'No evidence' for MMR-autism link
There is 'no evidence' that the MMR vaccination is linked to autism, the Drug and Therapeutics Bulletin has concluded.
A review in this month's edition urges the Government to resist pressure to make
single vaccines available on the NHS, claiming this could lead to disease outbreaks.
The review of all research on MMR safety including the controversial 1998 Wakefield study that triggered the scare found no evidence for a causal link with autism or bowel disease.
'It is extremely unlikely all these studies have missed a link between MMR and autism. It is much more likely that no such link exists,' it states.
