Autism Omnibus Proceedings

The Autism Omnibus Proceedings were formed in 2002 by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to consolidate about 5,000 claims from parents that vaccines caused their children to have autism.

A series of test cases were used for theories that autism could be caused by:

  1. thimerosal-containing vaccines, in combination with the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine
  2. thimerosal-containing vaccines; or
  3. the MMR vaccine

Three test cases were to be heard in the Autism Omnibus Proceedings for each theory, but the cases ended after it was found that neither of the first two theories could contribute to or cause autism.
