    MMR, Rabies and flu vaxes are made with chicken embryos. Hep B is produced by yeast cells.

    I can't believe that anyone would *not* vaccinate under these circumstances. 5% is high!

    I realise they use chick embryos, etc. So are they original cell lines MRC-5 and WI-38 never used anymore?

    where is the 5% figure coming from?

    They mention the following:

    "During the application the court was told the newborn had a 20 per cent chance of being infected by her mother.
    If the baby was infected, it was almost certain to develop a chronic infection and would be at risk of cancer and liver disease, the court heard".
    It says 20% chance of infection which would then lead to high probability of secondary diseases such as cancer and liver disease.

    Just curious as to where the 5% figure is arising from.

    Not sure, but I just read that 20-30% of Hep b patients develop Cirrhosis, I can't believe anyone would even risk that in a baby - especially if they have a 20% chance of developing hep b.

    according the CDC newborns who are infected with hep B have a 90% chance of developing chronic infection unless they are vaccinated at birth then over time approx between 15-25% of those with chronic hep B infection will develop serious liver problems including liver cancer. It is very infectious and can be spread by trace amounts of blood that cannot be seen through cracks in the skin or mucus membranes. It can be found in saliva, although it is not believed to be transferred through sharing utensils.
