A recent study published in the Journal Pediatrics says, immunization (vaccination) complete in children at the age of one day up to the first two years of life, do not pose a risk to the disease of autism. This information is written She Knows from CNN.
Currently there are negative discourse, related to vaccine administration to children. Most newspapers say, immunization contributes to an increased risk of autism. As a result, many parents who are concerned give their full immunization in children.
"Attention on about vaccines have become a very significant issue. Many parents today are deciding to delay or avoid a vaccine. There has been anxiety when parents are concerned about whether vaccine is associated with autism, they choose not to vaccinate their children, "said Geraldine Dawson, chief science officer at Autism Speaks, told TIME.
Meanwhile, in the present study carried out observations of the vaccine into the body of 256 children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and 752 children without autism disorder.
They were born between 1994 and 1999. Researchers calculate how much vaccine is given and recorded the amount of antigen in the vaccine for three different time periods. Ie, birth to age three months, from birth until the age of seven months, and from birth to the first two years of life.
"When we compared them about 250 children with ASD and 750 children who did not have ASD, we find their antigen exposure, as measured, is the same," said Dr. Frank DeStefano, who is also director of research leaders Immunization Safety Office at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
"There is no relationship between antigenic exposure and development of autism," said DeStefano.
