SUMMARY. An increasing number of new and improved vaccines to prevent childhood diseases are being introduced. Combination vaccines represent one solution to the problem of increased numbers of injections during single clinic visits. This statement provides general guidance on the use of combination vaccines and related issues and questions.. To minimize the number of injections children receive, parenteral combination vaccines should be used, if licensed and indicated for the patients age, instead of their equivalent component vaccines. Hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccines, in either monovalent or combination formulations from the same or different manufacturers, are interchangeable for sequential doses in the vaccination series. However, using acellular pertussis vaccine product(s) from the same manufacturer is preferable for at least the first three doses, until studies demonstrate the interchangeability of these vaccines. Immunization providers should stock ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of a vaccine product containing type III secreted proteins on the probability of Escherichia coli O157:H7 fecal shedding and mucosal colonization in feedlot cattle. AU - Peterson, R. E.. AU - Klopfenstein, T. J.. AU - Moxley, R. A.. AU - Erickson, G. E.. AU - Hinkley, S.. AU - Bretschneider, G.. AU - Berberov, E. M.. AU - Rogan, D.. AU - Smith, D. R.. PY - 2007/11. Y1 - 2007/11. N2 - Preharvest intervention strategies to reduce Escherichia coli O157:H7 in cattle have been sought as a means to reduce human foodborne illness. A blinded clinical trial was conducted to test the effect of a vaccine product on the probability that feedlot steers, under conditions of natural exposure, shed E. coli O157:H7 in feces, are colonized by this organism in the terminal rectum, or develop a humoral response to the respective antigens. Steers (n = 288) were assigned randomly to 36 pens (eight head per pen), and pens were randomized to vaccination treatment in a balanced fashion within six ...
Vaccines in vitro characterization is required to identify optimal formulation conditions to ensure physical, chemical, and biological integrity of antigens and adjuvants. Analytical methods currently in use are mostly suitable for the characterization of unformulated antigens - requiring the complete desorption from aluminum-based adjuvants - and are not always able to reveal individual antigens in vaccine combinations. Here, the Luminex technology is proposed as proof of concept for the development of an improved analytical method for vaccine characterization, based on the use of specific antibodies bound to magnetic microspheres presenting unique digital signatures for simultaneous recognition of respective antigens in the entire formulation. TdaP combination vaccines were chosen as a model to develop an assay able to quantify acellular pertussis antigens and their levels of adsorption to adjuvant at the same time. This assay was directly applicable on the commercial vaccine product, avoiding ...
On February 27, 2008, new information was presented to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) regarding the risk for febrile seizures among children aged 12--23 months after administration of the combination measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (MMRV) vaccine (ProQuad®, Merck & Co., Inc., Whitehouse Station, New Jersey). This report summarizes current knowledge regarding the risk for febrile seizures after MMRV vaccination and presents updated ACIP recommendations that were issued after presentation of the new information. These updated recommendations remove ACIPs previous preference for administering combination MMRV vaccine over separate injections of equivalent component vaccines (i.e., measles, mumps, and rubella [MMR] vaccine and varicella vaccine). The combination tetravalent MMRV vaccine was licensed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on September 6, 2005, for use in children aged 12 months--12 years (1). MMRV vaccine can be used in place of trivalent MMR ...
Vaccination compliance will predictably become a significant concern as current schedules approach the limit of public acceptance [1] and new vaccines become available. The development of combination vaccines is a common practice that addresses the concern of repeated visits to the clinic by reducing the total number of injections required compared with administration schedules for the monovalent vaccines. Yet, physical, chemical, and biological interactions between the components of combination vaccines must be considered to avoid detrimental effects on safety or efficacy. For example, when the Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) vaccine was combined with diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis vaccine, a decrease in antibody titer for the Hib vaccine was observed [2]. Thus, there is a need to develop new approaches for delivery of multiple vaccines.. We evaluated delivery of multiple vaccines intradermally (i.d.) to physically isolate each component, thus directly preventing formulation ...

Immunovaccine Inc., a clinical stage vaccine company, presented positive data from clinical and preclinical vaccine studies, including DPX-Survivac, the companys lead therapeutic cancer vaccine, this weekend at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) 2014 Annual Meeting. In a poster presentation, Immunovaccine highlighted results demonstrating that metronomic cyclophosphamide (mCPA), an immune modulating agent, enhanced the immunogenicity of DepoVax™-based vaccines in preclinical cancer models consistent with previously reported Phase I data showing a similar enhancement of DPX-Survivac in patients. Importantly, the animal studies demonstrated the combination therapys ability to eliminate advanced tumors that could not be treated with vaccine or mCPA alone. Tumors exposed to the combination therapy specifically exhibited an increase in T cell activation markers, suggesting increased immune-mediated anti-tumor activity at the tumor site with the vaccine/mCPA therapy and further ...
The current study demonstrates efficacy of the M hyo and PCV2 combination vaccine in 3 week old piglets in the presence of high PCV2 MDI level. Results of this study are in agreement with previous findings regarding the efficacy of the combination vaccine in the face of average PCV2 MDI levels (9.38 log2) [25].. Definitive diagnosis of EP is based on the demonstration of typical lung lesions [3]. The mean LLS in this study were significantly reduced in the vaccinated pigs, indicating the test products efficacy against M. hyo. In addition, lung lesions were also less severe in vaccinated pigs as nearly two thirds of vaccinated animals had a score , 10 compared to more than half of the controls with a score , 10. This finding further supports the vaccines efficacy against EP.. Moreover, during the finishing period, vaccinated pigs had a significantly better ADWG and the overall gain was 18 g per day greater than in the control pigs. The ADWG results were also in agreement with several previous ...

FRIDAY, April 14, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- An experimental vaccine therapy shows promise in treating glioblastoma, according to a study published online April 14 in Clinical Cancer Research.. Investigators tested the safety of the chemotherapy/vaccine combination in 11 patients. Patients received an intensified dose of temozolomide, followed by at least six vaccine injections. The vaccine therapy targets cytomegalovirus antigen pp65.. The vaccine treatments were well tolerated, the researchers found. Four of the 11 patients in this study survived for more than five years after vaccine/chemotherapy treatment.. "While not a controlled efficacy study, the survival results were surprising, and they suggest the possibility that combining the vaccine with a more intense regimen of this chemotherapy promotes a strong cooperative benefit," lead author Kristen Batich, M.D., Ph.D., from the Duke Cancer Institute in New Haven, Conn., said in an institute news release. "Our strategy was to capitalize on the ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Short conserved sequences of HIV-1 are highly immunogenic and shift immunodominance. AU - Yang, Otto O.. AU - Ali, Ayub. AU - Kasahara, Noriyuki. AU - Faure-Kumar, Emmanuelle. AU - Bae, Jin Young. AU - Picker, Louis J.. AU - Park, Haesun. PY - 2015/1/1. Y1 - 2015/1/1. N2 - Cellular immunity is pivotal in HIV-1 pathogenesis but is hampered by viral sequence diversity. An approach to minimize this diversity is to focus immunity on conserved proteome sequences; therefore, we selected four relatively conserved regions (Gag amino acids 148 to 214 and 250 to 335, Env amino acids 521 to 606, and Nef amino acids 106 to 148), each created in three mosaics, to provide better coverage of M-group HIV-1 sequences. A conserved-region vaccine (CRV) delivering genes for these four regions as equal mixtures of three mosaics each (each region at a separate injection site) was compared to a whole-protein vaccine (WPV) delivering equimolar amounts of genes for whole Gag, Env, and Nef as clade B ...
There are no contraindications to the simultaneous administration of multiple individual vaccines, although the use of licensed combination vaccines can significantly reduce the required number of injections during the first 2 years of life. Combination DTaP/Hib vaccine should not be used for primary immunization of infants because it results in a blunted, suboptimal response to Hib; the combination may be used for booster immunizations. Simultaneous administration of the most widely used live and inactivated vaccines has not resulted in impaired antibody responses or in elevated rates of adverse reactions. In fact, this approach increases the likelihood that a child will ultimately be fully immunized. The simultaneous administration of vaccines is useful in any age group when the potential exists for exposure to multiple infectious diseases during travel to endemic countries. Live-virus vaccines may be given together on the same day; if this approach is not feasible, an interval of at least 30 ...

Dr Anand says: "Just look at the Rapid Responses in the bmj over the past few years. Find a SINGLE response from a public health epidemiologist or physician or specialist, or from manufacturers of vaccines, replying to questions from patients carers, from Mr Stone, or Dr Noel Thomas, or from me, a retired doctor who spent a professional life-time promoting immunisation of the susceptible against a prevailing infection."[1]. At this time we have little or no accountability for vaccination policy and practice. Citizens such as John Stone and myself are raising legitimate questions about increasing vaccine product use and safety, but the authorities refuse to engage. Old school doctors such as Jog Anand, Noel Thomas and Allan Cunningham are commendable for trying to raise valid discussion relevant to vaccination policy. It seems this work is left to the retired doctors, how many currently practicing doctors would have the courage to rock the boat in these currently hostile times? Its ...

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
Summary The need for a single childhood immunization schedule prompted the unification of previous vaccine recommendations made by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). In addition to presenting the newly recommended schedule for the administration of vaccines during childhood, this report addresses the previous differences between the AAP and ACIP childhood vaccination schedules and the rationale for changing previous recommendations. INTRODUCTION Since 1988, the U.S. childhood immunization schedule has rapidly expanded to accommodate the introduction of new, universally recommended vaccines (i.e., Haemophilus influenzae type b {Hib} conjugate {1,2} and hepatitis B {2,3} vaccines) and recommendations for a second dose of measles-mumps-rubella vaccine (MMR) (4,5) and the use of acellular pertussis vaccines (2,6). For approximately 30 years, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Committee on Infectious ...

Natural News) Have you ever questioned why todays children are receiving over 75 doses of vaccine, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)? The CDC, owning several vaccine patents, is the vaccine industry enforcement arm and policy guide for pedestrians and hospitals in the U.S. The CDCs "childhood immunization schedule" is so intense, pediatricians are now pushing shots for unborn babies still living inside their mothers. Forty-nine or more doses of vaccine are strongly recommended before a child reaches kindergarten age. State legislatures rapidly introduce new bills that try to restrict a parents rights when it comes to making medical decisions for their children. Every state has in place a legal framework that forces parents to either obtain a written medical, religious or philosophical exemption to vaccination in order for children to attend public learning institutions.. Medical choice and informed consent was once an inherent right of parents; now parents must seek ...
Healthy 4-6 y old children from Italy and Sweden immunized with DTPa and inactivated or oral polio vaccines at 3, 5 and 11-12 months of age, received 1 dose of combined DTPa-IPV (n = 211) or DTPa+IPV as separate doses (n = 205) in a randomized trial. The pre-booster seroprotection rates were similar in each group and were above 60% against all antigens except diphtheria (31.3% and 37.0%) and PT (21.5% and 25.9%) in the DTPa-IPV and DTPa+IPV groups, respectively. At least 99.5% of subjects had seroprotective antibody levels against diphtheria, tetanus and polioviruses and ≥96% showed a vaccine response to each pertussis antigen after vaccination. Post-booster antibody levels increased at least 51-fold for anti-diphtheria and anti-tetanus, at least 18-fold for anti-pertussis antibodies and at least 32-fold for antibodies against all 3 poliovirus types, compared to prior levels. DTPa-IPV was comparable to DTPa+IPV in terms of seroprotection rates and mean antibody levels against each vaccine ...
In this study, we used the unique data resources of the VSD to evaluate the association between injection site and risk of medically attended local reactions to IM vaccines commonly given to children 1 to 6 years of age. In evaluations of IM vaccines given alone, we found that local reactions occurred more frequently after a DTaP vaccine than after an inactivated influenza or hepatitis A vaccine and that injection of a DTaP vaccine in the arm was associated with a significantly higher risk compared with administration in the thigh, whereas there was no association of injection site and risk of a local reaction for the other 2 vaccine types. A higher risk of local reactions with arm administration of DTaP vaccine was also suggested by the results of analyses of vaccine combinations that included a DTaP vaccine.. The current ACIP recommendations, which were adopted in 2011, state that IM vaccines given to children 3 years of age and older should be administered in the deltoid, and for toddlers ...
Hib vaccine is usually given as 3 or 4 doses (depending on brand). Hib vaccine may be given as a stand-alone vaccine, or as part of a combination vaccine (a type of vaccine that combines more than one vaccine together into one shot).. Infants will usually get their first dose of Hib vaccine at 2 months of age, and will usually complete the series at 12-15 months of age.. Children between 12-15 months and 5 years of age who have not previously been completely vaccinated against Hib may need 1 or more doses of Hib vaccine.. Children over 5 years old and adults usually do not receive Hib vaccine, but it might be recommended for older children or adults with asplenia or sickle cell disease, before surgery to remove the spleen, or following a bone marrow transplant. Hib vaccine may also be recommended for people 5 to 18 years old with HIV. Hib vaccine may be given at the same time as other vaccines.. ...

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Keystone Policy Center worked together in 2011 to gather input from the public and national stakeholders to inform decision-making related to the childhood immunization schedule. The Keystone-led process engaged 277 local stakeholders and interested members of the public in a pilot project designed to get input regarding the values that could inform Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommendations about whether or how to add new vaccines to the childhood immunization schedule. Participants had a general discussion about vaccines that protect children from rare but severe illnesses and a specific discussion about recently licensed and soon-to-be licensed meningococcal vaccines for infants.. The four public meetings were part of a process that also engaged national-level stakeholders in the same discussion. National stakeholder meetings involved participants from a number of organizations, including the American Academy of ...
