Dr. Halsey's presentation at the National Vaccine Advisory Committee Workshop on Thimerosal and Vaccines held in Bethesda, Maryland on August 11-12, 1999.

Slide 13 of 26
    Slide Notes:

    Dr. Lucier has summarized several possible explanations for the differences in the results of studies of children exposed in these two studies. In the Faroe Islands, there was evidence of harmful effects from maternal mercury exposures that were thought to be safe based on the Seychelles studies. In the Faroe Islands, exposure to mercury was primarily from intermittent bolus doses associated with consumption of pilot whales. Also, children in the Faroe Islands were examined at an older age than children in the Seychelles and more precise domain specific neurologic testing was performed. During the next two years, further follow-up data will become available from the Seychelles Islands using similar domain specific testing.
