"V. Singh,MDM, a specialist from Utah State who has studied over 400 cases of autism, found that these children had experienced an autoimmune episode, in which their own bodies had been made to attack the linings of their nervous systems. Dr. Singh characterized the epidemic as a "hyperimmune response to the measles virus." He stated that 55% of the families said that autism appeared soon after an MMR shot, and that 33% of families said it appeared soon after a DPT shot. Such neurologic damage is a well-established side-effect of the mercury, aluminum, and formaldehyde used in these vaccines."---Tim O'Shea, DC

IMMUNE RESPONSE TO BRAIN MYELIN IN AUTISTIC CHILDREN by Vijendra K. Singh, Reed P. Warren, Dennis Odell Utah State University, July 1992

"In 1993 Vijendra Singh, PhD University of Illinois, published a study in which they found antibodies to myelin basic protein in 50 to 60% of autistic children tested. Recently at a public meeting Dr. Singh presented information on an unpublished, preliminary study of 27 autistic children in which he found nearly 50% correlation between MMR antibodies and antibodies to myelin basic protein in serum drawn from the children.   Dr. Singh emphasized that this study was very preliminary and that no conclusions could be drawn from it. However, it does raise a higher index of suspicion that the MMR vaccine may result in encephalitis and its various complications on a fairly large scale."---Harold Buttram.

V. K. Singh's "Immunotherapy for Brain Diseases and Mental Illnesses"   (Progress in Drug Research), vol. 48, 1997, pp. 129-146) is a lengthy article addressing the rationale for immunotherapy in brain diseases and possible applications of specific immunological therapies in Multiple sclerosis; Guillain-Barre syndrome; Rasmussen's encephalitis; Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD); Alzheimer's disease; and Autistic syndrome.  The introduction to this article notes the growing comprehension among scientists of the reciprocal relationship between the nervous and immune systems, categorizes the various diseases of the nervous system, and observes that nearly all central nervous system diseases respond to immunotherapy.
