Inactivated poliovaccine: adverse reactions and antibody responses

Acta paediatrica Scandinavica

Adverse reactions and antbody responses after inactivated poliovaccine were studied in 380 children. Fever reaction (greater than or equal to 37.5 degree C rectally) was recorded in 14% of children after the first poliovirus vaccination and in 19% after the second. Restlessness was reported in 15% and 14% of the chidren. Fever reaction exceeding 38.5 degree C was seen in 5% of the vaccines. Before the first vaccination at the age of six month 29% of the 48 children had antibodies against poliovirus type 1 and 2 and 43% against type 3. The first vaccination induced no significant changes in antibody titers. After the second vaccination antibody responses were low and 35%, 9%, and 35% remained seronegative to types 1, 2 and 3, respectively. After the third vaccination at the age of two years the respective geometric mean titers were 1:67, 1:335 and 1:48. No measurable antibodies were found to type 1 in 23%, to type 2 in 2%, and to type 3 in 10%. Only one child was triplenegative. All seronegative children were revaccinated and in all vaccinees a seroconversion ocurred two weeks after the booster dose. The combination of inactivated poliovaccine to DPT (Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis) vaccine induced no significant change in polio...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
