On my son's Michael's behalf I will say that without Dr. Wakefield's courage to publish his findings, I would not have been able to help him. I remember going to Regional Center for help and their expert advice was to put him on psychotic medications. Every time I tried to get help from a doctor, Michael got treated like just another crazy person. Though the MMR is not the only culprit in his autism, since DTaP left him lethargic and he didn't smiled much and lost all eye contact, after receiving it, the MMR condemned him to a life of pain and 12 years later the pain continues.
New Study proves once again that Dr. Wakefield's findings were accurate.
New American research shows that there could be a link between the controversial MMR triple vaccine and autism and bowel disease in children.
The study appears to confirm the findings of British doctor Andrew Wakefield, who caused a storm in 1998 by suggesting a possible link.
Now a team from the Wake Forest University School of Medicine in North Carolina are examining 275 children with regressive autism and bowel disease - and of the 82 tested so far, 70 prove positive for the measles virus.
Last night the team's leader, Dr Stephen Walker, said: 'Of the handful of results we have in so far, all are vaccine strain and none are wild measles.
'This research proves that in the gastrointestinal tract of a number of children who have been diagnosed with regressive autism, there is evidence of measles virus.
