2nd Vaccine Conference

www.testfoundation.org [cached]

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. He suggested that an immune insult, such as a natural infection or vaccination, causes "nicks" in the developing myelin sheath. In his viewpoint, up to 80 percent, and possibly all, cases of autism are caused by abnormal immune reactions. Singh believes that autism can be treated successfully with drug therapies used for treating other autoimmune diseases. He 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. For additional information on Singh's work, see his paper "Autism, Autoimmunity and Immunotherapy" at lib.tcu.edu/www/staff/lruede/singhfeature. See also his testimony at the Congressional Committee on Government Reform's hearings on autism, April 6, 2000, at www.house.gov/reform/hearings/healthcare/00.06.04/singh.htm. Megson agrees with Singh that autism is both a neuroimmune and autoimmune disorder.

The team led by Dr Vijendra Singh analysed blood samples from 125 autistic children and 92 children who did not have the disorder.
Dr Singh has suggested that an abnormal immune response may be the root cause of many cases of autism. Dr Singh's team, who worked at Utah State University in the U.S., report their findings in the latest issue of the Journal of Biomedical Science. They say: 'Stemming from this evidence, we suggest that an inappropriate antibody response to MMR, specifically the measles component thereof, might be related to pathogenesis of autism.' Dr Singh, an acknowledged expert in his field with more than 20 years experience of immunology research, has previously published work indicating a link between MMR and autism.

Vijendra Singh, Ph.D.
Research Associate Professor, Utah State University Biotechnology Center Vijendra K. Singh, Ph.D., is a Research Associate Professor at Utah State University. He has over 20 years of experience in neurobiology and immunology research, beginning at the Children's Hospital in Vancouver. After moving to the United States, Dr. Singh continued his research on central nervous system disorders, particularly infantile autism and Alzheimer's disease, with a special focus on autoimmunity in autism, at the University of Michigan. Dr. Singh has authored more than 100 scientific publications and made numerous presentations at conferences worldwide. He is considered a pioneer in his field and an international authority on autoimmunity and autism. He serves on the scientific board of the Autism Autoimmunity Project, New Jersey. Dr. Singh, how did your interest in immune response and the nervous system develop? To that end, I recently completed a review article that may be of some interest: "Immunotherapy for Brain Diseases and Mental Illnesses " (V. K. Singh, Progress in Drug Research , vol. 48, pp 129-146, 1997; Monograph Series). Vijendra K.
