[2014 April] Weekly Wrap: Yes, Vaccines Drive the Autism Epidemic By Dan Olmsted

Can Influenza Vaccines Cause Maternal Immune Activation Linked To Autism?

[2013 Jan] Vaccine Court Awards Millions to Two Children With Autism by David Kirby  Meanwhile, as HHS says it "has never concluded in any case that autism was caused by vaccination," it is still underwriting autism treatments such as ABA for children in its vaccine-injury program.

Tell Congress that Vaccine Court Has Ruled CA Boy has Autism from MMR   This isn't supposed to happen.    It happened again. The federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has awarded Ryan Mojabi and his family a multi-million dollar settlement for autism as the result of an injury from the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine.  Ryan’s family joins Hannah Poling and at least 85 others who have received judgments for vaccine-induced autism from the VICP. These people aren’t supposed to exist. We are told again and again that vaccines cannot cause autism, vaccines have never caused autism, and vaccines never will cause autism.  Except when they do.

[2012 Aug] Dad Pushing Autism Link Can Get More From CDC A federal judge found that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention excessively redacted information sought by a father trying to establish a link between mercury-based vaccines and autism. Brian Hooker says there is "a mounting body of compelling scientific literature" that shows a relationship between the mercury-based compound and autism, but that the CDC and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have consistently denied the link.

[2012 June] Brains Used to Study Autism are severely Damaged in Fridge Disaster by Christina England  before researchers and scientists even begin to study the brain tissue of autistic children they should all read the aforementioned papers and research. I am sure that they would learn far more reading these valuable studies and papers then they ever would studying the brain tissue of autistic children who have passed away. Perhaps they should spend less time in laboratories and more time working with autistic children who suffer from the condition on a day-to-day basis and listening to the parents who have to care for them.

[2011 Aug] Mercury link backs autism cause theory  A FAMILY history of mercury poisoning has emerged as a significant risk factor for developing autism, researchers say.

[2011 Aug] UK Guardian Newspaper Caught Falsifying the Historical Record of Vaccine-Caused-Autism  Whilst some other media outlets have adopted the approach of ignoring the evidence and writing and broadcasting one-sided reports, this time The Guardian newspaper has been caught changing it.  The Guardian removed the evidence – gone without a trace – from their online newspaper....British journalism at its finest and no Rupert Murdoch to blame it on.

[2011 May] Paul Offit Agrees that Vaccines Cause Autistic Spectrum Conditions By John Stone

[2011 May] Anti-Vaccine Proponents Claim Court Paid for Autism Cases  roughly 3% of vaccine injuries compensated by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) involve acknowledged brain damage that included autism. This rate of association is roughly triple that of the prevalence of autism among children, the authors write.

[vid] Autism, Vaccines, Mercury and the Culpability of the American Academy of Pediatrics  Dr. Kenneth Stoller, MD was trained as a pediatrician at UCLA and was a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics for two decades. In 2008 he resigned from the AAP after realizing that the AAP has known that mercury in vaccines can cause Autism and other neurological damage, yet the organization has refused to make a determined effort to have mercury (in thimerosal) removed from all vaccines. And in fact, has instead engaged in a cover-up to protect the interests of the vaccine makers and pharmaceutical empires.

[2011 May] High Rates of Autism Found in Federal Vaccine Injury Program: Study Says More Answers Needed by David Kirby

[2011 May] Investigators and Families of Vaccine-Injured Children to Unveil Report Detailing Clear Vaccine-Autism Link  The investigation found that a substantial number of children compensated for vaccine injury also have autism.  The government has asserted that it “does not track” autism among the vaccine-injured.  Based on this preliminary investigation, the evidence suggests that autism is at least three times more prevalent among vaccine-injured children than among children in the general population.

[2011 March] Vaccines and autism: a new scientific review  She discusses the increase in autism incidences corresponding with the introduction of human DNA to MMR vaccine, and suggests the two could be linked. Ratajczak also says an additional increased spike in autism occurred in 1995 when chicken pox vaccine was grown in human fetal tissue.

[2010 Feb] The Lancet Retraction Changes Nothing by David Kirby there are now at least six published legal or scientific cases of children regressing into ASD following vaccination - and many more will be revealed in due time......Another fact that gets little attention in this never-ending debate is that more than 1,300 cases of vaccine injuries have been paid out in vaccine court, in which the court ruled that childhood immunizations caused encephalopathy (brain disease), encephalitis (brain swelling) and/or seizure disorders. Encephalopathy/encephalitis is found in most if not all ASD cases, and seizure disorders in about a third of them.

MMR Vaccinations and Interferon-Gamma possible sequelae: neurologic and/or gastrointestinal by Teresa Binstock http://www.jorsm.com/~binstock/mmr-immu.htm

VACCINATION-INDUCED NEUROPATHIES Infection, Autoimmunity, and Autism by Teresa Binstock
http://www.jorsm.com/~binstock/vin.htm

Teresa Binstock, T. Hypothesis: Infection, antibiotics, vaccination-induced neuropathies: Mechanisms of pathogenesis in some cases of autism, ADHD, Tourette's, OCD, and other neurological disorders. Bit.listserv.autism January 3 1997.

.....ABSTRACT..... Cytokines are released in response to vaccination (i) as part of the processes by which vaccinations induce antibody formation, and (ii) as indicated by the occurrence of fever and, in many children, lethargic behavior. The cytokines so released are causally associated with two other processes: (i) edema within the cns, and (ii) clonal expansions of T-cell and B-cell subsets already activated by specific antigens from recent processes within the central nervous system (cns). Of significance to autism, OCD, Tourette's, ADHD, etc, is that some T-cells and B-cells in peripheral circulation may be encoded with neuron-derived epitopes (NdEs) subsequent to various infections and/or various treatments with antibiotics. In children having such NdE-encoded T-cells, B-cells, and antibodies, vaccination-induced clonal expansions of those T-cells and B-cells may, in some cases, initiate further neuronal damage. In other words, brain regions whose pre-vaccination neuronal damage had been relatively insignificant may, via vaccination-induced clonal expansions, suffer additional damage. The sequence is as follows: individuals primed with NdE-encoded immunological cells may, given cytokines-release induced by one or more vaccinations, experience clonal expansions of those T-cells and B-cells, which can re-cross the bbb into the brain and then induce additional damage, ie, resulting in vaccination-enhanced neuropathy presenting clinically as autism, tics, Tourette's syndrome, OCD, ADHD,

.....RATIONALE.....

1. In his book VACCINATION, SOCIAL VIOLENCE, AND CRIMINALITY, Harris Coulter makes an important observation: in many children, post-vaccination traits appear to be similar to those described as sequelae to various CNS infections (15). This paper's hypothesis presents molecular mechanisms that may account for the similarities in sequelae to various CNS infections and, in some children, to vaccinations.

2. Based upon the facts (i) that fever is a vaccination reaction experienced by many individuals (9), and (ii) that fever and edema are stimulated by similar cytokines (34, 43, 57), a subset of vaccinated children -- as a direct result of vaccination-induced cytokines release -- may be likely to experience both encephalitis and subsequent encephalopathy.

3. For instance, recent research findings are instructive regarding autistic children for whom -- as neonates, infants or toddlers -- medical records show a history of infections, antibiotic treatments, vaccinations, and temporally associated onset of autistic traits (eg, 3, 15).

4. As suggested by Coulter (15) a range of mild but significant post-vaccination neuropathies may occur, and the following rationale applies not only to autism but also to traits such as tics, ADHD, OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder), etc. A. Fever is strongly associated with interleukin-1, interleukin-6, and tumor necrosis factor alpha (IL-1, IL-2, TNF-alpha; ref 34). B. Brain inflammation is strongly associated with those same cytokines (6, 12).....

T Zecca, D Graffino, M Lania-Howarth, M Passante, J Oleske. NJMS, Children's Hospital of NJ, Newark, NJ Elevated Rubeola Titers in Autistic Children
The syndrome of autism is a clinical entity affecting 20 out of 10,000 children. We have evaluated the possible role of MMR in the pathogenesis of autism by comparing rubeola titers in autistic and normal children. Among 16 children diagnosed with autism followed in our clinical practice, we noted these children to have a 3 fold increase in their rubeola titers over expected normal range. A Wilcoxon Kruskal Wallis test comparing 13 rubeola titers from normal children reveals a statistically significant P-value of 0.0050. Subjectively, parents have stated that their children's developmental milestones deteriorated following MMR vaccination. Neurological sequelae following MMR are widely reported. MMR therefore may play a role in the pathogenesis of autism. The elevated titers of anti-measles antibodies in autistic children may signify a chronic activation of the immune system against this neurotropic virus.
