ASIA (Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants)

ASIA is an acronym for Autoimmune/Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants, which was originally defined by Yehuda Shoenfeld.

Anti-vax folks push it as a new way to scare people away from vaccines, especially the HPV vaccine.

Parents should keep in mind that ASIA has been described as “basically a made-up syndrome that isn’t generally accepted.”

Others have stated that “there is no evidence to suggest that ASIA syndrome is a viable explanation for unusual autoimmune diseases” and that “we do not believe that it is a valid diagnosis.”
