A key medical case goes to court Monday that centers on autism in children.Families claiming that a mercury-based preservative in vaccines triggers autism will challenge mainstream medicine as they take their case to a federal court.

Two 10-year-old boys from Oregon will serve as test cases that determine whether the children and their families in similar situations should be compensated by a government fund.
