New Study Finds Lack of Association between MMR Vaccine and Autism
Results of a multi-center study of MMR vaccines and autism were released Sept. 3. The study (conducted by Harvard, Columbia, Mass General, CDC, and the American Academy of Pediatrics) is the first attempt to duplicate the original 1998 study by Dr. Wakefield, which raised questions about a link between the MMR vaccine and autism. The new study concludes that there is "strong evidence against an association of autism with persistent Measles Virus RNA in the GI tract or MMR vaccine exposure."
