An immunoassay utilizing an antibody labeled with an enzyme marker such as horseradish peroxidase. While either the enzyme or the antibody is bound to an immunosorbent substrate, they both retain their biologic activity; the change in enzyme activity as a result of the enzyme-antibody-antigen reaction is proportional to the concentration of the antigen and can be measured spectrophotometrically or with the naked eye. Many variations of the method have been developed.

Substances that augment, stimulate, activate, potentiate, or modulate the immune response at either the cellular or humoral level. The classical agents (Freund's adjuvant, BCG, Corynebacterium parvum, et al.) contain bacterial antigens. Some are endogenous (e.g., histamine, interferon, transfer factor, tuftsin, interleukin-1). Their mode of action is either non-specific, resulting in increased immune responsiveness to a wide variety of antigens, or antigen-specific, i.e., affecting a restricted type of immune response to a narrow group of antigens. The therapeutic efficacy of many biological response modifiers is related to their antigen-specific immunoadjuvanticity.
An acute infectious disease of humans, particularly children, caused by any of three serotypes of human poliovirus (POLIOVIRUS). Usually the infection is limited to the gastrointestinal tract and nasopharynx, and is often asymptomatic. The central nervous system, primarily the spinal cord, may be affected, leading to rapidly progressive paralysis, coarse FASCICULATION and hyporeflexia. Motor neurons are primarily affected. Encephalitis may also occur. The virus replicates in the nervous system, and may cause significant neuronal loss, most notably in the spinal cord. A rare related condition, nonpoliovirus poliomyelitis, may result from infections with nonpoliovirus enteroviruses. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp764-5)

  • Offering mid-term market certainty: by extending the deal period - to five years in the case of the rotavirus vaccines deal - GAVI provides manufacturers with increased visibility, another incentive to commit to lower prices in return for more predictability of demand. (
  • Offering a long-term view of the market: by sending signals of a viable market to future manufacturers, GAVI aims at enlarging the vaccine supplier base and encouraging developing country manufacturers to join the market. (
  • Moving forward, GAVI will continue its proactive efforts to shape the vaccine market, and will seek to apply innovative measures specifically tailored to each vaccine. (
  • Preparatory work done included: Introduction and acceptance of the PAED agenda in ICC, new vaccines proposal to GAVI, resource mobilisation, Effective Vaccine Management implementation, national cold chain scale-up strategy, vaccine orientation and adapted data collection tools, health worker training, step-wise vaccine introduction to Lusaka province districts and finally national roll-out of the rotavirus vaccine immunisation. (
  • A 2019 Cochrane review concluded that RV1, RV5, and Rotavac vaccines are safe and are effective at preventing diarrhea. (
  • Forty-one countries worldwide include rotavirus vaccine in their NIPs, but "only two countries in Asia - Philippines and Thailand - are vaccinating (or are about to) children against rotavirus," according to IRIN. (
  • MSF teams often treat and vaccinate children against rotavirus. (
  • To examine reductions in diarrhea-associated health care utilization after rotavirus vaccine implementation and to assess direct and indirect effectiveness of vaccination. (
  • Implementation of rotavirus vaccines has substantially reduced diarrhea health care utilization in US children. (
  • The authors found no increased risk of narcolepsy in children or adults in Argentina, Canada, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan and the Netherlands following implementation of squalene-adjuvanted (AS03, MF59) influenza H1N1 vaccines in those countries. (
  • Locate current immunization resources to increase knowledge of team's role in program implementation and improve team performance. (
  • Since the pediatric introduction of 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV7) in 2000, incidence of IPD among adults has declined. (
  • Understanding the genetic diversity and conserved antigenic regions of circulating strains are therefore essential to assess the potential efficacy of rotavirus vaccines. (
  • It gained attention due to an unexpected association with the first rotavirus vaccine, RotaShield, which was subsequently withdrawn from the market. (
  • In 2011, Ontario became one of the first Canadian provinces to implement a universal, publicly funded rotavirus immunization program for babies at 2 and 4 months of age. (
  • In contrast to the United States, Australia and several other western countries, neither rotavirus vaccine is offered in a publicly funded program in Canada. (
  • Ontario is further protecting the health of its population by enhancing its publicly funded immunization program, while saving families more money. (
  • Ten of Canada's 13 provinces and territories now have publicly funded rotavirus vaccine programs. (
  • This decision was made based on the high incidence of rotavirus, the most common cause of severe diarrhea in children worldwide. (
  • From these data, we estimated the annual number of cases of diarrhea and of rotavirus-related diarrhea in Honduras, the cumulative incidence of diarrhea and of rotavirus-related diarrhea for a child from birth to age 5 years, and the number of fatalities due to RV among children hospitalized for diarrhea. (
  • Vaccines and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome SIDS The incidence of Sudden Infant Death syndrome SIDS has grown from .55 per 1000 live births in 1953 to 12.8 per 1000 in 1992 in Olmstead County, Minnesota. (
  • The first of the new studies focuses on rotavirus, which causes severe diarrhea and dehydration. (
  • expenditures for vaccines and routine immunization is improving, but not all countries are reporting adequately. (
  • Government spending on immunization program sustainability to be perceived within average for routine immunization per live birth has now a broader and more comprehensive context. (
  • Safety of Vaccines Used for Routine Immunization in the United States. (
  • For Rotavirus, identify those for whom routine immunization is recommended. (
