Hemophilus Meningitis Vaccine Proven to Cause Diabetes in Clinical Trial of Over 100,000 Children; Many Diabetics Eligible for Compensation

BALTIMORE, July 31 /PRNewswire/ -- The prestigious peer reviewed journal
Autoimmunity published data this week by Dr. J. Bart Classen, an immunologist
at Classen Immunotherapies, and David Carey Classen, an infectious disease
specialist at the University of Utah, proving a causal relationship between the
hemophilus vaccine and the development of insulin dependent diabetes.  The data
is particularly disturbing because it indicates the risks of the vaccine
exceeds the benefit.  The findings are expected to allow may diabetics to
receive compensation for their injuries and lead to safer immunization.

The study followed over 100,000 children which had been randomized in a large
clinical trial to receive 1 or 4 doses of the hemophilus vaccine and over
100,000 unvaccinated children.  After 7 years the group receiving 4 doses of
the vaccine had a statistically significant 26% elevated rate of diabetes, or
an extra 54 cases/100,000 children, compared to children who did not receive
the vaccine.  By contrast immunization against hemophilus is expected to
prevent only 7 deaths and 7 to 26 cases of permanent disability per 100,000
children immunized.  The study showed that almost all of the extra cases of
diabetes caused by the vaccine occurred between 3-4 years after vaccination.
Furthermore the paper provides new data proving the vaccine causes diabetes in
mice and reviews data from 3 smaller human studies, which all had similar
results to the current study, but were too small to reach statistical

"Our results conclusively prove there is a causal relationship between
immunization schedules and diabetes.  We believe immunization schedules can be
made safer," stated Dr. Bart Classen.

The Classens' research is already becoming widely accepted.  An independent
group of researchers working at a prestigious Swedish medical center recently
published a paper (Ann. N.Y. Acad Sci.  958: 293-296, 2002) supporting their
findings.  Last year doctors attending a conference of the American College for
Advancement in Medicine overwhelmingly agreed that vaccines can cause chronic
diseases such as diabetes.  For the latest information on the effects of
