Summary of "Safety Follow-up of a Dengue Vaccine When Administered Concomitantly with a Yellow Fever Vaccine in Healthy Toddlers in Colombia."

This was a safety follow-up study conducted in 382 toddlers in Colombia who had last received dengue vaccine (CYD-TDV) 2 years before. A review of local municipal epidemiologic reports for dengue cases was also conducted for ~28 months postimmunization. One case of clinical dengue was reported; it was neither considered as severe nor related to the study vaccine.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An acute infectious, eruptive, febrile disease caused by four antigenically related but distinct serotypes of the DENGUE VIRUS. It is transmitted by the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes, especially A. aegypti. Classical dengue (dengue fever) is self-limiting and characterized by fever, myalgia, headache, and rash. DENGUE HEMORRHAGIC FEVER is a more virulent form of dengue virus infection and a separate clinical entity. (From Dorland, 28th ed)

A live vaccine containing attenuated poliovirus, types I, II, and III, grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture, used for routine immunization of children against polio. This vaccine induces long-lasting intestinal and humoral immunity. Killed vaccine induces only humoral immunity. Oral poliovirus vaccine should not be administered to immunocompromised individuals or their household contacts. (Dorland, 28th ed)

The relationship between an elicited ADAPTIVE IMMUNE RESPONSE and the dose of the vaccine administered.

A distinct and virulent form of DENGUE characterized by thrombocytopenia and hemoconcentration (grades I and II) and distinguished by a positive tourniquet test. When accompanied by circulatory failure and shock (grades III and IV), it is called dengue shock syndrome. (From Dorland, 28th ed)

Active immunization where vaccine is administered for therapeutic or preventive purposes. This can include administration of immunopotentiating agents such as BCG vaccine and Corynebacterium parvum as well as biological response modifiers such as interferons, interleukins, and colony-stimulating factors in order to directly stimulate the immune system.
