OBJECTIVE. The US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a passive reporting system to which anyone can report an event. Publicity related to potential adverse events may change reporting patterns. The objective of this paper is to show how litigation-related reports have influenced the trends in possible adverse event reports to VAERS. METHODS. The VAERS public-use data files were downloaded in July 2004 and translated into identical SAS data sets for analysis. Cases that were… Expand

Paper Mentions

Effect of Lawyer-Submitted Reports on Signals of Disproportional Reporting in the Food and Drug Administration’s Adverse Event Reporting System
TLDR
Inclusion of lawyer-submitted reports in FAERS did not meaningfully distort known safety signals for two drugs subject to high-profile tort litigation for other AEs. Expand
Vaccines are not associated with autism: an evidence-based meta-analysis of case-control and cohort studies.
TLDR
A meta-analysis suggests that vaccinations are not associated with the development of autism or autism spectrum disorder and the components of the vaccines (thimerosal or mercury) or multiple vaccines (MMR) are not related to this topic. Expand
accines are not associated with autism : An evidence-based eta-analysis of case-control and cohort studies uke
There has been enormous debate regarding the possibility of a link between childhood vaccinations and the subsequent development of autism. This has in recent times become a major public health issueExpand
Active surveillance for adverse events following immunization
TLDR
The role of improved causality assessment in AEFI surveillance is discussed, with its important role in determining whether a temporal association may have occurred by chance alone. Expand
A Two-Phase Case-Control Study of Autism Risk Among Children Born From the Late 1990s Through the Early 2000s in the United States

  • 2016
TLDR
The risk of autism during from the late1990s to early 2000s in the US significantly decreased with reductions in Hg exposure from Thimerosal-containing childhood vaccines, but future studies should examine this phenomenon in other US populations. Expand
The Controversy That Will Not Go Away: Vaccines and Autism
It is generally accepted that the number of new autism diagnoses is increasing. It is unclear whether this is due to a true increase in cases, increasing awareness of autism spectrum disordersExpand
Alleged isotretinoin-associated inflammatory bowel disease: disproportionate reporting by attorneys to the Food and Drug Administration Adverse Event Reporting System.
TLDR
Attorney-initiated reports inflate the pharmacovigilance signal of isotretinoin-associated IBD in the Food and Drug Administration Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS). Expand
Invasive and in situ cervical cancer reported to the vaccine adverse event reporting system (VAERS).
TLDR
The objective of this study was to identify and review VAERS reports of invasive and in situ cervical cancer in women immunized with the quadrivalent HPV vaccine. Expand
Adverse events following HPV vaccination, Alberta 2006-2014.
TLDR
Rates of AEFI after HPV immunization in Alberta are low and consistent with types of events seen elsewhere. Expand

TLDR
The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System is useful in detecting adverse events related to vaccines and most recently was used for enhanced reporting of adverse events in the national smallpox immunization campaign. Expand

TLDR
This report summarizes the adverse events reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) from January 1, 1991, through December 31, 2001, and indicates that the most commonly reported adverse event was fever, which appeared in 25.8% of all reports. Expand

Data mining in the US Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS): early detection of intussusception and other events after rotavirus vaccination.
TLDR
The utility of data mining to detect significant vaccine-associated events at early date is demonstrated and data mining appears to be an efficient and effective computer-based program that may enhance early detection of adverse events in passive surveillance systems. Expand

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).
TLDR
The post-marketing surveillance for such events in the USA in response to the mandatory reporting requirements of the National Childhood Injury Act of 1986 means VAERS can play an important role in helping to monitor vaccine safety and maintain public confidence in immunizations. Expand
Infant Immunization With Acellular Pertussis Vaccines in the United States: Assessment of the First Two Years' Data From the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS)
TLDR
VAERS data, although subject to the limitations of passive surveillance, support the prelicensure data with regard to the safety of the US-licensed acellular pertussis vaccines that were evaluated. Expand
An assessment of the impact of thimerosal on childhood neurodevelopmental disorders
TLDR
The evidence presented here shows that the occurrence of neurodevelopmental disorders following thimerosal-containing childhood vaccines does not appear to be coincidental. Expand
Neurodevelopmental Disorders after Thimerosal-Containing Vaccines: A Brief Communication
TLDR
An association between neurodevelopmental disorders and thimerosal-containing DTaP vaccines was found, but additional studies should be conducted to confirm and extend this study. Expand

TLDR
There was a close correlation between mercury doses from thimerosal--containing childhood vaccines and the prevalence of autism from the late 1980s through the mid-1990s and additional research be undertaken to produce a MMR vaccine with an improved safety profile. Expand
