Non-linear dose-response of aluminium hydroxide adjuvant particles: Selective low dose neurotoxicity
This study is published in a reputable journal and effectively says that aluminium adjuvants in vaccines have neurotoxic effects at low doses when injected in mice. The mice who had higher doses had no such effects, raising all sorts of questions about the current assumptions on the safety of aluminium adjuvants. "As a possible consequence, comparing vaccine adjuvant exposure to other non- relevant aluminium exposures, e.g. soluble aluminium and other routes of exposure, may not represent valid approaches." "In the context of massive development of vaccine-based strategies worldwide, the present study may suggest that aluminium adjuvant toxicokinetics and safety require reevaluation."
