Courts Says Measles Vaccine Not Cause of Autism

(CNN) -- A special court ruled Thursday that parents of autistic children are not entitled to compensation in their contention that certain vaccines caused autism in their children.

A special court denied Mike and Theresa Cedillo's claim that vaccines caused autism in their daughter, Michelle.

"I must decide this case not on sentiment, but by analyzing the evidence," one of the "special masters" hearing the case said in denying the families' claims, ruling that the families had not presented sufficient evidence to prove their allegations.
