Autism and Vaccination: The Real Story
  • Richard B. Philp, University of Western Ontario
Public perception has linked the onset of signs and symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) to childhood vacciniation, mainly with the measles-mumps-rubella vavine (MMR). This perception has been reinforced by the very public statements of some celebrities. Numerous clinical studies have failed to show any evidence of such an association and one study that initiallty raised the question has been retracted. This evidence is reviewed and discussed.
