Interrupting the transmission of respiratory tract infections: theory and practice. (1/1781)

Interruption of transmission has always been one of the most attractive approaches for infection control. The technologies available were severely limited before the development of appropriate vaccines. Mathematically, the proportion of those who need to be immune to interrupt transmission can be derived from the Ro, which represents the number of new cases infected by a single case when all contacts are susceptible. Purely respiratory infections have critical characteristics affecting transmission that are different from key childhood vaccine-preventable diseases spread by the respiratory route. They include frequent reinfections and antigenic changes of the agents. Pragmatic approaches to understanding their potential effect can be found in experimental and programmatic use of vaccines such as those for Haemophilus influenzae type b and influenza virus infections. Results of these experiences can in turn strengthen the development of transmission theory.  (+info)

Home delivery of heat-stable vaccines in Indonesia: outreach immunization with a prefilled, single-use injection device. (2/1781)

Extending immunization coverage to underserved populations will require innovative immunization strategies. This study evaluated one such strategy: the use of a prefilled, single-use injection device for outreach immunization by village midwives. The device, UniJect, is designed to prevent refilling or reuse. Stored at ambient temperatures for up to 1 month in midwives' homes, vaccine-filled UniJect devices were immediately available for outreach. Between July 1995 and April 1996, 110 midwives on the Indonesia islands of Lombok and Bali visited the homes of newborn infants to deliver hepatitis B vaccine to the infants and tetanus toxoid to their mothers. Observations and interviews showed that the midwives used the device properly and safely to administer approximately 10,000 sterile injections in home settings. There were no problems with excessive heat exposure during the storage or delivery of vaccine. Injection recipients and midwives expressed a strong preference for the UniJect device over a standard syringe. Use of the prefilled device outside the cold chain simplified the logistics and facilitated the speed and efficiency of home visits, while the single-dose format minimized vaccine wastage.  (+info)

A contraceptive peptide vaccine targeting sulfated glycoprotein ZP2 of the mouse zona pellucida. (3/1781)

In this study, we have mapped and characterized a B cell epitope of sulfated glycoprotein ZP2 (ZP2) as a step toward the development of a multi-epitope zona pellucida (ZP) vaccine. Recombinant polypeptides expressed by random deoxyribonuclease-digested fragments of ZP2 cDNA were screened for binding to IE-3, a monoclonal antibody to murine ZP2. Positive clones contained cDNA inserts encoding polypeptide corresponding to ZP2(103-134). When normal or ovariectomized female mice were immunized with three overlapping peptides that span this region of ZP2 (101-120, 111-130, 121-140), only ZP2(121-140) elicited IgG antibodies that reacted with mouse ovarian ZP, indicative of the presence of native B epitope and helper T cell epitope in ZP2(121-140). To more finely map the ZP2 B cell epitope, a random peptide display library was screened with the IE-3 antibody, and a consensus tetramer sequence VxYK that matched the ZP2(123-126) sequence VRYK was located. Competitive immunofluorescence analysis with single alanine-substituted VxYK peptides ranked the relative contribution of the three critical B cell epitope residues as Y > V > K. A chimeric peptide was constructed that contained the YRYK motif of ZP2 and a bovine RNase T cell epitope. Although (C57BL/6xA/J) F1 (B6AF1) female mice immunized with the chimeric peptide developed ZP antibody response, this peptide elicited antibody only in mice of the histocompatibility complex (MHC) H-2(k or b) haplotype. In contrast, ZP2(121-140) peptide elicited antibody in inbred mice with three additional mouse MHC haplotypes. Moreover, although ZP2(121-140) contained a T cell epitope, no oophoritis was observed after immunization of B6AF1 mice with ZP2(121-140) in complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA). In a preliminary trial, female B6AF1 mice immunized with ZP2(121-140) in CFA had reduced litter sizes as compared with mice injected with CFA alone.  (+info)

Molecular characterization of a Haemaphysalis longicornis tick salivary gland-associated 29-kilodalton protein and its effect as a vaccine against tick infestation in rabbits. (4/1781)

The use of tick vaccines in mammalian hosts has been shown to be the most promising alternative tick control method to current use of acaricides, which suffers from a number of limitations. However, the success of this method is dependent on the identification, cloning, and in vitro expression of tick molecules involved in the mediation of key physiological roles with respect to the biological success of a tick as a vector and pest. We have sequenced and characterized a Haemaphysalis longicornis tick salivary gland-associated cDNA coding for a 29-kDa extracellular matrix-like protein. This protein is expressed in both unfed and fed immature and mature H. longicornis ticks. The predicted amino acid sequence of p29 shows high homology to sequences of some known extracellular matrix like-proteins with the structural conservation similar to all known collagen proteins. Immunization with the recombinant p29 conferred a significant protective immunity in rabbits, resulting in reduced engorgement weight for adult ticks and up to 40 and 56% mortality in larvae and nymphs that fed on the immunized rabbits. We speculate that this protein is associated with formation of tick cement, a chemical compound that enables the tick to remain attached to the host, and suggest a role for p29 as a candidate tick vaccine molecule for the control of ticks. We have discussed our findings with respect to the search of tick molecules for vaccine candidates.  (+info)

Impact of vaccines universally recommended for children--United States, 1990-1998. (5/1781)

At the beginning of the 20th century, infectious diseases were widely prevalent in the United States and exacted an enormous toll on the population. For example, in 1900, 21,064 smallpox cases were reported, and 894 patients died. In 1920, 469,924 measles cases were reported, and 7575 patients died; 147,991 diphtheria cases were reported, and 13,170 patients died. In 1922, 107,473 pertussis cases were reported, and 5099 patients died.  (+info)

Interleukin-12 as an adjuvant for an antischistosome vaccine consisting of adult worm antigens: protection of rats from cercarial challenge. (6/1781)

Our group previously demonstrated that a detergent extract (fraction S3) prepared from immature (4-week) Schistosoma mansoni parasites can induce partial, serum-transferable immunity to challenge infection in rats when administered as an alum precipitate. In the present study, we examined whether S3 prepared from adult (7-week) worms could similarly induce protection and whether immunity could be positively influenced by treatment with interleukin-12 (IL-12). IL-12 coadministered to Fischer rats and C57BL/6 mice at the time of S3 vaccination altered the prechallenge kinetics of S3-specific antibody titers in both species, ultimately leading to a stable enhancement of titers (relative to those in animals vaccinated without IL-12) in mice but not rats. Immunoblot analysis of prechallenge immune sera demonstrated that IL-12 treatment was associated with changes in the S3 antigen recognition profile in each species. Isotyping of specific antibodies in S3- plus IL-12-vaccinated mice prior to challenge infection revealed a moderate elevation in immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) responses, strongly enhanced IgG2a and IgG2b responses, as well as diminished total serum IgE responses compared to those in mice given S3 only. In vaccinated rats, IL-12 profoundly suppressed specific IgG1 and enhanced IgG2b responses but did not affect IgG2a responses. S3- plus IL-12-vaccinated rats also produced less total IgE upon challenge infection. Enumeration of worm burdens revealed that vaccination with S3 plus IL-12 conferred 50% protection from cercarial challenge to rats, whereas rats given S3 only were not protected; mice were not protected by S3 vaccination regardless of IL-12 coadministration. The protection observed in S3- plus IL-12-vaccinated rats could not be transferred with serum, suggesting participation of an activated cellular component in the expression of immunity.  (+info)

Single-dose mucosal immunization with biodegradable microparticles containing a Schistosoma mansoni antigen. (7/1781)

The purpose of this work was to assess the immunogenicity of a single nasal or oral administration of recombinant 28-kDa glutathione S-transferase of Schistosoma mansoni (rSm28GST) entrapped by poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLG)- or polycaprolactone (PCL)-biodegradable microparticles. Whatever the polymer and the route of administration used, the equivalent of 100 microg of entrapped rSm28GST induced a long-lasting and stable antigen-specific serum antibody response, with a peak at 9 to 10 weeks following immunization. Isotype profiles were comparable, with immunoglobulin G1 being the predominant isotype produced. The abilities of specific antisera to neutralize the rSm28GST enzymatic activity have been used as criteria of immune response quality. Pooled 10-week sera from mice receiving PLG microparticles by the nasal or oral route neutralized the rSm28GST enzymatic activity, whereas sera of mice receiving either PCL microparticles, free rSm28GST, or empty microparticles inefficiently neutralized this enzymatic activity. Finally, this study shows that a single administration of these microparticles could provide distinct and timely release pulses of microencapsulated antigen, which might greatly facilitate future vaccine development.  (+info)

Heat shock protein-based therapeutic strategies against human immunodeficiency virus type 1 infection. (8/1781)

Heat shock proteins (hsps) and cyclophilins (CypA) are intracellular chaperone molecules that facilitate protein folding and assembly. These proteins are selectively expressed in cells following exposure to a range of stress stimuli, including viral infection. Hsp species are highly immunogenic, eliciting humoral, cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL), and natural killer (NK) cell responses against viruses, tumours, and infectious diseases. This review discusses the roles of stress proteins in immunity and viral life cycles, vis-a-vis the development of Hsp-based therapeutic strategies against human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1) infection. Cumulative findings are cited implicating the requirement of CypA in HIV-1 replication and formation of infectious virions. Studies by our group show the upregulated expression of hsp27 and hsp70 during single-cycle HIV infections. These species redistribute to the cell surface following HIV-infection and heat stress, serving as targets for NK and antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity. Co-immunoprecipitation and Western blot studies show that hsp27, hsp70, and hsp78 complex with HIV-1 viral proteins intracellularly. Hsp70, hsp56, and CypA are assembled into HIV-1 virions. The ability of hsps to interact with HIV-1 viral proteins, combined with their inherent adjuvant and immunogenic properties, indicates that hsps may serve as vehicles for antigen delivery and the design of vaccines against acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.  (+info)

The VSD has conducted important vaccine-safety research since its inception in 1990, and since 2001 it has made changes that have enhanced its ability to answer urgent questions about vaccine safety and other immunization-related issues and to inform US vaccination policy.. The ability of the VSD to adapt to a changing environment is exemplified by the development of the DDM, the creation of DDFs, and the implementation of RCA projects. The DDM, a system for securely and quickly transferring data within the VSD, was developed in response to heightened confidentiality concerns. The DDM enabled the development of the DDFs. Together, the DDM and DDFs enabled the implementation of RCA, which is allowing researchers to monitor events in near real-time after the introduction of new vaccines and new vaccine recommendations. The VSD continues to refine previously used methodologies and develop new methodologies, such as the maximized sequential probability ratio test (maxSPRT), which is applicable to ...
In Canada, monitoring of vaccine adverse events is done via two systems. One, named Immunization Monitoring Program ACTive (IMPACT) is administered by the Canadian Paediatric Society with funding from the Immunization and Respiratory Infections Division of the Public Health Agency of Canada. According to the Societys website, IMPACT is a paediatric hospital-based national active surveillance network for adverse events following immunization, vaccine failures and selected infectious diseases in children that are, or are soon to be, vaccine preventable. Notice the conflicting agenda: monitoring disease to enable vaccine promotion and, at the same time, monitoring vaccine adverse events.. The second part of vaccine monitoring is performed by the Canadian Adverse Event Following Immunization Surveillance System (CAEFISS) which, up to May, 2005, was called The Vaccine Associated Adverse Events Surveillance System. The CAEFISS web page explains, This new name is in harmony with international ...

On the basis of computerized International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision codes, 5 apparent cases of GBS generated a signal after vaccination with MCV4. Each of the GBS cases had been reviewed after its appearance, and none represented a true instance of new onset of GBS symptoms during the observation window of days 1 through 42. Two were instances of follow-up for preexisting GBS; 1 had not been diagnosed with GBS but rather with a different neurologic syndrome that did not meet our case definition; 1 was an instance of rule-out of a differential diagnosis of GBS; and 1 had symptom onset on day 0 and, thus, was not considered plausibly related to vaccination.. In summary, the reasons for the 10 signals fell into 1 of 7 categories: (1) a confirmed vaccine-safety problem (MMRV-seizure); (2) temporal changes in incidence or coding (possibly the second RotaTeq gastrointestinal bleeding signal); (3) other confounding (by age: the first RotaTeq-gastrointestinal bleeding signal); (4) ...
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) licensed the first 2009 influenza A (H1N1) monovalent vaccines (H1N1 vaccines) on September 15, 2009 (1). The H1N1 vaccines are available as a live, attenuated monovalent vaccine (LAMV) for intranasal administration and as monovalent, inactivated, split-virus or subunit vaccines for injection (MIV). The licensure and manufacturing processes for the monovalent H1N1 vaccines were the same as those used for seasonal trivalent inactivated (TIV) or trivalent live, attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV); none of these vaccines contains an adjuvant (1). Vaccine safety monitoring is an important component of all vaccination programs. To assess the safety profile of H1N1 vaccines in the United States, CDC reviewed vaccine safety results for the H1N1 vaccines from 3,783 reports received through the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and electronic data from 438,376 persons vaccinated in managed-care organizations in the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD), ...

For 30 years, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) broke the law regarding vaccine safety, and no one noticed or cared.. Then two men came along and discovered the scandal: Robert F Kennedy, Jr. (twitter), head of the World Mercury Project, and Del Bigtree (twitter 1, twitter 2, FB, web), the producer of the film Vaxxed. They filed papers in court, and they won their case.. Here is the issue in a nutshell: In 1986, a law, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, was passed. It insanely excused vaccine makers from legal liability stemming from unsafe vaccines and the injuries they cause. Buried in the law was a provision ordering the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to update Congress, every two years, on its efforts to improve vaccine safety.. Kennedy and Bigtree thought it would be very interesting to read these HHS reports-all 16 of them. So ...
Its a great Indian success story, said Dr. Jacob John, a former virologist of the Christian Medical College (CMC), Vellore. He was referring to MenAfriVac, a meningitis A vaccine manufactured by the Pune-based Serum Institute of India. The vaccine passed the litmus test during a large-scale vaccine campaign in Banikoara district in the Republic of Benin, West Africa.. In the first-ever use in a developing country, the vaccine remained stable outside the cold chain at temperatures not exceeding 40 degree C for not more than four days. The vaccine should normally be kept in a cold chain at 2-8 degree C. The results of the vaccination programme funded by GAVI and WHO/PATH (which also provided training, supervision, evaluation) were published recently in the Vaccine journal..

A vaccine-preventable disease is an infectious disease for which an effective preventive vaccine exists. If a person acquires a vaccine-preventable disease and dies from it, the death is considered a vaccine-preventable death. The most common and serious vaccine-preventable diseases tracked by the World Health Organization (WHO) are: diphtheria, Haemophilus influenzae serotype b infection, hepatitis B, measles, meningitis, mumps, pertussis, poliomyelitis, rubella, tetanus, tuberculosis, and yellow fever. The WHO reports licensed vaccines being available to prevent, or contribute to the prevention and control of, 25 vaccine-preventable infections. In 2012, the World Health Organization estimated that vaccination prevents 2.5 million deaths each year. If there is 100% immunization, and 100% efficacy of the vaccines, one out of seven deaths among young children could be prevented, mostly in developing countries, making this an important global health issue. Four diseases were responsible for 98% of ...

Childhood vaccines protect children from a variety of serious or potentially fatal diseases, including diphtheria, measles, polio and whooping cough (pertussis). If these diseases seem uncommon - or even unheard of - its usually because these vaccines are doing their job.. Still, you might wonder about the benefits and risks of childhood vaccines. Here are straight answers to common questions about childhood vaccines.. A natural infection might provide better immunity than vaccination - but there are serious risks. For example, a natural chickenpox (varicella) infection could lead to pneumonia. A natural polio infection could cause permanent paralysis. A natural mumps infection could lead to deafness. A natural Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) infection could result in permanent brain damage. Vaccination can help prevent these diseases and their potentially serious complications.. Vaccines do not cause autism. Despite much controversy on the topic, researchers havent found a connection ...
Given the absence of a framework to set a national vaccine-safety research agenda, the National Vaccine Plan should call for expanded funding for safety research and include establishing a permanent group to advise the government on safety issues, the report says. Little vaccine research supported by the National Institutes of Health appears to be geared toward safety, the committee noted. Moreover, as the number and kinds of vaccines have increased, funding to monitor safety has not. The monitoring system has successfully caught problems such as a rare but severe intestinal injury linked to a discontinued rotavirus vaccine, but the Immunization Safety Office within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention needs more resources to do its work. A new vaccine safety advisory group could guide efforts to address potential safety concerns and the development of a research agenda with clear priorities ...
And we are told by the CDC that all the science has shown no connection between vaccines and ASD. But what did they actually look at? Did they do actual physiological studies on and as to the effect of vaccines and multiple vaccines on actual human being, and/or lab animals? No, they did not. What did they do and have they done? They did only population studies on one single vaccine, (the MMR vaccine); and population studies on one single vaccine ingredient, (Thimerosal, aka ethyl mercury). No studies were done on any other vaccines, nor other vaccine ingredients, nor were any done on combined multiple and nor repeated vaccine doses. And they tell us that they have done and looked at all the vaccine safety science; and apparently all the science that they feel would and should ever being needed. The general population and even the medical profession has believed this to be sufficient. There has as well never been done any officially recognized small nor large scale epidemiological study done, ...

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), a non-profit vaccine safety group, recently conducted an independent review of the contents of childhood vaccines and found that many of them are tainted with ingredients that would shock most parents. According to the manufacturer-produced package inserts included with each vaccine batch, many vaccines are made with disturbing ingredients like aborted human fetal proteins, altered DNA material, and even genetically-modified (GM) human albumin.. This shocking information was compiled as part of an NVIC safety review on the childhood vaccination schedule, which has been called into question in recent years due to a steady increase in cases of autism and other forms of neurological and brain damage among vaccinated children. As it turns out, there are at least eight, and as many as 23, vaccines routinely administered to children that contain one or more of these questionable ingredients - and if the general public truly knew about this, there would ...

Our data demonstrate that a single dose of a DNA vaccine or a purified inactivated virus vaccine provides complete protection against the ZIKV challenge in mice, said senior author Dan H. Barouch, adding Importantly, we showed that vaccine-induced antibodies provided protection, similar to existing vaccines for other flaviviruses.. The researchers tested two vaccine candidates: a DNA vaccine developed in the Barouch laboratory at BIDMC, and a purified inactivated virus vaccine developed at WRAIR. The DNA vaccine used gene sequences from a ZIKV strain from Brazil to elicit immune responses.. Four weeks following vaccination, mice were exposed to the Brazilian strain of ZIKV, which had previously been shown to cause defects in fetal mice similar to those observed in ZIKV infected humans. All vaccinated mice were protected from ZIKV replication. Other mice were vaccinated and exposed to infection eight weeks later and were also protected from infection.. Barouch noted that the effectiveness of ...

In 2004, NIAID directed Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics (formerly Chiron Corporation) to produce 40,000 doses of an experimental H9N2 vaccine at its vaccine manufacturing facility in Siena, Italy. Some of the vaccines were formulated with Novartiss MF59 adjuvant.. Dr. Atmar and his colleagues tested the vaccines in volunteers aged 18 to 34 in this Phase I clinical trial. Phase I vaccine trials assess candidate vaccines safety and ability to stimulate an immune system response, and are not designed to determine whether the vaccine would prevent infection by naturally occurring virus. The researchers vaccinated 48 volunteers with non-adjuvanted H9N2 vaccine (made from inactivated virus) at one of four dosages - 3.75, 7.5, 15 or 30 micrograms. An additional 48 volunteers received MF59-adjuvanted vaccine at one of the same four dosages. Volunteers were vaccinated twice, with inoculations spaced 28 days apart. An avian flu vaccine, like the seasonal flu vaccine, should stimulate antibodies, which ...
In this report, the committee who was asked to review aspects of this program, recommends that two new oversight groups are needed to ensure that the policies and procedures of the Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD) and its data sharing program -- which is intended to give researchers access to patient data that will help them study vaccine safety issues -- are implemented as fairly and openly as possible.
Vaccines are an important part of your dogs health but knowing which vaccines your dog needs can be a little confusing. The best source of advice for what vaccines your dog needs is your veterinarian who knows your dogs unique health history. Things like dog breed, age, and the region in which you live will influence what vaccines your dog needs to stay healthy and prevent illness and disease. Vaccines should not be over-administered, though, because it increases the risk of adverse reactions in your dog. For this reason, it is important to educate yourself about what vaccines may be necessary for your dog so that you can make an informed decision about what vaccines your dog really needs. There are vaccines that are considered core vaccines - vaccines that are necessary for all dogs, and non-core vaccines - vaccines that should only be administered if your dog has increased risk of various disease/illness from a variety of factors. Below are general vaccine recommendations for dogs based ...
In an open letter to the head of the World Health Organization, Dr. Sing Hang Lee, MD, the director of the Milford Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory in Milford, Connecticut, claims members of the WHOs Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety (GACVS) deliberately manipulated scientific data relating to the safety of HPV vaccines Gardasil® and Cervarix®.. The letter states that the emails, obtained via a Freedom of Information request, clearly demonstrate members of the GAVCS, the CDC and the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare knew before the February 26, 2014 Tokyo public hearing that one of their own experts showed scientific evidence that HPV vaccination does increase cytokines, including tumor necrosis factor (TNF), particularly at the injection site compared to other vaccines. This increase can be attributed to HPV L1 gene DNA fragments, the viral DNA fragments, in the HPV vaccines that bind to aluminum adjuvants. This mechanism explains why serious adverse reactions occur ...
UK Government In Secret Payments For Childhood Vaccine Damage. London Evening Standard , March 16 2005. Secret payments to patients disabled by childhood vaccines are revealed today. New figures show the Government has paid out £3.5 million to families who claim their children fell sick after jabs. Over the years, up to 30,000 people have battled for compensation, with only a handful winning their cases.. The payouts - all made since 1997 - were revealed under the Freedom of Information Act. But ministers refuse to say which injections were involved - claiming such records are not kept. The money was paid under a little-known government scheme for patients who have suffered adverse effects from immunisations. Details of successful claims are never publicised - with ministers anxious not to encourage applications. Families must convince health chiefs that the injections their children were given as part of public health programmes were directly responsible for making them seriously ill. Payouts ...
The National Adverse Event Following Immunisation (AEFI) Committee has completed an in-depth case review of 498 serious and severe events, of which 26 cases have been reported to be potential thromboembolic (formation of a clot in a blood vessel that might also break loose and carried by the blood stream to plug another vessel) events following administration of Covishield vaccine with a reporting rate of 0.61 cases/ million doses.. There were no potential thromboembolic events reported following administration of Covaxin vaccine, the ministry said.. As alerts were raised in some countries on post-vaccination embolic and thrombotic events on March 11, particularly with AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine (which is sold in India by the Serum Institute as Covishield), a decision was taken to conduct an urgent in-depth analysis of the adverse events (AE) in India in the light of global concerns, the ministry said.. The death of Snehal Lunawat, a lecturer in Nasik who was administerd Covishield in ...
This may challenge the conventional wisdom, said senior author Dr. Ali Rowhani-Rahbar, assistant professor of epidemiology. Usually, we look to see if a drop in immunization results in an outbreak. But we were interested in looking at the relationship the other way around: Does an outbreak lead to increased immunization? We found that it did not in Washington state.. Dr. Rowhani-Rahbar said many factors affect parental decisions on whether to delay or refuse vaccines, including fears of adverse effects. But the added risk of adverse events following immunization is very small - roughly one in a few thousand for some of the most common events (e.g., febrile seizures following immunization with measles-containing vaccines), he said. Washington has one of the highest U.S. non-medical exemption rates in the country from required kindergarten vaccinations.. While overall immunization rates remained the same for the state, researchers found significant changes on the county level. Vaccination rates ...
Title:Vaccine Adjuvants: Key Tools for Innovative Vaccine Design. VOLUME: 13 ISSUE: 20. Author(s):Peggy Riese, Kai Schulze, Thomas Ebensen, Blair Prochnow and Carlos A. Guzmán. Affiliation:Department of Vaccinology and Applied Microbiology, Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research, Inhoffenstrasse 7 38124 Braunschweig, Germany.. Keywords:Adjuvants, adjuvant combinations, adjuvant licensing, delivery systems, limitations, regulatory aspects, vaccines, parenteral vaccination, mucosal vaccination.. Abstract:Vaccines represent the most efficient tool for preventing diseases caused by infectious pathogens. During the last century significant progress has been made in vaccine development, resulting in the eradication or control of several diseases. However, the emergence of new pathogens and the inadequate protection conferred by some existing vaccines render necessary new vaccination strategies. Newly arising immunization approaches, such as subunit vaccines and mucosal administration, make the use ...
Developing the vaccines was a worldwide collaboration. Billions of dollars were invested in multiple companies and vaccine platforms at once to increase the likelihood of having at least one vaccine, if not multiple vaccines, developed, evaluated and produced.. Both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines have undergone extensive study and review with tens of thousands of immunizations already accomplished and all data suggest that the vaccines are not only safe but highly effective. This process involves gathering data about the effectiveness and potential effects of the vaccines that are reviewed by multiple federal agencies responsible for public health and safety. The vaccines have also been tested among a broad range of ages, races, ethnicities, and people with pre-existing medical conditions. These safety approval boards include scientists and experts in infectious disease and vaccination that have no connection with the companies producing the vaccines. These individuals evaluate the ...
Vaccine research is a major focus of AutismDads time. Parents of vaccine-damaged children research testing, vaccine safety & vaccine info regularly.
The immune system recognizes vaccine agents as foreign, destroys them, and remembers them. When the virulent version of an agent comes along, the immune system is thus prepared to respond. This long term immunity relies heavily upon the generation of so called B cells, which will generate antibodies that will bind to pathogens and mark them for destruction. Specifically, almost all vaccine formulations induce two types of B-cells: memory B cells and antibody producing B-cells called plasma cells. Adjuvants, agents which modify the effect of other agents while having few, if any direct effects when given by themselves, are many times used to modify (in this case augment) the effects that a vaccine has on disease resistance. However, the reasons why certain vaccine adjuvants are more or less effective at inducing immune responses often remains unclear.. This article provides a very exciting new insight because it seems to change the traditional textbook paradigm on relationship between plasma ...
contributed by Mr. Jordan Mifsud teacher of Biology. Why get vaccinated against covid-19?. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine can help protect from the virus by creating an antibody response in your body without having to become sick with COVID-19. If you still get COVID-19 infection, the vaccine might keep you from becoming seriously ill. Getting vaccinated also helps protect people around you from COVID-19.. Are vaccines 100% effective against Covid-19?. No, but vaccines are more effective than all other preventative measures against infectious diseases. The Maltese authorities have authorised three vaccines against Covid-19; the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine and lately the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. Similarly to other vaccines, these vaccines have an efficacy rate between 95% and about 70%. For example, 95% of people who get the Pfizer vaccine are protected from becoming seriously ill with the virus.. Who should get vaccinated?.

Children can usually get vaccinated if they have a mild common illness like a cold, ear infection, or diarrhea. Mild common illnesses do not interference with the immune response to vaccines and do not increase the risk of adverse events following immunization. Children taking antibiotics can also receive vaccines as antibiotics do not interfere with the immune response to the vaccine. If yo.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Vaccines are not just for infants. As kids get older, protection provided by some childhood vaccines can begin to wear off. Kids can also develop risks for more diseases as they enter their pre-teen years. Help your child transition into adolescence in a healthy way by staying up-to-date on pre-teen vaccines. Which Vaccines Do Pre-teens Need? Doctors recommend that all 11 and 12 year olds get the Tdap and meningococcal vaccines; 11- and 12-year-old girls should also get the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine.. Tdap vaccine This vaccine prevents pertussis, or whooping cough, which causes severe coughing fits. The coughing can cause pre-teens and teens to miss weeks of school, sports, and social activities. Parents may also have to miss work in order to take care of a sick child. Whooping cough is very contagious. It can be passed on to infants, who can die from it. Meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV4) This vaccine protects against meningitis and ...

What are Adverse Events Following Immunization?. Any medical event occurring after immunisation can be classified as an adverse event following immunisation (AEFI) whether the event has any causal relationship to getting the immunisation or not. Adverse events/responses following immunisation can range from mild to severe and from common to very rare. They may occur as a result of the immunisation, a causal relationship between the event and immunisation, or occur after the immunisation by chance, a coincidental relationship between the event and immunisation.. *Please use the forms below to report an adverse event following immunization with any vaccine, including SARS-CoV-2 vaccines. ...
To evaluate the operation status of the adverse events following immunization(AEFI) surveillance system in Jiangsu Province in 2008.The description epidemiological methods were used in this study.6197 AEFI cases reported in 2008 were collected.The cases reaction were classified into vaccine reaction,its incidente is 98.97%,and coincidental,unknown and pending cases account for 0.95%,0.02% and 0.06%,respectively.Fever,absces in injection site and Dants scleroma are dominant clinical reaction of AEFI cases.The incidence rates of allergia rash and sterile abscess is rather higher than orthers.The operation status of AEFI Surveillance System is normal and the indicators are matched the requirements of MOH.Benefiting from the introduction of the standardized AEFI classification,case definition and direct network report,the data quality is being improved step by step.The safety of NIP vaccines and the quality of immunization services is satisfactory.
Objective: To assess the performance of SmartVax, a prototypic active monitoring system for adverse events following immunisation (AEFI) using short message service (SMS) text messages and clinical data extracted from commercially available medical practice management software. Design, setting and participants: Between 11 November 2011 and 10 June 2013, adult patients and parents of paediatric patients receiving routine vaccinations in general practice were sent an SMS by SmartVax enquiring if they had experienced any AEFI and requesting a reply by SMS. Attempts were made to telephone patients who did not reply by SMS. Main outcome measures: The proportion of patients sent an SMS who replied by SMS, and the proportion of respondents indicating possible AEFI. Results: Of 3281 vaccinated patients, 3226 (98.3%) had a mobile telephone number on record and were sent an SMS. Of 2342 patients (72.6%; 95% CI, 70.0%-75.1%) who responded by SMS, 264 (11.3%; 95 CI, 9.9%-12.7%) reported possible AEFI. The ...
The adverse events following immunisation surveillance aims to monitor vaccine and immunisation program safety and to detect population-specific, rare, late-onset or unexpected adverse events that may not be detected in pre-licensure vaccine trials. This report provides an update on date for 1 January to 30 June 2011.

Vaccines have been one of the most successful public health interventions to date with most vaccine-preventable diseases having declined in the United States by at least 95-99%. However, vaccines are pharmaceutical products that carry risks. They interact with the human immune systems and could permanently alter gene molecular structures. Under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, over $2 billion has been awarded to children and adults for whom the risks of vaccine injury were 100% [1]. Potential relationships between vaccines and particular vaccine adverse events (VAE) may exist, but not well studied yet. The U.S. FDA/CDC Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national vaccine safety surveillance program for post-vaccination adverse events (AE) that occur after the administration of vaccines licensed in the United States [2]. Currently the VAERS contains more than 200,000 reports in total. Patients or healthcare providers submit reports about cases of adverse events ...
This report published in Communicable Diseases Intelligence Volume 24, No 2, 17 February 2000 contains information on the the Measles Control Campaign, which was conducted in Australia from August to November 1998 and resulted in a total of 1.7 million school children being vaccinated.
While previous studies have validated vaccine hesitancy scales with uptake behavior at the individual level, the conditions under which aggregated survey data are useful are less clear. We show that vaccine public opinion data aggregated at the subnational level can serve as a valid indicator of aggregate vaccine behaviour. We use a public opinion survey (Eurobarometer EB 91.2) with data on vaccine hesitancy for the EU in 2019. We link this information to (subnational) regional immunization coverage rates for childhood vaccines - DTP3, MCV1, and MCV2 - obtained from the WHO for 2019. We conduct multilevel regression analyses with data for 177 regions in 20 countries. Given the variation in vaccine hesitancy and immunization rates between countries and within countries, we affirm the valuable role that surveys can play as a public health surveillance tool when it comes to vaccine behavior. We find statistically significantly lower regional vaccine immunization rates in regions where vaccine ...
GACVS considered recent data on the safety profile of live attenuated SA 14-14-2 JE vaccine, provided in a number of expert presentations to the Committee. Live attenuated SA 14-14-2 JE vaccine constitutes more than 50% of the global production of all JE vaccines. The anticipated global demand for JE vaccine in 2012 is expected to exceed the present requirement twofold. Even though several new vaccine candidates are in development, their production and distribution remain uncertain for the time being. The current production of live attenuated SA 14-14-2 vaccine exceeds 50 million doses annually, most of which are used in China. Neuroattenuation of the virulent JE SA 14-14-2 strain is reported to be based on 57 nucleotide changes and 24 amino acid substitutions, suggesting that reversion to neurovirulence of the vaccine strain would be highly unlikely. Vaccine production is in accordance with WHO technical specifications, including detailed screening for adventitious viruses. Data reported from ...
If you are searching for the term Vaccine Injury Table, you may be looking for information about the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The NVICP is a federal program which compensates persons who experience a Vaccine Injury, which occurs when a child or adult experiences certain adverse reactions after receiving one of several vaccinations covered under the NVICP.. Claims for compensation to the NVICP are made to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims located in Washington, D.C., by filing a petition. Most petitioners are represented by lawyers. An attorney representing a petitioner must be admitted to practice in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. The Vaccine Injury Table refers to a chart listing the most common vaccines or immunizations administered, such as DTaP vaccine, MMR vaccine, varicella (chicken pox) vaccine, and polio vaccine for children, the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine (Gardasil) for adolescents and young adults, tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis booster ...
Oduwoles presentation was entitled Investigating vaccine hesitancy and validating a measuring tool in the Western Cape Province. Her study looks at understanding some of the reasons for vaccine hesitancy in the Western Cape and aims to answer three questions: (1) What are the major causes and drivers of vaccine hesitancy in the province? (2) What measuring tools exist? And (3) are the survey tools valid in the context and setting.. Oduwole pointed out that there are currently vaccines available for 25 vaccine-preventable diseases, of which 13 are routinely administered in South Africa in accordance with the Expanded Programme on Immunisation. Vaccination progress in many countries have stalled or regressed in recent years due to a number of reasons. These include issues to do with resource constraints such as missed opportunities for vaccination; vaccine stock-outs and programme and infrastructural challenges; and issues to do with personal choice and vaccine hesitancy.. The Western Cape is ...
Yes, allergic reactions can happen, but they occur very rarely with the flu vaccines available in the United States today. Occasional cases of anaphylaxis, a severe life-threatening reaction that involves multiple organ systems and can progress rapidly, in egg-allergic persons have been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) after administration of flu vaccine. Flu vaccines contain various components that may cause allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis. In a Vaccine Safety Datalink study, there were 10 cases of anaphylaxis after more than 7.4 million doses of inactivated flu vaccine, trivalent (IIV3) given without other vaccines, (rate of 1.35 per one million doses). Most of these cases of anaphylaxis were not related to the egg protein present in the vaccine. CDC and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices continue to review available data regarding anaphylaxis cases following flu vaccines.. ...
All countries considered by the Review have a national passive AEFI surveillance system, but there are differences in the ways the systems are structured and administered. At the global level and in most countries, AEFI reporting is included in the general medicines adverse event reporting system. In the USA and in Canada, AEFIs are reported to a specific system for vaccines. The USA system is called the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). The database is held by the Department of Health and Human Services and jointly managed by two of the Departments agencies, the FDA and the CDC. In Canada, the system is called the Canadian Adverse Events Following Immunization Surveillance System (CAEFISS). It is currently administered by the Vaccine Safety Unit (VSU) of the Centre for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (CIPD) of the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). The Canadian system has a specific committee, the Advisory Committee on Causality Assessment (ACCA), with broad-based ...
While vaccines help prevent many diseases in the United States, we lack immunization protection against several serious illnesses, says a new report from the Institute of Medicine that identifies priority areas for updating the National Vaccine Plan. The revised plan should include a strategy to accelerate development of high-priority vaccines, said the committee that wrote the report. In addition, it should emphasize the importance of expanding funding for safety research and monitoring, and include the development of a national communications strategy to clarify the importance of vaccines and bolster public confidence in the immunization system.. The National Vaccine Plan aims to provide centralized coordination of the various components involved in protecting Americans from vaccine-preventable illnesses and vaccine-related adverse reactions. The immunization system engages many partners -- including multiple government agencies and departments, vaccine researchers, manufacturers, public ...
The writer has become embroiled in the controversy about whether or not it is wise to vaccinate.. I have been encountering cases of vaccine injury for over 40 years. In June it was a happy, healthy nearly 5-year-old whose parents were required to put her on a catch-up schedule, in order to get her into kindergarten. She wont be going to kinder. Shes in a wheel-chair, brain-damaged. Her life ruined. Then came a friends father who died after a flu vaccine, and last week a 4 year old boy, made autistic by a catch-up schedule.. In 1988, the US National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was created. It has paid out over US$3.5 billion to the vaccine-injured. The NVICP was set up to protect vaccine manufacturers from ruinous costs of litigation by vaccine-damaged people. It was deemed preferable to have unavoidably unsafe vaccines than no vaccines. Unfortunately the protection provided to vaccine manufacturers also reduced incentives to develop safer vaccines in USA.. Politicians and doctors ...

H 845.1 I61b 2011 c.2 Intervals between Live Vaccines and Other Rules All vaccines can be administered simultaneously (on the same day). 2 Live Vaccines Live vaccines can be given on the same day. If they are not given on the same day, they should be separated by a minimum 4-week interval, because the immune response to one of the vaccines might be impaired. If two live vaccines are not given on the same day and are given less than four weeks apart, the second vaccine should be repeated. Alternatively, the effectiveness of the second vaccine can be checked by serologic testing. H Dont do this less than 4 weeks at least 4 weeks This applies to MMR, varicella, zoster, yellow fever vaccines & LAIV; but, it does not apply to oral typhoid and rotavirus vaccines. Inactivated vaccines do not interfere with live vaccines and live vaccines do not interfere with inactivated vaccines. An inactivated vaccine can be administered either simultaneously or at any time before or after a different inactivated or ...
As I reported in my column, the one exception to this drumbeat of misleading and inaccurate coverage about vaccine safety is on the local level, where correspondent Michael Chen of ABC 10 News in San Diego, California noted a case of a boy who suffered serious injuries, including fever, seizures, nervous tics and autism, as a result of two vaccines. The mother, almost in tears as she described what happened to her son, was paid $55,000 in damages through the federal program. But the damage award didnt cover the autism diagnosis. She said she wished she had more thoroughly researched the safety of vaccines.. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program grew out of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. Fisher explains what happened: The companies threatened Congress that they were going to leave the people without any childhood vaccines if they did not get liability protection. The companies wanted this liability protection and it was mainly for losses at that time for DPT and ...
Surveillance and developments in 2016-2017 In 2016, about 760,000 children aged 0 to 19 years received a total of 2,140,000 vaccinations within the National Immunisation Programme (NIP). Participation in the NIP was high (more than 90% depending on the vaccine), but dropped by around 0.5% for newborns for the third consecutive year. The participation in vaccinations against human papillomavirus (HPV) declined from 61 to 53 per cent. The number of reports (1,483) of adverse events following immunisation (in total 3,665) in 2016 was comparable to the number of reports in 2015. NIP target diseases The number of reported cases of most NIP target diseases was again low. However, the number of cases of Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) disease in 2016 (n=44) was considerably higher than in the previous five years (22-34 cases), with the highest incidence occurring among children under five years of age. Pertussis incidence in 2016 fits within the usual fluctuations. However, six people died from ...
I never really questioned vaccine safety and I thought I understood the reasoning of why vaccines worked. I had been in a pre-med curriculum in my undergraduate study and my children were vaccinated in the 1980s when they were young. I was a practicing R.N. for many years and I received a number of vaccines during that time and I administered many. I was injured by the Hep B vaccine series in 1992-93, but no one was very interested in reporting or tracking that injury. I began studying vaccination in 2009 when I was out on a disability leave of absence.. There is an explosion of vaccine related injuries occurring across our country. There is something very, very wrong happening to our children; many are suffering from allergies, neurological and immune-system damage. In 1986 the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was passed where The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Board was formed by Congress at the bequest of the vaccine manufacturers because they were being inundated with lawsuits ...
Dr. James R. Shannon, former Director of the US National Institute of Health, has been widely quoted as saying: The only safe vaccine is one that is never used. But are adverse vaccine reactions really a big deal? Arent they just the fever and fatigue were warned about after yearly shots? Or is there more to learn?. And arent moderate and severe adverse reactions rare? Lets answer this question first.. Reactions are considered rare, in part, because reporting is rare. Unlike reporting for human vaccine reactions, required by the National Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, reporting is voluntary for reactions experienced by animals. Furthermore, there is no federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) for animals as there is for humans, nor is there a National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). That does not mean that adverse events arent a serious a problem for animals. In fact, because animals are given numerous vaccines repeatedly (and unnecessarily) throughout their ...

There is no magic bullet that has revolutionized vaccine supply chains over the last ten years. Instead, a range of technologies working in concert with one another have contributed to more effective and efficient supply chains. Developments in cold chain technology, data gathering and analytics, and even in transportation have all had significant impacts on the availability of vaccines. These technologies all must work in-sync with each other to provide both the infrastructure and information needed to ensure vaccines are available where and when they are needed and in the right condition. We must also ensure these technologies are appropriate and available at all levels of the supply chain. As a global community, we have greatly improved the systems, infrastructure and financing to ensure sufficient vaccines reach low-resource countries, but the real impact comes ...
Vaccines help make you immune to serious diseases without getting sick first. Without a vaccine, you must actually get a disease in order to become immune to the germ that causes it. Vaccines work best when they are given at certain ages. For example, children dont receive measles vaccine until they are at least one year old. If it is given earlier it might not work as well. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention publishes a schedule for childhood vaccines..

At the end of March 2010 an A/H1N1 vaccination campaign was conducted in Afghanistan using donated vaccines. However, no surveillance system for detection of adverse events following immunization was in place. We report a cross-sectional, descriptive survey in 4 provinces of Afghanistan to assess the rate of adverse events among health care staff immunized with A/H1N1 monovalent vaccine 4 weeks after vaccination. Using random sampling proportionate to size, 350 staff [‎mean age 36 years, range 16-65 years]‎ were surveyed using a questionnaire. The highest self-reported rates of adverse events were pain at the injection site [‎53%]‎, fever in the first 3 days after immunization [‎40%]‎, body pain [‎39%]‎, tiredness [‎33%]‎, swelling at the injection site [‎29%]‎ and redness at the injection site [‎28%]‎. More females than males suffered adverse reactions and the rates varied across different provinces, ranging from 79% in Balkh to 23% in ...
The history of immunisation can be traced through two major narratives. The first is a story of profound benefit to global health, the other a complex tale of risk and uncertainty versus safety and public confidence. These narratives are forever intertwined, not least because as successful immunisation programmes lead to progressive reductions in disease risk, so the prospect of adverse vaccine-related events becomes a dominant public concern.. Anaphylaxis has long been recognised as a rare but serious complication of vaccination, but despite millions of infants and children receiving vaccine doses every year, data describing the incidence of anaphylaxis as an adverse event following immunisation (AEFI) are surprisingly sparse. Erlewyn-Lajeunesse et als prospective survey of anaphylaxis as an AEFI, published in this issue, provides a valuable addition to the existing evidence concerning vaccination safety.1. Serious allergic reaction in childhood sits alongside meningitis in the public ...
VAERS was established after Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act in 1986 requiring providers and vaccine manufacturers to report possible adverse events that occur during or following the administration of vaccines licensed in the United States. VAERS receives approximately 30,000 reports a year (Shimabukuro TT et al. Vaccine. 2015;30:4398). About 85% of VAERS reports describe mild adverse events such as fever or local reactions. Which three of the following statements are true:. a) An adverse reaction is defined as any side effect, injury, toxicity or sensitivity reaction, or failure of pharmacologic action. b) An adverse reaction occurring after vaccine administration does not need to be reported if it is considered to be unrelated to the vaccine. c) Serious adverse events include death, life-threatening conditions, hospitalization, permanent disability, congenital anomaly or impairment of a body function. While these events may occur after vaccination, they rarely are ...
A definitive and readable reference guide to the world of vaccines!The Vaccine Book provides concrete information on the current and future world of vaccines. It reveals the scientific opportunities and potential impact of vaccines, including economic and ethical challenges, problems encountered when producing vaccines, how clinical vaccine trials are designed, and how to introduce vaccines into widespread use. Although vaccines are now available for many diseases, there are still challenges ahead for major diseases such as AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. The Vaccine Book is designed to increase the understanding of vaccines for students, researchers, public health officials, and all others working to address such challenges. Topics unique to this book:* Ethics * Economics * Diseases that could be prevented* Clinical trial designs* Ideas about the future of vaccines* Challenges facing research scientists in the vaccine area* Burden of vaccine-preventable illness and the impact of vaccines* Scientific
It sounds reasonable, it sounds nice. But dont hold your breath. The CDC is hardly issuing engraved invitations to come trawl its mainframes, despite a harshly written report earlier this year from the Institute of Medicine. The IOM complained of CDC foot dragging, and even insolence, on this matter, and suggested that vaccine officials at the health agency seek legal counsel. Why? Because the original datasets of children used by the government have, as they say, gone missing. (Actually, the official explanation was that they were not archived in a standard fashion.) The intentional loss or destruction of taxpayer funded data or datasets is a violation of the Federal Data Quality Act. It is a felony, and someone could go to jail for it ...
Vaccines have been one of the most successful public health interventions to date. The use of vaccination, however, sometimes comes with possible adverse events. The U.S. FDA/CDC Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) currently contains more than 200,000 reports for post-vaccination events that occur after the administration of vaccines licensed in the United States. Although the data from the VAERS has been applied to many public health and vaccine safety studies, each individual report does not necessarily indicate a casuality relationship between the vaccine and the reported symptoms. Further statistical analysis and summarization needs to be done before this data can be leveraged. This paper introduces our efforts on representing the vaccine-symptom correlations and their corresponding meta-information extracted from the VAERS database using Resource Description Framework (RDF). Numbers of occurrences of vaccine-symptom pairs reported to the VAERS were summarized with corresponding
Therapeutic vaccines function by triggering a body immune response against a disease. The global therapeutic vaccines market was valued at USD 292 million in 2011. The introduction of therapeutic vaccines has opened up new avenues in the field of chronic disease treatment and prophylactic immunization. Provenge was the first U.S. FDA approved immunotherapy drug to treat prostate cancer in men in 2010, which has encouraged rigorous research and development initiatives by pharmaceutical companies to develop novel vaccines for untapped disease segments. As a result of these initiatives, many more therapeutic vaccines are currently in the pipeline such as breast cancer vaccine, lung cancer vaccine; Alzheimers vaccine, malaria vaccine, and diabetes vaccine are expected to be introduced in the market during the period from 2012 to 2018. ...

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), is a national program managed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to monitor the safety of all vaccines licensed in the United States. VAERS collects and reviews reports of adverse events that occur after vaccination. An adverse event is any health problem or side effect that happens after a vaccination. VAERS cannot determine if a vaccine caused an adverse event, but can determine if further investigation is needed ...

  • To learn more about these diseases and the benefits and potential risks associated with the vaccines, read the Vaccine Information Statements (VIS) . (
  • But this is extremely risky because vaccine-preventable diseases like measles are still around. (
  • But it's clear that the risk of serious reactions to the MMR and other recommended vaccines is small compared with the health risks associated with the often-serious diseases they prevent. (
  • Immunizations have led to a significant decrease in rates of vaccine-preventable diseases and have made a significant impact on the health of children. (

  • In fact, a 2004 scientific review external icon by the IOM concluded that "the evidence favors rejection of a causal relationship between thimerosal-containing vaccines and autism. (
  • Hviid A, Stellfeld M, Wohlfahrt J, Melbye M. Association between thimerosal-containing vaccine and autism pdf icon [PDF - 5 pages] external icon . (
  • Is There a Connection Between Vaccines and Autism? (
  • Much of the blame lies with a study published in 1998 that suggested that the MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine , or infection with the naturally occurring measles virus itself, might cause autism. (
  • Since then, numerous scientific studies have shown that there is no link between vaccines - or any of their ingredients - and autism. (
  • 7 , 8 Physicians stated that the most common reasons parents refused vaccines were that they believed that vaccines are unnecessary (which showed an increase over the 7-year span) and that they had concerns about autism (which declined between survey years). (
  • Thimerosol-containing vaccines are associated with autism prevalence and measles-containing vaccines are associated with serious neurological disorders. (
  • Recent research showed that aluminum in vaccines was a likely culprit in the rise of autism , for example. (
  • Vaccine Researcher Joel Lord will also be discussing the Autism epidemic, synergistic toxicity, demyelination & blood-brain barrier threshold in babies. (
  • Some parents worried that thimerosal used in vaccines may lead to autism. (
  • Rates of autism have actually increased since thimerosal was removed from vaccines in 2001. (
  • In 1998, Dr Andrew Wakefield published a paper about 8 children who reportedly developed autism after receiving the MMR vaccine. (
  • Since then, scientific studies comparing thousands of children who received the vaccine with thousands of children who have not have been completed, and have not found a relationship between the vaccine and autism. (
  • During the past decade, with thimerosal removed from most childhood vaccines, the rate of autism has continued to rise. (
  • These studies do not show any link between MMR vaccine, thimerosal and autism. (
  • A lot of people have read about Dr. Andrew Wakefield , who was an author of a controversial paper in 1998 about the MMR vaccine and autism. (
  • Godlee, the journal's editor-in-chief, said the study shows that of the 12 cases Wakefield examined in his paper, five showed developmental problems before receiving the MMR vaccine and three never had autism. (
  • Then, a group of trial lawyers looking to sue pharmaceutical companies paid Dr. Wakefield handsomely to find a relationship between the MMR vaccine and Autism . (
  • The vaccine, Wakefield suggested, had damaged the intestine-in particular, the measles part had caused serious inflammation-allowing harmful proteins to leak from the gut into the bloodstream and from there to the brain, where they damaged neurons in a way that triggered autism. (
  • The MMR vaccine is the same on both sides of the Atlantic, so fears of childhood vaccines (of which U.S. health officials recommend 35 by age 6) started a backlash in the United States, too, fueled in no small part by the fact that the incidence of autism was rising for reasons scientists could not fully explain. (
  • Inevitable, because legitimate scientists publishing in respected journals produced evidence of a link between vaccines and autism, and because the press as well as politicians and even public-health officials stoked the mounting hysteria. (
  • Authorities recently conceded there was a connection between vaccines and autism in a case involving a young girl. (
  • WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A special court ruled Thursday that evidence presented in three cases by parents of children with autism did not prove a link between autism and certain early childhood vaccines. (
  • A special court denied Mike and Theresa Cedillo's claim that vaccines caused autism in their daughter, Michelle. (
  • The ruling came from a panel of 'special masters' who began hearing three test cases in 2007 involving children with autism -- a disorder that their parents contend was triggered by the vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella combined with vaccines containing thimerosal, a preservative containing mercury. (
  • Three families -- the Cedillos, the Hazelhursts and the Snyders -- sought compensation from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, but the panel ruled that they had not presented sufficient evidence to prove that the childhood vaccines caused autism in their children. (
  • have found no association between vaccines and autism. (
  • Hopefully, the determination by the Special Masters will help reassure parents that vaccines do not cause autism,' the statement said. (
  • and those who claim that MMR vaccines, without any link to thimerosal, can cause autism. (
  • The mistaken belief in a connection can be traced back to 1998, when a doctor in the U.K. published a now discredited study claiming the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine was linked to autism. (
  • Nor will the fact that concerns about autism being related to vaccines neither began nor ended with the 1998 Lancet paper. (
  • Studies both before that paper and after (including a study by the CDC , in which one of the scientists has accused the CDC of falsifying data so as to conceal a possible connection) have shown a possible link between vaccines (including the MMR vaccine) and autism . (
  • Indeed, one of the US government's own expert witnesses, Dr. Andrew Zimmerman has admitted that "…in a subset of children, vaccine induced fever and immune stimulation did cause regressive brain disease with features of autism spectrum disorder. (
  • So yes, it would be understandable to think that the near-unison recitation of these falsehoods about the lack of a vaccine-autism connection, and about the Wakefield study in particular, was the primary feature that these articles have in common - as indeed they do. (
  • Articles repeating the same assertions (rarely with any supporting evidence provided) that "vaccines are safe" and "vaccines do not cause autism", and speaking with qualified spokespeople only on the pro-vaccine side of the issue. (
  • MMR and Autism The British vaccine controversy focused on the combined vaccine against measles, mumps, and rubella and the allegation that it causes, triggers, or exacerbates symptoms associated with autism. (
  • As with thimerosal and autism in the United States, health officials in Britain quickly produced evidence that there was no causal link between the vaccine and autism, and they rigorously disputed any claim of a connection. (
  • For vaccine-anxious parents who found vindication in the claim that the vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella might cause autism, however, no amount of scientific refutation of the work was persuasive. (
  • In Britain, parents' anxieties about vaccines were piqued after Andrew Wakefield, a British academic gastroenterologist, suggested that the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) be split into three separate vaccines because the combined vaccine might cause gastrointestinal difficulties that could lead to neurological problems like autism. (
  • In February 1998 Wakefield, in collaboration with a dozen other colleagues, published a paper in the Lancet, Britain's premier medical journal, which 4 MMR and Autism 95 linked chronic intestinal disorders with autism and asserted that symptoms for both began shortly after patients received the combined measles-mumpsrubella vaccine. (
  • With this publication, the public controversy in Britain over an alleged link between the MMR vaccine and autism began. (
  • By 2002, the scientific and medical communities in Britain and the United States concluded that Wakefield's hypothesis was incorrect-in fact, there was no causal association between the MMR vaccine and autism. (
  • In the United States as in Britain, the weight of opinion within the medical and scientific communities has remained steadfastly opposed to Wakefield 's claims about the potential of vaccines, in particular the MMR vaccine, to cause autism. (
  • Forty years ago, children received 5 vaccines routinely (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio, and smallpox vaccines) and as many as 8 shots by 2 years of age. (
  • And earlier research suggests that Tdap, the adult vaccine against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough), can reduce the likelihood that an infant will catch whooping cough during the first two months of life by 78 percent. (
  • But it can be highly dangerous for infants, and babies don't start receiving the DTaP series-the childhood vaccine against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis-until they're 2 months old. (
  • Hannah Bruesewitz's case is heartbreaking: she suffered a seizure in April 1992, within a day of receiving the vaccine for diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus (DPT), and she had many more seizures in the following months. (
  • The Td preparation contains only 15 to 20 percent of the diphtheria toxoid present in the DPT vaccine and is more suitable for use in older children and adults. (
  • Since 2003, there have been nine CDC-funded or conducted studies pdf icon [PDF - 2 pages] that have found no link between thimerosal-containing vaccines and ASD, as well as no link between the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and ASD in children. (
  • However, you may end up receiving 2 doses, because the rubella component is in the combination vaccine with measles and mumps.For HCWs born before 1957, see the MMR ACIP vaccine recommendations . (
  • Older children , adolescents , and adults also need 1 or 2 doses of MMR vaccine if they are not already immune to measles, mumps, and rubella. (
  • Recommended age limitations are based on potential adverse events (yellow fever vaccine), lack of efficacy data or inadequate immune response (polysaccharide vaccines and influenza vaccine), maternal antibody interference and immaturity of the immune system (measles-mumps-rubella [MMR] vaccine), or lack of safety data. (
  • Difficulties in eliminating measles and controlling rubella and mumps in a 99% measles vaccine compliant population. (
  • A lot of parents hear different things about the MMR vaccine (that's measles, mumps, and rubella) or the flu or chicken pox or pertussis vaccine and wonder "How safe are vaccines? (
  • With flashbulbs popping, Wakefield stepped up to the bank of microphones: he and his colleagues, he said, had discovered a new syndrome that they believed was triggered by the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine. (
  • The MMR vaccine is a mix of three vaccines: attenuvax (measles), mumpsvax (mumps), and meruvax II (rubella). (
  • The three-in-one MMR vaccine protects against measles, mumps, and rubella. (
  • This CDC map shows the percentage of children enrolled in kindergarten who have been exempted from receiving one or more vaccines, and those states in which less than 90% of children have had two doses of measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine. (
  • We did not prove an association between measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine and the syndrome described. (
  • Get 1 dose of influenza vaccine annually. (
  • At the end of that same year, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) analysis 2 of flu vaccine effectiveness revealed that, between 2005 and 2015, the influenza vaccine was actually less than 50 percent effective more than half of the time. (
  • There are many other examples of the influenza vaccine not protecting people as promised. (
  • For example, influenza vaccine is prepared in multidose vials that contain thimerosal and is also available in single syringes without thimerosal. (
  • In a similar study of the viral influenza vaccine, caregivers and former caregivers both exhibited a weaker immune status than did the control group almost immediately after innoculation. (
  • The results showed that the total amount of antigen from vaccines received was the same between children with ASD and those that did not have ASD. (
  • Governments may wish to change the original product and/or presentation of a Gavi-supported vaccine to a different product with the same antigen. (
  • Cancer vaccines can be divided into six main categories: antigen/adjuvant vaccines, DNA vaccines, vector-based vaccines, tumor cell vaccines, dendritic cell vaccines and anti-idiotype vaccines. (
  • Glycoconjugated vaccines provide foreign peptide antigens within the vaccine that allows for recruitment of antigen-specific CD4 + T-helper cells producing a T-dependent, and thus more immunogenic, antibody response. (
  • More recent vaccine technologies include nucleic acid-based vaccines, which entail the use of DNA that encodes a vaccine antigen, and is subsequently taken up by host cells and processed similar to a natural infection, or a nonpathogenic viral "vector" is used to introduce the nucleic acid. (
  • Adjuvants help increase the body's immune response to the antigen in the vaccine. (
  • The authors examine the basic issues that affect all vaccines (such as immune adjuvants and prime-boost strategies), describe cutting-edge methods for antigen discovery, and review the preclinical development phases for each major vaccine strategy. (
  • RNA vaccines are composed of the nucleic acid RNA, which encode antigen genes of an infectious agent. (
  • Single antigen vaccines pose less risk to children younger than the recommended age of 15 months for the MMR. (
  • Effective cancer vaccines deliver concentrated antigen to both HLA class I and II molecules of DCs, promoting both CD4 and CD8 T cell responses. (
  • In many phase I/II studies, these vaccines have shown clinical benefit, in particular extended overall or disease-free survival, while objective durable regressions of the type associated with targeted or immunomodulatory mAb therapy ( 2 - 6 ) or chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) ( 7 - 10 ) or adoptive T cell ( 11 , 12 ) therapy were rarely seen. (
  • The specific type of therapeutic vaccines include antigen vaccines. (
  • In case of antigen vaccines, the body is introduced to a foreign agent to activate the immune system so that it recognizes the agent when later encountered. (
  • Viral vector vaccines use genetic material, which gives your cells instructions for making a protein of the germ. (
  • Earlier work had shown that a patient's stress levels can affect a viral vaccine's potency, but the new results show that the same holds true for bacterial vaccines, such as those that protect against pneumonia. (
  • This Review examines prophylactic HPV subunit vaccines based on the ability of the viral L1 capsid protein to form virus-like particles (VLPs) that induce high levels of neutralizing antibodies. (

  • Hysteria over childhood vaccinations built to such a crescendo that Wakefield's nuanced warning-that it was specifically the triple vaccine, not single-disease vaccines (even measles), that posed a threat-was drowned out. (
  • The MMR, which does not contain mercury, consists of live viruses that have been weakened (attenuated) so that the vaccine is still capable of inducing a productive immune response but does not cause the disease that the original or "wild-type" viruses can. (
  • If the virus escapes the initial antibody barrier and gets inside our cells, they become invisible to antibodies," says Alessandro Sette, a professor at the Center for Infectious Disease and Vaccine Research at the La Jolla Institute for Immunology. (
