[SaneVax: What happens when one group of monkeys is vaccinated following the immunization schedule recommended in 1994-99 and another group is left unvaccinated? A pilot study by University of Pittsburgh scientists indicated many of the vaccinated group developed autism-like reactions. Why have no further studies been conducted to confirm or disprove the findings of these scientists? That would be a good question to ask of FDA/CDC health authorities.]
Monkeys Get Autism-like Reactions to MMR & Other Vaccines In University of Pittsburgh Vaccine Study
By Catherine Frompovich, VacTruth.com
Someone did perform safety studies the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) should have mandated be performed and vetted BEFORE numerous vaccines were released into the public sector for mass vaccinations.
Lead investigator Laura Hewitson, PhD, probably dropped a bombshell when she and her colleagues completed a macaque monkey (primates) study of the very same vaccines given to children during 1994-1999, i.e., the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and several Thimerosal mercury-containing vaccines injected into children during that time frame when the autism spectrum disorder skyrocketed.
The results of that pilot study were published as a Research Paper in Acta Neurobiological Experimentals in 2010 and titled “Influence of pediatric vaccines on amydgala growth and opioid ligand binding in rhesus macaque infants: A pilot study.”  Even though there was alleged controversy revolving around Hewitson’s monkey studies, e.g., charges of conflicts of interest since she filed a claim with the vaccine court on behalf of her child,  the information generated needs to be revisited and duplicate studies need to be undertaken. Why haven’t they? Is there too much influence from vaccine makers not to do them? Parents need to make demands on the U.S. Congress to require such safety studies on monkeys be duplicated immediately, plus suspend all mandates on vaccinations until the study results are in. Did Dr Hewitson become another professional persona non-grata because she may have been on the right track?
Good article. I’ve always thought there was a link between vaccines and autism.
Autism Ireland says
Autism is a serious disease which is continuously growing not only in human beings. I am very much shocked to read the post that even animals are suffering from this disease. It is a critical condition. Researches should be done on this topic that how this disease can be cured in animals.
