First Medical Textbook on Research Linking Vaccines to Autoimmunity

With the discovery of autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA), the work of leading researchers from 14 countries on the role of adjuvants in different vaccines and how they can induce diverse autoimmune clinical manifestations in genetically prone individuals has been published in the newly released medical textbook, Vaccines and Autoimmunity.

The textbook, which is intended for advanced students and researchers working in pathogenic and epidemiological studies , was edited by Yehuda Shoenfeld, Nancy Agmon-Levin and Lucija Tomljenovic , and published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Copies of Vaccines and Autoimmunity can be ordered new online for $159.20 here.

New Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvant (ASIA) Registry Created

Clinicians worldwide are invited to submit information to a first-of-its-kind registry for ASIA cases that has been created by the editor of Autoimmunity News, Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld, MD, FRCP of Tel-Aviv University and Dr. Ricard Cervera, MD, PhD, FRCP of the Hospital Clinic, Barcelona.  This registry will enable researchers to analyze thousands of global cases of ASIA. Data from patient questionnaires in the registry will provide a resource for researchers to: 1) compare clinical manifestations, 2) discover common instigators, and 3) compare the efficacy of treatments.

To submit a case in the registry, please contact:
