In addition, the evidence shows that vaccines do not cause several conditions. Also, the DTaP vaccine is not associated with diabetes and the influenza vaccine given as a shot does not exacerbate asthma. It finds that while no vaccine is 100 percent safe, very few adverse events are shown to be caused by vaccines.

Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) charged the Institute of Medicine (IOM) with providing a thorough review of the current medical and scientific evidence on vaccines and vaccine adverse events. The U.S. The IOM Committee on Vaccines and Adverse Events released its report, " Adverse Effects of Vaccines: Evidence and Causality " on August 25, 2011. This analysis will be used to update the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program’s (VICP) Vaccine Injury Table (VIT) and provide scientific basis for future review and decisions on VICP claims.

The last one was published in 1994. Top of page. The findings indicate that these vaccines are generally very safe and that serious adverse events are quite rare. There are no recommendations in this report, and the report does not address the benefits of vaccination. The IOM has conducted two similar extensive reviews in the past.

The IOM Committee used peer reviewed literature to review eight vaccines given to children or adults:

Adverse effects of homeopathy a systematic review of published

Adverse effects of homeopathy: a systematic review of published case reports and case series. Posadzki P, Alotaibi A, Ernst E. Comment in Int J Clin Pract.

Five electronic databases were searched to identify all relevant case reports and case series.

The aim of this systematic review was to critically evaluate the evidence regarding the adverse effects (AEs) of homeopathy.

Overall, AEs ranged from mild-to-severe and included four fatalities. Rhus toxidendron was the most frequently implicated homeopathic remedy. The most common AEs were allergic reactions and intoxications. The total number of patients who experienced AEs of homeopathy amounted to 1159. In total, 38 primary reports met our inclusion criteria. Of those, 30 pertained to direct AEs of homeopathic remedies; and eight were related to AEs caused by the substitution of conventional medicine with homeopathy.

Clinicians should be aware of its risks and advise their patients accordingly. Homeopathy has the potential to harm patients and consumers in both direct and indirect ways.
