PROOF: Monkey study reported significantly slower reaction times on learning test for 2008 series group than controls
By: Eric, on 11 Jan 2016


Although the overall tenor of the discussion in this paper was to argue that it exonerated Thimerosal containing vaccines, and a breakdown of the data into groups was not published for most of the experiments, and the word "aluminum" does not appear in the report, the group getting the 2008 vaccine series presumably was injected with the aluminum in the 2008 vaccine series. Because there was not a breakdown into groups on most of the tests, its not possible to say too much about the effects of the aluminum, but the paper does report regarding the Learning test: "The TCV [Thimerosal containing vaccine] group had the slowest overall reaction times and was significantly slower than the control group (mean difference, 1.83; 95% CI: 0.96, 2.69). The 2008 group also had reaction times significantly slower than the control group (mean difference, 0.91; 95% CI: 0.12, 1.70)." Incidentally, clearly the key question that needs to be addressed first is whether the vaccine series is doing damage to the recipients. Therefor it is unclear why the limited experimental resources were divided into 6 different groups, rather than 2: a control group and a group receiving the current series.
