Background: Immunization against diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis has been applied in Iran since 1950. WHO suggests periodical evaluation of effectiveness of the triple diphtheria-tetanus-whole cell pertussis (DTwP) vaccine, worldwide. Objectives: To determine the immunogenicity of locally manufactured DTwP vaccine administered to preschool children in a number of health centers of Tehran in 2006. Methods: In this prospective study, 350 children aged 4-6 years were injected with DTwP vaccine manu-factured by Razi Institute of Iran. Blood samples were collected before and 2-4 weeks after the vaccination. The immunogenicity of the vaccine was assayed by measurement of specific antibodies using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) technique. Results: Of the 337 children who were vaccinated, 99.4% and 100% had protective anti-diphtheria and anti-tetanus antibody titers, respectively. The vaccine response and seroconversion for pertussis was achieved in 70.3% of the subjects. The geometric mean titers
On February 12, 1985, the American Academy of Pediatrics hosted a meeting to discuss ways of dealing with the current shortage of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) vaccine. The meeting was attended by representatives of the American Medical Association; American Academy of Family Practice; the vaccine manufacturer; state, county, and city health officials; the U.S. Department of Defense; and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Available information indicates that, overall, state health departments have approximately 2.3 months supply of DTP vaccine on hand, but this vaccine is not uniformly distributed, with 18 states having supplies on hand of 1 month or less. Because of close inventory monitoring and prudent use of DTP reserves held by the manufacturer, vaccine has remained available in the public sector to date. A survey conducted by eight different state health departments of 583 physicians indicated approximately one-third had had difficulties in obtaining DTP vaccine, and ...

We conducted a prospective study to compare the development of fever (axillary T ≥ 37.9 °C) within 4 hours of vaccination, determine the proportion of children who develop high fever (T ≥ 39°C) and evaluate parental days missed from work due to their childrens vaccination with either the diphtheria-tetanus-whole cell pertussis (DTwP) or diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis (DTaP) vaccine. The results of this study can help physicians and parents decide whether to have their child vaccinated with the DTwP or more expensive DTaP vaccine. We studied 140 healthy Thai children aged 2 months to 6 years from December 2011 to March 2012 who presented for vaccination. Parents recorded their childs temperature, local and systemic adverse reactions and missed days from work due to these adverse events on a diary card. Of the 140 participants, 72 received the DTwP vaccine and 68 received the DTaP vaccine. The median (IQR) age was 4 (2-6) months and the median weight was 7.1 (5.6-8.7) kg. Twenty ...

A small but groundbreaking study of infants who received vaccines containing a mercury-based preservative has found that the levels of mercury in their blood were well within the federal safety limits. The director of the Institute for Vaccine Safety at Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Neal Halsey, praised the study as much needed and done quite well, although more work needs to be done, he said, especially on underweight babies and long-term follow-up. No scientific study has proved that thimerosal causes any ill effects, but at the urging of federal health officials, vaccine makers began eliminating it in mid-1999. HOW STUDY WAS CONDUCTEDThe Lancet study, led by Dr. Michael Pichichero of the University of Rochester, tested the blood, urine and stool of 33 infants ages 2 months to 6 months, all of them seen by Rochester pediatricians injecting thimerosal- containing vaccines. In their first six months, children typically receive three doses of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine, one or two for

Beneficial non-specific reduction in hospital admissions for respiratory infections following MMR and MenC vaccinations in the Netherlands. We appreciate that Tielemans et al.(1), using Dutch population data on vaccinations and hospital admission for infectious diseases, tested our findings of non-specific effects (NSEs) of the live attenuated measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine in Denmark(2). We found the transition from the third DTaP-IPV-Hib (DTP3) to MMR to be associated with a hazards ratio (HR) of 0.86 (95%CI=0.84-0.88). The Dutch study finds much stronger beneficial effect estimates for the transition from the fourth DTaP-IPV-Hib-PCV (DTP4) to MMR+MenC (HR for all admissions of 0.40 (0.38-0.41); for >1 day admissions 0.62 (0.57-0.67)), but also strong beneficial effect estimates for the previous transition from DTP3-to-DTP4 (HR all admissions 0.48 (0.46-0.51); >1 day 0.69 (0.63-0.76)). The authors conclude that healthy vaccinee bias at least partly explains the lower rates of admission ...

The grant brings the total EC contributions and pledges to an equivalent of US$ 115 million for the period 2003-2012. This total includes todays €20 million plus the €10 million recently committed at the GAVI pledging conference. Todays grant, financed in agreement with the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States, will allow close to 40 GAVI-eligible countries in the region to benefit from the pentavalent vaccine which provides protection against five diseases in one injection. This 5-in-1 vaccine helps to lower shipping costs, limits waste and environmental impact, and reduces the number of injections needed - making it easier, quicker and safer to deliver the vaccine. In 2010 alone, some 28 million children were immunised with pentavalent vaccine with support from the GAVI Alliance.. ...
Shan5™ is a pentavalent vaccine that was developed by Shantha Biotechnics (a Sanofi company) for the prevention of diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., referenced a study showing that African children had a five to ten-fold increase in mortality after receiving the DTP vaccine.
Despite the advantages of the 5-in-1 pentavalent vaccine, political will to drive widespread roll-out was lacking -- until GAVI support played a key role in changing market conditions.

In 1974, the World Health Organization (WHO) established the Expanded Programme on Immunization to ensure that all children have access to routinely recommended vaccines (1).* Despite improvement in global coverage with the third dose of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) vaccine (DTP3), from 5% in 1974 to 83% in 2011, almost one fifth of the worlds children still had not received their third dose of the DTP series during their first year of life. In May 2012, the World Health Assembly endorsed the Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP) to guide the Decade of Vaccines vision to extend benefits of immunization to all persons. GVAPs key indicators include achieving and sustaining 90% national DTP3 coverage and ≥80% DTP3 coverage in every district by 2015. During 2012, as in the 2 preceding years, an estimated 83% of infants worldwide received 3 doses of DTP vaccine; however, coverage varied among the WHO regions. Among 194 WHO member states, 131 (68%) achieved ≥90% DTP3 national coverage, and 59 ...

SmithKline Beecham has developed a tetravalent vaccine consisting of diphtheria and tetanus toxoids, whole-cell pertussis, and a recombinant hepatitis B surface
Prescribed by the Indian governments immunization program, Pentavalent vaccine will benefit more than 14 lakh infants in the two Indian states.
The number of countries reaching and sustaining 90% coverage of children with routine life-saving vaccinations has doubled since 2000.. Updated data on the status of immunization worldwide in 2014 reveal that 129 countries, 6 more than in 2013, now immunize at least 90% of their children with the required 3 doses of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis containing vaccines (DTP3).. In 2012, all 194 WHO Member States endorsed the Global Vaccine Action Plan (GVAP), and committed to ensuring no one misses out on vital immunizations, with a target of 90% DTP3 vaccination coverage in all countries by 2015. Earlier this year WHO warned that 5 of the 6 targets, including the DTP3 coverage target, contained in the GVAP were worryingly off-track, with only one target, for the introduction of under-utilized vaccines, showing sufficient progress.. The new data highlight the fact that 65 countries will require game changing strategies in order to meet the GVAP goal. Among them, 6 countries with less than 50% ...

The quality of the routine immunization coverage data was confirmed by an external Data Quality Audit (DQA) commissioned by GAVI in 2003, in which Zambia achieved a verification factor of 0.79 and received awards for increasing routine coverage in subsequent years, particularly DTP3 coverage among children under the age of one.. Purpose/Objective:. A post introduction evaluation (PIE) is recommended by WHO for all countries that have introduced a new vaccine. Ideally, a PIE should be conducted within 6-12 months of introduction, (a) to allow enough time for programme scale up, collect data and develop potential long-lasting problems due to introduction, and (b) early enough to correct any major problems related to the introduction. The PIE for Zambia was conducted two years after the switch from liquid-lyophilised to fully liquid pentavalent. Methodology:. Prior to arrival, eight Districts within four Provinces were selected based on the level of performance, to include good, medium and poor ...

The Tien Shan in central Asia is the worlds largest and most active intracontinental orogen, with a shortening rate of 20 mm/yr. Its tectonic reactivation started 20-25 Ma, which has been attributed to the India-Eurasia collision. Despite many geological and geophysical studies in the Tien Shan, the mechanism of building this intraplate mountain belt remains debatable. Here I constructed a 3-D shear-wave velocity model beneath the central Tien Shan using Rayleigh-wave data recorded at 41 broadband stations in the study area. Phase velocities are obtained from the two-plane-wave inversion at periods of 20 to 133 s and from the ambient noise tomography at 8 to 30 s and are used to determine shear-wave velocity variations beneath the central Tien Shan. Low-velocity anomalies in the upper crust correlate well with thick sediments in the Tarim basin, Lake Issky Kul, and Naryn basin. The lowest velocity in the lower crust is beneath the central high range, suggesting a weak crust. A fast velocity ...
6. What are some ways to maximize the non-specific effects of manual therapy? a. The intention of my manual techniques is to improve tissue physiology and movement quality and explaining this intention probably maximizes the neurophysiological effects of manual therapy. Some of the things that matter include: trying to understand patients point of view, explaining their condition, explaining the plan before doing it, giving options, considering their expectations, giving a heads up if there should be any soreness, etc. All of these things will together build confidence, rapport, understanding and maximize any non-specific effects. 7. What kind of physiological effects do you think is going on when you perform manual? A lot of evidence is showing that mostly neurophysiological effects occur after hands-on treatment. For example, it takes tons of force to deform a fascia in cadaver studies.. a. I dont think the absence of evidence for tissue changes is the same as evidence of the absence of ...
