  • Narcolepsy Link Raised Fears that Swine Flu Vaccine Might Up Risks for Other Autoimmune Diseases But Study Finds No Connection to Type 1 Diabetes

    There has been a fear that the swine flu vaccine, Pandemrix, would increase the risk of autoimmune diseases other than narcolepsy. However, a new study of children from Sweden and Finland shows that the vaccine increased neither the risk of developing autoantibodies against insulin-producing beta cells nor the occurrence of type 1 diabetes.
    “On the contrary, the risk was reduced among vaccinated children in Finland, which is something we will now investigate further,” says Helena Elding Larsson, MD, PhD, researcher at Lund University and physician at Skåne University Hospital, who conducted the study.
