"The historical facts: Deaths from measles in 1900 were 13 per 100,000
people in a population. In 1948, less than one. The measles vaccine was
introduced in 1963. Deaths from scarlet fever in 1912 were 12 per
100,000 people in a population. In 1948, less than one. There wasn't a
vaccine for scarlet fever. Deaths from childhood disease in 1900 were
75.4 per 100,000. In 1950, the deaths from childhood diseases were 1.7.
The source of these figures is Dr. Morris Fishbein from 1958. Fishbein
was editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association."

Autoantibodies to cerebellum in children with autism associate with behavior
"Plasma autoantibodies for 45 kDa cerebellar protein associate with an
autism diagnosis. - Plasma autoantibodies for 62 kDa protein associate
with broader diagnosis of ASD. - Children with autoantibodies had worse
behavioral scores than children without them. - Few familial
associations found for brain-targeted antibodies in children and
mothers. - Antibodies may be markers for specific behavioral
characteristics of autism."

real, lasting change. Firstly in the summer, a diarrhoea-fighting
rotavirus vaccination plan in Zambia, run alongside CIDRZ (Centre for
Infectious Disease Research in Zambia), will begin in earnest. This

Choose Darwin over Dickens
"From evolution and climate change to GM crops and the MMR vaccine,
columnists and passers-by holler their opinions, even if the facts at
their fingertips are scant or fictional. Otherwise intelligent
commentators feel entitled to forthright opinions on the latest science
story of the day, because if they are smart enough to critique The
Brothers Karamazov, then they can hold their own on dark energy or
vaccinations. But while a minority opinion on the role of God and free
will in Dostoevsky harms no one, ill-informed anti-vaccination
posturing can lead to epidemics and death."

Joint Pain in Children: Is It Just a Sore Knee, or Could It Be Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis? While
lab tests and imaging can sometimes help diagnose juvenile idiopathic
arthritis (JIA), a physical examination and thorough patient history
are the most valuable tools in identifying this disease. According to a
new literature review from the Journal of the American Academy of
Orthopaedic Surgeons (JAAOS), the rate of false positives in laboratory
evaluations and imaging studies meant to screen for juvenile arthritis
makes their value limited.
