The categories of causation used by the committee are the following: • • • • Evidence convincingly supports7 a causal relationship—This applies to relationships in which the causal link is convincing, as with the oral polio vaccine and vaccine-associated paralytic polio. Evidence favors acceptance of a causal relationship—Evidence is strong and generally suggestive, although not firm enough to be described as convincing or established. Evidence is inadequate to accept or reject a causal relationship— The evidence is not reasonably convincing either in support of or against causality; evidence that is sparse, conflicting, of weak quality, or merely suggestive—whether toward or away from causality—falls into this category.
