Temporal Association of Certain Neuropsychiatric Disorders Following Vaccination of Children and Adolescents: A Pilot Case–Control Study. January 2017
This study used an interesting approach: it identified newly diagnosed cases of neuropsychiatric disorders from private medical insurance claims data in the US. It then looked to see whether the individuals concerned had received a vaccination in the preceding months. Individuals diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (in particular) were more likely to have received a vaccination in the 3-12months leading up to the diagnosis, than control participants. This does not imply a causal relationship between vaccinations and these neuropsychiatric disorders but does suggest that further investigation of this could be important to understanding whether vaccinations might play a causal role for a particular sub-group of individuals.
