Exactly 10 years ago, our dear grandson was admitted to the Royal Free for evaluation and treatment.
His colonoscopy findings were typical of autistic enterocolitis and his biopsy was positive for the presence of measles virus genomic RNA.
His first regression had occurred shortly after his first MMR and his second more serious regression followed his MMR booster after a period of relative improvement.
Such a challenge-dechallenge-rechallenge course has been accepted as ample proof of causation by an Institute of Medicine Committee and by US Courts.
The pediatric vaccines our grandson received during the first year of life contained the full load of Thimerosal injected into infants in 1993-1994.
The care our grandson received at the Royal Free was phenomenal. We will forever be grateful to Dr. Wakefield for including him in his research program and to Professor Simon Murch, his pediatric gastro-enterologist, for the excellent care he provided him at all times.
During the many visits to the hospital, we had the privilege to meet Professor Walker-Smith and be impressed by his emormous knowledge and kindness.
The GMC hearings that have been going on will go down as the most outrageous event in the history of British Medicine.It is time they end with full vindication of these three outstanding physicians and human beings.
