GlaxoSmithKline’s New Vaccine Linked to Convulsions, Death

Posted under Uncategorized

A review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which is the process of deciding whether or not to approve GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)’s new rotovirus vaccine, Rotarix, has shown an increased risk of convulsions and death through pneumonia with use of Rotarix as compared to a placebo.

The rotovirus is the leading cause of dehydration and severe diarrhea in young children and infants.
