Institute for Autism Science and the Informed Consent Action Network

Vs

Centre for Disease Control and Prevention



This court case was filed in the Southern District of New York on the 12/31/19 and reached its conclusions on 3/2/20.

PDF claim, 13.4 MB

To summarize some of the main points in this claim.

2.By granting pharmaceutical companies immunity from actual or potential liability from injuries caused by vaccines, Congress eliminated the market forces relied upon to assure the safety of these often mandatory consumer products.

4.In the past decade, no claim regarding vaccination has received more attention and publicity than the claim that vaccines cause autism.

5 The CDC make the assertion that "vaccinations do not cause autism", and still do.

6. Numerous peer-reviewed articles report that a majority of parents of children with autism have and continue to report one or more vaccines as a cause of their child’s autism.

7. The Autism Groups wanted to post the studies the CDC relied upon to assert that vaccines do not cause autism to worried parents.

8. The more research the Autism Groups conducted, the more apparent it appeared that these studies do not exist.

The Autism Groups submitted a FOIA requesting the studies that CDC relies upon to claim that the DTaP, Hepatitis B, Hib, PCV13, and IPV vaccine does not cause autism.

13. The Autism Groups seek the CDC either admit they have no studies or produce them.

22. Since 1983, the childhood vaccine schedule has gone from 7 injections of just 2 vaccines (DTP & MMR) to 50 injections of 12 vaccines (Hep B, DTaP, Hib, PCV13, IPV, IIV, MMR, VAR, Hep A, Men, Tdap & HPV). The liability free market has grown to $35 Billion in 2017.

25. HHS has failed to fulfill even its basic duties under the Mandate "For safer childhood vaccines”. A recent letter exchange with HHS was unable to support most of its vaccine safety claims with any data or studies.

26. HHS has vigorously fulfilled its obligations to increase vaccine uptake and defend against legal claims that a vaccine caused an injury.

27. HHS spends over $5 billion annually promoting and purchasing vaccines.

28. HHS is the respondent in Vaccine Court and is legally obligated to defend against any claim that a vaccine causes injury. Hence, HHS, while responsible for vaccine safety, is simultaneously responsible for the conflicting duty of defending against claims of vaccine injuries.

29. HHS is represented by the resources of the U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”).

30. Any studies or assertion by HHS or its agencies (including the CDC) which reflect that a vaccine that is already on the market causes a harm can and will be used against HHS in Vaccine Court to establish liability.

31. the U.S. House Committee on Government Reform has found, the “overwhelming majority of members” of the CDC and FDA’s vaccine committees had conflicts of interest because of “substantial ties to the pharmaceutical industry,” and that these committees reflect “a system where government officials make crucial decisions affecting American children without the advice and consent of the governed.”

33, Given the lack of a placebo control and the short safety review periods, DTaP vaccines were never assessed prior to licensure for whether they could cause autism. This is causing medical, legal and political challenges.

35. In 1986, Congress Directed HHS to Review Whether Pertussis Vaccines Cause Autism.

38. 1991 Findings include:

In the course of its review, the committee found many gaps and limitations in knowledge bearing directly and indirectly on the safety of vaccines. ... If research capacity and accomplishment in this field are not improved, future reviews of vaccine safety will be similarly handicapped.


42. 2012 Findings include:

The evidence is inadequate to accept or reject a causal relationship between diphtheria toxoid–, tetanus toxoid–, or acellular pertussis–containing vaccine and autism.


44. The only study the 2012 review could locate regarding whether DTaP causes autism (Geier and Geier, 2004) concluded there was an association between DTaP and autism.

46. 2014 again concluded it could not identify a single study to support the claim that DTaP does not cause autism.

47. In 2017, the Director of the NIH, and the Chairman of the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee Were Unable to Produce a Single Study to Support that DTaP Vaccine Does Not Cause Autism.

50. In 2017, Scientists from Major Universities in Canada, France and the United Kingdom Studying Aluminum Adjuvants Raise Serious Concerns that DTaP and Other Aluminum Adjuvanted Vaccines May be Causing Autism.

53. This science reflects that: injected aluminum adjuvant is taken up by immune cells (macrophages) at the injection site; these aluminum-adjuvant-loaded immune cells then travel through the lymph vessels to, among other places, the brain; the immune cells then unload their aluminum adjuvant cargo in the brain; and aluminum adjuvant in the brain causes a release of interleukin IL-6 and microglial activation, leading to autism.

This white paper has not been refuted by Dr. Gordon, any other directors at NIH, or by any scientists at CDC.

54. On June 11, 2018, Dr. Stanley Plotkin, who has a strong influence on vaccination policy was interviewed under oath,


Q ... If you don't know whether DTaP or Tdap cause autism, shouldn't you wait until you do know, until you have the science to support it to then say that vaccines do not cause autism?

A Do I wait? No, I do not wait because I have to take into account the health of the child.

Q And so for that reason, you're okay with telling the parent that DTaP/Tdap does not cause autism even though the science isn’t there yet to support that claim?

A Absolutely


57. On September 7, 2018, one of the World’s Leading Experts on Autism and Mitochondrial Disorder and HHS’s Autism Expert Attests Vaccines Can Cause Autism.

Dr Zimmerman was a Reviewer for the National Academy of Sciences 2004 report entitled IMMUNIZATION SAFETY REVIEW: VACCINES AND AUTISM for the CDC. As an expert witness he was of the opinion hat there were exceptions in which vaccinations could cause autism.


In a subset of children with an underlying mitochondrial dysfunction, vaccine induced fever and immune stimulation that exceeded metabolic energy reserves could, and in at least one of my patients, did cause regressive encephalopathy with features of autism spectrum disorder


After Dr Zimmerman clarified his opinions he was no longer needed as an expert witness. The CDC continued to refer to Dr Zimmerman's earlier opinions, before he undertook the review.

62. 2018 Letter exchange between ICAN and HHS


HHS’s claim that “Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism” relies almost entirely upon studies exclusively studying only one vaccine, MMR (which is administered no earlier than one year of age), or only one vaccine ingredient, thimerosal, with regard to autism.

CDC Senior Scientist Dr. William Thompson states CDC omitted statistically significant information showing an association between the MMR vaccine and autism in the first and only MMR-autism study ever conducted by the CDC with American children.

The CDC has also failed to address the science supporting a link between vaccines and autism For example, the CDC has not addressed a recent and first ever vaccinated vs. unvaccinated pilot study which found vaccinated children had a 420% increased rate of autism and that vaccinated preterm babies had an even higher rate of autism. There is also a persuasive body of science supporting a clear connection between aluminum adjuvants in vaccines and autism which the CDC, despite numerous requests, has failed to directly or substantively address.


64. Upon examination of the links provided by HHS, it is clear that none of these links contain a single study which supports the claim that neither DTaP, nor any other vaccine given during the first six months of life, do not cause autism.

The third study provided by HSS concedes: “ASD with regression, in which children usually lose developmental skills during the second year of life, could be related to exposure in infancy, including vaccines".

This antigen exposure study could have compared children receiving no-antigens, meaning no vaccines, with children receiving vaccine antigens. That would finally provide real data. Instead, the study engages in yet another nonsensical whitewash review in which it compares vaccinated children with vaccinated children, with the only real difference typically being that some children received DTaP while others received DTP

This study further ignores the fact that while “antigens” (as defined in the study) in vaccines have decreased since the late 1990s, the amount of aluminum adjuvant, a neuro-and-cyto-toxic immune stimulant, used in vaccines has significantly increased.

The fifth study HHS cites in its letter is the “Strategic Plan for Autism Spectrum Disorder Research” by the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee. This 196 page strategic plan outlines dozens of research priorities, but does not once mention closing the vaccine safety science gap regarding whether DTaP, Hepatitis B, and every other vaccine given by one year of age cause autism.

The strategy plan even explains that “neuroinflammation” may cause autism, but ignores the fact that neuroinflammation (a.k.a., encephalitis or encephalopathy) is a known reaction to numerous vaccines. The strategic plan also recognizes “immune dysregulation” – which again can be caused by vaccines – may cause autism.


Lawyer: Your opinion is contrary to, say, the opinion of the CDC, correct?
Dr. Kelley: It is contrary to their conclusion. It is not contrary to their data.


The view apparently held by HHS that “public health” demands hiding any relationship between vaccines and autism to assure high vaccine uptake, is troubling. This view ignores that the real “public health” emergency is that 1 in 36 children are now diagnosed with autism.

The CDC is paralyzed right now by anything related to autism. The reason may be that if a single study conducted by HHS shows that even 1 in 5 cases of autism are caused by vaccines, it would result in approximately $1.3 trillion in liability and a decimation of HHS’s reputation.

72. Study from the Stony Brook University Medical Center in New York, which found a 300% increased rate of autism among newborns receiving the Hepatitis B vaccine at birth, compared to those who did not get this vaccine at birth.

77. The clinical trial for Prevnar 13 found that “Serious adverse events reported following vaccination in infants and toddlers occurred in 8.2% among Prevnar 13 recipients and 7.2% among Prevnar recipients. Licensure for Prevnar 13 to be injected into babies was still granted because it had a similar serious adverse reaction rate as the control group did when receiving Prevnar.

78. The Autism Groups are also not aware of a study after licensure to support that Prevnar 13 does not cause autism. On the other hand, there are many parents who have reported that their children began exhibiting the behavioral features of autism shortly after receiving this vaccine. The CDC’s childhood vaccine schedule provides that Prevnar 13 be injected three times by six months of age.

82. Like Hep B and Prevnar 13, none of these Hib vaccines were assessed, prior to licensure, for whether they can cause autism. The CDC’s childhood vaccine schedule provides the Hib vaccine be injected intramuscularly three times by six months of age.

86. Like the previously listed vaccines, prior to licensure, IPV was never assessed for whether it can cause autism. The clinical trial relied upon to license IPV had no control group and a safety review period of three days. The CDC’s childhood vaccine schedule provides that IPV be injected intramuscularly three times by six months of age.

88. In 2019, FOIA request to CDC requesting “Copies of the studies the CDC relies upon to claim that the cumulative exposure of vaccines it recommends that babies be administered during the first six months of life do not cause autism.” The CDC has not produced any studies.

91. The most recent data from CDC reveals that 1 in 36 children born this year in the United States will have an autism diagnosis. This is a true epidemic. The CDC and health authorities have conducted a decades-long media campaign seeking to assure parents that vaccines do not cause autism. But, making such statements without supporting studies is irresponsible.

-- End of claim summary

A Statement by ICAN - Informed Consent Action Network after the proceedings:

C DC Fails to Produce to Support its Claim that Vaccines Given During the First Six Months of Life “Do Not Cause Autism” |


In the stipulation, the CDC was only able to identify 20 studies:
- One relating to MMR (a vaccine ICAN did not challenge)
- Thirteen relating to thimerosal (an ingredient not in any of the vaccines ICAN queried)
- Five relating to both MMR and thimerosal
- One relating to antigen (not a vaccine) exposure.

The CDC listed a review in response to the FOIA requests which concluded that there are no studies to support that DTaP does not cause autism. The CDC complains that those raising concerns about vaccine safety
are unscientific and misinformed,

Won't go anywhere.

It's not correct.

You're not aware of this, but there's actually tens of millions of children who have had early childhood vaccines (and a lot of vaccinations) and never develop autism. These are military brats (like me). We got vaccinated every time we moved (about once every three years.)

Also children of missionaries. Stop and ask missionary friends how many of them have autistic kids. Their kids can't travel with them unless they are vaccinated.

Also children of State Department employees. I doubt you know any of those, but you can investigate that group.

Then check out military families of other nations, and child athletes who travel internationally and so forth. If vaccines caused autism, there would be high rates of autism in all these groups (and this would be true of every child in this group since WWII.)

Great, so you know some kids that are doing ok. What about the 3% of the population that are not doing as well?

HHS wants to save a Trillion dollars by not acknowledging the real risks of vaccinations so lets just give up because it won't go anywhere? What is the real cost on the nation and the world when dealing with all the issues higher rates of Autism bring?

You want to give up, that's your call, I will pass.

It appears that there are a lot of problems vaccines do cause, but there seems to be no direct link to autism. There may be some other adverse ways that vaccines can cause autism, but I have not seen any evidence of it unless overvaccination is happening, which is possible in the USA because of how many vaccinations they push on kids.

They want us to focus on the measles vaccine and autism because it is easy to disprove. They want us to focus on fake evidence being fed to us by people who actually are purposely spreading rumors so we believe in things they can easily disprove. Look in all directions, if you give a vaccine to fight flu, it lowers your resistance to viral pneumonia and other diseases.....that is how antigen therapy works. Also, if you steer it to fight certain things, our immune system might not see cancer cells because it is focusing on vaccine antigen response. don't let them narrow your perception, otherwise the truth will go undetected, keep autism in mind as a side effect, but study how vaccines can cause us harm by steering our immune system to fight things we may not have a problem with and then it misses the real threat. If it would only be a couple of vaccines, it probably would not be much of a problem, but they give us way too many these days.

This is one of the biggest links of causation for Autism I have found. Vaccinations are purposefully designed to cause an immune response. As we get older we get better at handling the inflammation response. For a young baby that does experience brain inflammation, things break. Sometimes the individual can recover from this damage in a short period of time, sometimes it takes many years if at all.

Medical ability has gone far beyond the prehistoric vaccination mantras.....of course vaccinations cause illnesses you are injecting poisons into the body for no reason other than to make the body sick.

I believe that glyphosate plays a part as well. As roundup became more widespread, so did autism. I know correlation is not causation

As well as fake sugars, especially HFCS. Obesity and other common health issues have skyrocketed since the early 80s when this was released into our food. Other factors cause these issues as well but it's a big one.

Did you know that ritual circumcision is also related to autism?

And boys that have been circumcised are more likely to have an adverse effect to vaccines.

It is the problem caused by multiple vaccines that causes autism, not just a single vaccine like they want us to focus on. Yes, over-vaccinating can cause many neurological conditions. If you give people multiple vaccines it causes our immune system to focus on those diseases and then you get sick from a different type of virus too. They know this, so they push more vaccinations to make up for the fact that they dampened the response for the other viruses and microbes out there that are not covered by the vaccines.....they are increasing susceptibility to viruses not vaccinated for. Even if you had the norovirus, you do not get good immunity because your body is focusing on the vaccinated ones, hence, SARS-CoV-2 comes along and people's immune systems do not see it till it gets too populated.

As your OP asserts.. Vaccines are a huge business with limited to no liability. What liability does exist is just a strange relationship with HHS, etc.

The lack of proper trials is obviously an issue, and as far as I can tell from the literature from the vaccines themselves, they really only keep an eye on things for a few days afterwards.

In the context of current times, I find it interesting that so many that demand double blind RCT of something like HCQ, do not hold vaccines to the same standard.

Its a fascinating phenomena. The level of trust that people have in this specific business industry is staggering. Its like some just assume there are altruistic motives there, where they dont exist in any other industry.

Beyond the possible links with autism, there are also other concerns. As rickymouse mentioned, virus interference is a "thing," and one that must be carefully considered before we go down this road of receiving vaccines for everything. Frankly, as a business that is now requesting less liability, they are exceedingly well positioned to create repeat customers who have no choice. This seems to be a total blind spot for many people.

We really dont know what the effects will be for completely messing with the normal immune system process and our biology. Some have been raising the alarm about general vaccine dependency as well, where we are building a civilization that may eventually end up incapable of mounting any natural, innate immune response to any pathogen. Where we absolutely require frequent artificial tampering for our very survival. While not the most comforting thought, it would be great for business!

Coming up with new, profitable pharmaceutical compounds has become time and resource intensive. And, there are all those pesky laws. Vaccines dont have such restrictions, with regards to safety or efficacy, and the public has a nearly unshakeable trust in the product.

This is an issue that the Institute for Autism Science is trying investigate. There is a clear lack of available studies and investigation from the CDC on these questions.

When looking into some of the cases where there is a sudden onset of Autism, there is a strong relationship to a recent vaccination. Point 78 of the claim includes one case where all three triples developed Autism within hours of injection.

The cumulative effects of vaccinations is a problem. Have read one case where a child did have an adverse reaction to a vaccination and eventually recovered. When the next vaccination was administered, the child had a much stronger relapse with more significant injury.

this part that the poster stated first ever vaccinated vs. unvaccinated pilot study which found vaccinated children had a 420% increased rate of autism....do I need to point out the OBVIOUS>>

millions of children get vaccinated so I am using the number 1 million...so if there are a million children and 90% get vacinated that is a pool of 900,000 that leaves there other 10 per cent not vacccinated that would be 10,000 well OF COURSE there will be more case in 900,000 children then 10,000

and where did this all start andrew wakefiled and what study did he do he and his friend hand pick 14 children in his study yes ONLY 14 in 1 group and he made sure they all had something else but I don't remember off the top of my head....and using this horrible study he decreed that vaccines cause autism that's what parents went with......as far as studies go this is TERRIBLE

I agree that there is something terrible going on. Why won't the CDC release the data of the autism rates between the vaccinated and vaccinated children?

It is good to see you trying to work out the statics, so lets go with your numbers.

900 000 vaccinated
100 000 unvaccinated

I don't have the actual figures, but lets say 100 of the unvaccinated have Autism. A 420% increase means for every 100 000 vaccinated, 420 will have Autism. In a pool of 900 000 this equals 3780 cases of Autism.

I don't know much about Andrew Wakefiled. I do know this is bigger than the opinions of just one doctor.

I have had a quick look into Andrew Wakefield.

Firstly, the MMR vaccination is not relevant to the proceedings of the case outlined. There are many other vaccinations around, each with their own questions.

The events of Andrew Wakefield does follow a common pattern where personal attacks are used against those that bring up inconvenient facts.

Point 57 of the claim is another similar situation not as extreme, where Dr Zimmerman was let go once he found an association between vaccinations and Autism.

Who is Dr. Andrew Wakefield?


CPR finds no evidence of Dr. Wakefield’s scientific fraud. On the contrary, many scientists and laboratories around the world have confirmed Dr. Wakefield’s findings regarding severe gastrointestinal inflammation and symptoms in a high percentage of children with autism. In its February 2, 2010 retraction, The Lancet did not allege fraud. Relying solely on the GMC proceeding, it retracted the article, asserting that the authors had not referred the patients as represented and the study team had not received the hospital’s ethics committee’s approval. The GMC’s conclusions and The Lancet’s reliance on them appear unfounded.


How disgraced anti-vaxxer Andrew Wakefield was embraced by Trump's America


There cannot be many doctors as thoroughly discredited and ostracised as Andrew Wakefield has been in the UK who are subsequently seen smiling at the inauguration ball of a US president...

At one of President Trump’s inaugural balls in January last year, he was quoted as contemplating the overthrow of the (pro-vaccine) US medical establishment in words that brought to mind Trump himself. “What we need now is a huge shakeup at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) – a huge shakeup. We need that to change dramatically.”
