The latter vaccines may also be whole viruses whose nucleic acids have been modified.Vaccines, DNA: 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.Bacterial Vaccines: Suspensions of attenuated or killed bacteria administered for the prevention or treatment of infectious bacterial disease.Vaccines, Attenuated: Live vaccines prepared from microorganisms which have undergone physical adaptation (e.g., by radiation or temperature conditioning) or serial passage in laboratory animal hosts or infected tissue/cell cultures, in order to produce avirulent mutant strains capable of inducing protective immunity.Disease Outbreaks: Sudden increase in the incidence of a disease. The concept includes EPIDEMICS and PANDEMICS.Mumps: 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.

The virus enters the respiratory tract via airborne droplet and spreads to the LYMPHATIC SYSTEM.AIDS Vaccines: Vaccines or candidate vaccines containing inactivated HIV or some of its component antigens and designed to prevent or treat AIDS. Some vaccines containing antigens are recombinantly produced.Hemagglutination Inhibition Tests: Serologic tests in which a known quantity of antigen is added to the serum prior to the addition of a red cell suspension. Reaction result is expressed as the smallest amount of antigen which causes complete inhibition of hemagglutination.Mass Vaccination: Administration of a vaccine to large populations in order to elicit IMMUNITY.Immunization, Secondary: Any immunization following a primary immunization and involving exposure to the same or a closely related antigen.USSRVaccines, Subunit: Vaccines consisting of one or more antigens that stimulate a strong immune response. They are purified from microorganisms or produced by recombinant DNA techniques, or they can be chemically synthesized peptides.Vaccines, Conjugate: 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.Immunoglobulin G: The major immunoglobulin isotype class in normal human serum. There are several isotype subclasses of IgG, for example, IgG1, IgG2A, and IgG2B.Neutralization Tests: The measurement of infection-blocking titer of ANTISERA by testing a series of dilutions for a given virus-antiserum interaction end-point, which is generally the dilution at which tissue cultures inoculated with the serum-virus mixtures demonstrate cytopathology (CPE) or the dilution at which 50% of test animals injected with serum-virus mixtures show infectivity (ID50) or die (LD50).Immunity, Humoral: Antibody-mediated immune response. Humoral immunity is brought about by ANTIBODY FORMATION, resulting from TH2 CELLS activating B-LYMPHOCYTES, followed by COMPLEMENT ACTIVATION.Malaria Vaccines: Vaccines made from antigens arising from any of the four strains of Plasmodium which cause malaria in humans, or from P. berghei which causes malaria in rodents.Hemagglutinins, Viral: Specific hemagglutinin subtypes encoded by VIRUSES.Gambia: A republic in western Africa, constituting an enclave within SENEGAL extending on both sides of the Gambia River. Its capital is Banjul, formerly Bathurst.Immunization: Deliberate stimulation of the host's immune response. ACTIVE IMMUNIZATION involves administration of ANTIGENS or IMMUNOLOGIC ADJUVANTS. PASSIVE IMMUNIZATION involves administration of IMMUNE SERA or LYMPHOCYTES or their extracts (e.g., transfer factor, immune RNA) or transplantation of immunocompetent cell producing tissue (thymus or bone marrow).Papillomavirus Vaccines: 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.Antibody Affinity: A measure of the binding strength between antibody and a simple hapten or antigen determinant. It depends on the closeness of stereochemical fit between antibody combining sites and antigen determinants, on the size of the area of contact between them, and on the distribution of charged and hydrophobic groups. It includes the concept of "avidity," which refers to the strength of the antigen-antibody bond after formation of reversible complexes.Meningococcal Vaccines: Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent infection with NEISSERIA MENINGITIDIS.Population Surveillance: Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.Morbillivirus: A genus of the family PARAMYXOVIRIDAE (subfamily PARAMYXOVIRINAE) where the virions of most members have hemagglutinin but not neuraminidase activity. All members produce both cytoplasmic and intranuclear inclusion bodies. MEASLES VIRUS is the type species.Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis: A rare, slowly progressive encephalitis caused by chronic infection with the MEASLES VIRUS. The condition occurs primarily in children and young adults, approximately 2-8 years after the initial infection. A gradual decline in intellectual abilities and behavioral alterations are followed by progressive MYOCLONUS; MUSCLE SPASTICITY; SEIZURES; DEMENTIA; autonomic dysfunction; and ATAXIA. DEATH usually occurs 1-3 years after disease onset. Pathologic features include perivascular cuffing, eosinophilic cytoplasmic inclusions, neurophagia, and fibrous gliosis.

(From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp767-8)Vitamin A: Retinol and derivatives of retinol that play an essential role in metabolic functioning of the retina, the growth of and differentiation of epithelial tissue, the growth of bone, reproduction, and the immune response. Dietary vitamin A is derived from a variety of CAROTENOIDS found in plants. It is enriched in the liver, egg yolks, and the fat component of dairy products.Hepatitis B Vaccines: 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.Immunity, Cellular: Manifestations of the immune response which are mediated by antigen-sensitized T-lymphocytes via lymphokines or direct cytotoxicity. This takes place in the absence of circulating antibody or where antibody plays a subordinate role.Immunity: Nonsusceptibility to the invasive or pathogenic effects of foreign microorganisms or to the toxic effect of antigenic substances.Antibody Formation: The production of ANTIBODIES by proliferating and differentiated B-LYMPHOCYTES under stimulation by ANTIGENS.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).

Role of schools in the transmission of measles in rural Senegal: implications for measles control in developing countries. (1/862)Patterns of measles transmission at school and at home were studied in 1995 in a rural area of Senegal with a high level of vaccination coverage. Among 209 case children with a median age of 8 years, there were no deaths, although the case fatality ratio has previously been 6-7% in this area. Forty percent of the case children had been vaccinated against measles; the proportion of vaccinated children was higher among secondary cases (47%) than among index cases (33%) (prevalence ratio = 1.36, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.04-1.76). Vaccinated index cases may have been less infectious than unvaccinated index cases, since they produced fewer clinical cases among exposed children (relative risk = 0.55, 95% CI 0.29-1.04). The secondary attack rate was lower in the schools than in the homes (relative risk = 0.31, 95% CI 0.20-0.49). The school outbreaks were protracted, with 4-5 generations of cases being seen in the two larger schools. Vaccine efficacy was found to be 57% (95% CI -23 to 85) in the schools and 74% (95% CI 62-82) in the residential compounds. Measles infection resulted in a mean of 3.8 days of absenteeism per case, though this did not appear to have an impact on the children's grades. Among the index cases, 56% of children were probably infected by neighbors in the community, and 7% were probably infected at health centers, 13% outside the community, and 24% in one of the three schools which had outbreaks during the epidemic. However, most of the school-related cases occurred at the beginning and therefore contributed to the general propagation of the epidemic. To prevent school outbreaks, it may be necessary to require vaccination prior to school entry and to revaccinate children in individual schools upon detection of cases of measles. Multidose measles vaccination schedules will be necessary to control measles in developing countries. (+info)

Seroepidemiological evaluation of 1989-91 mass vaccination campaigns against measles, in Italy. (4/862)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)
Measles eradication: experience in the Americas. (5/862)In 1994, the Ministers of Health from the Region of the Americas targeted measles for eradication from the Western Hemisphere by the year 2000. To achieve this goal, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) developed an enhanced measles eradication strategy. First, a one-time-only "catch-up" measles vaccination campaign is conducted among children aged 9 months to 14 years. Efforts are then made to vaccinate through routine health services ("keep-up") at least 95% of each newborn cohort at 12 months of age. Finally, to assure high population immunity among preschool-aged children, indiscriminate "follow-up" measles vaccination campaigns are conducted approximately every 4 years. These vaccination activities are accompanied by improvements in measles surveillance, including the laboratory testing of suspected measles cases. The implementation of the PAHO strategy has resulted in a marked reduction in measles incidence in all countries of the Americas. Indeed, in 1996 the all-time regional record low of 2109 measles cases was reported. There was a relative resurgence of measles in 1997 with over 20,000 cases, due to a large measles outbreak among infants, preschool-aged children and young adults in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Contributing factors for this outbreak included: low routine infant vaccination coverage, failure to conduct a "follow-up" campaign, presence of susceptible young adults, and the importation of measles virus, apparently from Europe. PAHO's strategy has been effective in interrupting measles virus circulation. This experience demonstrates that global measles eradication is an achievable goal using currently available measles vaccines. (+info)
Timing of development of measles-specific immunoglobulin M and G after primary measles vaccination. (6/862)A standard method for diagnosing measles is to detect measles-specific immunoglobulin M (IgM) in the serum of infected persons. Interpreting a positive IgM result from a person with suspected measles can be difficult if the person has recently received a measles vaccine. We have previously demonstrated that measles-specific IgM may persist for at least 8 weeks after primary vaccination, but it is unknown how quickly IgM appears. This study determined the timing of the rise of measles-specific IgM and IgG after primary measles vaccination with Schwartz vaccine. Two hundred eighty 9-month-old children from Ethiopia presenting for routine measles vaccination were enrolled. Sera were collected before and either 1, 2, 3, or 4 weeks after vaccination and tested for measles-specific antibodies by an IgM capture enzyme immunoassay (EIA) and by an indirect IgG EIA. A total of 209 of the 224 children who returned for the second visit had prevaccination sera that were both IgM and IgG negative. The postvaccination IgM positivity rates for these 209 children were 2% at 1 week, 61% at 2 weeks, 79% at 3 weeks, and 60% at 4 weeks. The postvaccination IgG positivity rates were 0% at 1 week, 14% at 2 weeks, 81% at 3 weeks, and 85% at 4 weeks. We conclude that an IgM-positive result obtained by this antibody capture EIA is difficult to interpret if serum is collected between 8 days and 8 weeks after vaccination; in this situation, the diagnosis of measles should be based on an epidemiologic linkage to a confirmed case or on the detection of wild-type measles virus.

Measles: effect of a two-dose vaccination programme in Catalonia, Spain. (7/862)The study reports incidences of measles in Catalonia, Spain, as detected by surveillance, and analyses the specific characteristics of the outbreaks reported for the period 1986-95. Incidences per 100,000 inhabitants were calculated for the period 1971-95. The following variables were studied: year of presentation, number of cases, median age, transmission setting, cases with a record of vaccination and preventable cases. Associations between variables were determined using odds ratios (OR). The incidence of measles declined from 306.3 cases in 1971 to 30.9 in 1995. A total of 50 outbreaks were investigated. The outbreaks that occurred in the last two years of the study had a higher likelihood of having a transmission setting other than primary school (OR = 3.9); a median case age > 10 years (OR = 7.2); and fewer than 6 cases (OR = 2.3). The characteristics of recent outbreaks, marked by a rise both in transmission outside the primary-school setting and in median age, indicate the need for the introduction of a specific vaccination programme at the end of adolescence in addition to control of school-related outbreaks.

Seroconversions in unvaccinated infants: further evidence for subclinical measles from vaccine trials in Niakhar, Senegal. (8/862)BACKGROUND: Increases in measles antibodies without rash-illnesses have been documented in previously vaccinated children exposed to measles cases. The phenomenon has been incompletely evaluated in young unvaccinated infants with immunity of maternal origin. METHODS: Monthly cohorts of newborns were prospectively randomized to vaccine and placebo control groups during a trial of high-titre vaccines in Niakhar, Senegal. Measles antibodies were assayed in blood samples of enrolled children collected at 5 months old, when controls received a placebo injection, and at 10 months, when the placebo group was given measles vaccine. Intensive prospective surveillance for measles was conducted throughout the trial. RESULTS: One-fifth (n = 53) of the placebo controls seroconverted, with known exposure to a measles case in only three of them. None of the seroconverters developed a measles-like rash. Sixteen-fold or greater increases in titres were noted in about one-quarter of them. Compared with placebo controls who did not seroconvert, seroconverters were more likely to have had exposure to a measles case and to travel, more likely to be boys than girls, and had significantly lower baseline antibody titres. Measles was endemic in the study area throughout the trial. Seroconversions did not adversely effect subsequent nutritional indices or mortality. CONCLUSIONS: Although laboratory errors and inadvertent injection of vaccine rather than placebo may have played some role, they do not fully explain the above observations, which are consistent with subclinical measles in the seroconverters. The possible role of subclinical measles in occult transmission, its potential effect on the type and duration of subsequent immunity, and its impact on response to primary vaccination need to be determined.

Trial of Additional Measles Vaccine to Reduce Child Mortality. Burkina Faso. - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Background: All observational studies and a few randomised controlled trials (RCT) suggest that early measles vaccine (MV), in particular an early two-dose strategy, has a much better effect on overall mortality than later MV. These results suggest that MV has a non-measles related beneficial effect on child survival.. Objective: To evaluate in a multi-center RCT the effect on child survival and other health indicators of a two-dose measles vaccination schedule by providing an additional dose of Edmonston-Zagreb (EZ) MV as soon as possible after 4 months of age as well as the standard measles vaccine at 9 months of age. Three trials are planned in Guinea-Bissau, Ghana and Burkina Faso. The investigators will test a 40-43% reduction of mortality at each site separately and a 32% reduction overall. Based on the results from the RCT, the investigators will assess the cost-effectiveness of the intervention.. Design, Burkina Faso: Newborns are followed through the Health and Demographic Surveillance ...
Comments on High Measles Rates Mean Kids, Adults Need Proper Vaccination: CDC
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that some adults be revaccinated with at least one dose of live attenuated measles vaccine. The recommendation is intended in particular to protect adults who may have received the killed measles vaccine between 1963 and 1967 and was not effective, the CDC says on its website.. But on Monday, Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDCs National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said that most adults should feel reassured that the shot they got as a kid or young adult is still protective.. "Most adults are protected against measles. Thats what the science says," Messonnier said. "That includes people who were born before measles vaccine was recommended, and even folks who only got a single dose.". The CDC is encouraging that certain adults at high risk talk with their doctors about whether they need a measles booster, Messonnier said. These include international travelers, health care workers, and folks living in ...
An evaluation of respiratory administration of measles vaccine for prevention of acute lower respiratory infections in children...
Measles was responsible for an estimated 100,000 deaths worldwide in 2008. Despite being a vaccine-preventable disease, measles remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality in young children. Although a safe and effective injectable measles vaccine has been available for over 50 years it has not been possible to achieve the uniformly high levels of coverage (required to achieve measles eradication) in most parts of the developing world. Aerosolised measles vaccines are now under development with the hope of challenging the delivery factors currently limiting the coverage of the existing vaccine. We used a modified CHNRI methodology for setting priorities in health research investments to assess the strengths and weaknesses of this emerging intervention to decrease the burden of childhood pneumonia. This was done in two stages. In Stage I, we systematically reviewed the literature related to emerging aerosol vaccines against measles relevant to several criteria of interest. Although there are a

A total of 27% of cases had visited a health facility 7 21 days before prodrome compared with only 6% of neighbourhood controls. As shown in Table 2, after controlling for measles immunization, sex, socioeconomic status, and number of children in the household, the adjusted OR for a health facility visit was 7.0 (95% CI = 4.2 11.6, P , 0.001). There was no significant interaction of age or sex in the association between health facility visit and measles. For the subgroup of severe measles cases, the OR for health facility attendance in this prodromal period was 8.9 (95% CI = 3.6 22.0).. Stratification by immunization status showed that health facility attendance and the presence of more than one child in the household appeared to be greater risk factors for measles in immunized than in non-immunized children. Among the 42 immunized cases with 94 age-matched immunized controls, the OR for health facility attendance was 24.7 (95% CI = 5.3 114.7, P ,0.001) and the OR for more than one child in the ...
New Inhalable Measles Vaccine May Lead to Vaccines for Other Diseases - Healthcanal.com : Healthcanal.com
The inhalable measles vaccine, developed by a team led by CU-Boulder chemistry and biochemistry Professor Robert Sievers, involves mixing "supercritical" carbon dioxide with a weakened form of the measles virus. The process produces microscopic bubbles and droplets that are dried to make the inhalable powder, which is dispensed into the mouths of patients using a small, cylindrical plastic sack with an opening like the neck of a plastic water bottle.. According to the World Health Organization, measles is one of the leading causes of death among young children. In 2008 there were an estimated 164,000 measles deaths in children worldwide - nearly 450 deaths a day - and India accounts for about two-thirds of global measles deaths in infants and children. "Clinical trials are the next vital step in making this vaccine widely available," he said.. "One of our primary goals of this project is to get rid of needles and syringes, because they frighten some people, they hurt, they can transmit diseases ...
Waning measles vaccine immunity (evidence for and against) | Vaccination News
From the article: Similar to immunity after natural measles infection, live measles vaccine-induced immunity has been thought to be lifelong. Vaccinees who subsequently develop measles have been considered primary vaccine failures, defined as the failure of the initial vaccination to elicit an appropriate immune response. Primary vaccine failures are believed to be caused by (1) interference by maternal antibody when vaccination occurs at a young age, (2) technical problems, such as improper vaccine storage or administration, or (2) other unknown reasons. Transmission of measles among older children in the United States, most of whom have been appropriately vaccinated, has raised the question of whether waning vaccine-induced immunity may also be responsible for some vaccine failures. Current vaccination policy as well as mathematical models assume that vaccine-induced immunity is life-long. If waning vaccine-induced immunity does occur, changes in measles vaccination strategies might be ...

Measles antibody levels in a vaccinated population in Brazil - WRAP: Warwick Research Archive Portal
An epidemiological study of measles-specific immunoglobulin G antibody levels was conducted using a representative sample of a vaccinated suburban population in Sao Paulo State, Brazil. The study aimed to determine immunity status in relation to age and infection or vaccination experience. 549 age-structured samples of sera, collected in 1990, were screened and calibrated to the international reference serum, using measles nucleoprotein in an enzyme immunoassay. In the age group with direct experience of vaccination (9 months to 15 years), whether routine or campaign, over 90% had detectable antibody greater than or equal to 50 miu/mL. However, 14% of these had antibody concentrations between 50 and 100 miu/mL and 30% between 50 and 255 miu/mL. In those over 15 years of age, 94% had antibody levels ,255 miu/mL, assumed to be the result of past infection. The study suggested that, within highly vaccinated populations, a proportion of individuals had measles antibody levels which may be ...

Background: Supplementary immunization activity (SIA) campaigns provide children with an additional dose of measles vaccine and deliver other interventions, including vitamin A supplements, deworming medications, and oral polio vaccines.. Objective: To assess the cost-effectiveness of the full SIA delivery platform in South Africa (SA).. Design: We used an epidemiologic cost model to estimate the cost-effectiveness of the 2010 SIA campaign. We used province-level campaign data sourced from the District Health Information System, SA, and from planning records of provincial coordinators of the Expanded Programme on Immunization. The data included the number of children immunized with measles and polio vaccines, the number of children given vitamin A supplements and Albendazole tablets, and costs.. Results: The campaign cost $37 million and averted a total of 1,150 deaths (95% uncertainty range: 990-1,360)- This ranged from 380 deaths averted in KwaZulu-Natal to 20 deaths averted in the Northern ...
People Born Before 1989 May Need Another Measles Vaccine
The U.S. is in the middle of the worst outbreak of measles since the disease was eradicated from the country in 2000. But while the majority of victims are children whose parents decided not to vaccinate them or people who have chosen to go unvaccinated, even some people who got the measles vaccine as children might still be at real risk, depending on their age.
Measles Vaccine Developer Warns Jewish Anti-Vaxxers | Truth, Praise and Help
This article was originally published in The Times of Israel.With almost no measles in the United States since the 1990s, todays generation of American parents are not familiar with the disease and buy in too easily to the anti-vaccination movement currently in vogue, said measles vaccine developer Dr. Samuel Katz.

Heat-Stable Measles Vaccine Produced by Spray Drying - PATH Vaccine Resource Library
This article, published in Vaccine, reports on the development of a heat-stable measles vaccine powder using a combination of unique stabilizers and mild spray-drying process conditions. The researchers identified spray drying as the optimal processing method for the preparation of dried vaccine, as it generally resulted in negligible process loss and comparable, if not better, storage stability compared to other processes. Key stabilizers identified during the formulation screening processes were L-arginine, human serum albumin, and a combination of divalent cations. ABSTRACT ONLY.

Innate Immune Defense Defines Susceptibility of Sarcoma Cells to Measles Vaccine Virus-Based Oncolysis | Journal of Virology
No significant progress has been achieved in the palliative treatment of sarcomas in recent years. Therefore, novel therapies are urgently needed.. In this study, we used a novel measles vaccine virus armed with a suicide gene (MeV-SCD) to infect eight sarcoma cell lines representing seven different sarcoma types. Five cell lines proved to be susceptible to MeV-mediated oncolysis in the absence of the prodrug 5-FC. Three cell lines showed a primary resistance to MeV-mediated oncolysis (MOI of 1), defined by a remnant tumor cell mass of ,50% at 4 days postinfection (dpi). Fortunately, this primary resistance could be overcome in two cell lines by the addition of 5-FC and a 10-fold increase in the applied virus dosage.. When aiming at unraveling the mechanisms of the phenomenon of primary resistance to MeV-mediated oncolysis, we first found that primary rates of MeV infection were lower in the resistant sarcoma cell lines than in the permissive cell lines. In addition, we were able to demonstrate ...

Olympics: Great Opportunity for More Vaccines? - SaneVax, Inc.
The situation is sickening. The pharmaceutical industry and accomplices are using the Olympics to promote vaccines. The promotion is, true to style, based on greed, lies and deception.. When we search in google under for example: olympics measles vaccine - we get many links showing that there is worldwide propaganda scaring people who travel to UK about measles "epidemics", telling them that they may catch measles and that they may infect others. To avoid people being unduly worried about the MMR vaccine, notice the deceptive way of describing the MMR vaccine by calling it the measles vaccine. Measles vaccine to many sounds less dangerous than MMR. If the promoters shout out loud that the vaccine is for measles, mumps and rubella and then try to scare people just about measles "epidemics" then many will question why they should get a vaccine for all three diseases if there is an epidemic just for measles.The promoters reckon,and probably this is the case that thousands of people will not do ...

Child dies after vaccination, doctors face action - SaneVax, Inc.
By IANS,. Submitted by admin4 on 22 July 2011 - 12:20pm. Lucknow : Action has been recommended against a deputy chief medical officer and another doctor after an infant died and two others took ill following administration of measles vaccine in Uttar Pradesh, an official said Friday.. While nine-month-old Shivansh died Thursday at the Chhatrapati Sahuji Maharaj Medical University (CSMMU) here, two other children - Lallu and Sadhu - are being treated for post-vaccination complication.. They were Wednesday administered measles vaccine under routine immunisation campaign in Awadhpur village in Barabanki, 30 km from Lucknow. On Thursday, they were admitted to the CSMMU.. "It appears prescribed norms were not followed while administering the vaccine," Barabanki Chief Medical Officer A.K. Chaudhary told reporters.. "The measles vaccine should have been utilised within four hours after dissolution but it was kept open for more than eight hours," he added.. "We have suspended an ANM (Auxiliary Nurse ...
Measles vaccine given with painless and easy-to-administer microneedle patches can immunize against measles at least as well as vaccine given with conventional hypodermic needles, according to research done by the Georgia Institute of Technology and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).. In the study, the researchers developed a technique to dry and stabilize the measles vaccine - which depends on a live attenuated virus - and showed that it remained effective for at least 30 days after being placed onto the microneedles. They also demonstrated that the dried vaccine was quickly released in the skin and able to prompt a potent immune response in an animal model.

Hannity Uses Measles Vaccine Debate To Swipe At Obama - NewsHounds
Leave it to Sean Hannity to turn a debate about measles vaccinations into an attack on President Obama.. On last nights Hannity show, host Sean Hannity hosted two doctors to discuss a recent outbreak of measles, a disease which had previously been declared "eliminated" in the U.S. It has touched off a major debate over vaccinations, especially among Republicans and the 2016 Republican candidates for president.. So, natch, right-wing foot soldier Hannity had to do his part for the cause.. First, Hannity made a show of support for Republican presidential candidate Governor Chris Christie who said parents should have a choice. "Now, I got my kids vaccinated," Hannity said in response. "But I believe parents should have a choice." Hannity didnt mention that Christie has since backtracked. Christie later said, "There is no question kids should be vaccinated.". Later, Hannity responded to a clip of President Obama saying, "There is every reason to get vaccinated." Smiling with malicious glee, ...

Vaccine vs. Virus: Which Is the Bigger Threat?
It is significant to note that, despite its reassuring jargon, the federal governments vaccination-promoting website, Vaccines.gov, chooses to ignore most pre-1963 numbers. Instead, it displays a graph illustrating the decline in overall U.S. measles cases - with no distinction of measles deaths - since the inoculation was introduced, a decidedly deceptive omission of earlier years data.. However, the VAERS database reveals a markedly different history of the measles vaccine. After a painstaking search through this federal database of adverse effects, Shilhavy reported, "The search result contained 108 deaths over this period [i.e., 2004 to 2015 - ed.], resulting from four different measles vaccines sold in the United States during the past 10 years." He continued, "This database reflects only deaths that were reported during the time frame, and therefore probably reflects a much lower number than actual deaths, since most doctors and health authorities believe vaccines are safe, and would not ...
CDC. As of May 11, 2015, the Berlin Senate Department of Health and Social Affairs has reported more than 1,700 cases of measles, which is about a 50% decrease since April. Most of the measles cases have been in Berlin and the states of Baden-Württemberg, Saxony, and Thuringia. Other states in Germany have 10 or fewer cases. A national immunization campaign was launched in June.. CDC recommends that travelers to Germany(http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/traveler/none/germany) protect themselves by making sure they are vaccinated against measles, particularly infants 6-11 months of age (1 dose of measles vaccine) and children 12 months of age or older (2 doses of measles vaccine). Clinicians should keep measles in mind when treating patients with fever and rash, especially if the patient has recently traveled internationally.. ...

nbcnews.com/ What's in a Measles Vaccine? - International Shia News Agency
Our immune system functions like an army or a police force,"says Dr. Walt Orenstein, a vaccine expert at Emory University who is a former assistant surgeon general and former head of the United States Immunization Program. "What a vaccine does is it gives the immune system practice so that if it encounters a germ it can destroy it.". But mild infection is not usually enough to make you sick - although one in six people can run a low fever, and one in 20 get a mild rash. They are not strongly contagious, but people with weakened immune systems such as cancer patients recovering from bone marrow transplants shouldnt get any live vaccine and should keep their distance from anyone whos recently had one.. About one in 3,000 people who get the MMR vaccine suffers a seizure, although its not usually dangerous, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.. Most people get the vaccine in a "cocktail" that protects against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), also known as German measles. The ...
President Trump Declares Measles Vaccine Important. - AGE OF AUTISM
Just the Vax: April 2013
I think this claim "We do not use the same MMR or Measles virus vaccine in the vaccine we have chosen to use" is a lie. We already know that the clinic have not looked at Walkers data, since they misrepresent his findings. There is actually no way the people at the clinic can know what vaccines the children Walker looked at had received, because it is not reported in the abstract and a full paper has not been published since 2006. Given that Arthur Krigsman is the senior author of the abstract and children have been flown to him certainly at least from the UK, it is not clear which measles vaccine strain they had been vaccinated with. The French Rouvax, CIC are offering contains the Schwarz strain, which is also the measles strain used in GSKs Priorix, often used in Europe, the Indian Sii M-Vax, also on offer at CIC contains the Edmonston-Zagreb strain, also contained in the Swiss MMR-Triviraten (Berna) (CIC also import vaccines from China and Russia, if someone knows what vaccine strain is in ...
