ProQuad - MMR+Varicella - every ingredient is causing allergies

Every single listed ingredient causes problems. How many diseases are being caused by the body's natural immune response to a vaccine ingredient?

ProQuad is a vaccine indicated for active immunization for the prevention of measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella in children 12 months through 12 years of age.

bovine serum Most children with beef allergy are also allergic to cow's milk and should avoid the consumption of dairy products. Sensitization to bovine serum albumin is a marker of cow's milk allergy in children with beef allergy. -

Findings in epidemiology and animal experimentation suggest that autoimmunity in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) may be triggered by dietary cow-milk protein, particularly bovine serum albumin (BSA).
chick embryo cell culture               Hens’ egg (HE) allergy is common in infancy and childhood (±2%), but the majority of children become clinically tolerant by the time they start school. Of concern is the whether the recommended immunisation schedule should be followed in children with a possible/proven HE allergy. The overall incidence of anaphylaxis from all vaccines is less than 1 per million doses. Most cases of anaphylaxis occur in HE-allergic children. ...The MMR is produced in fibroblast cells derived from a chick embryo and thus does not contain any significant egg protein.
human albumin ?The etiology of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) is unknown, but the autoimmune nature of the process leading to j3-cell destruction is widely acknowledged (1). In humans, much of IDDM susceptibility is associated with particular human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DQ molecules (2).

D.S. was admitted to our hospital at 6 months of age because of the appearance, two weeks before, of bilateral periorbital oedema associated with hypoalbuminemia (albumin 0.5 g/dl), hypoprotidemia (seric proteins 3.7 g/dl), proteinuria (proteinuria/creatinuria ratio 114,3) and dyslipidemia (total cholesterolemia 287 mg/dl, LDL-cholesterol 165 mg/dl, triglycerides 997 mg/dl). The diagnosis of nephrotic syndrome was established and a substitutive therapy including human albumin was immediately started, as well as calcium and potassium supplementation, diuretics and intravenous immunoglobulines. After a few days albumin levels further decreased, general conditions became more serious and subcutaneous succulence spread especially in abdominal, scrotal and palpebral regions.

Scleroderma/systemic sclerosis. An autoimmune disease characterized by abnormal growth of connective tissue in the skin and blood vessels. In more severe forms, connective tissue can build up in the kidneys, lungs, heart, and gastrointestinal tract, leading in some cases to organ failure. -

a child with systemic sclerosis may also develop problems with internal organs (such as the kidneys, heart, lungs and gastrointestinal tract). Children with systemic sclerosis have more widespread skin changes that can result in limited joint movement. -
hydrolyzed gelatin All gelatin contained in vaccines is porcine in origin. Studies in Japan confirmed the findings of Kelso and colleagues that severe allergic reactions to MMR vaccine were associated with the presence of antibodies in the blood directed against gelatin. Although the incidence of anaphylaxis to gelatin is extremely low (about one case per 2 million doses), gelatin is the most common identifiable cause of severe allergic reactions to vaccines. -
monosodium L-glutamate The epidemiological studies done in the United States in the 1970s suggest that 25% to 30% of the population was intolerant of monosodium glutamate at levels then found in food. Considering the expanded use of monosodium glutamate and other MSG-containing food additives since that time, we conservatively estimate that approximately 40% of the U.S. population presently react adversely to MSG.
potassium chloride Allergic reactions to potassium chloride are rare but can be potentially deadly.
potassium phosphate dibasic You should not be given Sterile Potassium Phosphate Solution if: • you are allergic (hypersensitive) to potassium or phosphate or any of the other ingredients of this medicine, listed in section 6 of this leaflet. • you have too much phosphat

sodium chloride Here, we present a 37-year-old woman who developed an anaphylactic reaction to normal saline infusion during evaluation for her acute abdominal pain -
sorbitol I was misdiagnosed with IBS for 8 years due to a Sorbitol allergy

Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur while taking sorbitol: Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); continuing constipation; dizziness; rectal bleeding; sudden weight gain; unusual swelling; vomiting; weakness.
sucrose symptoms of sucrose intolerance usually improve as the affected child ages. Disaccharide intolerance I is inherited as an autosomal recessive genetic trait. -
