Multiple Vaccinations and the Enigma of Vaccine Injury
Published: 2020
SYNOPSIS

The increasing rates of allergy, ear infections, and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) in countries with high rates of vaccination could be related to mass vaccination and to its impact on liver function and vitamin A metabolism.

CITATION

Mawson, A.R.; Croft, A.M. Multiple Vaccinations and the Enigma of Vaccine Injury. Vaccines 2020, 8, 676.

SUMMARY

Mawson and Croft have written a comprehensive review article in the journal Vaccines and have investigated the role of multiple vaccinations in long term health effects include neurodevelopmental disorders, allergies, infections and neuropsychiatric disorders.  Past research on vaccine adverse events highlighted in the paper includes multiple childhood vaccines as well as multiple vaccines given to military personnel during the Gulf war.   Mawson and Croft hypothesize that multiple vaccines trigger the retinoid cascade which initiates apoptotic hepatitis that releases stored vitamin A compounds into circulation in toxic concentrations.  Further, the authors link vitamin A toxicity to multiple adverse events following vaccination.

This review article is a very important contribution to the science around vaccine injury, especially injuries following multiple vaccinations which given the bloated CDC infant vaccination schedule is the rule and not the exception.  Mawson has previously completed his own study of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children where he found relationships between vaccination status and multiple sequelae including allergic rhinitis, eczema, otitis media, pneumonia and neurodevelopmental disorders (Mawson et al. 2017, J Transl Sci).

Vaccination and autoimmune diseases: is prevention of adverse health effects on the horizon?
Published: 2017
SYNOPSIS

A number of factors can predispose susceptible individuals to autoimmune reactions following vaccination.

CITATION

Vadalà M, Poddighe D, Laurino C, Palmieri B. European Association for Predictive Preventive & Personalized Medicine Journal. 2017;8(3):295-311.

SUMMARY

This review discusses possible underlying mechanisms of autoimmune reactions following vaccinations and cases of autoimmune diseases that have been correlated with vaccination. Molecular mimicry and bystander activation are possible mechanisms by which vaccines can cause autoimmune reactions. The individuals who might be susceptible to develop these reactions could be those with previous post-vaccination phenomena, those with allergies, individuals who are prone to develop autoimmune diseases (such as those with a family history of autoimmunity or with known autoantibodies) and genetically predisposed individuals.

Predicting post-vaccination autoimmunity: who might be at risk?
Published: 2015
SYNOPSIS

Some individuals are at risk of developing autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA).

CITATION

Soriano A, Nesher G, Shoenfeld Y. Pharmacological Research, 2015;92:18-22. Epub 2014 Sep 30.

SUMMARY

It has been postulated that autoimmunity could be triggered or enhanced by a vaccine’s immunogen contents, as well as by adjuvants, which are used to increase the immune reaction to the immunogen. Fortunately, vaccination-related ASIA (autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants) is uncommon. Yet, by defining individuals at risk, it may be possible to further limit the number of individuals developing post-vaccination ASIA.

Allergic disease and atopic sensitization in children in relation to measles vaccination and measles infection
Published: 2009
SYNOPSIS

Swedish researchers found that children who had natural measles infection had much lower rates of allergy than children vaccinated against measles.

CITATION

Rosenlund H, Bergstrom A, Alm JS, … PARSIFAL Study Group. Pediatrics. 2009;123(3):771-778.

SUMMARY

In these analyses, measles infection [natural measles] was inversely associated with any allergic symptom or physician’s diagnosis of allergy, suggesting that natural measles infection may protect against allergies in children.

Effects of Diphtheria-Tetanus-Pertussis or Tetanus Vaccination on Allergies and Allergy-Related Respiratory Symptoms Among Children and Adolescents in the United States
Published: 2000
SYNOPSIS

UCLA researchers find the DTP vaccine is causing asthma.

CITATION

Eric L. Hurwitz, DC, PhD, and Hal Morgenstern, PhD. Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, Volume 23, Number 2, February 2000.

SUMMARY

“Asthma and other allergic hypersensitivity reactions and related symptoms may be caused, in part, by the delayed effects of DTP or tetanus vaccination. Because the proportion of US children who have received at least 1 dose of DTP vaccine approaches 100%, the number of allergies and allergy-related conditions attributable to DTP or tetanus vaccination in the United States may be very high. For example, assuming that the estimated vaccination effect is unbiased, 50% of diagnosed asthma cases (2.93 million) in US children and adolescents would be prevented if the DTP or tetanus vaccination was not administered.”
