Research Facts
Triogen was later combined with the Salk polio vaccine to make Quadrigen, which proved to be toxic after experiencing temperature changes. The pertussis vaccine alone, as well as combined with those for diphtheria and tetanus, has long been controversial, and there have been cases in which it has allegedly made children very sick or caused their death.
