Healy, Former NIH Director in a CBS interview earlier this week. “I think public health officials have been too quick to dismiss the hypothesis as ‘irrational,’ without sufficient studies of causation… without studying the population that got sick,” Healy said. “I have not seen major studies that focus on 300 kids who got autistic symptoms within a period of a few weeks of the
vaccines.”

Recently the government’s vaccine court conceded the case of Hannah Poling, admitting that vaccines triggered her regression into autism by exacerbating mitochondrial dysfunction. “The recent Poling case and this new research provide further evidence that the CDC has fallen down on their job to protect children from harm. The biomedical research to date suggests that parental reports of regression following vaccination is not only plausible, but likely in certain individuals,” said Scott Bono, NAA Chairman.
“To date, the CDC has conducted no safety testing on the possible harmfu! l
effects of simultaneously administering multiple vaccines to infants, and has
steadfastly refused to state a preference for mercury-free vaccines to be given to children and pregnant women. It’s time for HHS and Congress to step in and take vaccine safety away from the CDC.”

  1. A different cause of a different kind of autism is paternal age autism which used to be called early childhood schizophrenia.
    If you are interested in learning what causes non-familial autism I have collected research articles, and newspaper article on paternal age and vaccination as causes of different types of autism. Also when the mother had an older father she may carry a gene or genes which lead to autism such as Fragile X and tuberous sclerosis, etc.
