Can Vaccination Trigger Autoimmune Disorders? A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Current common vaccination is not the cause of any of the examined autoimmune disorders in the medium and long terms.
Vaccination in multiple sclerosis - Challenging practices (Review).
TLDR
Although there is still confusion regarding this subject, the current guidelines have clearer recommendations about vaccinations in MS patients and especially in treated MS patients.
Vaccinations and Autoimmune Diseases
TLDR
No mechanisms have been demonstrated that could explain the correlation between vaccination and the development of autoimmune diseases, and epidemiological studies do not support the hypothesis that vaccines cause systemic autoimmune diseases.
SARS-CoV-2 the ASIA virus (autoimmune/autoinflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants), the risk of infertility and vaccine hesitancy.
TLDR
The potential impact of the so-called autoimmune/autoinflammatory syndrome caused by adjuvants (ASIA) on COVID-19 vaccine uptake is discussed and proponents of the ASIA syndrome have inappropriately linked infertility to HPV vaccines and have recently suggested antigenic cross-reactivity between SARS-CoV-2 and ovarian follicles.
CURRENT PERSPECTIVES REGARDING THE IMMUNOLOGICAL INTERACTIONS BETWEEN APS AND SARS-COV-2
TLDR
The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical and immunological characteristics of patients with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) and to investigate its possible association with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Safety of Multiple Vaccinations and Durability of Vaccine-Induced Antibodies in an Italian Military Cohort 5 Years after Immunization
TLDR
The long duration of the vaccine induced anti-HAV antibodies has been confirmed, whereas the antibodies induced by tetravalent meningococcal polysaccharide vaccine have been found to persist above the threshold for putative protection for a longer time, and anti-tetanus, diphtheria, and polio 1 and 3 for a shorter time than previously estimated.
Vaccine safety issues at the turn of the 21st century
TLDR
Six key topics that have been at the centre of global discussions on vaccine safety during the early 21st century are summarized: thiomersal in multi-dose non-live vaccines, aluminium adjuvants used with several non- live vaccines, autism and auto-immune conditions as possible consequences of vaccination, a risk of immune overload with increasing numbers of vaccinations, and detrimental non-specific effects (NSEs) of vaccination.
Perspective: the nose and the stomach play a critical role in the NZACE2-Pātari* (modified ACE2) drug treatment project of SARS-CoV-2 infection
TLDR
The proposed strategy is analogous to passive immunization of viral infections such as measles and may be of particular benefit to immunodeficient and unvaccinated individuals.

Autoimmunity following Hepatitis B vaccine as part of the spectrum of ‘Autoimmune (Auto-inflammatory) Syndrome induced by Adjuvants’ (ASIA): analysis of 93 cases
TLDR
Common clinical characteristics were observed among 93 patients diagnosed with immune-mediated conditions post-HBVv, suggesting a common denominator in these diseases, and the ASIA criteria were found to be very useful among adults with post- vaccination events.
Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia following immunization with the hepatitis B vaccine: another angle of the ‘autoimmune (auto-inflammatory) syndrome induced by adjuvants’ (ASIA)
TLDR
It is suggested that in some cases CFS and FM can be temporally related to immunization, as part of ASIA syndrome, as a result of the plausible link between ASIA and CFS/FM.
Safety and efficacy of hepatitis B vaccine in systemic lupus erythematosus
TLDR
Hepatitis B vaccination was safe in inactive SLE patients with an adequate vaccine response rate and no significant change in mean SLEDAI score was detected after each dose throughout the study.
A one year followup of chronic arthritis following rubella and hepatitis B vaccination based upon analysis of the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) database.
TLDR
Adult rubella and adult hepatitis B vaccines were statistically associated with chronic arthritis which persisted for at least one year, and the etiology for these adverse reactions may involve autoimmune mechanisms.
Central nervous system demyelinating diseases and recombinant hepatitis B vaccination: a critical systematic review of scientific production
TLDR
A critical systematic review aimed at assessing whether hepatitis B vaccination increases the risk of onset or relapse of multiple sclerosis and other central nervous system demyelinating diseases concluded that on the basis of current data there is no need to modify the vaccination recommendations.
The epidemiological profile of ASIA syndrome after HPV vaccination: an evaluation based on the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting Systems
TLDR
This study presents the first systematic estimation of ASIA incidence and expands the knowledge on this pathology by carrying out an analysis of the VAERS database to retrieve all cases of suspected ASIA syndrome.
Epidemiology of autoimmune reactions induced by vaccination.
TLDR
The evidence for and against vaccination as a risk factor for AID are discussed to highlight what is known and what remains to be explored, and the type of epidemiological evidence that would be required to better address the issues.
Development of multiple sclerosis after vaccination against hepatitis B: a study based on human leucocyte antigen haplotypes.
TLDR
There was no difference in the clinical features between vaccinated and nonvaccinated MS patients, and this study supports recent reports that hepatitis B vaccination is safe in MS patients and that hepatitisB vaccination is not involved in the development of MS.
