Ousmane M. Diop, PhD1, Cara C. Burns, PhD2, Steven G. Wassilak, MD3, Olen M. Kew, PhD2 (Author affiliations at end of text). In 1988, the World Health Assembly resolved to eradicate poliomyelitis worldwide (1). One of the main tools used in polio eradication efforts has been live, attenuated oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV), an inexpensive vaccine easily administered by trained volunteers. OPV might require several doses to induce immunity, but then it provides long-term protection against paralytic disease through durable humoral immunity. Rare cases of vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis can occur among immunologically normal OPV recipients, their contacts, and persons who are immunodeficient. In addition, vaccine-derived polioviruses (VDPVs) can emerge in areas with low OPV coverage to cause polio outbreaks and can replicate for years in persons who have primary, B-cell immunodeficiencies. This report updates previous surveillance summaries (2) and describes VDPVs detected worldwide ...
To compare the immunogenicity of routine versus mass campaign doses of oral poliovirus vaccine OPV, serum neutralizing antibodies were measured in 254 children before and after two mass vaccination campaigns in Jordan. Precampaign seroprevalences to poliovirus types 1,2, and 3 in children who had received three, four, or five routine doses of...
Singapore participated in the WHO EPI protocol for rapid assessment of serological response to three doses of standard oral poliovirus vaccine. The 100% seropositive finding of thirty infants below one year old is no proof of seroconversion rate to the Trivalent Oral Poliovirus Vaccine (TOPV) administered. Investigation of 100 cord blood samples showed that passively transferred maternal poliovirus neutralising antibody cannot be relied upon for protection of infants against poliomyelitis. This paper emphasises the importance of vaccine potency testing and serves as a timely reminder that although the last case of indigenous poliomyelitis was recorded in 1974, non Sabin-like (wild) polioviruses are being isolated from imported cases and foreigners hospitalised in Singapore, and unexpectedly, from the conjunctiva and pharynx of Singaporeans treated for conjunctivitis. It discusses the WHO (World Health Organization) Plan of Action for Eradication of Polio in the Western Pacific Region which ...

This public information brochure, titled "Important Questions & Answers about Sabin Oral Sundays" provided residents of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County with basic information about the oral polio vaccine, explained where to go to get the vaccine, and encouraged participation in the 1962 "Sabin Oral Sundays" mass immunization program. The brochure is four pages in length and measures 5.5" x 8.5" (13.97 x 21.59 cm). Approximately 1.5 million people received the vaccine by ingesting sugar cubes. Dr. Albert Sabin (1906-1993) was born in Poland and moved to Cincinnati in 1939 to join the faculty of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. Sabin developed the oral polio vaccine, which provided stronger immunity and lasted longer than the dead-cell vaccine developed by Joseph Salk. The first "Sabin Sunday" was held on April 24, 1960 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Between 1962 and 1964, approximately 100 million people of all ages received the vaccine in the United States. Poliomyelitis, also called polio ...
In their randomised controlled trial, Edwin J Asturias and colleagues (July 9, p 158)1 reported a robust humoral immune response after three doses of bivalent type 1 and 3 oral poliovirus vaccine (bOPV) combined with zero, one, or two doses of inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV), confirming that bOPV is highly immunogenic when administered either with or without IPV. In their study, 6-week-old full-term Latin American infants due for their first polio vaccinations were randomly assigned by permuted block randomisation to five schedules.. ...
John Salamone of Oakton, Va., the father of a 6-year-old boy who developed polio after receiving the oral vaccine, told members of the committee: "When David was immunized in 1990, we simply had no idea that this would happen or that we had choices in the type of polio vaccine he could receive. Obviously, if we could have that fateful day back we would have chosen a safer, just as effective, injectable vaccine.". But some doctors said they feared that the inactivated vaccine would not provide an equal level of protection. Oral polio vaccine is known to give protection against contracting polio through the digestive tract -- something the injections do not provide as effectively, said Dr. Dixie E. Snider, associate director for science of the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention here.. "By giving an individual the oral polio vaccine you add a dimension that you dont get from the I.P.V.," Dr. Snider said.. Oral polio vaccine continues to be recommended as the most effective ...
The oral poliovirus vaccine (OPV) contains a live, attenuated (weakened) vaccine-virus. When this vaccine is administered, the weakened vaccine-virus replicates in the intestine and enters into the bloodstream, triggering a protective immune response. However, during this replication process, some of the vaccine-virus may genetically mutate from the original attenuated strain and become neurovirulent (able to cause paralysis and circulate in communities). The neurovirulent virus is referred to as vaccine-derived poliovirus (VDPV). This is a very rare event. In the 10 years leading up to 2015 there were around 750 cases of paralysis caused by VDPVs reported worldwide.. There are three recognised categories of VDPV:. ...
A cornerstone of the polio eradication strategy is the need to ensure high (more than 80%) immunization coverage of children in the first year of life, with at least three doses of oral polio vaccine as part of national routine immunization schedules.. While routine immunization alone cannot eradicate the disease, good routine oral polio vaccine coverage increases population immunity, reduces the incidence of polio and makes eradication feasible.. If uniformly high immunization coverage is not maintained, pockets of non-immunized children build up, favouring continued spread and outbreaks of the poliovirus.. According to WHO/UNICEF immunization coverage estimates, 86% of infants received three doses of oral polio vaccine in 2010, compared with 75% in 1990.. Polio-free countries must continue to ensure high levels of immunization coverage to prevent the re-establishment of poliovirus through importations from other countries. This can happen through international travellers, migrant populations ...

Science, 12 November 1999; Volume 286, pp. 1305-1306. Thanks to immunization, polio like smallpox may soon be eradicated. But did the trials of early polio vaccines trigger AIDS? The central thesis of Edward Hoopers new book, The River, is that they did. Hooper argues that both AIDS viruses, HIV-1 and HIV-2, first infected humans via contaminated oral poliovirus vaccines (OPV). He claims these vaccines were grown in kidney cell cultures derived in the 1950s from chimpanzees and sooty mangabeys, respectively, that were infected with simian immunodeficiency viruses (SIVs). Although this notion has been explored before, no one previously has researched the history of polio vaccine trials and early AIDS cases so exhaustively. Hooper builds up layer upon layer of circumstantial evidence and plausible conjecture, until he declares: "The reader must make up his mind or her mind. I have made up mine." Yet after having read his 858 pages of text and 175 pages of notes and references, I remain undecided ...
OPV is (ORAL POLIO VACCINE) The action of oral polio vaccine (OPV) is two-pronged: OPV produces antibodies in the blood (humoral or serum immunity) to all three types of poliovirus. In the event of infection, this will protect the individual against polio paralysis by preventing the spread of poliovirus to the nervous system. OPV is probably the main reason why mass campaigns with OPV can rapidly stop person-to-person transmission of wild poliovirus. IPV is (INACTIVATED POLIO VACCINE ) Inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) needs to be injected and works by producing protective antibodies in the blood (serum immunity) - thus preventing the spread of poliovirus to the central nervous system. However, it induces only very low levels of immunity to polivirus locally, inside the gut. As a result, it provides individual protection against polio paralysis but, unlike OPV, cannot prevent the spread of wild polio virus ...
The two new cases-one in Manono district, and one in Ankoro district, Tanganika province had onset dates of Nov. 9 and Nov. 17, respectively. This brings the total cVDPV2 cases in DRC this year to 12.. Paid Internship in India. According to GPEI, Vaccine-derived polioviruses (VDPVs) are rare strains of poliovirus that have genetically mutated from the strain contained in the oral polio vaccine. The oral polio vaccine contains a live, attenuated(weakened) vaccine-virus. When a child is vaccinated,the weakened vaccine-virus replicates in the intestine and enters into the bloodstream, triggering a protective immune response in the child. Like wild poliovirus, the child excretes the vaccine-virus for a period of six to eight weeks. Importantly, as it is excreted, some of the vaccine-virus may no longer be the same as the original vaccine-virus as it has genetically altered during replication. This is called a VDPV.. On very rare occasions, if a population is seriously under-immunized, there are ...
Why are the Sabin infectious, attenuated poliovirus vaccines still used when they are known to cause vaccine-associated paralysis in a small number of recipients?
This 11" x 14" (24.9 by 35.6 cm) photograph shows recipients of the Type II Sabin oral polio vaccine immunization program in Youngstown in 1962. In this image parents and children can be seen lining up to get vaccinations at one of the 18 polio vaccinations centers in Mahoning County. The immunization program was sponsored by the Mahoning County Medical Society and was endorsed by the American Medial Association. The vaccine developed by Albert B. Sabin, which uses a weakened form of the disease-causing virus, was easier to administer than the injection developed by Jonas Salk, in which the virus is inactivated or killed. Colorless and tasteless, the Sabin vaccine could be dispensed by dropper, mixed with distilled water, or put into a sugar cube. Two phases of mass immunizations using the Sabin vaccine occurred in late 1961 and early 1962 in Youngstown, one on November 30 and December 2, 1961 and the other on February 15 and 17, 1962. During each phase approximately 130,000 Mahoning County ...

In 1960, it was determined that the rhesus monkey kidney cells used to prepare the poliovirus vaccines were infected with the SV40 virus (Simian Virus-40).[৩০] SV40 was also discovered in 1960 and is a naturally occurring virus that infects monkeys. In 1961, SV40 was found to cause tumors in rodents.[৩১] More recently, the virus was found in certain forms of cancer in humans, for instance brain and bone tumors, pleural and peritoneal mesothelioma, and some types of non-Hodgkins lymphoma.[৩২][৩৩] However, it has not been determined that SV40 causes these cancers.[৩৪] SV40 was found to be present in stocks of the injected form of the polio vaccine (IPV) in use between 1955 to 1963.[৩০] It is not found in the OPV form.[৩০] Over 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine between 1955 to 1963 when a proportion of vaccine was contaminated with SV40; it has been estimated that 10-30 million Americans may have received a dose of vaccine contaminated ...
Tests performed by three independent laboratories on 1950s-era polio vaccine samples from The Wistar Institute, Philadelphia, PA, failed to find any traces of SIV, HIV-1, or DNA indicating that chimpanzee cells were used to prepare the vaccine, according to the scientist who coordinated the testing. Dr. Claudio Basilico, chairman of microbiology at New York University Medical Center and head of Wistars external AIDS/Poliovirus Advisory Committee, announced the findings today at a Royal Society meeting in London entitled "Origins of HIV and the AIDS Epidemic.". Taken together, the findings provide strong evidence to refute the theory that an oral polio vaccine prepared at The Wistar Institute and administered to people in the then Belgian Congo in the late 1950s provided the route of transmission for HIV or HIV-related viruses from chimpanzees to humans, as has been proposed by Mr. Edward Hooper in his book The River (Little, Brown and Co., 1999).. A linchpin in Hoopers theory is the ...
In the mid-1990s, during a period of less than five years, there were 13,641 documented adverse reactions to the oral polio vaccine. 6,364 of these were serious enough to require hospital emergency room visits. 540 people died. Source: Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS); OPV Vaccine Report: Doc. #14. The following story is typical of the damage associated with oral polio vaccines: "Four months ago my son was taken to a local clinic for his polio vaccine. I wasnt aware that he was going to have one, and would have prevented it if I had known. Unfortunately, he changed from that day - high-pitched screaming, smelly stools, non-stop crying, difficulty in breathing, high temperature, and lethargy. He also lost weight. Weeks of sleepless nights for all of us followed. His development ceased. He had been able to stand and move around, but he went back to remaining in basically whatever position we left him in..

This vaccination regime so effectively reduced the incidence of polio in Singapore that the surgeons whose specialty was tendon transplantation to remedy muscle weakness had to turn their hands to other skills and hospital swimming pools for treatment and rehabilitation of polio patients were closed. Meanwhile, all cases of suspected polio were closely followed by Ministry of Health doctors who took stool specimens and blood samples for us. If we isolated a poliovirus, we tried to find out if it was a vaccine virus or not (very often it was) though the technique was difficult. From the date of onset of symptoms we back-tracked and determined if it was likely that the symptoms were vaccine-related, supposing the child had been given oral poliovaccine. Our fmding was that every child that actually developed polio had not been givenpoliovaccine recently, and as a corollary, we found that children who had received the full course of three doses of poliovaccine never developed poliomyelitis. This ...

It is very important that your doctor check your progress at regular visits to make sure that this medicine is working properly and to check for unwanted effects.. While you are being treated with cisplatin, and after you stop treatment with it, do not have any immunizations (vaccinations) without your doctors approval. Cisplatin may lower your bodys resistance and there is a chance you might get the infection the immunization is meant to prevent. In addition, other persons living in your household should not take oral polio vaccine since there is a chance they could pass the polio virus on to you. Also, avoid persons who have taken oral polio vaccine within the last several months. Do not get close to them, and do not stay in the same room with them for very long. If you cannot take these precautions, you should consider wearing a protective face mask that covers the nose and mouth. ...
The Sabin Vaccine Institute is founded on the legacy and global vision of one of the pre-eminent scientific figures in the history of medicine, Dr. Albert B. Sabin. Best known as the developer of the oral live virus polio vaccine, Dr. Sabin not only dedicated his entire professional career to the elimination of human suffering though his groundbreaking medical advances, he also waged a tireless campaign against poverty and ignorance throughout his lifetime.. It was in this spirit of commitment and dedication that his longtime friends and colleagues, led by Heloisa Sabin, his widow, and Dr. H.R. Shepherd, the Founding Chairman, established the Sabin Vaccine Institute in 1993 at the time of Dr. Sabins death.. Dr. Sabin was born on August 26, 1906, in Bialystok, Poland. He emigrated to the United States with his parents in 1921 in order to avoid the persecutions directed against Jews prevalent during that era. He received his M.D. from New York University in 1931 and immediately began research on ...

Keeping in mind, the repercussions of using OPV alone, there is a dire need to move to a combination of both IPV and OPV. IPV not only carries away the risk of acquiring VAPP but also provides individual immunity. It provides better humoral immunity compared to OPV and triggers and excellent immune response and long lasting immunity to all the 3 types of polio virus strains. Moreover, it can stay effective even without proper cold storage facility for a longer time span. According to health experts, in the endemic areas, 2 doses of IPV would be more effective than 10 doses of OPV as immunization with IPV triggers an excellent immune response in most IPV recipients. They also state that that OPV (Oral Polio Vaccine) should not be administered to a child with immunodeficiency or to a child who is in close contact of a person with immunodeficiency and instead should be given IPV ...

In August 2002 and February 2003 a popular pediatric news publication, Infectious Diseases in Children, published reports from experts across the country who met to discuss this issue. Between 1955 and 1963, some of the monkey kidney cells used for the injected polio vaccine, the oral polio vaccine, and the adenovirus vaccine (used for the military...) were contaminated with SV-40 virus, which is known to cause several types of brain tumors, bone cancer, lumphoma, and mesothelioma cancer in animals. This virus has also been discovered in this same cancers in humans. The SV-40 viruses present in some human tumors today have been determined to be genetically identical to those in vaccines fifty years ago. Although the SV-40 virus is found in human tumors, it is not known if the virus causes the tumors or just happens to be living within the tumors. It is known, however, that the virus triggers these tumors in animals. It is estimated that almost 30 million people were injected with a vaccine ...
In a striking number of cases, those villages were near the rural clinics where a U.S. company had tested one of the worlds first oral polio vaccines in the late 1950s. For nearly 10 years, the former BBC reporter had been investigating the possibility that something had gone terribly wrong during the vaccination campaign -- that a monkey virus had contaminated the experimental polio vaccine and ignited the global AIDS epidemic. Last fall, the Royal Society of London, the prestigious scientific academy once presided over by Sir Isaac Newton, called the first-ever conference on the origin of the AIDS epidemic, primarily to address the theory advanced by Hooper, a non-scientist who had majored in American literature in college. By the time the historic showdown concluded, other rival and conflicting theories would emerge -- including one involving the widespread use of contaminated needles -- and Hooper would not be the only one to ask the chilling question: The results were disturbing -- half the
