Reassessment of the association between Guillain-Barré syndrome and receipt of swine influenza vaccine in 1976-1977 : results of a two-state study.
Although the original Centers for Disease Control study of the relation between A/New Jersey/8/76 (swine flu) vaccine and Guillain-Barré syndrome (polyradiculoneuritis) demonstrated a statistical association and suggested a causal relation between the two events, controversy has persisted.
To reassess this association, the authors obtained medical records of all previously reported adult patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome in Michigan and Minnesota from Octover 1, 1976 through January 31, 1977.
The relative risk of developing Guillain-Barré syndrome in the vaccinated population of these two states during the 6 weeks following vaccination was 7.10, comparable to the relative risk of 7.60 found in the original study.
