Mumps and mumps vaccine: a global review. (1/298)

Mumps is an acute infectious disease caused by a paramyxovirus. Although the disease is usually mild, up to 10% of patients can develop aseptic meningitis; a less common but more serious complication is encephalitis, which can result in death or disability. Permanent deafness, orchitis, and pancreatitis are other untoward effects of mumps. Based on data reported to WHO up to April 1998, mumps vaccine is routinely used by national immunization programmes in 82 countries/areas: 23 (92%) of 25 developed countries, 19 (86%) of 22 countries with economies in transition (mainly the Newly Independent States of the former Soviet Union), and 40 (24%) of 168 developing countries. Countries that have achieved high coverage have shown a rapid decline in mumps morbidity. Furthermore, in many of these countries, mumps-associated encephalitis and deafness have nearly vanished. This review considers the disease burden due to mumps; summarizes studies on the immunogenicity, efficacy, and safety of different strains of mumps vaccine; and highlights lessons learned about implementing mumps immunization in different countries. Countries already using mumps vaccine should monitor immunization coverage and establish routine mumps surveillance with investigation of outbreaks. Where mumps is targeted for elimination, countries need to add a second dose of mumps vaccine for children, keeping in mind that the disease may still occur in susceptible adults.  (+info)

The mumps virus neurovirulence safety test in Rhesus monkeys: a comparison of mumps virus strains. (2/298)

Wild type mumps viruses are highly neurotropic and a frequent cause of aseptic meningitis in unvaccinated humans. To test whether attenuated mumps viruses used in the manufacture of mumps vaccines have neurovirulent properties, a monkey neurovirulence safety test (MNVT) is performed. However, results with several mumps virus MNVTs have raised questions as to whether the test can reliably discriminate neurovirulent from nonneurovirulent mumps virus strains. Here, various mumps virus strains representing a wide range of neuropathogenicity were tested in a standardized MNVT. A trend of higher neurovirulence scores was observed in monkeys inoculated with wild type mumps virus versus vaccine strains, although differences were not statistically significant. Results indicated the need for further examination and refinement of the MNVT or for development of alternative MNVTs.  (+info)

Acute dysautonomia following mumps. (3/298)

Pure acute or subacute dysautonomia is a rare entity. Its etiology is as yet unknown. However, majority of these cases have a preceding viral infection such as herpes simplex, infectious mononucleosis, rubella or coxsackie B. A unique patient in whom acute dysautonomia followed mumps is reported.  (+info)

Genetic heterogeneity of mumps virus in the United Kingdom: identification of two new genotypes. (4/298)

A reverse transcriptase nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was developed to detect the small hydrophobic (SH) gene of mumps virus (MuV). Phylogenetic analysis was performed on the entire SH gene sequence (318 nucleotides) and the putative SH protein (57 amino acids). At least 4 MuV genotypes were identified in the United Kingdom between 1995 and 1998 by direct sequencing of 26 PCR amplicons from a variety of specimens. Comparison of these and GenBank sequences identified 2 new genotypes in the United Kingdom. The results suggest that, after the introduction of universal mumps vaccination in the United Kingdom in 1988, there appears to have been a switch from a predominant genotype to a heterogeneous group of strains.  (+info)

Decay of passively acquired maternal antibodies against measles, mumps, and rubella viruses. (5/298)

The decay of maternally derived antibodies to measles, mumps, and rubella viruses in Swiss infants was studied in order to determine the optimal time for vaccination. A total of 500 serum or plasma samples from infants up to 2 years of age were tested by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and fluorescent-antibody testing. The decline of antibody prevalence was slowest against the measles virus. By 9 to 12 months of age, only 5 of 58 (8.6%; 95% CI, 2.9 to 19.0) infants were antibody positive for the measles virus, and only 2 had levels above 200 mIU/ml. Mumps and rubella virus antibody seropositivity was lowest at 9 to 12 months of age with 3 of 58 (5. 2%; 95% CI, 1.1 to 14.4) infants and at 12 to 15 months with 1 of 48 (2.1%; 95% CI, 0.1 to 11.1) infants, respectively. Concentrations of passively acquired antibodies decreased rapidly within the first 6 months of life. We observed no significant differences in antibody prevalence or concentration according to gender in any age group. In conclusion, MMR vaccination at 12 instead of 15 months of age could reduce the pool of susceptible subjects in infancy and support the efforts to eliminate these infections, particularly in combination with a second vaccine dose before school entry.  (+info)

Infection with wild-type mumps virus in army recruits temporally associated with MMR vaccine. (6/298)

Four cases of mumps were reported among 180 army recruits who had received MMR vaccine 16 days earlier. Mumps serology, salivary mumps IgM and PCR tests for the SH gene were performed on the 4 cases and on 5 control recruits who remained well. PCR products were sequenced and the sequences compared to those of wild type and vaccine strains of mumps. Further salivary mumps IgM tests were performed on the remaining 171 recruits. Mumps infection was confirmed in the 4 cases but not in the 5 controls. The controls had serological evidence of prior immunity. The SH gene sequence found in the 4 cases was wild type. Saliva tests identified 2 additional recruits with mumps IgM, one of whom had presented with suspected mumps 2 days before the MMR vaccine was given. Thus 6 (5 symptomatic and 1 asymptomatic) cases of mumps in army recruits recently receiving MMR vaccine were not due to the vaccine but to coincidental infection with wild-type mumps virus. The probable index case was revealed by salivary mumps IgM tests. This study highlights the importance of appropriate investigation of illness associated with MMR vaccination.  (+info)

Nested PCR for rapid detection of mumps virus in cerebrospinal fluid from patients with neurological diseases. (7/298)

In this study, we have developed a reverse transcription (RT)-nested polymerase chain reaction (n-PCR) for the detection of mumps virus RNA in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from patients with neurological infections. A specific 112-bp fragment was amplified by this method with primers from the nucleoprotein of the mumps virus genome. The mumps virus RT-n-PCR was capable of detecting 0.001 PFU/ml and 0.005 50% tissue culture infective dose/ml. This method was found to be specific, since no PCR product was detected in each of the CSF samples from patients with proven non-mumps virus-related meningitis or encephalitis. Mumps virus RNA was detected in all 18 CSF samples confirmed by culture to be infected with mumps virus. Positive PCR results were obtained for the CSF of 26 of 28 patients that were positive for signs of mumps virus infection (i.e., cultivable virus from urine or oropharyngeal samples or positivity for anti-mumps virus immunoglobulin M) but without cultivable virus in their CSF. Overall, mumps virus RNA was detected in CSF of 96% of the patients with a clinical diagnosis of viral central nervous system (CNS) disease and confirmed mumps virus infection, while mumps virus was isolated in CSF of only 39% of the patients. Furthermore, in a retrospective study, we were able to detect mumps virus RNA in 25 of 55 (46%) CSF samples from patients with a clinical diagnosis of viral CNS disease and negative laboratory evidence of viral infection including mumps virus infection. The 25 patients represent 12% of the 236 patients who had a clinical diagnosis of viral CNS infections and whose CSF was examined at our laboratory for a 2-year period. The findings confirm the importance of mumps virus as a causative agent of CNS infections in countries with low vaccine coverage rates. In summary, our study demonstrates the usefulness of the mumps virus RT-n-PCR for the diagnosis of mumps virus CNS disease and suggests that this assay may soon become the "gold standard" test for the diagnosis of mumps virus CNS infection.  (+info)

A secondary school outbreak of mumps following the childhood immunization programme in England and Wales. (8/298)

Since the introduction of routine measles, mumps and rubella immunization for children in England and Wales in 1988, the incidence of mumps has declined steadily. We describe an outbreak of mumps in 1996 attacking 34 of a cohort of 98 schoolchildren born in 1982 and 1983. This is the largest outbreak in the UK since the introduction of the vaccine into the childhood immunization schedule. Salivary IgM assay was used as a simple, minimally invasive test to confirm the diagnosis. The occurrence of the outbreak demonstrates that British children who were just too old to receive mumps immunization in 1988 continue to be at risk of this disease as a result of diminished natural exposure. Further cases and outbreaks in this cohort are to be expected. Cohorts born before 1982 appear to be at less risk, presumably because of naturally acquired infection before the introduction of immunization.  (+info)

To County Health, Physician, Nurse, Hospital, Laboratorian, and KDHE Health PHIX Users:. KDHE has posted the report Increase in Number of Suspected Mumps Cases Being Reported - Summary and Laboratory Guidance on Mumps on PHIX.. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment is receiving an increased number of suspected mumps reports. Iowa, our neighbor to the east, is recording an increase in confirmed and probable mumps cases. Since Jan. 1, 2006, through Mar. 24, 2006, 187 probable and confirmed cases of mumps have been reported. Because clinical diagnosis of mumps may be unreliable, cases of suspected mumps should be laboratory confirmed. A suspected or confirmed case of mumps is reportable to the health department.. Patients presenting with glandular swelling without other apparent cause should be tested for mumps, if suspected. Mumps should not be ruled out in someone who is vaccinated if they have symptoms clinically consistent with mumps.. Mumps clinical description: An illness with ...
Dec. 13, 2016 -- Mumps[1] cases in the United States are at a 10-year high, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.. As of November, a total of 2,879 mumps infections had been reported in 45 states and the District of Columbia, more than twice the number of mumps cases reported in 2015.. A growing number of schools and colleges are dealing with mumps outbreaks. For example, the University of Missouris Columbia campus has confirmed 193 cases since the start of school in late August, CBS News reported.. One reason mumps can spread easily at colleges is dormitory living, according to Dr. Michael Grosso, medical director and CMO of Huntington Hospital/Northwell Health..

Mumps is part of the MMR-measles, mumps, and rubella-vaccine. You might think that the MMR vaccine is very effective against preventing infection from mumps. Well, you would only think that if you have not been reading about the problems with the mumps part of the MMR vaccine. And, it is hard to read about it since the MSM does not cover it.. What the MSM fails to tell you is that Merck, part of the Big Pharma vaccine cartel, has been in Federal Court since 2010 on fraud charges in conjunction with the mumps vaccine.[ii] You see, two Merck employees have assumed whistleblower status and accused Merck of falsifying MMR vaccine data to make the mumps part of the vaccine look much more efficacious than it really is. If the claims against Merck are true, than you would expect a resurgence of mumps infection-and that is what has happened. Studies have consistently shown that mumps antibodies wane much quicker as compared to measles and rubella antibodies after MMR vaccination.[iii]. Guess what? We ...
In the United States, the reported incidence of mumps declined after introduction of mumps vaccine in 1967 and the recommendation for its routine use in 1977 (3). After expanded recommendations for a 2-dose MMR vaccine schedule for measles control in 1989 (3), mumps cases declined further (Figure 4). During 2001--2003, fewer than 300 mumps cases were reported each year, a 99% decline from the 185,691 cases reported in 1968 (2). The current multistate mumps outbreak, with 2,597 cases reported through May 2, 2006, is the largest number of mumps cases reported to CDC in a single year since 1991, when 4,264 cases were reported (2). The first cases in the current outbreak were detected on a college campus in eastern Iowa in December 2005; the source of these initial cases is unknown (1). Although the age group most affected (38% of cases) has been young adults aged 18--24 years, many of whom are college students, the outbreak has spread to all age groups (1). Multiple factors might have contributed ...
The recent mumps outbreak in Iowa has people very concerned about their health. One dose of mumps vaccine prevents about 80% of mumps, two doses about 90%. There are still people at risk.
A substantial increase in the number of mumps outbreaks and outbreak-associated cases has occurred in the United States since late 2015 (1,2). To address this public health problem, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) reviewed the available evidence and determined that a third dose of measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine is safe and effective at preventing mumps. During its October 2017 meeting, ACIP recommended a third dose of a mumps virus-containing vaccine* for persons previously vaccinated with 2 doses who are identified by public health authorities as being part of a group or population at increased risk for acquiring mumps because of an outbreak. The purpose of the recommendation is to improve protection of persons in outbreak settings against mumps disease and mumps-related complications. This recommendation supplements the existing ACIP recommendations for mumps vaccination (3).
As undergraduates prepare to enjoy spring break with abandon, Harvard is cautioning traveling students in the wake of a mumps outbreak.. The total number of confirmed mumps cases has risen from six to nine within the past week, and mumps patients now live quarantined in the Houses and Harvard-owned properties, according to College Spokesperson Rachael Dane. Henry M. N. Brooks 19, who has mumps, said he was quarantined for the past few days in the Harvard Inn, and that meals were brought to him while he was in isolation. Now, with students set to depart for spring break this weekend, Harvard University Health Services Director Paul J. Barreira urged caution in order to minimize others exposure to mumps. With spring recess only a few days away, I know many of you will be leaving the Cambridge area, and I write to remind you that it is even more important to be vigilant in taking precautions to prevent the spread of mumps if you are planning to travel, Barreira wrote in an email to ...
MMPM : Mumps virus, together with parainfluenza types 1 through 4, respiratory syncytial virus, and measles virus are classified in the family Paramyxovirdae. Mumps is an acute infection that causes the painful enlargement of the salivary glands in approximately 70% to 90% of children (4-15 years of age) who develop clinical disease.(2) In 5% to 20% of postpubertal individuals, testicular pain (orchitis in males) and abdominal pain (oophoritis in females) can occur. Other complications include pancreatitis (<5% of cases) and central nervous system disease (meningitis/encephalitis) that occur rarely (about 1 in 6,000 cases of mumps). Widespread routine immunization of infants with attenuated mumps virus has changed the epidemiology of this virus infection. Since 1989, there has been a steady decline in reported mumps cases, with and average of 265 cases each year since 2001. However, a recent outbreak of mumps in 2006 reemphasized that this virus continued to persist in the population, and laboratory
Doctor answers on Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment, and More: Dr. Carson on what is the gold standard for laboratory confirmation of a mumps case: Two sets of blood tests will have to be performed in order to confirm the development of mumps disease. As is usual with other viral illnesses, mumps antibody (igm and igg) levels are performed during the first week of the illness (acute stage) and again about 4-6 weeks later during the recovery period. The IgM confirms that the infection is due to current mumps; the IgG level confirms immunity. for topic: What Is The Gold Standard For Laboratory Confirmation Of A Mumps Case
The HSE, today (Tuesday, 21st January 2020), urged anyone aged between 11 and 30 years of age who has not had two doses of the MMR vaccine, or who are unsure of their vaccine status, to avail of the offer of a free dose of the MMR vaccine due to a significant rise in cases of mumps.. Children aged 11-18 and adults aged up to 30 have been particularly affected by the mumps outbreak so it is vital that parents and young adults are aware that the MMR vaccine is the only way to stop the spread of mumps, according to public health specialist at the HSE Health Protection Surveillance Centre, Dr Suzanne Cotter.. Secondary schools and third level institutions have seen the highest incidences of mumps. During 2019 the number of mumps cases continued to rise and we saw 2,762 cases compared with 573 cases the previous year. To date in 2020, 253 cases have already been notified to the HSE.. Vaccination with MMR vaccine is the only way to protect against mumps. The vaccine also protects against measles and ...
On December 5, health officials in Johnson County, Texas reported an unusual outbreak of mumps - 28 cases, mostly in school-age children. Texas has had no more than 20 cases per year since 2011.. Were having more than a years worth of cases in one community, said Dr. Elvin Adams of the Texas Department of State Health Services. Its really unusual, he told the Star-Telegram.. Texas is not alone. All across the United Sates, mumps outbreaks are at their highest levels in the last 10 years. As of November 26, the CDC recorded 3,832 mumps cases in 45 states and Washington, D.C. - nearly triple the total in 2015, and the highest count since 2006.. The mumps comeback is especially unusual because most cases are occurring in teenagers and young adults who are fully vaccinated, according to Dr. Manisha Patel of the CDC Division of Viral Diseases.. That odd fact has several possible explanations. One is that mumps is highly-contagious and spreads easily in crowded college dormitories. Another ...
Why the new mumps outbreak puts you at risk Did you have the mumps when you were a child? If so, its one of the best ways to avoid the mumps now that youre older. If you didnt have the mumps, you could be at serious risk for contracting the childhood disease - even if youve had the vaccine. As you may know, Ive decried vaccines for decades. Why? Theyre toxic (they inject poisonous additives into you), they deny children their needed usual infections to develop a robust immune system, and now theres a third reason. Vaccines may not last a lifetime. And if they dont, you could contract the disease as an adult. Think it wont happen? Think again. Last week, at least 1,521 people in New York and New Jersey developed mumps. About 85% of the victims had the usual two doses of the MMR vaccine. What have they gotten for it? So far, 55 cases of swollen and painful testicles, five cases of pancreatitis, two cases of meningitis, one case of temporary
Mumps is a contagious disease that is caused by the mumps virus. Mumps typically starts with a few days of fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, and loss of appetite, and is followed by swelling of salivary glands. Anyone who is not immune from either previous mumps infection or from vaccination can get mumps.. Before the routine vaccination program was introduced in the United States, mumps was a common illness in infants, children and young adults. Because most people have now been vaccinated, mumps has become a rare disease in the United States. ...
About a year after mumps first arrived on campus, Harvard University Health Services Director Paul J. Barreira said there are currently no confirmed cases of the virus on campus.. Last spring, a months-long outbreak culminated in 66 total cases of mumps at Harvard. Although the disease died down by the start of the fall semester, HUHS confirmed five active cases of mumps on campus in Dec. 2016. HUHS confirmed the first two active cases of mumps at the College and Divinity School in Feb. 2016. The disease had infected 58 Harvard affiliates by the end of the 2016 spring semester and spread to nearby universities like Boston University and Tufts. Barreira said mumps outbreaks are not uncommon at large universities.. Youve got this dense living arrangement, and youre all sharing water bottles and everything else so its easy to spread the virus, he said. In spring 2016, HUHS encouraged mumps patients to quarantine themselves at the Harvard Inn, and many infected students spent their spring ...
Rocklin reminds members of the campus community to make sure theyre up-to-date on their vaccinations.. Earlier it has been reported that the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign has reported dozens of mumps cases this summer prompting vaccination clinics for students and staff to receive booster MMR vaccines.. Vaccination clinics are ongoing at the McKinley Health Center all next week.. In addition, the University of Missouri has reported a cluster of mumps cases in recent weeks. The most recent numbers according to the Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health and Human Services is nine confirmed cases and four probable cases of mumps have been identified in the Columbia area. The Student Health Center is working with local and state public health to identify other possible cases and to minimize or prevent additional cases..

WEDNESDAY, Dec. 21, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Mumps cases have hit a 10-year high in the United States, and the contagious disease is especially common on college campuses, an infectious disease expert says.. Before a mumps vaccine became widely available in the United States in 1967, nearly every child would get infected. Since then, cases have declined more than 99 percent, but outbreaks still occur, according to Dr. Cristie Columbus. An infectious disease specialist, she is vice dean of Texas A&M College of Medicines Dallas campus.. Symptoms include enlarged salivary glands -- which cause puffy cheeks and a swollen jaw -- along with fever, fatigue and head and muscle aches. Up to 40 percent of people with mumps have mild symptoms or none at all and may not realize they are sick. But, they can still spread the disease to others.. Mumps symptoms typically begin 16 to 18 days after infection. They last a week to 10 days.. Although most people recover completely in a few weeks, sometimes serious ...
If it wasnt unvaccinated kids spreading mumps, then what caused the outbreak? Some scientists-including Dr. Paul Offit, who wants to expand the government schedule of vaccines even more and who has a notorious conflict of interest-are suggesting that the reason for the increase in mumps cases is due to the waning effectiveness of the vaccine. Some think that the vaccine may not fit the current strain of mumps. Of course, those who think, like Offit, that kids could get 10,000 vaccines at once and be perfectly fine will see this evidence and suggest that kids should get an additional MMR shot! Note that the MMR has been considered perhaps the second riskiest shot. Note also that the mumps vaccine might be safer if it werent combined with the others, but no one in the medical establishment wants to acknowledge that point ...
Mumps is a contagious disease that is caused by the mumps virus. About half of the people who get mumps have very mild or no symptoms, and dont know they are infected. For those who do show symptoms, mumps typically starts with a few days of fever, headache, muscle aches, tiredness, and loss of appetite, and is followed by swelling of salivary glands.. Mumps spreads from an infected person to a healthy person through coughing, sneezing and regular conversation. People with mumps usually recover after a week or two, but mumps can occasionally cause serious complications. The most common complication is inflammation of the testicles in boys who have reached puberty. Other rarer complications include swelling of the brain and/or tissue covering the brain and spinal cord; swelling of the ovaries and/or breasts in girls who have reached puberty; and deafness. ...
In the last 15 years, several mumps outbreaks have occurred among college students, sports teams and in close-knit communities across the United States. Two possible contributing factors include waning vaccine-induced immunity and differences between the strain of mumps virus now circulating and the vaccine strain, which is part of the standard measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) childhood vaccine.. Overall, the MMR vaccine has been great, with a 99 percent reduction in measles, mumps and rubella disease and a significant reduction in associated complications since its introduction, says Sri Edupuganti, MD, MPH, associate professor of medicine (infectious diseases) at Emory University School of Medicine and medical director of the Hope Clinic of Emory Vaccine Center. What were seeing now with these mumps outbreaks is a combination of two things - a few people were not making a strong immune response to begin with, and the circulating strain has drifted away from the strain that is in the ...
The United States was on track to eliminate mumps in the early 2000s through vaccination coverage, Hotez explained. But there were multi-state mumps outbreaks in 2006 and in 2009-2010, both of which affected thousands of Americans, particularly teenagers and young adults. And in 2016, there were more than 5,700 mumps cases, according to the CDC.. ...
The number of mumps cases in Hawaii has jumped to 81, the state Health Department announced today, advising adults born since 1957 to get vaccinated if they arent already.. The figure is 16 cases more than the previous total, which was reported Tuesday, and reflects some results received over the Memorial Day weekend. Mumps is a highly contagious respiratory disease.. Most of the new cases can be tied to previously confirmed illnesses. None of the cases has required hospitalization, according to the department.. The DOH is recommending all adults born in or after 1957, without evidence of immunity to mumps, who cannot verify previous MMR vaccination, should receive at least one MMR vaccine dose, the department said in a news release. Individuals with only one documented MMR dose, are strongly encouraged to consider receiving a second MMR vaccine dose.. MMR is the combined measles, mumps and rubella vaccine.. ...
According to University Health Services (UHS), three cases of mumps have been confirmed on the University Park Campus. Anyone showing symptoms of mumps is asked to not attend THON activities this weekend.. Symptoms of mumps include tender swollen glands below the ear or along the jawline on one or both sides of the face and neck. Headache, fever, chills, and cold-like symptoms are included as well.. Anyone who has been in close contact with a student confirmed or suspected of having mumps is also asked to refrain from attending THON.. Mumps is a highly infectious disease passed through saliva and respiratory secretions. People with mumps are considered infectious from three days before swelling begins through five days after the start of swelling. For most people, two doses of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine provide adequate immunity to the infection.. For more information on the alert, please keep reading here.. ...
Children who arent vaccinated against mumps could end up spending weeks at home under new advice from public-health leaders. Columbus and Franklin County health commissioners Dr. Teresa Long and Susan Tilgner have sent letters to school leaders to pass along to parents that encourage vaccination and inform them that children who arent fully vaccinated might have to stay home for 25 days or longer if mumps cases start to cluster in schools.. Children who aren t vaccinated against mumps could end up spending weeks at home under new advice from public-health leaders.. Columbus and Franklin County health commissioners Dr. Teresa Long and Susan Tilgner have sent letters to school leaders to pass along to parents that encourage vaccination and inform them that children who aren t fully vaccinated might have to stay home for 25 days or longer if mumps cases start to cluster in schools..

When we hear the word mumps, we picture a young boy wearing wool trousers and suspenders with comically swollen cheeks, left behind while his family takes the brand new Model T to town to see the latest Charlie Chaplin flick. Maybe were too imaginative but nonetheless, it sounds like a disease from the past.. So, imagine our surprise when we started hearing reports of a mumps outbreak at Ohio State University (OSU) in early January. What started as a few cases has now spread to more than 300 people throughout the state. And news of other mumps outbreaks have cropped up at Fordham University in New York and the University of Illinois.. The kicker? Most of those affected have been vaccinated.. How is this possible? If these people were vaccinated, how did they still get mumps? Wasnt the vaccine effective?. The answer is complicated, and there are a few things you need to consider:. 1. The majority of people getting sick with the mumps are vaccinated -- but thats because almost everyone is. The ...
The best way to protect your kids is to make sure theyre immunized against mumps.. For most kids, mumps protection is part of the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine (MMR) or measles-mumps-rubella-varicella vaccine (MMRV). They get these when theyre 12-15 months old and again when theyre 4-6 years old.. Sometimes people who have been vaccinated still get mumps. But their symptoms will be much milder than if they had not gotten the vaccine.. During a mumps outbreak, doctors may recommend more shots of the MMR vaccine for some people who are more likely to get mumps. Your doctor will have the most current information.. ...
A rise in cases of Mumps in Canada has public health officials asking young adults to check if they need a vaccination booster. The standard vaccination is two doses starting with the first dose at 12 through 15 months of age, and the second dose at 4 through 6 years of age. Teens and adults also should also be up to date on their MMR vaccination. *(measles, mumps & rubella). Mumps is a viral infection that is contagious and spread through saliva and respiratory droplets, causing swelling of the salivary glands. ** Prior to having a vaccination against mumps available in the mid-sixties in Canada, mumps among school-age children was common in fact a rite of passage. In early 1970s the vaccine was combined to offer protection against measles, mumps. and rubella. (MMR).. But providing a second round of the vaccine wasnt practiced until the 1990s, which has led to a small gap in immunity for those born between 1970 and 1994.. The gap in immunity for those that have not had a second dose is one ...
Warnings have been issued to university students in Dublin after the HSE confirmed that mumps cases have increased as students return to schools and colleges.

[TheJournal.ie, 25 October]. ...
MMR vaccine doses should be separated by at least 4 weeks. A person should receive no more than 3 doses of mumps-containing vaccine.. Before vaccines were available, nearly everyone was infected with mumps during childhood. The majority of people born before 1957 are likely to have been infected with mumps and therefore are presumed to be protected. During the mumps outbreak, persons born before 1957 who are unsure if they had mumps disease previously should talk to their healthcare provider about vaccination.. In general, although it is not ideal, receiving extra doses of vaccine poses no medical problem.. Healthcare providers should report any suspected cases of mumps to DOH immediately by calling the disease reporting line at (808) 586-4586.. ...
Due to increased mumps activity in Hamilton and Ontario, City of Hamilton Public Health reminds parents of children attending school to ensure their childs vaccine records are up to date. Currently, there are less than 5 cases of mumps in Hamilton, but more cases could be expected with the outbreak in Toronto and neighbouring communities.. Mumps is an infection caused by a virus. Most often it causes fever and tenderness and swelling the saliva (spit) glands located near the jaw line below the ears. Mumps is spread when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. Mumps can also be spread through contact with the saliva of an infected person through kissing, sharing drinking and eating utensils such as cups, straws, forks or spoons.

Id like to share some new and shocking information about mumps vaccination and how it has been linked to 94% HIGHER rates of mumps outbreaks in those vaccinated against the disease! The New England Journal of Medicine released a study in November 2012 that looked at a recent mumps outbreak in an orthodox Jewish community in the United States. The outbreak occurred June 2009 - June 2010 and included 3,502 children. Researchers looked at 1,648 clinical specimens confirming mumps and found that 89% of those who contracted the disease had been vaccinated at least twice for mumps and another 8% had received at least one dose of the mumps vaccination. Thats 97% of those vaccinated that contracted the disease while only 3% were unconfirmed as to having been vaccinated before ...
Dear Reader,. Mumps is a viral infection that mostly occurs in children aged 5 to 14 years, and causes swelling of the salivary glands at the top of the jaw, near the ears. To quickly answer your question, people who have already had mumps are unlikely to get mumps again since having it once usually results in lifelong immunity. The small percentage of those who do become reinfected are likely to experience milder illness. Additionally, its good to note that if a person had suspected that they had mumps but it was never diagnosed by a health care provider, they are not considered immune. In that case, getting the vaccine is still recommended. Because the risk is low for people whove previously had mumps to become infected again (or for those who have been previously vaccinated to become infected), its worth considering what else might be going on to cause the concern.. For someone whos experiencing pain or swelling in their salivary glands and has already had mumps before, it is possible ...
Introduction, 2004 Table 1: List of Reportable Diseases, 2004. Table 2: Cases of Selected Communicable Diseases Reported, 2004. Four cases of mumps were reported to MDH during 2004; a total of 23 mumps cases were reported between 20002004. Three of the case-patients were white, non-Hispanic males, ages 22, 44 and 50 years. The fourth case-patient was a 37-year-old white, non-Hispanic female. All four cases had an unknown history of vaccination for mumps. Between 2002 and 2004, eight of the 10 cases reported have occurred in adults, highlighting the need to assess the mumps immunization status of adults.. No source case was identified for two of the cases (ages 22 and 50 years). The 44-year-old reported a history of domestic travel that included meeting with persons from numerous other states and Canada. He and the female case-patient were epidemiologically linked. Transmission of mumps had not previously been identified in Minnesota since 1999.. All four cases were laboratory confirmed by ...

Mumps is a viral illness that can cause fever, body aches, headaches, fatigue, swelling of the salivary glands or pain with chewing or swallowing. About one-third of people who contract the mumps virus do not develop any symptoms. It is most commonly spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes, and a non-infected person inhales respiratory droplets that contain the virus. Those infected with mumps are usually contagious from two days before to five days after they develop symptoms.. Up to half of people who get mumps have very mild or no symptoms, and therefore do not know they were infected with mumps. Common symptoms include:. ...
Just this week, an outbreak of mumps among nearly 2000 people in New Jersey and New York has raised alarm among infectious disease authorities. The outbreak itself is not unusual, though.

Mumps is a virus-Encompass HealthCare and Wound Medicine[/caption]. After the recent mumps outbreak at the Ohio State University and its subsequent spread beyond campus and into the community, its a good time to review what you can do to avoid contracting the infection, and what you can do if you become infected.. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), mumps is a serious disease caused by a virus. Symptoms include fever, headache, and swollen glands. Mumps infection can lead to deafness, meningitis (infection of the brain and spinal cord covering), painful swelling of the testicles or ovaries, and, rarely, death.. Children should receive their first vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella at 12 to 15 months, and the second dose at 4 to 6 years.. Mumps is a highly infectious disease that spreads the same way as a cold or flu does - through respiratory droplets when someone coughs or sneezes. Its recommended that patients have five days of isolation after diagnosis. ...
Because mumps is a contagious virus, people in close proximity have a higher probability of spreading and contracting the disease. The possible low vaccination rate of those in detention facilities may also play a part in the spread among detainees. The probability of mumps increases among those who a common living space and participate in collective activities. Contact and with others and with items touched by those infected is a notable way the disease is passed from one person to another. CDC cites coughing, sneezing and even talking as ways to spread mumps. Sharing items such as cups and eating utensils and touching other surfaces that may have been exposed to the virus also raise the probability of contracting the disease.. ...

GRANT COUNTY, Wis. - The Grant County Health Department has seen a sharp increase in the number of mumps cases reported in the county.. Grant County Health Department Director Jeff Kindrai said there have been 52 reports and 23 confirmed cases of the mumps since October 2016.. Currently, theres outbreaks that weve been told about in both Iowa and Illinois, and we border both of those states, so its possible that we could get cases just about anywhere in the county, Kindrai said.. He said people in their mid-20s have been the most affected, but the health department has seen people younger than 15 and older than 55 also get the disease.. Its still an active outbreak and some cases are still under investigation, Kindrai said.. The disease, which causes the salivary glands to swell, is very contagious.. If people go to work or school when theyre ill, theyre much more likely to transmit it because its spread by droplets of saliva and close contact, Kindrai said.. University of ...

Rubella and mumps virus vaccine live is an active immunizing agent used to prevent infection by the rubella and mumps viruses. It works by causing your body to produce its own protection (antibodies) against the virus. Rubella (also known as German measles) is a serious infection that causes miscarriages, stillbirths, or birth defects in unborn babies when pregnant women get the disease. Mumps is an infection that can cause serious problems, such as encephalitis and meningitis, which affect the brain. In addition, adolescent boys and men are very susceptible to a condition called orchitis, which causes pain and swelling in the testicles and scrotum and, in rare cases, sterility. Also, mumps infection can cause spontaneous abortion in women during the first 3 months of pregnancy. While immunization against rubella and mumps is recommended for all persons 12 months of age and older, it is especially important for women of childbearing age and persons traveling outside the U.S. If rubella and mumps ...

Background: Before the widespread use of vaccine, mumps was the most common cause of viral meningitis (up to 10% of mumps infections). Vaccination programs have resulted in a drop of more than 99% in the number of reported mumps cases in the United States and Canada. Although rare in Canada, outbreaks have recently occurred throughout the world, including a large outbreak in the United Kingdom, where more than 56 000 cases were reported in 2004-2005. Methods: Two recent outbreaks in Nova Scotia were investigated by public health officials. Cases were defined by laboratory confirmation of infection (i.e., isolation of mumps virus by culture) or clinical diagnosis in people epidemiologically linked to a laboratory-confirmed case. The people infected were interviewed to determine possible links and to identify contacts. Mumps virus was cultured from urine and throat specimens, identified via reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and subjected to phylogenetic analysis to identify ...
Mumps virus, together with parainfluenza types 1 through 4, respiratory syncytial virus, and measles virus are classified in the family Paramyxovirdae. Mumps is an acute infection which causes the painful enlargement of the salivary glands in approximately 70% to 90% of children (4-15 years of age) who develop clinical disease. In 5% to 20% of postpubertal individuals, testicular pain (orchitis in males) and abdominal pain (oophoritis in females) can occur. Other complications include pancreatitis (,5% of cases) and central nervous system disease (meningitis/encephalitis) that occur rarely (about 1 in 6,000 cases of mumps).. Widespread routine immunization of infants with attenuated mumps virus has changed the epidemiology of this virus infection. Since 1989, there has been a steady decline in reported mumps cases, with and average of 265 cases each year since 2001. However, a recent outbreak of mumps in 2006 re-emphasized that this virus continued to persist in the population, and laboratory ...

By immunoprecipitation analysis using antisera against oligo peptides synthesized based on the deduced N-terminal and C-terminal amino acid sequences of the SH proteins of the mumps virus, the SH protein was detected in mumps virus-infected cells. The SH protein expressed from cDNA by the vaccinia-T7 expression system was recovered in the membrane fraction. Association of the SH protein with the membrane was resistant to high salt, EDTA, and alkaline treatment but sensitive to detergents. Indirect immunofluorescence experiments showed that the SH protein is involved in the exocytotic pathway. These data indicate that the SH protein is a membrane protein. Treatment of microsomes with TPCK-trypsin suggested that the SH protein is oriented in the membrane with its C-terminal facing the cytoplasm. Furthermore the SH protein was not detected in a particular strain (Enders strain) of mumps virus, indicating that the mumps virus SH protein is not essential for virus replication.

Throat swab specimens were collected from patients and immediately transported on icepacks to the Guangxi CDC. RNA was extracted from original samples and supernatants of Vero/hSLAM-cell cultures (3) by using the Viral RNA Mini Kit (QIAGEN, Valencia, CA, USA). We amplified extracted RNA by using the SuperScript-III Platinum One-Step Reverse Transcription PCR System (Invitrogen, Waltham, MA, USA) and primers for the small hydrophobic (SH) gene and hemagglutinin-neuraminidase (HN) gene as described (4,5). All throat swab specimens were positive for mumps virus by reverse transcription PCR. Mumps virus isolation was achieved for 8 (61.5%) of 13 specimens.. PCR products were sequenced by Life Technologies (Shanghai, China). We performed analyses of nucleotide sequences of SH and HN genes and deduced amino acid sequences by using BioEdit (6) and the neighbor-joining method in MEGA6 software (7). In accordance with World Health Organization mumps virus nomenclature (8), viruses were named and assigned ...
The single-dose measles and mumps vaccines, which Merck discontinued in 2009, were a great option for parents who have religious objections to the rubella vaccine. Since 2009, many of parents have been refusing the entire MMR combination vaccine. With more choices, we can achieve more cooperation.. For those who are curious, some religious objections to the development of the rubella vaccine are described below:. Development of the rubella vaccine actually involved not one, but 28 abortions. Twenty-seven abortions were performed to isolate the virus and one abortion (WI-38) to culture the vaccine. The vaccines strain is called RA 27/3 (R=Rubella, A=Abortus, 27=27th fetus tested, 3=3rd tissue explanted). Rubella, or German measles, is usually a harmless childhood disease. Ironically, rubella is most dangerous for preborn infants, who have a 20 to 25 percent chance of contracting congenital rubella syndrome if their mothers catch rubella during the first trimester. Scientists at the Wistar ...
As a result, they said, Merck was able to produce test results showing that the vaccine was 95 percent effective, even though more accurate tests would have shown a lower success rate. The plaintiffs said these false results kept competitors from trying to produce their own mumps vaccines, since they were unable to match the effectiveness Merck claimed ...
154. As set forth above, in violation of 31 U.S.C. § 3729(a)(2), Merck also knowingly made, used, or caused to be made or used, false records or statements to obtain payment or approval by the government of Mercks false or fraudulent claims for purchases of its mumps vaccine when Merck, among other things: (i) failed to disclose that its mumps vaccine was not as effective as Merck represented, (ii) used improper testing techniques, (iii) manipulated testing methodology, (iv) abandoned undesirable test results, (v) falsified test data, (vi) failed to adequately investigate and report the diminished efficacy of its mumps vaccine, (vii) falsely verified that each manufacturing lot of mumps vaccine would be as effective as identified in the labeling, (viii) falsely certified the accuracy of applications filed with the FDA, (ix) falsely certified compliance with the terms of the CDC purchase contract, (x) engaged in the fraud and concealment described herein for the purpose of illegally ...

Aim: To analyze the reasons for epidemic outbreaks of measles, mumps and viral hepatitis A and to propose measures to prevent them in future. Materials and methods: Тhe incidence of measles, mumps and hepatitis A in Plovdiv region was studied for the period 2006-2010. An analysis of the age structure of the patients was made, while taking into account the time for routine immunization performed against measles and mumps (first and second dose). Results: In 2006-2009 single cases of measles were found occasionally, but in 2010 they were 2787 (incidence 395/100,000). Most of them (51%) were for ages 13 months-12years, 27%-0-13 months and 11%-13 to 18 years. The incidence of mumps for 2006-2010 varied widely, and has increased significantly in 2007 (130/100,000) and 2008 (169/100,000). The majority of patients (over 34%) during the epidemics were aged 13 months-12years, and over 26% of them-13-19 years. For the period 2006-2010 the incidence of hepatitis A ranged from 2.98/100, 000 (2009) to 426/100,000

SOUTH ZONE - Two mumps outbreaks, declared in the South and Edmonton Zones of Alberta Health Services (AHS) on February 16 and March 28, respectively, have been declared over.
The virus reportedly occurred between the dates of Feb. 11 and Mar. 12, and has affected both men and women ranging in age from 18 to 48. Officials are looking into the initial exposure, the people who became infected and any links that can lead to more information.. The mumps virus is spread through saliva passed through a cough or sneeze, or by sharing beverages and utensils with someone who has the virus. Symptoms include fever, muscle aches, headaches, fatigue and swelling of the salivary glands. People who have previously experienced the virus or have received an MMR vaccination are not susceptible to contracting the virus. Since the introduction of the MMR vaccine, mumps has not been as common. However, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, prior to the introduction of the vaccine, it was a common illness among infants, children and young adults.. There are currently treatments for the virus, however, recovery time is typically around two weeks, with some cases ...
Most states have enacted laws requiring college students to obtain the MMR vaccine in order to attend their universities. This vaccine allegedly offers protection against the diseases measles, mumps and rubella. The effectiveness of Mercks MMR vaccine against mumps has been questioned by many scientists.. Meanwhile, the past five years have witnessed skyrocketing increases of mumps outbreaks across college campuses, among those students vaccinated, providing further evidence of the MMR vaccines failure. The MMR vaccine has been associated with injuries and deaths, while the diseases of measles and mumps which it targets are generally mild and resolve on their own.. To add to the insanity of these vaccine policies, campus authorities have urged students to receive booster MMR shots, after the failed MMR vaccines have resulted in mumps outbreaks among those vaccinated. This combination of events begs the question of whether the MMR college vaccine policies make any sense and what better ...
Dear Concerned about the future,. Mumps, which is an acute viral illness usually occurring in childhood and early adolescence, primarily causes inflammation and swelling of the salivary glands. However, in young men, mumps can also cause inflammation and swelling in one or both testes. This condition is called orchitis and it develops in approximately 25 percent of all mumps cases in males. Orchitis usually affects one testis, making it tender and painful for about two to four days, and potentially resulting in shrinkage of the affected testis to smaller than normal size. In extremely rare cases, orchitis can lead to sterility, as the damage to the testes through inflammation can cause defective sperm. As this is a concern for you, you may want to undergo a semen analysis to determine the number, shape, and degree of motility (ability to move around) of your sperm. A health care provider should be able to perform this analysis for you, and if there did appear to be a fertility problem, you would ...

Measles (also known as coughing measles, hard measles, morbilli, red measles, rubeola, and 10-day measles) is an infection that is easily spread from one person to another. Infection with measles can cause serious problems, such as stomach problems, pneumonia, ear infections, sinus problems, convulsions (seizures), brain damage, and possibly death. The risk of serious complications and death is greater for adults and infants than for children and teenagers. Mumps is an infection that can cause serious problems, such as encephalitis and meningitis, which affect the brain. In addition, teenage boys and men are very susceptible to a condition called orchitis, which causes pain and swelling in the testicles and scrotum, and in rare cases, sterility. Also, mumps infection can cause spontaneous abortion (miscarriage) in women during the first 3 months of pregnancy. Rubella (also known as German measles) is a serious infection that causes miscarriages, stillbirths, or birth defects in unborn babies ...

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) _ The Illinois Department of Public Health says the state has 73 known mumps cases right now and more than two-thirds are in Champaign County. State and local health officials say the number of cases in the Champaign area is at 50 and could climb.
This statement from the Center for Disease Control very briefly summarizes the characteristics of mumps, and then describes live-mumps-virus vaccine, including adverse effects and immunity response. The use of the vaccine is reviewed, for dosage, in relation to age, and precautions and contraindications. Five bibliographic references are appended. ...
The mumps outbreak at Ohio State University has increased from 11 students to 13, officials said today. Cases have been confirmed in seven females and six males, 18 to 22 years old, said Dr. Mary Lynn Kiacz, OSU student-life medical director. None has been hospitalized.
The paramyxovirus that causes mumps is harbored in the saliva and is spread by sneezing, coughing, and other direct contact with another persons infected saliva. Once the person is exposed to the virus, symptoms generally occur in 14 to 24 days. Initial symptoms include chills, headache , loss of appetite, and a lack of energy. However, an infected person may not experience these initial symptoms. Swelling of the salivary glands in the face (parotitis) generally occurs within 12 to 24 hours of the above symptoms. Accompanying the swollen glands is pain on chewing or swallowing, especially with acidic beverages, such as lemonade. A fever as high as 104°F (40°C) is also common. Swelling of the glands reaches a maximum on about the second day and usually disappears by the seventh day. Once individuals have contracted mumps, they become immune to the disease, despite how mild or severe their symptoms may have been. While the majority of cases of mumps are uncomplicated and pass without incident, ...
Mumps virus, together with parainfluenza types 1 through 4, respiratory syncytial virus, and measles virus are classified in the family Paramyxovirdae. Mumps is an acute infection which causes the painful enlargement of the salivary glands in approximately 70% to 90% of children (4-15 years of age) who develop clinical disease. In 5% to 20% of postpubertal individuals, testicular pain (orchitis in males) and abdominal pain (oophoritis in females) can occur. Other complications include pancreatitis (,5% of cases) and central nervous system disease (meningitis/encephalitis) that occur rarely (about 1 in 6,000 cases of mumps).. Widespread routine immunization of infants with attenuated mumps virus has changed the epidemiology of this virus infection. Since 1989, there has been a steady decline in reported mumps cases, with and average of 265 cases each year since 2001. However, a recent outbreak of mumps in 2006 re-emphasized that this virus continued to persist in the population, and laboratory ...
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio health officials have distributed more than 11,800 doses of vaccines to try to stem recent outbreaks of measles and mumps in the state.
One thing that many people dont realize is that you can insist on the monovalent (one disease only) form of vaccines, where available! For example, measles, rubella, and mumps vaccines are available separately from Merck & Co. The measles-only vaccine is called Attenuvax, the rubella-only is Meruvax, and the mumps-only is Mumpsvax. With all the concern over the MMR, some parents are assessing which diseases they are most concerned about, and vaccinating for that disease only. For example, mumps, while no fun, is not generally a fatal or life-altering disease if contracted as a child, so some parents are choosing to hold off on the mumps vaccine until the child is older (but before the age when contracting mumps can be problematic), when the childs immune and general system are better able to handle yet another vaccine. Many parents are now also insisting on thimerosal-free, individual vaccines, due to the serious and legitimate concern about the thimerosal/mercury poisoning, and its possible ...
A radial haemolysis test was used to investigate immunity to mumps. Antibody was found in 92 (42%) out of 220 children aged up to 5 years, 124 (78%) out of 159 children aged 6--10 years, 192 (86%) out of 222 children aged 11 years, 138 (92%) out of 150 children aged 15 years, and 280 (95%) out of 296 women attending an antenatal clinic. A group of 307 cadets aged 16--18 years were also tested and interviewed: 133 (95%) out of 140 who said that they had had mumps and 108 (87%) out of 124 who said that they had not had mumps were found to have antibody. The results suggest that tests for immunity to mumps by radial haemolysis would permit more rational use of mumps-specific immunoglobulin and attenuated mumps vaccine. ...
Mumps virus (MuV) is an enveloped, non-segmented, negative-sense RNA virus that causes mumps. MuV belongs to the genus Rubulavirus and family Paramyxovirus. Humans are the only natural host of MuV. MuV is transmitted through respiratory droplets (saliva or mucus), direct contact, or contact with surfaces carrying MuV. MuV is able to bind to host epithelial cells via haemagglutinin-neuraminidase (HN) and fusion (F) glycoproteins. Small hydrophobic (SH) protein is presumed to block TNFα-mediated apoptosis. Non-structural proteins NS1 and NS2 (V proteins) inhibit IFN production and signaling. ...
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Public health officials tracking a growing outbreak of mumps in central Ohio say four-fifths of the cases confirmed so far are linked to Ohio State University. Health officials f
Leydig-cell function was assessed in 27 men with acute mumps orchitis by measuring plasma testosterone concentrations before and after the administration of human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG). The test was also performed on groups of patients with other febrile viral infections and mumps without orchitis and on healthy euspermic men. The concentrations both before and after HCG were significantly lower in patients in the acute phase of mumps-but not in those with other viral infections and mumps without orchitis-than in the healthy men. Basal concentrations of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinising hormone (LH) were significantly increased in patients with acute mumps orchitis, while an exaggerated response to LH-releasing hormone was noted in four patients after the acute phase of the disease. Raised plasma LH concentrations were also found in several patients with viral infections, including mumps without orchitis. There appeared to be no particular merit of any of the treatments ...

Seventy-seven patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) who were in complete remission and whose therapies had been stopped for at least 6 months before enrollment in this study were retrospectively analyzed regarding their antibody status for measles, mumps, and rubella, with the aim to demonstrate the seropositivity rate after treatment in the authors group. Each patients serum samples were analyzed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) method to determine the antibody titers before and after immunization. Measles serology was available in 77 children; 45 (58) were seronegative. Initial ages of measle-seronegative patients were statistically lower than those of seropositive cases (median 3.29 versus 4.91 years, respectively). Mumps serology was available in 76 children; 36 (47) were seronegative. Mumps-seropositive cases tended to have more frequent previous history of infection than seronegative cases (55.0 versus 28.6, respectively, P =.05). Rubella serology was available in ...
Detection of specific viral antibody or nucleic acid produced by infection or immunization, using oral fluid samples, offers increased potential for wider population uptake compared to blood sampling. This methodology is well established for the control of HIV and measles infections, but can also be applied to the control of other vaccine preventable infections, and this review describes the application of oral fluid assays in support of mumps, rubella and varicella national immunization programs. In England and Wales individuals with suspected mumps or rubella, based on clinical presentation, can have an oral fluid swab sample taken for case confirmation. Universal varicella immunization of children has led to a drastic reduction of chickenpox in those countries where it is used; however, in England and Wales such a policy has not been instigated. Consequently, in England and Wales most children have had chickenpox by age 10 years; however, small, but significant, numbers of adults remain susceptible.

Influenza A virus subtype H7N9 is a novel avian influenza virus first reported to have infected humans in 2013 in China.[32] Most of the reported cases of human infection have resulted in severe respiratory illness.[33] In the month following the report of the first case, more than 100 people had been infected, an unusually high rate for a new infection; a fifth of those patients had died, a fifth had recovered, and the rest remained critically ill.[34] The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified H7N9 as "...an unusually dangerous virus for humans."[35] As of June 30, 133 cases have been reported, resulting in the deaths of 43. Research regarding background and transmission is ongoing.[36] It has been established that many of the human cases of H7N9 appear to have a link to live bird markets.[37] As of July 2013, there had been no evidence of sustained human-to-human transmission, however a study group headed by one of the world's leading experts on avian flu reported that several ...

Cholera is caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholerae that when ingested can cause diarrhea and vomiting within several hours to 2-3 days. Without proper treatment including oral rehydration, cholera can be fatal. The suspected source of Vibrio cholerae in Haiti was the Artibonite River, from which most of the affected people had consumed the water.[17] Each year, tens of thousands of Haitians bathe, wash their clothes and dishes, obtain drinking water, and recreate in this river, therefore resulting in high rates of exposure to Vibrio cholerae.[18] The cholera outbreak began ten months after the January 2010 earthquake, leading some observers to wrongly suspect it was a result of the natural disaster.[19][20] However, Haitians grew immediately suspicious of a UN peacekeeper base, home to Nepalese peacekeepers, positioned on a tributary of the Artibonite River.[21] Neighboring farmers reported an undeniable stench of human feces coming from the base, to the extent that local Haitians began getting ...

The cold chain is used in the supply of vaccines to distant clinics in hot climates served by poorly developed transport networks. Disruption of a cold chain due to war may produce consequences similar to the smallpox outbreaks in the Philippines during the Spanish-American War, during which the distributed vaccines were inert due to lack of temperature control in transport.[12] For vaccinations in particular, there are different types of cold chains. There is an ultralow, or deep freeze, cold chain for vaccines that require -70 degrees C. The Ebola and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines require this level, as do some animal vaccinations, such as those for chickens. Next the frozen chain requires -20 degrees C. Varicella and zoster vaccinations require this level. Then the refrigerated chain, which requires temperatures between two and eight degrees C. Most flu vaccinations only require refrigeration.[13] In 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccines being developed may need ultracold storage ...
