Possible Immunological Disorders in Autism: Concomitant Autoimmunity
and Immune Tolerance

Maha I. Sh. Kawashti, Omnia R. Amin, Nadia G. Rowehy
Egypt J Immunol. 2006;13(1):99- 104.

Autism is a pervasive developmental disorder that affect children
early in their life. Immunological disorders is one of several
contributing factors that have been suggested to cause autism. Thirty
autistic children aged 3-6 years and thirty non-autistic
psychologically- free siblings were studied. Circulating IgA and IgG
autoantibodies to casein and gluten dietary proteins were detected by
enzyme-immunoassays (EIA). Circulating IgG antibodies to measles,
mumps and rubella vaccine (M.M.R) and cytomeglovirus were
investigated by EIA. Results revealed high seropositivity for
autoantibodies to casein and gluten: 83.3% and 50% respectively in
autistic children as compared to 10% and 6.7% positivity in the
control group. Surprisingly, circulating anti-measles, anti-mumps and
anti-rubella IgG were positive in only 50%, 73.3% and 53.3%
respectively as compared to 100% positivity in the control group.
Anti-CMV IgG was positive in 43.3% of the autistic children as
compared to 7% in the control group. It is concluded that, autoimmune
response to dietary proteins and deficient immune response to
measles, mumps and rubella vaccine antigens might be associated with
autism, as a leading cause or a resulting event. Further research is
needed to confirm these findings.

Does anyone know if this deficient immune response to MMR vaccine antigens would mean that children with autism could be suffering from some form of immunodeficiency?

Rosemary,

Scientists have known at least since 2000 that the primitive concept of simply inducing antibodies does not produce immunity. The immune system is much more complex than they thought. They now know that it consists of at least two parts; the humoral and the cellular. If one is activated the other is suppressed. This was not known when vaccination first was introduced. In view of this more recent knowledge their approach has been to try and prevent the suppression, with some ghastly outcomes. If you recall the Phase I trial of TeGenero's TGN1412 experiment last year that went horribly wrong and five young volunteers nearly died - that was a drug designed to prevent suppression of cellular immune function. LOL, when will we learn to stop playing God with the immune system, which is far more intelligent than any scientist.

In view of this knowledge it surprises me that it is still claimed vaccination produces immunity.

The following is an extract from the website of Dr Rebecca Carly who explains it much better.


"DR Rebecca Carly
What this author has realized is that bypassing this mucosal aspect of the immune system by directly injecting organisms into the body leads to a corruption in the immune system itself whereby IgA is transmuted into IgE, and/or the B cells are hyperactivated to produce pathologic amounts of self-attacking antibody as well as suppression of cytotoxic T cells

"stealth adapted". These are formed when vaccine viruses combine with viruses from tissues used to culture them, or when bacteria lose their cell walls when a person takes antibiotics and transform into "L forms", leading to a lack of some critical antigens normally recognized by the cellular immune system. Another example is stealth adapted (mutated) cytomegaloviruses which arose from African green monkey (simian) kidney cells when they were used to culture polio virus for live polio virus vaccines. Thus, not only was the vaccinee inoculated with polio, but with the cytomegalovirus as well.

The mechanism by which the immune system is corrupted can best be realized when you understand that the two poles of the immune system (the cellular and humoral mechanisms) have a reciprocal relationship in that when the activity of one pole is increased, the other must decrease. Thus, when one is stimulated, the other is inhibited. Since vaccines activate the B cells to secrete antibody, the cytotoxic (killer) T cells are subsequently suppressed.

In fact, the "prevention" of a disease via vaccination is, in reality, an inability to expel organisms due to the suppression of the cell-mediated response. Thus, rather than preventing disease, the disease is actually prevented from ever being resolved.

Thus, the autoimmune disease you develop is determined by which tissues in the body are attacked by auto antibodies. If the inside lining of the gastrointestinal tract (the mucosa) is attacked by auto-antibodies you develop leaky gut syndrome

Crohn's disease and colitis are also caused by auto-antibody attack on the mucosa of the GI tract itself.
If the islet (insulin producing) cells of the pancreas are attacked by auto-antibodies, you develop insulin dependent (juvenile) diabetes
. If the respiratory mucosa is attacked by auto-antibodies, you develop "leaky lung" syndrome where, just as with leaky gut, antigens recognized as foreign to the body which are inhaled are able to traverse the lining of the respiratory tract, causing the creation of antibodies against those antigens (usually dust, mold, pet or pollen antigens).

If the components of the articular surface of the joints are attacked by auto-antibodies, you develop rheumatoid (or juvenile) arthritis.

f the kidney tissue is attacked by auto-antibodies, you develop one of the many types of nephritis,

If you develop auto-antibodies against the very DNA in the nucleus of all cells, you develop systemic Lupus (thus, the autoimmune potential of DNA vaccines being developed now is self evident; worse yet, DNA components from these vaccines can be incorporated into your DNA, leading to actual genetic changes which could cause extinction of all (vaccinated) life on the Earth, as will be discussed shortly). And on, and on, and on.

The brain and spinal cord can also be attacked with auto-antibodies (which this author refers to as vaccine induced encephalitis), leading to a variety of neurological diseases. The most severe of these, leading to death, are sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and most cases of "shaken baby syndrome"

If components of the myelin sheath (the insulating covering of nerve fibers which allows proper nerve conduction) or the actual neurofilaments themselves are attacked by auto-antibodies, the resultant condition is determined solely by the location of the damage done. Such neurological conditions include but are not limited to minimal brain dysfunction, ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities, mental retardation, criminal behavior, the spectrum of pervasive developmental disorders (including autism), multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Lou Gehrig's disease, Guillen Barre', seizure disorders,

Molecular mimicry is due to similarity of proteins contained in organisms and mammals. (For example, the measles virus is made up of proteins similar to myelin basic protein; thus, antibodies formed against the measles virus antigens subsequently also cause an auto-antibody attack against myelin basic protein in the myelin sheath due to cross reactivity of these antibodies)."

Daily Mail Letters

Conspiracy of Silence

DR ANDREW WAKEFIELD'S findings about vaccinations causing autism in a few vulnerable infants (Mail) appear to be correct. While researching for my book A Revolutionary Review Of Modern Medicine, I found a Press report by UPI editor Dan Olmstead dated December 7, 2005.
It was titled The Age Of Autism: A Pretty Big Secret, and he wrote that Homefirst Health Services had cared for thousands of children in Chicago who had never been vaccinated, and none of them has autism.
Homefirst founder Dr Mayer Eisenstein is quoted saying: 'We have a fairly large practice. We have about 30,000 or 35,000 children that we've taken care of over the years, and I don't think we have a single case of autism in children delivered by us who have never received vaccines.'
Dr Paul Schattauer, who has worked at Homefirst for 20 years and treats 1,000 children every week, confirmed Eisenstein's observation: 'All I know is, in my practice, I don't see autism.'
He added that Homefirst's patients also have significantly less childhood asthma and juvenile diabetes compared with national (US.) statistics.
Isn't it strange that we, the public, are not allowed to read all the facts about Andrew Wakefield's work and are not given the evidence that supports his findings?
