2nd Vaccine Conference
Vijendra Singh, PhD, research associate professor of immunology at Utah State University, is an internationally recognized authority on autism, autoimmunity, and immunotherapeutic approaches to treating autism.
He spoke on "Deciphering the Link between Vaccines and Autoimmune Autism."
Singh's neuroautoimmunity model of autism hypothesizes that an autoimmune reaction in brain structures, in particular the myelin sheath, plays a critical role in causing the neurological impairments in children with autism.
suggested that an immune insult, such as a natural infection or vaccination, causes "nicks" in the developing myelin sheath.
viewpoint, up to 80 percent, and possibly all, cases of autism are caused by abnormal immune reactions.
believes that autism can be treated successfully with drug therapies used for treating other autoimmune diseases.
also believes that it is important to recognize autism as an autoimmune disease, since the vaccine manufacturers place warnings on their products saying that vaccines should not be given to children with challenged immune systems.
Because autism, according to Singh's research
, is an autoimmune disease, "It would be a piece of cake for national governments to fund a test that would detect the genetic and other predisposing markers for autism before administering vaccines to children.

Megson agrees with Singh
that autism is both a neuroimmune and autoimmune disorder.
