Study on link between MMR vaccine and autism redacted from publication

August 28, 2014

A recently published study that assessed timing of measles-mumps-rubella vaccination and autism among young black boys has been removed from the public domain, according to a statement from Translational Neurodegeneration.

The study, penned by Brian S. Hooker, PhD, PE, a biochemical engineer at Simpson University in Redding, Calif., found that young black boys who received the MMR vaccine before age 24 months had an increased risk for autism diagnosis. Hooker used data from a previous study conducted by the CDC, which found no association between age at MMR vaccination and autism diagnosis among children.
