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 harmful 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."

On June 4th, parents of vaccine-injured children will rally for toxin-free immunizations in Washington, DC. For more information visit

    Geez, autism fear-mongering. Good fucking doorknob, I can't stand people who increase the likelihood of children getting infectious diseases through anti-vaccine fearmongering.

    For your information, Hewitson's research has not been peer-reviewed.

    And the thimerosal "links" to autism have been shot down LONG AGO.

    Oh, and until relatively recently, the American Psychiatric Association diagnosed what we now call Asperger’s as a mental health issue, schizoid disorder of childhood.

    Rediagnosing this as “Asperger’s” then misdiagnosing/overdiagnosing “Asperger’s” as full-spectrum autism likely accounts for much of the increase in autism diagnosis.

    Gafy you have got to be joking, I know of a lady who gave birth to a healthy happy baby boy. Upon receiving this first vaccination her baby fell asleep, and she couldn't wake him. She rushed him back to the doctors office, and they gave him another shot to wake the child.
    Ten years later the child has never been the same.

    How can you lump every human into one category?
    So do you not believe that there are chemically sensitive people?
    America does make mistakes have you not seen the recall on tomatoes & meat, ect......

    Do you know what type of chemicals are in your pillow at night? the mattress you sleep on, what about the cookware you use, food you eat, juice you drink, air you breath.

    I live in one of the richest countries with the best medical facilities yet I see many Americans riddled with cancer, cancer, caner or every type in every place.

    If you really wants to know the truth, it's out there. Have you've watched any of the Jenny McCarthy interviews you'd hear all of this. Kids used to get something like 6 or 7...now we're up to 30+ mandated vaccines!!! ...and we're sicker than ever.

    I'm not trying to convert people...just pass on information and let people decide on their own.

    BTW- Vaccines are not mandatory

    I think if they stopped using primates in research, we would be able to find cures for cancer and all these other diseases.
    We depend to much on these animal studies, and we are not getting anywhere.
