CDC statement on narcolepsy following Pandemrix influenza vaccination in Europe
An increased risk of narcolepsy was found following vaccination with Pandemrix, a monovalent 2009 H1N1 influenza vaccine that was used in several European countries during the H1N1 influenza pandemic. Narcolepsy is a chronic neurological disorder caused by the brain’s inability to regulate sleep-wake cycles normally. This risk was initially found in Finland, and then some other European countries also detected an association. Most recently, scientists at the United Kingdom’s (UK) Health Protection Agency (HPA) have found evidence of an association between Pandemrix and narcolepsy in children in England. The findings are consistent with studies from Finland and other countries.
Pandemrix is manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline in Europe and was specifically produced for pandemic 2009 H1N1 influenza. It was not used before 2009, and has not been used since the influenza pandemic season (2009-2010). It contains an oil-in-water emulsion adjuvantcalled ASO3. Adjuvants are substances added to a vaccine to increase the body’s immune response to that vaccine.
Pandemrix was not licensed for use in the United States. In fact, no adjuvanted influenza vaccines are licensed in the United States, and no adjuvanted influenza vaccines were used in the United States during the influenza pandemic or in any other influenza season.
Did swine flu jabs give scores of children a crippling sleeping sickness? Chloe and Sam are two of 100 Britons thought to have developed narcolepsy after having injection
For Chloe has been diagnosed with narcolepsy — a rare disorder that affects the brain’s ability to regulate the normal sleep-wake cycle.
It was brought on, she believes, by her being given the Pandemrix vaccine in 2009 to inoculate against swine flu.
