The researchers investigated 125 autistic children by analyzing their antibody assays using immunoblotting methods. A majority of the autistic children (60 percent) showed something very medically concerning going on inside their blood, something that did not show up at all in the blood of 92 control children in the study.
The immunoblotting analysis revealed the presence of an unusual MMR antibody. This antibody is spurred into existence by the MMR vaccine. It specifically detects a protein of 73-75 kD from the virus particles in the MMR vaccine. The targeted protein band contained measles hemagglutinin (HA) protein but did not contain a measles nucleoprotein or any proteins for rubella or mumps viruses.
In over 90 percent of the cases, the researchers identified a measles antibody-positive autistic serum that was also positive for myelin basic protein auto antibodies, suggesting a strong association between MMR vaccines and the development of central nervous system autoimmunity. The researchers suggest that the evidence strongly supports that the measles component of the MMR vaccine is related to the pathogenesis of autoimmune issues and the onset of neurodevelopment disorders such as autism.
