The host cells take up the DNA, express the antigen, and present it to the immune system in a manner similar to that which would occur during natural infection. This induces humoral and cellular immune responses against the encoded antigens. The vector is called naked DNA because there is no need for complex formulations or delivery agents; the plasmid is injected in saline or other buffers.Smallpox Vaccine: A live VACCINIA VIRUS vaccine of calf lymph or chick embryo origin, used for immunization against smallpox. It is now recommended only for laboratory workers exposed to smallpox virus. Certain countries continue to vaccinate those in the military service. Complications that result from smallpox vaccination include vaccinia, secondary bacterial infections, and encephalomyelitis. (Dorland, 28th ed)Cancer Vaccines: Vaccines or candidate vaccines designed to prevent or treat cancer.

The classical agents (Freund's adjuvant, BCG, Corynebacterium parvum, et al.) contain bacterial antigens. Some are endogenous (e.g., histamine, interferon, transfer factor, tuftsin, interleukin-1). Their mode of action is either non-specific, resulting in increased immune responsiveness to a wide variety of antigens, or antigen-specific, i.e., affecting a restricted type of immune response to a narrow group of antigens. The therapeutic efficacy of many biological response modifiers is related to their antigen-specific immunoadjuvanticity.Injections, Intradermal: The forcing into the skin of liquid medication, nutrient, or other fluid through a hollow needle, piercing the top skin layer.Vaccines, Combined: Two or more vaccines in a single dosage form.Antibodies, Bacterial: Immunoglobulins produced in a response to BACTERIAL ANTIGENS.Tetanus: A disease caused by tetanospasmin, a powerful protein toxin produced by CLOSTRIDIUM TETANI.

Localized tetanus presents itself as a mild condition with manifestations restricted to muscles near the wound. It may progress to the generalized form.Pertussis Vaccine: A suspension of killed Bordetella pertussis organisms, used for immunization against pertussis (WHOOPING COUGH). It is generally used in a mixture with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids (DTP).

The carrier protein is recognized by macrophages and T-cells thus enhancing immunity. Conjugate vaccines induce antibody formation in people not responsive to polysaccharide alone, induce higher levels of antibody, and show a booster response on repeated injection.Chickenpox: A highly contagious infectious disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus (HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN). It usually affects children, is spread by direct contact or respiratory route via droplet nuclei, and is characterized by the appearance on the skin and mucous membranes of successive crops of typical pruritic vesicular lesions that are easily broken and become scabbed. Chickenpox is relatively benign in children, but may be complicated by pneumonia and encephalitis in adults. (From Dorland, 27th ed)Immunity, Herd: The non-susceptibility to infection of a large group of individuals in a population. A variety of factors can be responsible for herd immunity and this gives rise to the different definitions used in the literature. Most commonly, herd immunity refers to the case when, if most of the population is immune, infection of a single individual will not cause an epidemic. Also, in such immunized populations, susceptible individuals are not likely to become infected. Herd immunity can also refer to the case when unprotected individuals fail to contract a disease because the infecting organism has been banished from the population.Immunization: Deliberate stimulation of the host's immune response. ACTIVE IMMUNIZATION involves administration of ANTIGENS or IMMUNOLOGIC ADJUVANTS.

Face to face interventions to inform or educate parents about early childhood vaccination. Face to face interventions to inform or educate parents about early childhood vaccination Childhood vaccination also described as immunisation is an important and effective way to reduce childhood illness and death. The studies suggest that face to face strategies do not consistently improve either immunisation rates or parent knowledge and understanding of vaccination, but the evidence was low to very low quality for these outcomes. Authors conclusions: The limited evidence available is low quality and suggests that face to face interventions to inform or educate parents about childhood vaccination have little to no impact on immunisation status, or knowledge or understanding of vaccination.

The impact of immunization policy on vaccine-preventable diseases has been listed as one of the top public health achievements of our time. 8 Governments often allow exemptions to mandatory vaccinations for religious or philosophical reasons, but some believe that decreased rates of vaccination may cause loss of herd immunity, substantially increasing risks even to vaccinated individuals. policies usually require children receive vaccinations before entering school, although many states allow for religious and personal exemptions due to philosophical or health reasons. Living in a globalized world that is extremely connected, diseases that are preventable by vaccinations have become part of a larger public health movement: global herd immunity.

Vaccination of contacts plus isolation is expected to result in 7 deaths from vaccine or smallpox in a scenario involving the release of variola virus from a laboratory, 19 deaths in a human-vector scenario, 300 deaths in a building-attack scenario, 2735 deaths in a scenario involving a low-impact airport attack, and 54,728 deaths in a scenario involving a high-impact airport attack.

My State of Mississippi has one of the most-restrictive vaccine-exemption laws in the United States, where exemptions are allowed only upon medical recommendation. Ironically, this is only on paper, as many have had as many as three physicians, some experts in neurological damage caused by vaccines, provide written calls for exemption, only to be turned down by the State’s public-health officer. Worse are the States, such as Massachusetts, New Jersey and Maryland, where forced vaccinations have either been mandated by the courts, the state legislature, or have such legislation pending.

With rising numbers of parents succumbing to discredited fears that childhood inoculations cause autism, AB 2109 was supposed to tighten the state's lax rules that allow parents to exempt their children from vaccinations based on "personal belief." Under the law, parents could still send their children to public school without the vaccinations, but first they would have to submit a form signed by a health professional showing that they had been informed about the risks and benefits of immunization. But even as he signed it, Brown said he would instruct the state Department of Public Health to include a new exemption on the form for religious beliefs. If ...

... Developing countries overstate vaccination coverage. Official national reports of several developing countries tend to overstate the number of children fully vaccinated against childhood diseases, according to WHO experts Lancet 2003;362:1022-7. This finding indicates that, although such reports are generally the most widely available data for assessing vaccination coverage, their validity for measuring changes in coverage over time is "highly questionable." To reach these conclusions, researchers with WHO's Department of Health Service Provision, compared vaccination coverage reported between 1990 and 2000 in the official reports of 45 developing countries with that assessed in 67 Demographic and Health Surveys DHS. "Since this vaccine is a little more demanding, we thought that it better represents access to health services and access to quality care," says Bakhuti Shengelia, who led the study. "It's also widely used for the assessment of immunization programmes." Using DHS data, ...

*  Sandwalk: Bill Maher on Vaccination
... Sandwalk. Strolling with a skeptical biochemist. Monday, November 16, 2009. Bill Maher on Vaccination. Bill Maher has attempted to clarify his position on vaccination. His blog is a lot like his TV show. It's a confusing, rambling, attempt at justifying an indefensible position using attempted humor, sarcasm and anecdote as a substitute for rationalism. The question is whether vaccinations are good or bad. It's a strictly scientific question with a well-known scientific answer. As far as I can tell, these are Bill Maher's main reasons for opposing vaccinations. You wouldn't need to have vaccinations if you had a healthy immune system to begin with. And I'm sure he has some opinions on what you should eat to ensure a healthy immune system. The success of vaccinations has been exaggerated by the medical community but he's not accusing anyone of a conspiracy. Vaccines have bad things in them and they may be harmful to healthy people. Vaccinations are ...

Related Stories Vaccine exemption levels low, vaccination rates high in U.S. ACP supports for eliminating non-medical vaccination exemptions The model showed that overall vaccination coverage of 45.4% across Haiti would be sufficient to suppress transmission. The authors believe that this region would require 65% vaccination coverage to prevent transmission. Indeed, they showed that human-human transmission accounted for 68% of the disease spread. The authors explain that Haiti's large system of estuaries could provide a long-term reservoir for cholera which, combined with human-human transmission, could lead it to become ...

*  Town of Buxton, ME - What You Should Know About Vaccinations For Your Pet
... Vaccines are health products that trigger protective immune responses in pets and prepare them to fight future infections from disease-causing agents. Pets should be vaccinated to protect them from many highly contagious and deadly diseases. Even though some formerly common diseases have now become uncommon, vaccination is still highly recommended because these serious disease agents continue to be present in the environment. For most pets, vaccination is effective and will prevent future disease. Occasionally, a vaccinated pet may not develop adequate immunity and, although rare, it is possible for these pets to become ill. It is important to remember that although breakdowns in protection do occur, most successfully vaccinated pets never show signs of disease, making vaccination an important part of your pet's preventive health care. Rarely, serious adverse responses occur. Visit with your veterinarian about the latest information on vaccine safety, including rare adverse ...

*  Vaccinations and Naturopathic Philosophy
• Natural Immunity. • Risks of Vaccination Side Effects. On the other side of the arguement, opponents of vaccination point to statistics which show that virtually all reduction in fatalities from infectious disease occured before widespread vaccines were introduced for those illnesses, and that the same reductions in disease incidence also took place in countries where there were no widespread vaccination programs of any kind, and also took place in the same time period for diseases that never had vaccines introduced. Instead of vaccines reducing death and disease incidence, they point to revolutions in nutrition, sanitation and hygeine that were implemented at that time as being far more instrumental in the reduction of infectious disease. Natural Immunity. It is certain types of our white blood cells which produce the immunoglobulins which are a vital part of our immune system.

*  .. Vaccinations and Canine Cancer
Vaccinations and Canine Cancer. By Dr. Steven Eisen. There is little that can annoy me more than hearing about a dog with cancer that has gotten a vaccination. And it happens every day. Please make no mistake about it. If your dog has cancer it is imperative that they never receive another vaccination. Not ever again for the rest of their life. There are clear warnings about this from the pharmaceutical companies who make the vaccines. Any vaccination given to your dog will further impair their immune system and greatly reduce their likelihood of recovery. Now, you may be saying, “But where I live, the law says I have to get my dog vaccinated.” The fact is, in most jurisdictions, this only applies to healthy dogs. Where I live, I can get an exemption from vaccinating my dog if she is unhealthy. And the same is true in most jurisdictions. All I need to do is to get my vet to write a letter that says because of my dog’s health problem, she should not be vaccinated, and send it ...

flu Immunizations Are Important May 18, 2012 by Naomi. They work by preventing infectious diseases, some of which have the potential to cause long-lasting or permanent health problems, or even death. Diseases become rare due to vaccinations. At Swift County Benson Hospital, the staff is regularly vaccinated with the appropriate medicine, but there have been cases where patients were admitted and their disease could have been prevented or the severity decreased with a single shot. Some diseases like polio and diphtheria are rare because we have been vaccinating against them. Even if there are only a few cases of disease, if we take away the protection given by vaccination, more people will be infected and spread disease to others. Soon we will undo the progress we have made. The extensive use of vaccines has proven a major public health success against infectious diseases. By the end of the 20th century, benefits were so dramatic in reducing the suffering, the Centers for Disease Control and ...

(1/8916) Experimental production of infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis: comparison of serological and immunological responses using pili fractions of Moraxella bovis.

The effect of vaccinating cattle and mice on the development of keratoconjunctivitis was studied. Cattle were vaccinated with whole cells, disrupted cells and pili fractions of three strains of Moraxella bovis. Mice were vaccinated with pili fractions of three strains. The resistance of all vaccinated animals was challenged with virulent cultures of M. bovis. In an attempt to correlate the response seen after vaccination and challenge with a pili fraction of M. bovis, vaccinated cattle and mice were grouped on the basis of signs of disease manifested and compared on the basis of serological responses. Serum samples were tested for antibodies by a gel diffusion precipitin test. A greater number of the sera of resistant cattle had antibodies to the homologous pili antigen than those of vaccinated nonresistant cattle. Cattle vaccinated with disrupted cells were not resistant to infectious bovine kerato-conjuctivitis and their sera lacked antibodies against the pili antigens. Vaccinated mice were more resistant to infectious bovine kerato-conjuctivitis and their sera lacked antibodies against the pili antigens. Vaccinated mice were more resistant to challenge exposure by homologous than heterologous cultures. A greater number of the sera of resistant mice had antibodies to pili antigens than nonresistant mice.  (+info)

(2/8916) Cluster survey evaluation of coverage and risk factors for failure to be immunized during the 1995 National Immunization Days in Egypt.

BACKGROUND: In 1995, Egypt continued to experience endemic wild poliovirus transmission despite achieving high routine immunization coverage with at least three doses of oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV3) and implementing National Immunization Days (NIDs) annually for several years. METHODS: Parents of 4188 children in 3216 households throughout Egypt were surveyed after the second round of the 1995 NIDs. RESULTS: Nationwide, 74% of children are estimated to have received both NID doses, 17% one NID dose, and 9% neither NID dose. Previously unimmunized (47%) or partially immunized (64%) children were less likely to receive two NID doses of OPV than were fully immunized children (76%) (P < 0.001). Other risk factors nationwide for failure to receive NID OPV included distance from residence to nearest NID site >10 minute walk (P < 0.001), not being informed about the NID at least one day in advance (P < 0.001), and residing in a household which does not watch television (P < 0.001). Based on these findings, subsequent NIDs in Egypt were modified to improve coverage, which has resulted in a marked decrease in the incidence of paralytic poliomyelitis in Egypt. CONCLUSIONS: In selected situations, surveys can provide important information that is useful for planning future NIDs.  (+info)

(3/8916) Paediatric, invasive pneumococcal disease in Switzerland, 1985-1994. Swiss Pneumococcal Study Group.

BACKGROUND: Cost effective use of new vaccines against pneumococcal disease in children requires detailed information about the local epidemiology of pneumococcal infections. METHODS: Data on 393 culture-confirmed cases of invasive pneumococcal infection in children (<17 years) hospitalized in Swiss paediatric clinics were collected retrospectively for the years 1985-1994. RESULTS: Meningitis (42%) was most frequent, followed by pneumonia (28%) and bacteraemia (26%). The overall annual incidence was 2.7 cases per 100000 children <17 years old and 11 cases per 100000 children <2 years old. Annual incidence rates were stable over the study period. Lethality was high for meningitis (8.6%) and bacteraemia (8.9%). A history of basal skull fracture was reported in 3.3% of children with pneumococcal meningitis. Residence in a rural region was associated with an increased risk of pneumococcal infection (relative risk = 1.45, 95% confidence interval: 1.01-2.00). CONCLUSIONS: Paediatric, invasive pneumococcal disease seems to be less frequent in Switzerland than in other European and non-European countries. This may be due to differences in diagnostic strategies and lower frequency of risk factors such as the use of day care. Children with a history of basal skull fracture are at increased risk for pneumococcal meningitis. Further investigation of the association of invasive pneumococcal infection with rural residence and the use of antibiotics for upper respiratory tract infections might give new insight into the dynamics of Streptococcus pneumoniae infection and the development of antibiotic resistance.  (+info)

(4/8916) Safety and immunogenicity of a Pseudomonas aeruginosa hybrid outer membrane protein F-I vaccine in human volunteers.

A hybrid protein [Met-Ala-(His)6OprF190-342-OprI21-83] consisting of the mature outer membrane protein I (OprI) and amino acids 190 to 342 of OprF of Pseudomonas aeruginosa was expressed in Escherichia coli and purified by Ni2+ chelate-affinity chromatography. After safety and pyrogenicity evaluations in animals, four groups of eight adult human volunteers were vaccinated intramuscularly three times at 4-week intervals and revaccinated 6 months later with either 500, 100, 50, or 20 microg of OprF-OprI adsorbed onto A1(OH)3. All vaccinations were well tolerated. After the first vaccination, a significant rise of antibody titers against P. aeruginosa OprF and OprI was measured in volunteers receiving the 100- or the 500-microg dose. After the second vaccination, significant antibody titers were measured for all groups. Elevated antibody titers against OprF and OprI could still be measured 6 months after the third vaccination. The capacity of the elicited antibodies to promote complement binding and opsonization could be demonstrated by a C1q-binding assay and by the in vitro opsonophagocytic uptake of P. aeruginosa bacteria. These data support the continued development of an OprF-OprI vaccine for use in humans.  (+info)

(5/8916) Protective efficacy of recombinant Yersinia outer proteins against bubonic plague caused by encapsulated and nonencapsulated Yersinia pestis.

To evaluate the role of Yersinia outer proteins (Yops) in conferring protective immunity against plague, six yop loci from Yersinia pestis were individually amplified by PCR, cloned, and expressed in Escherichia coli. The recombinant proteins were purified and injected into mice. Most Yop-vaccinated animals succumbed to infection with either wild-type encapsulated Y. pestis or a virulent, nonencapsulated isogenic variant. Vaccination with YpkA significantly prolonged mean survival time but did not increase overall survival of mice infected with the nonencapsulated strain. The only significant protection against death was observed in YopD-vaccinated mice challenged with the nonencapsulated strain.  (+info)

(6/8916) Sustained reduction in the carriage of Neisseria meningitidis as a result of a community meningococcal disease control programme.

The effect of a community intervention programme of antibiotics and meningitis vaccine on pharyngeal carriage of Neisseria meningitidis was investigated. Carriage rates were determined in pupils at both secondary schools (ages 11-18 years) included in the community intervention programme and compared with two schools outside the area matched for socio-economic status. A total of 1869 pupils were studied 6 months after the programmes, and 2457 pupils after 11 months. Six months after the programme was completed there was a 72% reduction in pharyngeal carriage of Neisseria meningitidis in pupils attending the schools in the intervention area compared with pupils in the control schools. After 11 months this difference persisted in the 11-14 age group but not in the 15-18 age group. No resistance to the antibiotics used in the programme was found. A community intervention programme of antibiotics and vaccine for the control of meningococcal disease led to a long-term reduction in Neisseria meningitidis carriage in some age groups.  (+info)

(7/8916) Seroepidemiological evaluation of 1989-91 mass vaccination campaigns against measles, in Italy.

In 1989-91 anti-measles vaccination campaigns were conducted in several Italian regions to vaccinate all children aged between 13 months and 10-12 years without a history of measles or measles vaccination. This study was conducted to evaluate serological status after the mass vaccination campaigns. In 1994, capillary blood samples were collected from randomly selected children, aged 2-14 years, living in 13 local health units. Antibody titres were determined by ELISA. Blood spot samples were analysed for 4114 (75.6%) of 5440 selected children. Among the 835 that reported measles before 1990, 806 (96.5%) were immune and of the 2798 vaccinated, 2665 (95.2%) were immune. The Edmoston-Zagreb (E-Z) strain vaccine was associated with a lower level of immunity than the Schwarz (SW) strain. A history of measles identified almost all immune children. Vaccination with the SW strain conferred persistent immunity (at least 5 years) in 98% of vaccinees. The strategy was able to unite natural and induced immunity.  (+info)

(8/8916) A model-based evaluation of the national immunization programme against rubella infection and congenital rubella syndrome in The Netherlands.

In order to improve the prevention of cases of congenital rubella syndrome in The Netherlands, in 1987 the selective vaccination strategy against rubella infection in girls was replaced by mass vaccination. This decision was supported by mathematical model analyses carried out by Van Druten and De Boo. In order to compare the predicted impact of the rubella vaccination programme with the current available data in more detail, a similar model was built. Although the model predicts elimination of the rubella virus, data show that virus circulation is still present at a higher level than expected by the model. Simulation studies indicate that import of infection and a lower vaccine effectiveness, related to possible asymptomatic reinfection of vaccinated people, could be sources contributing to the present virus circulation. Even though the number of infections is much higher than the number of reported cases of disease, limited serosurveillance data and case notification data show that females of childbearing age are well protected by immunization.  (+info)

What are some concerns and some benefits from vaccination in general?


  • I have this project about vaccination and i have to find concerns and benefits grade9. The project has to be linked to biotechnology and if you have anything to add i'd be more than happy.
  • The concerns are the ignorance of the public in knowing what a vaccination is all about. For instance, what is it? It's contents? Many people cannot answer even these two questions. So that's a big concern for Doctors. The benefits are to build an army of white corpuscles within your body so when the actual illness enters your body you will have the defenses to fight it off immediately and not get the illness. So the benefits are not getting sick. (not a 100% guarantee but enough for you to go and get vaccinate.)

Two doses of Td should be administered during pregnancy to ensure protection against maternal and neonatal tetanus. The preferred schedule in pregnant women is two doses of Td separated by 4 weeks, and a dose of Tdap 6 months after the second dose (post-partum). Healthcare providers can choose to substitute a single dose of Tdap for a dose of Td during pregnancy. 11 Although no evidence exists that tetanus and diphtheria toxoids are teratogenic, waiting until the second trimester of pregnancy to administer Td is a reasonable precaution for minimizing any concern about the theoretical possibility of such reactions. 12


Is it normal for a Tuberculosis vaccination scar to become red & swollen after a flu/H1N1 vaccination?


  • My daughter was given the TB vaccination as an infant & it left a circular scar. She's now 8 years old & we went yesterday for our seasonal flu shot & H1N1 pandemic shot. (I don't know which one was given in which arm) The scar from her TB shot is now red & swollen. Is this normal?
  • They probably gave her the vaccination near the TB scar. Swelling is a common side effect of vaccinations given with hypodermic needles. It wouldn't hurt to call the place that administered the vaccination and inquire with them though. It's always better to be safe than sorry.


How long does the meningitis vaccination last?


  • I got my meningitis vaccination in 2002. Now I'm a fifth year student living in college and the health services here don't event know when how long the vaccination lasts....which sucks badly.
  • It never had any valid effect. Do not get vaccinated. There is no scientific proof that the theory of vaccination is valid, yet there is considerable proof that Vaccines cause illness and death. Just sit back and think about it for a while. Does it feel like sense to inject a disease directly into your bloodstream? The way to avoid disease is to strengthen the immune system. Vaccination weakens it. The Vaccination Hoax http://www.whale.to/b/hoax1.html A Detailed history of vaccination http://dgwa1.fortunecity.com/body/vaccination.html


Has any young ladies that had the gardisil vaccination skip a few cycles of their period?


  • My last cycle started on March 26 and I had my last vaccination on April 4. I haven't had a cycle since, and thats odd for me because i've been very regular for the past few years. I just wanted to know if this has happen to anyone else! Thanks in advance Thanks for the replies. I did go to the doctor last month, although she didnt seem too concerned, just told me to come back next month if it didnt return.
  • I have had the vaccination and i have not skipped any cycles and you shouldn't because the Gardisil is a shot for cervical cancer it should have nothing to do with your cycle. But to be on the safe side i would make an appointment to the doctor and ask them.


Why is the smallpox vaccination so different from others?


  • I am interested in virology and was wondering why the smallpox vaccination is delivered differently from others?
  • This vaccine is not given with a needle and syringe, as most other vaccines are. Instead, the smallpox vaccine is given using a two-pronged needle that is dipped into the vaccine solution and then used to prick the skin several times to deliver the vaccine into the shallow layers of skin. These needle sticks are not deep, but they will cause some soreness and minor bleeding. Smallpox vaccine usually is given in the skin of your upper arm. The smallpox vaccine contains the “live” vaccinia virus—not dead virus like many other vaccines. For that reason, the vaccination site must be cared for carefully to prevent the virus from spreading. . The vaccine does not contain the smallpox virus and cannot give you smallpox.


Is getting a vaccination prior to a piercing safe?


  • Im getting a vaccination tomorrow, but i want to get my belly button pierced the day after. Can these in any way affect eachother?
  • Ana, there should be no harmful effect from a vaccination ("immunization") when getting a belly button pierced. PLEASE, if you go ahead with the piercing, make sure the best sterile technique is used for the piercing to avoid any nasty skin and belly wall infection from lack of sterile technique.


What are the chances of getting the h1n1 virus if you already had the vaccination?

  • Yes you can still get it, Vaccinations dont work, period :)
