Reuters reports that GlaxoSmithKline’s Pandemrix H1N1 swine flu vaccine has caused 800 cases of narcolepsy in children. Taking under-reporting into account, this could amount to between at least 5,600 cases or a figure around up to 40,000 in the countries concerned. Cases have been recorded in children from Sweden, Finland, Norway, Ireland and France. Narcolepsy is a serious condition which can debilitate a child for life. Sufferers can fall asleep on the spot any time without warning.
To gain an idea of the potential extent of this adverse reaction in children caused by this vaccine and to adjust for under-reporting it is necessary to multiply by up to 50 times. [Under-reporting in all drugs and not just vaccines is 98 in every 100 adverse reactions – hence multiply by 50: Spontaneous adverse drug reaction reporting vs event monitoring: a comparison: Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine Volume 84 June 1991 341.]
