In the review of this Dispatches television programme, the author, Abi Berger, stated that the results of a study conducted by Dr Nick Chadwick “were not made public” (BMJ 2004;329:1293, 27 Nov). She meant that the results were not presented at the press conference held in 1998 that effectively sparked off the health scare about the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine—not that the results were not in the public domain at all. The results had been published in the Journal of Medical Virology (1998;55: 305-11).
