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)
A live, attenuated varicella virus vaccine used for immunization against chickenpox. It is recommended for children between the ages of 12 months and 13 years.
The type species of VARICELLOVIRUS causing CHICKENPOX (varicella) and HERPES ZOSTER (shingles) in humans.
Suspensions of killed or attenuated microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa), antigenic proteins, synthetic constructs, or other bio-molecular derivatives, administered for the prevention, amelioration, or treatment of infectious and other diseases.
An acute infectious, usually self-limited, disease believed to represent activation of latent varicella-zoster virus (HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN) in those who have been rendered partially immune after a previous attack of CHICKENPOX. It involves the SENSORY GANGLIA and their areas of innervation and is characterized by severe neuralgic pain along the distribution of the affected nerve and crops of clustered vesicles over the area. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
Vaccines in which the infectious microbial nucleic acid components have been destroyed by chemical or physical treatment (e.g., formalin, beta-propiolactone, gamma radiation) without affecting the antigenicity or immunogenicity of the viral coat or bacterial outer membrane proteins.
Suspensions of attenuated or killed viruses administered for the prevention or treatment of infectious viral disease.
Skin diseases caused by viruses.
Two or more vaccines in a single dosage form.
Recombinant DNA vectors encoding antigens administered for the prevention or treatment of disease. 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.
Small synthetic peptides that mimic surface antigens of pathogens and are immunogenic, or vaccines manufactured with the aid of recombinant DNA techniques. The latter vaccines may also be whole viruses whose nucleic acids have been modified.
An attenuated vaccine used to prevent and/or treat HERPES ZOSTER, a disease caused by HUMAN HERPESVIRUS 3.
Suspensions of attenuated or killed bacteria administered for the prevention or treatment of infectious bacterial disease.
Administration of vaccines to stimulate the host's immune response. This includes any preparation intended for active immunological prophylaxis.

Semisynthetic vaccines consisting of polysaccharide antigens from microorganisms attached to protein carrier molecules. 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.
A GUANOSINE analog that acts as an antimetabolite. Viruses are especially susceptible. Used especially against herpes.
Immunoglobulins produced in response to VIRAL ANTIGENS.

Administration of a vaccine to large populations in order to elicit IMMUNITY.
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent PAPILLOMAVIRUS INFECTIONS. Human vaccines are intended to reduce the incidence of UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS, so they are sometimes considered a type of CANCER VACCINES. They are often composed of CAPSID PROTEINS, especially L1 protein, from various types of ALPHAPAPILLOMAVIRUS.
A fulminating bacterial infection of the deep layers of the skin and FASCIA. It can be caused by many different organisms, with STREPTOCOCCUS PYOGENES being the most common.
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent infection with NEISSERIA MENINGITIDIS.
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.
An acute infectious disease caused by RUBULAVIRUS, spread by direct contact, airborne droplet nuclei, fomites contaminated by infectious saliva, and perhaps urine, and usually seen in children under the age of 15, although adults may also be affected. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
Vaccines or candidate vaccines containing inactivated hepatitis B or some of its component antigens and designed to prevent hepatitis B. Some vaccines may be recombinantly produced.
A live attenuated virus vaccine of chick embryo origin, used for routine immunization of children and for immunization of adolescents and adults who have not had measles or been immunized with live measles vaccine and have no serum antibodies against measles. Children are usually immunized with measles-mumps-rubella combination vaccine. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
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). There is an acellular pertussis vaccine prepared from the purified antigenic components of Bordetella pertussis, which causes fewer adverse reactions than whole-cell vaccine and, like the whole-cell vaccine, is generally used in a mixture with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
Vaccines or candidate vaccines containing antigenic polysaccharides from Haemophilus influenzae and designed to prevent infection. The vaccine can contain the polysaccharides alone or more frequently polysaccharides conjugated to carrier molecules. It is also seen as a combined vaccine with diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine.
An active immunizing agent and a viable avirulent attenuated strain of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, var. bovis, which confers immunity to mycobacterial infections. It is used also in immunotherapy of neoplasms due to its stimulation of antibodies and non-specific immunity.
A suspension of formalin-inactivated poliovirus grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture and used to prevent POLIOMYELITIS.

Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent infection with hepatitis A virus (HEPATOVIRUS).
Schedule giving optimum times usually for primary and/or secondary immunization.
Substances that augment, stimulate, activate, potentiate, or modulate the immune response at either the cellular or humoral level. 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.
Any immunization following a primary immunization and involving exposure to the same or a closely related antigen.
A combined vaccine used to prevent MEASLES; MUMPS; and RUBELLA.
Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent STREPTOCOCCAL INFECTIONS.

Vaccines using VIROSOMES as the antigen delivery system that stimulates the desired immune response.

Risk factors for breakthrough varicella in healthy children. (1/283)

AIM: To evaluate the risk factors for breakthrough varicella in a follow up study of a cohort of 181 healthy children immunised when aged 9-24 months with a reformulated Oka strain varicella vaccine (SmithKline Beecham Biologicals/Oka). DESIGN: The children were randomised in a double blind manner into one of four groups to receive one of two production lot vaccine batches, at two different titres (high titre, 10(3.9) and 10(4.0) plaque forming units (pfu); low titre (heat exposed), 10(2.7) and 10(2.8) pfu). The overall seroconversion rate after immunisation was 99%. RESULTS: One hundred and sixty-eight patients were available for review after a mean (SD) follow up of 35 (9) months after vaccination. Multivariate analysis indicated that risk factors for breakthrough varicella were household contact with varicella (adjusted odds ratio (OR), 19.89; 95% confidence interval (CI), 18.39 to 21.39), vaccination age of < or = 14 months (adjusted OR, 2.30; 95% CI, 1.69 to 2.90), and receiving low titre (10(2.7) pfu) vaccine (adjusted OR, 2.13; 95% CI, 1.54 to 2.73). All children who developed breakthrough varicella, had a modified varicella illness, except for three, all of whom had received low titre vaccine. CONCLUSION: The identification of young immunisation age (< or = 14 months) and low titre vaccine as risk factors for breakthrough varicella have important implications for the implementation of varicella vaccination programmes in healthy children.  (+info)

Prevention of varicella. Update recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). (2/283)

In February 1999, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) expanded recommendations for varicella (chickenpox) vaccine to promote wider use of the vaccine for susceptible children and adults. The updated recommendations include establishing child care and school entry requirements, use of the vaccine following exposure and for outbreak control, use of the vaccine for some children infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and vaccination of adults and adolescents at high risk for exposure. These recommendations also provide new information on varicella vaccine postlicensure safety data.  (+info)

Varicella-zoster virus-specific cellular immunity in subjects given acyclovir after household chickenpox exposure. (3/283)

The time course of primary cell-mediated immune responses to varicella-zoster virus (VZV) among persons receiving acyclovir prophylaxis after exposure to chickenpox has not been well defined. Fifteen children who had household exposure to varicella received prophylactic acyclovir (40 mg/kg/day for 7-14 days after exposure) and were studied for development of both antibody and cell-mediated immunity (CMI) to VZV. Twelve developed antibodies and/or CMI; 10 had no symptoms and 2 manifested mild varicella. Two were already immune to varicella and had booster immune responses. One was not infected and subsequently developed full-blown varicella. Although acyclovir given after exposure to VZV is highly effective and does not appear to attenuate the immune response, it remains necessary to confirm whether, in the absence of clinical varicella, persons acquire specific immunity.  (+info)

Infant vaccinations and risk of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in the USA. (4/283)

Previous studies have suggested that infant vaccinations may reduce the risk of subsequent childhood leukaemia. Vaccination histories were compared in 439 children (ages 0-14) diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) in nine Midwestern and Mid-Atlantic states (USA) between 1 January 1989 and 30 June 1993 and 439 controls selected by random-digit dialing and individually matched to cases on age, race and telephone exchange. Among matched pairs, similar proportions of cases and controls had received at least one dose of oral poliovirus (98%), diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (97%), and measles-mumps-rubella (90%) vaccines. Only 47% of cases and 53% of controls had received any Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) vaccine (relative risk (RR) = 0.73; 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.50-1.06). Although similar proportions of cases (12%) and controls (11%) received the polysaccharide Hib vaccine (RR = 1.13; 95% CI 0.64-1.98), more controls (41%) than cases (35%) received the conjugate Hib vaccine (RR = 0.57; 95% CI 0.36-0.89). Although we found no relationship between most infant vaccinations and subsequent risk of childhood ALL, our findings suggest that infants receiving the conjugate Hib vaccine may be at reduced risk of subsequent childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Further studies are needed to confirm this association and, if confirmed, to elucidate the underlying mechanism.  (+info)

Immunisation against varicella in end stage and pre-end stage renal failure. Trans-Pennine Paediatric Nephrology Study Group. (5/283)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the seroconversion rate and duration of persistence of protective antibody titres after varicella immunisation in children with renal failure. DESIGN: 32 children (25 end stage and 7 pre-end stage renal failure) were immunised using 2 x 2,000 plaque forming unit doses of varicella vaccine 3 months apart. Varicella antibody titres were measured by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay. RESULTS: All children initially seroconverted after immunisation. At a mean follow up of 20.3 months, 23 of 28 had protective antibody titres, 4 children having died of unrelated causes. Two children required a third booster dose. 11 children underwent renal transplantation; 10 had protective titres at the time of transplantation and, at a mean of 23.4 months after immunisation, 6 currently have protective titres. Minor side effects occurred after 11 vaccine doses in 9 children. No child developed varicella, despite 10 clear episodes of exposure to the wild-type virus. CONCLUSIONS: Varicella immunisation in children with end stage and pre-end stage renal failure results in a high rate of seroconversion and persistence of protective antibody titres. More widespread use of the vaccine before renal transplantation is recommended.  (+info)

Incidence, risk factors and outcome of varicella-zoster virus infection in children after haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. (6/283)

We report a retrospective analysis of VZV infection after haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in children. Thirty-three (30%) of the total 109 children who were transplanted during a 7 year period developed post-transplant VZV infection. Twenty-four of these 33 (73%) children had VZV infection within 1 year following HSCT. The cumulative incidences of post-transplant VZV infection at 1 and 5 years were 26% and 45%, respectively. The positive and negative predictive values of pretransplant VZV serology in recipients on the development of HZ following HSCT were 39% and 88%, respectively. Pretransplant VZV seropositivity in recipients was the only risk factor for post-transplant herpes zoster (HZ) infection on multivariate analysis. All patients responded to acyclovir. The median duration of VZV infection was 5 days. Three (11%) and one (3%) children with HZ developed visceral dissemination and post-herpetic neuralgia, respectively. No mortality was directly attributed to VZV infection. VZV infection remains a major cause of morbidity in children after HSCT. Further studies are warranted to evaluate the potential use of VZV vaccine in these children. Bone Marrow Transplantation (2000) 25, 167-172.  (+info)

Vaccination coverage among adolescents 1 year before the institution of a seventh grade school entry vaccination requirement--San Diego, California, 1998. (7/283)

In 1996, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Association of Family Physicians, and the American Medical Association recommended routine health-care visits for children aged 11-12 years, emphasizing vaccination with hepatitis B vaccine; measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine (MMR); tetanus and diphtheria toxoids (Td); and varicella vaccine. Because no national data exist regarding vaccination coverage among adolescents, the impact of these recommendations is unknown. In October 1997, California enacted Assembly Bill 381 (AB381) that requires students entering the seventh grade on or after July 1, 1999, to have received three doses of hepatitis B vaccine and two doses of MMR. To assist in planning and implementing AB381, the San Diego County Health Department expanded its 1998 infant and adult vaccination survey to include fifth and sixth graders. This report summarizes the findings from that survey, which indicate that most fifth and sixth graders lacked required and recommended vaccinations.  (+info)

Nucleotide sequences that distinguish Oka vaccine from parental Oka and other varicella-zoster virus isolates. (8/283)

The sequences of approximately 34 kb from the 3' end of the varicella-zoster virus (VZV) Oka vaccine strain and the previously sequenced Dumas strain were compared. Sequence differences were noted in the coding sequences of several VZV open reading frames (ORFs), including ORFs 48, 51, 52, 55, 56, 58, 59, 60, 62, 64, and 68. Tests based on differences in the ORF62 gene and in the ORF64 poly-A region successfully distinguished the Oka vaccine strain from its wild-type parent and from other Japanese and US clinical isolates. These changes remained stable after passage of the virus in humans.  (+info)

Background Since July 2004, routine varicella vaccination is recommended by the German Standing Vaccination Committee in Germany. Health Insurance Funds started to cover vaccination costs at different time points between 2004 and 2006 in the Federal States. Nationwide representative data on vaccination coverage against varicella of children under two years of age are not available. We aimed to determine varicella vaccination coverage in statutory health insured children under two years of age in twelve German Federal States using data from associations of statutory health insurance physicians (ASHIPs), in order to investigate the acceptance of the recommended routine varicella vaccination programme. Methods We analysed data on varicella vaccination from 13 of 17 ASHIPs of the years 2004 to 2007. The study population consisted of all statutory health insured children under two years of age born in 2004 (cohort 2004) or 2005 (cohort 2005) in one of the studied regions. Vaccination coverage was determined
This study assessed the costs and benefits of introducing routine varicella vaccination to healthy children in Germany. Three vaccination strategies were compared with that of no prevention: vaccination of all 15-month-old children: vaccination of susceptible 12-year-olds (adolescent); and a combina …

Varicella vaccine was 81 percent effective in preventing varicella during an elementary school outbreak with significantly milder disease among vaccinated students compared to unvaccinated students and warrants improving varicella vaccination coverage. A varicella outbreak at an elementary school in Nebraska in November 2004 raised concerns about vaccine failure among vaccinated students. The public health investigation demonstrated that vaccine effectiveness was within the expected range (80 85 percent) and vaccinated cases had significantly milder disease. Since the licensure of varicella vaccine in the United States in 1995 and the subsequent nationwide implementation of a varicella vaccination program there has been a dramatic decline in cases, hospitalizations, and deaths related to varicella. However, varicella outbreaks continue to occur, involving both unvaccinated and vaccinated cases as was the case in this outbreak too. Implementation of broader school entry requirements (to include ...
2. Chicken pox was a benign illness when contracted in childhood. This vaccine is another example of setting people up for waning immunity when they are older.

Three methods are used for the prevention of VZV infections. First, a live attenuated varicella vaccine (Oka) is recommended for all children ,1 year of age (up to 12 years of age) who have not had chickenpox and for adults known to be seronegative for VZV.Two doses are recommended for all children: the first at 12-15 months of age and the second at ~4-6 years of age. VZVseronegative persons ,13 years of age should receive two doses of vaccine at least 1 month apart. The vaccine is both safe and efficacious. Breakthrough cases are mild and may result in spread of the vaccine virus to susceptible contacts. The universal vaccination of children is resulting in a decreased incidence of chickenpox in sentinel communities. Furthermore, inactivation of the vaccine virus significantly decreases the occurrence of herpes zoster after hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation. After administration of a vaccine with 18 times the viral content of the Oka vaccine to individuals ,60 years of age, the incidence ...

Please note: An erratum has been published for this article. To view the erratum, please click here. On September 6, 2005, the Food and Drug Administration licensed a combined live attenuated measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (MMRV) vaccine (ProQuad®, Merck & Co., Inc., Whitehouse Station, New Jersey) for use in children aged 12 months--12 years. The attenuated measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine viruses in ProQuad are identical and of equal titer to those in the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, MMRII® (Merck). The titer of Oka/Merck varicella-zoster virus is higher in MMRV vaccine than in single antigen varicella vaccine, VARIVAX® (Merck), a minimum of 3.13 log10 plaque-forming units (pfu) versus 1,350 pfu (approximately 1.13 log10), respectively.

Do not take aspirin or medicines that contain aspirin (such as cold medicines) for 6 weeks after receiving this vaccine. Carefully check the label of any pain, headache, or cold medicine you give to your child to be sure it does not contain aspirin or salicylic acid. This vaccine contains albumin, which comes from human blood. Some human blood products have transmitted certain viruses to people who have received them. The risk of getting a virus from medicines made of human blood has been greatly reduced in recent years. This is the result of required testing of human donors for certain viruses, and testing during the manufacture of these medicines. Although the risk is low, talk with your childs doctor if you have concerns. Do not take other medicines unless they have been discussed with your doctor. This includes prescription or nonprescription (over-the-counter [OTC]) medicines and herbal or vitamin supplements. ...

I know of many people, including myself, whose healthy dogs have suffered an inexplicable illness shortly following regular vaccinations. Our dogs do not become ill from the vaccination itself but, after attending a lecture in 2000 given by Dr. John Angles (1), I do hold the view that certain breeds and certain dogs are more susceptible to immune-medicated diseases than others. However, Dr Angles has the view that, at present, the benefit of vaccination outweighs the problems but for those dogs who are susceptible to the problems, there is no way of identifying particular individuals, and vaccinating these dogs is a bit like playing Russian Roulette. In the Akita population, he has found there is a 9.3% prevalence of a dog falling foul to one of the serious immune-mediated diseases and this prevalence does not follow particular breed lines.. He believes that, if a dog is susceptible, one of the booster jabs sets up a hypersensitivity and the following vaccination sets up the auto-immune system ...

Commenting on an independent review groups recommendations for reforms to the testing of trainee teachers, accepted in full by the Secretary of State for Education, Christine Blower, General Secretary of the National Union of Teachers, the largest teachers union, said:
The Centers for Disease Control and Preventions (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) unanimously recommended that children aged 4 to 6 years receive a second dose of varicella vaccine for the prevention of chickenpox. The ACIP also suggested that children, adolescents, and adults who received only a single dose of varicella vaccine receive a second, catch-up dose, which can be done as part of routine health care visits and school-and college-entry requirements. VARIVAX [varicella vaccine live (Oka/Merck)] and ProQuad [measles, mumps, rubella, varicella (Oka/Merck) virus vaccine live] are the only vaccines to protect against chickenpox in the United States. VARIVAX is indicated for vaccination against varicella in individuals 12 months of age and older. ProQuad is indicated for simultaneous vaccination against measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella in children 12 months to 12 years of age. The committee also voted to recommend that a second dose of varicella vaccine be ...
Prior to the universal varicella vaccination program, 95% of adults experienced natural chickenpox (usually as school aged children)-these cases were usually benign and resulted in long term immunity. This high percentage of individuals having long term immunity has been compromised by mass vaccination of children which provides at best 70 to 90% immunity that is temporary and of unknown duration-shifting chickenpox to a more vulnerable adult population where chickenpox carries 20 times more risk of death and 15 times more risk of hospitalization compared to children. Add to this the adverse effects of both the chickenpox and shingles vaccines as well as the potential for increased risk of shingles for an estimated 30 to 50 years among adults. The Universal Varicella (Chickenpox) Vaccination Program now requires booster vaccines; however, these are less effective than the natural immunity that existed in communities prior to licensure of the varicella vaccine ...
Chickenpox is a very contagious disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV). It causes a blister-like rash, itching, tiredness, and fever. Chickenpox can be serious, especially in babies, adults, and people with weakened immune systems. It spreads easily from infected people to others who have never had chickenpox or received the chickenpox vaccine. Chickenpox spreads in the air through coughing or sneezing. It can also be spread by touching or breathing in the virus particles that come from chickenpox blisters.. The best way to prevent chickenpox is to get the chickenpox vaccine. Before the vaccine, about 4 million people would get chickenpox each year in the United States. Also, about 10,600 people were hospitalized and 100 to 150 died each year as a result of chickenpox.. ...
Chickenpox is a highly contagious illness caused by primary infection with varicella zoster virus (VZV). Chickenpox is a viral infection in which a person develops extremely itchy blisters all over the body. It used to be one of the classic childhood diseases. However, it has become much less common since the introduction of the chickenpox vaccine. Chickenpox is often characterized by symptoms including myalgia, itching, nausea, fever, headache, sore throat, diarrhea, pain in both ears, complaints of pressure in head or swollen face, and malaise. In children, the first symptom is usually the development of a vesicular rash. Causes and Risk factors Chickenpox is highly contagious, and it can spread quickly. The virus is transmitted by direct contact with the rash or by droplets dispersed into the air by coughing or sneezing. Risk of catching chickenpox is higher if someone: havent had chickenpox, havent been vaccinated for chickenpox, work in or attend a school or child care facility and live ...
This vaccine may not protect from all measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella infections.. After you receive this vaccine, stay away from people who are at a high risk for varicella infection. You could give the varicella infection to another person for up to 6 weeks after getting this vaccine. This includes people with HIV or AIDS, people with cancer, some pregnant women, and some babies. Ask your health care professional if you have any questions.. Do not take any aspirin products for 6 weeks after receiving this vaccine.. Women should inform their doctor if they wish to become pregnant or think they might be pregnant. There is a potential for serious side effects to an unborn child. Use effective birth control for at least 3 months after receiving this vaccine. Talk to your health care professional or pharmacist for more information.. ...
Chickenpox is a highly contagious disease, usually associated with childhood. By adulthood, more than 90 percent of Americans have had chickenpox.. The disease is caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV). Transmission occurs from person-to-person by direct contact or through the air by coughing or sneezing.. Until 1995, chickenpox infection was a common occurrence, and almost everyone had been infected by the time he or she reached adulthood. However, the introduction of the chickenpox vaccine in 1995 has caused a decline in the incidence of chickenpox in all ages, particularly in ages one through four years. The varicella vaccine can help prevent this disease, and two doses of the vaccine are recommended for children, adolescents, and adults. ...

Avoiding contact with those individuals who are affected with chickenpox can prevent it; however, this is very difficult. Many children are not even aware that they have been exposed. Protecting children from varicella is cumbersome, as they must be kept from school and other activities.. Immunization is the only practical way to prevent varicella. A live attenuated (weakened) varicella vaccine is recommended for all children who have passed their first birthday and have not had chickenpox. Children under 12 years of age require only a single injection; adolescents and adults are given two injections. The vaccine has few side effects; tenderness or pain at the injection site is the most common. Occasionally, a child may have a few chickenpox lesions on the injection side or over the trunk. The vaccine is effective in preventing or modifying varicella. In persons who have had the vaccine and still developed varicella, their cases have been extremely mild.. There are two concerns about the ...

The Doctors Medical Library. Health and Healing Information. Physician, Health care help, Chickenpox is a highly infectious viral disease also known as varicella. In many countries, this disease is known only as varicella. It causes a blister-like rash, itching, fatigue and fever. The rash appears first on the face and trunk and can spread over the entire body resulting in 250 to 500 itching blisters. Chickenpox is highly infectious as it spreads from person to person by direct contact or through the air by coughing or sneezing. It takes from 10-21 days (the incubation period) after contact with an infected person to develop chickenpox. People with chickenpox are contagious a day or two before the rash appears and until all blisters have formed scabs. In children, chickenpox most commonly causes an illness that lasts about 5-10 days. Infected children usually miss 5 or 6 days of school or childcare due to chickenpox. Symptoms may include high fever, severe itching, an uncomfortable rash,

Commercially available assays for detection of antibody to VZV include the enzyme immunoassay and latex agglutination test.46,47 Two sensitive assays, gpELISA (glycoprotein enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) and FAMA (sensitive fluorescent antibody to membrane antigen), have been used in clinical studies but are not commercially available.48 Commercially available enzyme immunoassay and latex agglutination tests are less sensitive and, therefore, unreliable in detecting immunity among immunized people. In addition, the latex agglutination test can yield false-positive results.49. The concentration of varicella antibody as measured by gpELISA 6 weeks after immunization correlates with neutralizing antibody concentration, VZV-specific T-lymphocyte proliferative responses, and protection against breakthrough varicella after exposure to VZV.50-54 Among children who have varicella antibody titers of ≥5 gpELISA units per mL 6 weeks after immunization, the vaccine efficacy rate is 95.5%, compared ...
Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is a member of the herpesvirus family. Primary maternal VZV infection (chickenpox) can result in fetal or neonatal infection. Other rare complications include spontaneous abortion, fetal demise, and premature delivery. Reactivation infection (zoster, shingles) does not result in fetal infection. Primary maternal VZV infection during the last trimester can cause maternal pneumonia with significant morbidity and mortality. The overall incidence of maternal and neonatal varicella has decreased over the past 15 to 20 years, presumably due to varicella vaccination. Active surveillance among adults has shown that the incidence of varicella declined 74% during 1995 to 2005, despite vaccination rates among adults of only 3%. Herd immunity is the likely explanation for this phenomenon. As of 2013, more than 78% of 13- to 17-year-old adolescents have received 2 doses of varicella vaccine. Varicella immunization is recommended for all nonimmune women as part of prepregnancy and ...
Chickenpox is caused by the highly contagious varicella zoster virus. It is spread by coughing and sneezing, and by direct contact with skin lesions. Chickenpox can lead to severe complications, including bacterial infection of the skin from the lesions, swelling of the brain, and pneumonia. Adults are at greater risk for severe complications from chickenpox than children. Once a person has had chickenpox, the virus can reactivate later in life to cause a painful condition called shingles, marked by a blistering rash ...
According to Michigan law, all students are required to be immunized with two doses of Varicella (Var) vaccine or have had a history of chickenpox disease.. Children who have not been vaccinated and have not had the disease should be vaccinated immediately with the first dose of Varicella (VAR). Once the first dose has been administered, the child can receive a second dose at the following recommended minimum interval: For children 12 months to 12 years - 2nd dose should be administered at 3 months; For children 13 years and older - 2nd dose should be administered in 28 days.. If an outbreak of chickenpox occurs in your childs school, and your child is not immunized or does not have verification of having had the disease, your child will be excluded from school until he/she receives the first dose of varicella vaccine. If you choose to not immunize your child at all (and you cannot verify that he/she has had the disease) and an outbreak of chickenpox occurs, your child will be excluded from ...
As we all know from our childhoods, chickenpox is an unpleasant disease that results in itchy rashes covering a large portion of the body, and it also brings fever and fatigue for a week or so. The new CDC report found that the frequency of chickenpox as declined from 4 million hospitalizations annually in the 1990s to about 3.5 million today, and a second dose of the vaccine should get the credit for that, experts say.. But most people dont realize just how dangerous it can be, and its not just a childhood illness for many people around the world. The fact is, even today chickenpox kills 100 people in the United States every year, and results in another 9,000 hospitalizations.. Chickenpox is most dangerous for very young children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. But even if youre a relatively healthy young to middle-aged adult, chickenpox can be a big problem. ...
The varicella vaccine is given by injection when kids are between 12 and 15 months old. They receive a booster shot for further protection at 4 to 6 years of age.. Kids who are older than 6 but younger than 13 who have not had chickenpox also may receive the vaccine, with the two doses given 3 months apart.. Kids 13 years or older who have not had either chickenpox or the vaccine need two vaccine doses 1 to 2 months apart. ...

The currently marketed varicella vaccines are based on the so-called Oka strain of VZV, which has been modified through sequential propagation in different cell cultures. Various formulations of such live, attenuated vaccines have been tested extensively and are approved for use in Japan, the Republic of Korea, the United States and several countries in Europe. Some formulations are approved for use at nine months of age and older.. Following a single dose of the above-mentioned vaccines, seroconversion is seen in about 95% of healthy children. From a logistic as well as an epidemiological point of view, the optimal age for varicella vaccination is 12-24 months. In Japan and several other countries one dose of the vaccine is considered sufficient, regardless of age. In the United States, two doses, four to eight weeks apart, are recommended for adolescents and adults, in whom 78% were found to have seroconverted after the first, and 99% after the second dose of the vaccine. Children below 13 ...
According to the CDC, children should get the chickenpox vaccine between the ages of 12 to 15 months.. The secondary shot (i.e., booster) is scheduled between 4 and 6 years of age. In B.C., the chickenpox vaccine is provided for free to children as part of their routine childhood vaccinations. For adults, the vaccine is provided for free for individuals who have clinical evidence that they have no immunity to chickenpox.

Pediatrics, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, reports on some key public health concerns for children and teens in the current issue, published online today. Vaccinating Children Against Chickenpox Also Helps Protect Babies Not Yet Eligible for the Vaccine Giving the varicella (chickenpox) vaccine to children 12 months of age and older has significantly increased protection for infants too young for the shot, according to a study in the December 2011 issue of Pediatrics. The researchers say that before varicella vaccination began for children 12 months of age and older in 1995, infants were four times more likely to die from a varicella infection compared to children ages 1 to 14 years. Researchers tracked cases in children under 1 year of age from 1995 to 2007 and found that the infections declined by 90 percent even though infants were not eligible for the vaccine. The researchers say that because exposure to the virus continues to occur, improving vaccination coverage in all ...

Chickenpox vaccination is not part of the routine childhood immunisation schedule in United Kingdom, but was recently introduced to the schedule in New Zealand.. The UKs National Health Service website explains:. Theres a worry that introducing chickenpox vaccination for all children could increase the risk of chickenpox and shingles in adults.. While chickenpox during childhood is unpleasant, the vast majority of children recover quickly and easily. In adults, chickenpox is more severe and the risk of complications increases with age.. If a childhood chickenpox vaccination programme was introduced, people would not catch chickenpox as children because the infection would no longer circulate in areas where the majority of children had been vaccinated.. This would leave unvaccinated children susceptible to contracting chickenpox as adults, when they are more likely to develop a more severe infection or a secondary complication, or in pregnancy, when there is a risk of the infection harming ...
In the New England Journal of Medicine, the researchers confirm what doctors have already known - that the vaccine has sharply reduced the number of cases in children but that its protection does not last long. With fewer natural cases of the disease, the study says, unvaccinated children or those whose first dose of the vaccine fails to work are getting chickenpox later in life, when the risk of complications is higher. If youre unvaccinated and you get it later in life, theres a 20-times greater risk of dying compared to a child, and a 10- to 15-times greater chance of getting hospitalized, said Dr. Jane Seward of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, who worked on the study....The United States has been vaccinating against chickenpox since 1995. But tests have shown that the vaccine is not very effective in 15 percent to 20 percent of children who receive only one dose. A second dose would provide extra protection, but it is not clear how much.. - Reuters, New York ...

Varicella outbreaks among adults are less common than among children. Because the potential for serious disease is higher in adults, state and local health departments should be alert to these outbreaks. In addition, the susceptibility among adults from certain regions in Mexico is higher than in U.S.-born adults. Outbreaks associated with severe complications or among adults and adolescents should be investigated and controlled. During varicella outbreaks, infected patients should be isolated at home; varicella vaccine is recommended for exposed persons. Depending on urgency, vaccination can be offered on the basis of a negative or uncertain disease history and/or a negative serologic test. Because most adults with a negative or uncertain varicella history are immune to varicella when tested, serologic testing may decrease the number of vaccine doses needed for outbreak control ...
There are few studies that have examined the frequencies of epitope-specific CD4(+) T cells following the use of a highly effective vaccine, yet such data would potentially be of value for the development of novel vaccination strategies. In this study we tracked human epitope-specific CD4(+) T cell responses over time after immunisation with a live attenuated varicella zoster virus vaccine by MHC Class II tetrameric complexes and functional assays.
