You have got to be kidding me! I guess it was only a matter of time before this happened. Ugh.

First Vaccine to Help Control Autism Symptoms

Apr. 24, 2013 — A first-ever vaccine created by University of Guelph researchers for gut bacteria common in autistic children may also help control some autism symptoms.


The groundbreaking study by Brittany Pequegnat and Guelph chemistry professor Mario Monteiro appears this month in the journal Vaccine.

They developed a carbohydrate-based vaccine against the gut bug Clostridium bolteae.

C. bolteae is known to play a role in gastrointestinal disorders, and it often shows up in higher numbers in the GI tracts of autistic children than in those of healthy kids.

More than 90 per cent of children with autism spectrum disorders suffer from chronic, severe gastrointestinal symptoms. Of those, about 75 per cent suffer from diarrhea, according to current literature.

"Little is known about the factors that predispose autistic children to C. bolteae," said Monteiro. Although most infections are handled by some antibiotics, he said, a vaccine would improve current treatment.

"This is the first vaccine designed to control constipation and diarrhea caused by C. bolteae and perhaps control autism-related symptoms associated with this microbe," he said.

Autism cases have increased almost sixfold over the past 20 years, and scientists don't know why. Although many experts point to environmental factors, others have focused on the human gut.

Some researchers believe toxins and/or metabolites produced by gut bacteria, including C. bolteae, may be associated with symptoms and severity of autism, especially regressive autism.

Pequegnat, a master's student, and Monteiro used bacteria grown by Mike Toh, a Guelph PhD student in the lab of microbiology professor Emma Allen-Vercoe.

The new anti- C. bolteae vaccine targets the specific complex polysaccharides, or carbohydrates, on the surface of the bug.

The vaccine effectively raised C. bolteae-specific antibodies in rabbits. Doctors could also use the vaccine-induced antibodies to quickly detect the bug in a clinical setting, said Monteiro.

The vaccine might take more than 10 years to work through preclinical and human trials, and it may take even longer before a drug is ready for market, Monteiro said.

"But this is a significant first step in the design of a multivalent vaccine against several autism-related gut bacteria," he said.

Monteiro has studied sugar-based vaccines for two other gastric pathogens: Campylobacter jejuni, which causes travellers' diarrhea; and Clostridium difficile, which causes antibiotic-associated diarrhea.

The research was supported by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council.

I found that this amusing, too:

Go on!  Eat what you want in 3rd world countries--we have a shot for that!

So "Little is known about the factors that predispose autistic children to C. bolteae," said Monteiro. And THIS is the part they should be focusing on! Finding out what CAUSES it, but instead as usual, they just want to throw another synthetic drug at it and not bother with the root of the problem. "The vaccine might take more than 10 years to work through preclinical and human trials," -this is the part which means they will experiment further on our children and sadly many sheeples will line thier children up to be the sacrificial lambs. I wonder which concoction of toxins they will add to this vaccine? MOre mercury? More aluminum? Maybe they will try uranium this time and see how children react to THAT. They've already thrown jsut about everything else at them. Ten years before it hits the market? I doubt it will take that long once they realize how much profit they can make off it. They will be paying people off left and right. If it does take ten years, then I guess that means that the powers that be are resigned to the fact that AUTISM (which is really post-vaccinal toxic encephalitis) is here to stay. Since the numbers are now 1:50 fully vaccinated children, what do you think the numbers will be in TEN YEARS if the doctors, scientists, and politicians keep playing BAT ____ STUPID/DUMB? All children will be autistic, and then they will have the population they desired- drones to do their meaningless mindless work but controlled through drugs while the 1 percent enjoys "Democracy and freedom."

so they first deny kids with autism have gut problems, and now they're saying they do and have now created a vaccine for it?  smh

So let's fix something by doing what may have caused the problem in the first place. Gahhhhhhhhhhh
