Tetanus vaccine relationship to Guillain-Barre not determinable -- HHS proposed vaccine table rule.
TETANUS VACCINE DATA "INSUFFICIENT" TO SHOW RELATIONSHIP TO GBS, HHS finds in a proposed rule published in the Nov. 8 Federal Register. HHS departs from recommendations made by both the Institute of Medicine and the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines in its conclusion that "the scientific evidence is insufficient to accept or reject a causal relationship between vaccines containing tetanus toxoid and Guillain-Barre Syndrome." GBS is an acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy marked by an initially progressive motor paralysis.
