category of evidence was found bearing on a judgment about
causation (all categories of evidence left blank in Table 1-1).
evidence in one or more categories was identified but was judged to
be insufficient to indicate whether or not a causal relation exists
(no category of evidence checked as supporting causation in Table
1-1; exceptions are this designation under biologic plausibility
for erythema multiforme and hemolytic anemia).
available evidence, on balance, does not indicate a causal relation
(one or more categories of evidence checked as not supporting
causation in Table 1-1, with evidence supporting causation being
either absent or outweighed by the other evidence).
available evidence, on balance, tends to support a causal relation
(one or more categories of evidence checked as supporting causation
in Table 1-1, with evidence checked as insufficient or not
supporting causation being absent or outweighed by the other
in controlled studies reviewed as encephalopathy, encephalitis, or
available evidence, on balance, supports a causal relation, and the
evidence is more persuasive than that for conclusion 4 above (the
categories of evidence are coded similarly to those in conclusion
4, with evidence checked as insufficient or not supporting
causation in Table 1-1 being absent or less than for 4).
