Are Some Cases of Autism Actually Subclinical, Congenital Attenuated Rubella Syndrome?

  • F. Edward Yazbak, MD, FAAP, found a link between mothers’ rubella susceptibility in pregnancy and their having children with autism spectrum disorders. He described 60 previously vaccinated women who were considered “rubella susceptible” during their routine prenatal OB/GYN visits. All of these women were revaccinated in the post partum period due to their not having antibodies to rubella. Each of these women could be described as having failed to seroconvert to an previous vaccination or having rubella immunity that declined over time.

     

     

     

     

  • A few ideas and questions are warranted on WHY some females may unknowingly be serving as hosts to a persistent rubella infection and why the RA27/3 vaccine strain of rubella virus might be particularly well adapted to persist undetected in females.

     

     

     

     

  • Information provided by the FDA in Appendix A on the history of the development of rubella vaccines used in the US prompts many questions about the safety of RA27/3 strain of rubella vaccine and its use in females. Per the FDA, the rubella virus used in the vaccine originated from a fetus that was aborted in 1964. It was isolated in and recovered from fetal tissue. It was attenuated through 25 passages through human fetal cells, and it is grown in human fetal cells.
