  • conjugate vaccine
  • In subjects 11 to 18 years of age, lower levels for antibodies to pertactin were observed when BOOSTRIX was administered concomitantly with meningococcal conjugate vaccine (serogroups A, C, Y, and W-135) as compared with BOOSTRIX administered first. (nih.gov)
  • All Hib vaccines that are currently used are conjugate vaccine. (wikipedia.org)
  • Prior to introduction of the conjugate vaccine, Hib was a leading cause of childhood meningitis, pneumonia, and epiglottitis in the United States, causing an estimated 20,000 cases a year in the early 1980s, mostly in children under 5 years old. (wikipedia.org)
  • Since optimal contact between B cells and T cells is required (via MHC II) to maximize antibody production, it is reasoned that the conjugate vaccine allows B cells to properly recruit T cells, this is in contrast to the polysaccharide form in which it is speculated that B cells do not interact optimally with T cells leading to the TI interaction. (wikipedia.org)

  • doses
  • A survey conducted by eight different state health departments of 583 physicians indicated approximately one-third had had difficulties in obtaining DTP vaccine, and approximately one-half were following the current recommendations to defer the DTP doses for 18-month-old and 4- to 6-year-old children. (cdc.gov)
  • Practitioners should not administer partial doses of DTP vaccine in an effort to make the vaccine go further, since the degree of protection afforded by such partial doses is not certain. (cdc.gov)
  • It is important for practitioners to establish recall systems to ensure that children whose doses are deferred are recalled for the DTP vaccine they need once supplies become available. (cdc.gov)
  • Because some children will have their 18-month or 'preschool dose' of DTP vaccine deferred this spring and summer, it may be necessary for day-care centers or school systems to allow provisional enrollment of such children until they can receive the needed doses. (cdc.gov)
