UBC researchers pull paper linking vaccine component to autism

CBC reported that researchers from UBC are retracting their scientific paper linking aluminum in vaccines to autism in mice, because one of the co-authors claims figures published in the study were deliberately altered before publication.

Chris Shaw, a professor at UBC’s department of ophthalmology, said he and the lab ran their own analysis of the figures in question after seeing allegations from PubPeer.
