Is Alarming Rise in Autism Linked to 1988 Event?

Story at-a-glance -

  • The first conjugate vaccine, against Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), was approved for use in the U.S. in 1988, which coincides with a marked increase in reported prevalence of autism spectrum disorders among American children
  • Researchers hypothesize that the Hib vaccine may be in part responsible for this rise in autism, as conjugate vaccines appear to have a profound impact on neural development. These vaccines “fundamentally change the manner in which the immune systems of infants and young children function,” the authors of a recent study say
  • According to Barbara Loe Fisher with the NVIC, the “one cause” hypothesis, while convenient, is unlikely to solve the autism problem and may even be counterproductive, as vaccine injury and death can be induced by a number of co-factors, including age, health status, family history, and types and numbers of vaccines given in combination, just to name a few
