Measles, Mumps, Rubella Vaccine (series) - 1st round given at 12-15 months old:
The evidence convincingly supports a causal relationship between MMR vaccine and measles inclusion body encephalitis in individuals with demonstrated immune deficiencies. P.110 Institute of Medicine Report on Adverse Effects of Vaccines/2011
Measles inclusion body encephalitis is characterized by persistent measles virus infection, causing inflammation in both the white and gray matter and characterized by the presence of nuclear inclusion bodies.
We report a case of measles inclusion-body encephalitis (MIBE) occurring in an apparently healthy 21-month-old boy 8.5 months after measles-mumps-rubella vaccination. He had no prior evidence of immune deficiency and no history of measles exposure or clinical disease. During hospitalization, a primary immunodeficiency characterized by a profoundly depressed CD8 cell count and dysgammaglobulinemia was demonstrated.
Note: The presence of measles virus in the brain tissue was confirmed by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. The nucleotide sequence in the nucleoprotein and fusion gene regions was identical to that of the Moraten and Schwarz vaccine strains; the fusion gene differed from known genotype A wild-type viruses. Clinical Infectious Diseases 1999 Oct; 29(4):855-61
The incidence/prevalence of data indicate the timing of introduction of vaccines & changes in the type & increasing number of vaccines given at one time implicate vaccines as a cause of autism. The MMR II vaccine is contaminated with human DNA from the cell line. This human DNA could be the cause of the spikes in incidence. Journal of Immunotoxicology, 2011; 8(1): see pages 68-79
Official Package Insert: M-M-R II is a sterile lyophilized preparation of (1) ATTENUVAX* (Measles Virus Vaccine Live), a more attenuated line of measles virus, derived from Enders attenuated Edmonston strain and propagated in chick embryo cell culture; (2) MUMPSVAX* (Mumps Virus Vaccine Live), the Jeryl Lynn** (B level) strain of mumps virus propagated in chick embryo cell culture; and (3) MERUVAX* II (Rubella Virus Vaccine Live), the Wistar RA 27/3 strain of live attenuated rubella virus propagated in WI-38 human diploid lung fibroblasts (aborted fetal tissue).
WI-38 came from lung cells from a female fetus of 3-months (terminated during the 1st Trimester/United States 1961) gestation:
Minced preparations were obtained by cutting the tissue in a Petri dish containing GM (growth medium) with paired scalpels or a scissors until the size of each piece approximated l-4 mm3. Fragmented preparations were obtained by tearing apart the tissue with two pairs of forceps in a Petri dish containing GM until the pieces could no longer conveniently be grasped and shredded.
The WI-38 and MRC-5 cell cultures have been used to prepare hundreds of millions of doses of (following) vaccines rubella (third component of the MMR series, administered in 2 doses, first at 12 months old), hepatitis A (administered in 2 doses, first at 12 months old), varicella (chickenpox, administered in 2 doses, first at 12 months old) and rabies (administered selectively pending rabies-related emergency).

Mutations and minority variants, relative to vaccine strains, not known to affect attenuation were detected in OPV, mumps virus, and varicella-zoster virus. The anticipated detection of endogenous retroviral sequences from the producer avian and primate cells was confirmed. Avian leukosis virus (ALV), previously shown to be noninfectious for humans, was present as RNA in viral particles, while simian retrovirus (SRV) was present as genetically defective DNA. Journal of Virology, June 2010 vol. 84 no. 12
The MMR, DTaP and some flu shots contain Neomycin. Neomycin destroys gut bacteria (good and bad), which allows pathogens to take over and weaken the immune system. When the immune system is destroyed or weakened, pathogens can take hold. When you kill the Alpha pathogen that was keeping a pack of lesser bugs under control, you unleash a Pandora's Box of mutated strains, and the formerly lesser pathogens become increasingly virulent. The shots also contain Polysorbate 80, which degrades (makes permeable) the gut and blood brain barrier, allowing the vaccine contents to enter where they should not be.
Dave Mihalovic, ND Vaccines are Causing an Unprecedented Number of Mutations
From the moment that surgeon Andrew Wakefield first published his explosive theory suggesting a link between autism, bowel disease and the measles, mumps and rubella triple jab, the government and the medical establishment have been determined to discredit him and thus destroy his research.
Over the weekend, it looked as if they had finally managed it. The Sunday Times suggested that Mr Wakefield's original Lancet paper in 1998, which first indicated such links, was a scandalous manipulation of the evidence.
The report claimed Mr Wakefield had failed to tell the Lancet he had also received legal aid funds to carry out a separate study, as part of the legal case being brought by parents of autistic children against the MMR manufacturers. To make matters even worse, it alleged, some of the children in the Lancet paper were involved in the court case. The Lancet study was therefore fatally compromised, since the parents had stood to gain financially if Mr Wakefield's researches had enabled them to claim compensation.
No sooner did the story appear than the Health Secretary Dr John Reid demanded an urgent inquiry. However, upon examination the picture significantly changes. The Sunday Times originally made a series of claims against Mr Wakefield, which were all actually rejected by the Lancet except for the conflict of interest. But when one looks at the facts, this too begins to look a bit different.
Mr Wakefield's legal aid-funded study was commissioned by solicitor Richard Barr, who had been approached by parents of children sick with autism and bowel disease who wanted to take legal action against the manufacturers of MMR. Mr Barr wanted to know whether there was clinical evidence to support such a case. So he asked Mr Wakefield to look at possible links between measles virus and bowel disease.
The Sunday Times report claimed that four or five of the 12 children in the entirely separate Lancet study were part of this legal action. But their parents only decided to go to court after they had been accepted for treatment by Mr Wakefield's team at London's Royal Free hospital.
The implication that they were selected because they were litigants with a financial interest in the results of the clinical examination is grotesque. All twelve of them were referred through normal NHS processes, either from doctors' recommendations or after desperate parents, having heard on the grapevine of Mr Wakefield's unusual sympathy towards these problems, had contacted him of their own volition. It was only subsequently that a few of them became part of the legal case.
So the two Wakefield studies were entirely separate, with no cross over. True, the Lancet editor has said the second study should have been disclosed to avoid the 'perception' of a conflict of interest, and that had he known of its existence, he wouldn't have published Mr Wakefield's paper which was 'fatally flawed' as a result.
But surely Mr Wakefield is being accused of a conflict of interest which did not occur at the time, in order to create the false impression that he and his colleagues deliberately skewed their selection of children for investigation in the Lancet exercise to support a crack-brained theory. Surely, he is being damned by the misleading application of hindsight, which has seriously misrepresented what happened. In other words, this appears to be nothing other than a smear.
It is also a smear whose timing should raise a few eyebrows. For the Legal Services Commission has now cut off legal aid funding for the parents, which threatens to stop the case altogether. It just so happened that Mr Barr applied for judicial review of that decision a week ago, and judgment has been reserved. So this smear looks very like an attempt to influence the court and ensure the case dies.
And make no mistake, the stakes could not be higher. The drug companies, the government and the medical establishment have every reason to fear this case going ahead.
For although Mr Wakefield is the focus of the frenzy, many other pieces of evidence suggest that concern over the vaccine is by no means confined to one possibly obsessive doctor. Although the vast majority of children clearly have no adverse reaction whatever from the MMR jab, the number of families with a very different story to tell indicate that, for a small proportion of children, something worrying may be happening.
What is so striking is the sheer volume of parents, not just in Britain but in America and other countries, who tell the same story of children who were developing normally - often with videos to prove it - only to stop developing and start suffering bowel disease after the MMR jab.
Moreover, vaccine-strain measles virus has been found in the gut of some children with autism and bowel disease. Earlier this month Dr Jeff Bradstreet, a US autism researcher, presented evidence to the Institute of Medicine in Washington showing measles virus in the cerebral-spinal fluid of three children with autism and bowel disease.
This virus most definitely should not be there; and the question is how it got there in children who had been vaccinated against measles. None of this proves MMR causes either bowel disease or autism; but it certainly indicates a cause for concern.
The government insists, however, that research overwhelmingly shows the vaccine is safe. But this is not so. The research in question investigates patterns of disease based on medical records. But this is unlikely to get to the bottom of the issue, since countless parents have said doctors not only failed to diagnose autism or bowel disease in their children but dismissed out of hand the parents' reports that the problems seemed to start with the triple jab.
In any event, these studies do not prove MMR is safe. They say there is no proof it is not safe, a very different matter. The official misrepresentation of these conclusions is one of the most worrying things about this controversy. This is particularly so since the government had introduced the first type of MMR vaccine in 1989 - which it had to withdraw three years later because it was shown to cause aseptic meningitis - even though it knew at the time that Canada had already withdrawn it because it was found to be unsafe.
And as for conflicts of interest, what about the many scientists on the government's vaccine safety bodies who are funded by the pharmaceutical companies?
Certainly, it is extremely worrying if parents are refusing to vaccinate their children against measles, mumps and rubella, with the dangers they pose of serious illness or even death. But not only does the government refuse to allow the use of less worrying single jabs - it also refuses to do the one thing that could settle this matter one way or the other.
Instead of calling for an inquiry into Mr Wakefield and dismissing parents' concerns with such contempt, it should commission an independent, clinical investigation of affected children. Only then will we be able to judge who in this wretched story is actually right, and only then will all children get the vaccinations they need.
