Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia following immunization with the hepatitis B vaccine: another angle of the ‘autoimmune (auto-inflammatory) syndrome induced by adjuvants’ (ASIA). 2014
19 patients were studied from 1990-2008, all satisfied ASIA criteria

93 patients in 2012 (similar to study above)
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22235045
…shows an association between hepatitis B vaccine, fibromyaligia and chronic fatigue due to ASIA syndrome; Autoimmune/inflammatory Syndryome Induced by Adjuvants: induced after a chronic stimulation of the immune system by agents with adjuvant characteristics (like aluminum) that stimulate the immune system without creating antibodies to itself.

The putative protective role of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection from autoimmune disorders 2008
A study found that there was an unexpected low percentage of antibodies to hepatitis B in patients with systemic lupus, MS, and type 1 diabetes compared to healthy matched donors, suggesting a protective role to Hep B in some autoimmune diseases (hygiene theory).
