Genes may explain apparent link between narcolepsy and flu vaccine
from The Washington Post
Scientists may have found a clue to explain a possible increased risk for narcolepsy among some people who got the H1N1 flu vaccine. According to the World Health Organization, excess cases of narcolepsy appear to have occurred among people with a gene that increases the risk for the rare disorder, which causes people to suddenly fall asleep. Cases of narcolepsy have been reported in 12 countries among children and adolescents who received the swine flu vaccine in 2009. Sweden and Finland reported the most cases, with 60 of them in the latter country.
