ARLINGTON, Va., Sept.  11 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr.  J.  Bart Classen, an
immunologist at Classen Immunotherapies, presented data yesterday at the
International Public Conference on Vaccination which proved vaccines are
the largest cause of Insulin Dependent Diabetes in Children.  His data
indicated that vaccines cause approximately 80% of cases of insulin
dependent diabetes in children who have received multiple vaccines
starting after 2 months of life.

Dr.  Classen presented data supporting a causal relationship between
many different vaccines and the development of insulin diabetes.  His
data included the pertussis, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, hemophilus
influenza and others.  The data indicated people with vaccine-induced
diabetes may not develop the disease until 4 or more years after
receiving a vaccine.

Lawyers attending the conference and who reviewed the data, advise
diabetics to seek legal counsel at once.  The government provides
compensation for vaccine-induced injuries, however there is a statute of
limitations.  Insulin dependent diabetes costs the patient about $1
million over their lifetime.

Dr.  Classen's research has been published in numerous journals and
featured in national news reports.  For the latest information on the
effects of vaccines on insulin dependent diabetes and other autoimmune
