  • autoimmunity
  • Take for example, a recent article published in the journal Pharmacological Research in which Shoenfeld and colleagues issue unprecedented guidelines naming four categories of people who are most at risk for vaccine-induced autoimmunity. (collective-evolution.com)
  • On the other hand, many reports that describe post-vaccination autoimmunity strongly suggest that vaccines can indeed trigger autoimmunity . (collective-evolution.com)
  • travelers
  • Overall, 3% to 19% of travelers to the developing world will return to the United States with fever or will develop fever within weeks of their return. (aafp.org)
  • Prevention
  • Some of the most significant of these changes were the standardization of the jet injector apparatus, the distribution of freeze-dried lyophilized smallpox vaccine, and the establishment of a standard dosage of immune serum globulin at 0.05 milliliter per pound body weight for the prevention of infectious hepatitis. (army.mil)
  • development
  • We have invested more than $65 million over six years to combat this preventable illness, including supporting the development of a vaccine. (scoop.co.nz)
  • The development of a vaccine against GAS has primarily targeted the abundant cell-surface protein called the M-protein. (edu.au)
  • Thus we recommended that an initial funding be made to progress the science to a point where a decision could be made to take a vaccine into clinical development. (pmcsa.org.nz)
  • Many technologies under development will improve the simplicity and effectiveness of vaccine delivery. (science.org.au)
  • Under development are multilayer particle technologies 95, 96 and alternative adjuvants, which have the potential to remove the need for multiple shots 97 . (science.org.au)
  • research
  • Dr Rivera Hernandez said there was a long way to go, but she was hopeful that her work would lead to more research and, eventually, an effective and widely-available vaccine. (edu.au)
  • We're really only at the start of this process, but I'm hoping that our research model will be adopted as the gold standard for the assessment of potential GAS vaccines," she said. (edu.au)
  • Figure 6.1 Current research is aiming for entirely new vaccines and improved versions of existing vaccines. (science.org.au)
  • Tettelin and other TIGR scientists did the comparative genomics analysis in cooperation with a research group led by Dennis L. Kasper at Harvard Medical School and a team led by Guido Grandi at the vaccine research division of Chiron, S.p.A., a biomedical company that funded the research project. (innovations-report.com)
