Vaccine Court to Release Autism Ruling Today

Posted Feb 13 2009 4:48pm

Update:  The court ruled that there is no biological plausibility that there is a link between Autism and Vaccines based upon the evidence submitted by three families.   I’m sure there will be a lot of discussion related to this ruling.  As I am able to uncover more information I will continue to post updates.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today after hearing from more than 180 lawyers collectively representing the 4,800 families with claims, the Vaccine Court Omnibus Autism Proceeding will issue a ruling about the following unanswered questions:

  • Does Thimerosal used in vaccines cause Autism?
  • Does the MMR vaccine cause autism?
  • Does the combination of Thimerosal-containing vaccines and the MMR vaccine cause autism?

According to CNN.com:

” Since 2001, thousands of parents with autistic children have filed petitions seeking compensation with Vaccine Injury Compensation Program at the Department of Health and Humans Services.  By mid-2008, more than 5,300 cases were filed in the program — 5,000 of those await adjudication, according to the agency.”

I’ve written about this issue in many previous posts.  Keep checking back as I will be updating this post later today with the final ruling, once it’s released.
