I have always treated my son, who has Asperger's, the same as my 4 other children. I haven't done any intervention with him, he is mainstreamed in school, and today at 11-almost 12- years old he is quite social. They don't always want to hang with adults, and you needn't worry about pedophiles persay with them because they have a greater understanding of that stuff. Children with Asperger's always say what they mean, when they want to. If anyone would try to hurt my son in that way, I have no hesitation to say that my son out of all 5 of my children would be the most outspoken about it. Children with Asperger's are of greater intelligence and intellect. My son is thriving and i'm very proud of it. Yesterday he went to his first dance and even danced at it. Don't sell these kids short...I believe they know and understand life better than any of us could ever imagine!

I think thats awesome .i agree kids with disorders are kids ..and should not be treated any other way ..and yes i believe kids with autism have a keener yet less complex view of reality and by less complex I mean they simplify it ..lol

You are thinking of children with autism on the other end of the spectrum. Children with Asperger's are outspoken children and "matter of fact" kind of children.

You are misunderstanding what I said.

I said the MMR caused a milk allergy..................12 months old no milk allergy..............he went in for the shots and within a week after had the allergy...........He was taken off milk and the symptoms went away.........later I will find some literature that describe the symptoms I am speaking of that went away when we took him off milk.............I never said he developed Aspergers........some of the symptoms, such as arching his back and attempting to scoot backwards with his head on the floor and moving his neck and head in odd positions were similar to signs described as beginning signs of Aspergers.........At the time of these symptoms I looked up Autism and found the part about moving his neck in odd positions and the floor moving backward movement as also to be tied to Aspergers.

I am not a Doctor and don't claim to be, just telling you what happened to my grandson when he took the MMR innoculation. His legs and arms are still to this day always covered with the exema that he did not have before the shots.............
What a long strange trip it's been..............

You misinterpreted what I am saying...I am telling you those are NOT symptoms of Asperger's. I don't know what you looked up but those are NOT symptoms. Please post a link of what you found that says that. I have a son with Asperger's and those are definitely NOT any signs of Asperger's, not at all.

The shots gave him a milk allergy an excema, Okay?

At the time the symptoms I described matched symptoms I found somewhere on the net.

He doesn't and didn't have Aspergers...........and all the symptoms are not the same for everyone, the odd movements of his neck and head were what most concerned me and matched what I found on the net.

I am not going to use my time tonight to try to prove something I read a year and a half ago.

My point had to do with the MMR and milk allergy and excema.............

I am done here..................

Pt lost eye contact, he appeared to have lost his hearing. He began to walk in circles bucking his head up and down making strange noises. He discontinued his "babbling" and he started hitting himself in the head, banging his head on the floor or wall and flapping his hands.60 day follow-up dated 11/01/00 provided no additional data.

Within one minute post vax, the pt turned pale and fell forward. She then passed out completely with dilated pupils and stiffening of limbs as though going into a seizure. This lasted no more than 20-30 seconds. She then regained consciousness, remained pale and nauseous. When the pt fell forward she banged her head on the edge of the table; now swollen area between her eyes.

Approximately 2 days post vax, this pt cried hysterically for approximately 2 days. He was seen by doctors who said he "was fine." The reporter stated that he "was not fine because he was losing his balance a lot and banging his head on the floor. They examined him and said he was fine. As the weeks continued all these behaviors continued." The reporter stated that she took him to a neurologist who dxed him as PDD/Autism. The neurologist suggested that the pt be put in a program for these types of conditions. The reporter stated "my son was fine before he took this vax." She also reported that the pt was seen by an allergist who did a blood test and the "MMR came out with a positive reaction." The reporter stated, "My son is allergic to the vax" and the allergist confirmed that he is allergic to MMR." The reporter also stated that the doctor gave her a letter stating that her son should not received the vax again. "He is improving with the program. He still loses his balance but it was worse before, his speech is okay and his hearing is fine." The reporter consulted another physician and told that the child would always have PPD/Autism. The reporter wanted "people to know that the vax could cause this." She also stated that her son cried hysterically for 4-6 months and could not stop. Upon medical review this is considered to be an "other medical event." FU indicates diagnosis to be autism.


The pt experienced 3 weeks of sleep disturbance, loose BM's, head banging, tossing and turning and restlessness following vaccination.

said her eyes looked fine. She rubs her head and sometimes bangs her forehead on our coffee table or doors or walls.

Information has been received from a lawyer concerning an approx. 2 year old male who on 5/5/92 was vaccinated with MMRII and subsequently, experienced autism, autistic spectrum disorder, severe communication disorder, hyperactivity, sleep disturbance, grand mal convulsion, severe speech deterioration and lack of sense of danger. He presented with delayed speech at the age of 3 years and 3 months. The pt's developmental milestones were slightly delayed. He said his first words at 7 months but did not say any more words until he was 2 1/2 years old. He had 1 hospitalization for a possible convulsion. On exam, he was a healthy male with very poor eye contact, cardiovascular, respiratory and abdominal exams were all normal, both testes were palpable in the scrotum but small. Central nervous system exam revealed generalized hypotonia but reflexes were all present and plantars were flexor. On 12/18/98 he was examined by a pediatrician who said he had major problems with going to sleep and staying asleep. He had to sleep in his mother's bed. He had problems staying in his seat when his mother was taking him in the car and he had some temper tantrums at school. He continued to have problems with receptive language. The diagnoses were autistic spectrum disorder and developmental delay. The autism, aphasia, cognitive disturbance, developmental delay, grand mal convulsion, and speech disorder were considered "significant medical events". At the time of the report, the pt had not recovered from autism and possible autistic spectrum disorder and primary language disorder. Follow-up information indicated that on the day of vaccination 05/05/1992, the pt developed a temperature and during the month of May 1992 he had a loss of awareness, was distant and "stopped responding." In June 1992, the pt developed "sticky eyes" and conjunctivitis and in July 1992, he developed head banging and "spots with capillary flare on his right wrist, left forearm and on the face. In October 1992, the pt had a cold which lasted for 3 weeks. In No

It was further reported that immediately following the vaccination with a dose of MMR, the patient started to cry and an indent appeared in her leg straight away at the injection site. It was also noted that within approximately 7 days, the patient allegedly developed a high temp until approximately 2 weeks after vaccination with a dose of MMR, when the temp came down. It was reported that after this period of illness the patient had become extremely withdrawn and quiet. It was noted that the patient's behavior deteriorated, her eye contact disappeared and she would engage in strange behavior, for example hand flapping. The patient allegedly started having temper tantrums and banging her head and her bowel movements deteriorated as she would find it difficult to go to the toilet.

It was noted that the patient never liked crowds and cried for no reason. The patient was breast fed until 10 months. There were no feeding problems and sitting up, crawling, walking were all within normal limits. It was reported the patient began babbling at eight months and said a few words. It was noted at thirteen months she became very silent and began to play on her own with her toys. It was reported that at eighteen months, the mother was concerned as she did not start talking and was seen by the therapist who felt that the child was probably autistic, due to her mannerisms. Assessment of the patient's hearing seemed to indicate normal levels and a profound hearing lo

It is reported by the pt's mother stating that she noticed mild neurological change during the course of his immunization schedule from 1992 to 1997. After each course of vaccines he reacted with swollen shot sight fever screaming and 10 to 15 days later high fever hives malice. In 1994, he was placed in special pre-ed at 3-, 1/2 yrs for speech and motor skill delays. She noticed a decline in health speech motor skills after every immunization visit. It wasn't until his big 5 year old prekindergarten mega dose DPT, Pollomeyelitis, and MMR that she connected his decline with vaccinations. After the last round of vaccines he was never the same. The day of the vaccination on 05/28/1997 within six hours red hot swollen shot site: Given both in left and right arm, glassed look, fever, arms to sore to lift six days of fever, malice, glass look lethargic.

F/U states it is noted that Asperger's syndrome was dx'd by a educational psychologist on 1/16/98. During an exam on 3/2/98, the parents reported that the pt was unable to get through to. During the exam on 4/8/98, these episodes were also described as "staring into space". It was noted that on 1/10/97, the child received a 2nd dose of MMRII (batch HB55510; lot 617788/1255B). Diarrhea, recurrent upper respiratory infections, paleness, tiredness, clumsy, slight hearing loss on the right, recurrent bouts of acute otitis media and excessive eating and drinking were considered to be incidental findings. Upon internal review, Asperger's Syndrome and possible seizures were considered "Other Important Medical Events".

Eight hours after Fluzone, was having a disagreement with husband, out of the ordinary, throwing things, banging hands on table, driving away without shoes, some events she did not remember doing.

Follow-up information has been received from a foreign legal firm concerning a 14 month old male who on 1/5/94, was vaccinated with MMRII (batch 815000). It is alleged that the pt suffers from Myoclonic Epilepsy. On 1/13/94, the pt started experiencing "starring attacks". These attacks would last for 2 to 3 minutes. The pt's head would fall forward and his arms would jerk. Afterwards, he would sleep for around 3 hours. On 1/16/94, 3 days after the initial seizure, the pt was experiencing up to 8 seizures per day. Also noted on 1/16/94, the pt began to lose any speech he had developed prior to the vaccination. Within about 2 months, post vax, approx. 3/94, the pt's mother noted that he began to injure himself and started head banging behavior. He would hit his head repeatedly on the wall, hit the right-handed side of his head with his hand and bite his arms. In 9/94, the pt was noted to have lost his coordination and he developed an extreme dislike of being touched and an extreme sensitivity to noise. Also, at this time, his play became solitary, he lost his social skills and developed a fear of strangers. He also developed aggressive and spiteful behavior and lost his ability to concentrate and to maintain eye contact. His mother also noted that he became hyperactive. In approx. 6/94, (5 to 6 months, post vax) the pt began to suffer from constipation with occasional bloody stools. He would scream from the abdominal pain experienced while passing the bloody stools. The pt continues to suffer from constipation, however, the bloody stools have resolved. In 7/95, the pt was dx'd as having myoclonic epilepsy. Upon internal review, Myoclonic Epilepsy was considered an "Other Important Medical Event". No further information is available. Follow up information was received in the form of a consulation note dated 9/20/94. At the time of the visist, 9/8/94, the patient was 21 months old. His mother and maternal grandmother attended the session with him. A birth history was given by the mother who reported that ethe patient

The pt developed regression, high pitch screaming, eye rolling, head banging 3 months after MMR vaccination. Diagnosed with autism.

We noticed him spinning around, pacing back and forth and banging his head. There was no treatment given. It was recommended that he continue to receive vaccines (that contain thimerosal); (He now has autism). He is dx'd with mercury poisoning. Annual follow up states pt has not recovered. he still has autism and high mercury levels in his system.

Initially, extreme sleepiness with high fever, then high-pitched screams and later abnormal behavior such as head banging, hand flapping, not responding to his name, loss of speech and playing in closets. PDD dx'd by developmental pediatrician at 2 1/2 years old (5/30/00). Heavy metal urine analysis reports indicate severe mercury poisoning, 1st report on 3/23/01.

Fever after vaccinations; up screaming all night. Stopped talking and became mute was speaking at least 20 words and lost all of them. He started biting his hands and banging his head, spinning and wanting to be by himself. Autism was also dx'd with pervasive developmental disorder.

Information has been received from a mother concerning her 17 month old male son with breathing problems, an allergy to cefadroxil (DURICEF) and a history of pneumonia respiratory syncytial viral at birth and inguinal hernia repair (01 FEB 2002) who on 12/16/98 was vaccinated with a dose of MMR vaccine live. In approximately December 1998, the patient experienced symptoms of banging head on floor, hitting his face and was diagnosed with autism. The mother reported that 2 other siblings received MMRII (exact dates unknow) without adverse symptoms. Upon internal review, autism was considered an other medical event. *Follow-up report on 7/29/02: Follow-up info. has been received from an MD's assistant (PA). The PA reported that on 12/16/98, the same day as the vax, the PT was referred to a developmental center due to behavioral concerns of increased temper tantrums. At the developmental center, the PT was diagnosed with developmental delay and a speech delay. The PT attended a regular school and has attended kindergarten. The PA reported that the PT was doing well and the only extra services that he has received was occupational therapy. Upon internal review, the PT's developmental delay was considered an other important medical event.* Additional information has been requested. The mother also reported that her other son also developed autism at 3 years old after vaccination with MMR.

Autism/encephalopathy. Starting only since vaccine. Severe rash. Dx given by MD. Follow up states pt did not recover. Encephalopathy, autism. Large gross delays in language, auditory processing, social interaction, immunological development, G I absorption. Also very strange behaviors that are involuntary (such as banging head) occur virtually constantly. Pt may not have been a good candidate for 3 vaccines to be given at one time because he might've had a poorly developed immune system and may have been fighting an earlier infection.

Two days after immunizations, child started with staring spells followed by screaming, hair pulling and head banging. The episode was daily at first and quite severe. The episode don't occur every day now. But they can happen any time on any day. The severe episodes usually end with crying spell that last for about an hour.

There was no concomitant medication. *The PT's mother reported that her daughter progressed typically w/out any prob's, "achieving all her milestones, sitting, crawling, walking, etc, early," The PT was breast fed until approx 13 mts of age, and was reportedly always of good health and weight. The mother described photos that "show her getting ready for her one yr b-day party, wearing a ballerina tutu w/lots of netting and rollers in her hair... in the photos she is smiling and twirling for us. She did not have sensory issues at all at that point." The info received on 12/9/02 reported that "of course now, she will not allow anything to be placed in her hair or anything but very soft cotton to touch her skin." The mother reported that she can not say when her daughter began to regress as it was a slow but steady process. From photos, the mother reportedly saw a "difference in eye contact and in her presence in Christmas Eve pic of 98." The PT had a very bad cold then and reportedly did not seem to be herself. She was described as "withdrawn and not playful or excited for X-mas." The PT's mother assumed that it was due to her sickness. In pictures from Spring 99, the mother described her daughter covering her ears. The PT's mother also noticed a mispronunciation of words. The PT's mother also reported SXs of w/drawal and lack of eye contact, difficulty sleeping, and self injurious behaviors, "(head banging, throwing herself down in tantrums if her blocks would not balance, etc) grew from there".* It was reported that at the age of 32 months, the child's speech has regressed, and the child was not doing well in social situations.

Information has been received from a consumer, who is also a medical student, concerning her healthy 12 month old son who on 2/23/01 was vaccinated with a dose of MMR (lot # not reported). The mother reported that immediately after vaccination the patient became very lethargic and slept extreme amounts of time for two days. He regressed developmentally.

He did not want to be touched. He started banging his head against things until he was bruised. The mother reported that for four months his doctor said he was having tantrums. The mother reported that pediatric neurologists diagnosed him as having autistic spectrum and pervasive developmental delay. The mother reported that the patient that the patient has come a long way, but still has some component of the reported diagnosis. The patient has received early intervention of thirty hours per week. Upon internal review, autistic spectrum and pervasive developmental delay were determined to be other important medical evens (OMIC). Additional information has been requested.

Patient was given 1 DTap, 1 IPV, 1 Hepatitis B, and 1 MMR at about 5:15 PM. Father had denied any illness in the last 24 - 48 hours, or any reaction to previous vaccination. His English was broken and understanding minimal. Family had just arrived in this country on 12/01/04. Patient tolerated the vaccination well, did not cry or resist, was quiet. After the shots, she sat on her dad's lap back in the waiting area. The sponsor came over to me to tell me that she was nauseated. I brough the safety bag and smelling slats with me to the child. Patient was pale and vomited a small amount of phlegm. RN came over to assist, and we decided to have her carried over to the corner to lie down on the floor. BP 64/40, P 44. She fainted. I called 911 at~5:26 pm while smelling salts were used. She aroused ar ~5:27 pm. P was 60. At 5:30 pm BP 94/60, pulse 60. Bangs ambulance arrived at ~5:33 pm. Child evaluated, given 02 by Bangs. Responsive. Meanwhile an interpreter arrived and we determined that the child was in no pain but was scared. Child had not eaten since 1 pm. She sat up on her dad's lap and drank one whole glass of orange juice, didn't vomit or get nauseated from it. Dad states that she has been extra sleepy in the last few days. Bangs crew thought that child did not need transport to ED, but Dad concerned, so Bangs took her to the hospital ED with dad and interpreter. She was seen at ED for syncopal episode and released.

Developed normally up to age one. Received MMR shot and over the next two weeks he stopped saying words, became withdrawn, started to bang his head.

My son has been diagnosed by Developmental Pediatrician with PDD NOS. Per follow up report-Onset 12/02 is when we noticed a change in child's behavior and decreased language he has not recovered from this, although he is in a preschool where is using sign language and has stopped banging his head, because he is less frustrated, as he uses some words and signs. Parents planning on having a mercury testing done. At this time they believe he has a vaccine injury, also their 2yr old son showing the same symptoms.

High fever for 3 days; deep sleep immediately after shot; high pitched cry in night; fast heartbeat; paleness; jerking movement; weakness; severe allergies; diarrhea; head banging; hand flopping; anemia; loss of eye contact; change in eating habits; gave Tylenol; washed down with cool washcloth; nursed; bowel problems; encephalitis; hyperactive ADHD; autism; language delay; speech delay.

Within a few of days of vaccine administration, the child became almost unmanageable. He lost the little speech he had acquired. He proceeded to head bang and would scream incosolably. He, also, seemed unaware of his surroundings. He started to have an aversion to loud noises and did not like clothes to touch his skin. The child has since had social difficulties. No official dx at this time but per a Psychiatrist, he "fits" the criteria for ADHD, Mood disorder and Asperger's syndrome. Medical Records received which stated anger and depression. Dis Sum rec'd 10/21/2005, box 7 complete.

My son was born on 1/27/02. While in delivery, doctor said I needed penicillin for Strep medicine was given 2 hours before delivery. After he was born 24 hours later, he was put in NICU unit for infection which he never had given medication Gentamycin/Ampicillin. Shortly after his stay at hospital, he was vaccinated at private physician for his routine Hep B; was given on 2/8/02 and according to my notes, might have received another dose at hospital. Shortly after this vaccine was given, we had taken him to health clinic because our insurance did not pay for visit and had his other vaccine given at clinic which at every visit and was told his head was to big, but not told that he might have another condition. My son kept having reaction of being to hot; put on fever next 7 months; was not tolerating formula, diarrhea, was sick. 18 months ear infection, eyes rolled behind his head after vaccination Hep B #3 12/4/02.3/2/06 Discharge summary received which revealed Dx: Sepsis w/elevated WBC & + blood cultures. 3/20/06 Received medical records from Dr. Goyal which revealed: maternal infection at birth, 2 wks preemie.

By the end of aprox. 2 weeks after the shots, my son had stopped all communication, social skills, physical skills & developed abusive, personally harmful behavioral problems. All he did was cry as if getting sick & squeal to show the need for things or excitement. He started toe walking, head banging, biting, uncontrollable compulsive behavior & sensory problems, (too many to list). He was later diagnosed with AUTISM. 2/27/06Records received from Dr. Shapiro, dev delay ped, which revealed recurrent ear infections, maternal medication, bleeding & injury during pregnancy which resulted in preterm labor.

5 days after vaccine, his belly became distended and he couldn't bend over. He began to have chronic diarrhea, rhinitis, sleep problems, chewing problems, moodiness, and wanted to be carried non-stop. 10 days after the vaccine, he slept for 40 out of 48 hours. After that, he started to lose speech, the desire to eat, the ability to sleep. He stopped reacting to his name and couldn't play with toys. He began to toe walk, hand flap, and head bang. 6 weeks after the vaccine he received antibiotics which left him in a severely autistic state. We put him on a gluten free, casein free diet which helped. We treated his candida overgrowth and began supplementing with nutrients. We are currently chelating him to remove heavy metals. 5/4/06 Received medical records from provider which reveal patient experienced normal development as of day of vax. However, he was referred on that visit for OT & echocardiogram for 2/6 murmur (WNL). Patient with frequent otitis media, runny nose & diarrhea. Labs pointed to diet high in protein. Parents refused further vaccination. 6/19/06 Received medical records from diagnosing/treating physician which revealed patient experienced excessive thirst & hunger, speech delay, eczema, allergic shiners.

Documentation includes expressive language delay and referral to language delay program. Spoke with Patricia Clarke at Pediatric Group and she will fax additional office notes for visits prior to vaccine administered on 9/23/04, this is the vaccination date that the reporter/mother associates with her child's autistic symptoms. 07/03/06-records from Pediatric Group for DOS 9/23/04-document expressive language delay. no additional records forthcoming.

Information has been received from a health professional concerning her 12 month old son, with no medical history and no allergies, who on 3/15/2005 was vaccinated with a dose of varicella virus vaccine live (lot 647536/0825P). Concomitant vaccine administered on the same day included a dose of measles mumps rubella vaccine (lot 648606/0558P). The next day, on 3/16/2005 the patient experienced a fever. One week later, on approximately 3/22/2005, the patient developed diarrhea, his speech decreased, he became sensitive to foods, did not respond to people, and began banging his head and arching his back. The patient had been treated by a nutritionist and many other medical specialists (unspecified). He had been treated with pancreatic enzymes, bacteria for his gut, and holistic vitamins. Diagnostic studies were performed (no results provided). An endoscopy and colonoscopy were planned. It was reported that the patient had been to the emergency room several times. At the time of the report the patient had not recovered. No product quality complaint was involved. The patients reaction was considered to be immediately life threatening, disabling, and an other important medical event by the reporter (OMIC). Additional information has been requested. A lot check has been requested. The records of testing prior to release of this lot have been checked and found to be satisfactory. The lot complies with the standards and was released.

Seizure like activity for 3 weeks off and on following immunizations. Eyes rolled back a to side banged head not cooperative. Had from 1-9 times ad day during this period.

This case was considered medically important for the event of aluminum toxicity (OMIC). Information regarding Prevnar (pneumococcal 7 valent conjugate vaccine (diphtheria crm197 protein) injection) was received from a consumer regarding a 15 month old male pt whose speech stopped completely for 2 1/2 weeks, had fever for 5 days, became limp, screamed for hrs and would cry when trying to sleep, reduced his eye contact and became unresponsive when answering to name, was a delayed walker, dragging one leg and reverted to crawling in circles, banging into things. He developed balance problems and dizziness. Additionally, the pt received treatment for aluminum toxicity. At 15 months of age, the pt received the fourth dose on 15Dec05. The pt also received the fourth dose of diphtheria and tetanus toxoids (manf unk) and MMR on 15Dec05. The pt has a past history of five ear infections that occurred before the age of 18 months and a mild virus that developed on an unspecified date just prior to his receiving the last dose of Prevnar. The pt previously experienced pyrexia, fontanel swelling and irritability after receiving his first and second doses Prevnar on 02Nov04 and 04Apr05 respectively. Indication for Prevnar was immunization. Product was administered on 08Dec05, Dose regimen was 1 dose 1 time per day (IM). Additional suspect vaccines included MMR, diphtheria and tetanus toxoids, poliomyelitis vaccine inactivated, poliomyelitis vaccine inactivated, hep B vaccine, hep B vaccine, Hib titer vaccine (haemophilus b conjugate vaccine (diphtheria crm197 protein conjugate) injection) and Hib titer vaccine (haemophilus b conjugate vaccine (diphtheria crm197 protein conjugate) injection). Pt was not taking concomitant therapy. A mother reported that in Dec 2005, after receiving his fourth dose of Prevnar along with other childhood vaccines, her son started screaming for 2-3 hrs (screaming) and would then cry when trying to sleep for the next 3 months. The pt developed a fever between 100-101 deg F. for 5 days. His speech stop

This case was reported by a lawyer and described the occurrence of neurological injury in a male subject who was vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine (Engerix B) and or unidentified hepatitis B vaccine for prophylaxis. On an unspecified date the subject received unspecified dose of hepatitis B vaccine. According to the legal complaint, at an unspecified time after vaccination with hepatitis B vaccine, the subject experienced serious and permanent neurological injuries which were attributed to toxic mercury exposure. The following information was received via medical records. The subject was vaccinated with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and acellular pertussis vaccine DTap manufacturer unspecified on 6/19/90/, 8/7/90, 10/3/91, and 11/3/92. The subject received hepatitis B vaccination manufacturer unk 4/11/98, 5/9/98. 10/3/98. The subject had previously received Recombivax hepatitis B vaccination 4/11/97 and 6/13/97. A progress note dated 10/3/91 indicated that the subject was behind on immunizations and questioned the possibility of a developmental delay. The subject began walking at fourteen months of age. As of Feb 92, the subject was not speaking at all, but screams a lot and dose not seem to be getting any smarter. An evaluation in Aug 1992 was performed for behavioral problems including hyperactivity, distractibility, impulsivity, temper tantrums, rocking, head banging, and self injurious behavior. Evaluation also revealed disorder receptive and expressive language. Prior to Sept 1992 the subject was diagnosed with pervasive developmental disorder, autism, mental retardation accompanied by behavior problems and speech delay. Re evaluation on 9/20/93 confirmed developmental delay with moderate to severe mental retardation. on an unknown date, the subject was diagnosed with ADHD. Treatment with Ritalin initially resulted in minor improvements in behavior. However, Ritalin was subsequently discontinued with no significant change in the pts behavioral problems. The pt was re evaluated on a regular basis between 1

This case was reported by a lawyer and described the occurrence of neurological injury in a male subject who was vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine (Engerix B) and or unidentified hepatitis B vaccine for prophylaxis. On an unspecified date the subject received unspecified dose of hepatitis B vaccine. According to the legal complaint, at an unspecified time after vaccination with hepatitis B vaccine, the subject experienced neurological damage which was attributed to cumulative mercury toxicity. The following information was received via medical records, the subject was vaccinated with hepatitis B vaccine (unknown manufacturer) on 9/8/95, and with Engerix B on 10/9/95 and 3/14/96. He was also vaccinated with DTaP, OPV, MMR and HIB for prophylaxis. The subject took his first steps before twelve months. At two years of age the subject spoke his first understandable but poorly articulated words, and began speaking in phrases between tow and a half to three years of age. On 8/5/99, the subject was evaluated for complaint so frequent temper tantrums, mood instability, initial insomnia, possible articulation speech deficits, periods of high energy and aggression, and obsessive focus on particular subjects. He was diagnosed with Multicomplex developmental disorder (Pervasive developmental disorder). In Sept 1999, Ritalin therapy was initiated. On 12/14/99 the subject underwent a psychiatric evaluation due to concerns with social development. Problems included high strung and controlling behavior, spinning his body, jumping up and down and windmill arm action, poor eye contact, anxiety, use of repetitive phrases, aggression including biting and head butting, self injury including head banging, occasional daytime enuresis, and temper tantrum during transition periods.

FIRST DAY: TIRED, MUSCLES BECOMING WEAK, HEART BEATING FASTER, HEADACHE,ON SECOND DAY: SAME AS FIRST DAY, BUT THEN I BECAME CONFUSED AND BLACKED OUT, I DON'T REMEMBER THE FOLLOWING HAPPENING BUT, I SWUNG AROUND AND HIT MY GIRLFRIEND IN THE ARM BANGED ON THE FRONT WINDOW WHICH I BROKE, CUTTING MY ARM, I WAS AWAKE, BUT I DON'T REMEMBER MUCH OF IT. THE NEXT DAY I WOKE UP IT JAIL AND STILL FELT LIKE I WAS IN A DREAM.

Arm pain, gradually increasing from day the shot was given. One day after shot, a lump formed under skin that gradually got larger as days passed. Larget is was was 3/4 size of ping pong ball. Area was black, blue, green and very sensitive to touch almost immediately. Also caused flu like symptoms approximately 12 hours after shot was administered. Infection grew worse over next few days and sought out medical treatment 7 days after shot was given. Was given Diclocil antibiotics. By this time the arm was very sore to move, hot to the touch and getting worse by the hour. It also caused slow and increasing swelling of my entire body from day one of the shot. At one point, The area was so bad, it looked as if someone had taken a mellon ball scooper and scooped out all the tissue around the sizeable lump right down to the bone. By this time, the rest of my arm had begun to swell to the point of making my fingers numb and I thought I was in danger of serious blood infection or arm amputation. I sought medical attention 7 days after the shot was given, I was overseas and had to go to hospital there. I was advised that this was a very serious infection and I was not to leave the Bangkok area for at least 12 days to make sure the infection was under control. During the time after the shot was given, sweats and chills were prominent, and fever up to 101.3 were detected, with other fevers hovering at 100.00. The swelling of my whole body progressed with time. After I started the antibiotics, the swelling subsided about 20% and the lump gradually diminished to about 1/3 the largest size it had been. After 7 days of anti-biotics, the infection came back rapidly, within 12 hours of the last pill, and developed rapidly. Over the course of 3 hours the arm had swollen significantly and the lump tripled in size and the discoloration began to return. Two days after ending the first round of antibiotics, I saw urgent care at home. I was advised to take augmentin for 10 days and if it did not improve within the first

My daughter received 2 vaccines Tdap and HPV. The Tdap was injected in her right arm with no complaintsor event. Immediately after the Tdap injection she was injected with HPV vaccine in her left arm. She stated while the needle was still her arm that it hurt and she felt dizzy. As soon as she said she felt dizzy she passed out with her eyes closed. The nurse and I grap her to prevent her from falling off the exam table. Suddenly, she jerked back at the same time she jerked backwards her right arm jerked up over her head and her arm hit the window behind her then she became stiff and her whole body began to jerk. This appeared to me to look like she was having a seizure. The nusre also stated that she was having a seizure The nurse and I kept on calling her name and trying to stop her from banging into the window or to fall of the exam table. She came to in amount 30 seconds startled and wided eyed with her face pale and her lips white. The doctor came in after the entire event examined her said she was okay she laid down for about 15 mins and she was okay but still pale. Went home and my dauther slept for an hour.

Patient had a fever and a small rash 3 days after vaccination. On the sixth day she began to be very fussy. She would scream when the lights were turned on, if any toy made noise or it I touched her very much. She would bang her hang against things and was happiest in her room, by herself, in the dark. It was a dramatic change to her normal behavior. Someone mentioned it might be a Vitamin D deficiency. I gave her Cod Liver oil.

Patient is a fraternal twin of a 36.4 week gestation with a birth weight of 6 lbs 8 oz. His development was normal, reaching all developmental milestones as anticipated, all of which occurred within 1-2 weeks of his twin. On 2/27/07 he was diagnosed with an ear infection and given a 10 day course of amoxicillan. On 3/22/04 he had a well-visit with the pediatrician. Before consenting, I asked the pediatrician about the possible connection between MMR and autism. He dismissed my concern, stating that there was no proof to support such a claim. MMR and HIB vaccinations were given. He was screaming and crying inconsolably and had a fever of 103F within an hour after the vaccinations. Within 14 days, he lost eye contact, lost speech, became sullen and withdrawn, no longer responded to his name, began arm flapping with mouth open and rigid, became tactile defensive, and he began head banging and hitting himself stopped trying new food textures. On 5/12/04 he had an appointment with the pediatrician re: above symptoms. I asked if this could be PDD. The doctor said "to give it more time" and that "teething likely source of expressive language delay." Pediatrician finally consented to PDD testing on 10/5/04 and referrals made. Diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder by pediatric psychologist on 11/2/04. 04/10/2007 MR received from pediatric psychologist for initial consultation on 11/2/2004 with F/Us 8/2, 8/10,& 8/24 2005 for c/o developmental delays primarily in receptive and expressive language skills and head banging.

This case was reported by a lawyer and described the occurrence of nerve injury in a male subject of unspecified age who was vaccinated with Engerix, DTaP, Polio, MMR, and Hib for prophylaxis. The subject was vaccinated with Engerix-B on 13 April 1995, 18 May 1995, and 18 January 1996. According to the legal complaint, at an unspecified time after vaccination with hepatitis B vaccine, the subject experienced "serious and permanent neurological injuries" which were "alleged to be caused by Thimerosal." Follow up information was received on 30 March 2007 via medical records. It was noted that the subject's father was a "head banger and had temper tantrums" as a child. Other family history was significant for Down Syndrome. On 27 October 1996, the subject was involved in a motor vehicle accident; it was noted that he was in the "rear seat with a belt, rolled over five times", but was uninjured. The subject reportedly sat at 6 months, stood at 12 months, walked at 14 months and was "bubbly and talkative" at 15 months. On 11 April 1997, the subject was seen for a two year old "well visit". At that time, the subject experienced slightly delayed speech, with progress notes indicating "five to six words, understands well". An educational evaluation on 24 April 1997 revealed "only a slight delay in expressive language", and speech/language therapy was not recommended at that time. The subject had an expressive vocabulary of 15 to 20 words, and speech sound development was assessed to be age-appropriate. As early as September 1997, the subject's parents expressed concern about a "probability of a diagnosis of autism". On 12 September 1997, recommendation was made for weekly speech and language therapy. A pediatrician's progress note dated 23 October 1997 indicated delayed speech with a question of regression at approximately 18 months of age. At that time, the subject was reportedly interacting with other children better, and exhibited occasional temper tantrums. On 06 February 1998, the subject's problem list included rec

MD notes speech is normal for a boy that age. Multiple visits for cold sx, OM, reported epistaxis,and cough.

Information has been received from a physician concerning an 18-month-old male twin with no pertinent medical history and no drug reactions/allergies who on 08-FEB-2007 was vaccinated IM with the first 656495/1209F). There was no concomitant medication. On 08-FEB-2007, after the patient was released from care, he experienced 3 hours of uncontrollable crying. His mom administered Motrin to him one hour prior to returning to the office. he was additionally given Tylenol at the office and Benadryl one hour after the Tylenol. The physician noted that the child seemed sensitive to light and was banging his head. A follow-up was made the next day, in which the parent stated that the child was fine and playing. The outcome was recovered on 09-FEB-2007. The twin brother who was also vaccinated experienced no adverse effect. There were no lab diagnostic studies performed. There was no product quality complaint. Additional information has been requested.

Son started displaying signs of Autism around 15-16 months old. He was hitting all milestones either before or right on target. He stopped using the few words he had, wasn't pointing to objects he wanted, tantrums started getting horrible, started headbanging, lack of eye contact started. 18 months behavior changed for the worst, more headbanging, running into patio door, stopped responding to name and noise around him, didn't like things over his hands, started lining up toys, didn't play appropriatly with toys, no eye contact, no speech, no pointing, arm flapping started, easily upset to change, and eating habits changed.

My apologies, Aspergers not mentioned, Autism
What a long strange trip it's been..............

Scientific Link to Autism Identified

JACKSON, N.J., Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- During its research into the application of neuroscience in business, a New Jersey based think tank, The Center for Modeling Optimal Outcomes®, LLC (The Center) made an inadvertent and amazing discovery.

The Center examined the neuroscientific dynamics of logic and emotion in decision making while researching neuroscience in business. They found unique corollary relationships between various brain chemicals (neurohormones, neurotransmitters, etc.). This apparent pattern led to a new path of research for the team outside of business. By looking at extensive scientific literature they discovered a cascade of hormones that emanate from the brain (hypothalamus). This same pattern of correlations was again apparent throughout the cascade. The group added a research biologist and started to test the pattern on genes (proteins). It remained consistent. The Center then called upon advisors from chemistry and physics to see if the pattern would apply in physical sciences.

To the amazement of the group, it became apparent that this pattern of corollary relationships could be applied to scientific processes for maintaining equilibrium (homeostatic relationships) throughout all of science; from subatomic particles to chemistry as well as between biological substances.

While the entire scientific community knows that homeostasis exists, this tacit knowledge has not been converted into a step-by-step, replicable model. The Center identified precisely such an explicit process.

Challenged by several of The Center's advisors, members of the team decided to test the efficacy of the model to determine if the disruptions that cause autism could be identified.

After careful review of countless scientific studies, meeting with several renowned scientists to discuss their findings, and then applying the modeling process to numerous hypotheses, The Center's Life Sciences group was able to formulate a scientifically verifiable model for the highly probable causal path of autism. Through the application of their model, it became apparent that autism is an outcome of several variables that, when the homeostatic relationship of each one is disrupted, a "perfect storm" scenario results in autism. The application of the model identified several of the variables that account for why boys have a 4 to 1 ratio of instances over girls as well as why not every boy is affected.
While the scientific community will have to validate The Center's findings, the model for assessing homeostatic relationships indicates the "trigger" behind autism is an imbalance between a pair of amino acid neurotransmitters; glutamate and glycine.

According to The Center's founder, William McFaul, a retired business person and not a member of the scientific community, "Because of its universal applicability, our Life Sciences group has already used the model as a tool to identify highly probable causal paths for several illnesses and disease entities. Autism was one of most difficult illnesses The Center had attempted to analyze. If it hadn't been for so many parents insisting that vaccines were responsible for the condition, we might never have found the fact that the stabilizer in MMR and a few other vaccines is hydrolyzed gelatin; a substance that is approximately 21% glycine. It appears that, based on readily verifiable science, the use of that form of glycine triggers an imbalance between the amino acid neurotransmitters responsible for the absorption rate of certain classes of cells throughout the body. It is that wide-spread disruption that apparently results in the systemic problems that encompass the mind and the body characterized in today's 'classic' autism." He also added, "The use of our model indicates each of the disorders within Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is attributable to different disruptions in homeostasis. We look forward to sharing our findings relative to each disorder with the scientific community."
According to Linda Oliver-Perrier, The Center's spokesperson for their Life Sciences group, "The details of the disruptive process are somewhat complex and not conducive for explanation in a press release. We have posted a more detailed explanation on our web site, www.TheCenterNJ.com/lifesciences.html. She added, "Undoubtedly, this finding based on the application of the model for homeostasis will cause immense controversy. Our Life Sciences group is prepared to meet with members of the scientific community to explain the model as well as the variables that create the 'perfect storm' that results in autism."

McFaul added, "The Center is seeking to affiliate with academic centers to provide its model for homeostasis to the scientific community for use as a tool to enable researchers to identify root causes of illnesses and disease entities. The Center is a think tank that creates models. We are not an operating company with the resources to educate individuals or organizations on the application of the models we create.

Great discussion....I'm glad to see folks talking about ths.

Autism is truley a tragic disease...my condolances to all that have had experiences with it.

I believe that autism, and other related illnesses, is on the rise because vaccines are on the rise. In 1960, children had to have 3 or 4 vaccines to attend school....in 2009, that amount has almost doubled.....

There is a direct corelation between the vaccines and autism! The mercury and other additives in the vaccines are what is causing these poor children to suffer.

I emplore you all to NOT let your children be vaccinated for several reasons...

1. The vaccines are NOT proven to work.
2. Many additives in the vaccines are poisonous.
3. There are natural remedies and treatments that one can use to CURE all the diseases "Treated" by the vaccines....(cures work much better than treatments)....
4. The side effects of the vaccines could be deadly or dibilitating.
AND the list goes on and on.........

Lets look at this logicaly for a second......
Take a vaccine with questionable ingredients, that has questionable effectivness and questionable side effects, made by people with questionable incentives.....?

Or,...take a few vitamens/suppliments/herbs that have no side effects, you could grow yourself, and know everything about....?

Which would you chose???... I think the answer is clear....

Peace and long life.... :cheers:
Take it easy...and if its easy...take it twice!!
