Study destroys link between vaccination and autism

According to the researchers, the findings are in line with previous studies.

"The study strongly supports that MMR vaccination does not increase the risk for autism, does not trigger autism in susceptible children, and is not associated with clustering of autism cases after vaccination", the authors from the Statens Serum Institut in Copenhagen conclude in their paper.

The false link between the MMR vaccine and autism continued to cause concern and challenge vaccine uptake. These individuals, more commonly known as anti-vaxxers, are drawing criticism at a time when there is a concerning increase in measles cases in Europe and the US.

Among the 657,461 children included in the analysis, 6,517 were diagnosed with autism over the next decade.

Associate Professor Helen Leonard from Perth's Telethon Kids Institute said it was an important study based on registry data on over 650,000 Danish children to see if the MMR vaccine was linked to an increased likelihood of an autism diagnosis.

The virus can live for up to two hours on surfaces where an infected person coughs or sneezes. They followed kids from age one through the end of August 2013. This may seem to be in malice because of the dangers of not vaccinating imposes, but this is not the case.

Boys were four times more likely to be diagnosed with autism than girls, the study found. But there was no overall increased risk for the developmental disorder among those who received the MMR vaccine when compared with those who had not gotten the vaccine, the researchers found.

Early symptoms of autism can vary but may include repetitive behaviors like hand flapping or body rocking, extreme resistance to changes in routine, and sometimes aggression or self-injury. He hopes the latest piece of evidence will reassure families with young children at risk of developing autism spectrum disorder that the vaccine will not increase that risk.

"The idea that vaccines cause autism is still around despite our original and other well-conducted studies", Hviid wrote in an email. "Even in the face of substantial and increasing evidence against an MMR-autism association, the discussion around the potential link has contributed to vaccine hesitancy".
