The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship
between autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and general vaccinations,
including measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, in Japanese subjects, a
population with high genetic homogeneity.
Conclusions: In this study, there were not any convincing
evidences that MMR vaccination and increasing the number of vaccine
injections were associated with an increased risk of ASD in a
genetically homogeneous population.
