It was Deer who, in 2004, investigated Wakefield, finding conflicts of interest and ethical problems that helped lead in 2010 to Wakefield’s dismissal as a doctor and a retraction of the original 1998 Lancet article coauthored by Wakefield with twelve others, most of whom retracted their support for the claim of the vaccine-autism link.
