[IP] Vaccines and IDDM

Yes, DPT, MMR and noe Hep B are associated with auto immune diseases but
these are not a cause just a reason for your immune system to act up on its
own and you have to be immunologically poised to get IDDM. generally this is
related to the antigens on your lymphocytes (HLA type). You could also get
IDDM from a case of mumps or measles or Coxackie B virus infection. But
obviously most people get these illnesses and don't get IDDM. Another
suspect is Mengo virus, a pug virus that humans can acquire. Until we
understand more about the immune triggering process we'll be away from a
vaccine or prevention for IDDM. Why is IDDM so prevalent in Finland?
